I am busy watching the first episode of The Mentalist and it is going pretty damn well! He just told a co-worker who said that her cousin was a psychic that she is "either dishonest or delusional!". Brilliant!

Chat later.

It's a good show. I just wish they would push the boundaries a bit further, they play it fairly safe.

I've watched up to episode 13, episode 14 airs on the 18'th in usa, I have some positive and negative opinions on the skeptic angle but I'll not spoil it for you guys. If anybody wants I can burn a dvd of all the episodes and bring it to the skeptics booze-up in feb.

thanks wandapec Wink

I watched the first episode yesterday and really enjoyed it. I know it's only the first episode, but I liked his short no nonsense answers to questions that usually get the safer "nobody knows" or "you decide".

When the question of the afterlife came up he also didn't beat around the bush and made it clear he believed that there is not much chance for any sort of life after this one.
