Mentalist, The 2.20 Red All Over (2010)

The CEO of a major international media group is murdered and his under-achieving brother is prime suspect.

6/10

The final solution is pretty interesting (father kills son who had an affair with his wife and sired a daughter; only he kills the wrong son) but how we get there is, frankly, unexplained. Jane wanders around for a bit, there’s an astoundingly ridiculous bomb-cultist story branch then he sets up the killer. It’s fun enough and Malcolm McDowell is always good for a bit of sliminess, but the formula is wearing thin.
