Did you catch the premiere of NBC’s new drama, Medium? I have a new regular spot set aside on TiVo for this one. Patricia Arquette stars as Allison Dubois, a suburban housewife who is coming to grips with the fact that she has regular conversations with dead people. This is no Haley Joel Osment corniness… it is a new twist on crime solving. Despite the fact that they tried a bit too hard to add comedy, (ala making the Texas Rangers out to be slack-jawed boors and morons,) the show appears to have great potential in the mystery genre.

Jake Weber stars as her confused but very understanding husband and I was surprised to notice that Kelsey Grammer is the Executive Producer. (ie. he put up the money)
