The Mentalist

Posted by Gwen |

The Mentalist is a new fall show starring Simon Baker as a detective/consultant who solves crimes using his super powers of observation.  See Simon notices things, everything.

I'm going to give it a shot but I doubt this show is going to be any good.  Curiously, I do think it will do well in the ratings, because really?  What woman isn't going to want to tune in every week to see a man who pays attention?  Add in the dash of rogue we're slated to see and I predict there will be a wave of wet panties from east to west as primetime moves across the nation.

There will also be a lot of fights picked in otherwise quiet homes.

Wow...I use to look just like him...when I had hair..and scruff....and a couple less chins...and nice clothes.

Just an FYI - he's kind of like a look-a-like of me.

Unlike Moe and Zibbs, I look nothing like Simon Baker.

My blond hair is much more ruffleable.

I don't think anyone wearing that shirt is capable of solving more important crimes: ones committed against fashion.

Mmm...yummy...


huh? whaa? did you say something?

Mathdude said...

Wait, I already watch this show - Psyched - right? Oh, hold on, this is the edgy version, not the funny one. OK, I got it now.


Alright, even if the plot is totally stolen, I have to admit it looks pretty good.

I put the line at 5.5 episodes. You want the over or the under?

Renaissance Woman said...

I'll watch...at least once! I am going to say it will make it 6 episodes.

"...wave of wet panties from east to west as primetime moves across the nation."

That cracked me up. I doubt the writing will be as good as that on the Closer, oops I mean the Cleaner, uh, which one is this?

The premise of this show sounds exactly like the show Psych on USA. I've never watched it though.

He will forever be "L.A. Confidential 's" dead gay actor in the hotel room with Ron Rifkin to me. Does that help dry some panties?

Whiskeymarie said...

I can't get past the name. "The Mentalist" is a retarded title for a TV show.

Eric said...

The Mental-est?

Like mathdude said, isn't this just Psych with a healthy dose of Monk thrown in? Probably without the good writing?

I agree about the very dumb name The Mentalist. I saw an ad for this one the other day and thought to myself what a shitty name that was.

Falwless said...

And this actor will forever be the dude in The Devil Wears Prada to me.

Darrin said...

My prediction.. Strangely similair to The series "Psych" minus the comedy! Not sure if it will fly.
