Mentalist season 5

Cheeseburger telly. Nothing complex or revolutionary but it does the job. Like CSI the mentalist is a show that's fun to watch mainly because its undemanding.
The continuing hunt for Red John as the overarching plot is still interesting, but unless he turns out to be some superhuman monster with heat vision and claws for fingers I suspect the final revelation will have a hard time matching the build up. Nontheless if your after something to marathon that will pass the time entertainingly then you could do far worse than giving the mentalist a whirl.

Just finished season 3 of the X Files and it's ended on a cliffhanger, I haven't bought season 4 yet so it looks like I'll be taking a trip to CEX on my day off tomorrow to go buy it.
I still have no idea what season I stopped watching it at when it was originally aired, so it really is like watching for the first time all over again, it's fair to say I'm well and truly hooked anyway

I have bad news for you Rik... they all end on a cliffhanger!

Season 4 (for me) is when the show started to noticeably go downhill, and anything after is pretty mediocre. There is the odd stand-out episode here and there throughout seasons 5-8, but that is about it. The final season (9) is pretty terrible and the ending feels very rushed and leaves a lot of questions still unanswered. Plus the John Doggett character played by Robert Patrick is just terrible writing, but you can tell they were almost going for a re-invention of the show with Scully becoming Mulder and Doggett being like old school Scully in a lot of ways.

Still, all that said I'd take ANY season of the X-Files over what passes for a TV show these days.

Just started series 4. I never normally watch TV series but something about this really appeals to me.

Great stuff.

I was wondering if you'd come across Rudy. The knob jokes went into super overdrive when he came on board.
