Ghost Whisperer
OK, creepy laughing guy is back, along with a deep-voiced shadowy guy. Why do I feel that there's some sort of Satan thing going on? If there is, this fallen angel is nowhere as cute as Joan of Arcadia's devilishly handsome

Wentworth Miller. Then again, we all know what happened with that show. But back to the episode at hand, Melinda thinks Andrea is brave because she faces the scariest thing in the world getting up onstage on open-mic night. Ironic coming from a woman who constantly has ghosts haunting her store and home. But Melinda's ever-supportive hubby agrees that public speaking is terrifying. "I was Linus in our third-grade production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and I almost threw up on Snoopy." Nothing phases this guy  he even offers to buy tickets to the Comedy Cave to see a stand-up act in order to help his wife with a creepy, sopping-wet spirit with really eerie eyes. Don't you think that since Katey Sagal owned the club and is selling off all the memorabilia via Melinda's suddenly profitable antiques shop, she could spot her the tickets? But my real question is, if the comedy club is going under, what is going to happen to all of the other ghosts who live there that refuse to go into the light?   Angel Cohn

Bill Nye the Science Guy was on hand to help blow up some stuff in his lab. That's cool! I just wish we had gotten a chance to see more of him. But there was plenty of fun stuff in the episode, like an unflappable Alan wandering into his bathroom to find Charlie and Larry fiddling with his bathroom shower. Now another dad might question his adult son being in the shower with another guy, but not Papa Eppes. He ends up using his construction knowledge to help the math guys solve their fire-starter case. Though the case borrowed liberally from the plot of Backdraft, it was still pretty fun to watch unfold. I really liked the geeky guy who had a big part in some of the explosions. It was interesting to watch Charlie see what could have been if he hadn't had the family he had. A little bit It's a Wonderful Life-ish. Sweet moments like this make me feel so bad for Charlie, who really lost out on his childhood because of his genius ways. But at least now he's got his dad to rely on, and all things considered, he's a pretty well-adjusted human being. Angel Cohn
