Trivia

According to Patricia Arquette, one of the producers of the show asked her to lose some weight. Arquette refused, arguing her character had three children and (like Arquette herself) had no problem with her mom-look. See more »

Goofs

The show is set in Phoenix, AZ, which is in Maricopa County. In at least a couple of episodes, when there is a scene in the courtroom, the court is called to order in "Mariposa County." Also, whenever they show the county seal in court or a state government building, it also reads "Mariposa County." See more »

User Reviews

it's not as far fetched as the premise may seem
23 March 2005 | by paulsandbergSee all my reviews

I've known women who have had premonitions - one even gets weird twinklings where she blurts out things while watching the news - and then whatever info she states comes out to be true.

So this show really works for me. It could have easily gone for some kind of sensationalism and quickly sunk to the bottom, but the writers have decided to reach for something more meaningful by creating an everyday household trying to deal with an unique situation. In doing so they have made the fantastic seem much more plausible and have given the show a sturdy foundation.

If you are looking for refreshingly crisp dialogue and some excellent acting within a show that makes you think, then please give Medium a try. It's so much better than all those so called "reality" shows, or the posturing in such shows as CSI where the writers cover up their lack of skill by having the stars look meaningfully into the camera.

It's funny how a show that many think has an outlandish premise can actually come off as being so much more realistic.
