Goofs

In the Pilot, the ghost of Vietnam Veteran Sgt. Paul Adams is wearing plain Olive drab (green) jungle fatigues, correct for the 1960s, but by the time he supposedly died, it was 1972 and his unit (5th ID), as most U.S. Army units, had changed to the "Nam Leaf pattern" camouflage (ERDL) uniform for several years already.

The pilot-episode of "Ghost Whisperer" promises an interesting series supported by the sweet Jennifer Love Hewitt. The simple story is beautiful, but predictable and without any surprises or twists. It is difficult to understand why the soldier of a war of the 60's and 70's has expected so many years to contact Melinda. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Pilot"
