Firefighter Jim Clancy (David Conrad), Melinda's husband, knows that being an intermediary between the living and dead can take an emotional toll on his wife and worries that he might not be able to protect her as well as he would like. Melinda has also recently revealed her gift to new friend and employee, Delia Banks (Camryn Manheim), a single mom of teenager Ned Banks (Christoph Sanders). Melinda fears what the consequences might be of drawing Delia into this unconventional world, as Delia, unlike her son Ned, is a bit skeptical of Melinda's gift - although she loves Melinda unconditionally as a friend. Melinda has also shared her secret with Eli James (Jamie Kennedy), a psychology professor at Rockland University, who is a unique individual - he has the gift of hearing ghosts, but not seeing them. For her part, Melinda accepts her unique abilities as a blessing and sometime curse, but always helps her clients, alive or dead, find emotional closure. Currently in its fourth season, Ghost Whisperer plunges into new territory by literally rocking the foundations of the series with a new mythology - Love Transcends Death.
Plenty of episodes aren't centered on the hospital: a paranoid entrepreneur whose security system detects a ghost; marital strife between two real estate agents that continues after death; a clairvoyant comic-book artist; a ghost/clown/detective; and family secrets that threaten to ruin a romance between Melinda's friend Eli (Jamie Kennedy) and a childhood sweetheart. But the hospital proves an effective theater for creepy doings because, let's face it, hospitals--with their sterile environments and bloody surgeries, rife with life-and-death stakes and basic human vulnerability--are creepy. Though the conflict between shinies and shadows resolves fairly flimsily in the final episode, the show does an excellent job of building it up over the course of the season--as is so often the case, clues and hints are much more tantalizing than discovering what actually lies underneath it all. The extra features of Ghost Whisperer: The Final Season are middling--the featurettes and webisodes are a step up from the previous season, but the interactive games are still dopey. But the season itself is strong and sure to satisfy the series' fans. --Bret Fetzer

Shuffling the time slots every few months, changing days to see if it will go up against another network's most popular show, showing re-runs for 3 or 4 weeks every few new episodes.... Just stand behind your show and leave it alone and you'd really see how popular it is you business school morons. I don't think we'll ever see a network hold onto a show for 10 years again... gone are the days when a show like Friends or Seinfeld can fluctuate in ratings but still stay until THEY want to leave. I miss the days when TV didn't disappoint me on a daily basis. We're really not all as stupid as you think we are Hollywood, we're getting tired of your crappy movies, re-makes of EVERYTHING that has ever made money in the past and your cheap reality TV shows. Just tell me Medium isn't next!
Ghost Whisperer should NOT be sent into the Light!
Jennifer Love Hewitt is the perfect acting match for anyone having the ability to communicate with the Spirits...think me crazy, but I believe there ARE people out there who do exactly what she does. I had an out of body experience when I was 5 years old. I was very sick with a fever of 105.6 (according to my parents) and I truly believe I died for a short time. I could clearly see my body laying in the bed as I looked down on it from high above. I witnessed my mother rushing my body to the tub and pouring ice over it until I returned to it. That memory is burned into my mind like it happened yesterday.
As members of my family have passed on over the years, I have always felt a calm, very serene presence in the minutes, hours and up to a few days after their deaths that has made me a true believer of "The Light" and an afterlife. And because of "The Ghost Whisperer" I'm not the least bit afraid of death and am actually looking forward to it.
In my humble opinion, every episode has an extrememly emotional cleansing effect that I carry with me for days, weeks, months at a time...some are more powerful than others.
I want to own every single episode of this one.
The strength is in the story and benefits from having some terrific actors playing the rolls of the haunted and their ghosts. Not only the the guest stars (including Mike Farrell) nail their roles, but even those actors outside the primary story line were perfect. "Awards" got to Bryan Batt, David Andrews and Farrell.
Jennifer Love Hewitt as usual has to play the link between the show's tragic, comic, dramatic and romantic scenes without losing grip on her own character. Despite all the moving pieces in this story she never puts a foot wrong, and Camryn Manheim also is successfully stretched in many different directions in her roll. Other cast regulars also nailed their parts, as usual.
Show creator John Gray gets the writing credit for one of the best one hour episodes of any TV show I've ever seen.

This is a great show but after the events involving Jim in Season 4, Season 5 disappointed. There was never any mention of Jim's predicament. I thought that was weird. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Farmwife68
