I first off want to say that I loved "Criminal Minds" since it first aired in Season 1. I am still a fan in its 10th season. I have a few concerns about the show and characters: Please don't get me wrong, I love Jennifer Love Hewitt (JLH). I think she is a beautiful, brilliant actress: I LOVED her in Ghost Whisperers, The Client List and many of her movies (especially Heartbreakers). But I am posting this and hoping it gets read by the directors, writers & producers of Criminal Minds when I say that JLH is a beautiful actress, but in my personal opinion she is NO FBI Profiler. JLH was perfect as a Ghost Whisperers, but I honestly have to say (AS A CRIMINAL MINDS LOYAL FAN FOR 10 Seasons) that JLH does not fit in with the rest of the cast. Honestly, if anyone who is part of the show's creative talent, casting, etc. "PLEASE" reconsider who should fill Emily Prentiss' shoes, because since Season 10 began I feel as I watch each week I found myself not interested when they show JLH in ANY scene. Again, I have LOVED "Criminal Minds" since the VERY first episode. I even watch the daily reruns on "ION" & "AE" channel whenever possible, but to me having JLH now on the show is not interesting. PLEASE WRITERS, DIRECTORS, CASTING, PRODUCERS (or whomever does the hiring) I advise you to make a change in the person who has replaced Emily-PLEASE. I LOVE all the remaining characters so very much. I did feel kind of sad when the episode aired with Gideon being killed (That to me closed the door on ANY possibility of Jason Gideon (MP) ever returning) It also sadden me that during the entire episode it did not show the real (MP) not once, not even in a show with all the original cast. It only showed him as a younger agent. I felt that episode was not at its full potential. As a LOYAL FAN, and I will DEF remain a LOYAL FAN no matter what the future holds: Please consider replacing JLH. I do LIKE HER, but as I stated she is NO FBI PROFILER (and to me does not fit in with this GREAT CAST). Years back I was very sad & disappointed during a season when not only JJ left the show (AJ COOK) But also when Emily (Paget Brewster) was killed off. I am glad that JJ returned and I love her husband Will. I am also glad when Emily came back and the door to her possibly making appearances is still open (But not ever for Jason Gideon). I love when they reached out to Emily on an episode at her job in London.
May I please make a suggestion: For Season 11 maybe if "Elle" returned. Lola Glaudini was great when shed played Elle. She was an original cast member, I loved her 100%. Especially since "Criminal Minds" left the "door open" for her character. Even though Elle (Lola Glaudini) left the BAU on bad terms with the team (at least her character was not killed off. PLEASE consider Lola Glaudini possibly bringing the character "Elle" back. I feel that would increase the show's viewers and make the team whole again. I love the entire cast, but having Elle return and being back to "Elle" would make the team whole again. Again I do like JLH, but honestly she is not a good fit for Criminal Minds. I thank you for your time and I DO HOPE someone would consider this.

I think MGG is just wonderful. I love him both as a person and as an actor - he's got lines that go a million miles a minute, on the show, and he never falters! (save for in the bloopers, that is)
I do also like Hotch; although when I first started the show, I thought he was pretty monotone. Stay with it though, and you quickly realize he's only like that because that's what the job requires...and doing it for so long has simply molded him that way. Hotch has had to deal with a TON over the years, but he remains committed to his team, and a good dad; at the same time. Plus, it never hurts that when he smiles, you feel like you've won something! The man very rarely smiles, but I'm always so happy when he does.

And of course, Paget Brewster remains one of my very favorite "extended guest arc" characters; as Emily Prentiss! I think she was one of the best additions to the show - and ever since she left, it's not been the same. I didn't care for Agent Blake at all; and while JLH isn't completely horrible, she's still not a perfect fit. I do care about her more than I ever did Blake, but I hear she's quit, too; and won't be back in the event of Season 11. No surprise there, I guess.
