raines4343.jpgNBC’s new series Raines looks surprisingly like NBC’s hit dead-people show Medium. I know, I know… its not the exact same premise… but its pretty frickin close.

From what I can gather, this Raines fella (Jeff Goldblum) sees visions of crime victims (its his imagination – not ghosts) and working with them, they solve the case.

The cast appears to be pretty awesome as I am a big Goldblum fan and I especially like Matt Craven, but isn’t this ghost whispering, I-see-dead-people, imagination theme running a bit thin? Heck, I guess if you can 13 CSIs and 27 Law & Orders, you can have 3 crime shows featuring people who aren’t really there.
