Goofs

In the episode The Prophet (2.21) Melinda states that Andrea died in a plane crash that occurred on May 11. May 11 is a big day for disasters, as it's mentioned numerous times. Later, in the episode Book of Changes (4.23), Andrea's name is followed with 8204, which reversed is supposed to be her date of death, which would be April 28, not May 11 as previously stated.

Well worth watching!
30 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I have always enjoyed this type of story and have read and watched many of them. Ghost Whisperer has to be one of the best I've seen yet. Other than the news, I watch only two or three shows on TV. One of those is Medium which I thought was very good until Ghost Whisperer came on. Jennifer Hewitt is a pretty women but for me, her acting overshadows her beauty. In fact, all the acting is above the norm for TV. I hope that the writer will focus on David Conrad and Aisha Tyler to give them a chance to show their skills as well. Both play excellent supporting rolls and I suspect could enhance the show with a little more presence. With Medium, I'm disappointed with the rude kids, complaining husband and crybaby wife. The idea of the show is good but I don't expect it to last long because of the characters. Ghost Whisperer, on the other hand has everything going for it. May it live long and prosper!
