The Mentalist > The Mentalist Midseason Report Card: B+ > Comments Page 3
I don't think Simon Baker is capable of carrying off the lead character as they have been making him do this season. I would like to see the show go back to a more ensemble type show, cracking a case of the week, and ease up on the long term story arcs.
I am also torn between those two and Red Dawn was a joy as well. Devil's Cherry was fascinating and the Sunset one was beautiful as well as seeing Jane go out on that ledge again.. I am not a fan of the episodes that feature the other characters but I thought that the Rigsby one was better than I expected, maybe it was seeing LaRoache again and having him interact with Jane - one of my favorite guest star.
There seems to have been more interaction between Jane and Grace since she is stuck at her desk, which has been nice to see, as I like the way Jane interacts with Grace, he uses a softer tone with her. I was also disappointed with Summer's return. I didn't see the point. Loving this series though and would give it an A if I could vote.
I am almost in total agreement except for the first 2 parts in the last section. Cho and Grace are my favorite agents. Their interactions with Jane were always refreshing. The dynamics between Jane and Cho are the most underrated and underutilized. The problem with secondary characters is their storylines were not quite interesting if they had nothing to do with Jane. Sad but true. Patrick Jane as such a tortured soul is the most fascinating character on TV.
