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.

Series Finale

This show needs to be renewed simply because the re boot was spectacular and the writing for the 7th season was so intelligent. The ratings for this show surpassed shows that were renewed already. Renew and pick it up for another network.

Loved this show….Loved Saving Grace and Medium also. Networks decide instead to have fat butted reality shows…..

while the story lines were getting a little tired……..still one of the most entertaining shows….some new writers and some guest appearances could have kept this series going for another 2 years… too bad……

We still can not believe it! The entire cast was truly awesome! Please RENEW!

I hope the t.v. stations are reading our comments! They NEED to renew The Mentalist. Nothing else on t.v. is as good, and not worth watching.
