Sorry to see the way they are going with the show. Never actually explained the mall shooting episode in the next season opener, now they are coping another shows concept. "White Collar" has been using this concept of having the character work with the FBI or be put back in prison for rest of his sentence for last 4 years. Sorry to see show go this way.
I enjoyed 6x09 more than I expected. Good writing right there. Just when everything seemed to be over, they changed everything in a horrifying yet incredibly entertaining way. This show managed to leave my jaw dropped once again :)
The identity of Red John was really disappointing. Sheriff McAllister diid not fit the character. The old, unattractive, small town sheriff being the charismatic, powerful serial killer who could get hundreds, if not thousands, of men and women to follow him and kill on his behalf is laughable. Ray Heffner or Walter Mashburn (anyone remember the attractive millionaire?) would have have been more fitting candidates. But the Red John saga must come to an end. There cannot be another Red John. Jane has already killed two Red Johns (shot one, strangled one). If he kills another one (perhaps butcher him with a knife), Jane becomes a serial killer. "Criminal Minds" would profile him as a sadistic psychopath with no remorse, and we'll see another "Dexter" emerging. We cannot have that. The reason millions of others and I watch this show is because we love Jane. He's charismatic, smart, funny, kind (remember all his casino winnings he donated to charity?) and totally likable. So, let's forget the bad decisions made by Chis Long and Bruno Heller (Simon Baker made it up with his stellar acting when he strangled Red John) and move on with the show. On the whole this is a great show and I want to see many more seasons of it.
I am so glad Jayne finally caught red john it was just dragging on. I loved the way Jayne killed him dying by Jaynes hand. What's up with Vanpelt and Rigsby? I know they are leaving the show but I though on a good note please do not write them out with a divorce or separation. Overall still my favourite show!
I wanted him to kill Red John, so I'm glad they let him do it his way--those kinds of worthless, inbred scum don't deserve a 'fair trial' no matter what the law says, and I'm very happy that Jane was the one to personally send it to hell. Nice touch on the strangulation, too, by the way, because anybody can simply shoot the bad guy--I love that they allowed Jane to do it the personal way, so the garbage he killed could see his face when it died, and that let it know that IT was the one that lost 'the importantly, it then knew, with its dying breath, that Jane had indeed 'won'. I like it when the evil heathens loose, but love it when they are forced to KNOW that they lost before they die. And at least the writers allowed us to see it fear for its life. Everyone knows the most brutal killers are usually total cowards, and always beg for mercy before doing the world a favor and dying themselves, so it was great to see Red John fear for its life. Great casting, by the way, with Xander Berkley--I love this actor, and hated seeing him play the evil thing we all wanted dead, but he's such a good actor, he played Red John's arrogance, ego, and cowardice perfectly!
only good part tonight was when Jane asked Mcallister the two questions then strangled him!!! LOVED can really ACT!!!! Just without saying a word!!!!
The BAD part was that Red John was NOT NOT NOT that tall. He had a build like Partiridge. That was a huge disspointment. The writers had Mcalllister use a phony voice like " I win you lose' and that was all that they addressed the voice part. But the BODY TYPE IS WRONG!
Glad it's over though. I am NOT NOT NOT looking forward to seeing jANE MOVE ON after seeing the previews next week like he's in Mexico or something. The producer also said from her on The Mentailist will be more on the "lighter" side. Rigsby and Van Pelt will no longer be there and they are bring in two new afraid the show is doomed. One of the BEST BEST parts of the show are the interactions with Rigsby and CHO!. I'll still watch but am no longer looking forward to Sunday night and my "favorite show"
I think next Sunday when they end the Red John storyline it will be between two surprising suspects. Either Partridge, after faking his death and replacing the body with a low level member of the Association, or it will be Kirkland's twin brother. Kirkland explained his obsession with the Red John case as an act of revenge for the death of his what if his brother WAS Red John all these years? That will explain why Kirkland was both on the trail of the killer but also a killer himself. Red John could just pose as his brother and walk around unmolested in crime scenes and government offices.
