Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Mentalist is one of the most captivating TV police procedurals ever made. Part of The Mentalist's appeal is due to Simon Baker's easy, amazing performance as the California Bureau of Investigation's staff psychic. Part of it is in the snappy writing and the plots that are a cut above the average network cop show. And part of it is The Mentalist's splurging on shooting on location, all over California. It elevates the state to a costarring role, and enriches the plots and gives them depth and context. At the beginning of season 2, the plot thickens. Baker's character, Patrick Jane, and his boss, Agent Lisbon (the compelling Robin Tunney), are taken off the high-profile "Red John" case, because they are deemed "too close to it." That's actually true, as Jane joined the CBI solely to help catch the murderous Red John, who killed Jane's wife and child. Now that Jane and Lisbon are off the case, they focus, or seem to focus, on regular kidnappings, murders, and the like--while still trying to follow leads in the vexing Red John case without supervisors finding out. The Mentalist is an especially satisfying American TV series because it truly builds, episode to episode, but a viewer also can completely enjoy a single episode here and there without necessarily committing to the whole series.

But why would any viewer want to do that? Baker makes Jane a quietly effective crime solver, someone underestimated by fellow law enforcement officials as a "party trick" or fraud. But Jane's powers of perception--a steely focus that has nothing to do with magic, but everything to do with being completely in the moment--are such that most police agencies would be thrilled to have him on their staff. There's a nice line of sub-rosa chemistry, too, between Jane and Lisbon--believable because the two characters have camaraderie as well as a veneer of professionalism. The rich boxed set comes with great extras, including an interview with an actual mentalist, Luke Jermay, who is a consultant on the show, and who demonstrates his techniques of observation and deduction. There is also a great commentary by executive producer Chris Long with Jermay, pointing out all the subliminal clues in the first episode of the season. There are also several deleted scenes. Fans of police dramas and of any well-crafted and splendidly acted TV series won't want to miss The Mentalist --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

California Bureau of Investigation consultant Patrick Jane (Simon Baker in his Emmy®-nominated role) has a blatant lack of protocol but is self-assured and driven. The former "psychic" uses his talent for seeing the clues everyone else misses to solve the most baffling crimes. But there's more than crime that makes this season a must-see: Lisbon and Cho reveal hints about their troubled pasts. Violence fells one CBI boss, and the new boss seems more interested in authority than teamwork. And as the Van Pelt-Rigsby relationship heats up, it threatens to cool down their careers. Match wits with the hit series that balances nimble humor with dark thrills.

3.0 out of 5 stars LIKES & DISLIKES Jan. 12 2011
By Don B.
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this series and series 1 & plan to purchase Season 3 when available. I must say I am starting to get annoyed with the ongoing saga of Red John.Enough is enough. Time to move on with a different theme for Simon and still keep the series interesting as it currently is.

The cast is well suited to this show and I have nothing but praise for all the participants.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable and entertaining. Aug. 20 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Mentalist: The complete second season. We also have the Mentalist season 1 and 3. We just love his wit and the way he handles the people around him. We have always been fans of the who done it kind of show but this is one of the best. Not only is Mr. Jane intuitive but he is also very handsome. The cast just blends together perfectly and we enjoy each episode especially the Red John and the Physic Christine ones. In a Country like the US it is quite different to see everyone drinking tea and we quite often make ourselves a cup of tea while watching. We hope to continue to enjoy The Mentalist for many seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show April 17 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Mentalist is an awesome detective show to watch. It is about a man, Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) that found his wife and daughter murdered. Patrick ends up work for the CBI (California Bureau of Investigation) as a consultant. His tactics can be comical, but always solves the case. Patrick use to be a con artist prior to finding his family murdered. I recommend The Mentalist to everyone who loves detective shows with comic relief :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a Good Series! April 3 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Mentalist can be enjoyed for the mystery on one level and still manage to not take itself too seriously. Star Simon Baker was made for this role and his character carries a personal past history that manages to intertwine with the other weekly mysteries that keep you on your toes.
