I just watched s1 to s6 ep 17 over the last month while I was recovering from a unfortunate skiing accident. This show definitely has opnened my eyes to the world of behaviour analysis, and in saying that, I will think twice, maybe even thrice before I help someone out who is showing signs of difficulty loading a wheelchair into their van.
From all of the other crime dramas out there, this one keeps the focus solely on the actual cases at hand, not the personal lives of the members of the BAU. The itty bitty snipits of their personal lives outside the BAU gives the viewers out there wanting more, however, THEY (the writiers) know that this is what keeps their audience tuning in every week. A very good balance. Plus, its so refreshing to see that the digital computer flashyness like that from CSI-MIAMI and the like are non-existant here.

I purchased the box set of Criminal Minds as a gift. I got a little nervous when I discovered that they had the wrong house number after being notified that it had been shipped. Amazon got in touch with me and forwarded my concern to the person shipping the order and within two weeks I had the package with the correct house number. I was totally impressed, thinking that it was going to be lost. I had the mail man looking for it every day, but, I did get it in perfect condition and I could not get the boxed set for the price which I paid anywhere else. And many thanks to the shipper.

Criminal Minds is about one department of the FBI, the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit). This team specialize in making up profiles of the unsubs to help with the solving of a case. I find it fascinating how they accomplish this and try to do the profiling myself, while watching.
