I dunno what they have been going for with the darker tone though. Apeing the Mentalist maybe?
I don't think that's it. According to one of the writers Steve Franks manifesto at the end of Season 2 was that Season 3 had to be funnier, the mysteries had to be more interesting and the show more epic, for lack of a better work. I just assumed it was the result of a show evolving rather than the writers getting complacent.
