    Just a terrible episode all around. Whenever you mix military into anything, it goes to hell. Except for Mental Gear Solid. This episode portrayed sexual harassment in the military, and how females are seen to be more compliant. As well as hierarchical issues that prevent an empathetic understanding of one's situation. I haven't been this bored since Dexter seasons 5 and 6. I felt like this was more of a dramatization of military life, rather than anything Mentalist related. Simon Baker was barely in the episode! The writers took a day off, probably. I'll even accuse the writers of cheesiness because they had Simon's character say a pushed 'thank you!' to vets. UGH
