Anyone watch this show? I'm starting to get really into it. At first, just seeing a couple ads, I was like 'just another cop show' but I really like it now.
I like all the main agents for different reasons and I especially like the main character Patrick Jane. He's smart, quirky...good looking. What's not to love? Sometimes though I do compare him to Bobby G. but come on, its hard not to when PJ does the occasional magic trick.
It's a good show, especially the creepy-tragic storyline of Red John. I saw episodes last year and all of this year so far. I only wish I could see S1 and the rest of S2. I think I'll need to rent them one of these days...

I am kind of outing myself here to be a TV-Junkie somehow, but indeed Mentalist is a regular. First of all, hubby likes it too (while he somehow never got the hang of LOCI, *sigh*).
I first got attracted, even before the tragic Red-John-Story, by the Saulus-to-Paulus-storyline: a former medium now completely disillusioned and with a nothing-to-loose-attitude towards his job and his life. The result is such a nasty approach towards both perps and the team at times; I just love it.
And the team is simply adorable. I loved how careful they handled the change of the captain. Yes, it can be done with a decent story and a decent treatment of the character. .....
