CSI, NCIS and Bones are just sloppy and boring compared to the amazing writing and fantastic acting that if shown in Criminal Minds. All the story lines will have you on the edge of your seat and you and your family will become addicted extremely to this amazing show. You also learn bucket loads from this show, from behavior to science and then just general facts. This is also amazing for teaching your children to be safe, in the local park to online.

The two-part episode was really great, and it made me think that more of their strong plot lines should have been two-part episodes so they could make them a little deeper. As one of the season 1 characters steps out, they replace her with another who plays almost the exact same role, just less prominently. It seemed a little lazy.

So, a little better than season 1, but still just average. The quotes each episode are still very wooden. The episodes are still almost all the same basic structure without much change up. If I'd been watching the show from the beginning I'd have never expected 10 seasons out of it based on what I've seen so far.… Full Review »
