Re: When did the Mentalist become the Blacklist
I got a Criminal Minds vibe from the reboot, with them traveling the country to solve difficult crimes and then jetting back to their base. But I can see where you're coming from with the Blacklist connection, even if it seems to be more White Collar (like Psych, another USA show, natch).
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
