the mentalist past TV show

TV show description:
Patrick Jane (Simon Baker), a consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), pays attention to the details. As he stands at a crime scene, he shifts his gaze over the particulars that others often miss and mentally sorts through the information. His surveillance skills have repeatedly helped the CBI solve serious crimes.

He’s well known within the organization for his observation skills, as well as his past scam work when he pretended to be a psychic medium. What his fellow agents don’t know is that Patrick’s intense dedication to solving crimes stems from the losses he’s suffered in his personal life.

Patrick’s crime-solving methods are unconventional to be sure and Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) is opposed to him joining her unit. It’s not always easy for her to admit when Patrick is right but she’s always quick to criticize when he crosses the line.

The other members of her team include Kimball Cho (Tim Kang), Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman), and rookie Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti). They’re all united in their opinion of Patrick. While he is reckless, Patrick is both dedicated and skilled at solving cases. The proof is in the details.

The Mentalist deserves to be renewed and given a fighting chance in a different time slot on a different day. As everyone knows, during football season, the show doesn’t start until 10:30 p.m. and runs to 11:30 p.m. For those people who must rise early on Monday to get to work, watching the show at this late hour is not attractive. Why not return it to its old time slot—10:oo on Thursday where it worked fine. If it doesn’t perform there, then revisit the cancellation issue. But cancelling this show because of poor ratings on Sunday nights at 10:00 is not fair. Try the Amazing Race at 10:00 on Sundays and see how that does. If it doesn’t do well, then cancel that loser show and leave The Mentalist alone.

The show is great. I can’t believe it would even be considered to be cancelled. The only thing that would be better is if we could get the CBI back. Please keep it. PLEASE!!!!!

The only thing that hinders The Mentalist’s viewers from watching the episodes is CBS!! They constantly air it late, don’t air it at all w/o any notice, air re-runs mid-season..

I LOVE, love, love The Mentalist – despite all of the hoops I have to jump through to watch it.. Please don’t cancel it!
