The Mentalist Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

A detective who can mind read--well, not really. However, Detective Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) does posses acute observation skills--skills he honed as a mentalist--and uses them to solve cases for the California Bureau of Investigation.

Simon Baker is fantastic in The Mentalist. It's a show you can't stop watching. Hopefully it will continue to be as good as it was when the show orbited around the pursuit of Red John.

Simon Baker successfully develops the character Patrick Jane in this detective series with a pleasant twist. The Mentalist proves not all "cop" shows need be the same. Enjoyable to watch and an excellent end written to the series.

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.
