The Mentalist "Green Thumb" Review

The Mentalist in a nutshell: It's an ILLUSION (read: VISUAL LIES) you can see from miles away.

 

Dr. Linus Wagner: Everything you told me, Mr. Jane, is total fiction, isn't it?

Jane:  From the INCEPTION


What's Patrick Jane watching now?  Maybe it's the "Black List," the NBC show about a master criminal named Red who plays the FBI for fools just like Jane pulls the wool over poor FBI agent  Dennis the Menace (hey) Abbott when he devises a phony list of a blacked out "Blake List."  Or maybe Jane is watching "Road Runner" cartoons and clueless Dennis plays the role of Wylie the Coyote to Jane's Road Runner. Or was Dan Cerone playing us for fools with the impossibility the Wylie techie spent his lunch hour using satellite imagery of the New York City area and found Jane  because DHS eliminated the domestic satellite spy office in 2009? Why, that's as likely as "McAlluster" made Lorelei his sex slave. Why would he lie?  Jane gets socks but it's the Mentalist audience who gets hosed.  At least we now know Jane's "Motive" - that Tasmanian Devil is Looney Tunes.

 


The ILLUSION persists: This BLUE BIRD  is All an ILLUSION 




Scrambled Eggs:  Jane appears to be a Sherlock Holmes super-sleuth character, but in reality is a mental patient with a cracked eggshell who suffers from paranoid delusions due to feelings of extreme guilt in the deaths of his wife and child who were burned as he was (CBI = intensive burn care?)  in a horrific car accident involving a driver named Tanner when he failed to stop at a BLINKING RED LIGHT CROSSING AN INTERSECTION, hence the RJ symbol, while he was driving intoxicated  and spends his days with the remote watching TV shows, which generate his ideas for the delusional episodes. Note: Jane's eggshell blue car - a vintage 1972 Citroen DS 20 that Warner Bros., producer of "The Mentalist" for CBS, had in its inventory. It was used in the 2008 movie "Speed Racer." For "The Mentalist," the car was shipped from Germany and painted eggshell blue (it was originally red).


Burning Clues: "The Mentalist" is obsessed with fire, as in half the episodes it plays a significant plot point. Items:  Jane burns his Red John files with a bottle of booze. Out of the Frye-ing pan into the... As Kristina Frye discovered, when you get too close to Red John, you get burned.  "Tiger, Tiger burning bright, they were "Au-burned."  In the "Red Mile" episode Jane arrives at a crime scene outside Auburn, California.  Shouts from Alabama football fans of "Roll Tide" first appeared during the Alabama-Auburn Tiger IRON BOWL game in 1907. Note the Auburn football game was playing on the bedroom TV in "Desert Rose. "Curiously, a corpse was found in a burned car in "Ruby Slippers," in which Jane discovers the identity of Fifi Nix, like Jane's Phoenix, has risen from the ashes of his past life.  In "Red Dawn" Jane is given a desk next to a fire extinguisher that is there, then it's gone, then it's there again.   Fake Red John read all about it - catch the fire-y headline on the front page of the newspaper Tim Carter was reading before Jane shot him.  Red John appeared to Jane in the burn mask.  Jane: It's not my fire.

THE WILD WESTPHALL WORLD

Red John is Patrick Jane's imaginary evil twin, his "perfect symmetry" alter-ego (Jane/John) Professor Moriarty character in a Tommy Westphall" imaginary world like "St. Elsewhere's" snow globe and "Life on Mars" that is the dream state of Jane.  (NB. The fake Jane character in "Red Moon" where a corpse was found in a burned car was named Ellis Mars (El - He is Mars.) Ellis Mars: The mind is a powerful weapon. It can create reality.    Mr. Nguyen was LOST (also in the Westphall Universe) but was found in "Green Thumb."


Jane: Perhaps we can see each other again.
Lorelei: That’s not up to me.
Jane: Oh, you have no say in it?
Lorelei: None at all. It’s very "Westphall."
Jane: I don’t follow you.
Lorelei: I do what Red John tells me to do.

