The Mentalist: Season 2 - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
FROM the mind of Bruno Heller, the creator of Rome, and Smallville director Chris Long, follow the continuing adventures of CBI consultant Patrick Jane as he embarks on a series of crime solving quests, with the DVD release of The Mentalist: The Complete Second Season on November 8, 2010, courtesy of Warner Home Video.
Emmy® nominee Simon Baker returns as Patrick Jane in Season Two of last year’s top-rated new drama, The Mentalist. As an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), notorious for his lack of protocol, Jane’s got a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes with his razor sharp skills of observation.
The team are often at odds with Jane, and all agree that he is a loose cannon but they can’t help admiring his charm and knack for clearing cases. With a little more edge and a lot more office dynamics than your average consultant, the California Bureau of Investigation’s supersleuth solves case after case like a cat among the procedural pigeons!
Season two of The Mentalist follows the CBI team as they investigate into a number of mysterious cases including; the death of a prominent State Senators intern, the kidnapping of a wealthy California heiress and the murder of a tutor; which leads to a series of twists and unexpected turns.
Things don’t stop there as the season continues with Jane and the CBI investigating the Visualize Self-Realization Centre, a cult-like religious group that maybe connected to the murder of a major media corporation’s CEO.
All the while following the trail of clues that leads Jane ever closer to his psychopathic nemesis Red John.
The Mentalist: The Complete Second Season features a stunning cast with Simon Baker (Patrick Jane), Robin Tunney (Teresa Lisbon) and Tim Kang (Kimball Cho).
The DVD release features all 23 episodes, as well as 12 gripping ‘The art of Mentalism featurettes’.
Catch the brand new series 3 of The Mentalist on Fridays at 8pm on Channel Five.
