So sad this show is cancelled. It doesn't carry the intensity of the original Criminal Minds, but I enjoyed the traveling to different places. I also like the characters. I'm okay without the plot integrations. Too often touchy feely storylines lead to character drama that takes the story away from the original premise viewers fell in love with, ie. traveling the world solving murders!

I really really want to like this- so I keep watching. But the part that I find that is missing is integrated storylines. I believe the team likes each other because I keep being told so. But I never see it. They meet up and solve he case and go their separate ways. I get more details and backstory on the bad guys of each episode than I ever do on the main characters. Why bother casting Sherri Stringfield if she's going to be a background character? Use her! Cast other great characters to back up the other leads on the team. If you want me to like and invest in these characters make them people instead purposes. Annie Funke is awesome! Give her something to sink her teeth into other than scientific monologues. And the writing is great for the cases- but one dimensional characters won't carry this show for very long. People watch shows for the whole experience. If there isn't anything beyond science we can watch reality science on public broadcast networks . We watch this for an experience- so up the ante or fold. They've had more than a season to develop something we can love. Case after case isn't going to get anyone hooked. Introducing Sinise's son is a great move! Add some more into the other characters would be great too! Who do these people leave behind when they do a case? How are their lives effected? It's time. It's time.

I love this show. The story lines are intriguing because of the complex issue of local law enforcement sparring with the American "gold standard" ("truth, justice, and the American way") I, too, like Gary Sinese and De la Garza (big mistake cancelling Forever) and the pathologist is a unique character. Kanga and Duke _ your comment about it always being in Asia- they are not always in Asia - except that there are more than 50 different countries in Asia comprising about 4.3 billion people. That is 60% of the world population so you're bound to run into a few Asians.

Love this show. The standard Criminal Minds has become so predictable and so boring. This show always has a twist because of the International implications.

I wanted to like this show so much. I love the cast, but it just isn't hitting the mark for me. I watched all but the last three episodes. They are still on my DVR. I cannot force myself to watch them, nor can I make myself delete them. I wish it had something to offer, but I cannot find it.

Won't watch because of Sinese? That just makes you stupid!

Once I saw Sinise was in it I gave it a wide berth

Criminal Minds Beyond Borders is a good show. Glad to see Gary Sinise back with a show. It is much better than the other Criminal Minds spin-off, Suspect Behavior. Only thing I don't like is the annoying things appearing during the show. Annoying things such as advertisements for other shows, hashtags and the CBS logo in the lower right corner. It would be nice to watch the show without the annoying distractions.

So glad it's not just me. I really wanted to like this show because I love Gary Sinese but I just can't get into it. I keep watching and every week I wonder why. Too bad.
