CRIMINAL MINDS  is a solid crime drama.  I keep missing it on TV, but the sets are the perfect way to catch up.   It is the type of show I couldn't just watch one episode of.  It is usually in sets of two or three episodes.   CRIMINAL MINDS follows the FBI Agents that form the Behavioral Analysis Unit as they profile serial killers and do their best to stop them.  They enter the dark minds of these killers and it does take a toll on their personal lives.  Their past also helped make them be BAU agents too.  They're like a family that has to trust each other because sometimes that is all they have when they're out in the field.

 

Episodes that focus on Emily Prentiss (DEMONOLOGY) and author/ agent David Rossi (ZOE'S REPRISE) show CRIMINAL MINDS is at it's strongest when it puts the spotlight on one character. HOUSE ON FIRE is also another episode I really enjoyed.  CONFLICTED has some nice twists.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

WORKING THE SCENE featurettes that focus on 11 episodes from the fourth season- 

DISC 1-  BLOW UP!, TRUCKIN'

DISC 2-  NIGHT TRAIN, MASTER CLASS

DISC 3-  FIGHT CLUB, RIDING SHOTGUN

DISC 5-  BUS STOP, BURN BABY BURN, TRANSFORMATION

DISC 6-  VINCENT

DISC 7-  PIG FARM

 

The Profiles on DISC 7 focus on pivotal episodes for each character and discussion of who the characters are.  The gag reel is really funny.   Also included in the set are deleted scenes for THE ANGEL MAKER, MINIMAL LOSS, and 52 PICKUP.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  CRIMINAL MINDS is a solid crime show.   It's not as dark as MILLENNIUM, but still it is a dark show.   I wonder how season 5 will pick up after the final moments of season 4.
