What's the story?

PSYCHIC MATCHMAKER is a reality series featuring relationship expert and psychic Deborah Graham as she syncs up with people's psychic energy to help them find love. The South Floridian talks to her clients and provides psychic readings to help them be more open-minded about the kind of people they're looking for and to be more confident in their ability to find love. After ascertaining the kind of energy a client's potential mate must have to make a good match, she attempts to arrange a date for him or her with the help of her "date-a-base." After they meet, she checks in and reevaluates her client's aura. Throughout it all, Graham's husband George and her daughters, Jessica and Scarlet, are both impressed and slightly embarrassed by her life's work.  

Is it any good?

The gregarious Graham claims to combine her psychic abilities ability with her matchmaking skills to try to partner up people who are looking for serious relationships. But most of her energy is spent talking to friends and family who know single people and doing readings on random strangers in hopes of finding people who might be potential mates. 

Regardless of your beliefs about the paranormal, you may find yourself questioning some of the "covert" information she discovers during her clients' readings, such as their jobs or whether they have pets, that can readily be found online or surmised by cold reading techniques. Still, even if you don't believe in her psychic abilities, you'll find that Graham's heart seems to be in the right place. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about matchmaking. Did you know that some cultures still rely on matchmakers to bring couples together? How successful do you think matchmaking is in the United States? 

  • How does the media portray people who claim to have psychic powers? Do you really think they talk to the dead or read people's energy? Or are they just good at interpreting people's body language and other details?
