Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry reinforces the idea that people can communicate with the dead. Psychic readings lead to conversations about difficult or violent deaths, infidelity, addiction, relationship problems, and other mature themes. There's some occasional strong language ("crap," "damn"). It's also a promotional vehicle for Tyler Henry's services.
Is It Any Good?
This guilty-pleasure series features some emotionally compelling moments as Henry taps into celebrities' private and intimate connections with loved ones. As he explains how the process works and interprets the images shown to him during each session, he does so with a gentleness that appears both genuine and empathetic, especially when his readings conjure up memories of sad and difficult moments.
The medium's youth and easygoing demeanor make him very likable. But despite claims of being pop-culture-illiterate and unable to recognize celebrities, it's hard to believe that Tyler hasn't read, heard, or seen some of the information he reveals to them in the tabloids. Meanwhile, many of his clients are a bit too quick to fill the gaps between the few random details he shares during a reading. Nonetheless, even if you're a skeptic, the show is pretty entertaining.
