Why the low rating? This episode is more interesting than the usual "someone's dead, now I have to convince their family I can see ghosts so they can move on(and don't forget the tears).

In this episode, Melinda buys a collection of ornaments from a flea market that have a mute spirit attached to them. I won't reveal anything else, that'd spoil the fun if you haven't seen the ep yet.

I used to think this show needed more evil. OK, it could do with it in light splodges here and there, but Supernatural can take care of all evil spirit needs. What this show needs most is exactly what this episode (in part) provides. Mystery. The more anomalies, the more intrigue, the more Melinda can't quite grasp what she's up against, the more bums will be on seats come airing night. Oh, and the more Jay Mohr we'll get. I never laugh during Ghost Whisperer, this guy provides some much needed comic relief. Oh, and there's a CGI sequence here that really surprised me. For a show with a budget like this, that's some nice, creative work.

So, aside from evil and mystery, we need a through line, something connecting the episodes together and it looks like that's coming back. Call it this season's 'laughing man' or whatever. We're at a stage where this show is just getting better and better, because, let's face it, there's a few more solid spirit oriented shows out there, so this one needs to pull it's socks up. There are a few 'formulaic' bits that need to be shaken up. There are things one can't avoid like in this episode for example, Delia's oh-so-obvious role in the series, to replace Andrea, is played out in a way where one can almost lip-sync with the scene without having ever seen it before. So, not perfect, but surely entertaining. And I'm not ashamed to admit it!
