i have to say i was leery about season three when i heard mandy patinkin was leaving. but my fears were for nothing. season three is probably my favorite yet. it has many strong episodes, tries new things (true night, one of my favorites) and gives us a peek into garcia's life in several riveting episodes.

i don't care about rossi the way i cared about gideon, but he's a good character and i'm glad he's not a carbon copy of jason. the team works together very well and season three shows that cm is more of an ensemble show now...which i very much enjoy.

as usual, cm has excellent supporting actors in every episode, riveting story lines, and makes fantastic use of background music choices. i can't wait to buy season three, and i'm looking forward to season 4. season three is especially worthwhile to see how much doctor spencer reid has changed and grown from season one. highly recommended.

imo, the best season 3 eps are:

in birth and death
scared to death
7 seconds
true night
lucky
penelope
third life
damage
higher power
elephant's memory
tabula rasa

Another cracking season of criminal minds, brilliant program.
Only 1 small criticism. The review on the website (and to be, fair the back of the dvd) state this dvd has English subtitles. I find sometimes the characters say things quickly or quietly and you miss important bits and have to repeatedly rewind. Don't be fooled. There are no subtitles on this dvd!!
Anyway, other than that, this season is excellent, with some interesting twists on the bad guys. Well worth the money.

I enjoyed very much the first two seasons. But when I read that Mandy Patinkin had left the show I was disappointed and thought that was the end of Criminal Minds. I was so wrong! And don't get me wrong, he was a great asset being the character they most turned to for advise in all areas of the psyque. Joe Mantegna is more likable -sorry Mandy- and though he was brought to the show almost abruptly, they show you how he adapts gradually to everybody and the new way things are done at the BAU since he had been part of it when it began. Throughout the season, Joe Mantegna integrates the team like a piece of a puzzle that didn't quite fit was removed and placed by the perfect one, and now I see that the show will not only survive it's leading character but will do better with the new one.

Now, the plot. Unfortunately, there are so many sick in this world that they will never run out of new ideas for a show. Every episode is good, has new twists, and some episodes are even better that what we would sometimes expect; you are guessing who is going to be the bad guy and how they are going to figure out, by his/her personality or behavior, who committed this or that murder. It's just so wonderfully made that sometimes I think I have a bit of a psychologist in me!

It never gets boring and even though it is about solving mostly murders, I always finish watching with a sense of satisfaction.

The only bad thing is that I watched it so fast that now I am tapping my fingers waiting for the fourth season. Don't miss this one!

CRIMINAL MINDS had established itself as a huge ratings hit. Over the first 2 seasons it had developed characters to care about who worked for the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) of the FBI. It broke the mold from other nighttime crime shows and was very unique in that it not only showed how the minds of serial killers and criminals worked but also how the FBI used profiling and other skills to unearth the pattern of each killer they were investigating. Season 2 saw some slight cast changes from season 1 but no one on the show saw what was coming at the beginning of season 3.

To view the season as an entity you see a series grow even further than it had before. You see what it means for a cast to truly work together and have each member be strong. The only thing noticable is the shortage of episodes and this is due to the writers strike and this was out of the shows hands. They still managed to come up with 20 mezmerizing episodes. But anyone who loved this show for the first two seasons saw Mandy Patinkin as the star and he is now gone. The writers and producers had to make it so that the viewers saw none of the drama that was going on behind the camera and what we get is a seamless story line introducing Joe Mantegnana who manages to bring an even stronger presence without eclipsing Patinkin. And the viewer can see the cast coming together. Episodes are given to each cast member providing the audience the unique opportunity to aquire knowledge of their personal lives which is often lost with such shows. It makes sense that it works so well on CRIMINAL MINDS for the storylines are often horrific and reach the fine line of what can be shown on televison. We get to see how the job and the cases effect the agents which helps ease the intensity for us the viewers.

There were a considerable amount of good and great episodes this season! I like most was kind of worried about Criminal Minds without Jason Gideon (writing him out could have been done a bit better. I personally think the events of the Season 2 Finale were enough to make anyone quit their job). I admit the episodes leading up to Joe Mantegna's appearance seemed to be just biding their time until a new guy stepped in but I like his character. The Season Finale is awesome as if the two-parter in which a team member gets shot. It seems as if the 1st Season was to have you qualify the BAU Crew, the 2nd was to show you that they are all human characters with the same worries, love and flaws as you and I and the 3rd, is to show that profiling doesn't solve everything and sometimes it goes wrong. I particularly liked how the end of the Season Opener leaves you in doubt about whether the suspect arrested was really the Un-Sub or not. Can't wait to see the 4th Season!
