TV Equals: "It’s backdoor pilot time again, baby! Criminal Minds already had a backdoor pilot a few years ago for the Forest Whitaker led Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. I had to review all three episodes of that stinker, so I’m definitely hoping that the Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders will do better. The biggest issue (out of many) for Suspect Behavior was that it was so similar to the main show that it spun off from. They were just a team tracking down Unsubs in the USA. The hook of this new team tackling foreign cases sounds like it’s already a lot more interesting, and the cast is pretty darn good too!"
