  • Summary: "Mentalist, noun. Someone who uses mental acuity, hypnosis and/or suggestion. A master manipulator of thoughts and behavior."

    The Mentalist tells the tale of Patrick Jane, who is employed as an independent consultant working with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to solve
    crimes. He had been making a living as a psychic, and he would assist the police on cases -- until his life changed when he lost the two most important people in his life to one of those serial killers he was helping track. He now uses his refined observation skills to help the CBI solve cases. He works with Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon, Agents Kimball Cho and Wayne Rigsby and the rookie Grace Van Pelt.

    The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television.

    I have watched this twice and I can't believe a show so bad can be in its 3rd season. The script seems written by a talented high schooler and the acting by the local theater group. Expand

    I have to agree with the previous reviewer: this season went from bad to worseâ