Very good episode. We are finally getting to the final reveal of Red John. I really think it is Bertram. What better way to hide then to be the head hancho. I always liked the Red John story. Has it gone to far, maybe a little. But i always liked it paired with the case by case episodes. Can't wait see what's next.
It is absurd the money I pay for satellite TV just to watch 4 shows a week - The Mentalist, Project Runway - yes I'm a PR junkie, The Big Bang Theory and 60 Minutes or Dateline. When I knew the football game on Sunday was running late, I set my DVR to record the following 2 shows, just to be sure I wouldn't miss The Mentalist. Patrick Jane's unique ability to break a case and his charismatic smile keeps me tuning in every week. But enough with Red John. Hope the writers have Jane kill off RJ in his effort to avenge his wife and daughter, so he can finally move on - let's see him date, and solve more crimes with his 'psychic' powers. Yes, I know, "there is no such thing as a psychic". Keep The Mentalist going CBS. There is so much yet waiting to happen. Any CBS had it right the first season - Tuesday nights was perfect.
Everyone enjoys a good continuing story, but this one has gone way over board. They've plugged major brains into a reputed serial killer and Jayne has made the whole thing his life's obsession. Hopefully the last episode will have cleared this up once and for all so the writers can get on with something ELSE. To be sure the resulting explosion following a gun shot was a neat ending, just so long as it brings the Red John fiasco to just that, an ending.
After the terrible debacle of last nights S06E06 being replaced with a rerun, I fear that this wonderful show is headed for cancellation. Apparently it hit an all time low for ratings. Did CBS really not see that happening by first pushing back the time because of a football game and second replacing what had been hyped up all week as the most exciting episode yet with a rerun? Not to mention the colossal mistake of moving it to Sunday.
This is the best show on . and I find that it's the only reason I turn my . on anymore. I don't hate the Red John episodes, I've always thought they were exciting, but the Red John episodes aren't why I keep coming back. I'm okay with the end of the Red John story line. It's Jane, and Jane and Lisbon, and the team that keep me coming back to the show every week.
I, for one, would feel cheated if the show was canceled after this season. I want to see the show after Red John. I want to see what happens to Jane. I want him to have new bad guys to fight, I want to see more clever ways he has of bringing them down, I want to see more of his endearing humor and I'd love to see him date? Meh... That's be interesting/weird/interesting... I'm going to go with yes, I want to see him date.
There are so many things they could explore with this show and I have been waiting for the Red John story line to end so it can. Don't cancel it please!
I'll be keeping my eyes peeled all year and if it looks like it's going to be canceled, maybe we should all pull a Jericho, or Roswell, and have all the fans send in packets of tea to show that we want more; that we don't want it to end.
Besides, it seems to me that fans would be happy to keep watching/start watching again if they'd just boot Red John. Which is happening this year. Don't let Red John's capture be the end of the show. It's not about him, it's about Jane, and his story continues after Red John dies, right? I'm crossing my fingers anyway.
1) Episode strong points - Good Johnatan Creek style room mystery.
I think that psychologist mistaken / misspeled Acrophobia for Arachnophobia. So its not fear of hight but fear of spiders so thats means Ray Haffner is Red John. He fits in many ways ar Roy/Ray Age etc as red John.
However i will still say Red John is Patrick i dont care how stupid it sounds - cause Red John thing now is stupid and i want it to end soon. And to have back old good Mentalist
OK. The story has elevated from silly to illogical. The homeland security guy is torturing people following a fake list in order to get to RJ! But this same guy did deliberately silence a key witness, a member of RJ cult, who personally knew RJ and could identify him! I am not even talking about that this kirkland character, who is supposed to be an experienced and intelligent agent, could so easily take peadophiles or drug dealers for RJ - a guy who is deeply disturbed but at the same time so well in manipulating people, organizations including even the law enforcment-. Please, just drop this RJ character and give us some good old Patrick Jane mystery solving cases. I feel only sadder and sadder each time I watch a new episode ...
