  • I don't want to be concerned, but I am...

    I started out this season thinking the "Jane" character was the strong element in the series and there was some catch-up to do with the rest of the characters. That catch-up occurred and for one brief shining moment that was known as mid season, all was right with the series.
    But there has been a slow, inexorable slide, in the stories but also in the main character until, with this episode, I am starting to find him...well...annoying!
    And I am really surprised.
    What happened to the character of understated tactics and presentation? What happened to the quiet reliance on his past experiences as the means to bring his gift to bear on his present work? "Jane" is in danger of becoming obnoxious and spoiled and unpleasant to watch.
    I hope the early success and the hype about the sexiest man thing, etc., hasn't fatally detracted from a series that was...could still be...about substance. Reign it in CBS...
