DVD/Blu-ray info: Season one of THE MENTALIST announced.

Warner will be releasing season one of THE MENTALIST on Sept 22nd, 2009.

“A mentalist is a master manipulator of thought and behavior.” The mentalist is Patrick Jane (Simon Baker in an acclaimed performance), a celebrity psychic whose wife and child are viciously murdered by an elusive serial killer called Red John. Devastated, Patrick admits his paranormal act is fake, renounces his earlier life and uses his astonishing skills of observation and analysis – talents that made him appear psychically gifted – to bring killers to justice. At crime scenes across California, Patrick now helps an elite team of detectives break their toughest cases. But no matter how many criminals he catches, Patrick never forgets his central goal: Find Red John. And bring him down.

I am torn on this show. I think that Simon Baker is pretty enjoyable, but the writing is sub-par. What could be an entertaining show often flails about…at least in my opinion.
