    I watch "The Mentalist" mostly because of Patrick Jane. He's just an awesome, funny, and clever guy. His past also made me tune in again and again for the show, which has now become my favorite. But, yeah, Patrick Jane is definitely an amazing character.

    The show is awesome as far as I'm concerned.

    Anyone who likes Simon Baker in this should def. check out 'Sex and Death 101.' I just saw it and it was hilarious! Have fun!

    I think Jane is a very refreshing character because of his witty lines but I would say that the whole cast and the story line keeps me watching cuz of the unique storyline. It's not like any other cop show!

    I WATCH BECAUSE, I LIKE MYSTERY, ON THE SHOW I WATCHED LAST NIGHT, THE POKER GAME WAS FAKE. ONE POKER PLAYER HAD 4 KINGS, AND JANE HAD A ROYAL FLUSH, A ROYAL FLUSH HAD THE K OF HEARTS, SO THE OTHER MAN COULD NOT OF HAD 4 KINGS, AND ANY WAY A ROYAL FLUSH DOESN'T BEAT 4 OF A KIND. STILL LOVE THE SHOW. MY EMAIL IS MMEE26@HOTMAIL.COM. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WERE THINKING. GOOD SHOW NEVER MISS. THANK YOU MARIE

    His straight flush was Jack High. No King was involved. And a straight flush beats 4 kings.

    Well when I started watching The Mentalist it was mainly for Patrick Jane and his intriguing character. But now I watch it more for the whole cast, I think they fit nicely. Chos's dry humor really cracks me up sometimes, Lisbon's character is quite intriguing, too and I love her sarcastic comments. As for the storylines...well, they are sometimes quite boring. But it's always fun to watch how they solve the cases.

    Like the storyline and Jane's mental analytic skill, plus Van Pelt is very attractive.

    I'm a fairly new viewer and missed season 1 so bought it online, recently finished watching it and love the way the whole cast interact with each other, the humour is great and of course SB is rather nice so thats an added bonus ;-)

    You started the same way I did. I didn't originally watch the show in the first season either. I got the DVDs not long before the start of the second season and watched them, then started watching on TV with the second season.

    So why wasn't "the Red John story line" one of the choices? That is the main reason I watch. I like Jane's eccentric character, but it is not enough to keep my attention in most of the episodes that don't involve Red John.

    I used to watch it for Simon Baker's great acting and the Red John storyline, but now I only watch it for Simon Baker. To me, the Red John storyline ended with the season 3 finale. It was the perfect ending to the show, but it was greenlit for another 3 seasons at the last minute, so Bradley Whitford being an impostor makes no sense, and is just a lame excuse to keep the show going.

    I watch it only because of Jane, i mean the guy just played the freakin FBI like it was nothing,damn Jane is so good at what he does best and that is manipulating people. I just cant wait for the next episode and i hope the show will go one for like 10 seasons.
