The Mentalist s7 ep 5

A nicely unsettling start takes us into a Columbo-style episode where a restless Jane and amused Lisbon investigate a high-ranking army type they suspect has killed his wife. Like the rest of this entirely-too-relaxed final season (so far, at any rate), it doesn’t come anywhere near the best the show can do, but it’s entertaining in an uncomplicated, wallpaper tv kind of way. Except for Vega who, now that she has Cho back on side, has swapped last week’s cloying humility and clinginess for an equally annoying blend of smart-alec and sassypants know-it-all. Argh.

    I quite liked it. And I like Vega, although I don’t think Wylie is man enough for her.

    I quite liked it too, but would put it no higher than that. The show is really coasting just now.

    We may have to agree to disagree on Vega. That “Curiosity killed the cat!” comment…. Cheeky little madam. Just as well there was nothing in my hand at the time or I’d have thrown it at my poor tv.
