Quotes

[last lines of the episode]
Teresa Lisbon: You wanna drive?
Patrick Jane: Ah, that's a very sweet offer. Did I really seem so sad?
Teresa Lisbon: What? I was just asking if you wanted to drive.
Patrick Jane: You don't like it when I drive. You despise it.
Teresa Lisbon: You drive way too fast.
Patrick Jane: I drive just fast enough. You hate not being the one in control... and yet you're willing to overcome your irrational fears to cheer me up. That's a beautiful thing, Lisbon. Thank you, I'd love to drive.
Teresa Lisbon: Never mind.

Enjoyable entry in the series...POSSIBLE SPOILER AHEAD...
1 February 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Baffling murders, some sharp detective work, someone committing a crime that is traced to a worker who wanted to save the reputation of a clinic from being exposed as fraudulent--and SIMON BAKER as "The Mentalist" who devises a way to make the guilty party confess.

Well done mysteries benefit from good acting from the entire cast. Simon Baker makes an attractive lead as the man who admits to having been under a psychiatrist's care when he had a nervous breakdown. He exhibits the ability to see through other people's fears and weaknesses and Baker plays the role with dexterity and an ambiguous sort of charm.

Nicely produced series with good production values and intriguing story ideas.
