The 4 Reasons Why ‘Criminal Minds’ Is Still a Great Binge Watch

Even after airing for more than 12 years, “Criminal Minds” remains a must-binge across the globe. As you can imagine with a plotline that revolves around an endless supply of serial killers, the show has cycled through and replaced at least a half-dozen linchpin characters. Still, despite the rotating cast, fan interest in the series has failed to wane, a testament to the quality team of writers behind the show.

“Criminal Minds” airs a new episode every Wednesday evening, but for anyone who’s unable to afford cable, there is some good news: You can watch every season — with the exception of the currently airing one — on Netflix, meaning that you have hours of streamable content at the touch of a button.

But with so many other options, why watch “Criminal Minds?” Here are four reasons why you should stream the CBS mega-hit immediately.

The cast embodies the lives and emotions

Why Andrew Cunanan Killed Gianni Versace Is Still A Mystery, Though ‘American Crime Story’ Will Attempt To Make …

Although American Crime Story is telling another true crime story for its second season, The Assassination Of Gianni Versace (director: Gwyneth Horder-Payton) will take some liberties with history just like The People v. O.J. Simpson (executive producer: Nina Jacobson) did. The new season, premiering on Jan. 17, will attempt to explain why Andrew Cunanan killed Gianni Versace in Miami Beach on July 15, 1997.

The Assassination Of Gianni Versace (associate producer: Linda Favila) is based on the book, Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History by Vanity Fair journalist Maureen Orth. Vulgar Favors is touted as non-fiction and is based on a significant amount of reporting. In Orth’s original 1997 Vanity Fair article about Cunanan, she reported that he had been on a murder spree, and that it ended with the renowned fashion designer.

Pop culture is still in the thrall of Charles Manson’s death cult

Right now we’re likely dreaming up more serial killers than actually exist. Must-watch television series over the past few years have included high-end American productions such as Hannibal, Mindhunter, Dexter, and True Detective, along with British shows including The Fall, Dark Angel, and In Plain Sight. Serial killers have also figured prominently in weekly procedurals such as CSI, Law Order: SVU, and of course, Criminal Minds.

I’ll be honest—I’ve watched most of these shows. Based on them, you’d think serial killers and abductors are lurking around every corner. And indeed that exact—unfounded—fear has helped create a generation of children who are overprotected to the point of absurdity.

If you look at the Radford University/Florida Gulf Coast University Serial Killer Database, which tracks close to 4,800 serial killers and 13,000 victims over the course of more than a century, it’s clear the the 1970s-1990s were peak serial killer times.

‘Mindhunter’ is a critique of misogyny — but it still sidelines women in favor of men

A few episodes into Netflix’s Mindhunter, the streaming service’s prestige crime drama about FBI agents investigating serial killers in the late 1970s, we’re introduced to Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), a psychology professor. She’s approached by two agents — our main characters, Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) — who are trying to innovate how law enforcement thinks about and characterizes serial killers. They’re using psychology to better understand criminals, and they’d like her perspective to make sure there’s some validity to their work.

Carr, who is writing a book on white-collar “psychopaths,” is convinced to leave her academic gig in Boston to join Ford and Tench, who are interested in utilizing her research as part of their new criminal profiling unit in Virginia. She moves down the coast, away from the woman she loves, to live in a lonely apartment complex while working to understand why men

Does James Fitzgerald Still Work For The FBI? The Unabomber Profiler Has An Active Career


Discovery’s limited series Manhunt: Unabomber retraces the 17-year bombing spree that hung over America from 1978 to 1995 — a case cracked in large part by FBI profiler James Fitzgerald (played by Sam Worthington in the show). He’s gone on to lead an extensive career investigating some of the last century’s most notorious crimes: JonBenét Ramsey’s 1996 murder, the 2001 anthrax investigation, the Beltway sniper attacks of 2002. But now two decades later, many viewers may wonder if James Fitzgerald still works for the FBI.

According to his website, he officially retired from the bureau in 2007, but has continued to explore forensic linguistics in various professional capacities. He’s done analysis for his Virginia-based company, The Academy Group, consulted on TV shows like Criminal Minds and AE’s Killer Profiler, and chronicled his life across three books in his memoir series, A Journey to the Center of the

‘Criminal Minds’ Protest: Thomas Gibson Fans ‘Still Standing’ #NoHotchNoWatch One Year Anniversary [Opinion]

Criminal Minds fans got the shock of their lives exactly one year ago today as it was announced that Thomas Gibson had been fired by ABC and CBS. Gibson fans sprang into action quickly, spawning the Twitter protest organization #NoHotchNoWatch.

#NoHotchNoWatch met on Twitter each Wednesday night at 9 p.m. to tweet about Thomas Gibson during the hour they normally watched Thomas on Criminal Minds. Each Wednesday for 11 years the Gibson fans had glued themselves to their television sets to watch Criminal Minds, but now that hour is spent on Twitter.

The Criminal Minds boycott by #NoHotchNoWatch has continued for a full year. The group at first refused to watch the show and sought to trend on Twitter every Wednesday night instead. As their movement grew, #NoHotchNoWatch is now boycotting all programming on both ABC and CBS as well as Thomas Gibson’s old show, Criminal Minds.

#NoHotchNoWatch is planning to hold a

Where Is James Fitzgerald Now? The FBI Profiler Is Still Busy Working On Cases

You’ve heard of the Unabomber, but the name James Fitzgerald may not ring a bell. That’s why Discovery’s new mini-series Manhunt: Unabomber is putting the spotlight back on Fitzgerald, the FBI agent and criminal profiler who caught Ted Kaczynski. The show follows Fitzgerald from 1995 when he joins the investigation to the Unabomber’s 1996 capture to the trial the following year, and what James “Fitz” Fitzgerald is doing now won’t come as a surprise to you when you look back on his career.

Discovery’s eight-episode series, premiering August 1, gives an in-depth look at how Fitzgerald, played by Avatar‘s Sam Worthington, took down the Unabomber using forensic linguistics. At the time, it was a new and unorthodox way to find suspects that put Fitzgerald at odds with his co-workers. However, ultimately, it was the key to solving the case, which Newsweek

‘Criminal Mnds’ season 13: will you still watch it without Thomas Gibson?

The elite team of FBI profilers at the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) in #Criminal Minds hunts down the most-twisted criminals in the country and tries to stop them before they can attack again. One of the CBS show’s foundations is #Thomas Gibson, who played the role of Aaron Hotchner. Also known as Hotch by his colleagues, Hotchner was the Unit Chief of the BAU. He lacked wit and humor, where people can seldom see him smile but he was loved for being firm and determined. In 2016, fans bid goodbye to one of the most fan-favorite characters of the police procedural series.

Special Agent Aaron Hotchner, BAU

Gibson started in “Criminal Minds” in 2005 as Supervisory #Special Agent Aaron Hotchner, married to his high school sweetheart Haley (Meredith Monroe), whom he shared a son named Jack (Cade Owens).

Hotch went through a lot because of his dedication to his

Cancel Bear vs. CBS, week 27: ‘Criminal Minds’ is still a likely renewal

CBS’ renew/cancel standings for week 27 of the 2016-17 season check in on the shows that haven’t yet been renewed.

Here are the standings, and here’s an explanation of the Bear’s methodology.

 

An annual rite of spring came to pass last week when CBS picked up most of its schedule for next season, as it’s done in March for each of the past several seasons.

The big renewal didn’t include several noteworthy shows, however, so let’s take a look at where things stand going into the final stretch of the season.
