Critic Reviews for Criminal Minds Season 6

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

As a whole, Criminal Minds tends to deliver storylines that transcend that of the generic police procedural.

Oct 16, 2018 | Full Review…

NCIS remains the network's procedural gold standard, but Minds isn't too far behind.

Oct 16, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

But Season six has since settled into the groove nicely, with two excellent subsequent episodes rinsing out memories of Toothy Tim.

Audience Reviews for Criminal Minds: Season 6

  • Dec 13, 2017
    They shouldn't have fired AJ. The show is not the same without her. I'm so glad they brought her back for season 7.
  • Oct 02, 2015
    Criminal Minds: season 6 is probably one of the best seasons in this series, not only because of its gripping action scenes, but also because of its twisted story that ends in an welcome unexpected way.
