Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The Mentalist team aren’t so much pushing the envelope these days as ripping it up and assembling the pieces into a papier-mâché frog.

Forget the show we used to know. It’s as if the writers have a hunch this could be their last series (the network axe hovers over the series in the US, though it is still watched by eight million on a Sunday night) so they’re trying some things that the once rigid-but-reliable formula never allowed.

This week that means a kidnap plot, as one of the old CBI team goes through an ordeal with shades of Misery. It’s tense and twisted and involves that nasty former Red John suspect Richard Haibach. It also involves Wayne Rigsby trying to be a badass – not his natural game.
