Editorial Reviews

The Mentalist is one of the most captivating TV police procedurals ever made. Part of The Mentalist's appeal is due to Simon Baker's easy, amazing performance as the California Bureau of Investigation's staff psychic. Part of it is in the snappy writing and the plots that are a cut above the average network cop show. And part of it is The Mentalist's splurging on shooting on location, all over California. It elevates the state to a costarring role, and enriches the plots and gives them depth and context. At the beginning of season 2, the plot thickens. Baker's character, Patrick Jane, and his boss, Agent Lisbon (the compelling Robin Tunney), are taken off the high-profile "Red John" case, because they are deemed "too close to it." That's actually true, as Jane joined the CBI solely to help catch the murderous Red John, who killed Jane's wife and child. Now that Jane and Lisbon are off the case, they focus, or seem to focus, on regular kidnappings, murders, and the like--while still trying to follow leads in the vexing Red John case without supervisors finding out. The Mentalist is an especially satisfying American TV series because it truly builds, episode to episode, but a viewer also can completely enjoy a single episode here and there without necessarily committing to the whole series.

But why would any viewer want to do that? Baker makes Jane a quietly effective crime solver, someone underestimated by fellow law enforcement officials as a "party trick" or fraud. But Jane's powers of perception--a steely focus that has nothing to do with magic, but everything to do with being completely in the moment--are such that most police agencies would be thrilled to have him on their staff. There's a nice line of sub-rosa chemistry, too, between Jane and Lisbon--believable because the two characters have camaraderie as well as a veneer of professionalism. The rich boxed set comes with great extras, including an interview with an actual mentalist, Luke Jermay, who is a consultant on the show, and who demonstrates his techniques of observation and deduction. There is also a great commentary by executive producer Chris Long with Jermay, pointing out all the subliminal clues in the first episode of the season. There are also several deleted scenes. Fans of police dramas and of any well-crafted and splendidly acted TV series won't want to miss The Mentalist --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

California Bureau of Investigation consultant Patrick Jane (Simon Baker in his Emmy®-nominated role) has a blatant lack of protocol but is self-assured and driven. The former “psychic” uses his talent for seeing the clues everyone else misses to solve the most baffling crimes. But there’s more than crime that makes this season a must-see: Lisbon and Cho reveal hints about their troubled pasts. Violence fells one CBI boss, and the new boss seems more interested in authority than teamwork. And as the Van Pelt-Rigsby relationship heats up, it threatens to cool down their careers. Match wits with the hit series that balances nimble humor with dark thrills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see TV April 24, 2010
The Mentalist is back and better than ever with 22 new episodes of innovative and manipulative crime-solving techniques. Season two starts off with a bang and keeps on delivering. There are lots twist and turns as Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) manipulates everyone and everything around him to uncover the truth behind the murders.

The story lines are better than ever and manage to develop the background, personalities, and lives of the main characters. We get insight into the childhood issues that drive both Jane and Cho. We get pulled in deeper as we watch the relationships between the characters grow and develop. The chemistry between Jane and Lisbon (Robin Tunney) continues to grow and the energy between them is electric.

This is the one show on TV where there is so much misdirection and redirection that guessing the ending isn't probable, even when all the info is sitting right in front of you.

If you're looking for excellent performances, spectacular writing, and a show where you can't predict what's coming next then this is definitely a show you want to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Time Favorite Show, Ever May 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This has got to be my all time favorite tv show, ever. The combination of characters put together for this series was nothing short of inspired. Although there is the requisite "beautiful people", there are at least not completely perfect little models in their ratings boosting bustiers.
The individualities, the quirky personalities and flaws are delightful and endearing. The brilliance and pathos of the lead, the 'mentalist' himself is wonderful and makes each show a treat to watch. Trying to figure out the clues and characters throughout and before the end is like an Agatha Christie short every week. It's great!
Please don't take this one off!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Return of the Mentalist... August 10, 2010
Simon Baker returns for a second excellent season as Patrick Jane, former psychic and current consultant to the California Bureau of Investigation, and still in search of Red John, the serial killer who murdered his wife and child. Jane applies his uncanny powers of observation and manipulation on behalf of the investigative team led by Theresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney).

The emphasis in season two is as much on character development as on the unique and puzzling cases themselves. Each team member gets an episode or two in the spotlight. Patrick Jane's origins are finally explained. Theresa Lisbon's former police partner will take over the Red John case, causing Lisbon to use some shocking leverage to maintain access. A Chinatown gang murder will bring back unwelcome memories for the deadpan Cho (Tim Kang). Last season's smouldering romance between Van Pelt (Amanda Rhigetti) and Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) will catch fire, forcing the two detectives into a difficult career choice. An old CBI boss will depart and a new CBI boss will arrive, affecting the dynamics between Jane and Lisbon, whose unspoken attraction continues to grow.

Season Two's episodes easily equal the fun and suspense of Season One. "The Mentalist: The Complete Second Season" is very highly recommended to fans of the show and to TV viewers looking for some new and different in a police procedural.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mentalist: The Complete Second Season June 4, 2010
Season Two brings more personal revelations about the characters. The relationship between Van Pelt and Rigsby grows to its ultimate outcome with an unfortunate twist tossed into the pot. Like Shakespeare wrote and spoken eloquently by Lysander in A Midsummer Night's Dream--"the course of true love never did run smooth."

The tension between Patrick Jane and Sam Bosco increases when Minelli gives the Red John case to Bosco's team. However, Red John is not pleased by this decision and executes a daring, bold move against the CBI in the episode -His Red Right Hand (Episode 8). This episode is one of the best episodes of the series--full of surprises and twists.

One sad note is the departure of Minelli, portrayed brilliantly by Gregory Itzin, as the head of CBI. In the above episode this is handled deftly. Of course, he jetted across the city to reemerge as wryly President Charles Logan in 24's final hours.

In Blood In, Blood Out (Episode 14) Kimball Cho's past is unveiled. It is another well written piece with the right elements. Cho's human side is displayed with delicate precision.

The Red Box (Episode 17) introduces Molly Hightower, the new head of CBI. The tension between Lisbon and Hightower begins. Jane and Hightower develop an unusual relationship during the rest of the season. It was a delight to watch.

Red Letter (Episode 22) and Red Sky in the Morning (Episode 23) show a different side of Patrick Jane. Of course, Red John is there with a few surprises for Jane. These two episodes need to be watched together. However, before you watch the last two episodes, it would be good to read William Blake's The Tiger, a poem which sums up this season very well as well as Red John's outlook on life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love The Mentalist October 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this show, so this review is bound to be biased. It's a good ensemble-type show. I like the secondary characters as well as the mains. The dialogue is well written, and supports development of and interaction between characters. It's very light on forensic information, but there are plenty of shows that cover the bases on the science of crime-solving. The Mentalist sports a more unique method of figuring out who done it. That plus the perfect blend of drama, suspense, plenty of humour, good writing and wonderful acting makes The Mentalist one of the best shows on television.
