It's only TV but I like it.
It's recently come to my attention that no-one is really renting The Mentalist. Instead it seems they're choosing to clamber helplessly over copies of Mad Men and The Wire week after week whilst pulling faces at me because... it's always rented. And whilst I'm in no doubt the aforementioned series' are of a superior quality, this show is fun.
The Mentalist (aka Dexter-lite) is perfectly crafted episodic whodunnits presented with enough tension and twists to push the raging house-fire in your kitchen down your list of priorities. It's addictive, charming and entertaining. Watching it more often than you do now will probably be a good thing.
