Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Simon Baker's sly, sexy charm is a big reason The Mentalist is one of TV's most popular series. But Baker isn't the only appeal of this thoughtful, well-written, fast-paced crime drama. The Mentalist owes much more to Agatha Christie than to Law & Order or other contemporary police procedurals--because it focuses on Baker's character, Patrick Jane, using his brain and intuition to crack cases. Sure, there's the usual thorough police work done by Jane's California Bureau of Investigation team, led by the no-nonsense Agent Lisbon (the always appealing Robin Tunney). But Jane has gifts of observation that help profile, and capture, the bad guys preying on the good people around Sacramento. Jane is also pursuing his own specific demon: Red John, the evil serial killer who murdered Jane's family at the beginning of the series. It's a wonder that the folks in California aren't in a blind panic, given that this madman is still at large some three years later--but it's to The Mentalist's credit, and to its CBI in particular, that the story thread continues to be believable, and manageable from a crime-fighting perspective. The ensemble cast is stellar, including Tunney, who seems to be developing some deeper feelings for Jane. Other standouts include Tim Kang and Amanda Rhigetti, whose new romance with an FBI agent pummels the heart of her former flame, played by Owain Yeoman, and contains a potential landmine or two itself later in the season. But it's Baker's light, deft portrayal of a tortured genius who manages to keep a wry sense of humor that makes The Mentalist so compelling episode after episode. As always, the location shooting around Northern California is breathtaking.

This boxed set includes a great documentary with interviews of professors and former law-enforcement officials at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, talking about how real serial-killer profiling is done--and applying it to the fictional Red John. And this season also features an episode directed by Simon Baker, with a commentary from him that is particularly crisp and entertaining. Crime-show fans will love The Mentalist, and so will those intrigued by the always-baffling puzzles of human behavior. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

This season, Red John strikes into the heart of the CBI. Ever since the serial killer murdered Patrick Jane’s family, the California Bureau of Investigation consultant and former faux-psychic has become obsessed with finding the man who destroyed his life. But after a homicide suspect is set ablaze in his jail cell and a CBI agent is later framed as Red John, Patrick realizes his adversary is closer than he imagined. The 5-disc 24-Episode Season 3 of this hit procedural combines crime-solving twists with wry humor that celebrate mind over matter. In settings from gold country to the racetrack to a martial-arts cage brawl, unconventional Patrick uses his unique skills of observation and manipulation to buck the system. And crack the toughest cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Mentalist Please December 9, 2010
Format:DVD
As said before, with umpty-ump crime shows pasted all over the television screens and new ones promised of the next season it is gratifying to see that one of those crime shows maintains its integrity and appreciates its audience the way THE MENTALIST does. The writing is consistently good, the crimes investigated require thought in figuring out the perpetrator, but what really makes the series work is the presence of the main character - the almost nonchalant mindreader Patrick Jane. Part of this is due to the inventiveness of the creator of the series, part of it is due to the script du jour, but the whole thing couldn't work as well without the subtle acting skills of Simon Baker. Baker knows who to keep the twinkle in his eye, even in the most potentially dangerous moments. He never pushes his skills to make the character look like a seer, but instead inserts his penetrating opinions in a way that makes the whole teams of investigators work well together. He is ably supported by Robin Tunney, Tim Kang (a far too underused actor), Amanda Righetti, Owain Yeoman, and of course boss men Terry Kinney and Gregory Itzin. It is a strong team playing out a clever idea for bringing justice. Each season gets stronger, especially this season with Simon Baker being given the opportunity to direct an episode - an done of the best ones! Grady Harp, December 10

5.0 out of 5 stars A Third Season, Keenly Observed... April 2, 2011
Format:DVD
Simon Baker returns for a superb third season as Patrick Jane, former psychic and current consultant to the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Jane applies his keen powers of observation and psychological manipulation as part of the investigative team led by senior agent Theresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney), whose patience with Jane's often mischevious antics barely masks an growing personal interest.

"The Mentalist" continues to present interesting cases for the team to solve, while highlighting their interpersonal dynamics and CBI politics. Agent Lisbon will suffer through two new bosses, each with his or her own agenda and multi-episode narrative. Lisbon will even be sidelined for one case, pushing the deadpan Cho (Tim Kang) into a not entirely welcome leadership role. Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Rhigetti) takes up with a handsome and smooth talking FBI agent, much to the anguish of former boyfriend agent Rigsby (Owain Yeoman), but Van Pelt's new love may not be the man of her dreams.

Patrick Jane barely survives an encounter with infamous serial killer Red John at the beginning of the season, and the pursuit of Red John will be a recurring theme. As the team begins to suspect an insider leak, Red John will strike back hard at the people around Jane. Jane will also have to contend with competition in the consulting business, including an astrologer, a criminal profiler, and a medical examiner.

"The Mentalist: The Complete Third Season" should be highly entertaining to fans of the series, and is highly recommended to that audience for its unique take on the police procedural.

We had the cable for the TV disconnected about five years ago. A friend told us about The Mentalist DVD's and we are very pleased with the shows. Our family enjoys watching them more than once, and when purchasing the whole season, (or a couple/few seasons!) it's nice to watch over and over. We definitely "got our money's worth"...
Quality is very good- stories are fun, detective mystery, etc. Love the cast of this show...and we can't wait for the next season!

All fine actors who know their craft and can enunciate. The only program worth watching on tv and best of all it can be purchased on DVD without commercial. Simon Baker is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mentalist February 2, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A nice gentle, enjoyable, tongue-in-cheek series. Simon Baker is a real find as Payrick Jayne and makes a refreshing change from the usual macho gun-toting roles in law and order (not that I am objecting to the likes of Chuck Norris as Walker, Texas Ranger). I have the first two series now and am waiting for no. 3

5.0 out of 5 stars Studying People, A Graduate Course June 6, 2012
Format:DVD
Besides being supremely funny and entertaining to watch unsuspecting characters at a crime scene when they chase Patrick around after he cattle prods out of them information he needs to catalog and rank his deductions, being great fun to watch, it is also a good way for us to study people. This is an informative and educational tool in your attempt to read others. Jane has studied the clues and cues which are available to all of us if we knew about them. If he is trying to get further info all he has to do is sound insulting or accusational, out of line and/or embarrassingly to any potential suspect, then we watch as he watches their reactions, often having to run off as he is chased by an irate unsub. If needing to know more he prods them silly, until they see red, until he has a read, a piece to the puzzle, being able to set that piece in its appropriate place as he aids the law by being a great crime detective's adjunct professor. Especially nice is the way Baker's character eventually gets around to explaining to all the others why he concludes this or that about an unsub because of this or that reaction, smell, personality type having been found out, faults and strengths of each having been assessed, ruling in or out this or that, being able to prioritize the info as it comes in also going through his processor, it being an IQ-thing that finalizes the computations. From the Pilot into the show a few episodes all he appears to be is a jerk to the average viewer. We eventually learn there is a method to the madness he induces in others. Sounding, off the bat, before further explanations for his prickliness, it appears to be like the multiple misfirings of an intentional irritant, therefore as if being personal assaults, while in reality the reasoning behind why he does and says what he says is anything but personal.
