Criminal Minds > Criminal Minds Review: Farewell, J.J. > Comments Page 2
I like JJ very much, as I do all the people in this show. But I don't think her leaving will really affect the show very much. Isn't the other chick leaving too?
Just watched new episode "Coda". I'm still totally surprised the network doesn't see that the new character Ashley/Rachel adds NOTHING to the show. The addition actually degrades the quality of the show, bringing it way way down. This is a huge blind spot. Maybe they want to totally focus on the Spin-Off which, by the way, I'll not be watching again. Once was enough to know it just doesn't have the pizzazz of the original CRIMINAL MINDS. It is a pale substitute and appears to be a wanna-be original C.M. I have no interest in it. Darn. I wish they'd bring back AJ and offer Paget a great package if she'd stay as a main character, and then lose Rachel Nichols. If the quality doesn't come back up, I wonder if they might lose some of the more seasoned actors, as any down-sliding will certainly negatively reflect on them. Can only hope. --- Joy
Bring JJ back. You let one get away and now you are messing up the show again. The little blond you are bringing on is no JJ and will never help the show.
CBS is unraveling the characters and destroying the show. Family feeling is gone already. And it just doesn't work to have one character (Garcia) take over another character's (JJ) role. Fractures the authenticity of what was, and fractures the family. New character's status in BAU is totally unbelievable. Plus, the actor' skills are so far below the rest of the ensemble, it's startling. She needs to pay some more dues by working with actors of her own caliber. It's a bit embarrassing actually. Meaning I'm embarrassed for her while watching the show. I'm a performer (musician) too, and I know it's really really bad to let the audience feel sorry for you. Anyway, the whole show now doesn't add up any more. I watched the spinoff and found it nothing special. Same old same old. And none of the characters are as compelling as the original. I also find it disturbing to see Penelope on this one. It's too weird. And how could she be so familiar with all these profilers already
Bring jj back..they're not a family without her at all! Don't let prentiss go either cuz it looks like you're about to do that with prentiss's past coming back. And its okay to bring in seaver cuz I think her and reid would be awesome together but she can't be apart of the team..make her a side character that she fits in their personal lives..(reids)..so point 1 keep jj..point 2..keep every character that is on this show. ..point 3 give reid a relationship with someone..oh added point.(morgan shirtless more often plz)..bigger picture being, put these points into your show and wahlah ratings will soar higher then they ever have been
I'm annoyed they axed JJ and cut Prentis's screentime, to save money, and then added Seaver, who's debut was heavy-handed and melodramatic. Quite honestly it also seems like they are removing all of the women, and it's a relief Garcia is still there.
What is wrong with this picture. They cbs take an exceptional series and destroy it JJ is the best actor on this series she shows emotion and empathy and is greatly appreciated by the viewing crowd. Why destroy a good thing hell a great thing. Be like all the rest of the channels and ruin your own creation there is no money reasons for her to leave other then she probably wouldn't sleep with the higher ups. What a shame.
Does anyone know of a petition we can sign to get the attention of CBS that its viewers, who need we remind them, pay their salary, wants JJ's character returned immediately? Please post anything anyone knows that we can do to get their attention. No one else can fill her shoes and it is all of them together that makes this show so good. I hope this is a sign it is on it's way down in ratings.
CBS WAKE UP! You have a hit on your hands and now that viewers are finding this show u go and screw it up with letting JJ go. I found the show about a year and half ago and can't get enough. I drive my husband crazy because I watch the same one's over and over and even record my favorites. The new "BLONDE', brought in because she looks like JJ doesn't even come close. I can say this I am a blonde and she needs alot more acting classes.
I have worked in TV, Movies and the media so I know all about ratings and if you don't bring her back as a ratings hit you definitely have jumped the shark. What a shame, you were really gettig good and if continued on the same path you might had been lucky to have a following and lifespan like Law and Order. You guys missed this one. I hope this is only a plot to bring her back because I have watched the show without her and to be honest I have yet to finish one of them. I am missing your show at this moment because it doesn't have the family feeling
So I'm confused why did they take jj off this show? does anyone know why? and who is this blonde bimbo they are trying to put in her place she needs to go she's terrible,and will never be able to fill jj's shoes, bring jj back or you will lose all your fans, just wait and see!
