The Mentalist - Season 1

A mentalist is a master manipulator of thought and behavior. The Mentalist is Patrick Jane (Simon Baker), 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. The 23 episodes of Season 1 aired on CBS from 2008-9.

This series is refreshing and new. The main character, Patrick Jane, uses his gifts of observation and reading people in order to help the FBI. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a good mystery. Patrick Jane is a rather serious character who throws in a bit of comic reaction to his scenes. The Mentalist is well worth watching.

On September 23, 2008 The Mentalist made his television premiere on CBS. Simon Baker plays Patrick Jane, an ex con artist who conned individuals into believing he was a psychic medium. His career came to an end when he ridiculed a serial killer named Red John on national TV and was made to pay for it when that killer murdered his wife and daughter. Patrick Jane now works full time as a consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI) helping them to solve some really difficult cases. As portrayed by Simon Baker, Patrick Jane is extremely intelligent, believes that he is always correct and that he is smarter than anyone else in the room. He is extremely observant and uses his old skills to "read" the potential suspects in his cases. Due to his skills he is able to help the CBI close their cases and have great success. He is working with Teresa Lisbon who is the head of the team, Kimball Cho, Wayne Rigsby, and Grace Van Pelt who round out the staff of investigators. Patrick Jane is like a 21st Century Sherlock Holmes who uses his observations skills to know where a suspect has been, if they are lying or not and their guilt or innocence. He is a complex character who is great fun to watch and while he may seem to be a loner he needs his team mates to keep him grounded. CBS DVD (distributed by Paramount) has released Season 1 of The Mentalist on DVD so, if you are like I was and missed the first season on TV then you can quickly catch up while staying current with Season Two which is currently airing. This is a wonderful series! This show is clever, smartly written, well acted and great fun to watch. To listen to 24 Christian music please visit our internet radio station

Wonderful to be able to watch my favorite episodes whenever I want. I love the dry humor of many characters.

Stories are most engaging and interfesting. Great job by Simon Baker and a refreshing new twist as the basis for the stories.

It was fun seeing how James got his job and the story behind why he is doing it. I would love to see him capture Red Dog, but will have to wait and see next season.
