My mom just loves this show

by A customer on 12/10/2010

I watch it with her from time to time, and it is definitely amusing. While it is network television, it just works well and overcomes the outsider in a cop drama stereotype enough to be enjoyable. Of course, if you wanted a hardcore emotionally involving drama, you'd be watching Breaking Bad. Instead this fits the light humor, get away from the world for an hour genre, and does it pretty well.

Product Overview

“A mentalist is a master manipulator of thought and behavior.” The mentalist is Patrick Jane (Simon Baker in an acclaimed performance), a celebrity psychic whose wife and child are viciously murdered by an elusive serial killer called Red John. Devastated, Patrick admits his paranormal act is fake, renounces his earlier life and uses his astonishing skills of observation and analysis – talents that made him appear psychically gifted – to bring killers to justice. At crime scenes across California, Patrick now helps an elite team of detectives break their toughest cases. But no matter how many criminals he catches, Patrick never forgets his central goal: Find Red John. And bring him down.

Editors Note
Note After some success on TV?s THE GUARDIAN, Simon Baker brings his trademark cocky charm back to TV with this highly rated CBS procedural. Baker stars as Patrick Jane, an independent detective whose observational skills are highly prized by the California Bureau of Investigation. As much as his colleagues--Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney), Kimball Cho (Tim Kang), Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman), and Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti)--value his results, they are less excited by his unorthodox approach to crime solving. However, Jane?s sexy swagger hides a painful past: his wife and daughter were murdered by a man known as Red John, and though he pursues other criminals, this serial killer is always on his mind. THE MENTALIST boasts fascinating cases and a strong supporting cast, but unlike CBS?s other popular crime dramas CSI and CRIMINAL MINDS, this is a one-man show that gets its spark from Baker?s performance. This release includes the series? first season.

Review The Mentalist is yet another crime-drama, that follows the detecting skills of one Patrick Jane (Simon Baker -- The Devil Wears Prada, The Guardian) who is a "consultant" for the CBI -- California Bureau of Investigation. Mr. Jane used to be a fake psychic, and turned a pretty good dollar doing it. He was the big time, as far as that line of work goes, and he now freely admits he was a fake. Like Holmes, he's just good at observing...The first five episodes have played out brilliantly, and we're moving into a critical time for a show like this. I remember when House first started, and there was a real roadblock after something like six or seven episodes when it became distractingly boring that no one could conceive House might be right about anything. The Mentalist has built in a bit of a save to this, in that Robin Tunney's character (who is his boss, or at least bossish) begrudginly admits that he does turn out to be right a lot. She might be moving toward a dangerous line of over-disbelieving him though. We'll see...I strongly urge you to check out the show. It's fast, fun, and at least going for something mental over silly drama (unlike many a show with ludicrous ratings which? ummm? investigate crime scenes, and think acronyms?or I guess just abbreviations? are, "Way Frickin Cool Man!!!")

Hal Boedeker, Orlando Sentinel It's Baker's show, and he excels. But guest stars impress, too.
