Criminal Minds > Criminal Minds Review: Ex Marks the Sad Spot > Comments Page 2
The only thin I missed in this episode was a line or two about Reid identifying with the 9-year-old boy. When he was in the house, you could see that he understood the room really well. The episode was about Rossi, but I really felt that there was a missed opportunity with a single line from Reid about the little boy's situation.
I checked my local listings. The reason there was no preview is because there is no new episode next week. It's a repeat.
Ok did I miss something when did JJ come back or did she not leave?
It is nice to know that our comments are read and suggestions are taken. If my comments last week were the reason the "men of Criminal Minds" were not elaborated on, then good. I prefer reviews that have at least the semblance of maturity. Thank you.
I am a complete Hotch/Prentiss shipper too. I love Emily. Her addition to the show really improved it for me. I read somewhere that the writers/producers couldn't see Hotch getting involved with someone he worked with, so I kinda expect them to go the way of Benson/Stabler from SVU. I guess we'll see. :)
I am not gay nor a racist but it seem like people only want the show to be about Morgan because he a buff African american
I agree that Morgan needs more personal stuff. Outside of Profiler,Profiled anything that remotely came close to being "personal" somehow wasn't. He at times tends to remain a mystery as a character. I love him though. He's one of my faves.
Regarding Prentiss. As someone who never cared for her (and has been and still is indifferent in regards to her and JJ) I'll say this. I call them as I see them, and avoid being biased. It appears as if they are going out of their way to give her something to do. Almost all of her scenes since the premiere come off as forced. Which speaks to how misused she was previously with the exception of the Doyle storyline. The scene with Rossi just seemed like something kind of unnecessary, she could have been substituted in with just about any other character (mainly Hotch) but they used her because they realized they haven't been. That being said. Her concern for Rossi was genuine and true to her character. While I've often been annoyed by how she inse
@sandy you are not alone. Hotch/Prentiss FTW. Seriously though. I have been shipping them for quite awhile now. I would LOVE for them to happen. Especially since Hotch is so straight laced. It would be fun to see Emily loosen him up a bit. But not too much! Otherwise we'd miss the Hotch we know and love.
I'm only going to comment on the twist-ending for Rossi, because I think it's being treated as a throw-away and the significance of it is being completely missed: his former wife came to him to ask him to help kill her. And we the audience (not to mention Rossi) are supposed to let our sympathy for her situation excuse the taking of a human life?!
The sorrowful situation of a chronic illness that is ultimately fatal is one that should arouse our compassion. But compassion is not synonymous with taking another life. Persons who are dying need our love and understanding, not an expedited death.
Caroline will doubtless face physical hardships that would be embarrassing in a "normal" circumstance, e.g., loss of continence or inability to feed herself. What a tender opportunity for Rossi to affirm that his love for her (and her own human dignity) does not depend on what she is or isn't capable of doing! She is worthy of his love and care simply for who she is, not her capacities
okay...i love prentiss...i really love them all actually..
am i the only one who would be interested in seeing hotch and prentiss??? i've kind of been interested in that for a long time! even before haley passed and they were separated and you didn't know where that was going. they (prentiss and hotch) seemed to have an understanding, especially when she was going to leave the team because she was being pressured to betray them and refused and hotch figured that out. also, last week she was really the only one to figure out he was worried about jack. i don't know, i'm curious.
Art one of the biggest complaint about these show is that there never any character development yeah there been some but not a lot so now their giving it to us
This show is finished. The sheer quality of seasons 1 to 5 refuses to come back.
Yesterday's episode would have been OK if only they'd left out the fluff about Rossi's wife. It's like having extra commercials that you just have to wait until they are over so that you can return to the story. And look at this review! Nothing about the criminal case, and all about the irrelevant stuff.
I'm sorry to say that CM is no longer my favorite TV show, as it is becoming a soap opera.
A solid, enjoyable episode. Rossi's last scene with his ex-wife was heartbreaking. I'm a huge fan of Prentiss and I think, given what she's been through, she was the right person to tell Rossi to take the leap. Now we have to wonder what that leap will be...
I agree with evelyn - Morgan needs a personal story too. Since they're already bringing back JJ's family and Reid's mom, how about doing something with Morgan's mother and sisters?
Your post was enough to make me wonder if you've some sort of problem with friendships and relationships. I like the whole team, but I especially like Rossi and Prentiss best. Reid a very, very close second to both.
It's understandable that Prentiss would want to help Rossi if she saw anything wrong, not just because they work together and are friends, but also because she has a relationship with Rossi that was furthered when he helped her during the Benton case. They care for each other, obviously, and in the normal world, people care even when you don't want them too and yes, they will help even if they're not asked.
You see someone distressed, if you care enough, of course you react. The BAU team does that. And yes, this applies in reality too.
If you work for a foster care system, I honestly hope you do not react this way if you actually do interact with children.
I am hoping that Morgan & Garcia are going to finally get their shot at a relationship together I was hoping that this would come after her near death but alas no.. Is this going to be the beginning?? Lets hope! I want Prentis & Hotch together because I think they compliment each other Reid needs a girlfriend.... Maybe some one as sweet and geeky as him... I love this show but there needs to be some stories that include life beyond the BAU!!!!
Ok who care about which team memeber the soap opera fan want to see have sex with each other
Last night was Awsome
The story was okay. Didn't see the ALS spin coming. I love Prentiss and hope she ends up with Hotch. The reference she made about dating a golfer made me think of Hotch; although it is Thomas who is the golfer.
This episode wasn't as strong as last week's; and I too looked for the promo. Joe did a good job. But I prefer Hotch focused episodes.
I love Hotch and I doubt that his "love interest" story line will be more than one or 2 episodes. They almost never are. Only reason JJ got one was because of AJ's real life pregnancy otherwise it never would have happened. Garcia is lucky. Whatever happened to Tamara from season 5 who seemed to be good for Morgan? He needs a love interest. And as for Reid, what about Austin from season 4? Hotch does seem to be happier this season.
I used to love JJ and Prentis but I can see why people dont like Emily and I'm starting to like both of them less this season. JJ was pretty judgemental when the case was being presented with her "mother of the year" line. I thought JJ and Hotch were supposed to grow closer this season? i havent seen any of that.
HOTCH IS MINE!!!!
As one of those who loathes Prentiss, I would have (verbally) clocked her for sticking her nose in my business, had I been Rossi. Thoise people have been told to not profile each other; it is seriously rude. Still, they do it.
I think if Rossi comes up with a way to assist his ex-wife without going to prison for doing it, he will. He is the kind of man who is apt to be as kind to a human as to a pet. The kindness shown a suffering pet should never be denied to a suffering human. But the law makes that problematic, and no one would know it better than an FBI agent.
I did not particularly appreciate the change in the chatter between Garcia and Morgan. And what about Kevin? She has a perfectly good boyfriend who loves her for her mind. Those are very hard to come by. I liked Garcia the way she was; I realize people change, but this change grated on me. I don't like Morgan, and I do like Kevin, so perhaps I am prejudiced there.
I used to work in the foster care system
I have noticed that whenever people talk about personal stories for this season, nobody mentions Morgan. He needs one too.
