Hi ! Renxkyoko Iglesias here .
I have been binge-watching Criminal Minds these last few weeks, and plan to watch all 11 seasons of the show. I’m now on Season 3 , Ep.15. Each season has at least 23 episodes. In other words , I have already watched 61 episodes.
Criminal Minds is a police procedural crime drama that focuses on profiling the ” unsub ” or the unidentified subject, the person who commits the crime, rather than the crime itself. There are always 7 ” behavioral analysts at any one time that work at FBI’s BAU or Behavioral Analysis Unit based in Quantico.. Check out Wikipedia for the general synopsis.
To those who watch CM……. have you ever wondered why there’s a special jet that fly these profilers to any place in the US ( even to Mexico ) anytime their assistance is requested ? Are they the only people working as profilers in the whole USA ?
My professor in Advanced Forensics says yes. He even suggests that anyone planning to take up Forensics Psychology as a profession might want to change his/her major, because , guess what, the federal government has only one or two positions available for forensic psychologist. States don’t employ forensic psychologists, nor, for that matter, profilers. That’s why there’s one episode where the 7 FBI behavioral analysts from Quantico get a call from LAPD to assist them in tracking a serial killer. And this is LA we’re talking about, folks. So, it is true, California does not have its own profilers.
I have a crush on Dr. Spencer Reid, the geek/nerd /genius in the team. He’s thin, always has that disheveled look, shy, awkward…… my kind of guy. ^^”
Oh, and please, please, please, wish me luck. I submitted my resume 2 weeks ago for the position of Criminalist 1, an entry level position that is now available in our city’s law enforcement HQ. Actually, I applied last year yet, but there was no opening. I was told though I’d be notified when there’s a position available, and got a notification last month, thank you very much. . I’m sure there are dozens and dozens of applicants that appplied, but I hope, they are all like me, with no experience ( after all , it’s only for Criminalist 1 or another name, Forensic Science analyst ), and I hope they will consider me because I have 2 degrees that are relevant to the profession, Cell and Molecular Biology and Forensics Biology. I’m going to pray to all the saints in heaven because this is my dream job. * ponders * But what if I didn’t get the job…. does it mean, the holy saints rejected my prayers ? TT_TT
This is all for now. Thank you for reading.
