Criminal Minds revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit's most prominent agent is David Rossi (Joe Mantegna), a founding member of the BAU, who returns to help the team solve new cases, while pursuing some unfinished business of his own. Each member brings his or her own area of expertise to the table as they pinpoint predators' motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.

This is the fifth season, so we know quite a bit about the private lives of the characters by now. It's a quirky cast and I think you'll like them. Most of the time you can watch an episode without needing to know any backstory on the characters, but that is not true for the start of this season. In the first season the team leader, Hodge, was married with a son on the way. Over the next season or two his job began to interfere with their marriage and they divorced. At the end of 4 and continuing into 5 there's a serial killer that goes after Hodge's family. Although each of the episodes works a case, there are segments of each that go back to that plot line. Episode 100, fittingly titled "100," is the culmination of that plot. You won't understand this episode if you don't know something of the backstory.
The downside of this product for me is that there aren't enough extras. Maybe the writers and directors are just really good, but there aren't many deleted scenes. The series isn't geared around special effects, but when they blow up a building we do get a short clip on it. There was a good explanation of the storyline I just mentioned on "100" but that's a rarity. The writers consult with some of the founding members of this group. I'd love to have more short interviews with the writers and the consultants on how they came up with the "unsubs" (unknown subjects).
Despite this I gave a 5-star rating because I love the show. The main cast is exceptional and the casting people come up with some wonderful guests like Tim Curry and Corbin Bernson. I recommend starting with season 1. On NetFlix it's only available on discs. It's on Hulu but it's much more expensive. The price here was a great bargin, I received the order quickly, and I didn't have any problems with the discs. I own them, and this is a series worth rewatching, especially in a weekend marathon, and if I get tired of them I can resell them, which you can't do with Hulu or NetFlix.
The latter is what I received, and needless to say, I'm pissed. It matches none of the other seasons in my collection, AND it doesn't even match the product photo on this page!!!
I realize other people have also complained about this, but I feel like you should know this if you're a collector before you buy this season. I've noticed this problem with another series as well, but I feel like Amazon should at least give people the option of choosing which version to purchase.
That said, this is one of my favorite shows and I can't say anything bad about it.
When I got this set, the box was a little ripped and the DVD's were not even in their spots. Disk 5 was in disk 4 and they were ALL like that is even at all. A couple disks were just free, meaning if I picked up the case I could hear the disks shaking. The plastic dvd holders don't snap/close together well and the plastic over the paper cover is crinkled. Very disappointed on how the product was delivered.
