Product Description

Allison Dubois (Arquette) is a strong-willed, devoted young wife and mother of three girls, who has gradually come to grips with her extraordinary ability to talk to dead people, see the future in her dreams and read people's thoughts. This season, Allison and her family's world is turned upside down after her abilities are publicly exposed, resulting in sweeping changes both professionally and personally.

The curtain falls on a reliably entertaining prime-time network drama as Medium bows out with this four-disc set from its seventh and last season. Creator Glenn Gordon Caron, star Patricia Arquette, and the rest of the cast and crew were already well into production when they learned that CBS-TV, who had moved the show to a new time slot, had not only declined to renew it for another year but had also decided to shorten the current season to 13 episodes (previous totals had ranged from 16 to 22). That doesn't affect the first dozen, which hew to the same basic theme developed over the previous six years, with clairvoyant Allison Dubois (Arquette) and the unsettling visions that come to her in her dreams helping the Phoenix police and district attorneys solve various murders--a process that doesn't always go smoothly, as the visions are often incomplete or misconstrued. This time around, stories include the killing of a homeless man that's captured on video; Allison's attempt to play matchmaker after she sees hearts, stars, and such on people's foreheads, symbols that she mistakenly interprets as an indication of their compatibility; her knowledge that a terrorist attack reminiscent of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing will happen at exactly 9:18 a.m.--except she doesn't know what day; and a pair of episodes that focus on Det. Lee Scanlon (David Cubitt) and his unsavory, criminally inclined older brother. On the personal front, all three of Allison and husband Joe's (Jake Weber) daughters have inherited her powers. Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva), the eldest, heads off to college and has a reduced role, but middle daughter Bridgette (Maria Lark) and Marie (Miranda Carabello), the youngest, have considerably more to do; Lark is especially delightful in the first and arguably best episode, in which she and Arquette switch bodies, giving the actors an opportunity to do spot-on, very amusing impressions of one another.

And then we have the 13th and last episode. As Caron explains in one of the several bonus featurettes, the unexpected cancellation of the series led to the creation of a finale that was intended to wrap things up once and for all--which it does, but in a strange and largely unsatisfying fashion. The episode begins with Joe's apparent death in a plane crash; without revealing the ending, suffice to say that the mere possibility that he survived but now, seven years later, has amnesia and is working for a Mexican drug lord is a silly contrivance that does not do this fine series justice. --Sam Graham

Few "law and order"-type shows leave one with a profound sense of knowing the characters' family lives like the back of their hand anymore. (This isn't the days of "Cagney & Lacey"-type programs, after all.) Few make the heartstrings pull when it's time to go off the air for good, but this one did. I have watched the show since the beginning of it's run, not always faithfully (especially when their time & day kept changing) but I have seen the last two seasons without missing an episode. It was an exceptionally well-crafted show, especially when one considers the premise- focusing on a psychic who works for the D.A.'s office, has a husband, three kids & lives in Phoenix, AZ. Not exactly thrilling, based on that bare description. But the combination of polished, powerful, talented & yet understated acting combined with more surprises in the plots than curves in a West Virginia back road kept this going for seven seasons.

I am single & child-free, but the family element of "Medium" is what made it most memorable for me. The seventh season left Joe & Allison at odds more often than before as career, age & family changes caused them to look at life anew. We saw Ariel head off to college (and her real-life portrayer head off the show, too). Joe's mother also left the canvas. Both actresses departed in ways that played out beautifully, but nonetheless sadly, for the viewer. Allison, Manuel Devalos & Joe Scanlon faced great challenges both in their work environment & in their personal relationships, and the tests thrown at them created much of the show's tension. Det. Scanlon became even more of a well-rounded character to me this year, as his weaknesses somehow also became his strengths.

I'm not sure what happened here, I can't quite believe it and it saddens me to break it to those viewers who have loyally followed and derived enjoyment from this series as I have during its run, but the final seventh outing of this superb show ends on a deeply disappointing and deflating note.

To preface, I learned that season seven would be the final season after I finished viewing season six and was surprised to say the least, especially so since in my opinion there had been no decline in either the consistency or inventiveness displayed by the writers (notably Glenn Gordon Caron) throughout the previous six seasons. The idea that the network executives/producers of the show had decided to end the series on a high-note seemed premature, but perhaps laudable (considering how many television series out-stay their welcome to some degree). This is in spite of the fact that I personally hadn't observed any signs that this brilliant show was growing stale. But whether that decision was correct remains debatable, all I do know is that the final seventh season does little justice to the quality of the series as a whole.

Firstly, there will be disappointment for many with the thirteen-episode format (the fewest number since season four's sixteen). But as an avid viewer of `Medium' from the very beginning I clung to the hope that the potential for this (admittedly truncated) season given the wealth of material developed in the lives of the Dubois family in previous seasons would be fulfilled. There was so much possibility to pick up old story-threads and re-visit memorable characters from previous seasons, but the only storyline that's continued here in the final season is that of Joe's mother.

WOW!! That's what I have to say about this amazing series! I had no clue it would run 7 seasons due to being slapped around by NBC for its first 5 years. It premiered back in January 2005 as a mid-season replacement and its first 16 episodes were simply astonishing! Patricia Arquette played Allison DuBois excellent. It was almost if the dead were omnipotent! Every where she looked she saw a dead person good or bad, lost or confused and tried to at first block them out by drinking! After NBC canceled the show in May 2009 (although it was outperforming their other shows) CBS picked it up for its remaining two seasons.

Back to season 7 (the final season), was just simply amazing!! The writers, actors, directors and producers all worked hard as hell to produce one of the finest prime time shows of the 00's and 10's. Season 7 began right where Season 6 ended as Allison continued to recover from her brain tumor. Her eldest daughter Ariel went off to college this season and we got to see more acting from the middle daughter Bridgett. The first episode "Bring your daughter to work day" was a take on the film "Freaky Friday", that being said, Bridgett and Mom switched places and it was nice to have a comical relief after all the sad ordeal that ended with season 6.

The series continued to get better with each episode. We got to see more details about Detective Lee Scanlon's life and how he and his deceased brother were treated as children, and his precious daughter Lee by Lynn whom he married. Another great episode was "The Match Game", in this episode we see Allison seeing hearts on people's foreheads and thinking they are matched and fate is working, but does it work for the greater good?!?
