My Rating

Season Info

A procedural thriller about the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, which profiles criminals to solve crimes. The ensemble drama relies on the diversity of the team, which includes a young genius and a seasoned leader tortured by a past case. Unlike other crime dramas that focus on science, this series is very cerebral and almost Holmesian in its deductive analysis of the crimes and their perpetrators.

Genre: Action & Adventure

Network: CBS

Premiere Date: Sep 25, 2013

Despite not quite living up to its billing, and having somewhat of a goofy premise, I really enjoyed "Final Shot".

It's still one of the most thrilling procedurals you'll find on network television.

You have to give the nod to the criminal storyline in "Inspiration" - which was delightfully macabre.
