Criminal Mind Stands the Test of Time


Natalia Cullins, Contributor

If you love all things crime and psychology, Criminal Minds is the perfect show for you. Running for 15 seasons, the show has recently come to an end on February 19 of last year. The show started on September 22, 2005 on CBS. The show is about a team of FBI agents that travel the country and solve crimes and find serial killers. The team profiles the serial killers by looking at their behavior and patterns. The show reminds me of an adult Scooby Doo, which is probably why I love it so much.  

You can watch the show now on Netflix (Seasons 1-12) and Hulu (Seasons 13-15)I’ve personally watched the show many times because of the amazing cast and great storylines. The cast includes Matthew Gray Gubler (plays Spencer Reid), A.J. Cook (plays Jennifer “JJ” Jareau), Kirsten Vangsness (plays Penelope Garcia), Joe Mantegna (plays David Rossi) and many more have passed through the show. Even with the many faces that have come across the screen, the riveting storylines have never changed. The editing style of the show changes from the start of the show to the middle of the show since the show started so long ago. 

The show has two spin-offs–Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. The show is rated as an 8.1/10 on IMBd and 8.8/10 on If you read the reviews on Google, people say that it is “By far the best show ever”, “Criminal Minds captured my heart” and other amazing reviews left by viewers. In conclusion, I think you should watch Criminal Minds because it is an amazing show and a show worth binge-watching.
