Medium – The Final Season
For seven years, Allison Dubois has been working as assistant of District Attorney Manuel Devalos. With the help of her visions she’s been able to solve crime after crime and bring justice to the guilty. However, the balance between her career and personal life has always been a difficult task and in this last season this isn’t getting any easier.
Next to the standard cases we get to see in each episode, she has to help her colleague, detective Lee Scanlon, who’s being haunted by an evil spirit, her daughter Ariel is going off to college which marks a drastic change on the homefront, and her relationship with Joe comes to a drastic and unexpected turning point.
This final season flows forward in a similar way as the previous seasons but has a bit more focus on wrapping up the stories on the different characters in the series, and giving us a view on where they’re going after the series ends. This doesn’t really make the final season stand out too much from the rest but does provide a little bit more depth and immersion, immersion that’s necessary to really get into the final episode.
Although Medium isn’t one of the true top TV shows, it has provided decent entertainment for seven seasons and ends nicely with a finale that is both surprising as well as satisfying.
On the technical side we get similar image and sound quality as in the previous season releases, meaning things look and sound nice but never really stand out. The extras are a nice package with a Making Of, a look back at the show, a feature on Lee Scanlon, a gag reel and more. All in all a nice box that marks the end of a series that maybe never truly reached the top of television but did manage to keep the viewers interested enough to keep watching.
