Ed Bernero: (discussing Criminal Minds with Diane Haithman, Deadline Hollywood, January 6, 2010) We are very different from those shows, because at our most procedural, our show is about character. Our show is about the character of the person committing the crime, so it's all a character study. It's all psychology and human motivation, so it's different from any other show. I've said numerous times that what's unique about our show is, in every other cop show, if they don't do their jobs, somebody might get away with a crime. In our show, if we don't do our jobs, more people are going to die. Every other show investigates crimes in the past. We investigate crimes in the future.
