Trivia

This is the first episode of the series to not feature all five cast members. This is due to the fact that the episode takes place before Van Pelt comes onto the team. Amanda Righetti is the only main cast member to not appear in every episode as of the airing of "Red, White, and Blue." See more »

A visit to Patrick Jane's pre-CBI days
28 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The series takes a trip back in time to Patrick Jane's introduction to the CBI unit. Filmed in dark somewhat grainy tones, this surreal approach effectively showcases an initial rough draft of Patrick Jane who evolves to define his trademark observational skills that become the essence of the series. What's very interesting is that the story line and approach to solving the crime in this episode are augmented by the effective use of a pseudo-courtroom style approach that demonstrates the skills of the shows beloved protagonist who never ceases to amaze both the characters and the audience. My hat off to Simon Baker for a fine production.
