I'm not sure if I have pimped it before but whoever isn't watching Criminal Minds, give it a chance. I find the writing pretty much consistently to be excellent and while it is a procedural, the characters have depth to them.

They also put work into their bad guys. The last episode for instance choked me up. Great performance by Alex O'Laughlin too, he managed to create a character that didn't remind me at all of Mick St.John.

I can only second this.

And in the case of Alex's performance: it actually took me a couple of scenes to even realize that he's the same guy from Moonlight. Terrific job.

I read that he would be on CM, not which episode though, but it made it easier to recognize him. Was still very impressed and by the writing, too, which made me disgusted with a serial killer while having some genuine sympathy for him by the end of the episode.

Word to this.

I loved the ending of this episode. CM tends to just punch you in the gut every once in a while. The episode with the woman who decided to be on death row rather than having the identity of her son revealed had me in tears.

Very true. They have some really good writers on that show.

Which one was that again? This Season or another? I can't recall right now.
