The Menatlist is an amazing show! If you're the kind of person who likes mysteries and instense moments, you'll definetly love this show! There is some shooting and language, but really not as much compared to Bones or anything. Thanks for reading! :)
The show the mentalist does not send out a positive message to people as it is mainly about murder and Jane's own private case of finding red John a serial killer. The show gives children a message that revenge is a good idea. The mentalist does contain some violent scenes but nothing like criminal minds! There is quite a lot of language in the mentalist although I do not find in offense parents may not like to expose there children to it. There is the at least one scene in each episode where alchol is consumed and tobacco is mentioned.
I can honestly say that The MENTALIST is my favorite show on television! The way Jane solves cases (through the use of observation) is a good way to get kids to think and observe the world around them. His sense of humor is also hilarious! Although there is violence, there's not as much as, say, the CSIs (my other favorite shows). HIGHLY recommend this for anybody 14 and up!
Perfect for older teens but not for younger kids or tweens
It doesn't matter what you all say, but i think lisbon and her team are great role models, they are all smart, beautiful, sophisticated women who have a great life in what they do.nYes it might have a lot of violence and some sex but thats alright because the good bits outweigh the bad

Great TV show!
I love this TV show! I think it discusses real life issues, it's not like this stuff doesn't happen in real life. I realize that the murders can seem brutal, but my little brother (who's 9) and my sister (who's 11) love the show. I think you might have to be a little mature to understand and comprehend everything. But, the charactors are awesome! Go Simon Baker!
Great show, Patrick Jane is not the greatest role model, but he's definately likeable. Some episodes are WAY intense (some of the Red John ones) but some episodes aren't bad for the more weary ones. I love this show, but because of some of the Psychic stuff, I have to skip out on some episodes. Other than that, it is a great show.

I think this show is great for kids! It’s one of the few crime dramas that doesn’t have much violence. Swearing is rare and there is only one or two episodes I can think of that had any sexual themes. I’ve been watching this show almost from when it started (when I was 11) and have scene every episode. I think the CBI agents are awesome role models for kids, and will get them interested in pursuing law enforcement as a career. I recommend The Mentalist for mature 9-11 year olds and any kid 12+.

VERY awesome show
i am 12 and i love this show, but it can be bad at times. like the ebisodes said that they were going to have trouble with "country culb cougars" and in that episode it showed 2 women in a bed together. but it is a wonderful show! it just needs a few minor changes. but maybe just for 12+.
The mentalist is a show about a man (Patrick Jane) trying to get revenge on a serial killer who killed his wife and daughter. Probably doesn't sound so good, but in reality there is some goodness to it. For example Patrick Jane is bright and inspires teens to use their surroundings to get answers. It is very fascinating to see how Jane solves each case. Even though Jane is trying to get revenge he learns that revenge isn't the answer. This show has strong violence, drinking as a form of stress relieving, and some sexual content. Parents should know their child before allowing them to watch!
Mentalist is that bad if a show. First before I start my review I want to talk about what this show is about. It is about a guy who is very smart and one day he gets caught doing a crime and has to work for some cops that solve murder cases. There is this villain named red John who you don't see yet and the main character wants revenge because he killed his family. I not k ow what's wrong with violonce 24 is worse and they have a smaller rating but T times the mentalist usually has shootings at the end and people get drunk sometimes and get Into fights. Drinking and use of drugs ain't really a prob. Onetime s you may see a character drinking some beer or wind but they don't get to drunk. The sow is actully very funny when you get to know James (the main character). Out of all the show is great for old kids and older.
