ABOUT THE BOOK

Criminal Minds first aired on CBS, and ran from September 22, 2005 until May 10, 2006. For the initial season, the program was produced jointly by The Mark Gordon Company, Touchstone Television, and Paramount Television. CBS.com cites Erica Messer as the Showrunner and longest serving writer on Criminal Minds (Criminal Minds: Cast). Along with Messer, Criminal Minds Season 1 was produced and directed largely by Mark Gordon and Ed Bernero (Variety, Criminal Minds).

Criminal Minds follows an elite team of FBI criminal analysts, known as the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), as its members travel the country working to solve grisly murder mysteries and arrest the serial killers responsible for them.

Criminal Minds premiered amid a rush of other crime-solving programs such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Crossing, Law & Order: SUV, and Medium, many of which were also broadcast on CBS. Given this context, the immediate task for Criminal Mindsthe latest newcomer to the television-crime-scene-investigation crazewas to somehow set itself apart from the crowd. To accomplish this, the show relied on both its cast of actors and its focus on psychological profiling.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

In portraying these crimes, each episode of Criminal Minds becomes its own mini-narrative placed within a larger overall story in which the BAU team works together to become not only a professional team, but a personal team as well. As the season unfolds, characters personal struggles, fears, and doubts are revealed, and as they are, teammates must figure out how best to help each other. In this way, the members of the BAU team are constantly focused on providing relief and help to those in need, despite being surrounded by a world of deranged, senseless, and bloody killings.

This fundamental theme is attested to by Agent Gideon in episode 6, L.D.S.K., when he reminds Agent Reid that for a psychological profiler, the most effective weapon is the ability to empathizeto humanize an unsubs victim (TV.com, Criminal Minds: Episode Guide).

Gideon tells Reid that only by reversing the dehumanizing effects of crime and murder, returning to the victims their dignity and worth as individuals, can an effective and accurate profile of the perpetrator be constructed. Thus, solving crimes and arresting serial killers is ultimately an act of recognizing and maintaining the value inherent in each individual victim...
