I am sorry but I have been a loyal fan of Criminal Minds from the beginning. I am the first to admit that I do not feel that JLH is a good fit with the team at all, but what is the need for some of you to write with such hatred? There's a thing called a remote and if you feel compelled to write with such foul language and hatred CHANGE the CHANNEL! For goodness sake. It's embarassing as an American to read some of these posts. As with any long trending show or movie with sequels, its just a matter of time that it declines in quality and viewer interest as the writers struggle to come up with new material. That's just what happens. I will continue to watch Criminal Minds since I still find it entertaining enough to watch. Sure I have some disappointments here or there, but there is no need to write with such hatred people. Watch something else if you need to write such a lengthy posts with nasty inappropriate language. Grow Up!
I don't care if Reid will get a steady or not. At least I wish it wouldn't be ridiculous "Einstein" girl. What a lame shitty drama then. Just Reid and Matthew Grey Gubler need MORE appreciation and way more respect from CBS. I miss Reid as one genius. Not some team member who can be replacable. In Season1, Gideon introduced him that Gideon couldn't imagine how big Reid would become when he turned into his 30's. Where is the genius Reid?? Oh, I forgot. Even talented Gideon was murdered so easily in nowadays Criminal lame Minds' dillusional world. LAME.
And I always wonder why Gubler is just ignored by media, especially by PeoplesChoice and by Ellen that are mostly reflected never viewers' demands but powerful Hollywood person's intention, like CBS's willing. I wished the new spin-off would have been Reid's one. Reid's getting slowly into maddness because of Meave's death, then turning into a huge villain like Hunnibal would be awesome. Then Gideon would have get a big role again. But CBS just killed Gideon and treated Reid's loss for Meave's death like NOTHING.
I really don't wish that Einstein never-cute girl became a girlfriend of Reid. She's cute? I think you just look down on Reid and underestimate the existence of Meave for Reid.
Recent Criminal Minds is just an SOAP OPERA. Door kicking, bang, Aaab, gross phone sex by a thin gorilla and a nerdy girl. Well, I do like Garcia, LAME. It's never a crime drama!!! Some people criticize that NCIS is boring but recent Criminal Minds isn't even a crime drama. It's just a cheesiest soap opera.
Are girls getting so stupid now?
No. As I love Reid, I repect his genius character, and I love Matthew Grey Gubler, I don't wanna see Reid's love romance with a not-cute-at-all girl. I need more Reid's scenes such as he solves the case or he goes to see his mother.
I never understood why people disliked Blake. Sure, she was no better than Emily and people still missed her, but I liked Alex. I think she was kind of a mother figure, especially to Spencer. I loved their relationship, it was sweet, especially because he didn't get to see his own mom very often and she lost her son. I was sorry when she left. And damn I hate, Callahan. Liste, I like JLH, I do, but her character... dear God I hate that woman. More than Seaver actually. I think she is a waste of space in the show.
But the thing that bugs me most is that Spencer never has a real girlfriend. I'm tired of that. He deserves some love. And I would love to see him trying to be a BF. All the others have pairs, or lovers, or relationships, except for Reid, who happens to be the most attractive person in that team. So that's just BS to me. Get him a girlfriend. For the love of God! I like that girl Dylan Einstein for him, I mean, she's cute and smart. Also, her name? Great.
LuvCriminalMinds, I agree with your entire (very long may I add) blog. But you hit it right on the nail with everything you said. I too agree that Jennifer Hewitt does NOT belong on CriminalMInds as a BAU/FBI Profiler. I use to love watching Ghost Whispers, and I now notice that the ION network has been running all The Ghost Whispers reruns - I guess that is trying to persuade us viewers to accept her on CriminalMInds. But I DEFINITLEY DO NOT! YES REPLACE HER. I also use to love "Elle" from Seasons 1 and 2. I have all the seasons on DVD, and its sad how they are making these bad choices with this character :(
Love "Criminal Minds" since Season 1. I am still a fan now 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 atalented actress: I loved her in The Ghost Whisperers, The Client List and many 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 & talented actress, but in MY PERSONAL OPINION: She is NO FBI Profiler. JLH was great asThe Ghost Whisperer, but I have to say (AS A LOYAL "Criminal Minds" 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, writing, directing "PLEASE" reconsider who should fill Emily Prentiss' shoes, because since Season 10 began I feel as I watch each week I find myself not interested when they show JLH in ANY scene. I liked Alex Blake (JT),when she join the cast for just (2) Seasons (she seem to fit in okay) but did not remain on the show since Season 9 ended. 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, PRODUCERSI advise you to make a change. 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 (AJ COOK) left the show, but also when Emily (Paget Brewster) was killed off. I was so glad 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. I loved when they reached out to Emily for help on a caseat her job in London.
