Ken Woodruff was my favorite Mentalist writer during season one. He wrote the great "Miss Red," as well as "The Thin Red Line." He only co-wrote the episode with the clowns during season two, but on his own, he wrote the Scooby Doo-esque "Red Scare" and last night's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," whose ending was lifted from "Prescription: Murder." If anything, Erika Green Stafford's scripts are just as good as they were during season one, but Woodruff has really downhill in my eyes.
I've watched Columbo. I'm a fan of Columbo. You, Mr. Jane, are no Columbo.
