After a fourth woman goes missing in Seattle in a period of four months, the BAU is brought in to track down the abductor before he kidnaps again.
2 Compulsion
The team of investigators tries to capture a serial arsonist who has been terrorizing a college campus in Tempe, Arizona. Most of the evidence from the fires had been burned beyond recognition, so the BAU must rely on psychological analysis to identify the firestarter.

10 The Popular Kids

The team travels to New Jersey where several people have been poisoned, one fatally, with LSD 10 times more potent than the street version.

It's really good and I love the diverse cast of characters and the story of it. It's quite realistic and everything is explained well and some of the villains really make you just wanna reach through the screen and help the victims. It does make you tear up sometimes. I can't believe how this show is as old as it is. The cast doesn't age! It's now on Netflix well 12 seasons are so go give it a watch if you love suspenseful crime dramas!

Literally the worst place to buy a show . I have been trying to catch up with criminal minds and I decided to buy season 14 and 15 on google play. I was charged 34.99 SIX TIMES when I clicked to buy it once and didn’t even get my season. they refunded me only 5 times and when I decided to give it another shot, I was charged 34.99 AGAIN with no season 14 . google play is the worst place to buy a show. That’s just my opinion.
