mstaken April 16, 2014 Author Share April 16, 2014 (edited) As if my original list weren't long enough... I love the moments of lightness, warmth and humor that were subtly woven in but well-earned those first four or so seasons. The show is so understandably dark overall that those moments were all the more special. I love how the show casts its one-episode characters: victims, Unsubs, family members, suspects, etc. There have been a few missteps, of course, but overall I've been wildly impressed. I love the wonderfully complex, wholly believable relationship between Reid and Diana and how Reid's own fears about becoming mentally ill "just like his mother" were depicted. I love that this is a crime show which celebrates intelligence, deductive reasoning, insight, persistence and quiet courage over sheer brawn. I love how much I've learned from this show: the statistics and facts about a wide variety of subjects and the more general insights into psychology and human nature. And, as mentioned above, the thought-provoking quotes at the beginning and end of each episode. I, um, may or may not actually write many of them down ;) ...And pretty much all things Reid :) Edited April 16, 2014 by mstaken 2 Link to comment
