Criminal Minds is an American drama about a team of seven FBI agents who profile criminal behaviour in order to catch them. They deal with murders often including gruesome details such as torture and rape; this series is not suitable for young children.
As a Psychology studet I found Criminal Minds to be an exciting and insightful series. The detail of description into how criminal minds operate, how profilers work and how effetive this can be in helping the police is immence and incredibly accurate. The writers and director have obvious knowledge of criminal psychology and police enforcement and it is my opinion that they have done extensive research into this subject. I believe the story lines are exciting and really grab the audience's attention. They keep you guessing throughout whilst providing useful information for those that are interested in how criminal minds work.
I also feel that the characters starring in this television series have been very well assigned. As the series goes on, we get to see a little about their personal lives and why they do the jobs they do. This provides a continuing story throughout the series; I feel that the audience can grow to love the characters of the FBI agents and want them to be safe when in dangerous situations.
I also think that the actors have been selected well, containing some typical stereotypes but each is played incredibly well. Unit Chief Aaron Hotchner and Senior Supervisory Special Agent Jason Gideon are my particular favourite charactors as well as the actors who play them - Thomas Gibson and Mandy Patinkin. They have an amazing ability to keep a very specific facial expression that invites questions about what they are thinking and feeling whilst showing intelligents and inquizitivity. I also really enjoy watching Matthew Gray Gubler playing Dr. Spencer Reid, a young agent with an identic memory and an IQ of 180. Anything he reads or sees is forever in his memory and he also remembers te majority of what he hears. Dr. Reid is incredibly ignorant to the 'normal' behaviours of humans when it comes to things such as dating and how to talk to women but he knows almost everything their is to know about catching criminals through their behaviour. I find his character to be entertaing and loveable.
