Re: The Mentalist-Best & Most Underrated of the Police Procedurals
TV/Movie psychiatry could have severely mentally ill people not just coping but triumphing over the rest of humanity. So Jane's skills by that wretched standard could fit with dissociative identity disorder/multiple personality. But nothing could explain how his henchmen know when to play along.
Bad writing can explain anything it needs to. That is what pushed me away from the show being must-watch and into "if I catch it" territory.
"There is no reason why good cannot triumph as often as evil. The triumph of anything is a matter of organization. If there are such things as angels, I hope that they are organized along the lines of the Maffia." - Winston Niles Rumfoord.
