Life is swift, craft elaborate, opportunity fleeting, trial erroneous, judgment questionable.
Thank you Stefan, I too enjoyed many episodes of the mentalist, I saw the killing of the supposed Red John and a few more, where he kills again. Do you really think that it is like the Fight Club. Maybe I should look for some more episodes. Just watching now again CSI Las Vegas in the 9th season. I'll see...
Yes, I was thinking of Fight Club as an example of such a plot. I'm not sure that the team behind The Mentalist has the guts to go for that solution, but I have a feeling that they're reserving it as one of their options.CSI Las vegas is cool. I'm delighted that now, there are so many TV shows counting on the audience having some brains. That was rarely the case in the past.
I was very impressed with your assessment of this program. I love to analyze what I watch. I recently was trying to find write ups declaring narcissism in film, so I could get a better mental picture about this disorder I am learning about. I congratulate you on an honest presentation of narcissism as a serious disorder. (Shame on Dr. Phil last week!) I am going to revisit some of this series again with a new perspective. I have to say though, as I read this blog entry, I am chagrined that I had been just as fooled by the mentalist, as I was fooled by a narcissist in my own life! Thank you for sharing this poignant review! I very much enjoyed it. :)
Thank you very much for your kind words. I know the feeling, I still hurry to see new episodes of the TV narcissist - who is, thank God, purely fictional. In real life, it gets much more complicated.
