November 19, 2006: I've Got the Music In Me Season 2, Episode 9

I've never been a fan of the whole "pop/rock guest star" sweeps stunt on dramatic or comedic TV shows - don't we see enough of Britney? Well, if the guest star was somebody like 30 Seconds to Mars' Jared Leto, maybe I would have a change of heart. But I swear, it's because he's also a good actor. (Cough) When I saw this week's Ghost Whisperer previews, I was excited that this episode would have a musical twist. (I'm in a band myself, so I like stories that revolve around music.) However, the cynicism kicked right in at those ominous words: "Guest-starring 'N Sync's J.C. Chasez!" Are you kidding me? But in all fairness, Mark Wahlberg was once a New Kid, and now he's a great actor and acclaimed producer ( Entourage). So I elected to open my mind and just let this week's episode roll... er... rock. Wow, "Joshua Chasez" is a decent actor. Who knew? Now, the Ghost Whisperer team was smart to keep him out of the spotlight and stick to a smaller role. If he wasn't a very good actor, we still wouldn't know it, and the show hasn't lost its credibility. Good call, GW team. I think I just might be open to more pop/rock guest stars on my shows. Maybe. It hasn't quite reached "two great tastes that taste great together" possibilities, but... I'm open. Casting Jared Leto could help. Okay, enough about dark, dreamy, blue-eyed, multitalented crossover stars, and on to the one who does the crossing over and (at long last) who may soon get found out by Delia! It's so great that Delia's son, Ned, found Melinda out, but I'm also glad that the writers aren't showing all of Mel's cards too soon. The start of that journey is enough for me, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all unfolds. Jim (McHottie), a perfect role model for Ned, was "man of the episode" by intervening on Mel's behalf, sharing his own story of loss and offering to be a friend to Ned. I would love to see that relationship develop too. This week's tear-jerker award goes to Delia. I really, really felt for her as she mourned the loss of Charlie on his birthday. I also loved seeing Jim in a great scene with her this time around. As far as the haunting, I found this week's to be one of the more interesting stories, and I enjoyed the "good ghost, bad ghost" mystery. Looks like the last musician-ghost standing may come back, too? Maybe my fantasy about a Jared Leto guest appearance isn't so far-fetched? show less

Premise: Newlywed Melinda Gordon tries to help the dead communicate with loved ones, 'but sometimes the messages she receives are intense and confusing.' Most of Melinda's efforts involve resolving conflicts that are preventing the spirits from passing over. The sentimental drama is 'inspired by the work of medium James Van Praagh.'
