Criminal Minds > Criminal Minds Review: All In The (Dysfunctional) Family > Comments Page 2
@Michael, omg, children and family should always come first. You can always get another job or work out a roster that fits your family, not the other way around. I hate to be your family, they seem to be dispensable to you. If you're family can't hack your work schedules they can just leave and you'll find a new one. WOW! And Jack is only around 6/7 years old. How many first graders are you aware of that are self-reliant?
@Jess, I agree with everything you said. This was sexiest episode. Hotch and JJ are in the same boat especially this week with Will away. But I guess its okay and easy for Hotch to go gallavanting about because he's got his ex sister-in-law as a built-in babysitter.
I had a bad feeling when I heard "Is Hotch dating"? Who cares? Some personal stuff is Ok but when a great crime drama turns to a relationship soap opera I lose interest. Many years ago kids, NYPD went the same way and pretty soon we had to watch a grimy detective getting his crack lovingly soaped in the shower by a woman WAY too good looking for him, instead of solving crimes, the thing we loved him for. Behavior analyze THAT!
Sound like you guys are being sexist not the show why is it that a man have to suck at everything we are good at things and woman i know they think their more perfect then God but their not.
Sorry you’re right three years between the kids Henry and Jack makes a world of difference such a big age gap. Jack was born in season one and Henry in season four.
Leaving a child at the age of six by himself is certainly great parenting on Hotch part. Jack should definitely be self-sufficient by now, I think he ready to leave home and stop being a burden on Hotch so he can go live his life the way he wants to. This show is definitely sexist as they make JJ to be a stupid airhead who can’t managed just because Will gone away for a week that she can’t even mange to organise a babysitter to spend time with her BFF Garcia whilst you have Hotch who teaching his child to self manage and is perceived to be a great role model to his son. How come we never see Hotch struggling to find a babysitter or for that fact even a therapist to help his child come to term will losing his mum and cope with bereavement?
I have a question as to why criminal minds keeps forcing the Beth character down our throats. Morgan had a girlfriend Tamara who lasted about five seconds so why is everyone making a big deal out of Beth. Is it because Hotch is a unsub and enjoys killing, these writers are always making out that anything can set off an unsub the simplest of stress and Haley leaving Hotch serious pissed him off and next minute you know she dead and now all good in the world again. It not like the writers haven't used that as a stressor or maybe Jack going to be the next unsub as the writers have used that storyline last season when a boy dad remarried and he became resentful. So who the unsub Hotch or Jack
I wish people would stop trying to match make on this show, it's a crime drama not 90210. If you want to watch people hooking up together watch a different show. Maybe Tv fanatic needs a shake up with its writers as all this one ever does is talk about who should be sleeping with who and it's getting boring. Either review the crime or don't write anything.
The whole team being a family is stupid if they are that close why didn't Rossi, Hotch, Morgan, Emily or Reid just babysit JJ stupid child in the first place and not make such a big deal out of it, who cared if gracia and jj didn't get to go out.
No children come first not work especially if they experienced a dramatic and tragic loss of hearing their mother get shot. This show constantly has JJ running around trying to mange both home and work yet these pathetic excuses of a man Hotch walks around with his head in the clouds doing as he pleases.
So Haley sister drops everything at Hotch demands, I need to go to work please babysit, I need to do a marathon and train please babysit, I need to go on a date please babysit. So when does he spend time with his son and when did Rossi become his babysitter.
Sexist episode????? REALLY!?!!? Whare are you people getting that from? Come on, this show isn't about an FBI agent raising his son!! It's about him solving cases! It's nice to get snipets of Hotch's home life but every episode doesn't need to address the issue of how he raises his son! And by the way, I have no doubt Hotch takes very good care of his son! OK I need to shut up now .......I'm making this sound real!
Now, this was a good episode. Was a bit surprised at the early reveal of the unsub again this week.
I do agree with others that Reid (and Morgan too) needs a social life. I got a laugh out of the girls at the end and their hangovers!
Interested in seeing how Hotch and his lady friend goes.........
How did Hotch do that Jack what 10 Im sure he can take care of himself
Okay...after last night's episode I have to say that I won't be watching the show anymore. I've had enough. The long torture porn scenes in seasons 6 and 7 has ruined the show and even my love of the characters can't keep me watching. I'm done.
