I started watching Criminal Minds back in March. I had put it off for so long because they had 11 seasons worth on Now TV and I wasn’t sure that I was ready for that level of commitment. You know how it works though, I let my guard down, one thing lead to another and I was in need of something to cushion the blow of ‘Bones‘ going away forever 😦
I fell in love with all of the immediately, although ‘Inigo Montoya‘ (Mandy Patinkin) was my initial reason for wanting to watch it. I just wanted to see him in something where he’s not looking for the six-fingered-man.
Although the show is amazing and I do tend to binge watch it, I do have to take a ‘psycho break’ now and again. There are some sick, sick, sickos out there.
Apparently some of the episodes are taken from real life cases. Which is somewhat of a relief because if they have someone making all of this s**t up then they are clearly disturbed and maybe shouldn’t be around people.
I’m up to season 8 now. I have 4 more seasons to go before NowTv take it away from me forvever!
The stories are awesome, the characters are extraordinary. My favourites being Prentiss and Reid.
It’s scary at times (if you’re a wuss like me), sad, exciting and definitely has it’s funny moments. There’s also lots of geeky references courtesy of Reid. He’s very ‘Sheldon Cooper/Sherlock’.

Anyway, I have at least another 100 episodes left to binge watch! So buh-bye 😀