May I please make a smart suggestion: For Season 11 maybe if "Elle" returned: Lola Glaudini was great when she played Elle. She was an original cast member, I loved hercharacter, personality & attitude as "Elle Greenway" - Bringing her back would bevery interesting, 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 in regards to when she was attacked andrefused to seek theproper evaluation she needed(at least her character was not killed off) PLEASE consider Lola Glaudini possibly returning. I feel that would increase the show's viewers and make the team whole again. I thank you for your time and I DO HOPE someone besides us loyal fans reads this. Hopefully the writers of "Criminal Minds" #1
Loved the show, Love Garcia, JJ and the rest of the cast.
Now seeing jennifer hewitt makes me feel sick and she can't be taken seriously with her past performances.
Absolutely hate jennifer hewitt terrible actress and person, only thing she adds is as set of fake tatas and arrogance and that's it. Anyone would be a better pick all I can say is jennifer needs to die
Seriously? jennifer ""love"" hewitt on Criminal Minds? Oh, how I used to love this show!.
Adding hewitt to the cast is a terrible decision; the producers could have hired any other actress, and they would have be a better than her. Please fire her it will be brutal to watch as she takes down the show.
I'm no Reid fan, but just an old fan who don't watch this regularly after S7 but it's nothing to do with Brewster's left just I prefer Gideon. So sometimes I check it and its fandom.
And I felt like I saw almost no Reid in Season9 and 10. Just count how many minuites he has been in every ep then his total screentime would turn out be waay less than other characters.
But some girls in fandome keep saying "the show is all about Reid!! Others need more time!" YOU SERIOUS? Or JUST YOU ARE PLAIN STUPID???
And as already someone said before, Hotch is no longer a leader looks like actually Morgan the Ab.
And all the official pages of CBS or Criminal Minds are ONLY ADVERTISING Shemar Moore and AJCook. as already told.
Merry Christmas pic from Criminal Minds official was only Shemar and there absolutely no other cast.
I do know the number of Matt Gubler fans is bigger than him, and the show can't be the same without Thomas Gibson who is so famous as Shemar Moore, still CBS always treat this only ab guy like an only celebrity in the programme.
But, strangely, no self-claiming Criminal Minds fan complain about Shemar Moore and JJ centric.
You know if Reid's screentime is so little still you feel he is outstanding, well then the ACTOR'S ACTING may be OUTSTANDING.
And whatever Shemar fans try to believe, the Reid's actor may be way CUTER and more ATTRACTIVE to MORE VIEWERS.
So WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT???
But Criminal Minds fans always love to bash Reid.
Normally, if there is one outstanding character or actor or whatever, fans support him or her and of course so do media UNTILL the number of fans is so huge that fandome can make the show or some cast win some famous voting award.
Yes, I know all the awards are somehow rigged, but Criminal Minds hasn't reached the level to be OK to criticize it.
Most of us don't care about this show AT ALL.
I mean, look at Empire! People are now all talking about it! Look at Person of Interests! It can't win like teen awards, but ratings are great and Emmy cared about it. NCIS? Well, it's the king. The ratings are the justice, you know? Supernatural, once glee, Vampire Diary, Arrow, Walking Dead? Ratings may not be as high as CM but the YOUNG love THEM.
But WHAT IS Criminal Minds?
"I love the show, because I'm learning profiling!! And wanna know their real life!! Not character!"
Their real life? Are you serious??? I mean ARE you SERIOUS???????
Please don't be a profiler. You are too stupid to be it. I MEAN IT.
This show has NO POINT.
