I am a huge Mixed Martial Arts fan so I was excited when I saw the previews for The Mentalist having an MMA episode, but they didn't even have any actual fighters appear on the show? Lame.
This was a decent enough episode, but it really got away from the fighting part pretty quickly and really made MMA look bad, which I am not surprised that a show targeted for older viewers would do.
The murderer was a bit of a surprise, but this felt more like Criminal Minds than The Mentalist. No Patrick Janeisms, nothing unique about this episode is the point I am trying to get across. Good, but not The Mentalist at all.
