Ghost Whisperer is an American supernatural show, which premiered on CBS on September 23, 2005.[2]

The series follows the life of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who has the ability to see and communicate with ghosts. While trying to live as normal a life as possible, Melinda helps them pass over to the other side by working as an owner of an antique store, sometimes dealing with people who push her away, and disbelieve her ability.[3] The show was created by John Gray and is produced by Sander/Moses Productions, in association with ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios.[4]

American ancillary rights are held by CBS, while ABC holds ancillary rights elsewhere.

Premise

Ghost Whisperer is a series that follows the life of Melinda Gordon, a young woman from the fictional town of Grandview who has the ability to see and communicate with the dead. Melinda lives with her husband Jim, and is the owner of an antique shop. Ghosts seek Melinda's help in relaying a message or completing a task that will put the spirit to rest, and allow them to cross over into The Light, a metaphor presented by the show as its concept of the equivalent of Heaven. Those who died after accumulating more sin than merit are led into an afterlife of restlessness. To seek redress, these spirits appear through an intermediary Melinda Gordon and she works with them to create a more favorable spiritual balance with those still living. Once the imbalance between merit and sin has been restored to a favorable plane, the spirits can then proceed to what is indeed their final resting place.

The First Season introduces Romano, a former cult leader from Europe who influenced his followers to commit a mass suicide in 1930. His own suicide transformed him into an earth-bound negative entity. Romano attempts to do the exact opposite of Melinda and gather earthbound souls and prevent them from crossing over into the Light. Also, Melinda suffers a huge personal loss at the end of the season.

In the Second Season, Melinda meets Delia Banks, her son Ned Banks, and Professor Rick Payne, all of whom, by season's end, come to learn of Melinda's power, with contrasting reactions, although Delia remains slightly skeptical. The second season revolves around the thinning veil between the living and the dead. Melinda meets a man whose arrival in Grandview sets the final events of a disastrous prophecy in motion, and the strengthening of the dark side over the Light, which may result in the death of a loved one.

In the Third Season, Melinda searches in her family history for answers as she gets closer and closer to learning the secret of her gift, her childhood, and her father.

In the Fourth Season Melinda meets Eli James after a fire at Rockland University, who after his near-death experience, develops the ability to listen to ghosts. Melinda also says goodbye to her close friend Rick Payne, who leaves Grandview on a research trip for the university.

In the Fifth Season, we are introduced to Jim and Melinda's son, Aiden Lucas. Melinda fears that her son will be in great danger, because he seems to be more powerful than she is. He can see the 'shinies and the shadows'.

Production

Development

Ghost Whisperer is based on the work of "Spirit Communicator" James Van Praagh,[5] who is co-executive producer[6] and regularly updates a blog about the show through LivingTV.[7] The stories are also said to be based in part on the work of "Spirit Communicator" Mary Ann Winkowski.[8] Development of the show dates back to at least two years before its premiere.[9]

The show is currently produced by Sander/Moses Productions in association with CBS Television Studios (originally Paramount Network Television in season one and CBS Paramount Network Television in seasons two and three) and ABC Studios (originally Touchstone Television in the first two seasons).

The show is filmed on the Universal Studios back lot in Los Angeles.[10] One area on the lot is Courthouse Square from the Back to the Future trilogy, though it has been drastically modified to portray Grandview. For example, the clock tower present in Back to the Future has been completely covered up. Cast and crew members also believe that the set gets visits from real spirits.[11]

Sound effects are completed at Smart Post Sound.[12] Visual effects for the pilot and some season 1 episodes were completed at Flash Film Works.[13] Visual effects for nearly the entire series have been created at Eden FX.[14]

Production notes

Ghost Whisperer was originally produced by Paramount Television and Touchstone Television.

The show's title is a reference to the main character Melinda Gordon (portrayed by Jennifer Love Hewitt), who lives in the town of Grandview, New York with her husband Jim (David Conrad), a medic from Mercy Hospital.

Creator John Gray grew up in Brooklyn, New York, which is not far from Grandview-On-Hudson, west of the Hudson River. Piermont is referenced often in episodes as the neighboring town, which is accurate to real life as Grandview-On-Hudson is actually located just north of Piermont. And Professor Rick Payne worked in the fictional "Rockland University", and coincidentally, the actual Grandview, New York is a village located in Rockland County, New York.