 "The DESERT ROSE"

Perhaps Bruno referred to a song that Sting made famous.  The lyrics will burn in your imagination and perhaps provide a clue about Patrick Jane's:

I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand
I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her seven veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems.

The Mentalist "My Blue Heaven" Review

The Mentalist in a nutshell:  It's all an ILLUSION (read: VISUAL LIES), according to the (See B.S.) script.

Dr. Linus Wagner: Everything you told me, Mr. Jane, is total fiction, isn't it?

Jane:  From the INCEPTION



   "You can judge a book by its cover."


                   "You know I'm gonna see a smiling face, a fireplace, a cozy room,
                              A little nest that nestles where the roses bloom;
                                  Just Jilly and me, and baby makes three,
                                    We're happy in my Blue Heaven."
 
Patrick Jane finds his peace of "Blue (Sky) Heaven" in a Venezuela island interrupted by FBI agent Kim Fisher from VIRGINIA who throws her Josephine Tey book, "Daughter of Time,"  in his face. FBI supervisor Abbott arrives to make Jane an offer he can't refuse - consult for the FBI or go straight to jail.  Jane gets Abbott to sign his terms of employment -- "beggars can't be choosers" - but Abbott says the script is worthless when he gets Jane back to his FBI office in Austin, Texas.

Moral of the story:  Don't believe anything these guys write.

You can judge a book by its cover:  Jane should have known Fisher was getting him to (Emily) Swallow her line about her employment dilemma.  Her Josephine Tey novel approach was a clue as Tey was a pseudonym used by Elizabeth Mackintosh, a Scottish author best known for her mystery novels.  Peter Hitchens wrote that, "Josephine Tey's clarity of mind, and her loathing of fakes and of propaganda, are like pure, cold spring water in a weary land", and "what she loves above all is to show that things are very often not what they seem to be, that we are too easily fooled, that ready acceptance of conventional wisdom is not just dangerous, but a result of laziness, incuriosity and of a resistance to reason."

Was Tom Szentgyorgyi making a statement about Jane's resistance to reason or ours?


This BLUE BIRD  is All an ILLUSION

Scrambled Eggs:  Jane appears to be a Sherlock Holmes super-sleuth character, but in reality is a mental patient with a cracked eggshell who suffers from paranoid delusions due to feelings of extreme guilt in the deaths of his wife and child who were burned as he was (CBI = intensive burn care?)  in a horrific car accident involving a driver named Tanner when he failed to stop at a BLINKING RED LIGHT CROSSING AN INTERSECTION, hence the RJ symbol, while he was driving intoxicated  and spends his days with the remote watching TV shows, which generate his ideas for the delusional episodes.

The MentaLOST "Red John" Review

The Mentalist in a nutshell: It was all an ILLUSION (read: VISUAL LIES), and Bruno and the writers were playing us Townies for pigeons...REALLY.

Bruno Heller swears Red John is REALLY dead this time. He "pinky swears" - oops, I stole that line from last night's more realistic show, "The Walking Dead".  IF Red John is REALLY dead, then somewhere Damon Lindelof is smiling as Heller's crappy ending to the "Red John" saga will make us forget how badly "LOST" ended.  It was fitting the RJ saga ended in a graveyard as it got LOST in dead-end plotlines. Perhaps Heller couldn't believe the show would be picked up for another year and the showdown with Tim Carter was his intended Red John ending.

  This BLUE BIRD  is All an ILLUSION

 IF Heller is telling the truth, that about a year ago he decided Tom McAllister (TM) was going to be Red John, then this guy has fooled lots of people in the industry because he obviously doesn't know the first thing about screenwriting. The most crucial point in TM - the Red John identity of the most powerful serial killer of all time (not counting DRAGON_STAR_-_Final[1]   after Simon Baker is finished with "The Mentalist, "DS" would make that Tasmanian Devil a movie star. ) Heller admits he had no idea who it was until a year ago. What self-respecting screenwriter would not know the ending of his story and admit he had no idea what the ending was until he got LOST in the Third Act? Are we to believe "McAlluster"  was the guy women like Lorelei were mesmerized by and the brain behind the conspiracy?  Only in Jane's DREAMS. Really.

