Such a blatant ripoff of Psych I won't even bother watching it.

OK, so the plot was a bit predictable, but Simon was terrific. This doesn't have the slapstick feel of Psych at all in my opinion. It is much more similar to Sherlock Holmes. I like it and I really like Simon Baker. I wish him well and hope this is the break he deserves.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Simon Baker! He was great in The Guardian and he's AWESOME in The Mentalist! I missed Smith, when it was on?? But had I known about it I would have watched it. I REALLY hope that CBS isn't stupid enough to cancel this show and if they do, Simon Baker needs to bail on them and head for the movies!!! Go Simon!

I LOVE Simon Baker in The Mentalist, one of the best shows i've seen in a long time. I really hope we get a second series.
