I'm only an occasional watcher of Medium, so I won't go so far as to call myself a fan, but I will say that I enjoy the show when I watch it, although I do wish Allison would once in a while remember that her precognitive dreams are totally unreliable, and often deliberately misleading. I'm particularly a big fan of Jake Weber as Allison's husband Joe, so I'm actually a little disturbed by the capsule summary of tonight's series finale.
I, for one, am really happy Medium is still on the air. Granted, I haven't been watching much since it made the move to CBS, but it's a solid psychic procedural mixed with a family drama, it has a great cast, and I hope it finds new viewers now that it's paired up with Ghost Whisperer and is getting a lot of airplay in reruns on Lifetime. Another good thing about the show is its '80s and '90s guest stars, and it'll add one more to the list tonight when Martha Plimpton appears. That's right, tonight's Medium stars a Goonie.
I don't watch it every week, but when I do, I'm always impressed with how good a show Medium is. Patricia Arquette isn't the most gripping actress in the world, but she plays a fun character as awesomely sarcastic as she is incredibly earnest. And her husband is played by Jake Weber, who was so awesome in Dawn of the Dead that I still love him to this day. And while most weeks she has a new case to solve, with only her confusing dreams to guide her, there's usually a parallel thread she has to deal with that affects her family in some way, and sometimes the two intermingle. Plus, the status quo of the family is constantly changing: One episode they're unemployed and broke, a few episodes later they have jobs, but they're being stalked by a psychopath, and the next week one of her daughters has demonstrated a new psychic ability. Basically, the problems never end for the Dubois family. Which is why I think I need to watch tonight's 2-hour event -- because it looks like big stuff might happen.
