The Title Is A Misnomer
18 July 2019 | by juanruiz-65679See all my reviews

The series stands out for it use of children as the main characters. From S1 E2 to S5 E22, the take front and center. And, in each case, the actors portaying them do exceedingly well.

Another aspect of this episode is the title: it's wrong. From the pilot through introductions of the first and second seasons, it's made clear that Melinda's first ghost is the man at the funeral service, who asks her to deliver a message to his widow. Her bewilderment "Gramma, I don't understand." "You will, dear." makes that clear.

Aside from that it's another excellent script from an early period of the series.
