You’re probably thinking: not another police series! Yet, The Mentalist is different from the rest because of its surprising plot twists and the charming character of Patrick Jane, played brilliantly by Simon Baker. A high-quality drama series you can’t afford to miss!
Teens and adults
Patrick Jane, a successful former “mentalist” or psychic medium, starts working for the California Bureau of Investigation in order to find the serial killer who murdered his wife and daughter two years earlier. When Jane publically humiliates serial killer Red John on a TV show, the latter takes it as a challenge. This sparks off a cat-and-mouse game with no apparent end in sight.
The protagonist of The Mentalist is an odd character. For example, he has a habit of placing a cup of tea in the houses of victims. But his rather bizarre behavior also has its benefits: it allows him to get closer to the truth and solve mysteries more easily. Occasionally, he dares to hypnotize witnesses, suspects, and even members of his team. He also has a blatant disregard for protocol.
In a new season of The Mentalist, Patrick Jane becomes obsessed with finding Red John. He comes closer than ever to discovering the true identity of this serial killer. When Homeland Security and the FBI team up with the CBI to work on the case, the fat hits the fire. The fifth season includes the iconic 100th episode!
Patrick Jane and the CBI get closer to catching the elusive serial killer Red John. Jane has narrowed down the list of suspects to seven people, confirmed by the murderer himself. When the CBI is forced to halt to its activities, Patrick Jane, Teresa Lisbon and the rest of the team start working with the FBI, where they are given a string of crimes to solve. Full-on suspense!
Mastermind Patrick Jane returns in the final season. He hasn’t worked for the past two years and has been living in isolation since giving up the search for Red John, the serial killer who murdered his wife and daughter. Patrick Jane and Teresa Lisbon have finally declared their love for each other. They both work for the FBI now, and a new serial killer crosses their path…
