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
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.

Description: Gary Sinise headlines the thrilling Criminal
Minds spinoff, Criminal Minds: Beyond
Borders – The First Season,
now arriving on DVD. Also 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.

Borders from planted pilot

created for the team’s C130 plane.
