Surprise! CBS Picks Up The Mentalist, Cancels The Crazy Ones And 4 Others image
The Mentalist or The Good Wife? Thatís the way most network experts pitched CBSí Sunday night dilemma. They could either renew the well-liked, moderately-rated crime procedural that does very well in syndication and overseas or they could renew the award-winning, moderately-rated legal drama. It was supposedly one or the other.

Hey CBS, Please Don't Cancel The Mentalist image
For a long time, The Mentalist was the best procedural on television. Then suddenly, it wasnít. The balance between whimsical and psychologically exciting mystery of the week episodes and serious, borderline disturbing Red John episodes swung sharply from the former to the latter, and with that transition, much of the what made the show so special sorta drifted away.

Who Is Red John? The Mentalist's Suspects Point To An Answer image
If episode titles and cursory plot descriptions are any indication, we seem to be two weeks ago from finally knowing the identity of The Mentalist serial killer Red John. Whether Jane will straight up murder the bastard or have him arrested is unclear at this point. Regardless, the clock is ticking until we finally have answers to the primary question: who murdered our main characterís family?

The Mentalist Season 6: A Look Back And A Look Ahead image
Upon first glance, the format of The Mentalist isnít a whole lot different from other procedurals. Each season contains a majority of bottle, mystery of the week episodes interspersed with a few attempts at catching the big bad. What sets The Mentalist apart, however, is that the so-called big bad has been the same killer since the first episode of the first season.

Hey Procedurals, Stop Casting Your Most Famous Guest Star As The Killer image
I watch shows like The Americans, Parenthood and Game Of Thrones to be surprised. I watch procedurals when I want the familiar. Unfortunately, thereís one thing thatís a little too familiar about random episodes of procedurals: killers who are way the hell more famous than every other random guest star.

The Mentalist Adds Henry Ian Cusick As A Guest Star In Season 5 image
In its four previous seasons, The Mentalist has dealt with criminals from many different backgrounds and with all kinds of different agendas. What the show does not do all that often is introduce potential criminals with multi-episode story arcs. In Season 5, Lost alum Henry Ian Cusick is joining the cast for a special three-episode guest stint that may or may not leave the man with a criminal rap sheet.

The Mentalist: The Complete Fourth Season [DVD Review] image
At its best, The Mentalist balances the comfortable formula of a police procedural with the intellectual aggression of televisionís most brilliant mind. It offers viewers a mystery, a generic, standard whodunit they could just as easily encounter on a dozen other shows and gives its title sleuth room to work his magic. Through fascinating mental tricks and unorthodox schemes, Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) always sniffs out the guilty party, though ultimately his or her identity is far less interesting than how he discerns it.
