Storyline

Two FBI agents, fighting the departmental stigma of backroom boys - those who try to complicate the status quo of simple Means, Motive, Opportunity (MMO) of crime-solving with academics - work to develop an innovative investigative field incorporating psychology, anthropology and sociology as a method to reveal the motive. They acknowledge classic crime-solving - MMO - as no longer sufficient because criminality is becoming more complicated as Motive graduates from need and greed to inexplicable and irrational reasons. They theorize applying deeper psychological evaluation will posit new questions. Simply, asking Why will lead to the Who. This series focuses on the development by two men, two agents, of a new criminal field and does so through story lines of visiting the sociopathic mind. Written by sasisami

Trivia

Latterly associated with FBI agents John Douglas and Robert K. Ressler in the Behavioral Science Unit devoted to the development of psychological profiling for serial killers. See more »

Goofs

In at least two episodes, there's a poster on Debbie's wall over the table advertising a concert by garage punk band The Cynics. This band was formed in 1983, so they couldn't be playing in the late 70's when season 1 is set. And it couldn't be another band with the same name, since the logo and locale (the advertised concert is in Pittsburgh, the aforementioned band's home town) fit. See more »

Dont listen to the commenters giving low ratings.
20 February 2019 | by triforce-88931See all my reviews

The few people here who are rating this a 1,2 or a 3 have no clue what makes a TV show. They also have no clue what actual acting is. No this show is not one of those shows where a serial killer is shown stabbing their victim to death. We dont see the cops chasing down the bad guys and saving the day. What we see is some amazing acting from some beyond amazing actors, giving us the stories of these true crimes. So if at all you're interested in these type of true crimes dont listen to these people giving low ratings who do not have any idea what they're talking about. This show is worth watching.
