This is the top show from this Fall's TV lineup. It's a more adult take on the USA Cable show "Psych." The character operates in the same manner as Sean in Psych, using observing of tiny details and nuances to catch the bad guy, but we also want to root for him, as he has some personal motivation to catch his family's killer, Red John.

It is a break from Procedural cop shows. And also, the star is certainly easy on the eyes....

Sort of noticed that Patrick Jane doesn't have a desk at the CBI but rather he always resting on a couch when in the office.

I'm as addicted to this show as much as my other two favorites:
Law & Order (whatever variety) and Medium.

The title part, Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) is just so knowledgeable and arrogant! It's like because he can read people so well, he knows just what he can get away with (like tweaking a rich creeps nose cause he knows the guy won't press charges because he knows it would make him [the creep] seem "petty!")

It makes Thursday nights worthwhile again!

It does have some poignant parts as well - a cop series set in Sacramento, after all - but it is the humor and insight that really makes this show.

It would make sense that the series is set in Sacramento since that is the state captial of California and the group is a state wide police force. I suspect the group gets involved in cases the local police force can't handle it or when it crosses different city limits.

I am kind of wondering if the CBI guys fly to the exterme limits of the state or they just drive very long distances but don't make a point of it in the episode.

I was kind of expecting more from the flashback sequence on tonight's episode. Perhaps maybe future episodes would shed more light on Patrick's life.

Helen you are right. It was a really good show though I so enjoy watching the interaction of the characters and am completely entertained by Cho.

Been noticing that last two weeks that this series and CSI have swap times. I don't know if this is temporary or not.

The series has been back at 9pm (HST) on Thursday night for quite some time. Just saw a tape of this past Thursday's episode where the team have to deal with a hitman.

The series has been moved to Sunday nights some time ago. Also this season Patrick has a list of possible Red John suspects and while Patrick does not know but we the audience knows that there is a secret group of law enforcement that does illegal things, how Red John fits into this group is yet to be known.

Last week's episode has Patrick finding the real Red John (won't go into details on what happen).

This week's episode two years have passed and now Patrick is part of the FBI.
