When Criminal Minds first came on TV, I didn’t watch. It seemed to grim, to violent for me to enjoy. Finally, some episode caught my attention and I did finally succumb. Given my interest in psychology, criminal profiling, it was a wonder I hadn’t found this show before. But now…I’m a fan. A fan particularly of the character of Spence Reid. He’s smart, charming, awkward, and placed somewhere on the autism spectrum…maybe even Asperger’s Syndrome, like my son.
These stories are about Spencer, his life and his loves since we never get to see him involved in anything more than a few awkward moments.
