Dr Reid, I love you....

So much for my operation: revival! That’s ok. I’ll just start over....

So yesterday, I watched one of my current favourite tv shows, Criminal Minds. I started watching like the third episode of the series and have missed about two in between then and yesterday’s 10th (I think) episode. The show is about a bunch of FBI profilers who work for the Behavioural Analysis Unit in Quantico. I think that’s what they originally named the series - Quantico. It was aired in September last year in the US (if I got my points right) and will now be on its second season.

Cast:
Special Agent Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin)
Special Agent Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson)
Elle Greenaway (Lola Glaudini)
Special Agent Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore)
Special Agent Dr Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler)
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, (AJ Cook)

Anyway, each of these profilers brings their own expertise to the group and they solve murders and kidnapping and such.

I love it because they’re a bunch of people who’ve got skills and solve each problem in a logical manner. They think like the criminal in order to catch the criminal. And they use cool lingo like unsub (unidentified subject).

No, I lied. I actually love the show because of Dr Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), the young genius with the three PhDs. Dr Reid is so cool in an uncool, nerdy, geeky sort of way. He’s just so 'comel' with his floppy hair parted and pushed behind his ears, and his sentences are just so adorable….

Agent Hotchner: This is Special Agent Dr. Reid.
Man: Oh, you look too young to have gone to medical school.
Dr Reid: They are Ph.D.'s, three of them.
Man: What, are you a genius or something?
Dr Reid: I don't believe that intelligence can be accurately quantified, but I do have an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory, can read 20,000 words per minute.
[pause]
Dr Reid: Yes, I'm a genius.

Long live Criminal Minds….
