  • The team investigate jury tampering and contract killers

    The team investigate jury tampering and contract killers, while Cho and Abbott try to find the missing teenager from last week. Lisbon is torn between her feelings for boyfriend vs her feelings for Patrick
  • not memorable, and boring

    a boring episode
  • a interesting complex show going down

    with RJ or not, the cast isn't interesting at all. I miss the cbi, the team, the cases were intersting. now predecible, boring, to say the least
  • Il Tavolo Bianco

    The fake grand jury was a little bit over the top, and it definitely was a "con" that Jane refused to admit. Okay episode, but nothing too memorable or original.
  • It's a love story about a woman who has to choose between two men !

    Pretty much describes Casablanca and Lisbon, to a "T".

    En route to this poser for Lisbon was an excellent episode with Jabe at his sneaky best, ensnaring the bad guy.

    If there was a niggle I had, it was that the "Trojan" coat was a shade over the top complicated for what it achieved. A simple hand off with an envelope stuffed with cash and a name would have done the same.

    However, the tension between Jane and Lisbon was what it was all about this week and I suspect for more than the next two final weeks as CBS has announced the renewal of The Mentalist for a 7th series, albeit without details of number of episodes, etc.

    The back case continued Cho's ongoing mission to recover the missing sister and uncovering the organ harvesting ring was chilling.

    I'm now looking forward even more to the last two episodes of season 6, although much more lip locking between Lisbon and Pike will make me throw up.

    Roll on series 7.moreless
