Criminal Minds Season 2 Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A great show showing how the BAU works. It really brings all emotions out while covering individual criminals per each episode and giving glimpses into the backgrounds of the whole team. Not appropriate for kids but if your a crime junkie, worth watching
