CBS’ dark procedural is all new tonight with an episode that seems to draw from another popular serial killer driven show. The creepiest show on network TV features a killer who is training teenagers to be weapons of destruction. It might sound crazy, but so does Fox’s “The Following” and they seem to make that thing work. Here’s the CBS preview for tonight’s all new episode.

When teenagers who were reported missing are suspected of a series of mass murders in Chicago, the BAU investigates their whereabouts to find a motive for the crimes. Also, Morgan has conflicting feelings when his girlfriend takes her job at the hospital as seriously as he takes his.

Sounds like that classic “Criminal Minds” mix of finding the serial killer at 9:45, and then leaving the last segment for Morgan and his girlfriend to hash things out. Morgan needs a girlfriend who can mirror his intensity. Also he feels like the last character to get a full time main squeeze on the show. I would note that often the show’s significant others can find themselves in mortal danger, so that could be keeping away the dating market.

The promo for tonight’s show gives us more insight into the brainwashed element of the killer, but nothing with Morgan and his lady problems.

The BAU is like the bizarro Dunder Mifflin. Everything on “The Office” was without significance while on “Criminal Minds” life and death decisions are made while ordering coffee. See just how the team tracks down this week’s UnSub on tonight’s all new “Criminal Minds”.
