Matthew Gray Gubler enters the lounge of a hotel on Paseo de la Reforma with Criminal Minds 15th Anniversary 2005 2020 Thank You For The Memories Shirt. He greets the press who attends to learn about his experience in his 15 seasons in Criminal Minds, a series that will be broadcast next Monday at 9 p.m. To welcome her performs an act of magic and confesses that she always wanted to be a magician or a film director. But a “joke” changed his future and has now become the actor who filmed more in this production made by CBS. “I did the casting for this project as an experiment, as a joke, and suddenly I was on a show that has lasted 15 years. Since then I have had the opportunity to work with thousands of actors and directors who have done a great job. That somehow opened the horizon for me in a way I can’t explain,” he said at a round table with national media.
Matthew Gray Gubler played dr. Spencer Reid, an IQ agent capable of deciphering the behaviors of wrongdoers, for 15 years and more than 320 episodes. Therefore, the conclusion of the story had a very special meaning. “In the last scene we filmed I was in a sleeping bag and I had to operate the camera and call action. So I gathered the whole team in the little room where we were filming so that all the energy from the crew was part of that final scene,” he recalls.

The actor remembers that this final anecdote is similar to the one he had when he first played Dr. Spencer Reid, because “the first shot we did in the whole story, when we shot the pilot 15 years ago, was my character reading a book. And on that occasion they let me control the camera because it came from management school.” In Criminal Minds, Matthew Gray Gubler not only had the opportunity to act, but also to direct 12 episodes. “They are one of my funniest memories in the last 15 years. It’s amazing. Being part of the show for so long made me create things. The director’s job is to speak the same language of every member of the production and to know them for so long gave me an advantage and I think we did unique and special episodes.”

For the actor, concluding with the broadcasts of the story after 15 years is not goodbye, because he believes that in the future the cast could be reunited. “I think one day the show will come back. It’s like a band taking a break, that at some point they have to leave the stage. Now I’m looking for what I’m going to do in my spare time for the first time in a long time.”
Matthew Gray Gubler acknowledges that the success of the series has had to do with the closeness the characters have had with their audience. “We are fortunate to have the best fans in the world. But I think the series was distinguished because the writers are very talented and created a family essence with the cast, which was broadcast on screen and reached the homes of the public as an extension of their own family.” Criminal Minds is one of the longest-running series on television. She was nominated three times for the Emmy and in 2017 was recognized as the Favorite Crime or Drama Television Program, at the People’s Choice Awards. The Criminal Minds 15th Anniversary 2005 2020 Thank You For The Memories Shirt in last episode will air next Monday at 9 pm on AXN.
Four will air a new chapter of Criminal Minds tonight. Just as it has been doing, with its corresponding flocks, for more than 8 years. Specifically since January 13, 2011, when the second Mediaset network and the police series crossed their paths for the first time. That distant winter Thursday began a prolific relationship that reaches to this day and which already has an expiration date. CBS announced earlier this year that Criminal Minds will bid off the hearing next year with its fifteenth season.
It will make it a survivor within the current television. First in the United States, where it is already one of the 20 longest-lived fictionals in history. And then in Spain, where it resists as the only foreign series that is broadcast in prime time of one of the main generalists. Hence, within the daily life of turning on the TV and finding a chapter of Criminal Minds in Four, we are really facing a rarity of other times. From another time where foreign series were more common in our programming and American police procedures were the order of the day. Criminal minds, however, have managed to bury almost all of them, with the only exceptions of NCIS and Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, which are still broadcasting with 16 and 20 seasons behind them, respectively. For this reason, serve the following article as a tribute to a series that, without pretending, became a history of television.

And we say without pretending because, at first glance, Criminal Minds landed on the CBS grid without a particularly revolutionary idea that distanced her from other contemporaries. An FBI team – the Behavioral Analysis Unit (UAC) – who studies the psychological profiles of criminals to stop them did not seem the newest premise for revitalizing gender. However, this did not prevent more than 19.5 million viewers from serving the first episode. An absolute success that was made possible, among other things, by the intelligent programming strategy of the American channel, which launched the series just after the premiere of the sixth season of C.S.I., its great flagship and to which Criminal Minds, like many others procedural, so much must.
After that resounding reception, the series created by Jeff Davis jumped into Wednesday to remain in remarkable records. Something very meritorious when sharing broadcast day with Perdidos, which at the time was in its second season. Thus, the inevitable happened the following year: that Criminal Minds caught the attention of international television stations. Here in Spain, the first one to broadcast it – and continue to broadcast it – was AXN in mid-April 2006. On Thursday 21 of that month he arrived at Telecinco, which offered in open his first 4 seasons.
As a result of the merger with Mediaset, the fifth installment premiered directly on Cuatro, where it remains one of the ‘classics’ of its grid. And although it no longer sums the data of yesteryear, it still remains in the mean of the string (5.4%) thanks to a loyal redoubt of followers and a chain, which we are dealing with here, which has never hesitated when it comes to broadcasting each new season in a timely manner.
Like any long-running series, Criminal Minds has also undergone major changes in its casting over the years. One of the first and most relevant was the farewell of Mandy Patinkin, who starred in the first two seasons as detective Jason Gideon. His sensitive low was covered by Joe Mantegna, who then took the lead role and has been playing David Rossi since the sixth episode of the third season. A long career he has shared, among others, with Matthew Gray Gubler, the only one who can say that he has participated in all episodes of Criminal Minds. 313 deliveries issued to the date on which he has given life to Spencer Reid. A figure only comparable to the 311 of Kirsten Vangsness (Penélope García) and 292 of A.J. Cook (Jennifer Jareau).
Two who may have reached these numbers were Thomas Gibson and Sheman Moore, who, like Gray and Vangsness, were also part of the first episode of the series. However, both left the ship for very different reasons. Gibson did so in the summer of 2016, when CBS fired him brilliantly for kicking a screenwriter on the course of filming. An abrupt ending for the actor, who had been playing Aaron Hotchner for 11 years, and a hard blow to the series, which months earlier already suffered the departure of Moore, which left his role as Derek Morgan to embark on new acting projects.
Beyond their audiences and their longevity, the success of Criminal Minds can be measured by the fact that it came to have up to two spin-offs. However, both turned out to be failed at best. The first to premiere CBS was Criminal Minds: Suspicious Conduct, starring Forest Whitaker and penélope Garcia’s character (Kirsten Vangsness) as a link between this spin-off series and the original. Suspicious conduct came to light in February 2011 and was cancelled three months later for its poor audience data.
More travel had Criminal Minds: No Borders, which reached both seasons with Gary Sinise at the helm of the cast. Issued between March 2016 and May 2017, this second spin-off passed without making much noise on the CBS grill and by Cuatro, which broadcast it open in Spain. These stumbles didn’t matter to the American channel, which still had in the mother series one of the great strongholds of its fictional catalog. Condition that will hold until next year, when it broadcasts the last 10 episodes of the history of the Criminal Minds. 10 episodes that will close an era in television in general and in the police procedure in particular, for at times Criminal Minds 15th Anniversary 2005 2020 Thank You For The Memories Shirt where all the series seem compelled to be complex and sophisticated, Criminal Minds has survived the course of the years while still being what it has always been: a good and self-concluding weekly entertainment.
