The BAU assume the unsub has already murdered his victims.
Called in by local police departments to assist in solving crimes of a serial and/or extremely violent nature where the perpetrator is unknown (referred to by the Unit as the unknown subject or unsub for short), the BAU uses the controversial scientific art of profiling to track and apprehend the unsub.
Profiling entails coming up with basic characteristics of the unsub and the victims (referred to as the victimology), using evidence from the case and matching that information to historic precedents and psychological analyses as a means to solve the case.
Because of the nature of the work conducted by the BAU - the work being time consuming and psychologically demanding - its members are fiercely loyal to the Unit and to its other members.
Also because of the work's overall demanding nature, not many members of the BAU have been able to maintain a happy or stable family life. I have always been interested in criminal psychology, and after going to school for a degree in Criminal Justice, someone (my professor) told me that this show was starting up and to watch it. It really goes in depth with how profiling really works.
It keeps a great story line all the way through, with many twists and bizarre themes.
The characters in the show are established very well, with interesting personalities that really hold the show together.
