Great cast and script!
Kathleen Stewart
It ends on a VERY BAD cliffhanger--as in, you don't know if one of the main characters just died, and it seemed that this individual may well have been dead.
Shannon A. Montgomery
When I saw this, and I saw that the season ended early, I was a bit leery.

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.

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!

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!

It seems that successful TV series always must result in spin off series trying to capture the same genie in a bottle that the original did. It works on occasion, but then sometimes it doesn't. CRIMINAL MINDS: SUSPECT BEHAVIOR kind of falls in the middle.

The series follows a special unit of the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) of the FBI, but not quite like the team in the original series. This team is called a Red Cell, a special group put together by the head of the FBI to be a rapid response team of agents and civilians alike that will try and solve crimes that have begun before they escalate into something more heinous.

The team is led by Special Agent Sam Cooper (Forest Whitaker), a dogged leader whose goal is to take out the bad guys at all costs but as peacefully as possible. Cooper is a genius when it comes to putting together the facts he sees, those his team gathers, and sifting through them to get to the clue needed to capture the unsub (unknown subject).

The team Cooper has pulled together comes from various sources, partly because of his penchant for not wanting to deal with bureaucrats and partly because (my guess) the network wanted to include as many diverse people as possible in this series. In some cases it works, in others not so much.

Cooper's right hand is Beth Cooper (Janeane Garofalo), a much subdued agent with what appears to be a highly pessimistic attitude. Ex-British Special Forces agent Mick Rawson (Matt Ryan) is a weapons expert and the teams good looking guy to get women to watch. Jonathan Simms (Michael Kelly) is an ex-on trying to redeem himself by putting other criminals away. Gina LaSalle (Beau Garrett) is the heart of the team, the conscience if you will.

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.
