  • A girl has amnesia after her friend is killed.

    Another great installment of The Mentalist tonight. Not only are the episodes getting better but the already strong ratings are climbing as well. The show is becoming a hit, something I could not have predicted based on the commercials hyping its debut.

    The great thing about this show is all the red herrings they throw at us. Like tonight we had a suspect built up only for him to not be remotely involved at all. This is very realistic and helps to give the show a unique feel as opposed to other law dramas.

    And of course Patrick Jane was great as usual. From the hand-raising gag to taking the iPod there were numerous gems here tonight.
