    He is super nice and cool. I had the pleasure of working with him on this pilot. I had to shake his hand a million times. Nicest actor I’ve met so far. Eion Bailey from once upon a time OS also very nice but very shy. Not very outgoing like David

    I have all the ghost whisperer seasons. I was so sad when I found out it wasn’t coming back. Is there any way to bring it back? And why did it cancel?

      I just finished marathoning the first 5 seasons on Netflix. It was a really great series in that it managed to convey the subtleties of paranormal activity and perception in a truly acceptable, everyday format. Time well spent, I could easily watch another five seasons.
