  • Again, I have some mixed feelings and reactions.

    9.5
    This is about my 100th attempt at posting a review for this episode - idk wh y it isn't letting me.



    Anyway, enough of that and onto the review itself - I thought this episode had some really good moments such as connecting the birthdays and deathdays on to one another and the whole reincarnation thing was interesting and pretty unique. I liked that aspect of it.



    The negative for me was that there was no profiling. They just followed the birthdays and deathdays and all of a sudden we know who the ckiller is and we know who the future victims will be. They didn't believe they needed the BAU's help for that? Surely. It seems to me that the BAU's talents would be better suited to a different case that requires some actual profiling.



    The most interesting thing about Season 8 (which has absolutely had a few disappointing episodes, some decent ones but no really amazing ones) is this copycat! I am REALLY loving this storyline an d I can't wait to see where it takes us next!



    I wonder which crime he will copy next? Something tells me it is the puppets!moreless

    for the people who give a bad rating, no one is forcing you to watch it. I even have the older episodes series linked to record .... love me some Shemar
  • Where's JJ lately?

    8.0
    Where has JJ been in this season it's been all about Alex and Rossi for some reason and you've barely seen JJ at all I miss her.
  • What Was That Weirdness From Alex?

    7.5
    Did y'all notice the very weird response Alex Blake had when Reid is talking with the medical examiner? It's right around 10.5 minutes into the show. Reid surmises that the unsub is taking the fly larvae to the crime scene. Her response is both grossed out and . . . something else. Very hard to read - any thoughts?

    all these new episodes (season 7 and 8) are all the same. they have a crime to solve and garcia as always pulls up the unsun then they catch him in perfect timing

    i wish they would do a bit more explaining on how they profile them and the clues they get to reveal the profile

    if you watch the older criminal minds they are much more clever and garcia isn't constantly finding the unsubmoreless