The first season premiered on September 23, 2005 and ended on May 6, 2006. It has received an average of 10.20 million viewers. Season two of Ghost Whisperer premiered on September 22, 2006 and ended on May 11, 2007, again airing Friday nights on CBS during the same timeslot.[citation needed] CBS officially renewed the show for a third season placing it in its regular Friday 8 p.m. time slot. (Eastern US Time) The third season premiered September 28, 2007. Due to the writers strike 12 episodes were completed before the strike. However, once the strike ended, CBS had announced that the show would return April 4, 2008 with 6 episodes.[15] On February 15, 2008, CBS renewed Ghost Whisperer for a fourth season.[16] For the fourth season, Jamie Kennedy would join the cast as the psychology professor Eli James and Jay Mohr would be leaving after appearing in the first episode as his character Professor Rick Payne takes a sabbatical (Mohr took a role in Gary Unmarried).[17] Previously recurring cast member Christoph Sanders also joined as a regular cast member. The fourth season of Ghost Whisperer premiered on Friday, October 3, 2008 and concluded on May 15, 2009. The season consisted of 23 episodes.[18][19] It was announced in an interview by P.K. Simonds with E! Online that Ghost Whisperer will return for a 5th Season.[20]

The show costs an average $3 million per episode to produce, a cost that is split between ABC Studios and CBS.

CBS officially renewed Ghost Whisperer for a fifth season on May 20, 2009. The fifth season began airing on Friday, September 25, 2009 at 8pm EST.[21][22]

The opening sequence showcases the work of Maggie Taylor

Syndication

On May 5, 2008 it was announced that the first three seasons of Ghost Whisperer were purchased for $169.8 million ($700,000 per episode, per network) for syndication by SyFy, ION Television, and WE TV. Episodes began airing in Summer 2009 on ION, and in Fall 2009 on SyFy and WE.[23]

Internet promotion

Ghost Whisperer: The Other Side A series of webisodes entitled Ghost Whisperer: The Other Side have been released on the Ghost Whisperer website.[24] A total of eight webisodes were produced and extras (such as trailers and behind the scenes) are available for viewing. The story follows Zach (played by Mark Hapka), a young delivery boy who dies while delivering a package. He soon learns how to do things in the spirit world, and gets revenge on Danny, the man he thinks killed him, and his former best friend. Melinda from the television series doesn't appear in the internet series as it takes place entirely in the spirit world. However, ghosts from the television series have appeared in some webisodes.

In the second season finale of Ghost Whisperer, Zach made an appearance while trying to get help from Melinda before being taken into the Dark Side leaving the internet series in its own cliffhanger.

The second season of The Other Side premiered on the LivingTV website on January 18, 2008.[24] Season 3 deals with Marc trying to help his high school crush Olivia find true love as her ex soon to be husband does not love her.

andshamethedevil.net andshamethedevil.net[25] is a site linked to Ghost Whisperer. The site is mentioned in the Season 3 premiere. By visiting the site and clicking on the word 'bloody', it leads to another site rubloodymary.com By clicking on the star in the upper right hand corner, the site appears to crack into pieces. Those pieces can be moved by dragging, revealing this message: "Meet Me In The Underworld". Small type at the bottom of the page read the repeated words: "bloody mary. bloody mary. bloody mary."

rubloodymary.com rubloodymary.com is mentioned in episode 302—"Don't Try This At Home"—which prominently features the Bloody Mary Urban Legend. When visiting rubloodymary.com if you click and hold down anywhere on the main page and scrub you can erase the image, revealing another image underneath that reads "...until she is trapped underground." Above that there is a countdown timer that, doing the math, counts down to Friday, October 26, 2007, episode 3.05 of Ghost Whisperer aired that night.

Other features: There is a stories link that takes you to a book with a Bloody Mary tale in it. The very last line reads "I hope she doesn't go into the church."

Finally, there is an email address to which to connect, and several links, some to the Ghost Whisperer Myspace page and ghostwhisperer.com and one that links back to andshamethedevil.net which is another secret Ghost Whisperer site.

penthius.info In the series, the Penthius site is often used by Melinda to look up information about the families and ghosts that she is investigating in Grandview. A real world version of this site has been up since February 2008. The site description reads: "Penthius.Info is a free search engine and video super site based on the search engine in the television series The Ghost Whisperer with Jennifer Love Hewitt." It was first mentioned in a post on TV.com by misscalais,[26] a fan who created the site to promote the show.

Season 1

Melinda: [Opening narration for each Season 1 episode] My name is Melinda Gordon. I just got married. I just moved to a small town. I just opened an antique shop. I might be just like you. Except from the time I was a little girl I knew I could talk to the dead. Earthbound spirits my grandmother called them. The ones who have not crossed over because they have unfinished business with the living and they come to me for help. In order to tell you my story, I have to tell you theirs.

Pilot [1.1]

Michael: [to Melinda] It's amazing how much you miss somebody you never met.

Jim: Don't tell me you see something?
Melinda: No, no.
Jim: Good, cause it would be nice to keep the celebration among the living.

Melinda: Did we forget to pay the light bill?
Jim: I have a headache, and I crossed two wrong circuit wires in the basement.
Melinda: That's why you're a paramedic and not an electrician.

