So, like many people in the world, I suffer from anxiety, slight PTSD, and depression. My magical cocktail of "joy," we will call it. It all started about 10 years ago after my car accident, to which I was badly injured and in a coma because of. From that point until about five years ago, I was on or had tried almost every anxiety or depression medication on the market. Yup, for most of that time, I felt like a walking, talking zombie—and I was.
As someone who reads a lot about famous killers, watches a lot of documentaries about serial killers, I was so excited to see this movie. Ted Bundy is one of the most famous killers for a variety of reasons; his kill count, his methods of killing, the fact he escapes from prison twice, he was the first ever court case aired on television, and the fact that he decided to become his own council during his last trial. All this you would think make for an excellent film. Well, the jury is still out on that one.
Lately, all the rage on Netflix has been about these True Crime Documentaries. It truly is fascinating to learn why these men and women decided to do such horrible things towards other humans. With so many out there, there are some great ones and some that are not as thrilling. I have watched a fair majority of them, well pretty much all but 2 or 3. In talking with others and seeing posts online I've noticed that many people question why they did the crimes they did, how they don't get the why.
In looking at the part one of this I came to realize that most of the killers mentioned in that list were from season eight or earlier, there was no killers from the later seasons. There definitely should be as the later seasons had some great (terrible) killers as well.
Throughout the, now 14, seasons of Criminal Minds, there have been certain seasons that just capture your attention more than others, sorry season 14. Every season has a dramatic ending of course, if not why would people want to tune in for the next season. But I am talking about serious drama throughout the entire season. Certain seasons have a continuous plot, or sub plot, behind the episodes that made them more suspenseful to watch. Either just the criminals of the episodes were more intense, or the plot line throughout the season was better, everyone has their favorite ranking of a season.
In every show we all have our favorites... the issue with Criminal Minds is that the cast is arguably so awesome it is hard to rank them. From seasons one through nine, the cast stayed mostly the same with realistically two changes. This will be the focus of this piece, as I am still attempting to figure out where these newer members are to be ranked, though I will touch on issues that do occur in later seasons, as they are relevant to the character.
