Predictable trick and case especially if you're a loyal worshiper of the show, BUT a great start for a unique season.
CBI vs FBI battle, high intensity Lisbon which we never seen before (excellent job on Robin who stepped up her acting, it looks really natural) that's new and make sense to me especially after what she's been through since last finale.
Lisbon perfectly portrayed her character as Jane's best friend in a unique and interesting way (unlike any other shows, believe me I watched tons of show). And with Jane x Lisbon relationship escalating to a different level, this is new and interesting to watch. Also Jane calling her 'boss' it's really cute, something different. The Mentalist has the most complex character in television history I believed that, and right now we are in the heart of it. And overall the crimson ticket shows the mentalist from a different angle. I feel different emotions watching this episode. Great script as usual. "Its sort of general purpose apology, use it for your top issues" best line of the eps.

The Mentalist is the best show on TV. Awesome characters that all seem to mesh. I love the tease of Jane and Lisbon's relationship. I do hope it doesn't get serious though because the season would have to end and that would be terrible. Cho is quite a character but no one compares to Patrick. He's a perfect combination of whimsy, good looks, compassion and tragedy.

I just watched the rerun of last season's finale. It seems clear that the writers are starting to wind up the series. Lisbon's reaction to Jane's hitting rock bottom showed she cares for him deeply. They do love each other but right now it's more of a brother-sister love, kept from going beyond that by the Red John barrier. Jane's obsession with finding Red John is so deep I doubt he can recover a normal life if he succeeds. It's been 9 years of emotional trauma for him since starting CBI plus the five years before that, during which he was in a mental institution for a time. Logically, this can't end well. Logically there should be a "Moby Dick" type of ending, made more tragic by Jane and Lisbon realizing how much they do love each other. I hope the writers forget about logic and give us a happy ending. It's fiction - they can make it whatever they want to make it. Regardless, I LOVE this series!

This is NO spam. No registration, no viruses. Honest to God, there is a website that has hundreds of shows with ALL their episodes, as far back as 70's, that you can watch ABSOLUTELY free. copy and paste into your browser window. then click on series, choose one, choose a link(gorilla and mov.pod work best) be patient. If link does not work, try another link. If you have an older computer, google "VLC" and download and install it so you can play hi-def streams. the site is watchseries.eu And for you sports fans I found another website where you can watch ALL college, NFL, baseball, and NBA games...same deal...no registration, absolutely free. I saved not having to buy Netflix or NFL or NBA ticket. Here it is...thefirstrow.eu Enjoy!
