At long last the end of the Red John saga, Patrick confronting the man who destroyed his family and taunted him so sadistically ever since.

Flashforward two years. Now taking life easy on a tropical beach somewhere, Patrick is tracked down by the FBI. They want to make use of his skills, but strictly on their terms. As if! Ever the maverick, he is soon running rings round his bosses and colleagues - complete with a fine new couch where he can recline whilst they work their socks off.

A move thus from the sombre to the lighthearted, throughout awesome observational skills causing villains to be brought to book.

Critics will find loopholes in plenty, inconsistences, cliches. They may claim creators probably decided the identity of Red John by tossing a coin or drawing the name from a hat. Examples of well worn themes? How about the old one of a man on Death Row, his execution due within hours, team racing against the clock to find vital new evidence? Elsewhere is the desperate race to a plane about to take off with the love of one's life.

Away with such criticisms! They are part of the series' charm. This is light escapist entertainment doing exactly what it sets out to do.

At times irritatingly cocky? Yes, but Simon Baker's Patrick Jane as usual radiates charm. Colleague Tim Kang remains impressively expressionless. Welcome additions are Rockmond Dunbar as FBI's Dennis Abbott and Joe Adler as computer whizzkid Wylie.

22 episodes. A bonus explains how the needed change came about.

Perhaps occasional signs of spacefilling and over-casual plotting hint the series is running out of steam. Season 6, though, still offers much to enjoy, not least the sight of Red John getting his comeuppance.

The season where everything came to a head. My memory was of the show going downhill after the resolution of the Red John storyline in this series. This should probably have happened at the end of Season 5 and should perhaps have been the end. But the show carried on for a further two-thirds of a series and was an interesting reboot. Judging from my memory of Season 7, it should definitely have ended at the end of Season 6. It has been fun watching the show all over again. I still have Season 7 to watch and am grateful for that, even though my memory of it is of feeling that the show had passed its sell-by date by then. I'll see if I still feel the same once I've watched it again.
