    A very slow moving episode of The Mentalist tonight; very slow moving. If this episode was in a race against a snail, the snail would win.

    I watched tonight's episode with my mom who was watching The Mentalist for the first time, and it is safe to say that she probably won't be tuning in next week (she fell asleep during the show.)

    Patrick Jane had a few funny moments, but the story just felt like it could have been told in 3 minutes and the writers were really reaching to make this last for an hour.

    I am still a huge fan of this show and am glad that it's impostor Lie to Me is done, but this was not a great installment.