Andrea: You didn't tell him?
Melinda: Tell him what? That his dead father was dripping wet mud on my living room floor?
Andrea: Point taken.

Andrea: Are you telling me that Village Java is haunted?
Melinda: No, places aren't haunted, people are haunted.

Melinda: I'm glad I have someone looking out for me.
Jim: I'm looking out for me. You punch really hard during those bad dreams.

Melinda: Let me see, two weeks in Bermuda or Andrea's salary?
Andrea: Honeymoons are so overrated.

Michael: Must be great having supernatural powers.
Melinda: Not really.

Melinda: [to Jim] We’re in a life business. Death is just a part of it.

The Crossing [1.2]

Candace: For the first time in my life, I hate being young.

Melinda: Kenny, I need to go talk to your mom, so I need you to stay with Andrea.
Kenny: The blind lady? She's weird.

Faith: Why won't she take Clancy? She got something against the Irish?
Jim: I'm sure she likes the Irish.

Dylan: Hey, Andrea, I've got something for you.
[gives her a rock]
Andrea: You shouldn't have.

Dylan: Kenny, said it was safe.
Melinda: And if Kenny said it was safe to jump in front of a moving truck, you'd do it too?

Jim: Wait, didn't you say that kid Dylan was playing with him? Well, how could he see him?
Melinda: Kids can almost always see spirits. Where do you think imaginary friends come from?

Melinda: What are you doing here, anyways?
Kenny: Waiting for my mommy.
Melinda: Here?
Kenny: She told me when I get lost I should just stay where I am and she'll find me.
Melinda: Maybe she doesn't know where to look. It might be time to go find her.

Faith: Relax Jim, I'm not going to haunt the girl...I just want to get to know her.

Ghost, Interrupted [1.3]

Jim: Will wants to meet Andrea before their date.
Melinda: Meet? Does he know we're talking about a dinner date and not a pre-nuptial agreement.

Will: Have you ever heard of a antique related emergency?
Andrea: Um, uh, no.

Zoe: We slept together while my sister slept in the other room. I was drunk and feeling sorry for myself, I don't know what his excuse was.

Barbara Harper: You run an antique shop in Grandview, isn't that right?
Melinda: Yes.
Barbara Harper: And you're an amateur psychiatrist in your off hours?

Zoe: I'm dead, Natalie's stuck in a nut house, and he's off to keggers, to score with sorority chicks.

Melinda's Grandma: Do you have any idea how many people I've helped cross over? I'm beginning to feel like a travel agent who's never been on a plane.

Zoe: [to Melinda] I guess if you let on you can see me, the good doctor would lock you up too.

Zoe: [to Melinda] My sister needs me, she's barely half a person without me. As long as she's in this nut-house, I'm not crossing my legs, never mind crossing over.

Zoe: Is that light out there for me?
Melinda: You're the only one who can see it.

Mended Hearts [1.4]

Cliff: Was that a date?
Melinda: Did it feel like a date?
Cliff: Well, she left before dinner arrived, so, roughly, I'd say yes.

Melinda: What's it like to have a second chance?
Cliff: I'm still wondering what happened to the first chance.

Cliff: [(to his rehab group] I always felt I had one foot in the grave and the other one on a banana peel. [silence from the group] Wow! Tough room.

Nurse: Are you family?
Melinda: Well, in the family of man, yeah, I guess.

Melinda: Sorry we woke you. This one is having boundary issues.
Jim: Don't they all.

Melinda: [to Cliff] Why did you take the heart? To avoid death or to choose life?

Melinda: [after Nurse Ghost helps Melinda gain access to the donor records] Can I do anything for you?
Nurse Ghost: Raincheck.

Melinda: You said there was one more thing you needed to do.
Connor: It might seem kind of morbid.
Melinda: Hello...I'm talking to a dead person.

Melinda: You're not really here.
Connor: Semantics.

Lost Boys [1.5]

Mr. Abrams: Like I said it gets spooky around here.

Tobias Northrop: [about Rat] He hated his name, loved his nickname.

Jim: [seeing a bouncing ball on their stairs] Umm, do you want to explain this?
Melinda: Tomorrow.

Melinda: I just figured it out. It's not me not liking Lou. I don't like who you are around him.

Jim: I feel like I'm living in a John Carpenter film.

Andrea: I'm listening to you. I'm just not paying attention.

Homecoming [1.6]

Melinda: [about a baby in an incubator] So much sorrow for such a young life. I think what you're doing is great.
Angel: It's a calling, like yours. You're helping someone who's adopted?
Melinda: He wants to find his mother. I'm hoping the hospital records will have her name, maybe an old address.
Angel: Tricky business. Although from what I've learned over the years you can always count on the courts to have adoption records on file. Although getting to see them is another matter.
[Monitor goes flat and the Angel smiles gently.]
Angel: Time for us to go.

