Anyone watching "The Ghost Whisperer"?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I can't believe Jim died! I bawled for half of the show last night. But, DH says that's how he wants his wake, only he wants AC/DC played and everyone drinking Miller Lite.

Anyway, what do you think is going to happen now? I'm sorry, I just love this show.

I can't watch the "Ghost Whisperer" anymore. I was standing in front of the TV one night, holding a homemade pot pie, watching the "Bloody Mary" episode. At the exact instant Bloody Mary reached through the mirror for her face was when Hobo, wanting to check out the pot pie, jumped from the floor to my shoulder, claws and all. I knew, I just knew that the boogie man had hold of me in my living room, and I'm pretty sure I screamed like a little girl.

Haven't watched it sense.

I haven't seen last night's episode yet, but I'm not happy with the turn of events. Their relationship gave a nice dimension to the show that I enjoyed watching.

I watched the show last night. I don't want to spoil it for others who haven't seen this episode, so I'll just say you won't expect to see what eventually happens to Jim at the end of the program.

Watched a few episodes and always had a little cry as the ghost went into the light, but started back a couple of weeks ago. (Quit back in July after Mom died.)

Anyway, after last weeks episode (Nov.7) I decided I didn't want to watch last night's. My tissue supply is limited.

I hadn't watched GHOST WHISPERER in a long time, but decided to watch it last night. Am I the only person who never liked Jim very much?

After last week's episode, I went perusing the IMDb message boards (and not everyone is as nice and polite there as they are here) and found a LOT of folks really PO'ed about Jim presumably dying. I have to say I agree. Many said they've 'jumped the shark' (for anyone who doesn't know that term, it means they've hit their peak and have screwed up so badly the show is most likely doomed), and I tend to agree. We've gotten reassurances from 'higher ups' of the show that he will be around 'for good' but seriously... keeping him as a 'ghost husband' is a really lame idea... for once we had a strong positive example of a TV marriage (no one cheating or beating each other up, etc... also not an example that is too over the top sappy sweet either) and they go and pull this stupidity. I love the show, I do... but unless there's some major and seemingly believable twist, I think the show has done themselves in.

I'm almost afraid to check those IMDb boards now... what with seeing the funeral and all in this week's episode.

Between Ghost Whisperer possibly jumping the shark, and Stargate Atlantis getting axed by Sci-Fi at the end of this season, Friday nights are tanked for me... Seriously, why can't they just LEAVE the good shows alone...

End of morning rant...

I quite agree with the positive example of a marriage. It was so refreshing and I was looking forward to seeing them have a baby. I know the show at its heart is a ghost show but really. I was also disappointed when the first shop assistant died. I can't remember her name. Are the writers just not creative enough to write episodes that can keep us talking without resorting to killing off the intergral characters for the shock factor. There are just too few shows for me that don't rely on violence, sex or other gimmicks to keep my interest.

I only watch it sometimes. Someone else in my household records it so once in a while I watch it. I didn't see that episode but when I heard they killed off her husband I was very annoyed at the turn of events.
I did see the last 5 minutes or so of yesterday's episode and I did not like what they did at all.

I don't watch the show anymore. It kind of got old to me.

However here is a link where the actor talks about being killed off. There may be spoilers, so if you don't want to know, don't read it:

Not to mention the vision of pot pie bits flying all over the place.

I do watch the show. In fact I look forward to it. I really hate the fact that Jim is "dead." And, aside from all the ranting, where the heck was Melinda's mother? She wasn't at the funeral.
post #15 of 15
I watch it and I really don't know what to think. It was never a really good show to me just a decent one so I guess in a way I am not to bothered. I am hoping that Melinda finds out she is pregnant.
