The Red Mile

Series 3 - Episode 18 The Red Mile



The Mentalist is a funny old thing. When you think it’s just a likeable, quirky but deeply formulaic cop show, it delivers a completely unexpected emotional punch. Here it comes in some touching final scenes.
This story is typically murky and silly; a hedge fund manager is found dead with his throat slit. Then his body is stolen on the way to the mortuary. The man’s family, including his mother-in-law (Frances Conroy, the mother in Six Feet Under), are hiding something very big, according to Patrick Jane (Simon Baker).
It’s a featherlight tale, but there are some good moments with the show’s best character, that deadpan straight-arrow detective, Cho.


The agents track down the killer of a man who believed he was abducted by aliens, and the case becomes more complicated when his body is stolen from the coroner's van. Van Pelt takes time off from the investigation to shop for a wedding dress. Crime drama, starring Simon Baker and Amanda Righetti.
