The fifth season of the Mentalist will take you even deeper into Patrick Jane's world. With the capture of Lorelei Martins, Jane is determined to use her in order to find Red John's real identity. Jane uses his wits, honesty, and even deceptions in attempts to "convert" Lorelei. We also get to see more glimpses of Jane's pasts, and (perhaps) learn more about Red John's background. In this season, Jane is more reckless, cunning, and charming than ever.

This season also explored deeper into the personal lives of the CBI team. Lisbon has her own nemesis, a criminal who she is more determined to catch than any other criminal. During this chase, she becomes quite obsessed with catching him. No doubt, she understood Jane's obsession with Red John more now that she, too, has someone who she wanted to catch so badly. As for other members, we get to see more of their personal lives as well: Cho and Summer; Rigsby and Van Pelt; and Rigsby and his father. These episodes allow us to learn more about the team.

And of course, there is a special episode in which we get to see the moment Patrick Jane first walked into the CBI, and how he eventually joined the team. All in all, this season is not the one you'd want to miss!

This show is not your average cop show. The show is based in Sacramento, Ca., and I'm happy that some of it is actually filmed there. No doubt CBI's headquarters is filmed in L.A.'s film studios.

Yes this show did start off with Jane tracking down Red John - his wife and daughter's killer. Jane is still trying to catch this illusive serial killer. And having copy cats and "helpers" doesn't really help Jane get any closer to Red John. But for the past 5 seasons, this show has done a good job in showing that Patrick Jane has matured. He can be both obsessed in finding Red John AND being able to function in other activities: I.e. helping Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) investigate crimes. His job is after all a paid consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Simon Baker plays a really good "mentalist" in this show. "Mentalist" in Patrick Jane's perspective as an admitted fraud to psychic powers. I liked how he commented in one show how there was no such thing as a psychic. Simon Baker has received nominations from Emmy, Guild and Golden Globe for his performances. I think he should have one at least one of those awards due to the fact that he really gets into character quite well.

Robin Tunney is Jane's rock. She does a good job in keeping her character as a tough special agent. Her character still has a rough edge attitude in season 5. Robin has surprised me considering I still think of her as one of the witches from The Craft in 1996.

I've watched this show from the beginning. The suspense and twists on Red John are great. Cannot wait for more.

In the fifth season opener, the CBI and FBI join forces to cover up the mess created when the FBI botched a CBI mission to capture Red John and a CBI agent is brutally murdered. Bertram is back playing politics with his FBI counterpart, and Patrick Jane is determined to crack captured Red John disciple Lorelei (EMMANUELLE CHRIQUI). The case of the week is a doozy - a double homicide with no apparent connection between the two victims. When the CBI and FBI are forced to play nice and investigate the double homicide together, Jane uses his skills to solve the case and to force the FBI to relinquish custody of Lorelei. Great start to the season.

Easy to watch and no need to pay more for the HD if you get a strong connection. And no commercials is plus.

This is one series that has captivated me.. just lately! For some reason I never got to watch it in the first 4 seasons, now i can't get enough. It airs every day at some point and I DVR them all... I am currently watching season 5. To watch our everything is figured out by a very handsome man who has great chemistry with his "boss" is great!

When I first read about this show, I was intrigued by the premise, and I haven't been disappointed yet--not in one single episode. The whole cast is terrific, the writing is amazing, and it manages the balance between funny and sad and frightening really, really well, so that I always feel satisfied with the quality of the story telling.

I loved Simon in the Guardian and he just seems to get better and better with each show. I do hope there will be a 6th season.

No one can covey more powerful emotions with only his eyes than Simon Baker. The ensemble cast is a perfect foil for his talents.
