Criminal Minds: Season 12 is a slight step down from previous years due to the drastic cast changes that began with Shemar Moore’s departure in the eleventh season and now the firing of Thomas Gibson. Still, I do enjoy the core cast and the stories are compelling enough.

Criminal Minds: Season 11 still has some entertainment value mainly for its cast, though it is a letdown after a nice 10th season, but seeing the departure of another veteran cast member makes me wonder if next year will be its last which will be hurt once Thomas Gibson is gone following his much publicized dismissal.

The tenth season of “Criminal Minds”, while not great, is still quite strong and the ensemble cast including newcomer Jennifer Love Hewitt (albeit in her one and only season) makes the series as enjoyable and enduring as it has been going on 10 years.

The writing is crisp and given the turmoil of two main cast members making their exits, I’m impressed that they were to keep some consistency. Like the seasons 3-5, we get more and more team-centric character arcs to balance the crime-drama stories.

“Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” certainly had the potential to be like “NCIS: LA” in distinguishing itself from its parent series, however what makes the original successful isn’t so much the cases but the chemistry between the cast, which is the failure this series had from the start. Forest Whitaker, as good of an actor as he might be, was completely wrong for the role and the rest, in terms of the writing, seemed to try too hard to force something to come together rather than let it form naturally.
