Some people do not realize that this show is based about a real life woman.
15 February 2005 | by mistylynnbSee all my reviews

What some people do not realize about medium is that it is also loosely based on a real life woman. She does this exact kind of work in her hometown for local law enforcement. Even if the premise is not original, the writing and acting of the show could not be better. Medium is a delight to watch. Ms. Arquette who portrays her character with such passion was and excellent choice for this role. I find myself waiting for each Monday to come around just to see what she will dream next. I truly hope this show hangs around for many seasons. It is an excellent show which I hope will continue to fascinate and entrance our minds.
