The Mentalist is one of my favourite shows of all time.

It’s not (and has never been) a perfect show. The mere premise is flawed and the writing has never been amazing. Plots are recycled. The acting is probably just above average. Patrick Jane is pretty much a gimmick; in that love it or hate it kind of way. Despite all of that, the first three seasons of the show are very good. They all follow the same pattern. Procedural episodes mixed with a few episodes central to the main plot of the show – catching a serial killer named Red John who is responsible for the murder of Jane’s wife and child. The best thing about the first three seasons – to me – is the simplicity of it all. Jane and the CBI team solve murders and occasionally there’s a break through in the Red John case. There are clues placed during the first five seasons regarding Red John’s identity, but the show went from things like, ‘he is ma-” being written in blood on a wall next to a victim to an accomplice revealing that Jane had shaken Red John’s hand. A fact that should have been made irrelevant on the basis that Jane had already come into contact with Red John before. That little clue led to the compilation of a list of suspects, leading to the basis of the final showdown between Red John and Jane. The list is the point at which I sort of realised that I kind of didn’t like the show all that much. The fifth season was more serialized than previous seasons and it honestly got really tiring to hear more and more Red John clues, because they clearly weren’t going to lead anywhere by that point.

clearly jensen ackles needs to be stopped.


If you’re a masochist like me who somehow cannot escape from Supernatural, you’ve probably seen this waste of equipment/time/energy/shittiness:

Not only does it suck, the meme is virtually dead (even though lame people are trying and failing to keep it going) and…they managed to fuck it up anyway. It’s not really supposed to look all polished and ~professional AND HAVE A FUCKING OVERHEAD SHOT THAT MAKES IT HARD FOR ME TO SEE ANYTHING or have that many people that I don’t care to look at it in it.

According to Guy Bee who’s a director/attention seeker/annoying as fuck on twitter/no one that you need to know

It was Jensen’s idea.

Which okay, so this is a guy who’s on Season L8me of Shittynatural, that he has bad judgement is a given. But then I found out that the wig in The Felicia Day 2.0 show was his idea.

I am not impressed.

In other news! That annoying hunter brat Krissy is back on the show in the next episode. You remember her. The girl from Adventures in Babysitting or what the fuck ever. She spent most of it trying to mentally undress/fuck Jensen Ackles with her eyes. I was so amused/disturbed/creeped out that I restricted my snark to one line. I look forward to hating every minute of her return.
