The Mentalist > The Mentalist Review: Psychotic Soulmates > Comments Page 4
If you've watched the show from the beginning (which it seems many commenting haven't) you'd know that Jane made serious money as a so-called psychic. He has a palatial home in Malibu where his wife and daughter were killed and he left Red John's bloody smiley face on the bedroom wall. They've never said he sold the place so if he still owns it, it must be worth millions. He does drive and likes vintage cars since we frequently see his Citroen. So it isn't a stretch to think he has a vintage car collection. So Jane was most likely having fun with the poker game and making some quick cash rather than taking the time to sell something or mortgage his Malibu mansion.
Overall I enjoyed the premiere and whether Carter was Red John or not, I like that the idea of Red John will continue to haunt Jane.
I thought it was a wonderful episode. I hope Grace gets come help before she explodes. I don't think Jane still has the house in Malibu. I think Bertram looks guilty of something. That wife was horrible. I wonder who she was calling when she was looking for what the key belonged to? I can't wait for the further adventures of the team.
It was a much better first episode than Castle!
I assumed Lisbon was non-judgemental and not herself due to the painkillers she was taking--even her eyes and expresion were absolute 'dead'. Patrick's home may be in Malibu and we know of the Citron, I assumed he flat lied and was running a con in order to 'buy-in' to the poker game.
So basic these is the new Monk
it was okay but yeah they need to wrap up this RED JOHN thing. is the show far fetched YES
Didn't like it. What's with everyone getting away with murder on these shows and then him not being Red John and Patrick knowing it, is just too much. I don't know if I'll continue watching it with this story line. Enough is enough.
Honestly, last night's show was one the worst pieces of TV writing that I have seen in a long time. How many things are wrong here, well first off they make a big deal out the whole department being suspended, basically making it impossible to continue their investigation, yet time after time they get security videos, personal effects and whatnot with almost no effort. They even break into an apartment without a warrant and suffer no consequences. Obviously California is a conceal and carry state since all the suspended officers are still carrying guns. Lisbon must be really possessive of her new Volt; despite the fact that she's nursing an arm wound, and is on pain killers, she won't let anyone else drive the car! Timothy Carter's wife is downright weird, I cannot for the life of me see her inviting Patrick into her home and giving him tea unless it was poisoned. And then there's the ending. No I'm not talking about Jane getting off scott free, while implausible it's possible, wha
Think logically for a minute: Jane doesn't drive. Why on Earth would he have a fleet of vintage cars? I agree with Klaus, I think Jane was lying about the cars.
As for the revival of Red John, I was so annoyed at them when they said that Red John was still alive. They already dragged it out for three seasons, it's time for this arc to end. They're just beating a dead horse now. Let Jane's character have the chance to grow past this.
As long as the writers of this show allow Simon Baker to keep his luxurious, curly blond hair, I could care less about a weak plot line! That dude has one of the greatest "manes" of anyone on TV! How can you not love the guy in or out of prison?!
I was thinking it was more ridiculous that the judge had to acquittal Jane from a first degree murder. And why wouldn't the DA retrial or appeal the case?
Actually Klaus, Patricks home IS in Malibu, and we know he owns at least 1 vintage car (his Citroen) so there's nothing to suggest he doesn't have more.
Great review, aside from one minor detail. The part about the cars and Malibu home, the explanation isn't that it was more fun, he was lying about them, hence the part where he has a joke at their expense, saying he'd be stupid to lie as they'd probably kill him.
