Guess ABC is not swooping in to save Medium. After seven seasons, this supernatural show/mystery/domestic drama is coming to an end. Was it revolutionary? No. But it featured one of the most realistic families on television (all the psychics aside), its leads had tremendous chemistry, and I for one will miss it. Let's take a moment to list some of my favorite episodes.

I stumbled across this completely bizarre video on YouTube this morning, and I had to share it. It’s a little bit older, as Patricia Arquette has longer hair, but it’s an interview with EW.com in which she discusses her top 5 urban legends. They start out normal enough, with the legend of cats having 9 lives. Then, things get progressively sillier. She talks about cats being grown in bowls, a variety of snow people, and how Saskwatch is a fancy foreign name for Bigfoot. The video is compeltely random and completely hilarious. Check it out below:

That was quicker than I thought; Black-celebration.net has uploaded the three available promotional images for Medium's Sixth Season, plus a few new Promotional stills for Medium's fourth season, which are variations of the older ones (its kinda hard to tell what's old or new).

UNIVERSAL CITY — The girls who play Patricia Arquette's TV daughters on NBC's Medium shriek in terror and burst into tears.

The cause? Not the talking corpses or serial-killing ghosts Arquette encounters in her Emmy-winning role as seer Allison Dubois, but actors in ghoulish masks and makeup at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights.

Arquette, 38, is with the young actresses — Sofia Vassilieva, 14, (who plays daughter Ariel) and Maria Lark, 9 (Bridgette) — on the outing. (Twins Miranda and Madison Carabello, 4, who alternately play Arquette's youngest daughter, Marie, and Arquette's daughter, Harlow, 3, were deemed too young to join in.) And they are all dressed for the occasion: Arquette in a sailor uniform from her closet, Sofia in an elegant medieval princess costume she found in France, and little Maria as a battle-damaged Roman gladiator.

The close-knit cast returns for Medium's third season Nov. 15 with a two-hour opener (9 p.m. ET/PT) before the show settles into its regular 10 p.m. time slot. Arquette's real-life husband, Thomas Jane (The Punisher), guest-stars. On the Medium set, the child actresses are generally shielded from any gore.

Found these sitting on my Documents File and thought I would upload them. I think a few them might be from the [Most Epic} PicSpam I uploaded once, while others are some I uploaded awhile ago but never really had any thought to put them into good use for public viewing. What the hey, I'm bored and felt like oogling at Mr. Weber here. Enjoy the eyecandy!

Medium Joe DuboisThere is no doubt in anyone's mind that the NBC show Medium is centered around the Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) character, who is, of course, the "Medium" that the show's title refers to.  But try to imagine Medium without the presence of her husband Joe.  It's tough to do.  Joe, played fantastically by Jake Weber, has redefined the role of TV "background husband."  His unflagging support of and belief in Allison is a key contributing factor to the audience's support and belief in her.  He is the everyman – the voice of reason and logic when things are teetering on the ledge of the freak-a-deak abyss.  When Allison wakes up in the middle of the night from her most recent psych-adelic trip in dreamscape and immediately wants to call D.A. Devalos, it is Joe who asks: "Is this really something that can't wait until morning?"  Even though it never really can wait, it is still the logical question to ask.

His place in the DuBois family is well established – he is the cornerstone.  He is the family's firm foundation.  He is the calm within the psychic storm.  While Allison is gallivanting around Phoenix looking at corpses and talking to dead people, Joe is taking the kids to school…again.   This is why the latter half of Season 3 packed a surprisingly more emotional wallop to the longtime Medium fans who have always relied on Joe to be the safe port in Allison's storm.  Instead, Joe is the one thrust into a living nightmare in "Joe Day Afternoon," flipping the DuBois status quo on its ear.   As fantastic as that episode was, it became retroactively fabulous when Joe wasn't "back to normal" by the next episode; thus breaking another non-serialized television rule.  His symbiotic relationship with Allison was affected, the kids were worried about him for a change, and things deteriorated to the point that he eventually lost his job in the Season Finale!  
 
This is not the Joe we know and trust; but that is not necessarily a bad thing.  Throwing Joe into that hostage situation, and not letting him just "get over it" so easily, has given us added dimensions to a character that had become almost pigeon-holed by his steadfast loyalty and dependability.  It is refreshing, and it makes the extended wait that much more difficult to bear.

It's the Husband, Joe

I've seen almost every episode of NBC's Medium since it debuted last year. The show succeeds because it integrates a crazy premise (a woman's psychic dreams help her solve crimes) with a completely normal family life.  The character who holds everything together is Joe Dubois, portrayed by Jake Weber. He is the "perfect" husband of the title character, Allison. His job is to keep the family running while serving as a sounding board for his wife's dreams. The show typically begins like most Law & Order and CSI shows, as someone is getting killed or severely harmed. Instead of the cops showing up to clean up the mess, we see Allison waking up from a dream.

Unfortunately, this doesn't mean the crime is all a dream. Joe usually has to help Allison interpret the dream. Either the crime happened in the past, or it will happen in the future.  After getting some advice from Joe, Allison goes to her job as a consultant with the Phoenix Police Department. There, she helps to solve (or prevent) the crime.

Joe is a great character because of his reaction to his wife's special gift. He accepts and understands the way she is, and he tries to calm Allison down and figure out what the dream means. At the same time, Joe is often confused and exasperated by his wife's reaction to her dreams. He is forced to live in the real world, while his wife is literally interacting with ghosts.

We also see the realistic aspect of Joe and Allison's life. When they aren't talking in bed about Allison's latest dream, we see them making breakfast and carting their girls off to school. Allison (Patricia Arquette) is a strong character, too, but she is always busy dealing with her nighttime visions. Joe is almost an extension of the audience, as he wonders how Allison's dreams relate to real life.

Honorable mention goes to the oldest daughter, Ariel (played by Sofia Vassilieva). She is very believable as a moody, confused 13-year-old who occasionally experiences the same type of dreams as her mother and fights with her younger sister. When she was younger, she played the title role in "Eloise at the Plaza" and "Eloise at Christmastime" along with Julie Andrews.

Three Promotional Images and Ten Episodic Stills For Season Five Released by NBC so far (found on Medium Dreams.com and black-celebration.net [Daydreaming]). That and a couple of Season Three and Four Stills. I would love to know how people their hands on these kinds of promotional images given that NBC hasn't updated their gallery from Season 4 & 3 yet.
