Her Dreams Are a Murderer�s Worst Nightmare More Supernatural Crime Solving in Season 4 of Medium

What would you do if each night you went to sleep your dreams revealed important evidence regarding a murder? What if your dreams informed you of a crime that was about to occur, and you must convince authorities that your revelations are true, not just a strange hallucination?

What would you do if each night you went to sleep your dreams revealed important evidence regarding a murder? What if your dreams informed you of a crime that was about to occur, and you must convince authorities that your revelations are true, not just a strange hallucination? What if by simply touching another person you could penetrate their soul and unmask their personas?

The life of Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) partially answers some of the above questions. �Medium� (2005-present) focuses on the life of a psychic mother of three children who works for the District Attorney. Early on in the series Allison must struggle to convince her superiors that her gift is real; with time, and with numerous correct predictions, her boss Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) recognizes her supernatural talent. Arquette�s character borrows her first and last name from real-life psychic detective Allison DuBois, who has reportedly assisted numerous law enforcement agencies across the United States in solving crimes.

Joe (Jake Weber) is the patriarch of the family, a highly skilled engineer whose specialty is literally rocket science. As the only man in the house he juggles the stress of work with his wife and daughters� extraordinary gift.

Season 4 kicks off with Allison having disturbing dreams of a boy kidnapped at a toy store and eventually joins the case�s investigative team. Joe�s career search continues, and he needs his wife�s psychic skills to land him the job. Meanwhile, Bridgette (Maria Lark) has recurring dreams about a debt collector � who is half way across the world.

Devalos is struggling to win control of the D.A.�s office again, though Allison has revelations that one of his key supporters is a murderer. Joe and Allison�s relationship is stressed when Bridgette�s science project creates an uncomfortable situation, as their daughter reveals visions of upcoming financial strife. In an effort to woo Allison, Joe buys her a stunning new car � only to discover it was used in a horrendous crime. Last but not least, the psychic wonder woman attempts to determine if a house is haunted, and unearths that a tragic accident occurred years prior.

�Medium� is unique from other crime dramas in that one can miss a few episodes each season without becoming completely lost -- not that you would want to in the first place. While the idea of psychic crime solving may seem to be old hat, �Medium� puts an interesting spin on the scenario and manages to remain lively throughout each episode. This is no doubt due to its wonderful cast which often includes guest stars such as Kelsey Grammer, David Arquette, Jason Priestley, Molly Ringwald and others too numerous to mention here.
