I have the first 5 seasons and am waiting impatiently for the 6th. I have watched the show on TV since the pilot episode and I rewatch the DVDs. This is one show where buying the DVDs has a long lasting payoff. The show has so many facets that rewatching always uncovers nuances not noticed before. Simon Baker is an outstanding actor. He totally inhabits the character of Patrick Jane. He created it and he owns it. Patrick Jane is a fully 3-dimensional character with a complex personality, a traumatic and compelling background, and plenty of flaws as well as admirable qualities.

The Mentalist is a crime procedural far different from any other and far more entertaining. But against that background it is the story of Patrick Jane, a con artist from a traveling carnival family whose history goes back 100 years. He lives between the world of carney hucksters and the outside world of marks. He has a moral compass that is remarkable for its realty based view of justice. Is it not the same as revenge? Is there objectively a right and a wrong or is it just stuff that happens? He is kind, generous and compassionate, hating the part of his past where he used his fake psychic "powers" to exploit the vulnerable. He is guilt ridden that by showing off those skills on TV to disdain a serial killer named Red John, he got his wife and little daughter murdered. The trauma put him in a mental hospital for most of a year and he was out for revenge ever since. Some of the episodes that show Patrick Jane's pain and loss are heartbreaking. He is at times, when justice is hampered by rigid laws, a cold blooded killer, in episodes that are astounding and award-worthy.

Through all this, Patrick Jane is the most lovable, charming, entertaining emotional mess imaginable.

Kudos for finally exposing Red John and not beating around the bush this season. This is the must see season.

"THE MENTALIST" IS THE ULTIMATE BEST COPS & CRIME SERIES EVER. THE ACTORS, THE WRITING, THE PREMISE & EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SHOW IS TOP NOTCH. THE ICING ON THIS DELICIOUS CAKE IS SIMON BAKER. I DON'T BELIEVE ANYONE COULD CARRY OFF THE ROLE OF PATRICK JANE THE WAY MR. BAKER DOES. THIS IS A MULTI-DIMENSIONAL CHARACTER, JUST LIKE REAL FOLKS, & SIMON BAKER'S ACTING SKILLS SHOW THIS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. IT'S EXCITING, INTERESTING, FUNNY, TOUCHING & CLASSY. YOU CAN CATCH IT ON TV, BUT, I LOVE HAVING ALL THE DVDs AT HOME SO I CAN WATCH IT ANYTIME I WANT.

I am not a big fan of the RJ plotline, but this was really well done. Not only the suspense of the chase but also that extra step closer to a romantic relationship between Lisbon and Jane. All the performances were first rate as usual. I was glad to purchase this episode.

I started watching this when some of my other shows were off season and now it is one of my favorites. I think what makes it for me besides all of Patrick Jane's antics is I really like all the other characters too.

Plus most of the episodes are very re-watchable.

Love the show. Love the characters. Looking forward to the rest of this season. Wondering was will happen after "Red John" is caught.

I really like this show, so I have to give it 5 Stars. I wouldn't have to have downloaded it if CBS would stop messing around with the show time! I read an article that said that this show was more popular in France than in the US. Hey CBS, maybe if you would stop messing with the show's starting time, it might pick up more of an audience in the US.

I mean really, in this day and age, why do networks feel the need to pre-empt their regular programming for Sports? If anyone really wants to watch a game there are a dozen or so Sports Channels to watch it on. Leave the regular networks for regular shows. I wouldn't be so upset if CBS would at least release an app for Roku or the Smart TV so we could see their shows on our time. Or how about making it free for Amazon Prime members?

The first episode of Season 6 is gripping. It looks like the integrity, determination, internal conflicts, and moral courage of each character are going to be put to their greatest test. I'm expecting that what follows will make or break each CBI character.

It's a showdown between Patrick Jane, Lisbon and the CBI team versus the skillful, nihilistic evil of Red John and his minions.

Can hardly wait for episode 2! :-)
