I can name one: Criminal Minds, seasons 1 to 5. Brilliant!
I don't care if Reid gets shot because it's only a TV show, (it doesn't really hurt), though I will admit that I still find it hard to watch reruns of the episode "100", in which Foyet kills Haley, but that particular episode is a masterpiece.
@Art i feel like you don't get tv shows. please name one successful show ever on tv that had no character development. they need character development because otherwise we don't care about the characters. who cares if reid gets shot if we know nothing about him? the audience needs to connect emotionally or nobody would care
One of the best shows of the season. And you're right....Morgan needs a story and actually, Hotch could use one too. God I love this show.
It felt Rush and there was no Golry I wish it was more like proof from early in the season
Not the best episode but love this show
For those of you who want love stories between Morgan and Garcia, or others, I recommend "Desperate Hosewives", "Bones" or some other silly show like that. Criminal Minds is, well, you guessed it, about the minds of criminals, and the show stayed loyal to that concept for the first 5 seasons.
All this fluff originated when the greedy CBS executives decided they wanted bigger profits and threw the show off track in season 6, first by firing JJ and then Prentiss. That failed, but they are still focusing on profits by trying to attract a more ignorant audience.
I agree with the above post of feeling like the show is getting a little to gory. I will continue watching of course since I love the show, just could do without some of the gory stuff. I would like to see Morgan and Garcia get together. I think that would be great. But what about Reid? I would like to see a show of him developing a relationship. I really like him and would love for his character to have some sort of an interest in a relationship.
I like it, not the best episode this seasons but then they all can't be. I don't mind know who the UnSub is at the start of an episode like this were the plot is more personal. And although I love Reid I still thought is was a good episode despite his minimal part, however I unlike some people including some of the reviews don't judge the quality of the show just on how much screen time Reid gets.
As far as the comments about the BAU not being invited in, it wasn't problem for this case sense the Police never opened a case. As person can't be declared missing until 48 have passed and based on the way Garcia's convo with the cop went they didn't even really believe she had been abducted. Hence the FBI opened the case and didn't need to be "invited" into an already existing case.
And this direct more at the reviewer, you comment about how you thought the Criminal Minds faithful felt threw me off a little. Are you say that you aren't a faithful watcher, if so then I have to won
I too love Garcia and as much as I love all the characters, I would say that she is my favorite....but...How is she qualified to run a support group? Just because she has an incident in her past...that qualifies her to be IN a support group, but leading it? I would imagine in this day and age when people jump at the chance to sue anyone they think they can get money out of, that whomever(?) owns the building would be really careful who they allowed to be in charge of a group like that. From what I've learned from the past seasons, Garcia was an underground computer hacker, who was caught by the FBI and then trained to work for them. In one show she talked about how she did some volunteer work with families that had been though traumas, like the ones she sees everyday, but I never heard anything about her getting any kind of training in a counseling type of situation.
I also agree with farcia2010...I think the last year or two have slipped away from the profiling aspect of the sho
without "character development" what would be the point of the show also Im sorry but It suck the whole thing suck first it went way too fast is it just me or are the epsoide getting shorter and shorter.
Also since Gracia was a fbi empoylee they did not need to be invited
Exactly! The BAU was not invited by any law enforcement agency. So, what is this? The FBI or the Corleone Family helping a friend? :-)
If Monica actually shot the unsub she shouldn't have been free to for memorial ceremony where she released the butterflies. To me, this means that the writer didn't know how to properly conclude the story.
As Barbara said, Morgan and Garcia together would be a wonderful thing!!
Did you notice that when Garcia found the suspect car, she only called Morgan?
Did you see how he only came?
I missed the very beginning, but I think the BAU became involved without an invite from the cops strictly because of Garcia. Monica was her friend. I think Monica did shoot the unsub because yes they did show her again with Garcia releasing the butterflies, but then they showed Garcia at another support group meeting looking at an empty chair like Monica should've been there I took it as she was in jail.
Best episode so far this season! I am very pleased that they left out the so called "character development" junk and I hope it stays out for good. But who on Earth invited the BAU to get involved in the case? Why were all the cops at the BAU office instead of the BAU at a police station?
I also wonder, did Monica shoot in the air or did she actually shot the unsub? If so, why wasn't she arrested?
Newbie writers are getting better, but they still have some way to go to reach the quality of seasons 1 to 5.
I thought this episode was pretty sad, i for one was hoping the daughter was alive, although I did kind of suspect she wasn't as soon as Reid said it was written by the UnSub. Knowing who the unsub is doesn't really bother me, it just means there's a twist someone else.
i liked that prentiss got a little bit of profiler action, but i still think she's been pushed in the back a little. i get how they want to show what a master profiler j.j is, but i just wish prentiss would get more storyline.
but for the love of god, can they PLEASE explain reid's headaches?!
I meant Heather
I liked it it wasn't the best episode but it was good I don't like the girl on Army Wives but she was ok in here. I felt bad for Heather and I loved how Prentiss and JJ confronted Haether I agree farsia2010 it may hev been better with a diffrent actress.
Am I the only one who want Morgan and Garcia together???
I love Morgan...
I love Garcia...
I love them...
i am one of those people who demanded more profiling but i want the profilers to have personal stories too. i don't think it will hurt the profiling. i think what is hurting the profiling is that they show the UnSub too much all throughout the ep, remember how it was in the first seasons? they didn't show the UnSub practically until the very end and we got to sit and profile with the BAU group and try to figure it out with them while being kept in the dark about the killer. that was what i liked the most, it was way less dark and gory and more analytical. so if they could just give less onscreen time to the UnSub and more time for profiling and their personal lives, i believe it would be perfect.
on the whole though, the ep was good, but for some reason i didn't find it as emotional as they clearly intended it to be. i don't know why, maybe the actress who played Monica should have been different, i have seen her in Army Wives and she didn't impress me there either. she does everyth