Criminal Minds has been my favorite show since its original airing. I was actually glad to see Elles character go, but J.J. leaving the show is devestating. It is going to change the dynamic of the characters and their interaction. Shame on you, powers that be. Bad, bad decision. Run, don't walk back to her agent and beg her back.
ill be devistated if hotchh..reid...prentis morgan and the ohter guy lol and jj go off ill die): i LOVE THEM SO MUCHHH
WOW ..IM SO TICKED I WANT BREWSTER AND COOK TO STAY ON AND ALL OF THEM TOO THEY WORK SO GREAT TOGETHER THEY ARE AMAZINGg!!!!!! YOUR JUST GONNNNAA..RUN DOWN LIKE ALL THE OTHER CBS SHOWS DID..I MEAN THIS IS MY FAV SHOW BC OF THESE PPL!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!
wowowowow wth bring jj back and u better not let prentice go.
jj almost like made the show.
penelope is like replacing jj its NOT working out k.
GET IT GOT IT GOOD.
JJ IS AWESOME
I AM SO TIRED OF CBS WITH THIS.CRIMINAL MINDS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHOWS.IT'S GOING TO GO DOWN THE TOILET LIKE THE REST OF THE SHOWS.CBS QUIT ALL OF THAT F****** CUTTING.JJ WAS ONE OF THE BEST CHARACTER ON THE SHOW.NOW YOU ARE FORCING PAGET TO LEAVE.GET A LIFE CBS.BRING HER BACK???????YOU GUYS MADE A HUGE MISTAKE.GET HER BACK
I share the sentiments of all the fans. Having seen the 3rd episode without JJ's name and images felt so bad. I look forward to her fall comeback and hopefully management will realize her importance in the show.
I am still devastated that JJ was taken off the show. Why is it when there is a good thing going someone feels the need to change it? The chemistry between ALL the characters were wonderful and that chemistry made the show. Don't even get me started about Paget's character having limited shows. Is it just me but I see a trend of females being lifted from the show (bad, bad idea). Kirsten you better watch your back.
Bring her back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are all good, but they had their own thing they brought to the show. Now it is a little off. There is too much "baby Girl" for me. She don't have the front runner apperance that the other young lady A.J..
I have been watching Criminal Minds for years and still watch the show, but JJ should never have been taken off the show. You had a great group and everyone had there role. I don't know why AJ Cook was taken off the show but she should be brought back. I don't what who make this call but it was a bad one. You had something special and know when I watch the show I miss JJ giving the briefing. I hope the executives read what people have to say and bring back AJ Cook. Why is it when you have something that is working some dose something like this? If someone who can change this reads any of these posts you should bring back our girl.
this is bullshit. Criminal minds was one of my favourite shows, and it is slowly going down the toilet.
What are Criminal Minds execs doing, it seems as if they do not like any of the female characters, first EL, than AJ, and now possibly Paget?? Why are all the woman getting kicked off except for Kirsten? WE WILL MISS YOU AJ, and I share the sentiments of others and will sadly discontinue watching, what was my favorite show.
Sorry, will not use facebook
When writers of any program begin to eliminate or change the format of the show, the show begins to decline
Losing JJ is a major hit for all who watch the show. To me
the characters are much better than the plot.
Whose ideal was it to eliminate JJ. Did she do it on her own.
Do you plan to use Penelope more to fill the void (which will not
work)All the characters play their own specific role which makes
the show work well---I am so unhappy about this. lm
I miss JJ. I am a Asian female, but I loved to see JJ's beautiful eyes. I also think that JJ is/was very important in this show.
A major mistake.
I watched Criminal Minds for the team - JJ being a critical member of the team.
I keep asking myself, "What were they thinking?"
A good thing going and then messing with it.
Bring her back!!!!!!
So grateful for the reruns and the Criminal MInds team.
