Trivia

Throughout the series the producers used stylized visual sequences to illustrate Sam's intuitive leaps. Because the show debuted at the same time as the similarly themed Millennium (1996), which stared a profiler with actual psychic abilities illustrated with similar stylized segments, many assumed that Sam was supposed to be psychic. In reality the flashes were never supposed to be psychic. Instead they were supposed to illustrate Sam's thought process as she made intuitive leaps. See more »

Quotes

John Grant: We don't have a lot of time here, Dr. Lawson. So if you've got a theory, I want to hear it.
Dr. Samantha 'Sam' Waters: You want a "theory"? You've got Chinese food in the refrigerator, you like your women in heels, your scotch straight, and yourself definitely on top.

Crazy Credits

The actor Dennis Christopher, who plays "Jack", is never credited as Dennis Christopher, the credits just say "and jack". This is because the identity of Jack is a secret (for the characters in the series, they don't know who he is), his identity is unmasked in the first two episodes of the 4th season, from this moment he is credited as "dennis christopher as jack" in the credits. (There are two episodes, where he is credited in his role as "Albert Newquay", in fact, "Albert Newquay" is "Jack", also revealed in the meantioned episodes). See more »

An intelligently-made great film series ,worth seeing
19 March 2003 | by (Russe,Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I dislike TV series in general but this one is something really DIFFERENT!What attracts me is the fact that the most important thing in the series is PSYCHOLOGY.And this is exactly what today's films very often lack.The group tries to probe the minds of criminals-every one of them so different from the rest.This is hundred times more intriguing and scary than 20 action films put together.The plots are BELIEVABLE,the characters are life-like:with their problems,peculiarities,weaknesses,failures.Also I like the intelligent way in which the leading character was replaced by another actress(not the way they do these things in"the bold and the beautiful"for example.) What i lack is a list of all the episodes,so if anyone would be so kind to write them I would be grateful.
