The Mentalist‘s main character, Patrick Jane, is a charming and suave man with a brain reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes. The television series chronicles a police department located in San Francisco that uses Jane as a consultant to solve murders. His acute powers of observation and “magic” tricks help solve crimes without forensic evidence and are a delight to watch. His team gels together midway through the first season when he forms a true partnership with team captain Teresa Lisbon. This show can be added to your binge watching list for the winter months! Throughout the series you can see character flashback episodes, learn how Jane sharpened his skills growing up as a Carney, and best of all watch all the gag reels on the six seasons which are available on DVD at OWL.
