Goofs

When the Hitchcock Pharmaceuticals executives are shown on retreat, they have sweatshirts with the company's logo on them. Panning around the circle of executives, the logos appear in reverse when the camera shows a man in a cowboy hat and vest sitting next to a man with reddish hair. The logo error is especially noticeable on the second man. Since there are no mirrors in the scene, the shot must have been reversed to make the shot appear from a different angle. See more »

Not bad
8 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Now this episode of "Criminal Minds" I actually enjoyed. It wasn't extremely gripping or thought-provoking like some other television shows, but I found myself interested enough and it followed along nicely.

It started by showing the tragic consequences of one man's hallucination. Several others had similar symptoms and testing showed they had all been poisoned. There was no threatening letter or ransom letter. The F.B.I. profilers were called in to try and determine the motive and criminal.

I actually found this episode had some nice scenes. The plot went along nicely enough, it felt less stereotypical and preachy than the other episodes I have seen. I also noticed that there was some nice editing (well, jump-cuts used appropriately, which always make me feel cheerful, although they did start to overuse them towards the end) and music, which generally made it all more exciting. Unfortunately, the criminal himself didn't seem particularly interesting nor believable - typical motive which they figured out, but his character just didn't seem to ring true. Having said that, I don't know any psychopathic revenge poisoners, so I'm probably not the best person to judge.

Overall, quite a good episode.
