Criminal Minds is an American police procedural crime drama television series that debuted on CBS on September 22, 2005, and aired its last episode on February 19, 2020. The crime-fighting series was created and produced by Jeff Davis. With 15 seasons and 324 episodes in total, the show became one of the network’s most-watched shows throughout its 15-year-long run.
What drew the audiences toward CBS’s top-rated police procedural crime drama, Criminal Minds, was the portrayal of our beloved characters as the knowledgeable Supervisory Special Agents of the FBI as members of its Behavioural Analysis Unit.
These agents are known as Profilers, who specialize in studying human behavior. They have studied the language of actions and have critically examined how the criminals function in their natural habitat. We have seen these fantastic agents dive deep into the criminals’ history, including their childhood, to seek answers about the whereabouts of their latest victim.
Throughout its fifteen seasons, fans were introduced to numerous characters, many of which have left a longing impression in our minds. The Criminal Minds cases were primarily episodic, so the narratives’ success and the ability to hold long-term audiences largely depended on the characters within the BAU.
One of the fans’ all-time favorite characters is Emily Prentiss. She is exceptionally well-traveled due to her upbringing as an ambassador’s daughter and her previous assignments while at Interpol. Her first appearance was in the second season, and her last was in the fifteenth season. Her skills and her capabilities make her an amazing and talented supervisory agent.
Fans’ favorite video of her was a blooper event where the character’s true acting breakthrough. The scene dawns with many members of the BAU lined up and stepping inside a house. Everything appears pretty standard-issue, but then Joe Mantegna’s David Rossi trips over something, which causes an unexpected and immediate reaction in the actors behind him. The following line is Gubler’s character, who does an extravagant motion imitating Mantegna’s actions.
Then came the role of Paget, who cackles, flaps her arms wide, and then shuffles off to the side, acting like she is stumbling. It was a laughable moment and greatly enjoyed by viewers.
