Alison Dubois (Patricia Arquette) is a medium (someone that sees dead people) and also a psychic that sometimes can see things that might happen in the future. As if that were not enough, she is a law student, and most importantly, a suburban mother that must take care of her family. But how can she help others with her abilities without looking strange to others, people that would very likely consider her a freak or a liar?

The solution to Alison's problem comes rather easily, if not too conventionally. She convinces the Phoenix District Attorney Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) that her unusual skills can be very helpful to find and trap criminals, and is afterwards employed by him, without unveiling the real reason of her presence at the District Attorney's office.

The first season of "Medium" shows us some of the cases Alison helps to investigate, as well as her family life with her husband Joe (Jake Weber), and her two daughters, Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva) and Bridget (Maria Lark). It is interesting to point out that this series was inspired by a real life story, that of a research medium also called Allison Dubois.

On the whole, I think that you will enjoy "Medium", provided that you like a well-written and produced series that has all the ingredients of a great whodunit, but also some supernatural aspects that make it different (even if you don't believe in mediums!). For my part, I really enjoy it, and I'm very happy that this show already has a second season. Of course, recommended...

I agree, this is a great series. I suppose its the best thing like it since the x-files and yes, the bbc really screwed up putting this on so late. I caught the 3rd episode of season 1 and was hooked! Although Patricia Arquette needs to do 'crying' acting classes :)

Be warned ..... when you start watching the complete first season you will be hooked. This is not your typical crime series with a bit of the supernatural - but a story of a family, a family that WILL leave you with a sense of warmth and happiness.

This is a great show if you like this genre, like a grown-up Ghost Whisperer crossed with CSI. Great stories, very watchable. I didn't see it on TV but am glad I bought the boxset and ready to invest in season 2.

Fantastic series, not too far fetched, based on the apparent true life Medium Allison Dubois, Patricia Arquette plays her perfectly.
Well acted, spooky in places with a Great storyline.
