Criminal Minds, Part 2

March 22nd, 2006 by Michael Moncur in TV

I wrote about the CBS TV show Criminal Minds a while ago. While it’s still not the best show on TV, it has improved a bit, and they still include quotations in the narration on a regular basis. I’ve received several emails asking about quotations on previous episodes, so I’ve collected them as I watched. Here’s the second batch of quotations featured on the show, from approximately episodes 7 to 11:

Criminal Minds airs Wednesdays at 9:00 PM Eastern/Pacific on CBS. The next episode is tonight. Tune in next Wednesday for another batch of quotations from the show. (See part one for the first batch.)

    Your reference to “…when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” as coming from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, (Sherlock Holmes) is not totally correct. Doyle was referring to what is known as Occam’s razor, which according to the Wikipedia encyclopedia “is a principle attributed to the 14th-century English logician and Franciscan friar William of Ockham.” It goes on to state: “…that the explanation of phenomenon should make as few assumptions as possible, eliminating those that make no difference in the observable predictions of the explantory hypothesis or theory.” Or in other words, after you’ve eliminated everything else, the answer/truth is what remains.
