'Criminal Minds': Shemar Moore on violence, video games and 'Django Unchained'


By Kate O'Hare

On CBS' Wednesday drama "Criminal Minds," Shemar Moore plays FBI Agent Derek Morgan, one of the FBI profiling team that heads out each week from the Behavioral Analysis Unit at Quantico, Va., to hunt down killers -- usually serial killers.

With the current debate raging about the effect of on-screen violence on incidents of real-world violence, "Criminal Minds" would seem to be a natural target of the anti-violence, anti-gun movement.

Not so fast, says Moore.

  1. I'm so glad Shemar is defending the show against those charges.I think it's been unfairly singled out.

    And I'm rather teed off that CBS doesn't seem to want to bother defending the show.

    But I'm going to have to disagree with Shemar in one regard,he seems to imply that the violence has always been just alluded to.

    Unfortunately that hasn't always been the case.I've seen episodes where I thought the violence was quite graphic.

    I remember one episode in particular where the unsub was in a wheel chair and they showed him stabbing one of his victims to death.
    I was totally shocked as to how graphic it was and quite frankly it made me not want to watch the rest of the episode.

    Now to be fair to Shemar much of the time the violence is just alluded to,and for that I am very thankful.
