34 of 35 people found the following review helpful By G. D. Williams on August 21, 2009
Format: DVD
Of the four seasons, this season may be the best. With more dark storylines, the series follow Rossi, Hotchner, Prentiss, Morgan, Reid, Jareau, and Garcia as they deal with the evil side of human nature and more of their own personal stories, connections, and demons.

The fourth season fleshes out these characters and their interdependence on each other. An excellent team takes time to build and bond. The season brings this to full circle, especially in the last few episodes where the plots begin to build toward an explosive climax in the season finale.

The promise of new life with Jennifer Jareau's baby boy is a subplot. As Jareau deals with motherhood, she faces her emotions and fears, especially as she contemplates her child and what the future may hold.

Some of the best episodes are-Minimal Loss with Luke Perry; Instincts and Memoriam which features Dr. Reid's memories of a murder from his childhood, Masterpiece with Jason Alexander, Soul Mates which gives love your neighbor a sinister twist; Roadkill which is a taut thriller with a surprise; Amplification features an analytical lecture from Reid as he is exposed to a deadly substance; and To Hell...And Back is the season finale with enough horror, disgust and death for a whole season. Death takes no holiday in this episode. Unfortunately, you will never look at that Christmas ham the same way after watching this episode.

This series is for mature minds. It is definitely not for younger children.

I am an avid watcher of the Criminal Minds series and I would have to say that this is the best season yet and it isn't even over with. It is not very often that one can say that every single episode was absolutely amazing. Although there was one episode which didn't meet up to the standards of the rest.
As for the rest of the season, thanks to amazing writers and directors, this show has managed to show me things I never thought possible. For example, I am used to seeing James Alexander as creepy, I think that was the whole point of George on Seinfield. But the character that Jason Alexander played was truly amazing, creepy in just the right way, but truly an unsub worthy of the team.
One shadow I do have about this season was the appearance of the character Jordan. At her first appearance and initial interaction with Morgan you believe that this character could uphold the standard that J.J., actress A.J. Cook, carries out in her performance. But sadly after the first spark, her performance is quite a disappoint. In fact, I usually watched the episode in hopes of avoiding her character all together. Perphaps I am just to fond of J.J.'s character and thought biasedly at seeing her go. But I don't doubt the relief I felt as seeing her return.
I can't wait to see the final shows of the season and I already plan on purchasing the DVD when it comes availble. I hightly recommend it to those looking for intrigue, humor and drama all in one show.

OMG the Season Four finale was fantastic. I am an absolute avid fan of Criminal Minds. I have Seasons 1-3 on DVD. I can't wait for Season Four to come out. I can't tell you why if you haven't watched this season I don't want to ruin anything for you.I am already excited about Season Five. If you like FBI/Profiler type searies then this one is by far the best and a must have for any serious collector. If you are a new collector or have been living in a cave somewhere and never heard of Criminal Minds please see Seasons 1-3 don't just watch Season Four they must all be watched to fully appreciate the chracters and the plots.

I have been an avid fan of "Criminal Minds" since it began. "Criminal Minds" is one of the few shows that is so well written. Story lines and characters reel you in to wanting more and more. Season 4 does not disappoint! This is a series that I never get tired of watching.

I am an avid watcher and fan of "Criminal Minds." The 4th season is phenomenal. Every season I say to myself, "It can't get any better than this," and every season it goes above and beyond the previous one. Hard to believe, but true. The season finale this time was shocking!!!! It is worth it just to get the 4th season to see the final episode!!!

Criminal minds season 4 has to be the best season yet i dont think that it had a hollywood ending i think that it had a great ending with a surprise twist. i thought they had some really creepy performances from some of tv's best actors--like jason alexander, luke perry, c thomas howell who gave such a brilliant performance as the boston reaper. i hope that the writers of the show continue to have a wonderful story plots. i heard that they are going to do a some great stories like the austalian kidnapping where that girl was in a shelter for years and had the father kids and a rocker who moonlights as a serial killer. so there are some interesting stories to check out for this season. i am very excited about the new season which starts on sept 23-9pm. so i would say buy this dvd set but at a cheap price its a great show but now worth 30 to 50 dollars. wait till you buy this season at a very cheap price. when you do get it know that its worth it because you will brilliant performances from it cast especially from thomas gibson he was so good this season. you will love the criminals they go after like the boston reaper, the canadian serial killers, you will see bio tech killers, and you will even see cult killers, genius killers, female killers, partners in crime killers, they got it all in this.
so the point i am saying is you will love the show....buy it but wait till it a price you can afford.
