*snaps fingers, points* The Mentalist* That's it! I have a hard time telling him apart from the dude on Life, particularly when I'm tired (which is always) and when the photo's small. I'm not sure what I'm picking up on that makes them seem similar to me. They're both slightly off-beat (the guy on Life even more-so than the Mentalist). Plot-wise and overall looks, I groove more on the Mentalist, but somehow did not deter me from picking up the complete first season of Life last week.
We have NCIS, The Mentalist and Psych in common. Eventually we'll have Torchwood in common -- I own the first season but haven't gotten around to watching it yet. And somehow I think today's new arrivals (from Amazon) will jump line. (Man from Uncle (complete box set, including silly little briefcase) and I Spy (also the complete set).
