On DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is the Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Simon Baker as THE MENTALIST: The Complete Sixth Season.
This season Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) are investigating who has been dead for years. Being led into Red John’s trap the list of suspects begins to dwindle. It is when he finds Lisbon that other clues emerge that sends the investigation in another direction.
Now innocent people are in danger when the list is taken. And if the CBI didn’t have enough problems, there are being bugged by a private investigator who also wants answers about their investigation.
The Red John investigation comes to a harrowing end as the closer they get, the more victims there are and Jane comes face to face with insanity. Two years passes and now the FBI wants Jane’s help, the minute he returns to the United States, officials grab him until he agrees.
Going under cover in a commune, his job is to find Grace (Amanda Righetti) but there are other cases Jane solves along the way. This doesn’t stop the inevitable as Jane must finally tell Lisbon how he feels.
With everything they have been through, will it be enough?
FINAL WORD: Baker as Jane continually puts in solid performances for ever episode. Playing a consultant for the CBI (California Bureau of Investigation), he isn’t actually an officer. Once a hack of a psychic medium, he does manage to work with police in the Red John case. What Baker portrays is a man who has a gift for finding bad guys and fans love it. Now in Season Six, Baker has the character of Jane down pat, especially when it comes to finding Red John. The first eight episodes are fantastic! It is the following episodes that change as Jane must decide who he trusts.
Tunney as Grace once again leads the CBI team. I actually find it funny when her character gets a tad annoyed by Jane’s antics yet there is a trust between these two. Righetti’s character deals with much more than a case load trying to also have a personal life. I have to say that I’m a fan of this character! She is strong, solid and that makes her character believeable.
Other cast include: Tim Kang as Kimball Cho, Owain Yoeman as Wayne Rigsby, Rockmond Dunbar as Dennis Abbot and Emily Swallow as Kim Fischer with guest stars Malcolm McDowell as Bret Stiles and Kevin Corrigan as Bob Kirkland.
