Apparently they have finally resolved the Red John story line that has been dogging The Mentalist since it went on the air. Initially, the story was quite compelling and gave a nixe unity to the ongoing story of Patrick Jane. Then, a while back it started to get tedious andsurreal. In fact, it got so bad that I actually stopped watching. Now that Red John is sorted, the series can now move on and get out of the ever deeper mire it got stuck in. Indeed, it might even be time for me to chexk out the series again.
