  • how stupid was this story line?

    1.0
    u don't want a promotion u don't just finally take it so ur boss can feel better about themselves and stroke their ego, u refuse it and if it's an issue u quit. Neither of which makes the boss look good. And all to write her out of the show because they "couldn't afford her" with the new show coming. some how I doubt she was that highly paid compared to the bigger names on the show. Really? did u really think we were that stupid? don't answer that. I'd also give this a negative rating but they don't allow thatmoreless

  • I must admt; I did shed a tear.:(

    This was teh culmination of five years of great performances on this great show for A.J. Cook, aka Jennifer Jareau. It was not the greatest of cases, overall, but seeing JJ caring for the family was realy sweet, particularly with the fact that eher time at the BAU was running out.



    The case in itself had some strong points. It was cetainly very different from past episodes, as there weren't multiple victims to consider, but that was also a positive characteristic about this episode.



    I did shed a tear when JJ entered that elevator and left the BAU for good. It was so sad, as she was certainly one of my facvorite team members, if not my overall favorite.



    All the best to A.J. Cook in the future, and hopefully we will see her on or screens very soon, in another awesome role!



    Can't wait for next week, but it will be without "JJ". :(moreless
  • Bring JJ back! Now! Touching episode that filled me with tears. Fairytale ending for the victim, but we need one of these once in a while

    Give this show an nomination for best acting. I havent seen good acting like these in years. Instead of giving it to Two and a half Men and all of its sex crimes and horniness, why not give it to this show?



    Very touching episode, crime committed was not that important (ultimately, no one died, and it was a bit far fetched).



    JJ was stellar in her final acting scene, very mature, considering that she was about to leave the show. Touching final scene with Garcia, when Garcia was in denial about JJ leaving the episode. I loved the part when she said she could have put a virus into her file. I loved the part about Garcia saying that they might not get to meet when schedules crop up and they lose contact with each other. But the part that I loved the most was JJ hugging Garcia and telling her that everything was going to be ok. The motherly love that we would be missing from this show.



    A fairytale ending in the end for the victim, but hey, we need these once in a while.moreless
  • Why they did this to us?

    1.0
    I don't want to say this was the worst episode ever of Criminal Minds because I remember the one that introduced the cast of a spin-off and that was worse.

    Anyway, the case was lame, boring and almost obvious (either one of the guys did it, duh, and surely it won't be the obvious one) and that the girl was still alive and able to call for help after three days in the middle of the sea was unbelievable (to say the least).

    But was pissed me most was the slow sugarcoated never-ending boring please-stop-or-I'll-blow-my-brains last fifteen minutes of JJ's departure. Go away, girl! We don't care if you are in the team or not! We want smart plots, brain and muscle action, psycho killers, not fifteen minutes of "We are gonna miss you, we are so sad" over a unbearable bland music background.



    I hope next episode gets better. My patience has a limit, you know.moreless

    • (Reid grabs a bottle of antacid from Prentiss' desk and takes one)
      Prentiss: Again with the dairy?
      Reid: I can't help it. I love dairy.

    • Prentiss: I don't think it's about the case.
      Garcia: Do you know something?
      Prentiss: Do I know something?
      Garcia: She just repeated the question. You always say that's a sign.

      Prentiss: I have no idea.

    • JJ: Jean Racine said, "A tragedy need not have blood and death; it's enough that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy."

    • JJ: I'm thankful for my years spent with this family, for everything we shared, every chance we had to grow. I'll take the best of them with me and lead by their example wherever I go. A friend told me to be honest with you, so here it goes. This isn't what I want, but I'll take the high road. Maybe it's because I look at everything as a lesson, or because I don't want to walk around angry, or maybe it's because I finally understand. There are things we don't want to happen, but have to accept. Things we don't want to know, but have to learn. And people we can't live without, but have to let go.
