Your Next Box Set: Criminal Minds

On the lookout for a new box set to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, will be recommending you a series that will swallow up your whole life until your finish the last episode...

This week, it’s long-running crime drama Criminal Minds


What is it?

The show follows the travails of the Behavioural Analysis Unit of the FBI, they get called in by local police departments to solve the crimes they can’t. Often the really grizzly ones…


Who’s in it?

The 10th season of the show is about to go into production, so there’s been a fair few comings and goings, but a few of the cast have lasted the distance. Shemar Moore, Matthew Gray Gubler, one-time Dharma and Greg star Thomas Gibson, Kirsty Vangsness and A.J Cook have been pretty much constants since the show’s inception.

Other big-names to come and go over the years include Jeanne Tripplehorn, Mandy Pantikin, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jane Lynch and Molly Baker have made appearances over the years.


Why should I watch it?

It’s an old-fashioned procedural, the team show up and get to the bottom of grizzly, unpleasant case and then move on. You get to know them, you get to love them, but this is popcorn police tales, full of slick action and endlessly engaging storylines.


Describe the show in three words…

Slick, stirring and steady. 


The ninth season of Criminal Minds is released on Monday (December 8th). You can pick it up and pre-order it now in hmv stores.
