According to RedditCriminal Minds fans basically agree that Dr. Spencer Reid and Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore) are the best BAU duo of the entire series. After deleting a user started the conversation by holding a poll to see who Criminal Minds viewers thought was the best pair of agents. A total of 536 fans voted, with Reed and Morgan taking first place with a whopping 220 votes. Morgan and Penelope Garcia came in second with 88, Morgan and Emily Prentiss came in third with 81, Reed and JJ Jaro came in fourth with 56, then Aaron “Hotch” Hotchner and Prentiss with 46 and finally Hotch and David Rossi with 45.
However, it’s no surprise that fans love Morgan and Reed. The two share a brotherly bond throughout their time together, on and off screen. One of Reed and Morgan’s best moments in Criminal Minds was their character’s prank war, and Gubler has poked fun at Moore on social media before (via Twitter). Anyway, you/sixbabyraccoons points out that no matter which duo ends up being the favorite, thanks to the show’s writers, viewers have these wonderful partnerships to cheer for.
