    Last week's bad episode must have been a fluke that slipped past when the producers weren't looking.


    I hope they continue the tradition of good eps like last night's.

    I don't want to see this show get pedestrian. Last night's was definitely not that.

    Thank goodness!
    I absolutely agree with everything you wrote, Wind Dancer. I had been a little disappointmed with some of this season's episodes, but last night was back to fun, interesting, and up to standard. The scenes between Jayne and the mafioso were fabulous, especially on the golf course. I, too, hope they keep it up.

    Sadly, last night was a repeat from last season.

    Yeah, CSI was a repeat too - but next week is supposed to be new.

    Oh no--that is sad!

    What a contrast between the two episodes!

    If the new episodes continue to be as pedestrian as they have been this season I'll conclude that the original producer is no longer associated with the show. That's the usual culprit in this type of situation.

    I so hope that's not true and the series goes back to the way it was last year.

    I know this season is not as good as last, but I just can't put my finger on why? Is it the cases? Is it the characters? IDK - but I think the absence of the Red John thread this season is part of it.

    I think it's the humor...or lack thereof. It seems much more serious. Not as much joking around and definitely a shortage of the one-liners.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didn’t hear me call shotgun.

    I didn't realize that either....and also thought what a good episode it was... It doesn't always have to be about the star...there have been some good episodes focusing more on the 2 asst. detectives for example, very funny ones, but without getting slapstick the lighthearted tone is what attracts me to the show... and that does fit well with the heroes personna.

    The show seems flat this year. I think the chemistry between Jane and Lisbon is off, her attitude toward him is different this year, she always seems pissed off at him. Jane is also more arrogant and less likeable than last season - IMO

    Re: The Mentalist

    This week's episode was the best of this season's, so far.

    Love Cho - this show without Cho would suck big toes.

    I wonder if Jane and Lisbon are supposed to have couple chemistry, they don't - move on.

    They can't have chemistry because Jayne will be mourning his wife until he catches Red John...he won't have "closure" until then. So for now Lisbon is just a much a pal/boss with him as with the other guys. IMO, of course! We are all used to there being that sexual tension when you have a male and female lead....and here Jayne is being written and played as kind of neutered. Cute, but not on the make, not motivated by sex the way men usually are.
