Netflix Crime Shows: Criminal Minds

Release Year: 2005

Created by Jeff Davis

Starring Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Mandy Patinkin, A.J. Cook, Kirsten Vangsness

Criminal Minds has been on for more than a decade with 11 seasons on Netflix and the series has undergone a number of changes to its cast with some of them being positive changes and some of them gut-wrenching changes for the viewer.

The show centers on the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) which is a special group of FBI profilers who are working to find the unsub and tap into their psyche and the mind of the criminal to solve the case and prevent any more criminal acts from being committed.

It’s one dark theme and one heinous act after another when you’re watching Criminal Minds so you are going to get a big dose of uncomfortable situations, so it’s not necessarily a great binge-watch, but it’s a great watch nonetheless.
