Critic Reviews for Criminal Minds Season 2

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Like every procedural crime series of late, Minds is stocked with weary, overworked detective types. But here they also seem bored, bitter, and unengaged.

Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

In its second season, the show does get more sophisticated in terms of effects and makeup used to portray the crime scenes and the victims.

Nov 7, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The producers and writers deserve major kudos for developing a strategy for keeping the show on the air without dumbing it down, and the second season of "Criminal Minds" sets a higher bar for this type of network series.

Nov 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The characters have been fairly well developed and individualized, and the writers are doing a pretty solid job at keeping the stories and twists fresh - fresh compared to prior episodes and, more importantly, fresh compared to the other shows out there.

    The changing from Greenaway to Prentiss was one of the best changes of the show emily made such a great memeber of the team
  • Sep 14, 2015
    There is a slight improvement about the plot, what makes this a good sequel with the same good characteristics from the first season.
