I am very greatful for this show. It has given me a bridge to family members who I didn't know I had anything in common with and to strengthen the bond between us.
I hate to bring up the incredibly scary plotline idea that was the ending of season six, aka Reid and his fear of schizophrenia, but that was an incredibly strong plotline and it just dropped out of sight over the last hiatus.
Jane Lynch has a strong character as Reid's mother. I would love to see more in that field of writing.
The reason I hate to bring it up is because, truly, I don't wish to see Reid shipped off to the psych ward like his mother from a mental breakdown, or for him to self commit, or for him to completely lose it and start killing others himself or allowing killings (like the Zack Addy character on 'Bones').
But, again, it is a very strong plotline. Again, thank you for all that you do and please "smile more". I have loved seeing those smiles since 'Tales Of The City'.
Thanks TG for a wonderful interview.
Loved the show since it first came on.
People are only commenting and criticizing the Beth character because they hold your character in the highest regaurd.
Your fictional team members show and have such great respect and patriarcal feelings for you that anyone who watches the show with such devotion cannot help to but feel the same way towards your character as your team members (the fans' other favorite characters [being that this is a smorgasboard cast of incredibly gifted actors] who are playing to the audience a display of 'Chosen Family').
I myself am not really a fan of Beth. But, that is because I do not live in the mindset of your character that sees the worst kind of death and the worst kind of people who cause it.
The death of Haley strikes me as more of a blow, because I have never seen someone I loved so much as to marry and have children with taken from my life in such a horrible way. I, myself, would never be able to recover as well as Hotch.
Having Hotch find someone to care for and share his life with is important. But, again, this is an ensemble cast and the other major supporters of the 'team' need strengthening to be able to keep the show and it's national and international supporters strong.
