So I know its only 2 episodes in but what do you think of The Mentalist (Channel 5 on Thursdays)? I really took to it, the plot so far seems great and the standard team dynamic with plenty of comedy in the drama. Simon Baker as Patrick Jane is the perfect cheeky main character.

So do you agree, should The Mentalist be welcomed into the fold of the established great crime dramas?

Poll to be displayed asap.

And a bit like Monk too..though mostly like Criminal Minds but on that you see all the stuff they notice sometimes you dont on The Mentalist- like when Patrick immediately knew the dead guy was gay or that the dead girls attacker wanted to rape her despite no signs of sexual assault. This kinda keeps you guessing a bit more cos you dont get all the clues.

I thought it sounded like it would be really, really good and really clever.. kind of like a house for crime in a weird way.. but it's just been disappointing so far.. [probably my own fault for thinking it would be awesome]
Too close to derek acorah and not derren brown.. if that makes sense..?

Really? i think its more Derren Brown cos unlike Acorah he's not being a psychic, it is all out in the open stuff

Woohoo :flip:

PS (avatar related) have you seen you can get Bert online? http://www.fartinghippo.com/62-jumbo-farting-hippo.html

But its such a specialised product (and so begged for by fans) that they are few and far between with high price tags.
