Criminal Minds is a show I started awhile ago, that Jyrene showed me. I was not a big fan of it at first but, it has now became one of my favorite shows. The show is about a team of FBI profilers that solve crime cases. The first episode came out September 22, 2005 and it currently has fourteen seasons and is still making more episodes. The members of the team are, Aaron Hotchner (played by Thomas Gibson), Derek Morgan (played by Shemar Moore), Spencer Reid (played by Matthew Gray Gubler), Emily Prentiss (played by Paget Brewster), Jennifer Jareau (played by A.J. Cook), Penelope Garcia (played by Kristen Vangness), Jason Gideon (played by Mandy Patinkin), Elle Greenaway (played by Lola Glaudini), and David Rossi (played by Joe Mantegna).

Aaron Hotchner

Everyone on the team calls him Hotch and he is in charge of the team. Hotch saved Spencer Reid when he got kidnaped because the kidnaper was recording the whole thing and Spencer said something only Hotch would know.

Derek Morgan

Derek is the one who does all the fighting or the one who always kicks down the doors. Sadly, Derek leaves the show in season eleven.

Spencer Reid 

Spencer is the genius, he knows the exact line and page number a word or sentence is on, from a book he just read. Matthew Gray Gubler is an actor and an author, he wrote the children’s book Rumple Buttercup. He is also the voice of Alvin from the movies Alvin and the Chipmunks. 

Emily Prentiss

Emily is a new member of the team. Her first appearance was in season two episode nine. She was the replacement for Elle Greenaway who left three episodes before.

Jennifer Jareau

Her nickname is JJ, which was given to her by Spencer Reid. She used to help Penelope Garcia with the computers but now she is one of the agents.

Penelope Garcia 

Penelope does not actually go to the crime scenes, she stays in her office and does all the researching. She recently got shot by a guy she met at a coffee shop because he thought that Penelope was spying on him.

Jason Gideon

Jason recently left the show because his wife got killed by a serial killer. The serial killer was going after Jason but since Jason was running late, his wife got killed instead. He left without telling anyone, but he did leave a note for Spencer Reid on his desk at home because he knew that Spencer would be the one to go looking for him.

Elle Greenaway 

Elle quit after killing a serial killer. When the cops showed up she claimed it was self defense. Everyone on her team knew that she killed him but did not have any evidence to prove it.

David Rossi

David just came on to the show. He joined this team because he knew Hotch from when they were in training. David gave the media some information about a case they were working when the rest of the team said not to, so not very many people trust him.
