1 Probably the best show on TV in the last 10 years. The characters are interesting and the villians are too. Drawbacks: It suffers from something I call Law and Order syndrome. Once you've seen between 50 or 100 episodes you seen all of them. Of course the details change but the basic plot twists repeat themselves. It gets stale. The characters are a bit too stereotypical. Reid is the nerd, Morgan is the jock, Penelope is the insecure large woman, etc. A little character development will go a looooong way toward keeping a show interesting in the years to come. -- Submitted By: (ExTVLover) on May 21, 2013, 11:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Criminal Minds has come close to Jumping the shark/Boning the fish on several occasions, finally doing it successfully with the 'tornado whisperer' episode this year. The entire season has been 'cut and paste by the numbers', no surprises, the solving of cases far more dependent upon good luck than by good detective/profiling work. Too many leaps in logic, something the producers and showrunners have avoided in the past. The ratings remain strong, but it is no longer 'must see' for me. -- Submitted By: (alfredodedarc) on March 5, 2012, 1:10 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I think I may have found a show made within the last ten years that meets with my approval. Interesting... -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on June 30, 2011, 12:58 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

6 @stephanie, save some for me. he's jummy this show is a much-needed change from the csi-shows in that it focuses on the criminal and what moves him, rather than the angle of a bullet. unfortunately the more i see of it, the more i feel an hour is just not enough time to 'build up a case', especially not if so much of the story revolves around character-motivation. because of this time-limit all criminals turn out to be rather one-dimensional, having one big motivation (like:'my mommy left me, and now i kill everyone who reminds me of her'), which the team has to uncover. instead of needing to find 'the bullet' they race to find 'that one character quip', repeating all those things that irritated me on csi. it doesn't help that this show is up to it's armpits in pseudo-science (another thing i hate on csi), only this time it's 'completely accurately predicting what some psychopath will do next', instead of the much-mocked 'magical picture-enhancement software'. -- Submitted By: (selena) on January 20, 2010, 7:11 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

8 Love this show. It's intelligent and much more superior to the CSI franchise. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on July 22, 2009, 4:28 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
9 A lot of people disregard Criminal Minds as one of the many variations of the CSI franchise craze. However, in many, many ways, Criminal Minds is vastly superior to any of the CSI's and any of the other variations out there. First, the cast is amazing. They are all great actors and entirely believable as well as compatible. The writing on the show is excellent. While the time frame of an episode is always going to be an issue with crimefighting shows (I mean, there are serial killer investigations that go on for years, even now, still unsolved, and these guys do it in a matter of hours, maybe days at the most) there is a lot of credibility and believability to the resources of the cast and the capabilities of behavioral analysis. Only once have I seen a character (Hotchner) spout off a "show-offy" type of behavioral summary of a person. Lastly, the filming of the show is engaging and very akin to storytelling. CSI's violent re-creation cam of how a crime took place or highlighting details of a bullet penetration for instance, is recounted in horrific graphic detail, with massively gross sound effects, jarring camera angles, and a highly unnecessary filter. Criminal Minds has a more, I feel, interesting way of having one of the agents talk-through a crime as the commitment of the crime is replayed around them. The show just has a lot more of its elements in place and has yet to become a parody of itself like CSI has. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 22, 2009, 1:05 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
