Storyline

In Hangtree, Carson, jailer Walter Parsell, who aspires a detective career and studies criminology, is found on the street outside a robbed jeweler, fatally stabbed as with a prison shunt. Suspect ex-cons include the jail's top-dog, lifer Marcus Lansdale, whom Parsell singled out for transfer to a maximum security prison, as Wayne's no-good father, smuggler Steve Rigsby. Marcus's girlfriend's brother also has a record. Rigbsby calls pa's bluff he can find the killer in no time, which leads to Butch Carwin's drug ring. Patrick meanwhile searches in jail, concentrating on trustees. Written by KGF Vissers

The Mentalist episode 21 season 3 "Like a Redheaded Stepchild"
22 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I enjoy watching the Mentalist, I found it was a great show since day 1. This episode, and I thought I should point this out, I found a mistake. *SPOILER ALERT* When Jane, and Lisbon visit the college, when the woman teaches the class asks about May 31st 1979, she writes it in capitals; MAY 31st 1979, but later when they show another angle, you see it written in cursive, and not in capitals; May 31st 1979. Just thought I'd point this out. Otherwise, I found this episode very entertaining, and I usually don't find mistakes, and this interested me. I thought I should share it.