IF this episode is not another ILLUSION - a WESTPHALL DREAM in the mind of a mental listed Jane, then Heller is a Wizard behind the curtain, huckster, a carnie who plays the Townies for pigeons, whose suspension of disbelief knew no bounds. Yeah, they'll buy the "double bomb" illusion like all the other ridiculous acts pushing the suspension of disbelief that were REALLY acts of  bad writing. I can imagine Heller and TM writers will pull a "Lindelof" and say it was really a story about character. I would agree- THEIRS. Heller and his carnie crew are pulling up stakes and heading off to another TV show that viewers would be advised to stay away.  These carnies say they want to put on a good show, but the moral of the story is all they want is your money.

The Mentalist viewer in a nutshell:

 


Really.

The MentaLOST "Great Red Dragon" Review

The Mentalist in a nutshell: It's all an ILLUSION (read: VISUAL LIES)(See.B.S.) so everyone should look twice.

 Dr. Linus Wagner: Everything you told me, Mr. Jane, is total fiction, isn't it?

Jane:  From the INCEPTION


If we believe our lyin' eyes, all seven Red John suspects have been eliminated:  Kirkland-dead,  Partridge-dead, Haffner-dead, Reede Smith-arrested and talking to the cops, McAllister-dead, Bertram-much too tall to be Red John as witnessed by RJ's blind lover Rosalind Harker, and Bret Stiles-dead.  But let's not trust our lyin' eyes.  As sure as there is a Tyger, Tyger, perhaps there are  other doubles that may provide a clue.  Consider Bob Kirkland's evil twin Michael  may be a loose thread but my money says that a Bret Stiles body double died in Jane's guest house.  All these rich and famous guys have a body double and Stiles was way too smart to put his life at risk.  As Stiles told his followers, "I'll be back."  Perhaps Red John really "Sails into the Sunset" and it's a case of "Double Indemnity."  Do you really think Bruno Heller was going to send off a great actor like Malcolm McDowell without a bigger bang?  The moral of The Mentalist is don't believe those VISUAL LIES...

This BLUE BIRD  is an ILLUSION

 


Scrambled Eggs:  Jane appears to be a Sherlock Holmes super-sleuth character, but in reality is a mental patient with a cracked eggshell who suffers from paranoid delusions due to feelings of extreme guilt in the deaths of his wife and child who were burned as he was (CBI = intensive burn care?)  in a horrific car accident involving a driver named Tanner when he failed to stop at a BLINKING RED LIGHT CROSSING AN INTERSECTION, hence the RJ symbol, while he was driving intoxicated  and spends his days with the remote watching TV shows, which generate his ideas for the delusional episodes.

The MentaLOST "Fire and Brimstone" Review

The Mentalist in a NUTSHELL: On CBS (See B.S.) this 60 minutes is all an ILLUSION (read: VISUAL LIES) that will leave us LOST and hanging.like poor Red John...Locke.

 Dr. Linus Wagner: Everything you told me, Mr. Jane, is total fiction, isn't it?
Jane:  From the INCEPTION

 According to Simon Baker, The Mentalist writers leave "easter eggs" in each episode for the fans to guess where the show is going. If you're LOST like me, it seems The Mentalist is getting increasingly LOST as the "Fire and Brimstone" episode mimics the LOST Jack and John Locke cliffhanger when the Red John showdown takes place on the Malibu Bluffs.  Consider the LIST OF RED JOHN CANDIDATES and the plan to FLASHFORWARD two years. Maybe they all died and are meeting in the afterlife. Maybe Jacob is RED JOHN. Another LOST clue may be the hanging scene witnessed by Reede Smith. Is Ken Woodruff telling us we too will be left LOST hanging like poor John Locke by all those loose threads?  Maybe Ray Haffner is pulling a prank (RYAN PARKS = RAY PRANKS) on us and he was the guy who killed PI Tinsley to trick Pa TRICK Jane to reveal the Three Dot conspiracy.  Interestingly, Bret Stiles sought asylum in the Ecuadorian Consulate like Wikileaks whistle blower Julian Assange.  Stiles has seen secrets that the rest of US have chosen not to see like this scene in "Eyes Wide Shut"  based on a Schnitzler novella called "Dream Story", the story of a rift in a marriage told with the logic of a dream. So where is the show going?  I'm thinking the end of the rainbow - "Gale Be Our Traum" (dream).   Ala LOST the Mentalist has many questions and few answers. Like LOST, The Mentalist is "Fire and Brimstone" but at the end of this rainbow only the audience gets burnt because...

