Goofs

The show is set in Phoenix, AZ, which is in Maricopa County. In at least a couple of episodes, when there is a scene in the courtroom, the court is called to order in "Mariposa County." Also, whenever they show the county seal in court or a state government building, it also reads "Mariposa County." See more »

"Medium" allows for an escape - not an explanation
22 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to disagree with anyone who says this show is "corny," "unbelievable," or glamorizes a "supernatural talent." The essence of good fiction does promote the suspension of disbelief to the point in which the characters, events, and plot are believable. If you watch the show for realistic events, true plots and characters, then, yes, this show will be a disappointment. If, however, you wish to escape the constant bombardment of "reality TV," this show is an excellent diversion.

The characters, the plots, the dialog, and the premise itself may not be all that believable, but neither were "Baywatch," "Melrose Place," or "Dukes of Hazzard." And look how long they lasted! Those who have just one hour to try this show, try keeping an open mind to the talent of the actors and watch for the sake of watching, not scientific evidence.
