Default CBS- The Mentalist

New show on CBS this fall called, The Mentalist. Saw a bunch of promos on CBS Sunday during football. Looks pretty cool, should be a good new fall series. I love those detective genre shows, but this one looks like it should be really creative and a lot of fun to watch.

Hmm, haven't heard of it, but I too am looking forward to fall TV. Especially Dexter on Showtime, I'm addicted!

Meh, looks like just another CBS crime drama. Caught the first episode of Fringe which was pretty solid. It has kind of a X-Files vibe to it.

Haven't seen the promos for this one either.

I did, however, see the Fringe & you're right, Doublee, it's got a good plot line & a nice X-Files feel & appeal.

I saw a couple of promos for it during the Pats/Jets game on Sunday and from what I gather the basic premise is this guy who solves crimes who supposedly has like ESP or uses some kind of psychic powers to uncover key clues.

It did not look like anything I could get into personally.

Its kind of like Psyche on USA from what i can see. He just says he notices things that other people usually dont, not a psychic.

Here's the promo for the people who hadn't seen it yet.

The Mentalist Promo.


Yea- I think the idea of the show is that this detective (Simone Baker) is just awesome at his job and is able to see things that others aren't smart enough to pick up on. Almost like an outside the box thinker. As long as the writing on the show is strong and is able to come up with stuff that is realistic, I think it could be a cool new show.
