The Mentalist used to be one of my favorite shows on TV, a great refreshing take on the procedural, but it has fallen off a bit in my book. Still, you can turn on CBS on Thursday at 10 and find a fun show from time to time and this was one of those solid episodes. Seeing Patrick Jane face the "expert" was a nice little matchup, but I did not like how she refreshed the Grace Van Pelt and Wayne Rigsby relationship. They did a good job of burying that, and it should only be reexplored 2-3 years down the road, not right away.
Still, that's a small little flaw. This episode was funny, it was interesting to follow. It gets two thumbs up from me.
