I think I've figured out why I haven't caught up with The Mentalist
yet. I think its because I'm subconsciously resentful that The Mentalist
got a strong viewership and became such an instant success while Life
was not renewed.
Its not The Mentalist
's fault, in fact I do like it. Also, Simon Baker is pretty so plus points there but... *sigh* there's this part of me where I'm feeling resentful The Mentalist
got it so easy while my show struggled.
Although, I don't know why I seem to have an easier time with Castle
the USA summer show, now that Life
's been gutted I'm really embracing Burn Notice
, not that I haven't before. Last season was a game changer for Burn Notice
, Michael finally met with the people who burned him and jumped off a helicopter to tell them what he thought of their offer.
Instead of looking for the people who burned him and the reasons why, Michael is going to have his hands full fending off his old enemies. Alan Sepinwall has a very interesting interview with Matt Nix, the creator of Burn Notice here( Burn Notice 3x01 )( Burn Notice: 3x02 )
I loved reading Sepinwall's interview with Matt Nix. Its a real shame Sepinwall never interviewed Rand before it was gutted. ( Thoughts on Matt Nix interview... which turned into Life thoughts. Huh. )
