Very easy to see why this show was short-lived
10 August 2015 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

A real shame as I am a great fan of Criminal Minds, so was looking forward to Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour. Especially after catching up on some short-lived shows recently (i.e. Law and Order: Trial by Jury), that while having flaws showed a lot of promise and were cancelled when they were still growing. Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour unfortunately never seemed to get off the ground, a slow start would have been forgivable (most shows do and even Criminal Minds did) but to show little improvement even when halfway through was indication of a show that wasn't going to work.

Sure the episodes were well-shot but never anything extraordinary, lacking the darker, grittier touch that the original Criminal Minds show brought to its darker scenes. Also thought very little of the music, the background scoring brings nothing different compared to that of other detective shows, sounding more generic than haunting or pulse-racing and the opening titles theme is so rushed that remembering it is impossible. The writing is all over the place, constantly not knowing what to do with itself and filled with poorly written lines delivered like wood. All of it just sounded rushed, on-the-surface with no development whatsoever and often over-the-top.

The story lines for Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour are never attention-grabbing, all of them feeling like retreads of the story lines for the original Criminal Minds but with none of the tension, suspense or the emotion. It was all just so dull and bland, and some of them were also convoluted to the point of getting lost part way through. None of the characters are easy to engage with at all either, little if anything is learnt about them, they never develop instead acting stupidly and lifelessly, and apart from Garcia (who is pointless on this show and has none of her spark) deciphering who was who was difficult initially. The villains are also not creepy enough to be anywhere near as memorable or detestable as the best villains on the original, and their development is at best sketchy. The acting is also some of the worst I've ever for any detective/mystery series, with only Michael Kelly showing any effort and even he seemed a little out of place.

Especially bad is Janeane Garofalo, who shows the emotions of a robot, if she was trying to be serious it comes at the expense of personality, and the character just grates. Forrest Whittaker is terribly and shockingly inconsistent, at points he goes completely through the motions (slurring words and all) and at other points he clearly over-compensates for the poor writing, the authoritative personality is overdone and then any empathising or emotion is delivered with a face of stone. Kirsten Vangsness, a bright spot in the original, doesn't make a smooth transition here, as aforementioned Garcia is pointless and just doesn't fit and Vangsness has lost her spark due to poor writing and being underused. All the acting's just a constant uncomfortable mix of lack of emotion and over-the-top-ness.

In conclusion, even on its own merits Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour is a very poor show that never gets off the ground. I've been known to defend short-lived shows, but this is a case of an early cancellation being justified. 2/10 Bethany Cox
