Allison and Joe Reunite in the Afterlife on 'Medium' Series Finale (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 24th 2011 2:30PM
As a taped message from a great-grandchild plays, Allison quietly passes away in a nursing home on the series finale of 'Medium' (Fri., 8PM ET on CBS). Joe, who died 41 years earlier in a plane crash, is patiently waiting as she enters the afterlife.

Earlier in the episode, Allison attempted to convince herself during an extended dream sequence that Joe wasn't dead. But, alas, her husband in fact died while returning from a business trip to Hawaii.

But now, as Allison succumbs to old age, the two are reunited "from now until the end of time."

'Medium' Series Finale Airs Tonight, Will You Miss It?

'Medium,' Allison DuBois, Patricia ArquetteTonight, Allison DuBois will help solve her last case in the series finale of 'Medium' at 8PM on CBS. That doesn't preclude any more real-life cuckoo Allison DuBois appearances on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' but there definitely won't be any more of Patricia Arquette's crime-solving psychic on Friday nights.

In November, after news of the show's cancellation broke, series creator Glenn Gordon Caron wrote of the final episode, "In what we believe will be a series defining episode, Allison and her family will stare destiny in the eye. And destiny will not blink."

Caron told Entertainment Weekly that the final episode will span many years of the characters' lives. "It takes place in the present, it takes place seven years after that, and then it takes place 40 years after that."

Arquette told EW in November, "It's been a great time. I love that time in my life."

We'll certainly miss our weekly 'Medium' fix. After the jump, watch the preview for tonight's finale and share your favorite 'Medium' moments. Will you miss the show?

Patricia Arquette Says CBS Has Canceled 'Medium'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 16th 2010 8:05AM
Patricia Arquette in 'Medium'Last month we reported that 'Medium' looked to be in trouble after CBS cut the Season 7 order to 13 episodes. Now, star Patricia Arquette says that the show has offically been canceled. (Again.)

In an interview with 'Entertainment Weekly' Arquette said "we got canceled," and that the show only has two more episodes to shoot. She said she's still in the dark as to how her character Allison's story will wrap up for good, but that the writers are excited about it. "They're like, 'we're just going to burn the whole thing down!'" Arquette's not looking forward to saying goodbye, however. "It's been a great time. I love that time in my life."

So far the suits at CBS have been tight-lipped about the show's future, but it's been dogged by falling ratings. CBS acquired the series after it was nixed by NBC, but this season's been averaging 7.1 million viewers, down from last season's average of 7.79 million. By comparison, it averaged 8.45 million when it aired on NBC.

Switching Bodies With a Daughter on the 'Medium' Premiere (VIDEO)

Switching Bodies With a Daughter on the 'Medium' PremiereLast year, the drama 'Medium' switched networks, moving from NBC to CBS. The change affected the show not a whit, as the paranormal investigation series just kept chugging along, ratings-wise. But on the season seven premiere of 'Medium' (Fri., 8PM ET on CBS), an entirely different type of "switching" took place.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

On the premiere, Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) shares a dream with her teenage daughter Bridgette (Maria Lark) -- a dream about a missing homeless man. Unfortunately, things get more complicated when this shared dream-experience somehow leads to the two of them swapping bodies. Now, Allison inhabits the body of her little girl, and vice-versa.

Patricia Arquette Calls Show's Move to CBS a 'Rollercoaster' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 28th 2010 12:30PM
According to Patricia Arquette, she was surprised when 'Medium' was cancelled last year after receiving informal assurances from NBC execs that the show would be picked up for another season.

But, it was even more surprising when it was announced the show would be moving to CBS, who owns the production company responsible for the paranormal crime drama, she said on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS).

George Romero's zombies to invade Medium this Halloween

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 4th 2009 7:00PM
medium cbs zombiesZombies are everywhere these days. The walking dead have invaded Marvel Comics, Jane Austen books, and they'll soon be chomping on brains in a galaxy far, far away.

This Halloween, Patricia Arquette will face off against a classic undead army in an upcoming episode of Medium. That's right, Medium!

Show creator Glenn Gordon Caron said an upcoming Halloween-themed episode will insert Arquette's character into scenes from George Romero's original Night of the Living Dead film. It's part a dream sequence that would not have happened if the show had stayed on NBC.

Hey, Medium is on CBS tonight

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 21st 2009 2:27PM
MediumI actually didn't even think about this when CBS grabbed Medium from NBC a couple of months ago, but how would the show appear on the schedule first? On the shelf until the fall? Would CBS wait until mid-season because they didn't have room for it in the fall? And how would they introduce the show to CBS viewers? Would they just start airing the show with new episodes?

