The Ghost Whisperer Review: "Living Nightmare"

at . Comments

It has been two week's since our last installment of The Ghost Whisperer. And we have to say we weren't that impressed with "Living Nightmare". To come back from a mini hiatus, we were expecting more and it was just mean of the writers to hint around about the Shadows.

Eli and Melind

The visual effects, we have to admit, were pretty cool. Who wants to get weird and freaky yellow eye contacts now? Better yet, I think I know what I will be this year for Halloween! Demonic Mrs. Northman? Check and Check.

In any case, I am not sure if it was just us, but were any of you also confused throughout the episode? First we thought that Robert really was being haunted by a demon. Then we couldn't tie in why his whole family was dead. It almost felt like they had to wrap the sixty minute episode up at the end and left us feeling slightly used.

We feel as though maybe the writers did this because they know we are all waiting in anticipation for more information about the Shadows. So all in all this episode was a big tease. And like in reality, no one likes a tease.

Did you guy catch the on screen chemistry between Melinda and Eli? They really need to work on not showing that to us, because frankly, Jamie Kennedy is gross and her on screen hubby is so much hotter!

We gave this episode only 2 stars - what did you guys think? Until next week, here are a couple of The Ghost Whisperer quotes:

Roberts demon: You can end it Robert, just one step. Take it. Take it. | permalink

Ned: Both of you have shown me that there is more to this world then what you see. | permalink

Melinda: Doctors, Truck drivers, and pilots, ya know, should get the most sleep not the least. | permalink

OMG, I do not want the show to end. I love it. Man the last episode it was kinda of scary because sometimes I did not know if it was the person talking or if it was the shadows. Creepy!! Hope this is not good bye I would be very sad. :( . But great job everyone this was a great serious, I loved it.

I agree. There was no need to kill Jim. They should def. do something with Melinda's son. I know he will play a vital part in finding out more about the shadows.

I really agree... I was hopeing that it wasn't just some disease... they need to start getting to the point of the season instead of dragging it out so much. I mean with Ramano in season 1, they basically had a cliff hanger of him watching Melinda at the end of every episode which I feel made me more interested. In season 2 they always left you off with a bloody or evil looking ghost who each had a point of importance at the end. Season 3 wasn't that great but it was a heck of a lot better than season 4. I think that ever since the whole Jim/Sam thing the show has went downhill... I got a little excited at the end of the Sally Stich episode when the girl with her lips sewn together was plotting something with the little blonde girl, but the stich girl hasn't been shown since. And where are the shinys and shadows? Overall though I think the first season was by far the best! They need to do something big like that again but not stretch their limits too far like they did when they killed Jim.
