Mental: Book of Judges - open thread

CarradineOK, I have to admit that I was a little uneasy watching David Carradine's performance last night. Maybe it's the fact that he died just last week, but watching him in a wheelchair, unable to move and just staring into space, that was a little strange.

I also have to say I'm not a fan of this show's hero. What's up with that evil smile at inappropriate moments and his overall weird demeanor? Is he always like that?

Has anyone noticed that the outdoor shots of the hospital is the same hospital used in Grey's Anatomy?

Have to admit I also have eerie feelings watching David Carradine in this role considering the unfortunate circumstance.
I thinks Chris Vance is great in this role of Dr. Jack Gallagher....& not for a second did i give "The Mentalist" a single thought.
But sadly the ratings are not that great for "Mental".

Completely agree about the lead on the show. I think they were going for a Mentalist vibe, but they don't have Simon Baker and thus utterly fail.

Ahhh, but Simon Baker doesn't take off his shirt in each episode.

I also like the lead character. Seems good in the part. Carradine's part was a bit creepy especially with his death only being a week away. He didn't speak at all! However, he did an excellent job at playing the part. Not many people could have done it as realistically. He was a fine actor.

I like the main character a lot. I think the actor makes a superb leading man, and I like how the character smiles all the time rather than be openly confrontational. I was watching last night's episode thinking, "I wish I could deal with office politics like that".

But I agree with you on David Carradine. It was creepy.
