About The Show
This popular show follows a group of FBI agents as they go inside the minds of vicious murderers. With Emmy-winner Mandy Patinkin (CHICAGO HOPE) playing a star behaviour analyst, these profilers try to solve mysteries by delving into the psychology of serial killers and terrorists. In addition to Patinkin, CRIMINAL MINDS stars Thomas Gibson as the group’s leader. Several of the group’s members are able to offer special insight into specific cases: Lola Glaudini’s character understands sexually related crimes, and Shemar Moore’s agent helps to solve crimes of obsession. Matthew Gray Gubler plays a young agent whose social skills don’t quite match his high level of intelligence. Offering insight into both real and fictional crimes, this show is an essential for drama devotees.
Criminal Minds revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyzer the country’s most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again.
Special Agent Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin) is the FBI’s top behavioural analyst and he joins the Behavioural Analysis Unit lead by Special Agent Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson), a family man who is able to gain people’s trust and unlock their secrets. Also on the team are Elle Greenaway (Lola Glaudini), an agent with a background in sexual offenses; Special Agent Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore), an expert on obsessive crimes; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer “JJ” Jareau (AJ Cook), a confident young agent who acts as the unit liaison for the team, and Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness), a computer wizard who helps research the cases.
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.
