Coming up on M-Net is a selection of good series:

Mentalist IV (Sundays at 22h30): The drama series is about Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for using his razor-sharp skills of observation and psychological manipulation to solve serious crimes. Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned. No-nonsense CBI senior agent Teresa Lisbon was initially reluctant to accept Jane into her unit. However, though she occasionally reprimands him for his theatrics and lack of boundaries, she acknowledges Jane's usefulness and finds him intriguing.

Newsroom I (starts January 27 at 19h30) follows the quixotic mission of a staff dedicated to doing the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and tangled personal relationships.

Royal Pains III (starts January 20 at 18h30). In the exciting fourth season of Royal Pains, Dr. Hank Lawson embarks on a fresh start with his medical practice and separates from his brother, Evan, who also starts his own venture. As Divya attempts to reconcile the brothers, HankMed teams up once more in the face of a Hamptons' emergency.
