For a show that has always kind of pushed the edge of believability, Ghost Whisperer just took another leap. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the show. I love the character’s of Melinda and Jim. They’re a wonderful caring couple. My only complaint is how Melinda is always running off in the dark and Jim is just letting her.
Two episodes ago, Jim (the big bad paramedic) ended up getting shot. Things are going well with Jim in recovery. Melilnda falls asleep and wakes up to Jim telling her this is how he wants to be remembered, whole and healthy. Over Jim’s shoulder, Jim is in his hospital bed and the heart monitor is flat lining.
Jim is dead. It’s a good November sweeps stunt. But then the previews for this last Friday’s episode were starting to be a little iffy. I didn’t watch this last week’s show. I was busy. But guess what I find out. Jim didn’t want to be separated from Melinda. This could have been pulled off for quite awhile. Jim "helping" Melinda cross ghosts over. Then during February or May sweeps, Melinda could finally convince him he needs to cross over. But no, instead Jim spends one episode following Melinda around and bam, he decides to enter the dying body of a car accident victim. Only catch is that he doesn’t know who Melinda is, but when Melinda looks at the victim, she sees Jim where others see the victim.
I think it’s about good-bye time for Ghost Whisperer. It was a very good show, but it jumped the shark big time.
