Does Anyone Watch The Mentalist?

Because, this commercial is really bugging me.

See, towards the end the guy who is The Mentalist asks a bunch of people who killed Cara Palmer and tries tricking them into admitting they did it. Now, I’m not sure how many of you watched Twin Peaks (one of the best shows of all time), but the victim there was named Laura Palmer. And it was set in a wooded area. And the FBI agent sent to solve the case used tricks like this (maybe even this exact one, I can’t quite remember).

So, what I want to know is if anyone has watched both Twin Peaks and this episode, which is apparently called “Redwood.” The only people I “know” who watch this show are the guys on The Totally Rad Show, specifically Alex Albrecht who got the rest of the guys to watch it. What’s the verdict, is this an homage to Twin Peaks, a rip off or just coincidence? Help me Alex Albrecht, you’re my only hope!
