This show has a likable, great cast. I honestly keep forgetting that Patricia Arquette is acting. She is so convincing that it's hard not to take the character of Allison seriously, instead of "what a loon." I'm a mom and it's WONDERFUL to see someone who looks like a mom instead of glamourous star with tons of makeup. Joe and Allison have real fights. Joe isn't perfect. Allison isn't perfect. Their marriage deals with faith and trust in each other, broken cars, losing jobs, taking kids to the doctor, etc. I love the family relationships. The kids act like, well, normal kids. Is anyone else tired of "super-brainy," mouthy brats being promoted on TV?

The DA, lead detective, and deputy mayor make up the other side of Allison's life. Another great ensemble! All three are down to earth and none fit into the usual niches of their roles. The DA doesn't act like a law book. The lead detective doesn't act like Starsky or Hutch. The deputy mayor is both logical and calming. They're intriguing characters and I would like to hear more of their stories, too.

I was SO glad that CBS picked up "Medium!" I am hoping that CBS will do a better job in promoting this little gem filled with a new mystery every week. With NBC and its crazy scheduling, I missed the first couple of episodes before I knew that it was back on the air. Never got to see reruns during the summer--I hope that changes.

I've purchased the first four seasons and am looking forward to this release!

Medium is definitely one of the best acted and written shows on television. Recently, NBC, canceled this series, which makes no sense whatsoever considering it still has great ratings, but not to fear, CBS in all it's infinite wisdom picked up the show from NBC, and will be airing it after Ghost Whisperer on Fridays! Now the show will definitely get the props and attention it deserves, because it truly is one of the best shows on television. If you haven't seen an episode of Medium, I suggest it highly, because it is definitely one of the best written and acted shows on television! This past season was absolutely excellent, and the last episode of this season was just absolutely incredible! This is Must See TV!

Really a 3.5 that started as maybe a 4.5 but is slowly losing its appeal. The characters have developed well into believable people but the plot are becoming less real and you have to wonder why Allison is still getting so emotional over many of her dreams. She has had them all her life, works for the DA so maybe its time she took these situations in stride rather than let them tie her in knots. The kids are basically good at being kids. Joe has become more supportive over time, although he sometimes has lapses. In general the show why the show has gone down in my estimation is that many of the plots aren't all that original although a good one slips in every once in a while. By season 5 everything that happens has become pretty predicable.

As long as you are comfortable with the idea that the medium "really" sees dead people, the show is a lot of fun. True she is always after the bad guys that do really bad things, but it's mixed with family stuff that most can relate to. It's kind of like Ozzie and Harriet or Leave it to Beaver but with ghosts and mystery mixed in to make it interesting. Loved watching the episodes by streaming them since I could stop and start at my convenience and there were no commercials!

I really like this show, but often I have to close my eyes because some of the scenes are too graphic for me....but I love the realism of the family, each of whom is an excellent actor, even the tiniest child. I'm so glad the series went on for so many years....I'm finally getting to catch up with some television time. (it wasn't by choice, but I am enjoying it.)

Medium is actually based on a real person with a real family using their actual names in the seven show series. Once I started watching the series, it was easy to continue as the family gradually grew seven years older and different situations kept coming up that kept the interest.

All in all, I enjoyed Season 5, but a few episodes not as much, because I was not as thrilled with the plot lines. I won't do any spoilers and say why I didn't like those, in case others haven't seen the season yet.

I Like this show. Always something different. If you like the unusual this is it. There really is an Allison if you look her up. Course the police where she lives says she has never really been of any help and they exaggerate her ability it makes for a great show with the family life and not just centered on her but parts with each of the family members having prominent rolls and having major parts in the show where they are the center of the show for parts of the show.

If you like different, you will like this I think.
