  • Well! That came as a surprise!

    I had stopped watching this show after a few episodes in season 1. I found it too naff and corny. I have dipped into it occasionally, and caught the end of various episodes because over here it airs on Five, before Law & Order, Law & Order SVU or Law & Order: Criminal Intent - all of which I enjoy. I watched this in this episode to pass time, and because the Radio Times (TV guide) wrote that it was the end of the Red John saga. The whole Red John thing was one of the things I had found fake, because in the episodes I watched, Jane did not convince me as a bereaved husband and father. He certainly changed my opinion in this episode. I knew there would be twists and turns - and they were excellently done, but despite having read some of the reviews, the end managed to take me by surprise. I loved it. It has encouraged me to watch next season.
