The Mentalist

With a pre-debate in full swing about whether the Presidential Debates will even be going on, it might be best to plan your TV watching accordingly. CBS is repeating Tuesday’s pilot for their new series “The Mentalist”, staring Simon Baker. And when you consider what else is on, “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”, “America’s Toughest Jobs”, and WWE’s “Smackdown”, I think it is a great time to catch something new.

CBS’ official description of “The Mentalist” pilot; “The murders of a pro golfer’s wife and her doctor are investigated in the opener of a series about a former fake psychic (Simon Baker) who now uses his gift for observing details to assist a California crime unit.” Click the pictures below to enlarge:

    I know that I’m not the first who has thought… Hey, isn’t this a crime drama version of Psyche over on USA? Hmm. C’mon, CBS, try harder.

  2. The Pit says:

    Yeah, I thought the same thing. In their defense, it is nice seeing this material in a more dramatic form. I’m a fan of “Psyche”, but they are very different shows… just based on the same core concept.

    Paul, the actress is Gail O’Grady, who has been in a lot of TV movies and TV guest spots. She was also recently in “The House That Jack Built”.

    It seems like this is a serious version of Psych, which happens to be one of my favorite shows of all time.

    It’s just a serious rip off of a good COMEDY show…

  6. The M says:

    Uh… yeah.
