The Mentalist Review: "Bloodsport" (1/7/2011)Absolutely the worst episode ever. Perfect storm of terrible writing, directing, and acting, except for Simon Baker who manages to stay charming despite a lack of material.
Bloodsport (1/7/2011)I thought this was the worst episode of this show, and possibly any show I've seen in a long time. It was clumsily directed by someone who tried to use artistic touches but just managed to distract my attention. The pacing was so slooooow and the manufactured suspense had no pay off because everything was so predictable. Add to that a bunch of guest stars who were terrible actors. However, Simon Baker managed to salvage the episode, and all the regular actors were great. Too bad everyone else conspired to make their show suck this week.
