Here are your Mentalist Top Five Moments! [Read more...]

THE MENTALIST Redux: Our Top 5 Moments From “Nothing But Blue Skies”


The Mentalist is back! Though it’s bittersweet, since it’s the last season. And a short one at that. But I’m going to enjoy the heck out of it until the very last episode.

This week’s episode starts off with a bang, and a victim who doesn’t know the rules, which is that if someone has already shot you and is coming toward you with a gun, the last thing you want to do is say, “I know you.” Twice. Here are your top five Mentalist moments! [Read more...]
