Over four years ago Psych aired with the premise of a fake psychic using his powers of observation to solve crimes. Years later, The Mentalist aired with the exact same premise. How can their creator literally steal the same idea and pan it off as their own? I'm not saying the Mentalist is a bad show, it is just a complete knock off. I am a bit late with this but in an episode of Psych, it would appear that the writers a little fun at the Mentalist's expense: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qf8M57we1I]YouTube - Psych is like The Mentalist[/ame] Eat it, mentalist!
