Criminal Minds is a police procedural that debuted on CBS on September 22, 2005. The series follows a team of profilers from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) based in Quantico, Virginia. The BAU is part of the FBI National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime. The show differs from many procedural dramas by focusing on profiling the criminal, called the unsub or "unknown subject", rather than the crime itself.

The series follows special agents Aaron Hotchner, Dr. Spencer Reid, Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, David Rossi and Penelope Garcia trying to profile the unsub.

For those who haven’t yet caught this rivetting series, Season 1 starts on MNet at 21h30 on June 23 with Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders “The Harmful One”

A specialized International Division tackles international crimes, in this spin-off of the popular drama. In the series premiere, the unit travel to Thailand when three American volunteers go missing in Bangkok.
