I couldn't sit through a single episode. It's the most cliche piece of trash on TV.
It takes all the things present in other similar, but equally boring, crime shows (Law and Order, NCIS, CSI etc.) and lumps them together into an unfocussed ball of crap.
Look, it's the kind-of-weird-but-smart guy copying Monk, the sexy smart girl who occassionally says something to move the plot along, the suave funny man who says funny joke jokes to make everyone else pretend to be upset at his lack of focus, and all the other circus performers -- all working together and using phrases like "cross-reference" to pretend they're being detective and stuff.
The acting is laughably bad, the story lines are horrifically shit, and the characters are quite literally a joke. Plus it uses that annoying 30fps brightly lit camera style. Can't stand it.
I could at least see how people could enjoy the other stuff like CSI, since it at least pretends to be detectivey. Criminal Minds is the equivalent of a Dan Brown novel.
