How much 'exposure' goes on in the show, if any? I don't know because I don't watch it. I've heard that simple 'techniques' and plenty of cold reading lines and mentalist's ploys are involved in some episodes.

16 million (+) people is A LOT of folks to share your precious cold reading lines with, LMAO!!! It seems the show has staying power, so how long do you think it will be before they start tipping things like CT's, Imp devices, swami's, OA stuff, etc?

Maybe this is not even what the show is about, I need to see it I guess. Until then I remain 'curious.'

They reveal very little. I think that at this point you would be pleased. Very subtle and extremely effective.
I hope they expose little or nothing. As you know, I am a Mad Man when it comes to exposure. In one episode a toothpick moved across the table ... One of the detectives says "He's blowing on it." That's as bad as it has gotten. Tonight was a spoon fork and toothpick illusion ... not explained.

I saw it tonight, and thought it was pretty entertaining. Off the top of my head, I do not recall any exposure.

Simon finally has a hit! Good for him and good for mentalism (now people has some kind of frame of reference when you talk about mentalism).

I agree. Lot's of people watching and it's not too over the top Smile

The cool part was he played ROSHAMBO in one of the episodes!

Nice tie in for my live and radio performances Smile

Yeah, unsure why a rerun already.

I would guess that the show they ran last night had very poor ratings and they wanted to reexpose it once they got the spike in ratings rather than burn a new show, now they are at least one more week out before they officially go into 'reruns'.

This also means the DVD set of season one will be out about a week after the final show airs.

These days a lot of shows get away with just 12. I think The Mentalist actually has 14 shows in the can for this season.

It's a smart show if a little formulaic.

Simon Baker's a hoot!

Has anyone heard if there will be a 2nd season of the show? It seems to me that they have left a lot open to explore on the red killer thread...

With those ratings I would guess so. CBS/VIACOM have very little going for them these days.

I could not pay for better advertisement, especially in these "lean" world economic times. Thanks Simon. Smile

Well, we had another re-run last week so I'm losing steam on this. If it's a re-run tonight I won't be keeping my schedule open at 8PM on Tuesdays anymore.

Is there a way to see if it's a re-run ahead of time? I don't watch much TV.

Thanks
Dave

I can't even find it on the schedule for tonight. Rats!
Thanks for the information. Seems it won't be on again until the sixth.
That's all the episodes then?

This helps a little. It appears that there are going to be 14 episodes.
