Aftertaste Season 4, Episode 6

OK, that is a totally gross title for this week's totally gross Medium. But it is exactly what Allison had when she awoke after the first dream about the Senator and his cannibalistic tendencies. Did you catch her? She raised her hand to her mouth. You could almost taste it with her. And it was totally gross. Finally the return of Devalos! Let's hope that soldier-eating Senator can get Manny back in the DA driving seat. It's been long overdue. Speaking of which, did Manny look a little heavier than when he left last year? Perhaps all that time off from the job he got a little lazy. I kept thinking the Senator might find him "dinner-worthy". Not only was Devalos back, but he was directed by none other than his alter ego, Miguel Sandoval. That's right Sandoval directed this week's show, so to the reader who was panicked, worry not. He's baccck! Gregory Itzin made a fantastic return to primetime since his days on 24, as the Senator with a secret. Unfortunately, for him, Allison could see right through his politicking veneer. As a young soldier, and in what could only be called a real tribute to Rescue Dawn, the Jed Garrity, found himself locked in a POW camp with a group of starving prisoners. So when a sick prisoner was inches from death, with pretty much no hope of recovery, Garrity talked his pals into eating him so the rest of them could live. Now I don't doubt that this sort of thing happened during any wars, and I can understand how they came to the decision, they were starving and Rhodes was sick, but to be so darned glum about it 30 years later. Itzin seems to always play a smarmy sort. Speaking of smarmy, (isn't that just one of the greatest words, ever?) I thought the Senator's final speech to Allison was a little too practiced, his whole thing about honoring his friend, blah, blah, blah. You could tell he didn't feel the slightest amount of remorse and that he has assuaged his guilt by sending money to Rhodes' family. And he let another friend take the blame for all of them. What a creep. Meanwhile, the Dubois' were being bombarded by credit card companies trying to get blood from a stone. One had Bridgette on the phone for over ten minutes talking about nothing, but enough for Bridge to have a dream that the guy was going to be robbed. Poor Joe, I knew he was up the creek without so much as a paddle when he told Bridgette he would relay her message to Mr. Reshdie. The only really unbelievable part of that whole scenario was that Mr. Reshdie changed the status of their file from "annoy them everyday", to "pending payment". Of course, I would never admit to having had credit card problems, but you could wine and dine one of those folks on a yacht in the Mediterranean, and you'd still get a phone call the next day asking for payment. Scanlon, Ahhh. My question is, why does he always doubt our heroic psychic until the very last minute? He should know better by now. But when Allison said, "Oh, that's comedy! Cop-comedy!" I burst out laughing. He deserved it. But of course, he came to the rescue at the appropriate moment. It was comforting that there were no missing children in this one. I hope they've put those story lines on the shelf for a time. We Medium-ites can only take so much! Although, I'm not sure how much better cannibalism is, even when it's for somewhat understandable reasons. More new Medium next week, in the meantime, chew on these vids in our Online Video Guide. show less
