One of these things is not like the other

Although I do agree that there are many shows on television now that seem comparable in idea but I cannot be objective to them without looking at the whole picture. Character chemistry makes all the difference in the world. Although I have never been a psych fan I absolutely love The Mentalist. You can also compare Eleventh hour to Fringe and I have to say that I watch them both every week. Character chemistry has everything to do with the type of show it is and what people like. Take Cheech and Chong for instance; the movies would of probably not been such a success if it was Cheech and Steve. Another example is the CSI TV shows; some like Vegas and some like Miami. I for one am glad of the choices we have these days and am glad of anything that can take me away from the NEWS or boring evenings alone.

I understand what you are saying, but CSI Miami is a spinoff of itself not of something else, so that is not the same as taking from a completely different show. I am not telling people not to watch the mentalist, they can do what they want, I just would like credit to be given where it is due. Watch it, but understand that it came from Psych, and give Psych the credit and respect it is due. I do not want there to be a situation where people think the mentalist came first and Psych is a ripoff of that. So feel free to enjoy it, and I will continue to hate it and hope it fails, cause I love Psych, but just understand where it came from. Dont give it more credit then it deserves, it is a show that took the premise from psych and now its on tv. All I ask is that people are fully aware of that. If they are, they can then make their own informed decision on whether they wish to support what it is.
