GHOST WHISPERER REVIEW

Ghost Whisperer Review
TV REVIEW
by Salome Bell
SEASON PREMIERE FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 28th

ALSO ON SITE
I was not a "Party of Five" person, but it's plain that Jennifer Love Hewitt is a talented actress, and has enough charisma and depth to be very, very watchable.

I have not been a loyal "Ghost Whisperer" watcher either, but the few episodes I've seen have impressed me a lot.

First off, it's great to see television has a place for both Jay Mohr and the wonderful Camryn Manheim.

Also, and this is a real plus, it's genuinely creepy, something few supernatural shows manage to be.

I could do without the screaming, though. Jennifer's Melinda is brave, but tends to scream first and show her guts later. It's not my favorite way for someone to react - I tend to get a little irritated when Melinda's initial reaction is always to squeal.

But the relationships she has with both Jay Mohr's distracted professor and Manheim's good-hearted best friend are real enough, and I have to admit, I'd rather see her with Mohr than the rather lackluster David Conrad.

I managed to catch the season finale twice (doesn't it always seem if you only tune in a few times to a show you see the same episode over and over?)

It was a double treat with guest shots by Tim Guinee and Julian Sands, and was a good mystery to boot.

And the premiere, while not depending wholly on the events of the previous episode, touched a few nerves and showed that this show still has lots to say about Melinda, her tortured relationship with her mother.

The only disappointment was not getting more of one of my fave actors of all time, Martin Donovan, who appears as Melinda's missing, possibly dead father.

Hopefully, this means that he will appear again during the season.

But really, in the end, Ghost Whisperer is spooky fun. It must suck me in, because at the end I'm always surprised there was a resolution, kind of like when you're reading a Stephen King novel and the odds seem stacked so much against the hero it appears impossible for anything good to happen.

I'll definitely try it again.
