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.
Who says our protectors don't have problems too. some of these cops are worse than criminals (Graceland) (Chicago PD) (Gang Related) and some of them deal with forces we can't understand (supernatural)(Lost Girl) (Beauty and the Beast). but there are those that are in a league of there own (the mentalist) (castle) (psych) (the closer). and those with amazing intellect (elementary) (bones) (scorpion) the one thing they all agree on is people are capable of anything given motive and opportunity. and all they have to do is PROVE IT!!
these series ended on there terms, some of these finales were epic and will forever go down in tv history as amazing. and some were absolutely trash (cough, castle, cough, cough). but all in all they got to run there course which is all any writer/tv fan wants closure
