Product Details

Product Description


The Mentalist is nominally a police procedural (and an excellent one), but its characters are especially richly written, and there's romance and torment hinted at in equal measure throughout the series. All of this--and the star turn by dreamy Australian actor Simon Baker, whose smoldering good looks take a back seat to his nuanced acting--make The Mentalist one of TV's top drama series. Season 1 sets the action in motion immediately, as the viewer quickly learns the backstory: Baker's character, Patrick Jane, was once a questionable TV psychic (à la John Edwards) who professed to help people contact their deceased loved ones. But a crazed killer--"Red John"--was watching one day when Jane mentioned assisting California police on his case, and in retribution he committed a horrific crime with staggering personal repercussions on Jane. Jane leaves his sham life behind, but it turns out he's actually quite gifted as an observer of subtle human behavior--a "mentalist," who, he tells the California Bureau of Investigation, "is a master manipulator of thought and behavior" So Jane joins the CBI in tracking tricky cases, including that of Red John.

The rest of the cast is terrific, especially Robin Tunney, who may have found the role, and series, of a lifetime, as Teresa Lisbon, the head of the squad, who must keep Jane on track but give him enough lead to assist the often skeptical power structure. There's undeniable chemistry between Jane and Lisbon, yet any potential romance is superseded by a very real-feeling mutual respect and admiration, which shows its own kind of tenderness. Other stellar cast members include Tim Kang (the all-business Kimball Cho), Owain Yeoman (the ambitious rookie Wayne Rigsby), and Amanda Righetti (the doe-eyed newbie Grace Van Pelt, who may have a lot to learn in traditional police work, but who has a deep understanding of and respect for Jane's psychic abilities). Another star worth mentioning: The location shots all around California, which give the show a life and depth seldom seen on network series. The lush real settings--a mansion in San Francisco, a weedy rural road outside Bakersfield--add to the immediacy and intensity of the story lines.

The first season boxed set is a bounty and includes all 23 episodes, a fantastic featurette with the cast and creators on making the series, as well as a mini-doc on the difference (and there is one) between a mentalist and a psychic. Fans of the series won't want to miss the gag reel, either--the cast clearly has as much fun making the show as its fans do watching it. --A.T. Hurley

Great show, great characters. I bought this for my mom and my grandma who both love it. If you ever enjoyed Matlock or any crime/detective shows, you will love this. A light, contemporary version of all of the best cop shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mentalist - Season 1 Jan. 31 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the blend of drama and comedy in this show - very broad and appeals to everyone. Patrick is wonderfully amusing and Theresa is the perfect foil. The premise is very entertaining and heart-wrenching at the same time. The entire cast really pull it all together and make it come alive. You can watch one episode and enjoy it or watch the whole season and know the sub-plot and the character lines. Well written. The price is way better than retail and the shipping was fast and easy. Great Value - great product!

I have been watching this show for a couple of years but wanted to start from the beginning... It is definitely worth watching, to see how much the characters have developed over time. Well worth buying.

Simon Bakerr makes the DVD work. I like the commentary by the director that the more he got to know Simon, the more sccared he was of him knowing what he was thinking. Read more
