      The red john plot/drama is really boring after 4 seasons. It's beyond unrealistic. The show is not developing anything except red john is UNBEATABLE cult like, more powerful than everyone else. I simply don't buy it. It's losing its entertaining value. The show also needs to develop personalities of other characters. It CAN NOT be ALL about one person. I am giving it one more shot, if it's still as disappointing, I am over and out!

      I don't know who the director was for that episode but fire him ! Every 5 minutes we had a shot of some lotery images, on a bus in front of the hotel, on the news paper, ect... It was probably to make the spectator feel smater than Jane, but it only made the story seem dull and predictable... This show deserves better.

      The series is good enough to stand on its own without the red john story! It got old by season 4 - the latest!

      I'm thinking that I'm glad the Teresa/Patrick relationship is progressing. I hope they don't drag this out for half of forever like Bones and Castle did.
