okay so this is only the first episode so i may be raving a little soon but i must say that i am extremly impressed with what i saw theres action suspense thrills so much going on here lots of excitement its quite graphic ill admit but if your willing to try to ignore it its well worth it


Don't believe the haters... admittedly there are some cliches that grind like the reason he is a good profiler is cos of his father, but despite this, I still find this show very compelling and watchable, particularly with the upcoming demise of Criminal Minds and apparently MindHunter. And I think there are some more interesting twists soon to be revealed.


Extremely predictable, unbelievable characters, clichéd as all hell. The premise itself had potential, but it's not being used well at all here.


Two well cast actors and two terrible ones. In my opinion the male leads are the best actors on this show. The females, unfortunately, are terrible for the most part. The show has some interesting themes and despite some obvious flaws. It keeps me interested. What I find frustrating is stupid things being written in for ease of plot. For example a “profiler” who doesn’t believe that murderers are created, what year is this set in? Overall good dumb fun!


This show is not written, acted and casted well. I have watched 5 episodes and I think that is enough for me.


I’m diggin’ the concept of the show... I’ll keep watching before saying anything more.


Now, this...this is what I call proper entertainment. I was drawn in with the premiere itself, which is a praiseworthy feat. And given how with the other new/newish shows that (I) started around the same time and was already watching, and how, even once I was further along into them, I still wasn't into it, you can imagine how refreshing this show was and how refreshing for me, it was to be watching, and how much more that came to light once I was further along into it, too. Furthermore, while there were episodes that I neither liked or disliked, even they seemed more entertaining and appealing than those other shows as a whole, in hindsight. I guess it was just a testament to preference. That, somehow, my subconscious was more captivated by this show or something about it, for some reason. Stuff like that is so weird, isn't it? Frankly, I don't get it. Anyway, I think this is an underrated show that has probably passed under the radar for a lot of people, a hidden gem. My current state of memory may be biased or unreliable because the only shows that I've watched, those of which are in recent memory, specifically, are all fairly new shows so I'm not exactly that well-versed when it comes to the number of shows that I've watched and whatnot, but this one just seemed and seems like it'll be underappreciated despite being a surprisingly decent show, all because it's a police procedural, most of all. And I get that. It's understandable. But all I can say is that you shouldn't prematurely judge or have expectations that it'll be like any other police procedural, at least, if it leads to choosing to not watch it. At the very least, give it a shot and go from there. If you like it, you like it. If you don't, you don't.


Another show I could binge watch all episodes at once. Hope it gets a season 2.


Like the show very much because the show sometimes is so dumb that at least it has a real life feeling.


This is so cheesy and obvious. Is this written for people with IQ < 50? Seriously... Every episode is the same - he goes somewhere, gets in a fight, people just commit they did it without a reason and case solved. This is an offence to every decent human being. I'm done...
