Criminal Minds

Criminal Minds

This show never disappoints you and always has you coming back for the next episode. The characters are also interesting and inspiring, when I was younger I used to want to be just like them.

Crimes, murders, behavioral analysis, and psychopaths, “Criminal Minds” has got it all. In this show, a team of BAU agents travel all over the U.S. helping states and cities put murderers behind bars. This team majors in behavioral analysis, studying the behavior of past criminals to help them catch present criminals in the show. Though there are many other specialists in the FBI, this team is only featured. To sum up, “Criminal Minds”, is really like any other cop shows, like “Blue Bloods.”


In “Criminal Minds,” Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson), is basically the leader of the team, along his side is David Rossi (Joe Mantega), who also helps him lead the team. But two can’t do much without help of others, like the help of agents Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore), Alex Blake (Jeanne Tripplehorn), and Jennifer Jareau (A.J. Cook). This team also has help from a prodigy, Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), and a computer genius, Penelope Garcia (Kristen Vangsness).


The supporting characters, you could say are the helping police and the criminals. A supporting character is Shane Wyeth (Paulo Costanzo), a hacker and old flame of Penelope Garcia. Another supporting character is the criminal Sam Russell (Erik Passoja). And the last supporting character is Lt. Mike Sommers (David Salsa), the detective who invited the agents to help them catch the killer.

“The Black Queen”

Season 9, Ep. 12

“Criminal Minds” starts off with a flashback to 2004, in a interrogation room. In this room was Penelope Garcia and Agent Hotchner. He offers her a job at the agency to become their computer analysis at the BAU. Then it goes to the present day, where the team heads to Silicon Valley to deal with a issue. The Justice Department was hacked and had gotten one of their files stolen, also the hacker made a killer, Sam Russell, innocent. When they got to Silicon Valley, J.J. and Hotchner heads to San Quentin Penitentiary, to pay Sam Russell a visit. When they do, he still claims he’s innocent and swore that meth was the reason why he killed those females. It was meth to be blamed! Garcia tries to find the hacker through code and was surprised to find out that it was Shane Wyeth. When Garcia found out, she attempted to set up a meeting between the two and succeeded.

When Garcia met up with Shane, she asks for the return of the file, in return for whatever the FBI knows about the case. Shane agrees. The team thinks that Sam Russell has a outside partner so they went to meet him again. They were correct, because the next scene, his partner drugged and captured Shane. Trying to frame Shane and then killing Shane to make it seem like a suicide. But as he sticks the needle into Shane, the cops busts in. The perpetrator is arrested; While Morgan and Reid resuscitates Shane back to life. The team heads home. Job well done.
