    One needs to hone in on the performers to find reasons to stay engaged, because the plots and premises of Criminal Minds are worn thin as filaments by this point.

    First of all, I think it's hilarious that no one even bothers to review this rubbish.

    This show is...about what? Oh - right. It's about syndication. They avoid plot arcs because most network viewers aren't smart enough for plot arcs.

    If a cinder block ever falls on your head, this is a great show to watch. If you can't count above 10, this is a great show to watch.

    Oh and here's a spoiler: I can't tell the difference between this show, NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles, CSI, CSI Miami, or CSI New York. Don't watch all of them, or your small brain may become confused. They're all the same. They're shot in poorly lit rooms. The labs they use are always dark. Does anyone really work in a dark lab? Don't you need to see in a lab? I guess they're not going for reality.

They should do something to refresh this show, or finish it before it start to decrease in quality radically. I really do not want to be negative, but I honestly feel the show lost it's edge somewhere. Full Review »

    This show is one of the best things that has ever been graced upon our screens, the story lines are amazing and the acting is one of the bestThis show is one of the best things that has ever been graced upon our screens, the story lines are amazing and the acting is one of the best I have ever seen. 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. However, some episodes may be a little bit gruesome, but that is highly rare.

    If you do not watch this, please tune in and you will realize what the hype is about, with 33,000,000 average viewers, Criminal Minds is a huge hit, and deserving.
