The Real Life Medium

Movies based on a true story are commonplace. Most of the true stories on TV come in the form of reality television. And we all know how much reality is involved in reality television. I am not familiar with many fictional television shows actually based on real people. But today, we’re going to talk about one. I missed Medium when new episodes were airing on TV (NBC). Only recently did I discover Medium on Netflix streaming. Though the show has its shortcomings, I quickly got interested in the format and in the characters. I am now in Season 5 of Medium. I watch an episode every day during my lunch break. About the Show Medium centers on Phoenix, Arizona wife, mother, and medium Allison Dubois (played by Patricia Arquette) who works as an “independent contractor” for the Phoenix District Attorney’s office. Allison uses her abilities, which manifest in the form of dreams, to help solve crimes — usually murders. [Fun factoids: Actress Patricia Arquette won an Emmy for her portrayal of Allison Dubois.   Glen Gordon Caron, who created Moonlighting, did the scriptwriting.] …
