Well ... up to the 6th and a half season a really good show I enjoyed watching. Since Red John ain't no more, not so much. They should have ended it there, in my opinion. Nevertheless, I still would recommend the show to anyone who's asking!

I've already watched this entire show, but I barely remember any of it. Which is why I am re-watching it, in a sense. Anyway, I'm currently watching season two and almost finished with it as well. The Mentalist is definitely one of my favorite shows of all time. There are some moments in which perfectionists immediately bash this show for, even though it's simply that. A show. If you're looking for an entertaining show to watch, I recommend this. I personally love it, although we all have our different opinions about things.

I really liked the show. I saw some episodes on TV and did not see every episode. Now, after it is finished and every episode is on Netflix I binged it which was a nice thing for me. If you think about watching this show please keep in mind, that is not designed for binge watching. The meta plot of Red John is sometimes forgotten and after the Red John case is solved there are only small meta plots. The show lives and dies with Jane and his relationship to Lispon. [spoiler]I do not know if the marriage was a great idea at the end. Yes, Jane finally is happy again. Yes, Lispon is happy as well. But did they really need to marry?[/spoiler] Kimbel Cho is a wonderful sidekick to the show. I wished that he had gained more attention by the script writers as he is funny as hell the way he is saying things, not what he i saying. In the end I can give a solid 5/7 to the show and can recommend it to everyone who likes a nice crime series with a character your would punch if you meet him but love to watch on the screen.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
