  • This has go t to be the worst episode ever.

    7.5
    This is the fisrt time in my life that I have fallen asleep while watching a new episode of Criminal Minds, albeit I was drifting in and out of sleep really.



    I have to say that this episode was the wors t one they've ever done, and that by a long shot. The storyline and plot were extremely gruesome, plus there was zero suspense, mystery or intrigue and the storyline was very much a been there, done that kind of scenario.



    There was just nothing fresh and nothing unique about this one. It looked promising after the first scene, but I have to write a bad review of a CM episode for the first time ever.



    This one left me severely disappointed. Get your act together, guys, and I hope this was very much a one-off.moreless
  • Not bad, but not particularly good either. I think I'm undecided.

    6.0
    This one took a hell of a long time to get going and I'm a person who gets bored very easily so I was close to switching it off. When things finally started to happen I was pleased but not thrilled. I almost wondered what it was when I saw some actual profiling. Quite amazed actually, given that it so rarely happens.



    The whole Hotch/Beth thing has me worried, but not for the usual reasons. My main problem is that the actress in question couldn't actually act if her life depended on it. I like believable acting just as much as believable plots and this actress doesn't deliver for me. Nice to see a bit of real smiling from SSA Unit Chief Hotchner though. We don't see a lot of that. I just hope that if the writers continue along this line that they don't forget that Jack exists and that he may have feelings about the matter. (Chuck Cunningham disappeared, never to be seen again, let this NOT happen to that gorgeous little boy.)



    The unsub bored me. I'm not sure WHY so much bores me from CM these days, but it does. There are some superb bits, usually courtesy of Reid, but there are many which make me cringe as well. Having said that, well done J.J. in that excellent scene.moreless
  • Bad Extras, Ok Plot

    6.0
    Where in the hell did they get these extras? Only the main cast and the unsub can act. The rest are stilted and almost awkward.