The MentaLOST "Red Tattoo" Review

The Mentalist in a NUTSHELL:  It's all an ILLUSION ... (Read: VISUAL LIES)...

Dr. Linus Wagner: Everything you told me, Mr. Jane, is total fiction, isn't it?

Jane:  From the INCEPTION


In "Red Tattoo" there's another Red John clue: THREE DOTS on RJ's left shoulder. I'm betting they're RED, GREEN AND BLUE CLUES --  ROY G. BIV -- Red Roses, Oranges, Yellow Lemons, Green Thumbs, Blue Heaven, Indigo and Violet too!  Patrick Jane said Red John was slipping up at his game, making mistakes that would lead to his comeuppance.  Funny, Red John suspect Ray Haffner said the same about Patrick Jane. You don't suspect...?  Let's connect the dots: we know Red John has corrupted CBI and the rest of the government seven ways from Sunday, so why would RJ hire a Summer look-alike to spy on Cho?  Why would she need to plant a bug under his desk?  Surely, RJ must have a state-of-the-art surveillance system. And then RJ carelessly exposes himself to the newbie PI ?  I'm betting RJ knows one or THREE -  McAllister, Smith, and (gasp) Gale "Ber-traum" -of the RJ suspects has three dots on his shoulder and could be setting Jane up for his comeuppance.

This BLUE BIRD  is All an ILLUSION


Jane appears to be a Sherlock Holmes super-sleuth character, but in reality is a mental patient with a cracked eggshell who suffers from paranoid delusions due to feelings of extreme guilt in the deaths of his wife and child who were burned as he was (CBI = intensive burn care?)  in a horrific car accident involving a driver named Tanner when he failed to stop at a BLINKING RED LIGHT CROSSING AN INTERSECTION, hence the RJ symbol, while he was driving intoxicated  and spends his days with the remote watching TV shows, which generate his ideas for the delusional episodes. Note: Jane's eggshell blue car - a vintage 1972 Citroen DS 20 that Warner Bros., producer of "The Mentalist" for CBS, had in its inventory. It was used in the 2008 movie "Speed Racer." For "The Mentalist," the car was shipped from Germany and painted eggshell blue (it was originally red).


Burning Clues: "The Mentalist" is obsessed with fire, as in half the episodes it plays a significant plot point. Items:  Jane burns his Red John files with a bottle of booze. Out of the Frye-ing pan into the... As Kristina Frye discovered, when you get too close to Red John, you get burned.  "Tiger, Tiger burning bright, they were "Au-burned."  In the "Red Mile" episode Jane arrives at a crime scene outside Auburn, California.  Shouts from Alabama football fans of "Roll Tide" first appeared during the Alabama-Auburn Tiger IRON BOWL game in 1907. Note the Auburn football game was playing on the bedroom TV in "Desert Rose. "Curiously, a corpse was found in a burned car in "Ruby Slippers," in which Jane discovers the identity of Fifi Nix, like Jane's Phoenix, has risen from the ashes of his past life.  In "Red Dawn" Jane is given a desk next to a fire extinguisher that is there, then it's gone, then it's there again.   Fake Red John read all about it - catch the fire-y headline on the front page of the newspaper Tim Carter was reading before Jane shot him.  Red John appeared to Jane in the burn mask.  Jane: It's not my fire.

THE WILD WEST-PHALL WORLD

Red John is Patrick Jane's imaginary evil twin, his "perfect symmetry" alter-ego (Jane/John) Professor Moriarty character in a Tommy Westphall" imaginary world like "St. Elsewhere's" snow globe and "Life on Mars" that is the dream state of Jane.  (NB. The fake Jane character in "Red Moon" where a corpse was found in a burned car was named Ellis Mars (El - He is Mars.) 

