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.

User Reviews

Very well done.
25 September 2005 | by ALDP57See all my reviews

The Ghost Whisperer is a really good show that has the potential to be great. The storyline for the pilot was very compelling and touching. I have watched Medium, but I prefer THe Ghost Whisperer primarily because of the fact that GW deals more with helping earthbound souls find their way to the other side and not about solving crimes. Jennifer Love Hewitt is a joy to watch and the rest of the cast seems to be well suited to their roles. The only problem I had was some of the dialog seemed too campy and a little rough around the edges, but that is common with pilots. I'm really looking forward to seeing more from this one.
