It's basically glorified torture porn. Yeah, it's good and I love it to death (…sometimes) because Derek fucking Morgan (Shemar) is brilliant, Gideon (Inigo) is superb, and Elle (Lola Glaudini) is god-tier. The rest are okay, but I'm not huge on them, especially in later seasons. The first season isn't TOTALLY torture-porny. It has balance in men getting tortured, women getting tortured, and most of the torture n o t being shown. People might not like my opinion, but the first season was the best. Not only was the team dynamic fantastic, but everyone perfectly clicked and the word-vomit unsub finding scenes weren't so corny. I'd recommend watching season 1, not watching the season 1 finale, and airing caution if you like it enough to proceed to season 2. Inigo's resign was justified, though.
