February 9, 2007: We've Got Spirits, Yes We Do! Season 2, Episode 15

Applause to Ghost Whisperer for a wicked-cool Grammy Awards tie-in with Mary J. Blige as a guest star. She did a great job acting, and didn't seem at all to be "big music star playing actor," which often happens when pop stars get cast in TV shows and movies. It was actually her performance this evening that made me cry when her character realized her little brother was in the light. I also thought it was clever that we wound up hearing one of her songs through the cheerleading competition, rather than through an obligatory forced concert at the end of the show. Very clever and smooth Grammy Awards cross-promotion for CBS. Melinda was an adorable little freak in high school, wasn't she? She looked like a cute manga character, which I wouldn't exactly consider "nerdy," even by today's standards. But I s'pose to cheerleaders and the popular types, she would seem a bit different and be treated like a freak. Actually, her character in high school reminded me of the role that J. Love played on Party of Five. Do you all remember her from that show? She was a bit gawky and awkward then, but she still managed to get Bailey's attention in the end. I was about to get a little bit peeved at the Ghost Whisperer writers and producers for creating negative Wiccan, pagan and goth stereotypes in this episode. I was thinking to myself that it was about as far off the mark as the movie The Craft, and I started to get a little irritated with it but tried to keep an open mind. But then as Jim read the Wiccan "golden rule" to Mel - "If it harms none, do as you will" - the show quickly redeemed itself by clarifying that this was the false and misguided "teen angst" version of Wicca. It also redeemed itself in the end when Ghost Cheerleader was able to tell Maddy that she actually liked her for being different and admired her for it. Come to think of it, in the end, the show also redeemed itself by showing that even the cheerleaders weren't quite as shallow as we'd thought. I found myself missing Professor Payne this week! I hope that he gets to be in on some good February sweeps action over the next few episodes. By the way, now you all have me thinking (again) that his wife still may be a ghost. 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.'
