Two of the Dubois daughters, Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva) and Bridgette (Maria Lark), share some of their mother's abilities, and thus are featured a bit more this time around (not always to good effect; an episode in which Ariel confronts a dead guy in a rabbit suit who's tormenting a young boy is fairly silly). Joe, the odd man out as the females in his life grapple with the weighty weirdness of their "gift," is the focus of a few story lines, as are Allison's colleagues, D.A. Manuel Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) and Det. Lee Scanlon (David Cubitt). But this is still the Allison Dubois show. This season, as she tries to help solve murder cases involving stalkers ("Deja Vu All Over Again"), serial killers ("An Everlasting Love"), crooked cops ("The Future's So Bright"), identity thieves ("Will the Real Fred Rovick Please Stand Up?"), a maniac who drains the blood from entire families and then poses them like wax dummies ("There Will Be Blood," a two-parter), and more, Allison's clues come to her in some very peculiar ways. In one episode, she hears the conversations of people nearby via her car radio; in another, she dons a pair of sunglasses that allow her to see exactly how many days whoever she's looking at has left to live. And then there's "Bite Me," probably the season's best and most inventive show. In the course of this Halloween-themed tale, Allison dreams that she's a character in Night of the Living Dead; what's more, she wakes up to find herself afflicted with the very same injuries her character suffered in the dreams (these sequences, brilliantly re-created from George Romero's classic horror tale and shot in black and white, are also the subject of a featurette included in the bonus material). Episodes like "Bite Me" reflect Caron's quirky, often whimsical style, and even if his inspiration and eccentric little touches sometimes come off as merely frivolous, Medium still makes for highly entertaining viewing. --Sam Graham

She has three daughters, all of whom are gaining the same ability. I especially enjoyed the daughters this season. Two scenes spring to mind: Ariel, the eldest, dealing with a giant Beaver ghost who is making a small boy's mother miserable AND Bridget, the middle daughter, who works in the library (to pay off her fines) who writes an email for a dead woman and sees a trickster in princely array, thus identifying the source of his fraud. There are many more incidents but these two kids are terrific and have really hit their strides with the series.
Joe, the husband and father, is odd man out, as he cannot see any of these things, which are daily grist for the rest of his family. Ironically, the wacko techie genius he now works for makes his family members seem normal! There are some very funny scenes with Joe attempting to work with this guy, which alleviate the tension from the rest of the show. One scene with the department of defense and these two is uproarious.
Bringing up the rear are the DA and the detective. They actually have very little screen time which is to the good.Read more ›
Fortunately, CBS picked up Medium in the fall 0f 2009 and we got to see the 6th season. I truly believe the writers of Medium have a lot in store for Season 7, involving the girls, Joe, and Allison. I think our next adventure of Medium will most likely be the last unless something miraculous happens like a spin off show which someone in the comment section said. I think this season will focus more on the girls and the Ariel in school. It's amazing how time flies. Seems just like yesterday that this show began.
I hope Season 6 is released no later than October, because there were several I had to miss due to work, but overall, this season was by far the best. I can not wait until I own it along with the others. So I would say go out there and get these remarkable season. Add it to your collection. You won't want to miss it!!
Now here we are in the spring of 2010, who knew that this show would last this long. Well, it did. And I for one, I am very proud that it has lasted this long! I can't wait to get all 22 episodes on 6 discs.
Sofia Vassilieva, in particular, showed immense maturity, range & talent this season. Some of the best scenes of the season involved episodes where her character, Ariel, was the main focus. Two that stand out in my mind are one where she is temporarily overcome by someone else's persona (it sounds ridiculous, but it's played out with care & subtlety) & one in which Ariel loses time inexplicably, seeing herself progress into her twenties & thirties. That episode, which thrust Ariel into her possible future, was wonderfully written & was even one that tugged at the heartstrings. Maria Lark (Bridget) is also a talented young actress, though her versatility & appeal is not up to that of Vassilieva's. I will say that both are actresses that seem like normal children on the show, not obsessed with boys, clothes or computer games. The family element of the show is refreshingly wholesome.
That said, some of the subject matter & visual content, especially for a network show, is pretty graphic. If you can't take seeing violence or seeing someone in mortal fear, this is not the show for you. Each show is crafted to make one think, to keep one in suspense & sometimes it shows the darkest side of humanity possible in the process. I think that it's a show which would appeal to loyal viewers of any ghost-related program, "Dark Shadows" fans from back in the day, programs like that.Read more ›
Of course, Patricia Arquette and Jake Weber, in all of the episodes, have great chemistry and lots of great interaction.
This series will make you believe in Allison Dubois's talents as a medium and a psychic. Arquette is very convincing and a compassionate character. She also has her funny moments.

I really like this show. Frustrated that half way through the 7th season they made it so you have to pay to watch it even though I'm a prime member. Borrow them from the Library.Published 18 days ago by Herbmom
