Long Island Medium
Having experienced so much life and death this year, I was naturally drawn to Long Island Medium, which is a show involving a perky Long Island mom who claims to "talk to dead people." I don't care for all of the extra detail about her life and kids but, I have to admit, the readings she does for people who've lost loved ones is kind of interesting. There's always that thing in the back of your mind that teases, "What if?" If you can stand all of the personal, extra banter involving her husband, kids, and dog, the show is kind of intriguing.
More intriguing than the Long Island Medium, though, is I Survived Beyond and Back. These are people who died. Yes, died. Like for a couple of seconds to more than a handful of minutes. And returned to tell about it. The fascinating thing is that there are consistencies in almost every story. My mother had a near-death experience when I was a little girl and I remember her story so I've always been intrigued by this.
Kind of makes you wonder.
