That is a pet peeve of mine too, when they don't shoot correctly. I hate that sideshooting thing, because you can't shoot like that in real life, or some of the ways they do shot on other shows. I flinch when I see Elle shot her got.

As a profiler, I have the background and love the show because the writers and actors really make it as realistic as possible while working to keep the audience interested.

I agree on making the guest stars creepy. What they did to Jason Alexander and Alex Laughlin and other are great work.

I too am a sucker for suspense and mystery and love forensics. I was into forensics before it was cool and spent a summer in high school at LSU at a forensic science camp.

I love the characters and how they interact. You can see the familial roles within the team (ie Morgan as a big brother, Hotch as dad). The storylines are consistently good and I think the regular cast'acting gets better everytime as they bond as a team. I also think it's awesome that they get guest stars like Dawson and Jason Alexander and make them creepy.

I also really appreciate that Hotch shoots properly. This is probably a weird quirk of mine growing up with law enforcement background, but he really does excellently. Elle, however, did horribly.

I started watching because Shemar Moore was on it. Been a fan of his since Y&R. Also because I love a good mystery and mine started with the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books. I love all the characters and the way they determine the profile of the suspect.

For one, I love shows that include anything about forensic science. Don't know why, I don't think I could perform thier jobs, (too gruesome!) I love Criminal minds because they have a great cast that work well together. There really is'nt one person I don't like, except for Hodge. He is so emotionless at times, never smiles, etc. Just a weird individual. I like Garcia's charcter alot and the little smart doctor boy. Can never remember his name right off. Needless to say the storylines are amazing! Never bored with this show.

OK, yes, Shemar is SMOKIN'!!! But so is Hotch! And I've been mad for Reid since Season 1. Isn't it cute how he has those dark circles under his eyes? Why do I find that adorable? He looks like a heroin addict, but in a cute way. Yeah,OK, I'm a little weird. Back to CM. Great stories and hot guys. What more could you want in a show?

Oh, for Pete's sake. None of you will admit this? I watch with the hope that Shemar Moore will take his shirt off again. That is one fine man! I've followed him since his Y&R days. Yummy.

After that, I love the humor that stays in the show, even though there are gruesome parts. That's because no one can do horror without humor day in and day out.

Reid is so cool. He reminds of Temperance Brennan on Bones. Only he's more in tune with the real world.

I do like the whodunits, but I can figure them pretty easily. EXCEPT that third season ending when all of them were in black trucks and one blew up. THAT TICKED ME OFF! LOL

Why do I love Criminal Minds? Its so hard to narrow it down. I do agree with Alex'sGirl that the acting can be a bit stiff and I'd like a little more history with the profilers. I loved the show when we delved into Reid's past. Reid is probably my favorite character, and I love it when the others tease him about how smart he is.
I have always enjoyed reading true crime books and am very interested in learning the motivations behind killer's actions, which is a major component of CM'sd formula. CM's stories are awesome. It is very rare for me to get to the end of the show without saying, "OMG, that was a great episode!" They're all great!! I don't like the ones involving children, I can't handle those stories in real life either, but the fact is, they do happen and CM has to touch on it occasionally. I love how the team is able to find the Unsubs based on their profile. I'm having a very hard time finding one thing to like about the show! I love everything!! It has kept me coming back week after week since its premiere and that is rare for me. I tend to get sick of shows quickly. I like the cast, I love the writing, and I enjoy getting to talk about it with you guys!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I LOVE a good mystery!! I started very young with Twilight Zone and Vincent Price, then Sherlock Holmes stories and All the Nancy Drews'!! I still have them!!! Then it was anything at the library I could get my hands on. I remember the summer of "69", I read over 14 mystery novels!! Then it was Night Stalker and Tales from the Crypt and The 6th Sense and then I started to collect all the Alfred Hitchcock novels and movies!!! Oh God,...I forgot about Perry Mason!!! He was my idol in the 60's. I was a little weird! emoticon emoticon What I love about the series is all of it!!! The pressure they put Penelope through is riveting and she always is super. Then Reid is just amazing. I love his empathy and inner instincts...Kind of like a medium, but not so "out there"! I love to see his mind work. I LOVED Gideon! emoticon emoticon emoticon I'm ok with "the new guy". He's sufficient enough so far! I'm bad with names...the girls are good, and Hodge is so intense -focused, like the rock of the show!! (I guess somebody has to be!) And the best for last..."Sugar & Sweetness" is just so good to look at every week!!! And he's smart and so physically inclined!!! emoticon Aside from all that...the stories and writing are so smart and keeps you on edge most times. The only thing I don't care for is the criminals and their tortcher of innocent victims. Did I leave anything out!? hahaha emoticon

I like it because I am a mystery/suspense/thriller junkie. My DH says that with all the shows I watch, I should have been a cop or private detective. Mine too started with Nancy Drew and grew from there.

to be honest i was first drawn to it because there was nothing else to watch. i found it creepy at first and some nights i had trouble sleeping after. the cast was excellent and the story lines,the clues,how smart reid is,how sweet morgan is,kept me coming back.but sometimes they act like there reading a script.i know they can't be excited about their job,but there can be better acting.they need more stories like vincent not just we caught someone who killed a lot next.sometimes it's to cold for me their to stiff. i want more background so the team seem more human not walking robots. will i stop watching not on your life.i hope simin mierin writes another story like vincent that rocked alex o loughlin wasn't bad either.

Although it all draws me back to the show (the cast, they storylines, the QUALITY, etc.), I have always liked who-dun-its. Although we are often shown at the beginning who the unsub is, I enjoy the investigation of the clues and profiles to find the unsub. For me, it all started in grade school and my first Nancy Drew book. Then came Agatha Christie. Then came all the crime dramas I can manage...

We all love Criminal Minds (duh!). We all enjoy it for different reasons. What draws you to the show (cast, storyline, crime, etc.)? No easy way out by saying all of it.... emoticon
