I'm going to have to strongly disagree with the negative reviews. I've never watched any Criminal Minds, but I absolutely love this Beyond Borders. Having to deal with the most craziest scenarios I've ever heard of, plus the fact that these investigations are being dealt with in foreign countries/overseas with different laws & ethics. makes it that much more interesting. Definitely give it a shot if you are looking for something new to watch. Everyone's opinion about shows are different. Don't allow a negative review impact your decision on picking up a new show. Plus, ITS BEEN RENEWED! Woohooooo!! Bring on Season 2!! :-D

Horrible. Horrible acting, boring unbelievable plot line, bullshit characters. Horrible green screen usage. All in all MAJOR FLOP

This is not like ur typical Criminal Minds, Law & Order SVU, or CSI vibe. It is much LESS INTENSE, not in a bad way, just in a much different way, which can take some getting used to. Initially, I did not really like the show, so I avoided watching it, until nothing else was on tv, then I binge watched basically the whole season at once, & it grew on me. I started to get what was different about it & began to form a bond w/the characters. Which by the way, I am happy to see much of the cast I have loved & missed from other shows. This shows major difference from the norm of those I mentioned above, is that it tends to have a more positive & happy outcome, it is less gruesome & sad. It is meant to show u the more uplifting side of these stories, the ones where not everybody is a body & evidence, but people who r lucky to often be found alive & rescued. Personally, I think maybe the fact that all the good crime dramas r going away, maybe the writers felt w/the current state of the world as of late, maybe ppl have enough drama & death by the end of their local news cast & they decided to try & give us the same crime dramas we love, but with a happy ending for a change. I hope it lasts another season, to give the characters a chance to grow & evolve a little more, to give us a chance to love them as much as the characters on the original Criminal Minds. I say, give it a chance, each episode I watched I felt was better then the last. the first few were rough for me to sit thru.

Terrible. Boring. Filled with cliches. Poor acting. Lame writing. No story. Left it after 3 episodes.

Boring as fuck, mediocre acting, full of stereotypes. I couldn't agree more with @gmctech.

avatar

I have to also disagree with the negative comments as a fan of the criminal minds franchise I am greatly saddend by the end of another criminal minds

avatar

As always, only Americans can solve everything. Do you really think other country's police forces are incapable of solving crimes?

avatar

Enjoyed this show not a fan of the normal criminal minds. I like Alana de la Garza in most things she does. I admit I am a procedural junkie though this was a little different with as previously stated the overseas foreign elements.

avatar

Just crap- Poor acting. Bad plot line. Full of clichès.

I had hope for this series, as I really enjoyed Crossing Lines, but beyond the stock establishing shots, this was obviously made on the cheap on a back lot, and despite a solid cast, it doesn't rise above fair - a 7 out of 10. The plots are sloppy and solutions are improbable.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
