Illusions, distractions. You name it, the Mentalist will do it to solve a crime. Simon Baker really does steal the show and you cannot help but enjoy it.

this show hit me like no other before. there is something about it. Besides the natural "feeling" the two main characters have due to their strong friendship or the red john story arc which is very intriguing from the beginning. I think what made this show different for me where all the subtle details the hidden meanings all the symbolism you could find if you where paying attention. The excellence through simplicity.
This show can be many things for each viewer and even though it is not perfect I wouldn't change a single thing.
I won't say anything about Tunney or Baker cos I just don't have the words to describe the way they made their way into my heart. to never come out.

Loved the deceptions, I don't think there are many other tv shows where you see this many tricks all the time, it was really fun to watch. A great show, which always entertains when watching the con.

Reasonable show, however I think they stuffed up a bit in season 6. They should have had Red John caught at the end of the season then picked the new season up "2 years later" instead of getting halfway through season six, ending the Red John storyline then having the next episode set 2 years later. Got tiresome for me after that - especially with them moving to the FBI.

A ripoff of Psych, but it still found a place on my DVR until RedJohn was discovered. Then I just lost interest and forced myself to watch a lot of it.

Years ago when I watched it, I loved it.
Though after they revealed Red John I felt like the show was just going in a meaningless direction.
Till then it's interesting seeing relationship between two main characters develop, but it's nothing super original that you wouldn't find in any other this type of series.
