Review: The Mentalist

This series impresses mainly through its main character, CBI (California Bureau of Investigation) consultant Patrick Jane. Jane started working as a consultant for CBI after his family was killed by Red John, a serial killer that he had humiliated in a live TV intervention at a time when Jane was pretending to be a psychic.
After the dramatic events when his family is murdered by the psychopath, Jane decides to help CBI in order to find Red John and get his revenge. Jade admits that his career as a psychic was a con he played on people. Even so, he proves valuable to CBI as he’s developed a set of skills that help the investigations. Hypnotism, pickpocketing and a deep understanding of the human nature are among Patrick Jane’s skills that prove helpful in catching criminals.
As expected, Jane is not a terribly quiet character and he ends up being a pain for his CBI boss. However, his contribution is always decisive in solving the cases and so he proves a valuable asset for the CBI. His particular way of seeing things and his excellent observation skills lead the CBI team to solve increasingly more cases. As expected, the elements related to Red John are the most captivating but the particular CBI cases Jane helps with are interesting as well.

The Mentalist is a successful mystery cop series that many people from around the world enjoy watching. Every year since its premiere in 2008, The Mentalist is renewed with one season for a good reason: fans demand it!
