MEDIUM “Talk To The Hand” Review

MEDIUM (CBS) "Talk to the Hand"

MEDIUM “Talk To The Hand” Season 7 Episode 5- Personally, I hate it when my hand won’t listen to me. Especially when it decides to undo the trousers of a dead man or, even worse, changing the channels on a whim.

Allison DuBois has this problem. After spilling boiling water over her arm, she had to get a skin graf. Afterwards she cannot stop dreaming of a woman called Monica who worked in a hospital. This woman was tasered and abducted from her home. She was then put in the trunk of a car, knocked unconscious, had her throat slit and her skin removed. In short, she had a really bad night.

Allison knows who killed Monica: a surgeon who was in cahoots with a burial home owner. Together they sold skin and bones to other hospitals, cutting them from the unwilling deceased.

Meanwhile, Bridgette has become the star soccor player on her team after she gets some private coaching from a dead guy. The coach has his own agenda: he wants Bridgette’s fairly pathetic team to face off with his old one so that his team will win by a landslide. They do, but Bridgette learns a valuable lesson. Joe is unsure whether this qualifies as cheating and he gets in a bit of a tif with Allison over her psychic abilities.

One of my favorite moments was probably when Marie and Joe sat down on the bench simultaneously. It was just adorable.

I wonder if Monica’s possession of Allison’s arm will come up in the future. Patricia Arquette is always amazing, and this episode she got to do some great physical acting. I’m glad to see and Allison and Scanlon seem to have patched things up. I’m sure there’s some residual tension between them, but it’s nice to see they can work together without mention of ‘the brother’.

Sofia Vassilieva is still in the main titles, which means I can breathe a sigh of relief and expect to see her Ariel pop up sometime soon.

Another fantastic episode of Medium. I am continually perplexed that this show has not gotten the attention it deserves.
