"There are no such things as psychics!" - Patrick Jane (The Mentalist). Cynical, unconventional, non-conformist, intentionally inflammatory and manipulative behaviouralist: All these words and more could describe the character 'Patrick Jane', most admirably played by Simon Baker. This series is unique and exceptional, and although it's humour may not appeal to all, it's a must watch in my opinion! Assuming you appreciate its humour, you'll laugh at Jane's wild and untamed antics, as he plays on the behaviours and emotions of suspects to find out their secrets, condemn them or acquit them of crime. Not one to stick to the rules of society, or even of his superiors in the police-force where he is a 'consultant', Patrick Jane closes cases with his exceptional powers of observation and understanding of human behaviour. It comes with a very watchable cast of characters, with excellent acting. This show is unique, funny and very entertaining and internationally popular too! I know my family (usually not too interested in TV shows) and their friends in Australia watch it! Don't miss this series! It's well worth your time.

this show is the bomb. it is soooooooo awesome. it is a mystery show though it can also be funny. XD

Excellent and interesting, still, as it completes its fifth season. all seasons worth watching.

Please think about splitting up the seasons - No one can watch 6 or 8 DVD's in a week - let more people enjoy the series. eg. Season one could be in 4 DVD cases.

Thank you

This is much better then waiting a week or more following a series and finding you have to miss a show because of the unforeseen nature of life.

Friends recommended this show. I started watching this show online, with (ugh) commercial breaks. It's much more enjoyable on DVD. Patrick's the most charming detective in America.

The Mentalist is VERY funny and entertaining; it's a cop show but 'Jane Patrick' always makes chaos and then ends up figuring it out. He's got alot of nerves and is super funny at the same time. I advise you: WATCH IT!

Is it just me or does Jane's silver Citroen DS-19 strangely resemble Columbo's car, the Peugeot 403?
