Dear <I>Ghost Whisperer</I>, It’s Over

Hello there, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Camryn Manheim, and everyone else involved in Ghost Whisperer (except for Jamie Kennedy),

I've been a loyal watcher of this show since it started (and I'm not even nearly as embarrassed about that fact as I should be). I've stood by as you killed off Aisha Tyler. I suffered when Jay Mohr left (admittedly not your fault since he got that new sitcom gig). I tried to let Jamie Kennedy grow on me, even though I really can't stand him or his whiny character. I was skeptical when you killed off Melinda and then brought her back to life. I've watched the entirety of JLH's alternately bizarre and revealing parade of fashion. I went with you on some really weird story arcs. In fact, I don't think I've ever missed an episode.

The Ghost Whisperer Experiment

The <i>Ghost Whisperer</I> Experiment Kill me now... wait, don't do it because then Jennifer Love Hewitt would want to talk to me and then I might have to be in the proximity of Jamie Kennedy and I so can't handle that in life or the afterlife. I am not ashamed (OK, not that ashamed) of the fact that I watch Ghost Whisperer regularly. In fact, I've been trying to figure out what the mysterious ending was really all about. Now Jay Mohr, who I find amusing and kind of charming, is heading off for the inoffensive and generic new series Project Gary (at least based on the pilot I saw) and taking his place is Jamie Kennedy. Ugh. Mohr had been sort of comic relief on the show as a professor and sounding board who listened to Melinda's wacky ramblings and advised her on otherworldly creatures. Once Mohr's character heads off on "sabbatical" (aka his new sitcom) Kennedy will fill his shoes as a grad student who presumably has an affinity for the supernatural. Unless he's undead, this is not cool. I find Kennedy's shtick uninteresting and usually avoid him, but to see him regularly on a show that is a guilty pleasure of mine sort of makes watching just guilty and less of a pleasure. I at least hope that they can find a way to tone him down... if at all humanly possible. Or kill him off and have Melinda cross him over to the other side. That I would enjoy watching.

The Least Scary Supernatural TV Shows of All Time

The Least Scary Supernatural TV Shows of All Time

There have always been two kinds of supernatural shows on TV: those that were trying to be funny, like I Dream of Jeannie and Big Wolf on Campus, and those that were trying to be scary, like The Twilight Zone and Friday the 13th: The Series. Some straddled the line, managing both with equal skill, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Supernatural manages to be pretty scary most of the time, but many shows have aimed for scary and fallen horribly short. Here are a few of the most egregious examples.
