Allison knows there's more than mere suicide to the story of a girl who jumps off a cliff. The girl's boyfriend is the son of a powerful lawyer, who is as bellicose with the district attorney as the son is cooperative. When the son's car proves to have been on the scene during the girl's death, Allison proves her mettle as an assistant to the DA by finding clues to this difficult mystery. Meanwhile, she predicts that her husband Joe's longtime co-worker is going to have a fatal heart attack. Should she tell her husband or not? If so, should Joe tell his co-worker? Written by J. Spurlin

Weak episode
13 November 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

This episode of Medium let me down. I generally regard this show in high esteem, but if anybody was to judge its quality from this episode alone, it would probably be dismissed as pap. I would have liked to explain its problems without running into spoiler territory, but I can't...


... because the problem lies with the denouement. Despite its documentary-like, ergo realistic-wannabe approach, its not unusual for this show to come up with convoluted resolutions sometimes. You accept them because they're usually clever. This one, however, goes way, way too far. When the truth is revealed, it is just totally implausible and unbelievable. The killer's motive is so tenuous and his plan so ridiculously complex, that you can't help but feel cheated by the writers. A pity.

This episode is fortunately an exception, though. They are usually a lot more satisfying!
