22. Criminal Minds

Release Year: 2005

Creator: Jeff Davis

Starring:  Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, Thomas Gibson, Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Mandy Patinkin

The Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) is a special group of profilers tasked with staying one step ahead of the worst criminals in the world. Set in Quantico, VA. this group of FBI agents handles the cases of serial killers and violent crimes as they use profiling tactics to identify the unknown subject (unsub) and to do so you have to get inside the criminal’s mind.

This isn’t your ordinary crime drama and isn’t afraid to show you how dark and twisted these serial killers and career criminals can get. It’s not always going to end with a happy ending and the BAU rushing in to save the day either.

It’s not necessarily a show that makes for a great binge-watching session unless you like being hit on the head with murder, kidnapping, torture and other assorted violent crimes, but the writing, acting and action make this one of the best available on Netflix.