Just watched RED LISTED, and have to confess that, after all these years, I'm totally bored with the Red John storyline bored with the incompetence and arrogance of the FBI, the CBI, the CIA, and whatever organization is out there NOT doing there jobs! Every last one of them, Jane and Lisbon included, are really getting on my nerves and will now wait until I read something on this site to let me know it's all over. Absolutely nothing believable and I hope it turns out that Jane himself is Red John!!
I enjoy the Mentalist becos I like the chemistry of the whole CBI team and Simon Baker brings a certain cool factor to the whole show. I can understand if one kills your entire family, one would naturally be obsessed with pursuing the killer/s. Will the Mentalist end with the capture or demise of Red John eventually or will the Mentalist go on with a newer more ruthless nemesis? I try not to be Mental about how the series would progress or end but just take it for what it's designed to do, entertain. I used to ask myself, if given a choice to pick ONLY one of the following shows to watch, which would it be? Person Of Interest, White Collar, The Blacklist, Hawaii Five-O, Geez, gotta ask Red John before he turns blue.
I love the Mentalist. I think Simon Baker plays an excellent role, very smart, sarcastic, friendly, sensitive, and with one specific purpose, to find out and kill Red John. Now this is the part that's to my opinion doesn't live up to the show. Red John is a mystery and always been a step ahead of the CBI crew. However he has talked to Patrick on the phone a few times in the past and also based on the description of the little girl in one of the episodes who shows Patrick a smiley face on her hand the CBI crew should be able to narrow down and pick Red John out of the six reminder suspects. A good twist would be that none of them is the real Red John, or this is just another accomplice of him. However I think the show would've starting to get a little bit lame. Patrick James in season three, episode 24 killed a man who's supposedly was Red John. That man sounds more like the guy on the phone who speaks with James from time to time.
Patrick Jane sadly lost his wife and daughter to a vicious beast. My heart goes out to his wife and daughter, not to "Jane". Although he is a brilliant analyst/mentalist he is just as much or more a sociopathic, ill meaning "Ass". Jane will disengage at will from assisting in solving murders, missing persons, assaults, or ANY other cases when the whim suits him. He is grossly callous towards co-workers, victims and their families and everyone else regardless of the circumstances. "Red this" "Red that". The whole world can go to "Hell in a Hand basket" when "Red John" comes up. Once again, he is a "Sociopath", a con man that mercilessly devoured ANYONE for sport.
This is the best show on TV. Simon Baker is riviting and the stories are much superior to other crime shows. As far as Red John goes, I love the continuing suspense of wondering who he is. I think that it would ruin the show if we found out his identity, unless we replaced him with another mystery man or woman. I think Red John is LaRoche but it would be a real kick in the head if it were the inscrutable Cho.
Let me first start off saying how much my brother, sister, mom, dad, grandfather, and I love this show. We watch reruns On Demand every night. The Mentalist has something different about it that other shows don't have. The cases are better, the way they solve the crimes, and the whole aspect of the show i think is great. I have been watching the Mentalist for two years now and I have seen almost every episode. One night when there was no new Mentalist On Demand my family and I decided to watch CSI. The show was good but we all agreed it wasn't like The Mentalist. We also love Red John and we sometimes get into screaming matches who we think he is lol. What I don't get is if you don't like the Red John story line than don't watch the ones with Red John in it. Don't throw out the show completely. Red John is ending this season and the whole series might be done so please don't have a great show end on a bad line because you don't like Red John. My friends and I WANT SEVEN SEASONS SO KEEP THE SHOW ALIVE. Last, but not least I love Simon Baker. He is so talented and an amazing actor and i would be sad if i didn't see him on tv.
