Ghost Whisperer returns to my viewing schedule this week. It’s a bitter sweet return, since the show is horrible. It is better than watching Almanac though.
A car was stolen, the punk kid who stole it was caught, and he had a little stare down with Jennifer Love Hewitt. On the way home in the newly recovered car, Hewitt and hubby start hearing spirit voices. EVP, you know, electronic voice phenomenon? It’s when you accidentally record something that sounds like a human voice, so you think it’s a ghost. It is not a ghost.
Let’s see if we can’t find something to hinder the EVP investigation this episode. Oh good, hubby’s mother is visiting. The mother also brought her “boyfriend.” Oh no, how uncomfortable! That will be an annoying and tired little sub-plot device.
Luckily for Hewitt, there is an EVP expert near by! He found out that the ghost voices are saying “I am waiting for you.” They might just be trying to sing a romantic love song to her. That would explain why she is getting a headache every time it starts happening. It sounds like a pretty stupid love song.
Hewitt then went into the woods at night, like the voices have been telling her to do. If you hear voices that tell you to go into the woods…you know, I don’t even have to tell you. It’s common sense.
All the electrical appliances in the house are going off, like in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I don’t want to use the same adjective twice in the same review, but it is tired! Tired!
So car stealing kid’s mother passed away. Ahhh, that explains the electric ghost. Mystery solved. Oh, wait, except for the fact that the kid’s father must have killed her. Mystery solved! But there is still a half an hour left. Why can’t I reach into the TV and give Hewitt the answers?
Why is Hewitt so boring? Her character is just so boring!
Rats, I was wrong. The kid’s mother died while she was fooling around with another man in the woods. She fell down a well and was electrocuted. Wow, tough break. Her son is all disillusioned because she was having an affair. Now he is squandering his talent. Boo hoo hoo. Grab me a bucket, because I have enough tears to solve the drought problems in a few third world countries.
EMT hubby dug up some dirt on his mother’s “special friend.” That’s the sub-plot, remember? I don’t care about that. Neither should you.
The electro ghost mom wants Hewitt to find the red glove. It’s a damn book. And it probably sucks. She can’t cross over because she wants her son to publish his stupid book? It’s about a young man who doesn’t know how to tell his father that he is gay. Golly, do you think that symbolizes something?
Sub-plot sub-plot sub-plot.
Kid’s trying to burn down his mother’s lover’s house. Hewitt comes in to save the day. More tears. I grab another tear bucket. Where should I ship this bucket of tears to? The land of “Who Cares?” That was terrible. Sorry for not being witty enough.
