Great start to 'Criminal Minds'
4 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not quite one of the best of the entire show, but one of the better episodes of Season 1 and a great start 'Criminal Minds', which apart from some seasons better than others and the episodes not consistent in quality is still one of my favourites overall.

"Extreme Aggressor" looks great, love the dark and gritty and always stylish and classy look which is consistent throughout. The haunting and hypnotic music fits very well and never distracts, even if not quite enhancing it.

The script is taut and thought-provoking (like the bookend quotations and the psychological profiling), the case is complex and well-developed without being convoluted and is never dull and full of tension and suspense. Also love the chemistry of the team and while the unsub's screen time is not much (not a bad thing) he brings a real creepiness.

'Criminal Minds' leads were developed even better later, but even so early on their personalities are well established. The direction is more than solid as is the case a lot of the time with the show. The acting is top-notch, though Lola Glaudini this reviewer has already been somewhat cold and Elle is a character I've never really warmed to and Kirsten Vangsness while still quirky and charming is underused.

Mandy Patinkin is very commanding though, Thomas Gibson excels in giving a suitable stoic seriousness, Matthew Gray Gubler is a breath of fresh air (Reid has always been a favourite) and Shemar Moore is appropriately tough and gritty. Andrew Jackson is also chilling as Tim Vogel.

Overall, a great start. 9/10 Bethany Cox
