C is for Criminal Minds #AtoZChallenge

CFor the A to Z Challenge, I am sticking with my normal blogging topics – Monday (parenting), Wednesday (Quotes) and Thursday (writing/publishing). But for the rest of the days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I have picked the theme of TV shows.

Criminal-MindsToday the letter is C which is for the CBS show Criminal Minds. This FBI-procedural drama premiered in the fall of 2005 and is on its tenth season. The series follows a team of profilers from the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis unit. The seven person team focuses on profiling the criminal who often is a serial killer. The show can be very graphic and delves into a horrific side of life. It so disturbed one cast member quit the show after the first two seasons.

With its disturbing scenes, I can’t pinpoint why I like this show. (I haven’t been watching it from the beginning but did caught up on all episodes.) I think it is fascinating how they pick up on all these little clues about human behavior. And I love the characters – Dr. Spencer Reid, Derek Morgan, and Penelope Garcia. This is a show I would recommend – if it won’t provide you nightmares.

    Love the show. My dad got me addicted to it.

  2. First of all I did not know it was on for ten years. Like you I can’t say why I like it, but DH finds it to disturbing to enjoy. Since I don’t stick around for Star Trek, I guess it balances out.

    Congrats on working on the A to Z Challenge.

  3. I enjoyed earlier episodes, but I found it getting too dark for me, and then there was the fiasco with the female members of the cast, but I did see it again recently and it seemed to have bounced back again :). I watched an ep or two of the spinoff and I quite liked it.

  4. I want to like this show – I certainly love some of the characters, Penelope Garcia being just about perfect, but I find some of their plots just too disturbing to watch and I have to turn off. It has to be good writing if it can wig me that much.

    I used to love watching it Criminal Minds. Then we cancelled cable & hardly watch any live tv. I will have to see if they have it on Netflix!

  6. Not seen this show – but it sounds interesting, thanks for sharing. I’m enjoying the A-Z-ing so far – good fun (I’m number 590 on the list)

    I haven’t watched this, but I bet it has awesome characters if it’s been around for 10 seasons. I’ll have to check it out on Hulu or something.
