Format: DVD
The Mentalist of the title is Patrick Jane, a former showman who used his formidable powers of observation, intuition and hypnotic suggestion to pose as a physic. This all came crashing to a halt when he boasted on TV of having helped police search for an enigmatic serial killer known as Red John. In revenge, Red John murdered his family, leaving Patrick Jane a bitter and broken man.

In the series, Jane has joined the California Bureau of Investigation (a sort of small-scale version of the FBI for the State of California) as a consultant in order to work towards catching Red John. The new and cynical Jane has disavowed being psychic, but still uses his abilities to read witnesses, trick people into confessions, and totally infuriate the CBI staff he works with. By season 3, Jane has encountered Red John several times without getting much closer to catching him, although he now realises is very influential and well-connected, and it's still not clear if he has an agenda, or is just totally psychotic.

The team is led by Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) with two experienced male agents called Kimball Cho and Wayne Rigsby. Grace Van Pelt is a newcomer who has gradually come into her own. Jane is played to excellent effect by Simon Baker, who keeps him interesting and watchable despite often being enigmatic, moody, and infuriating.

The usual episode sees the team being called to a murder scene that the local town police can't handle. Jane will appear to bumble around the edges, asking sharp questions and sarcastically dismissing the ideas of the professionals. Eventually, he will pull some trick that reveals the truth in an impressively clever way, although he often misjudges his cleverness and has to be rescued from an angry criminal by the team.

Still watchable, but unlike other police procedurals like CSI and NCIS, The Mentalist seems to be winding down in season 3. The lines are getting cheesier and more obvious, there's less humourous interplay between characters (especially the previously amazing Agent Cho) and the makers seem to be relying purely on Simon Baker's charisma to get them through each episode. Agent Lisbon (female lead agent) seems even more wooden and unconvincing as an agent of the law. Id go so far to say that each episode has become a bit of a chore to watch, and in general you know that a TV show is going downhill when they let one of the actors (Baker) direct an episode. Perhaps, its a sign they arent really that bothered anymore. The Mentalist has lost its entertaining smoothness and humour, and Im afraid to say Im only still watching to the end to find out what happens with Red John.

As several other reviewers have commented, Season 3 of The Mentalist follows the successful formula of the previous seasons, and very enjoyable the episodes are too. But at the end of "The Red Mile" you get something very different & very wonderful...one of the finest scenes I have seen in a long time - beautifully written & superbly acted. I don't want to give anything away, but it brought a lump to my throat and was worth the purchase price of the series by itself. Stunning...go and watch it now!

Bought this after we watched this series out of order on freeview. It is definitely worth watching all of the seasons in order. We can't wait until series 4 and 5 are released on DVD!!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By AK TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Oct 2011
Format: DVD
The third season of the Mentalist continues along the lines of the series - a fresh approach to crime with none of the now typical high budget high tech forensics, cops dressed like high society celebrities or scenic helicopter shots of the surroundings. Patrick Jane (played by Simon Baker) is the ex-medium turned police consultant, who uses his acute powers of observation of people to solve crimes.

The Red John mass murderer case continues to hover in the background but is less defining than in the first season - the scene for it has already been set and the third season works on developing the relationships in the CBI team further. The chemistry between the actors continues to exist, in spite of the semi official relationships being off. This allows the writers to delve more in the characteristics of the cast, which make the series continuously engaging.

So if you are looking for an amusing crime show, where the protagonists often bring a smile to your face (not that the crimes would, don't get me wrong) the Mentalist is still hard to beat, even in the third season. And the introduction of several new, colourful characters, all in some ways related and complementary, keeps things interesting.

Whether Red John gets caught, well, dive in and find out!

I've enjoyed re-watching Season 1 and Season 2 of The Mentalist on DVD and Season 3 is just as good. It's a light crime drama and is very easy watching. While I'm a fan of a lot of crime dramas on TV, The Mentalist is one of the few I'm happy to watch again on DVD as the interaction of the characters and the wonderful Jane mean I don't mind knowing 'who did it'. Season 3 continues on from Season 2 and I'd suggest watching the seasons in order to understand the ongoing story arch.
