The cases of the F.B.I. Behavioral Analysis Unit (B.A.U.), an elite group of profilers who analyze the nation's most dangerous serial killers and individual heinous crimes in an effort to anticipate their next moves before they strike again.
Matthew Gray Gubler,
A spin-off of NCIS (2003) about the local field office of NCIS that investigates criminal cases involving military personnel in The Big Easy, a city known for its music, entertainment and decadence. This colorful city that harbors a dark side is a magnet for service personnel on leave, and when overindulgence is followed by trouble, Special Agent Dwayne Pride's team is at its best.
The first episode pressed all my buttons. It had the pointless, drawn- out foot chase that could have been avoided if they'd only thought to post someone at the back exit. It could have ended early if only the girls had thought "now that we have him down let's keep beating on him". Instead they did what stupid writers force them to do. They basically knocked him down and left him intact so that he could continue to chase them for another 15 pointless minutes.
Then they added the final insult. It ended the way 99% of the episodes of Criminal Minds (TOS) end. The bad guy has a knife/gun to the throat/head of a hostage whereupon a standoff unfolds. Really. Maybe on occasion, but does every freaking show have to end in a hostage scenario? Unlike this waste of time, Criminal minds (TOS) at least has interesting characters even if the show had become little more than torture porn.
If you want to see an excellent cross-border cop show then forget this one and watch reruns of Crossing Lines.
