Trivia

The name of Melinda's store might be a reference to Jennifer Love Hewitt also being a singer: Melinda's shop is called "Same As It Never Was". In 1999, Jennifer Love Hewitt released a song called "How Do I Deal?", in which she sings the line "same as it ever was", a line which is also sung in the Talking Heads song, "Once In A Lifetime".

Goofs

In the episode The Prophet (2.21) Melinda states that Andrea died in a plane crash that occurred on May 11. May 11 is a big day for disasters, as it's mentioned numerous times. Later, in the episode Book of Changes (4.23), Andrea's name is followed with 8204, which reversed is supposed to be her date of death, which would be April 28, not May 11 as previously stated.

I loved it
27 September 2005 | by newage-masterSee all my reviews

I loved it. I thought it was a great show. It was fun, exciting, and even touching. The way Melinda (Jennifer Love Hewitt) would help those in need of answers from beyond the grave was one of the kindest things someone could do especially with her skill. The acting was believable and well maintained. And who can forget the cool outfits of the characters? I don't know why some people hated the opening credits so much. I'll admit the the theme song isn't the best but I thought that the presentation and the pictures were pretty cool too. I really hope this one doesn't get canceled I'd like to see what happens next in Melinda Gordon's life. I can't wait to see the next episode. I'll be tuning in.
