As with the previous two seasons Patrick Jane (Simon
Baker)continues to help CBI (California Bureau of Investigation)as
they take on unusual cases too big for local law enforcement.
He also gets a little closer to his serial killer nemesis
Red John as he discovers that there might be a traitor within
CBI informing Red John allowing him to stay one step ahead
of Jane and the CBI team (Robin Tunney, the marvelously
dry Tim Kang, Owaine Yeoman, and the beautiful Amanda Righetti).
The stand-alone episodes allows Jane and the CBI team to
tackle a number of fascinating cases that are a puzzle to
the local police. During the season Jane and his team come
under the scrutiny of J.J. LaRoche (Pruitt Taylor Vince
of "Identity" fame)and must prove their innocence in the
murder of a suspect.***
Image & Sound:
The show receives a very nice, sharp looking transfer.
Colors and skin tones are accurate throughout and although
blacks are occasionally crushed and there are some minor
compression artifacts on the whole the regular DVD presentation
looks particularly fine.***
The 5.1 audio mix isn't quite as active as some--remember
this is a dialogue driven show with moments of action but
it is active enough.***
