Criminal Minds is different. It's not another CSI. Instead of examining forensic evidence after a crime has been committed, this group of agents uses behavioral analysis techniques to prevent serial crimes. Great cast headed by Mandy Patinkin and Thomas Gibson. The depiction of violent serial criminals is complex and disturbing. The crimes are presented in a dark, realistic manner that is unusual for television. Highly recommended.

There are a handful of very very popular topics around TV shows... medical dramas, sci-fi dramas and police/criminal dramas. "Criminal Minds" stands out in this last category. The cast is wonerful. Stating with Many Patinkin, whom is always a pleasure to watch, as Jason Gideon, the head of the team. Thomas Gibson as Aaron Hotchner, the very handsome Shemar Moore as Derek Morgan and Matthew Grey Gubler as the always geeky and know-it-all Dr. Spencer Reid. Of course the team includes the sexy-smart female side, in which we have Lola Glaudini as Ellen Greenaway, AJ Cook as Jennifer JJ Jareau and the super tech savvy Kirsten Vangsness as Penelope Garcia.

The purpose of this FBI team is to solve cases of all natures... missing people, homicides, psychopaths, sociopaths, pedofiles, etc.. but from a common perspective. They are criminal profilers and as the evidence gathers and their knowledge converges the profile os the UNSUB (unknown subject) leads them, hopefully to a resolution. Most of the times its a race against time itself, to help prevent the unsub for attacking again.

From the very first episode of Criminal Minds, "Extreme Agressor" I've been totally hooked up. The acting is superb, the dialogues and the stories are believable and well thought.

This DVD set includes the 22 episodes of the first season:

1 Extreme Aggressor

2 Compulsion

3 Won't Get Fooled Again

4 Plain Sight

5 Broken Mirror

6 L.D.S.K.

7 The Fox

Season 1 is truly addictive! The only circumstance that stopped me from

watching the entire Season 1 at once was that I had to eat! The story

lines are fantastic! The acting is so real that one forgets that the viewer is watching it on your TV! Buy it! Watch it! But one word of caution! Have a protable frig next to you loaded with food so you don't have to move!

Criminal Minds is one of the best programs currently airing on television. Since its debut on CBS in the fall of 2005, the program has impressed viewers not only with its excellent cast, but also with top-notch writing and production. Criminal Minds follows a group of profilers from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit who track down a broad range of criminals, including serial killers, rapists, arsonists/bombers and child abductors, among others. The profilers get inside the heads of these criminals by establishing psychological profiles of their subjects and thinking as they do.

Mandy Patinkin (Chicago Hope) stars as Special Agent Jason Gideon, and Thomas Gibson (Dharma & Greg) is Special Agent Aaron Hotchner. Gideon and Hotchner head up the BAU team. Each member of the team has his or her own area of expertise. Derek Morgan (former soap star Shemar Moore) specializes in obsessive crimes, while Elle Greenaway (Lola Glaudini) has a background in sexual offenses. Matthew Gray Gubler is Dr. Spencer Reid, the geeky, socially-challenged genius. A.J. Cook plays rookie agent Jennifer "J.J." Jareau, and Kirsten Vangsness is Penelope Garcia, the techie. The producers have assembled an excellent cast, with each actor well suited for his/her role, and they have great chemistry, playing off each other very well.

The writers and producers of Criminal Minds consult with staff at the real-life Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico, Virginia. This allows the writers to come up with some incredibly realistic storylines for the show.

Now a days all tv shows from CBS follow the CSI formula, and if they dont follow it to perfection then its something kinda reminiscent of CSI. What i mean we get a lot of flashy scenes and some gory effects (not that im complaining i love CSI) but somewhere during that proccess the characters feel sort of underdeveloped, like they have no emotions or no personal life. Sometimes with these shows there is a certain lack of feeling...its centered on the clues and thats it, that's why Criminal Minds is somewhat of a welcomed change. In Criminal Minds Gideon and his team catch serial killers and rapists and such by identifying with them, by getting inside this people's heads and the show always shows the toll the job has on each character..how hard it is to go on living a normal life after the day job is over. Another surprising twist the show offers is this sort of i dont know what to call it...sympathy for the bad guy...once the profile is complete and they know how to catch the bad guy...i am always surprised at how fragile and human this killers are (well...most of them).

The first season was great with episodes like riding the lightning and L.D.S.K. and others more (i dont have the box set here to ennumerate my favorite episodes)...that said the first season DID have some very cliche episodes that left me kind of surprised at the lack of originality...like "kingfisher pt1." where some old creep is obsessed with gideon's team and sends them on a quest to solve a mystery of a missing girl....reminds me too much of seven or silence of the lambs...and its been done before...or the pilot episode...my least favorite episode in the show...

Anyways Criminal Minds is a great set...despite some very cliche and done to death episodes (which are like 3 or 4)the other episodes are excellent and a very compelling watch
