Tv Season Info

The fifth series of the CBS procedural "Criminal Minds" follows the Behavioral Analysis Unit as they deal with a number of dangerous cases including a man who commits a mass killing in a pharmacy; a psychotic who is raping, impregnating, and then killing women after they've delivered the baby; and a case involving the muder of several homeless people in San Francisco. That last episode serves as the pilot for the spinoff series "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior." On the personal front, Hotch (Thomas Gibson) considers leaving the BAU after a difficult case, and Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore) becomes the new leader of the unit.

Critic Reviews for Criminal Minds Season 5

I still miss Mandy Patikin on this show and wasn't too happy that this was a very Garcia-light episode. Still, it was enjoyable and has me interested on what's to come next.