Reading all the above comments I see a similarity in a need for Reed to have a "friend". In my opinion everyone in that team needs a significant other except Hotch. He has been my hero for years and I am so upset that he has not kept his promise to Halley in regards to Jack. Jack get passed around to anyone who can baby sit. Can't blame Morgan for being upset with Hotch.....can't blame any of the team. Come on writers......get real.
(1) Yes, Hotch needs a woman in his life. He might smile more. (2) Yes, Reid needs a social life--somehow, some way--to offset his inability to communicate at a 'normal' level. (3) Yes, any number of scenes without a shirt on Morgan would be nice. Please remember--this unit of FBI (supposedly) concentrates on the worst of the worst in society and the unrelenting aberrant and revolting behavior showcased every week really needs a lighter balance SOMEWHERE.
Ack! The team wasn't on trial for their ability to find babysitters. The episode was interesting, I liked a couple of the subtle moments - when the killer Jeffrey, said he wished it was over, when mom had the gun, when he defended the visiting physical therapist as mom went even more psycho and the constant attempt to get Jeffrey to take his meds. That was dark dark humor because if anyone needed serious medication it was mom, but then we find out she is a pill popper and dad is a drunk and well, too bad they didn't leave Jeffrey with babysitters- he would have been sane perhaps if they had. I am all for Hotch to have this girlfriend, he needs some light relief like we all do in our lives.
This was a great episode. Villains too horrid to believe, though we know they are out there. Then seeing Hotch smile after all these years is a relief. He's a very good father and it easy to see how a man would find it easier to get a babysitter on short notice than a woman. Aren't we "little women" supposed to home watching the kiddies? Sexist crap!
So when are we going to see more of Reid? He's the main reason I watch the show and we see less of him each week. And he is very human, just shows it differently. Matthew does a great job of portraying his nervousness (he speaks so fast) and vulnerability. It's about time he had a love interest. Actually, I'd like him to meet up with the actress from Season 1 he had a crush on and see their interaction years later. Their attraction in that shows draws me back to it often.
Thought Kathy Baker was great as domineering psycho mom! But she's great in everything. Missed the Penelope/Morgan banter this week, but still great to see some interaction between the team not on a case.
@Debbie, They met in the park when Hotch was training for the triathlon and she offered to help. It happened in episode 10.
This ep was great, I love to see the personal lives of these characters I've seen for so many years! I love that is always obvious chemistry that has the cast in real life. I agree that it is time to give Reid a love life! I love his character and needs more than his genius and the threat of schizophrenia.
The show was good. Glad Reid was a babysitter makes him "human" I think Will has left also. Glad so see Hotch smile he needs to do that. I can't seem to figure out how he met Beth. Refress memory.
I was confused as to why the husband/father committed Suicide!? Did the wife/mom have THAT much control over him?
IMO, I think Will has already left JJ (she just isn't telling anyone), and Beth (in the beginning) nagging Hotch about maybe missing the race because of work is a premonition that she won't be able to handle his job. (seriously I would think twice about dating a guy whose first wife divorced him and was murdered b/c of his job - that he still has!!!....but if it was Hotch, I would seriously consider it!)
According to one of the CM writers, Episodes 22 & 23 we should all have tissues handy if we're JJ fans!!!
I am going to hold out hope for a JJ / Hotch "interaction"!!
@Jess that's a really weird complaint. It's not really sexist- for one thing, Jack is a LOT older than J.J's kid, so he could possibly leave him alone for a couple of hours. Also, could you project your own issues more? There wasn't a single thing sexist about this episode- it's been shown like a billion times how much hotch loves his kid. J.J also loves her kid. Why don't you focus on what's actually happening on the screen?
You do know that Haily Sister take care of Jack when Hotch is a alway on cases and doing what all fathers do beside it sound like Rossi also been taken care of Jack as well.
Beside Men are different then woman when it come to a child were more mature in how to rise them we don't treat them like they are better then God we treat them as people so of course Hotch is going to be a better parent then JJ.
Also rules number one of the working life "The Job comes first always"
Again Cm does not fail being sexist and bias. Poor JJ, Will goes away for a week and she can't even manage to get a babysitter to go out, whilst hotch on the other hand seem to have babysitters on speed dial when he training, on dates, at work or partying with his colleagues. No surprise Jack embraced Beth straight way losing his mother was no great loss but like losing a toy on the street and clearly focused dad as made it clear his job and needs come before jack. Maybe JJ should take a parenting class from Hotch as men are clearly better parents and have more value and purpose in their kids lives.
