lesbiassparrow: (love is never wrong)
[personal profile] lesbiassparrow
Much as I enjoy the many charms of The Mentalist* I can't help feel that perhaps watching Jane be always miraculously right might pale one day; they probably need to have the inevitable episode where he is wrong with DREADFUL consequences soon just so they can get it out of the way. Also I am sort of half in love with his exasperated boss.

In other news: skating class has devolved into many things I am terrible at. Including skulling backwards, skating on one foot, and skating one foot while waving the other. I feel this is unlikely to be anything I will ever want to do but apparently it is a vital skill to learn.

* Well, in all honesty, the many charms of Simon Baker.

I went to high school with Simon Baker. Even then he was so very beautiful - natural blonde curls - stunning smile. He was in the year ahead of me.

As for the show - I don't think it is great, but I watch it for Simon.

You lucky dog! And, yes, the show isn't very good, but somehow it gets by on the considerable charm of Simon Baker and a pretty personable supporting cast.

Yes! I feel that (so far, in spite of the badness of the show) they are doing okay striking a balance between Jane being Always Right and Jane also being sort of stupid and prone to getting things, particularly things involving VIOLENCE, spectacularly wrong. He's not House. Thank goodness.

I think part of what makes it work is how astoundingly bad he is with people at times; for someone who knows how people work, he just clumps around with hobnailed boots. Sometimes it's intentional, but other times it clearly isn't.

And it's not a very good show, but I somehow always find it amazingly fun to watch. Actually, despite the fact that I am here for the Simon Baker being right hour, I really like the supporting cast a lot.

But wouldn't you say it happened already with his wife and daughter?

I'm warming up to his boss; I busted out laughing when she ran and tackled this guy to the ground on like, the first episode. She's this teeny, tiny person throwing down a huuuuuge criminal.

I hadn't thought about that. Huh. I must admit I can't remember how he got involved there - was he brought in as a psychic or did he just say something about the serial killer on his show.

I really like the boss (and all the supporting cast). I like how she looks like she is thinking about how much trouble she would get in if she shot Jane when he is being annoying. She does exasperated well.

I think it was when he was still a psychic and was talking about the Red John murders; talking to a red john victim's family?

She does do exasperated well. (Do you watch House? Reminds me of the Cuddy/House relationship.)

Waving your foot? Yeah, not a seemingly vital skill - on or off the ice.

Apparently it will teach me some vital lesson about balance. I, on the other hand, feel it just teaches me that skating on one foot while waving the other is something I should avoid.
