Ghost Whisperer: Rating: 1 stars

I see dead people — and bad wigs.

Reviewed May 25, 2006

From the unscrupulously imaginative mind of James van Praagh comes yet another bad excuse for entertainment. Jennifer Love Hewitt plays a psychic who helps the restless spirits of the dead cross over — geez, it’s not like that concept has been done to death (pardon the pun).

The plots are nowhere near as interesting as J-Love’s fashion statements, which are scarier than any ghost you’ll see onscreen. Occasionally, there’s an image or a situation which, if you were just coming into the room late at night and slightly drunk, could be construed as somewhat creepy; these moments, however, are too few and far between to make regular viewing worthwhile. Get out the Ouija board and have your own seánce instead.
