Looking forward to seeing Simon Baker back this fall in his new show. Hope his show makes it. He is looking real good ladies. Any Simon Baker fans out there?

Default The Mentalist

"The Mentalist" is being pushed a lot in the UK at the moment ( about to start soon) and I was wondering whether it is worthwhile watching ?
Any comments welcome.

I love it. It's clever, and of course the main character isn't hard to look at!

Thanks. I think he is Australian ( Tasmania I believe) ! I will try to catch it. The previews show you very little so it is hard to make up your mind.

Ive been watching the show, its good, sort of a take on USA's "Psych" except here they know he used to con people, and he's just using "reading people" The details are good to pick up on, if you like that kind of thing. The cases so far are varied enough that it hasn't gotten redone. Probably last 2 maybe 3 seasons.

The US version is "based" on the UK's version of "The Mentalist" so I don't know if they would be exactly the same but I love the US version! Simon Baker is not too hard to look at either. I find the show witty and well written. Not too much violence and I love how the team of agents interact with each other. I give it two thumbs up.

It seems Simon Baker is very popular !

If it's a bit off-beat I will probably like it.

I saw the opening episode and it was a good show. I just never took time to watch any more.

Well! I decided to search on the actor's name, because I've seen him on The Mentalist, to see if anyone can give me a summary on The Guardian, how decent a show it might be, and the gist of the show...what makes it move...

And here's a thread that mentions both shows.
