Brilliant!
Verified purchase
This is not my usual genre - I bought it to help with research for a book I'm writing - and so I did find it a bit spooky at first, but soon got into the story. The characters and plot are brilliant and I went on to buy all the other series! My older children watched it with me and we had some good family bonding over the episodes... I would highly recommend the Mentalist!

Adult yet mischievous crime drama!
Verified purchase
You have to keep an open mind while watching the dreamy Simon Baker's deliberately antagonistic plot machinations as Patrick Jane, because unlike most TV crime dramas - The Mentalist doesn't lead you gently by the hand to a stable conclusion. The murders are shown red in tooth and claw as are the devastated emotional grieving aftermath for the loved ones. This is a TV show with heart, even though at moments Patrick Jane seems utterly narcissistic and heartless. When we're allowed a few glimpses into Patrick's soul, the music softens, his smile, intelligence, guile, instincts all fall away and we can see the emotional scar tissue trauma he's still going through. Excellent performances from all the cast, giving it their all for prosperity as something they can be proud of. Each episode is played for keeps, with no lazy directorial or scripting shortcuts. Intelligent, twisty, mature yet mischievous drama.

Witty, gripping and addictive
Verified purchase
If you are a fan of CSI but are looking for something lighter then The Mentalist is the perfect TV show for you. Following the same, muder per episode, formula as CSI and other crime shows, this puts a new spin on the somewhat repetitive idea of solving crime by having the protagonist (Patrick Jane) be a Sherlock like guy who used to be a use his skills to con people. The result is a fresh, funny and gripping series that delivers both one off episodes and a continuing story arc involving a sadastic serial killer (red john) who killed the wife and daughter of Patrick Jane. The inclusion of this story arc makes this show all the more addictive as clues are scattered throughout many of the episodes and slowly build on the story between Red John and Jane. The other characters are very well developed and its easy to become invested in them. Robin Tunney is particularly good as Teresa Lisbon, the agent who, along with three others (Rigsby, Cho and Van Pelt) lead the investigations and put up with the odd, but very succesful and funny techniques used by Jane.
The episodes are well written: both funny and engaging and the concept of the show is both fresh and original. If you are looking for something along similar lines to CSI but very much different then look no further. The Mentalist is a brilliant show that i hope runs for many more seasons. (Its currently on season four, with season five imminent). So please, don't hesitate and pick this show up, its a steal at this price too.
There are a few special features, some deleted scenes and commentaries. The DVD set is well packaged and for those who don't like bulky boxsets it is ideal. All of the discs are stored in a regular DVD size case, though there does seem to be a problem with a couple of the discs slipping out on occasion because they squeezed them all in - don't let this deter you however.

An enjoyable American Drama
Verified purchase
I've been hooked on the later series of 'The Mentalist' showing recently on Channel 5 and thought I'd buy this DVD start from the beginning. Contrary to my expectations, this show hit its stride from the very start and even the pilot has the richness and depth in characters and story that I've come to love of the later series.

Much has been said of the depth of the characters but it bears repeating. All are flawed, and seeing the imperfections and touches of humanity in all of them is a joy.

Simon Baker as the lead role, in tandem with some excellent scripts, strikes a difficult balance: an individual with a gift for observation and a ready supply of entertaining mind games, arrogant and charasmatic, who has learned (a little) humility following the murder of his wife and child. There must have been a temptation to make Patrick Jane a kind of superhero, a flawless crime fighter with supernatural powers but his stunts sometimes backfire and though he is loathed to admit it he is occasionally suprised as events unfold. And he gets a bloody nose for his troubles at least once every other episode... I think I would have more difficulty accepting Jane's abilities if I wasn't such a fan of a certain Mr D Brown, whose sharp mind, sharp tailoring, quick wits and occasional miscalculations are brought very readily to mind while watching this series. Many of the tricks and techniques such on display in Derren's TV and live shows are also present in Jane's repetoire.

The relationship between Jane and Lisbon is brought vividly to life and fairly crackles with the chemistry between the actors on screen. Though there are hints, we are fortunately spared any tiresome romantic involvement and an element of tension between them is brought deliciously into focus when Jane confides his aim if Red John is found.

Rigsby and Van Pelt's 'thing' feels a little more strained and is less believable. It is not a major plot line, however, and is treated with deftness and subtlety by the writers.

Disbelief must still occasionally be suspended for the sake of entertainment and at times the stories can be a little formulaic. It is rare, however, that I feel unsatisfied or disappointed and for that I am grateful. And with almost 1000 minutes of running time, there is more than enough here to keep me entertained for a few weeks.

I would recommend this series to anybody, even cynical old men who usually tut and roll their eyes at tedious american dramas. I defy you not to be charmed by this wonderful peice of entertainment.

Great series with characters I love! They all take care of each other and make a great team,each of them with their own little foibles, most especially Jane who is a truly vulnerable genius who becomes the fundamental cornerstone, both professionally and emotionally, of the team. Clever with excellent humour, writing, and super characters who all love each other in different ways.

The best series
Verified purchase
This is the best season of the Mentalist, but in fact all of them are great - a great purchase for the seasoned fan, but if you are not a truly seasoned fan (as I am) I implore you to buy the DVDs in order from season one, they are fantastic purchases and I guarantee if you are not a seasoned fan, you soon will be!
The first episode of this series is just a fantastic way to introduce the series - Red John references without the real Red John showing up. This series is truly a fantastic introduction for when things get ramped up with Red John in series two - and from then on, the Red John storyline just continues escalating.

Great start to a series
Verified purchase
Loved watching The Mentalist on TV and glad I bought the first season on DVD. Unlike other crime dramas where knowing 'who did it' ruins re-watching the episodes, The Mentalist has such a great main character in Patrick Jane that I enjoy watching them again. It's quite a light crime drama and it cheers me up to watch it. In this first series we see the characters' relationships develop and we're introduced to the series' main story arch. Well worth watching if you like a light crime drama.
