    She called him "Patrick" a couple of times. When he introduced himself I believe he used a different first name. He must have picked up on that.

    Nope, when he came to her table he held out his hand and said "Patrick".

    I thought we were discussing if she knew who he was.

    If you'd said "And" instead of "But," that would make sense. But "But" makes it sound like you were contradicting him by saying the same thing he said. Which makes somewhat less sense.

    Mr. Jane is correct, his last name is Jane after all...........

    should the post office ladies have called him Sir Knight Patrick the Jane??

    We are really liking the reboot of the show. Having them work for the FBI allows them to go to new locales and not always be doing investigations in northern California. It was fun to have them go to New York for the investigation and branch out.

    Plus, the show is lighter again and allows Jane to have fun. There is just a lot more playfulness going on now between the characters. There are new characters to love and hate and for Jane to con.

    I agree! This way it can go back to the fun show it was in the beginning and it allows them for somewhat different stories.

    Although have to say I totally did not find the bald macho looking guy with tattoos to be the right choice for a computer programmer!

    What a breath of fresh air the show has now. I was really getting tired of the Red John storyline, so happy they've changed personnel and locations.

    Love how Jane will always get his way, and is perfectly content on sitting in a jail cell until that happens.

    The show went back to its roots. This is great. RJ story line was a burden pulling the show down, hopefully they won't get a new big bad as a replacement. As far as macho programmer, I work with one just like that.

    I did laugh when Kim asked Lisbon how she did it for all those years and Lisbon says, "I have no idea".

    Agree 100%!

    Very, very well done on the new direction. Great example of how to reboot a show.

    Kim needs to stop being such a beyotch. I'm sure she'll soon learn that she can't control Jane no matter how much she wants to.

    I'm glad the Red John story is done. It should've ended years ago. Wasn't crazy about the reveal. Kept thinking it would be Malcolm McDowell's character since he is a famous actor and a cult leader made more sense as a criminal mastermind.

    Like the reboot; however, network TV steals everything from cable shows. The original premise of this show was stolen from Psyche on USA and reboot is clearly similar to USA's White Collar. Just waiting for them to put Jane in an anklet.

    Hate that Rigsby and Van Pelt are leaving, but that seems par for a CBS show...

    It's interesting that you say that, because our other favorite show is White Collar. We have been waiting for Season 4 to show up on Netflix and it just showed up in the last few days. We are so excited.

    Maybe that's why we like the reboot so much. Just much more fun and interesting stories to follow.

    I also really enjoyed that interchange and exasperated expression on Lisbon's face over it. It's a sign that you really know the characters both from the writers and viewers side that the one scene said so much.
