Last night was all about dreeeeams!
Ghost Whisperer: Mones
This week on Ghost Whisperer: CLOWNS! White-faced, red-wigged, ghost ass CLOWNS! Good thing I’ve learned to sleep with the lights on.
So this week’s ghost wasn’t actually a clown. He was a PI who died by choking on a balloon while working undercover as a clown at a birthday party. But that didn’t stop him from scary the poop out of Melinda and me. His story, like most ghost stories, was pure filler. The real story here were the shadowy spirits that surrounded Melinda in her poorly lit house. Maybe she wouldn’t attract so many ghosts if she didn’t give them so many shadows to hide in? Ever think of that? The faceless spirits trapped her in a glass box and she pleaded with them to stop staring at her. Intensifying the feeling that someone was watching them that her and Aidan had all episode. The episode closed with a visit from Bedford’s ghost who tells her nothing is what it seems. “Trust nothing, and no one.” Unfortunately, she doesn’t ask him to elaborate.
Last night was the second of a two parter Medium. The story began with Al dreaming about a dead family whose blood had been drained. Then they were posed next to each other to watch TV. You know what I call that? Serial killer thoughtfulness. He could have just left their asses on the kitchen floor or something, but no. He let them watch their stories. AW!
Well that didn’t get Allison off his scent. She had a dream about this goth girl who killed herself, and then her kids had dreams about the same girl killing herself. The thing was, Goth would do it right when the dream was at its best part. She’d interrupt and then go “so this is how you use your gift?” That? Is Goth girl rudeness. The serial killer was more polite than a Goth girl. Goth kids, I hope you watched these episodes and really thought about your manners.
When we meet Goth, we find out that she’s a dreamer too. But unlike Al, she sees from one guy’s point of view. First she saw through his eyes as he hunted for a deer and then drained its blood to pose it all over town and take pictures of it. Then he started killing families. This disturbed Goth greatly, but she was a homeless teen and she was hungry, so she’d just head over to the victims’ homes and pig out until the police came. Like I said, rude and thoughtless. In her defense, her parents both died in a horrible car accident when she was a kid, leaving her penniless and homeless. But homeless people who follow the golden rule generally make more change than ones who yell at you. At least in my neighborhood.
Al met up with the girl, befriended her, and took her into her home because the girl dreamt that the serial killer was chasing her. Al was all “oh that’s cool. We’ve already had a serial killer in our home trying to off us all and we survived. If this one will let us catch up on Jeopardy I’m willing to give him a fair shot. Come on in, sister!” Joe, was of course, pissed, and Goth eventually stole money from them and ran away before having her last dream and chugging a bottle of bleach to make the visions stop. Joe was actually right about something for once. We didn’t get a “nanny booboo scene”, which I found unfair. In the end, Al’s dreams saved the day and they found the killer driving an ice cream truck full of blood, manhunted his ass, and killed him dead. The Goth girl was free of her dreams, and you could tell she was at peace now cuz her hair was conditioned.
It was explained that the killer was into blood cuz it made him feel powerful. He would give his own blood over and over cuz he knew that there were people walking around not even knowing that he was inside them. That’s how Goth had his vision in her sleep. Ok, I’ll buy it cuz it’s Friday night and I have a pizza here, but it wasn’t explained why he stole blood from people, or why he would target families, or why he was obsessed with taking pictures. Come on, there were two hours to explain it! So it didn’t make all that much sense, but the only reason I really even noticed is cuz I’m writing it all down. I don’t think I would have minded otherwise, because this is Medium and all.
The B story was about Joe’s job inventing something or other fuel that’s miraculous cuz…I don’t know. I never understand Joe’s storylines. They scream SCIENCE so I usually read a magazine during his parts. From what I could tell, though, his boss was bipolar and went off the deep end, leaving Joe the boss. Uhoh. You know what that means, don’t you? Every time this family gets rich, they’re poor again within two episodes. They’re the unluckiest family in the world. Well, I guess you could say that the families who were posed dead in front of their TVs were the unluckiest. So let’s say they’re the unluckiest living family in the whole world.
