After some success on TVs THE GUARDIAN, Simon Baker brings his trademark cocky charm back to TV with this highly rated CBS procedural. Baker stars as Patrick Jane, an independent detective whose observational skills are highly prized by the California Bureau of Investigation. As much as his colleagues--Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney), Kimball Cho (Tim Kang), Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman), and Grace Van Pelt (Amanda Righetti)--value his results, they are less excited by his unorthodox approach to crime solving. However, Janes sexy swagger hides a painful past: his wife and daughter were murdered by a man known as Red John, and though he pursues other criminals, this serial killer is always on his mind. THE MENTALIST boasts fascinating cases and a strong supporting cast, but unlike CBSs other popular crime dramas CSI and CRIMINAL MINDS, this is a one-man show that gets its spark from Bakers performance. This release includes the series first season.
