Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders: Season 1 DVD cover


Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders: Season 1

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/19/16

This is a good new show, and this first season DVD is a great way to get to know the show and its characters. The show is kind of an unusual spin-off of "Criminal Minds," where the group works internationally. Whether you think it works or not is something you must decide for yourself.

The show stars Gary Sinise, who was such a wonderful star of "CSI: New York," a show I still really miss. This show has a good group of characters, including Alana De La Garza's Clara; she's been great in so many shows, such as "Law & Order" and "Forever." I'm glad she's still working! The rest are fairly new faces, but they form a nice group.

The DVD has just a few good features, focusing on the show and what it does. The actors and writers all speak on camera about the show. There's also a few gag reel and more.

I can't wait to see what they do in the second season, which returns this Spring. This DVD should make a good gift for any fan of good drama, or anyone who likes to see exotic places.

One thing that's nice about CBS DVD's is that they put all of the Special Features on the last disk, so you can watch them all at once.

                             Street Date:        September 20, 2016

Description: Gary Sinise headlines the thrilling Criminal Minds spinoff, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders – The First Season, now arriving on DVDAlso starring Alana De La Garza, Daniel Henney, Tyler James Williams, and Annie Funke, the new collection of the crime drama comes with over an hour of all-new bonus content including audio commentaries, deleted scenes, a cast gag reel, and three behind-the-scenes featurettes in a 4-disc collection.

Over 68 million Americans leave the safety of our borders every year. If danger strikes, the FBI's International Response Team is called into action. Experienced unit chief Jack Garrett (Sinise) knows he can depend on the unique skills of multilingual master Clara Seger (De La Garza), ex-special ops agent Matt Simmons (Henney), technical whiz Russ "Monty" Montgomery (Williams) and medical examiner Mae Jarvis (Annie Funke). From a ritualistic human-hunter in the wilds of Thailand, to a serial slayer in the streets of Paris, to an organ harvester in the slums of Mumbai, no perpetrator can escape the combined brilliance of this elite force.
