Another great installment of The Mentalist tonight. Not only are the episodes getting better but the already strong ratings are climbing as well. The show is becoming a hit, something I could not have predicted based on the commercials hyping its debut.
The great thing about this show is all the red herrings they throw at us. Like tonight we had a suspect built up only for him to not be remotely involved at all. This is very realistic and helps to give the show a unique feel as opposed to other law dramas.
And of course Patrick Jane was great as usual. From the hand-raising gag to taking the iPod there were numerous gems here tonight.
