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.

I totally adore this series and the lovely Simon Baker. For anyone who is a fan and has followed the 'Red John' story line, this season is the best. We finally get to the Red John climax and Patrick gets justice, for the murder of his wife and daughter. It was worth it. What a series. And we also get Lisbon and Jane getting closer romantically.

Such a shame that season 7 will be the last one. I'm going to miss it!
