Hard to think CM isn't winding down
Criminal Minds is stuck in a rut. What I loved about the Patinkin years is that at least initially the show really was about the intellectual side of criminology. Smart people doing their jobs. More or a thinking person's CSI (not that I ever watched CSI). I didn't notice the show getting more and more brutal at the time. Seeing where it has gone, looking back, it is obvious now. And I can see why Mandy wanted the hell out. Still, it remained a great show. I was hooked on the characters more than anything. And that is really where my problem with the show comes from presently. Been a few seasons now where we haven't really gotten to know Reid any better. He's my favorite. The guy suffered a drug addiction and the show hinted at a great story line only to have let it go to waste. I'm glad there was nothing like Reid compromising cases or anything tedious like that. Still. The show has lost much of its concern with the characters. Its humanity. And when it does indulge in personal scenes, it's always ALWAYS with the most annoying person on network TV. The computer girl and the weird, phony relationship with Morgan. OK, baby-momma (whatever the F that means), I was sick of that four years ago. Forget Reid. What about Hotch? Just as he's about to start a relationship, the show decides that would be a god time to start ignoring him, haha. I get it if the show is saying, look, he's OK now. Just a bit over simplified. And then again, where's Reid? Very little Reid for the last several years. I can't even remember the last time I felt like he was really even part of the show other than to stand in front of the local police finishing the hand off style presentation of serial killer profiles (which again doesn't ring true...that style of presentation). Something is broken here, guys.
Not Really Thrilled
I love this show, but I'm kinda bummed out about the new addition to the cast... I'll try to keep an open mind...
Best show ever
It's so additive sooo njoy the show and the cute smart guy !
