CSI: CYBER is the fourth iteration of the phenomenally successful CBS franchise, co-created by Anthony Zuiker, an executive producer on the quartet under the auspices of fellow executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Debuting on Wednesday, March 4 at 10 PM, CSI: CYBER differs from other CSI series in several ways.

It’s so hard to wrap up a long-running series, be faithful to the core values of it and still satisfy fan expectations. It’s even harder when your series comes to an end quicker than you would have liked or expected.
The latter is the case of MEDIUM. It only made it through a half-season this year before CBS pulled the plug after seven years (five of those were spent on NBC, two on CBS).
This at least gave creator Glenn Gordon Caron time to craft an actual finale, rather than leaving the show on a limbo note.
MEDIUM revolves not only around the fact that Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette) is psychic, but that she has a family. For seven seasons, the audience has watched the Dubois daughters – sensitive Ariel, forthright Bridget and little Marie – grow up on camera. Likewise, actresses Sofia Vassilieva (Ariel), now eighteen, Maria Lark (Bridget), now thirteen, and identical twins Madison and Miranda Carabello (sharing the role of Marie), now eight, have spent a significant portion of their lives acting in the Dubois household. The long-running MEDIUM airs its final new episode tonight on CBS. This interview was conducted while it was […]Read On »
For seven years on MEDIUM, Allison Dubois, played by Patricia Arquette, has seen and heard dead people, an ability she’s used to help the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney’s office. Her three young daughters all share some version of her gift. The only person in the household who doesn’t have psychic qualities is husband and father Joe Dubois, played by Jake Weber. Joe may at times be bewildered, skeptical or even totally exasperated, but he is unshakably loyal and loving, attributes that have had the character rated in multiple polls as one of the best spouses on TV. MEDIUM spent five […]Read On »