Diane: I'm not going to try to protect him anymore.
Melinda: Protect him from what?
Diane: From his birth mother, she's not the angel he thinks she is.

Melinda: I have to tell a woman the baby she gave away eighteen years ago is dead, and then I have to tell her he wants to meet her. It's not the type of conversation you want to have over the phone.
Jim: Or in person.

Sybil: What's it like being dead?
Jason: Kind of like being a freshman all over again.

Melinda: We have company downstairs.
Jim: Living or dead?
Melinda: One of each.

Andrea: Either I have a fever or I'm seeing ghosts now too.

Jason: What if she doesn't remember me?
Melinda: I've never given birth but from what I've heard it's not something you forget.

Jason: [to Melinda] Waiting in line is worse than being dead.

Melinda: [looking at babies in the hospital nursery] Someday we'll have one of our own.
Jim: Four or five.
Melinda: Ouch! We'll definitely need a bigger house.

Hope and Mercy [1.7]

Melinda: I learned a long time ago, don't question the cosmic law of French toast.
Jim: The what?

Melinda: I represent a patient of yours.
Nurse Derek Lee: As in discharge?
Melinda: As in dearly departed.

Nurse Derek Lee: [about the morgue] They say this place is haunted.
Melinda: I've got news for you, they're right.

Jim: Are we the puppet masters or are we the puppets?

Jim: Where were you?
Melinda: Oh...I um...
Jim: I figured a hospital that you must be in hog heaven.
Melinda: It's not all it's cracked up to be.

Andrea: [to Melinda, about Jim] Sexy, sensitive and indestructable. I've got to get me a man like that.

Hope: Nobody can see me except for you.
Melinda: It's a gift I have. Can I tell you , you're a little pushy.
Hope: If you were in my position you would be too.

Jim: Am I dead?
Melinda: No.
Jim: You never know with you?

Melinda: Brad, you should read her note I found it in her charts.
Brad: I can't, you read it.
Melinda: Brad, I know you feel like this is your fault, but I want you to know that I don't blame you, you've always taken better care of me than I have myself from the day I first laid...
[Overlapping voice of Melinda and Hope]
Melinda and Hope: Eyes on you in detention and that hasn't changed today...
[Completely fades into Hopes voice]
Hope: I've never felt more in love with you then when I watched you all worried and sweaty and careworn running beside the gurney when they wheeled me in here so please, please don't wallow. Oh, and if I'm not awake when you get back, don't forget to feed Daisy and walk her, see you tomorrow, I love you.
Melinda: Hope.
Brad: Wow, I guess we're even.
[Brad gets up and leaves]
Hope: Thank you.
[Hope gets up and walks off with Brad until she fades into the light]

On the Wings of a Dove [1.8]

Alexis: I'm so glad Andrea talked you into having lunch with me today.
Melinda: Actually, Andrea told me not to come.

Melinda: I can see you and you don't scare me. What do you want with my husband?
Julian: It's not your husband I want, its you.

Rachel: What has the son of a bitch done now?
Melinda: He hasn't done anything except die.
Rachel: Well. I figured it would happen sooner or later. Looks like it's sooner.

Andrea: Please, we saw The Ring together, you stayed under your seat.

Julian: [to his son] Find the parents of the man I killed. Don't tell them who you are. Befriend them. Do good things for them. Make their lives easier. Make a difference.

Melinda: Do you want us to go?
Andrea: What's a malevolent spirit or two between friends?

Melinda: You all need to cross over.

Romano: Oh really? I beg to differ, you can all stay right here!

Melinda: Yes, you can, but you shouldn't. There's nothing here for you anymore.

Romano: That's a lie! Your families are here, your friends, your homes. No one knows what's on the other side, why take that chance?

Melinda: You were all meant to move on, that's why you died.

Romano: You died because the plane crashed.

Melinda: The right thing to do is to cross over.

Romano: The right thing? How many of you have done the right thing? You, you're wife is dying, isn't she? You didn't take this job becuase you needed the hours, you took this job because you hated to see her sick, to see her suffer, because you just needed to get away. Don't feel so bad, I've done terrible things too, things you can't even imagine...just look around you. All in a days work for me. What if the only thing that's waiting for you on the other side of that light is judgement and punishment?

Melinda: What's waiting there is peace and forgiveness.

Romano: Really? Have you been?

Melinda: No, but I know it's true.


The Ghosts follow Romano.

Melinda: Wait a minute. No. Wait a minute! I have devoted my life to this! My grandmother devoted her life to this! I have crossed over hundreds of souls and now maybe, I don't know what's behind the light but I have seen the faces of the people that I've crossed over. I've seen there eyes and their smiles. I've seen them weep for joy. I've felt their peace. You just have to have a little faith, it's that simple. You're not alone and all of this was meant to be and the only thing I know for sure is that there is love there, love like you have never known here and you can't just turn away from that.
