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.

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.

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.

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 didn't know what to expect with this new extension of Criminal Mind called Suspect Behavior, after watching it based on the first couple of episodes I'm really into it, this one has a different feel from the original Criminal Minds. the story lines are good thus far and keeps your brain alive and entertain with the breakdown of personalities. As for the casting I know Forest Whitaker's body of work but was surprise that he moved over to TV, he is very good in the series but my only problem is I tend to get attached to these shows when they decide to bring big name actors to it, but after the first or second season they are gone, so I hope he does this show for awhile. And my biggest surprise was Janeane Garofalo I defiantly was shock to see her in a drama mystery series but she is holding her own, and as for the rest of the cast great work. Hope to see more of this show in the future.

PS: the member of the team the guy with the accent how cute is that.
