Criminal Minds


Olivia Pyles, Staff writer

Criminal Minds, a show for people who may be interested in law enforcement or who just like action TV shows that catch all kinds of criminals. It is about The FBI’s BAU, the Behavioral Analysis Unit. The BAU also calls themselves “Profilers” because they analyze the country’s most twisted criminal minds, anticipating the perpetrators’ next moves before they can strike again. Each member of the “mind hunter” team brings his or her expertise to pinpoint predators’ motivations and identify emotional triggers to stop them. Watch the FBI’s Behavioural Analysis Unit as they attempt to solve crimes through psychological profiling.

Criminal Minds is enjoyable for the dialogue featured in the show alone. Everything the characters say has an air of genuineness, which makes the viewer feel as if the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) is a close-knit family instead of just coworkers. Because of the characters’ on-screen chemistry, viewers can connect with their everyday struggles, whether it be work, friendship, or relationship drama.

This show is on Netflix for seasons one through twelve and on Hulu for seasons thirteen through fifteen. Criminal Minds is not just about the BAU catching criminals, it is about so much more.
