THE MENTALIST Recap: “Blue Bird”


We begin with Jane and Cho driving up to what I’m assuming is a crime scene, since there’s the telltale yellow tape. They’re at Student Housing, University of South Central, Texas.

THE MENTALIST Recap: “Forest Green”


We start off…well, shoot. I’m already not liking this episode. It begins with Pike and Lisbon, with Lisbon coming down the stairs, her hair wet, clearly from a shower.

Best Ending We Didn’t See Coming: Note to Showrunners not willing to put their opus’ central couple together for fear of diluting viewer interest.

The Power of Subliminal Programming: How TV Changes Our Behavior

By: Tiffany Vogt After a recent episode of BONES, I noticed for the first time how easy it is for television to influence our personal lives.
