Plot

Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) is a strong-willed mother of three, a devoted wife, and law student who begins to suspect that she can talk to dead people, see the future in her dreams, and read people's thoughts. Fearing for her mental health, she turns for support to her husband Joe (Jake Weber), an aerospace engineer, who slowly comes to believe that what his wife is telling him just might be true, upon discovering that some of her dreams match the details of a murder in Texas. Allison DuBois (born January 24, 1972) is a controversial research medium who claims to have psychic abilities with which she can communicate with the dead. ... Patricia T. Arquette (born April 8, 1968) is an Emmy Award-winning and Golden Globe Award-nominated American actress. ... Jake Weber (born March 19, 1964) is a British actor. ...


The real challenge is convincing her boss, D.A. Devalos (Miguel Sandoval) -- and the other doubters in the criminal justice system -- that her psychic abilities can give them the upper hand when it comes to solving violent and horrifying crimes, whose mysteries often reside with those who lie beyond the grave. Information on certain people or crimes come to her in dreams or visions in cryptic forms, and never really mean what they seem to. Miguel Sandoval (born November 16, 1951) is an American film and television actor. ...


All of her daughters appear to have inherited their mother's gift, with Ariel (Sofia Vassilieva) and Bridgette (Maria Lark) also having visions or dreams, which usually occur when their mother is in a bind in searching for answers to her own dreams. In Season 3, Allison's youngest daughter, Marie (Madison and Miranda Carabello), is also shown to be paranormally inclined. Currently, her only ability is to watch a premium TV channel that the family does not subscribe to. Bridgette never appears to be bothered by her abilities, while Ariel usually has a harder time trying to cope with a gift she knows very little about. Sofia Vassilieva (October 22, 1992 - )is an actress originally from Mineapolis, Minnesota. ... Maria Lark as Bridget Dubois Maria Lark (born 1997) is an American television actress. ... Madison and Miranda Carabello share the role of youngest daughter Marie on Medium. ...


Allison's younger half brother, Michael "Lucky", has the family gift too, but doesn't like to acknowledge it much, since it always seems to bring him trouble.


Allison is often accompanied by a local Arizona cop, and friend to Manuel Devalos, Det. Lee Scanlon (David Cubitt), who at first did not believe that she had a "gift". Allison often bends the rules of the law when she is determined to stop a crime about which she's had a vision from happening. David Cubitt (born March 18, 1965) is a British television actor. ...


Allison has also helped or been helped by Captain Kenneth Push of the Texas Rangers (Arliss Howard). He is the first law-enforcement person Allison revealed her gift to. Arliss Howard (born Leslie Richard Howard on October 18, 1954 in Independence, Missouri) is an American actor, writer and film director, best known for his roles in Full Metal Jacket and Ruby, and for directing the film Big Bad Love (starring his wife Debra Winger). ...
