LATEST THEORIES

Last year this site was on fire.........now it's a ghost town I'm fuckin speechless Ps: I'm the biggest fan of Batman But fuck that show. I hope it tanks ...........a Batmanless tv show called Gotham is about as entertaining as a Red Johnless tv show called The Mentalist. All they had to do to save the season was At the end Lisbon finds Pike murdered with a smiley face drawn in blood on the wall. That's all they had to do to save and make the season Even bored fat old housewives couldn't have liked that bullshit murder of the week finale My hope turned to anger Fuck this That finale was a fuckin insult THERE'S NO FUCKIN WAY MCALLISTER IS RED JOHN ..............………they picked his name out of a fuckin hat. Go watch the second episode of the first season and tell me they planned the hillbilly sheriff would be this legendary master criminal serial killer Red John McAllister was a RJ accomplice at best..........................................even if they bring back RJ next season it's too late. I don't give a fuck After what I went through with the lady season with all the bullshit

Do you remember about this time last year waiting for the new season of The Mentalist Red John: The Last Chapter. The height of my Mentalist fandom. I was more excited to watch the Mentalist than I was Sons of Anarchy or Walling Dead cause I thought all the hours of dissecting the Red John mystery were going to pay off in a satisfying reveal that would thrill me and make The Mentalist one of the best shows in tv history instead they sloppily resolve the RJ saga in 6 episodes and then completely change up the show focusing on JISBON??? Making it the worst season of the Mentalist and one of the biggest fuck ups in tv history .…what a fuckin joke I used to visit this site hourly posting theories but after that god awful finale I haven't waisted one minute thinking about this now piece of shit show I will not watch the last season cause who gives a fuck about a Red John-less Mentalist. I might as well watch Bones or Castle shame on you Bruno Heller

ello you! 
So how can you believe that the plot of mentalist's over? 
Big bluff in interviews for the series tasted better now I tell you! (Since he creates mentalisto I think he knows how to bluff) 
Each episodes are meticulously created with precise detail for us fooled almost each plot, trying to find the culprit before Janes (for me by) 
My hypothesis: 
This season we will Revelle surprises with Black combination, I think even what will be almost entirely (6-7) episodes on the BA, to finish with Janes saves lisbon RJ hands by killing ... 
But this season will be filled with Jisbon! 

(If you have a little time mentalist troll) (I warn the video is not funny ...) (but I support it's something!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=td2-J7ptLXE&list=UUIHDzqFbyxJWTyVMovSdhOA

i watched an episode of CSI once.  a bus was travelling and people died.  at the end of the episode the killer turned out to be a gas station mechanic at a stop the bus made.  the dude was in a screenshot for about 2 seconds and besides that was pretty much obsolete.  they spent 55 minutes of the show chasing top suspects, on for the big reveal to be a loser who made basically a cameo that didn't even produce a good reason or storyline.


i wonder if heller watched this episode.



.....why stiles btw.....no real reason, just that next to PJ, he is the only other truly dynamic character the show ever had.

Hi guys! :)
 
Looking back, I appreciate everyone's theories, no matter how crazy they sounded, at least they have thought about the show and gave it some thought! 

I still think the Partridge theories were the best, I think the writers and Bruno Heller made a huge mistake when they didn't even consider him to be RJ..My heart always said Partridge was the killer.

But anyway, well done to everyone who has come up with theories, you guys gave it more thought than the people who worked on the show! 

Which episodes did you guys like the best? I liked the one with crazy Rebecca killing Bosco and his team,  and the one with the blinking red light. ( James Panzer). And also every episode with Bret Stiles in it! :) What about you?

Have a lovely week! :)

I figured we can get some more cool theories goin on this site. I'll start with something most don't seem to think about. When it came to using the voice as a clue to who Red John was, it should have been obvious that it was a terrible thing to focus on. Which was why McAllister used the voice at the church scene. It was Heller's way of giving everyone who used the voice as a clue the big middle finger. So many of us focused so much on that and were SO sure that Partridge was the culprit. Anyways, what I wanted to say about the whole "voice as a clue thing", is that there was, in fact, a second voice that most of us forgot about. Remember when they went to Mexico to try and save Renfrew before RJ got there but they failed? And we all focused on the "He is Mar" messege attempt. At the very end of that episode, that prostitute's cell phone ringed and Jane answered it listing to someone breathing and then laughing. Listen closely to that voice. Does it sound anything like the high-pitched voice? Or even McAllister's regular voice? To be perfectly honest, it sounded a lot like Minelli. I always found it odd that he suddenly had to go visit his "sick sister in Hawaii". I'm pretty sure he was setting up his trap for Renfrew.Also , on another note, I re-watched the 100th episode and when Jane was asking Minelli about the leads on the RJ case, Minelli began to look suspicious and when Jane asked if there were any suspects he immediately looked away as if something came to mind or some guilt was taking place. I also notice when Minelli looked away, Jane looked at him as if he was observing him.
Just a little something to get this site rolling again. Let me know what you guys think. If you guys are still around.

Like my username states... I AM BORED!!!!  Let's talk something!  Anything! 

So,  like someone suggested I started watching The Killing on Netflix.  HOLY MOTHER OF GOD AND EVERYTHING THAT IS SACRED THIS SHOW IS WHAT PROCEDURAL DRAMA IS ALL ABOUT AND THE MALE/ FEMALE PARTNERSHIP IS COMPLETELY BELIEVABLE, COMPLEX AND ..... HAIR RIPPING FRUSTRATING!  It also stays in the background where it belongs. 

I'm about 3 episodes into season 4 and I can only imagine where and how the writers of The Mentalist got their jobs.  How is it that these cable shows are so spectacular that they are out-doing the BIG GUNS on major networks yet no one hears about them?  Their numbers hardly even exist on the Neilson ratings and I'm lucky if I can find a friend or a co-worker who has even heard of any of these shows. 

I'm trying to decide which I should do... (or do first)

1.  Get new friends
2.  Cut the cable
3.  Get off forums
4.  Stop comparing police dramas to The Mentalist
5.  Send my writers resume to The Mentalist along with everything I think is wrong with the show and sit by the phone.
6.  Go outside and enjoy the last few days of summer because I'm gonna be bitchin' about the cold in a few weeks.

So, what have you guys been doin' all week?  ;)
