Medium is a CBS drama starring Oscar winner Patricia Arquette. Although it ran for 7 seasons it didn’t get as much praise as other popular CBS series. It really is hard to figure out why as this show developed a devoted cult following very quickly. Allison Dubois is a wife and mother of three who also has a very unique ability…the ability to speak to the dead. Her communication with people on the other side causes a lot of tension in her marriage and with her children. However, Allison’s need to help the dead is so strong that she finds herself unable to ever get away from it. Allison even works for the district attorney office in order to help them solve crimes.
After the first episode there is no question of why this show ran for 7 years. Every episode is filled with drama, twists and some humor sprinkled throughout. The series features a very talented cast including Jake Weber as Allison’s loving husband Joe. While Joe supports everything that Allison does, there are moments where their marriage are on the rocks. However, the love story between the Dubois is one of the best things about the show.
From its first episode to its last, Medium is an emotional roller coaster that has everything you could want in a supernatural drama.
