Spoiler Alert: This article discusses the Ghost Whisperer episode from last night (November 7th). If you don’t want to know what happens, stop reading now.
To the writers of Ghost Whisperer: You guys suck – big time!
One, you killed off Jim. Why would you do that? The whole premise of the show is someone who talks to ghosts with a lovely understanding husband. You’ve taken away the best part of the whole show. Jim can’t hang around as a ghost.
And,two, that sixth sense, “look at me” nonsense when he died was just stupid. You couldn’t write it any better than that? Aren’t you supposed to be professionals? He’s going to be all right, but the nurse mentions the one thing that could go wrong and it does. Dumb, Dumb, and Dumb. He deserved better than that.
And, three, what a shitty thing to do to the characters. Not only has Melinda lost her husband, but if I remember Jim’s family history, his mother is now burying a second son. Haven’t these people lost enough? Which brings me to point four.
Four: No baby? Melinda now goes through life without a piece of her husband — the love of her life? No baby. Yeah, that’s the way it happens in real life, spouses lose their partners all the time and are left with nothing but memories, but I don’t watch TV to see real life, I watch TV to see things that’ll never happen to me. So, not having Melinda pregnant is just stupid and dumb. Plus, you’ve lost the coolness of her passing her gift to her child. And, don’t try putting Melinda with some other guy, because I can’t see that happening.
Now, Cheryl tells me we have to watch the next episode, so I will, but pretty much — you’ve lost a fan.
