Yesterday, WhatCulture posted an interesting review/recap on the latest “The Mentalist” episode, 5×01 “The Crimson Ticket”. I decided to share it with you!
The Mentalist Season 5 kicks off with ‘The Crimson Ticket’, in what eventually turns out to be the week after the events of the Season 4 finale ‘The Crimson Hat’. As I did with that episode, this will be a large recap and review, something I’ll be doing for all episodes considered ‘big’ (finale, premiere etc.) or ‘important’ (such as the upcoming 100th episode). All other episodes however, will be accompanied by a regular sized review much like my piece on 4.22 ‘So Long, and Thanks For All The Red Snapper’ last season.
We start with the CBI and FBI butting heads. Tension between the two bureaus exists for a few reasons, 1. They blame each other for the botched operation that lead to the death of Luther Wainwright (Michael Rady) and ruined their chances of catching Red John, 2. They are fighting over custody of Lorelei Martins (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a Red John operative caught in said operation and 3. Jane (Simon Baker) knows via Red John himself that someone in the FBI is working for the serial killer and the FBI don’t trust Jane because, well, he’s Jane. For these reasons, Jane and the CBI spend the majority of the episode fighting (sometimes literally) in order to keep Lorelei out of the FBI and Red John’s clutches.
As we open with a shot of Jane staring intensely at Lorelei through what is presumably one-way glass, one gets the impression that poor obsessed Jane hasn’t been doing much else since her capture. Lisbon (Robin Tunney) quickly brings him around with a reminder that the FBI will not allow him to talk to her, as she is shot appearing and then disappearing into complete darkness. Ominous.
I added 3 LQ promotional images of “The Mentalist” 5×04 “Blood Feud” episode to the photo gallery. Below you’ll also find a short synopsis. Spoiler Alert!
When Rigsby’s father is found injured at a crime scene, the team must find out if it is the result of a long-standing small-town gang war, on “The Mentalist”, at a special time, Sunday, Oct. 21 (10:30-11:30 PM, ET/9:30-10:30 PM, CT/10:00-11:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. William Forsythe returns as Rigsby’s father, Steve. Pruitt Taylor Vince (“Deadwood”) returns as J.J. Laroche. Max Martini (“Revenge”) guest stars as former gang member Fletcher Moss.
Thinking back to one of Robin’s first big television appearances, I decided to watch and cap the first season of “Prison Break” in DVD quality to add them to the photo gallery. The former owner already took some screen captures, but they are in low quality and are too many. I already added the captures of the first episode, “Pilot”, to the image archive. Robin looks extremely cute as lawyer Veronica Donovan.
“Misfire: The Rise and Fall of The Shooting Gallery” is a documentary about the independent film company responsible for such art-house hits as “Sling Blade” and “You Can Count On Me”; a company that rose to the top echelons of the independent film scene in the 90s before financial risk-taking and business mismanagement caused it to crash.
In 1991, a group of young filmmakers banded together to make films and created a company called The Shooting Gallery in lower Manhattan. It was a time when a “golden age of independent film” was just underway with the emergence of Miramax Films and the Sundance Film Festival.
The Shooting Gallery found great success producing over 20 feature films, including “Laws of Gravity” and Billy Bob Thornton’s Academy Award winning, “Sling Blade”. They also produced films including early work by stars Owen Wilson, Mark Ruffalo, Parker Posey, Elijah Wood, Courtney Love, Lawrence Fishburn and Robin Tunney.
They have financed their film on their own, and still need a lot of help. Now it’s up to you. Anyone who’s interested in helping, visit this site. By the way, Robin appears at 1:17.
I uploaded 27 pictures behind the scenes of “The Mentalist” 5×05 “Cherry Picked” episode. They show Robin and Simon chatting and walking around, Robin taking on/off heeled shoes and Robin and Simon getting their make-up on. Check them out!
On Sunday, September 30, the fifth seaso of “The Mentalist” finally premiered with it’s first episode 5×01 “The Crimson Ticket”. I managed to upload 174 HD screen captures of Robin, our lovely Lisbon. In this episode Patrick Jane interrogates Lorelei in an attempt to figure out her connection to Red John. The CBI is forced to partner up with the FBI to solve the murder of a hotel employee. Feel free to check the images out!
Since this website got hacked I lost many information and pictures, I had to re-upload the promotional images from the upcoming “The Mentalist” 5×01 “Devil’s Cherry” and 5×03 “Not One Red Cent” episodes. The second episode will be about an investigation of the murder of a diamond cutter and Jane meeting a girl who claims to be his late daughter Charlotte. While the third episode deals with a bank employee who is murdered during a heist and Jane and the team must work to track down the killer, while Lisbon is pulled deeper into the CBI/FBI rivalry. I also posted the promotional video for 5×02. Spoiler alert!
