Binge Watch—Criminal Minds
Crime show fans have been obsessing over Criminal Minds for the past 11 seasons. For those who do not know this popular TV series yet, it is all about FBI profilers who belong to the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) in Quantico, Virginia. Their job is to profile the criminal, or unsub (unknown subject), as they call these perpetrators.
Racing against time before he/she/they strike again, they have to find out the reason behind the crime, through examining the crime scene for signatures or ways to identify them. They use behavioral patterns and analysis in order to put them behind bars. In fact, most of their crimes involve serial killings, mass murders and other similarly boggling cases that local law enforcement cannot handle on their own. Those interested in psychos have a chance to understand what goes on in their minds and why they do what they do. Seeing how these agents use this to catch them is another highlight.
At VIDGO TV, we love a great TV series, and beyond the exciting story-line and the sick criminals featured in every episode, what makes the show popular are the characters:
The only one in this TV series who is not a profiler, she is the tech-savvy computer geek who uses her skills to track the footsteps of the unsubs. Colorful, stylish and bubbly, she flirts around with Derek with her naughty one-liners.
Jennifer (JJ) Jareau
She started as the Media Liaison Officer, dealing with the press during cases. Later on, she became a profiler as well. Do not get tricked by her blonde hair and blue eyes, she is a tough woman who can take on the criminals.
A veteran and pioneer of the BAU, he is a former Marine who is specialized in hostage negotiations. After retiring, he came back to the FBI for some unfinished business.
Aaron Hotchner (Hotch)
The unit chief of the BAU, he might seem tough and serious. His years in the team have touched his life personally, but he has never been anything but a sharp profiler who will not stop until he catches the unsub.
He is intelligent, buff and easily the strongest member of the team. He conducts the FBI’s self-defense training courses, but he can quickly soften up and flirt with Garcia, his “Baby Girl”.
Dr. Spencer Reid
The BAU team will not be complete without its resident nerd. He has an eidetic memory and a Ph.D. in Mathematics, Chemistry, Engineering, but is also adorable though socially awkward. He can find patterns where no one else can, and is a key help in catching the un-sub.