Well, the answer comes tonight, as CBS airs a repeat episode ("Soul Survivor") of Medium at 10PM.

Medium: Bring Me The Head Of Oswaldo Castillo (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 2nd 2009 8:18AM
MediumOf course, this was the series finale on NBC only. The show moves to CBS next season where it will become CSI: Medium Los Angeles. Or something.

Last night Allison had visions of her entire family being murdered. That didn't happen, of course, but she did end the season in a coma after having a stroke during surgery. My guess? She gets out of it next season, but not before some trippy thing happening while she's in the coma for an episode or two.

What did you think of this episode?

Behind the scenes of the last ever Medium episode (on NBC, that is)

by Bob Sassone, posted May 28th 2009 5:34PM
We told you about CBS picking up Medium after a deal couldn't be made with NBC, and it's interesting to note that NBC's web site acknowledges that this isn't the series finale, it's only the series finale on NBC. The episode airs this Monday at 10.

It's called "Bring Me The Head Of Oswaldo Castillo," and the clip below shows what goes on behind the scenes of the making of a Medium episode. Obviously, there might be some spoilers here, so proceed with caution.

CBS picks up Medium, insults NBC

by Bob Sassone, posted May 19th 2009 4:27PM
MediumWell, this is a rather interesting development, and a good one for fans of NBC's Medium: CBS has picked up the show after NBC canceled it.

You don't often see that happening, but it's been happening more and more lately (and this upfront week is crazy in general, with lots of renewals for shows we all thought were pretty much dead). CBS didn't just pick up the show, they got in a few digs at NBC too. CBS Television Studios produces Medium, and they say that "NBC's cancellation of Medium is inexplicable to us," and went on to point out that "the ratings don't lie. Medium outperforms many of NBC's renewed shows." They also talk about how NBC scheduled the show inconsistently.

No word yet on what exactly CBS will do with the show. Perhaps pairing it with Ghost Whisperer on Friday nights? (Note: CBS will not, however, pick up Knight Rider. Sorry, fans!)

Medium: How To Make A Killing In Big Business - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 5th 2009 8:02AM
MediumYou know what I love about Medium? The theme song/opening. We all know that theme songs and openings are pretty much lame nowadays. Some shows hardly have them at all, so it's good to see a show with a real theme song and an interesting opening sequence. Medium's is very old-fashioned and reminds me of shows like Night Gallery or The Sixth Sense.

Last night's episode was part one of a three parter starring Tracy Pollan as a "corporate intuitionist." I never thought I'd put those two words together in the same sentence, but there you go.

Thomas Jane is Hung

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 1st 2008 2:02PM
Thomas JaneHBO has found the lead for one of their roughly 658 new "Hey, remember how we used to have good TV shows before we started giving you crap like John From Cincinnati? Huh? Do ya?" pilots.Thomas Jane (The Punisher) has been tapped to star in Hung, a one-hour dark comedy about a middle-aged high school basketball coach who figures out a way to use his best asset. Now, I'm no expert, but I'm guessing that the title doesn't mean that his best asset is his ability to tie a wicked hangman's noose.

Hung is a top priority at HBO, as new entertainment president Sue Naegle has made the spec script her first major purchase and first pilot pickup. Written by the creator of The Riches and directed by Oscar winner Alexander Payne (Sideways), Hung marks Jane's first regular TV role. He has, of course, previously made TV appearances, including a stint on wife Patricia Arquette's series, Medium.

Medium: Wicked Game (part 2) - VIDEO

by Paul Goebel, posted Apr 1st 2008 8:01AM

Farewell, Cynthia(S04E10) I suppose one of the drawbacks of a suspenseful show like Medium doing a two parter is that while waiting a week for the second part, most viewers will have come close to figuring out what's going on. In this case, I wasn't too concerned with figuring out why Suzie Keener's roommate wasn't dead until I was stuck in traffic today and started thinking about reviewing the show tonight. Moreover, the previews made it pretty clear that Joanna was the mastermind of the entire abduction.

Luckily, this was all made clear in the first fifteen minutes of the show. What followed was my favorite kind of episode. The kind where we, the audience, know exactly what happened, and we get to watch the hero snare the guilty party. It was like watching a pretty version of Columbo.

The Dubois in happier times(S04E09) "What could possibly give that woman nightmares other than someone named Dorothy dropping a house on her?" - Joe Dubois

Finally a show that isn't afraid to face the real issues men face today. Can't we just be allowed to have our swimsuit issue without being made to feel guilty?

I guess our collective suspicions about Cynthia Keener were right, although it isn't much of a shock. Her abducted daughter not only explains why she is committed to finding missing children but also why she's such a bitch.
