"Here we go."
22 January 2010 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Remember when Van Pelt and Rigsby's kiss was interrupted *five* episodes ago? Remember when Jane hypnotized Rigsby and told him to do what he wanted the most, which resulted in Rigsby kissing Van Pelt three episodes ago? Surely their now mutual attraction should be addressed by the characters? Well, better play it safe for those viewers who watch only every fourth episode or for any equally stupid "reason", the writers seem to think. While on stakeout, Rigsby manages to say "Grace, I've been thinking that maybe--" before Van Pelt interrupts him because two of the suspects are in action. Oh well, maybe next week...

The case of the week is about as clever as the double meaning in the title. "Mis-read", get it? Oh, coming up with that one surely took hours! There is actually one unexpected twist at the climax, but otherwise we've seen all this before: irresistible con-woman, the protagonist (ie. Jane) meeting someone *similar* to him but of the opposite sex and opposing side of the law/nature and both clearly admiring each other, possibly even feeling attraction towards each other. But their relationship is DOOMED! Oh the agony! Will she return? Will we care? Will we the f-- Where's the innovation? This episode isn't even as funny as most episodes are. In the end Jane gets to gloat again, but that joke is starting to overstay its welcome. Even if we're supposed to see how irritating he is, asking the viewers to root for a bastard is a tall order if the show goes on for years like the makers of this are wishing. They sure need to start inventing something pretty soon.

Hey, how about some agony because of the murder of Jane's family? How come we're *never* shown that side of him even though we are reminded of it by as many episode titles referencing "red" as possible? Oh yeah, and the dice thing, Jane being able to roll whatever he wants - actually anyone being able to do that with enough practice - since "it's in the wrist"... It's possible - in theory. If you can hold the dice in *exactly* the same position and orientation in relation to the rolling surface and make the *exact* same throwing motion with the *exact* same speed and the *exact* same force with your hand, then you WILL get the exact same result. A robot can be programmed to do this. Can a human do it repeatedly? I seriously doubt it.
