A detective who can read minds—sort of. The Mentalist, starring Simon Baker, is a popular television show for three seasons. He does posses acute observation skills and uses them to solve cases for the California Bureau of Investigation. Season 3 of The Mentalist finds Patrick Jane solving mysteries at locations including a racetrack, driving range, gold country and a mixed martial arts match.
“The Red Ponies,” episode of The Mentalist treated viewers to an episode where Patrick Jane had to solve a mystery at the racetrack. The episode contained lots of humorous moments, especially when Cho and Rigsby made fun of their endless chases from motels. The race track proved to be a difficult place for Patrick to solve the mystery. He had to navigate the world of jockeys and horses. I thought he was risking Jane’s life when he put her on the horse, but this season he has seemed more in control and not always taking risks like before. I like that season three developed Patrick Jane’s character by revealing his past and showing us his human side. He is always in control of the situation, no matter where the weekly mysteries take him. Which location the show featured, would you find the most challenging to investigate?
