Vanity: what is it with the Mentalist?

Posted on 04/20/2014 7:21:23 PM PDT by discipler

What is it with the Mentalist show two weeks in a row targeting Texas? Anyone else notice this? Last week it was the death penalty and this week it's an all male country club, also sprinkling in lesbianism. CBS

Like almost all shows, there’s a lib bias in them….especially cop shows. Even crept in Burn Notice and some other shows where the heros were clearly not libs…..or not believable as libs.

This season the show moved their main characters to Austin from Sacramento.

I kind of lost interest when they killed off Emmanuelle Chriqui.

Love the female homosexuality that was brought up (sarc).

I’m so sick of this garbage. I turned it off at that point. Catching up on FR instead.

I quit watching several seasons ago when the Red John plot line got so ridiculous (to me).

Have not watched it for a couple years now. Once a good show, a stale obsession of plots with a villain called Red John got boring. For all I know they may still be chasing that guy.

“Turn” on AMC has been great. Being a history based drama they’ve obviously taken some artistic license but the history in the background and many of the characters were real people.

I enjoyed the "Mentalist," but they did run the Red John thing into the ground. I thought the show "Life" was superior, which barely lasted two seasons.

An interesting thing about "Life," they knew they were going to be cancelled, so they wrapped up the continuing storyline in the last episode.

You've got that right. I stopped watching Law and Order because if a suspect was wearing a cross, he/she almost always turned out to be the guilty person.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s like Law & Order Criminal Intent where 90% of the perps are white males and the other 10% are white females.

The only time I saw someone that was black accused (Whoopie Goldberg), she, in the end, outsmarted the white man and we never saw what happened unless there was a sequel.

Not that they aren’t biased or anything.

I started watching one episode when it had about five minutes left. The Mentalist was accusing some slight female of being guilty of whatever crimes were committed during that episode. The slight woman knocked him down and then started kicking him as the uh hero, despite looking considerably bigger and stronger than the woman, folded into a fetal position on the floor. That was the last time I watched any part of that show.

Bobby Goren was an outstanding character, but the show's very success caused the backstory to get more and more unbelievable as the writers had to come up with new episodes, i.e., Bobby's real father being a serial killer, Bobby's mentor being a murderer, Bobby's mentor's daughter being a murderer, etc.

That happens with successful shows. X-Files another example.

NCIS dropping some of the same stuff. Hollywood is an ARM of the White House agenda. Can’t wait to see how they come out in support of the Xmen Director is the pedophile accusations are true.

I attempted to watch one episode of the Mentalist. The acting was so bad, and ALL the actors were way too “pretty”...just couldn’t stomach it. Little “real life” about it at all.

I’m watching the end of Mad Men - in which there isn’t one likable character. But I watch anyway. Really unhappy that Psyche is over!!!! I LOVED that show.

Other than that Midsomer Murders on Netflix is a welcome relief from the usual crap.

As soon as I see/hear that blatant lefty bias I turn off the show and never return. Have done that a few times. Feels good!

The 115 lb woman (usually Scarlet Johansson) taking out the 250# 6-5 guy is a Hollywood staple.

Was necessary to advance the leftist cause of women in combat, but otherwise has no reason for how ridiculous it looks.

Good show. Not to worry....you have about 3 episodes left and then it is cancelled. It won’t see a 7th season. Six season is pretty good though now a days.

Mad Men was slow this week,previews for next week look much more interesting. I’ve been doing marathon sessions of Foyle’s War on Netflix. Just finished a marathon session of Dexter. There’s some great TV out there.

CBS. You just answered your own question.

CBS is the one network I watch most. Best shows around. Tell me what show is even partially as family oriented as Blue Bloods.....I HATE when people bash CBS but let NBC which is a trash network get away with murder......you guys have a biased against wholesome shows.....the only network that gives Blue Bloods, Elementary, NCIS, NCIS LA, Survivor, Amazing Race, Hawaii 5-0. I never understand the hatred for all the Family shows on CBS. Bash ABC if you must, but leave CBS alone.

I’ve not heard of Dexter.

Discovered some talk on a forum that Don Draper will eventually kill himself. One of the reasons is that would explain the opening graphics...with him falling down past the ads. But there were a lot of other reasons...including use of oranges. Apparently oranges are a literary precursor of death. I never knew that. I thought the fact that the door to the terrace in NY was stuck open was perhaps a hint of things to come...and the fact that he was drawn out there despite the cold. Oh and the woman on the airplane...whose husband died of drink ...a maybe sign for DD and his future.

Anyway...I thought it was interesting.

I got hooked on Dexter, but the finale episode just didn’t ring true. It was very disappointing, as if they were leaving open the possibility of a movie later.

I don’t watch much (any) prime time network shows. but even though I’ve never seen two seconds of the show, I can bet any court room scenes never had a white, Christian male judge.
(on second thought, that bet is too easy).

It’s easier to understand a fictional character being weighed down by living a lie than it is to watch someone we know is hiding his past and doesn’t seem to care....you know who I mean. :-)
