'The Mentalist' - 'Green Thumb': Back where we started

Sunday's (Dec. 8) episode of "The Mentalist" took the show back to its crime-solving bread and butter, and it did something else as well: It reintroduced the mischievous side of Patrick Jane.The conclusion to the Red John saga got about as dark as this show ever has -- understandable, given Jane's consuming drive to find and kill Red John. That naturally pushed aside any playful elements to the relationship between Jane and Lisbon or anyone else. But since two-plus years have now passed in the show's timeline -- and Jane is living in the most comfortable prison cell ever -- he's back to being at least a semblance of the guy he was for much of the series.The episode, titled "Green Thumb," gives Jane his first case working with the FBI, and it feels almost like a pilot episode. Abbott and the rest of the FBI team get to be exasperated at Jane's methods and... //

There's only so many circles you can go in with it, and I feel like we owe it to our audience. They've been so loyal, that you can only lead them down that road for so long. It's almost like you have to close that door so another can open -- and I think it will.Zap2it: Will solving the murder of Red John cause fans to lose interest?Robin Tunney: I don't think people watch the show because they want to know who Red John is. They watch the show because they enjoy watching Patrick Jane solve crimes in the way that he does. When the show's at its finest, it does have a sense of humor about it.It's not a gory, violent crime show, and the crimes are cerebral, obtuse, weird.... //
