5.0 out of 5 stars Between Realistic and Dreamlike, 11 Nov 2008
This review is from: Medium - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Allison Dubois is normal to look at, mother of three daughters and wife to an aerospace engineer, intern at the district attorney's office with intentions of going to Law School. But Allison is gifted; since she was little she's been able to speak to spirits, sometimes see into peoples heads and tell what's going to happen in the future.

She has eerie, sometimes absolutely frightning dreams that are prophetic and will lead her into conclusions of cases she will tend to at work as long as she can somehow decipher their true meanings in time. These dreams lead her into being involved in the investigation of some of Phoenix's most grisly murder cases.

Not only must she somehow manage to solve each case and understand each dream or vision, she must also contend with real life struggles such as her sometimes neglected husband Joe, or her daughters, Ariel, Bridgette and Marie.

If the struggle of trying to keep a part-time job with the oddest hours colliding with trying to hold together a family wasn't bad enough, but she also has to deal with the undeniable reality her two eldest daughters also apparently have inherited her unusual gift.

Unlike Ghost Whisperer, Medium is gritty and slightly more realistic, not shying away from blood and gore, nor shying away from the realities of paedophilia, rape, or sadistic cold-blooded murder. It may leave you momentarily wondering if you've tuned into an episode of CSI rather than a show about a woman who can speak with the dead.

Medium is based very loosely on events of the life of real-life medium Allison Dubois. It is not completely biographical, but touches upon things that have happened to her during her time being a psychic consultant and jury consultant.
