I am thrilled to be bringing you the new
Medium blog. I have loved Allison DuBois (the character) since she graced us with her presence two seasons ago.
Medium gets better with age. It's smart, it's clever, it's funny when you don't expect it to be, and everyone is pretty likable. Even when they're being grumpy, they're likable, because they seem like such real people, or at least like people we all would like to be.
The third season premiere, a two-hour extravaganza included Patricia Arquette's real-life husband, Thomas Jane, in a touching role as Clay Bicks, her high-school boyfriend.
When Clay Bicks showed up at the DuBois' house and told Alison that she was the one he always thought of, I just about lost it. And that was in the first few minutes of the show. And that he hung around wanting to be near her. We know in the end it was to help her find the killer, but it was sad and heartbreaking to watch. Seeing Joe get really jealous was a nice change from how even-keeled he usually is.
With this show Alison isn't the only one dreaming about killers. Now the dreams jump around the household. Bridgette gets the bug when she starts dreaming about the MonkeyHeads. What a clever way to introduce her to the world of psychic dreaming. And the animation was great. This kid, Maria Lark, is a fantastic actress. I have always liked her and her little comments. Maria makes the show that much more enjoyable because I figure she's a lot like Bridgette.
The ability to see and feel the dead is shared by almost everyone in this episode. From Alison dreaming in movies and Bridgette in Technicolor cartoons to Joe who feels a cold draft every time Clay walks by him. Joe can't see him, but he knows he's there. His "She's My Wife" speech was sweet. It was even nicer that Alison hears about it from Clay the old guard passing the torch to the new. (Although, I believe she and Joe have been married a pretty long time!)
It was heartbreaking to find out that the D.A. has diabetes and has for some time. I am crossing my fingers that this doesn't mean we're going to lose him. I love Manuel! Scanlon finally had a lot of screen time after what seemed like a hiatus. I must admit, I don't remember him being with the deputy mayor last season, but I'm frankly glad it's not going to work out. She really needs a hairstyle, and he needs someone a little more exciting. Detective, would you care for my number?
It was a pretty gruesome show, but if you know about my other blog for Dexter, you know gruesome no longer bothers me!
(I apologize now for not getting this up sooner, but technical difficulties being what they are, we were delayed in posting. I hope you are a forgiving bunch.)
