The Mentalist: The Complete Second Season DVD Review

The Mentalist: The Complete Second Season DVD Review 

Synopsis: California Bureau of Investigation consultant Patrick Jane (Simon Baker in his Emmy®-nominated role) has a blatant lack of protocol but is self-assured and driven. The former “psychic” uses his talent for seeing the clues everyone else misses to solve the most baffling crimes. But there’s more than crime that makes this season a must-see: Lisbon and Cho reveal hints about their troubled pasts. Violence fells one CBI boss, and the new boss seems more interested in authority than teamwork. And as the Van Pelt-Rigsby relationship heats up, it threatens to cool down their careers. Match wits with the hit series that balances nimble humor with dark thrills.

Review: The Mentalist has gone two seasons.  I typically don't get into shows until they've proven themselves with at least three seasons, but this one I made an exception for.  A few people that I know have recommended it to me over the past few years and with this DVD set I finally sat down and gave it a watch.  I have to say that I was very impressed.  The show is fun, whitty and engaging.

This DVD season is absolutely crammed tight with special features: "Art of a Mentalist": insights with executive producer/director Chris Long on making an episode, "Mentalism: A Subliminal Art: (11 pods with cast and producer):, The art of mind reading with Simon Baker, The art of suggestive imagery with Robin Tunney, Secrets of cognitive persuasion with Luke Jermay, The art of knowing secrets with Owain Yeoman, The art of hidden objects with Amanda Righetti, Secrets of the pendulum with Luke Jermay, The art of suggestive imagery with Tim Kang, The art of intuitive deduction with Bruno Heller, Secrets of interactive mind control with Luke Jermay, The art of muscle reading with Amanda Righetti, Secrets of ideomotor manipulation with Luke Jermay and finally 10 deleted scenes.  WOW.