Ellis Mars: The mind is a powerful weapon. It can create reality. 

Jane: Perhaps we can see each other again.
Lorelei: That’s not up to me.
Jane: Oh, you have no say in it?
Lorelei: None at all. It’s very "Westphall."
Jane: I don’t follow you.
Lorelei: I do what Red John tells me to do.

I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand
I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her seven veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems.

The "Mental Listed" "Red Listed " Review

The Mentalist in a NUTSHELL: It's all an ILLUSION (read: VISUAL LIES), and just because you read it on this Scott's Naysayer webpage doesn't make it not true.

 Dr. Linus Wagner: Everything you told me, Mr. Jane, is total fiction, isn't it?

Jane:  From the INCEPTION



"Don Thurtme" is "Red Listed" by the "mental listed" Pa Trick Jane in an attempt to trick Bob Kirkland of Homeland Security, who is on his own hunt for the great RED whale, but Kirkland gets hooked by FBI agent Reede Smith (fyi- blogger Richie Scalia never liked this guy.)  Jane's paranoid fantasy has officially jumped the shark now that the RJ Usual Suspects include an incredible number of law enforcement agencies including the (gasp) FBI.  If he wants to catch ROY, Jane is gonna need a bigger boat.  Jane deduces the burned face on the Marx under the bridge is a clue that Marx  was tortured,  as is Jane, who is partially guilty as he included Marx's name on the fake RJ suspect list, which Kirkland swallowed whole.

NB. Burning faces, corrupt FBI guys,  global conspiracies, somebody must have read my script 

If you find the latest twists and turns in the Red John sage beyond your imagination, try to imagine Bruno Heller's pitch to the Warner Brothers suits when he sold them on "The Mentalist."

Heller:  It's similar to "Monk" but different as each episode gets increasingly LOST by the moment.

Suits:  Oh no, don't tell me Lindelof had something to do with this.

Heller:  No, no, I'm not making this up as I go.  I have an ending in mind...or should I say, in the  Mental Listed mind.  The twist in the end is...

It's all an Illusion.

The Mentalist "Wedding in Red" Review

The Mentalist in a nutshell:  It's all an ILLUSION (read: VISUAL LIES) that little redhead girls live happily ever after in this "Charlie Brown" nightmare. (See B.S.)

 Dr. Linus Wagner: Everything you told me, Mr. Jane, is total fiction, isn't it?

Jane:  From the INCEPTION



Red-haired brides Stacey and Grace Van Pelt find their dreams in "Wedding in Red" and promise their partners to love them until death do them part...which in Grace's future may be sooner than later: cue the 21-gun salute.  One would think a murder at the Se7en Grace Winery by Charlie, a brown-haired friend of the groom,  over an expensive bible before a wedding would be a bad omen and reason enough for a bride to call off the wedding, but true love overcomes all and Grace convinces the bride to protect her dream after things fall apart.  Of course, Grace was going to marry a serial killer, which would give pause to anyone to listen to her advice.  Rigsby witnesses Grace's soulful moment and finds the courage to ask Grace to marry him. Patrick Jane solves the murder of the wedding guest by saving the day as he performs the ceremony in his Deacon Blues.


The hunt for Red John and Jane's life may have ended up on the roof of the church if Sheriff McAllister hadn't found that extension ladder and the courage to climb it and shoot Charlie "Brown."   Does this eliminate him as a Red John Suspect?    People can change and overcome their fears and illusions, right, Patrick?   Surely, Red John would not want Charlie "Brown" to eliminate his adversary.  The sheriff has some Mentalist skills himself, like picking up the aroma of the oregano of the dead pizza delivery man - "Jane: that's a leap."

So who is Lyin US?  Let's ask Dan Cerone about Red John's Motive. How does Red John pick his victims?  Why does Red John spare Lisbuns, Jane's girlfriend, but ruthlessly murders his wife and daughter?  Trying to understand the mind of a serial killer is maddening, like overlooking the plot holes that threaten the suspension of disbelief of the Mentalist audience.  The only thing that makes sense is

.. It's all an ILLUSION
