I think this show is exciting and encaptivating for the audience. People would complain if after episode 3 the whole truth came out.
The fact that Emerson will just suddenly appear and take out the killer is a mystery too and it makes the show very addictive...
Last week they showed lucy back in alcatraz, this week, they showed the alcatraz doctor in present day.... slowly but surely these characters are being added to the show, and with each one the mystery delves deeper. I do hope we learn some of the mystery soon. But not too much as i would love this to go on for several seasons.
Totally agree about the "creepy" killer. He wasn't. Here's an idea. You want the kid away from the creep, choke him out as he is leaving, or kick him in the balls, or sit on him! Do anything before the cop chick zooms up in her friggen fast back '68 Mustang only to toss her gun 45 yards away.
These writers define characters by one word. So the "detective," in keeping with lame TV show depictions of such, must drive a suped up '68 FB Mustang, must carry a hideout pistol, and must be a hard drinking bar rat with an uncle who just happens to own a bar. Damn can these guy once just assume the audience isn't as dumb as a fucking post?
I cannot see this show lasting long. The story itself is not believable and there is no excitement factor to have you wanting more. The audience is suppose to believe that the most dangerous criminals to ever house Alcatraz have returned and only two individuals - one an inexperienced policewoman and an academic - are assigned to catch them.
Couldn't get past the morbidly obese actor struggling to breath while delivering his "watching the actor, acting" lines. Terrible actor, and an even worse choice to cast him in a lead for a prime time drama. Perhaps as a secondary or tertiary character but as a serious lead? Forget it. There is no way he will be able to carry this show. The female lead came across as delicate and inexperienced, both as an actor and in her portrayl as a detective. Hard to watch characters that aren't believable. Most likely will not tune in again.
First of all "Criminal Minds" is NOT an ordinary show. Second I totally disagree with the reviewer if all the episodes are remakes of "Lost" then I ain't watching! I am so tired of the series that leads you on to NEVER tell you the secret. Okay let's see if a serial killer has a gun to an eleven year old child you are going to back him down??????? I hope the cop who comes across my child does exactly the same thing. Did no one see the second gun she had and PULLED to fire at Kit Nelson?
Love this show...especially Jorge Garcia!! throwback for me on LOST! and this is only been the second show, why all the negativity..it almost seems like everyone wants those 3 minute replays and that's it...relax, it's TV!
Had to give this one a 3. For sheer creep out it was great. For propelling the story not so much except for the fact that we glimpse Diego's past issue but no real explanation and WHT with the Alcatraz doc?
The scene where they let the killer go was ridiculous. No cop would do let him walk away with the kid. Also have to disagree with the reviewer. The kid killer was only creepy in a bad tv show kinda way. There was no originality to him, no real threat.
The writers and producers are either lazy or bad (Typical for JJ and Spielberg shows these days). Emerson suddenly appearing and killing the creep was such a let down that stole a potentially great character moment for the cop.
This show just seems to be a rather lazy procedural with a little obfuscation thrown in by Emerson to convince us there is some deeper mystery. Whatever that mystery is - aliens, govt experiment, whatever - it's not compelling enough to keep me interested, or watching.
100% agree, that has to be the stupidest thing i have seen in a long time.
Hes a serial killer who ALWAYS kills his victims, yet she thought it would be safer to let him walk away than to hold her ground? Sigh..
The show lost me on that scene where the girl-cop dropped her gun and let a serial killer go. That's just dumb. She knew the guy always kills his victims, so why let hime go when she has him under her gun? Realistically, the boy would have a better chance if she held her ground and kept her gun on him.
