Criminal Minds – Season 6
Personal issues are plagueing the team, ranging from Spencer Reid having constant headaches that feel like his head is going to explode, JJ who is being targeted by another government agency for a job, Penelope Garcia who has issues coping with change, and Emily Prentiss who sees her past come back to bite her in the ass. And besides all that, they’ve got plenty of interesting cases to solve!
Sound and Vision:
The image quality is consistent and in line with previous seasons meaning things look good but not excellent. Color balance and detail are decent and we didn’t spot any major compression errors.
The sound is a bit soft and lacks the spectacle that we’re getting more and more these days but does its job nicely with clear dialogues and some use of the surrounds for effects and music.

A couple of nice extras that are good for just under an hour of additional stuff. We do wonder why not all extras from the region 1 release aren’t present though.
The sixth season of Criminal Minds shakes things up quite a bit. Without going into too much detail and giving away too many spoilers, the cast gets some major overhaul which works out but not as good as it could have. Ashley Seaver is introduced as a new character who’s father is a serial killer, but her screen time and weight on the show is too low to make a lasting impression. On the other hand, we have two familiar and well-loved characters that leave. Quite upsetting but luckily it doesn’t tamper with the quality of the episodes too much.
The focus on the individual characters becomes bigger with each season but the balance between personal issues and the individual cases remains great, making for a very entertaining watch.
