CRIM­I­NAL MINDS

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

Chan­nel 7, Thurs­day, 9pm ★★★★ If the trick to good act­ing is to make it ap­pear you’re not act­ing at all, then the cast of Crim­i­nal Minds oc­ca­sion­ally fails in its ob­jec­tive. Then again, the cast al­ways gets blamed for these things when it’s the scriptwrit­ers and pro­duc­ers who de­serve a clip across the ear. There are a cou­ple of scenes in this episode so wooden the ac­tors might as well have saved them­selves the ef­fort of mem­o­ris­ing the script and stood there read­ing their lines from pa­per. The odd thing about Crim­i­nal Minds is that, de­spite its fail­ings, it can grip you to the point where you’ll feel like sleep­ing with the light on. Tonight’s episode does that as the Be­havioural Anal­y­sis Team tracks for­mer Navy SEAL Luke Dolan, who has done away with six em­ploy­ees at an in­ter­net se­cu­rity firm. Dolan has a delu­sion dis­or­der so acute he can’t even recog­nise his par­ents. Dr Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler, pic­tured far right) reck­ons Dolan will continue to kill un­til our team stops him in his tracks.
