What to Watch: ‘The Mentalist’

By Taylor LaTray Posted May 25, 2012

A forensic comedy about a man who uses psychic abilities to help solve murders has been a popular series since it first came out in 2008. The main actor Simon Baker as Patrick Jane was also a Golden Globe Nominee. Although Jane is not an officer of the law he uses his skills as a psychic medium to solve crimes. He solves these crimes for his own humor; hoping to one day take down the man who killed his family, Red John.

Jane is a spontaneous character who tricks people into somehow revealing evidence. Secretly, he seeks revenge on a murderer and goes against the investigative team he works with on several occasions. It’s hard to say that Jane is a good guy or a bad guy so we’ll leave it up to you to decide.

You can watch ‘The Mentalist’ on CBS Thursdays at 10 p.m.
