About two seasons too long and the weird romance between Jane and Lisbon in the last two seasons felt forced and, honestly, a little creepy considering the brother-sister vibe I always got from them, and yet... and yet, it's a great series. Simon Baker is very watchable and the way he plays Patrick Jane is both brilliant and tragic. Definitely watch the first five seasons, the last two... meh

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.

*SPOILER ALERT*
This show is an amazing mixture of crime, mystery, comedy and drama. The concept of Red John was brilliant and it gets the viewer hooked to the show wanting to know how in the hell did he do that? Or how does he know things before Patrick Jane does.
At one point, it felt as though Red John could have been an organization or something, looking at the way he operated and had knowledge of everything. Everything about this show was amazing except one thing... The Reveal.
When Red John was revealed, i doubt i've ever felt as much disappointment about anything else. The way he is dealt with by Patrick; the fact that they didn't tell us how red john operated and how he knew about Patrick's Red John List of Suspects, made me go "omg that was so pathetic. It was much better when we didn't know who Red John was".
If the writers could have done a better ending for Red John, it would have been a literal mind blowing series. But it felt as though they were trying, but couldn't come up with a better Reveal.
But overall would definitely, without a doubt, recommend this show to others.
