  • Red in Tooth and Claw

    I am glad that the Mentalist is back after another break and watching it makes me realise why I was missing it The episode unfortunately didn't give us any of the names of the suspects for Red John if that's what you was hoping for but it was a decent episode that involves a murder at a national history museum and Bertram is having his own problems at poker which is effecting everyone's job but Lisbon gets Jane to help him so he couldn't of got better help off anyone else We learn Van Pelt won't be in the next few episodes which was going to happen somewhere in the season because she is pregnant.moreless
  • I think we can all agree that the dinosaurs banter stole the show

    I definitely found this episode more enjoyable than the average filler. Even though we got essentially no useful information for the plot, we got a nice case, an interesting side story, and hilarious dialogue from Cho. It's nice to see Jane with his old theatrics, and I can't say I'm particularly sad to see Van Pelt go (personally I didn't really find her an interesting character).
  • In Tooth And Claw

    I liked the throwback to the old days of Patrick Jane, with various tricks and illusions that he pulled off on the unsuspecting invitees, but the case almost took the back seat today to those acts, and then to the card game with Lisbon.

    Still, an enjoyable episode.
