Since The Mentalist has gotten out from under the cloud of Red John, I enjoy the fun of watching Jane have fun solving the crime. I would just as soon that Lisbon and her romance faded from the story line. As far as I'm concerned, she has very little charisma or chemistry. Go, stay, I really don't care.

The most satisfying episode in a long time. Everyone was at their best, from Peter and Alicia to Cary and Diane. No more pity parties; the stories focused on the main characters and they all kicked butt!
I really prefer this show to concentrate on strategy and politics and leave the office romances out. They just turn the program into a soap opera and heavens knows, we have enough of those on TV.

Correct me if I'm wrong, The voting was in a Republican primary, wasn't it? The idea that either candidate would win against even a mediocre Democratic candidate is the real fantasy here.

The only episode of NCIS I have ever deliberately skipped is the second half of the New Orleans story. Having watched the first half and been very disappointed, I didn't need to waste my time. But then I am also not a fan of the LA spin off either. To me, the chemistry of NCIS can not be duplicated.

A powerful heartbreaking episode. Since I am dealing with a sudden death in my world, it makes it all the more stunning. Mu heart was breaking throughout. They hit all the right buttons of grief, disbelief, faith and rejection of divine will. The muted responses of the major characters was so much more powerful than the histrionics of that foolish intern. All in all, a wonderful episode.

The show keeps getting darker and darker. The basic premise is so cynical and corrupt that it is really bothering me. As Olivia asks her father, "What's the point?" The real issue is not who killed whom but why everyone accepts the fact that people must die to save the republic. Olivia wants to know, and so do I: Where are the White Hats?

Not enough Reese in this episode. The 2 strong female characters are too much alike in the action scenes. Despite all the drama, I found this story disappointing-- just your average dystopian B movie.

Here's something that puzzles me. Why would Jake quit shooting after 3? Obviously he has no scruples about murder. Wouldn't it be better to leave no witnesses?

I was disappointed by this final episode. Felt it could have been so much more. The NY Times review said it so well: http://tinyurl.com/lejobbo
The detective story had been replaced by a buddy story with one buddy back to being a jolly buffoon and the other overacting in the worst way. I really felt the quality had slipped from the very high standard of the previous episodes.

With the final twist at the end I thought the show was going off in the totally new direction of an alternate universe. I would really like to see that for a change, with all the characters playing new roles. Sort of like the farm hands in the Kansas of The Wizard of Oz.
My favorite line in this week's episode came from Tom after the 3rd gun got pulled in a stand-off: "This is just getting silly."
