Work that pole!
7 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is exactly one reason to watch this episode, and that's to catch Hewitt doing a lively and sexy pole dance in a strip club. It's part of a dream she has after encountering a ghost who was a part-time exotic dancer. Otherwise, the episode is a total waste. A doctor involved with a missing assistant is apparently being haunted by her ghost. But nothing is as it seems in this episode. The writers fall back on the concept of a shadow army of demonic spirits wreaking havoc, something we had plenty of earlier in this series. Also, once again, Hewitt's real-life boyfriend, a talentless individual named Jamoie Kennedy, occupies way too much screen time. It's too late to bring back Jay Mohr, I suppose. Also, Melinda's new husband, whom she sees as her old husband, has grown these annoying long, girly locks. What the heck has happened to this series?
