My interest in this show wavered after a short while, so i havn't seen anything recent. But what I have noticed is the commercials for CBS' "The Mentalist". From what you can tell of these brief commercials, the lead's gimmick in that one is his memory and ability to recall details. Aren't those supposed to be Shawn's ability? IOW, is this 'Mentalist' basically the same concept sans the humor?
