"Criminal Minds" returned for its seventh season in 2011-2012, with a fresh set of disturbing and violent crimes to be solved by the FBI's elite Bahavorial Analysis Unit (BAU) and its ecclectic collection of agents. A highlight of the season was the return of profiler Emily Prentiss "from the dead", with emotional ramifications for the whole team.

The show continues to thrive on its crime-of-the-week format, as the BAU races the clock to identify and stop a violent killer or killers while saving victims. Clever plots continue to take unusual twists and turns. As in past seasons, the spotlight shifts from episode to episode among the actors in an outstanding ensemble cast, giving each a chance to lead on a case. This season has featured increased insight into the personal lives of the characters. One member of the team gets a girlfriend, another gets a marriage proposal, a third is haunted by an old case, and a fourth decides to leave the BAU. A senior supervisor goes to pieces on the job. The extended season-ending cliffhanger will have long-time fans on the edges of their seats, as the whole team is put in danger during a violent hostage standoff during a bank robbery.

The Seventh Season of "Criminal Minds" is highly recommended to its fans for its consistent delivery of solid, scary stories and good to excellent acting by its cast.

I love this show. It's just something about it, which keeps me tuning in every Wednesday night for a brand new episode. Due to the subject at hand it's NOT the show for everybody, but if you are a fan of psychological thriller's this is the show for you.

"Criminal Minds" will challenge your mind every episode. It shows what it is like to get into the mind of serial killers, and with every episode we get drama, mystery, and action. These cases are twisted and eerie, and most of the time what you think is going happen, doesn't. Every show literally has me on the edge of my seat.

Pros: 1.The writing is superb
2. Every character is well defined
3. Great acting
4. Compelling cases

Cons: 1.There is none really, unless you count the season ending cliffhanger.

I won't be giving away any spoilers for those who haven't seen it, but "criminal minds" isn't like any other show on television. I highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed.

I won't go into depth of why I like this show and the synopsis of the episodes, but this review is just for the special features of the Season 7 DVD. And I'm not sure about Season 6 or the Season 5 DVD, but I know Season 7 does have subtitles. Oddly enough, it doesn't have closed captioning. While I was going through the DVDs to find the exact special features I was starting to get let down by the lack of commentaries showing up. I was hoping it wasn't a typo, but we do get two episodes with commentary. Weirdly, "It Takes a Village" and "Hit/Run" I sure would have gotten a commentary, but alas, no. And I do wanna say that most (if not, all) of the special features of subtitled, too. Which, is always a plus. Good job, CBS DVD!Read more ›

I find it difficult to believe that there are so many quality television shows on the air these days. For so long it felt like there was nothing to watch. Now I find myself torn between shows appearing on opposing channels at the same time or find the DVR overloaded with shows I've missed. This is one of the reasons that shows being released on DVD at somewhat affordable prices are doing so well right now. And one show that continues to remain a quality series is CRIMINAL MINDS.

For those who have never seen the series (or who missed when I've spoken of previous seasons) the show revolves around a group of FBI profilers who are sent around the country to help law enforcement agencies apprehend serial criminals. Some cases involve rape, others arson but for the most part they seek out serial killers. The statistic that at any one time there are up to 80 serial killers walking around at one time is scary. The thought that there is actually a group like this seeking them out should help you sleep at night.

There isn't one single character that stands out among this ensemble piece but while the focus may change from one to another with each episode Thomas Gibson as Agent Aaron Hotchner is the focal point. The leader of the team has gone through some serious problems in the past (one serial killer murdered his wife for revenge) and this year we witness him adapting to being a single parent. But while Hotchner's life is seen so are the lives of the other cast members. And the series opens with the effects of what happened at the end of season 6 when the group thought agent Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) was killed.

Agent Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore) has been using his own time to seek out the killer responsible for Prentiss' death unofficially.
