Criminal Minds > Criminal Minds Review: Farewell, J.J. > Comments Page 4
I have loved this show from the beginning. So much so that I still watch repeats over and over. I had no idea the powers that be wanted her gone. For what reason? I agree with everyone who has said that this show was about a real family. It is not just another "cop" show. These characters really love each other. Are you sure the ratings are going down and not up? This was a huge mistake. I am still in shock. Whatever the reason the producers or whoever had, they sunk this ship altogether now. How sad because the show is now done. And all the other terrific actors will suffer as well. Huge Mistake.
I don't want any other actor or actress to fill the hole JJ left.
Bring JJ back.
I was very shocked last night that JJ left. Until i read these comments i wasn't sure if it was voluntary or not. Obviously not. one of the things i don't get is if the ratings were going down, how did mgmt get to the conclusion that JJ was the problem? I do think it was a very bad decision. If it was because mgmt didn't think she was a good enough actor that might be because she wasn't given good parts. i like her!! and she is cute, kinda shy and yet holds her ground. what is they're problem!! I hope it effects the show enough to bring her back. on another note the show does need to get back to it's grass roots which is behavioral analysis. that's what drew me to the show. i don't think you need so much gore just to try and keep up with the "CSI" type shows. Get it together!!
Side note: Did anyone notice that it was the cast of Joan of Arcadia...
Joe Mantegna (dad on Joan) and the two boys on this episode were the boyfriend and brother of joan...
The show will not be the same with A J Cook. We will not continue to watch this otherwise excellent program, if they don't keep her!
Granted losing AJ Cook will not be easy, and like many of you, I think the show will lose a lot of its heart, but the remaining cast members are still worth watching. I love this show and will continue to watch, because to discontinue viewing does a disservice to the remainder of the cast who are all talented actors in their own right. Hopefully the producers will see the error of their ways and bring AJ Cook back, but even if they don't, I will still watch what I consider to be one of the most intelligent, smartly written and well acted shows on television.
I am not by any means, happy that JJ has been let go.. but I must say that her exit quote at the end reduced me to tears. I felt for her so deeply.... I still love this show and I hope to see JJ back with the team soon. ♥
Like most of you: I'm done with Criminal Minds until the producers come back to their senses!!!
Cutting A.J Cook from the cast is the worst decision EVER!!! this cast is a real family...I don't understand them!!! Why bringing in new members?? We love our team!! Why change it??!!!
I'm thankful for my years spent with this family, for everything we shared, every chance we had to grow. I'll take the best of them with me and lead by their example wherever I go. A friend told me to be honest with you, so here it goes. This isn't what I want, but I'll take the high road. Maybe it's because I look at everything as a lesson, or because I don't want to walk around angry, or maybe it's because I finally understand. There are things we don't want to happen, but have to accept. Things we don't want to know, but have to learn. And people we can't live without, but have to let go.
I watched last night and believe there was a message in the show that AJ didn't want to leave and apparently the rest of the cast weren't happy about it either. Except for David Rossi, not sure he really cared.
guess I'm going to fill that slot now with Law & Order SVU
unless they come to there senses
This is ridiculous, getting rid of J.J. are they nuts? I have watched Criminal Minds since the beginning and it is one of favorite shows, and J.J. is the gel that binds the group together!
What a travesty, I really hope they bring her back!
DOES ANYONE HAVE THE FULL QUOTE FROM LAST NIGHT's episode, that JJ said as the show was ending? The quote about things we must learn to accept? If you have it, please send it to me!
Only network execs would be dumb enough to change the chemistry of a show that is very well done. Sorry to say but if you don't bring back JJ you are going to lose a lot of your audience. If last night is an indication of new story lines-------you are in trouble. One of the very few episodes that I thought was boring.
No wonder why you guys lose market share--------you continuously making bad decisions. If you guys want to be competitive with the cable stations you have to change your thought process. Tudaloo---------I am done with CM until she comes back.
Was not impressed by last night episode it was a big mistake to let JJ go. That show is about the familly the characters have created and no it`s gone
Its hard to believe that j.j. is gone just like stella from csi new yourk we had no warning just the the bau was losing a member it will b so hard to replace her good luck j.j.
leave well enuff alone with a.j and prentiss. methinks a drop in ratings is in the making. I know of 6 people who will rebel and that at one address. Execs may be book smart but they sure as hell are street dumb.
I realize that the name of the game is ratings, and, the bottom line. I can't understand why you would take a well rated show, that was well received, and start tearing it up. You TV people seem determined to "change" things, that don't need changing. I'm sorry, but you sound like our "President". Hey! It's wake-up time. Maybe you should be trying to "save" your job, or I hope so. Jim
What is wrong with the powers that be, they be idiots. Perhaps they believe that women have no real place on the show, so they are cutting them all out. I have loved this show for years but now I may have to begin filling that time slot with Law & Order.
we want JJ back. She's the glue of the department.
I think this may be thebegining of the end for this show. It's been one of my favorite shows since it came on the air. I find it interesting that they are getting rid of the 2 of 3 female cahracters yet, none of the male characters are leaving. A little sexism at work.
It was difficult to get too invested in the story of JJ and Hotch fighting to keep her when you knew that she was being kicked off the show. That being said, the scene with JJ and Garcia did bring tears to my eyes.
The character grew throughout the years and did become multidimemsional and that is a testament to the talent of AJ Cook. I hope to see her on another show in the future.
Criminal Minds is one of the finest shows on TV. It's obvious that the writers
put a lot of thought into the various plots that they create every week.
I like all of the characters, but really enjoy Prentis and JJ because they
add a nice balance and they look good too! They add such a contrast
to the intensity of the other characters. I hear that they want to write
Prentis out of the script as well later is the season. This is a real double-whammy
to a great show. I hope there is some way they will reconsider and keep these
two great characters.
Add me to the list of CM fans that is very sad that JJ is leaving. Hers was the character that really humanised the team and pulled them together. Really sorry this crazy decision was made. I was equally devastated when CBS pulled moonlight a show that was rating well (not the top) but it was the first season. TPTB at CBS pulled this show that was building momentum just before all things vampire took off everywhere. Who is making these decisions at CBS? How many failed pilot shows since then have they brought on that didn't reach Moonlights numbers? I hope this does not affect a show I love but again how can it not?
What a huge mistake letting JJ go. She was such a vital part of my favorite show and added the warm emotion necessary to round out the other characters. I hope this is a temporary void and that she will return to the show soon. It will not be the same without her.
This is so sad. What a waste to see a great show break up. What is she planning on doing?
I cried - kept hoping it was a bad dream. Although I really love this show and all the characters, JJ was one of my favorites. This was definitely a bad decision!
