This spin off of the acclaimed Criminal Minds series is just as strong, interesting and powerful as the original. The only complaint this fan has is it ended way to soon! And on a "What happened?" Note that will probably never be answered. Each character had great potential and the chemistry between actors left you wanting more. The extras are for technical fans: those who like the "why" behind a show. The deleted scenes are self-explanatory why they were cut, but the alternative way "Beth" (Janeane Garofalo) was introduced to the team was less shocking than having her all of the sudden show up like she does in the first episode. Forest Whitaker is great as "Sam" a person struggling with his faith, demons and the horrors he sees every day. Michael Kelly ("Prophet") could have been developed more, but what you see is **very** nice! Would love to have explored the why he was how he was. Also, Matt Ryan ("Mick")never fully gets to explore his character....wonderful nuggets of information into his personality and background tease. The only gray spot is Beau Garrett ("Gina"). While, a lovely actress, her character is flat and seems to add nothing to the show. Please Criminal Minds writers: bring this show back, and if you don't, please do another cross over show like the introduction episode (also found on disc one)!! We want our Red Cell Team! And give Kirsten Vangsness more screen time!

If you buy this series don't watch the last episode without knowing there will not be an ending. It was a "to be continued" episode and there is no second season.

Why do the networks do this to a show or any other show with the hopes it will gain a audience of interest witch in some cases it does and then pull it off the air just when it looks like it might show potential? This is nothing short of stupidity on the part of the network.They need to realize that it's their audience of viewers that make or break a show and not how deep they can pack their pocket with cash!

I am a big fan of the original show. (I own almost all the DVD collections.) My only major objection is their absurd handling of key female characters. (Why mess with success?)

So I was really interested in this spinoff . . . I really wanted to like it. I really tried to like it. Believe me, I don't usually give TV shows this much effort. Therefore, I was genuinely surprised at what a disappointment this was. Eventually, my biggest hope was that it would be cancelled before it started dragging down the reputation of the original.

As I see it, there were two major problems, and they both result from this attempting to be a spinoff of the original. First, the very premise for whole show was weak at best. Why would a "team" like this be needed? Most of the cases it dealt with could be just as easily handled by decent local authorities or already existing special forces, such as SWAT teams. If it gets more complicated than that, you call in the REAL Criminal Minds crew. I just could never believe that this group would even exist.

Second, if this group DID exist, why would THESE people be on it? Most of them seem so flawed, personally and/or professionally, that it is hard to believe they would have a job in law enforcement at all, let alone as part of some sort of elite force. Contrast that with the original Criminal Minds group in which the vast majority of characters seem eminently qualified at both a professional and personal level. In their case, their flaws make them more believable and interesting; the flaws don't define them as they do in this spinoff.

The bottom line: this seems like a story of a pretty week junior varsity group with one character from the original series tossed in occasionally to give it a shred of credibility. If you want entertainment, I think you'll enjoy re-watching episodes from the original series much more.

First, I love Criminal Minds. I think we're on Season 8, and I still love it. When I saw this, and I saw that the season ended early, I was a bit leery. I bought the pilot episode and...never even thought to watch another. No desire what so ever.

I could go into how each actor/actress tried to stretch their piece of dialogue into something poignant and meaningful, but I would write pages of utter failure. At one point I thought I was watching the overacting of CSI: Miami cast impersonating a Criminal Minds episode. It sucks that they dragged the character of Penelope into this, but actresses got to eat too, I suppose.

If you're thinking of buying this because you also loved Criminal Minds, do yourself a favor and give this one a pass. It'll probably be free on Prime or Hulu or Netflix soon enough that you can gag on how bad it is then...for "free."

On paper it sounded great: a Criminal Minds spin-off with a creepy Oscar winner at the lead, and a very decent cast of good actors.
The real thing was appalling.
At first it was difficult to pin out if the problem was script or acting. Finally I would settle for the cardboard screenplay and poor direction.
When the CRIMINAL MINDS series is about intelligent set-ups, subtle dialogue, and careful but realistic environments, the spin-off entered with characters out of a comic book, from the sweaty profiler done by Whitaker, always with a careful clad "underground" getup, to his co-workers, the guy with the cutout gloves, the girl with the laptop, and their need to repeat every clue out loud as if they needed to make a point that we should listen.
On the pilot it was a blue van, when the kid witness is "persuaded" by Whitaker to remember what happened, he says "a blue van". Then we get the flashback to se the van. Then every member of the team repeats the word as if a mantra just to establish that is a "good" clue.
Dialogue needs serious work here, and so is delivery, which end up like posing and speaking.
No suspense, no way to relate to the inner team's stories, which seem forced at the most.
A must skip.