It trys to avoid making one strong main character, that's why storyline also blurred and once there comes such characters as Gideon and Reid, STUPID MINORITY TASTE's fans COMPLAIN ABOUT it.
But they don't care about those truly attractive characters and actors, so if the screentime of the character or the actor is almost ZERO, they don't care.
The show is lame, so are fans. And these idiots' envies or stupidness are killing the show.
Get rid of Gideon and Reid, or those actors? Awwww, NICE!
Then, how can normal people who are just randome and never blind cult admirers of the show like them be dragged to the show?
As everyone tells, it's no fault of JLH.
YOU STUPIDEST FANS' FAULTs to KILL the show.
And if you people so keen on bashing Reid, just make a spinoff of him. You must be happy to get rid of him and make more time for other character, and viewers will be happy too to focus on one interesting character who is a genius and makes viewers expect to see something decent detective drama, no blurred storyline like CM.
And call back Hotch to the scene. He is a boss, not Morgan!
Rossi? Sorry, I prefer Gideon.
But CBS killed him easily.
I'm really glad that Mandy and Paget left the show years ago.
They were right and even I feel their choice proved they are real top actors who can't keep on being in just a crappy show and try another dramas. If you don't belive in you, you can't act like that, and professionals always trust themselves and never surrender in others.
I almost forgot to say this.
Shemar Moore fans are always reporting Matthew Gubler's FB page or tweets that praise Matthew Gubler over Shemar Moore as spam or sexual pics and illegal pages.
That's also the reason Matthew Gubler's FB page doesn't come up in the affiliates and advertisement section so much.
Or strangely sharp reduction of his followers on Instagram.
Seriously, the number of foced to unfollow accts is 8k!!! In a day!
If Shemar Moore leaves the show, I will be happily back to watch this show.
What's a big deal of this guy?
I was just watching Ellen and this ugly guy turned up, showing off his abs.
CBS had better consider why this only-ab guy or Morgan can't be so popular even as Reid or Gubler, or Hotch or Gibson may be?
I once started watchingthis show for Gibson -as a fan of Darma and Greg- and then Gubler. And Gideon at the time.
Please don't excuse that Morgan doesn't have enough story-line or the character is not so attractive as Reid.
There has been already plenty of Morgan's storyline and HELLO? Shemar is only guy whom girls are let to admire as hot by CBS and its slavery media. It's all owing to Morgan's character, isn't it?
Still Morgan is NEVER EVER as popular as Reid who has been disgraced just as nerd or not hot for its character when actually Gubler is the one real top model meaning never unattractive.
And some votes for hot guys showed that Thomas is hotter than Shemar. Well the votes were based on fandome, so fans might just feel sorry for Thomas who has been ignored as well as Gubler, but it was like tripple scored.
I happily live without watching "praising Ab" lame show now.
It was just a tourture for me to look through getting-boring show to have just a glance of Reid and Hotch.
Or on peopleschoice, for Gubler or whole other casts.
Why not Gubler? He is actually more popular among especially teenagers than ab. And he is the one who never fails to be on top and is the key of the show anyway.
And why not Kirsten or Gibson? Especially in this year. They were nominated by rigged PCA this year. But when Shemar decided not to come to PCA, they weren't invited either.
So I stopped watching after S8.
CBS murdered Meave and stole Reid's chance of becoming a genius hero to save girls.
Yea,yea, I know for ugly Shemar stan, CBS, it's inconvenient for Reid or Gubler to be a hero, which means Shemar or Morgan can't be an only hero there.
Shemar Moore isn't the show, actually he is NOTHING compared to Matthew Gray Gubler. Or Thomas Gibson.
Show was set in Indianapolis but it was obvious that the writers did little research about the city. There is no "Main Street" as one of the major streets, the building facades did not look anything like downtown Indianapolis, and the city hall is a 1962 building not like the facade shown in the last scenes. Also, the cops are IMPD, not Indianapolis Police Department. Indianapolis is east of the Mississippi so all TV stations start with the letter W not K. Did you see the mountain in one scene? Indy has no mountains.
Last night show was really weak - very surprised as I'm a die hard fan. That being said, you guys really miscast with JLH - come on, she's like "smell the fart acting", always has been. You need an actor with depth - not fluff.
The other cast members are normally awesome, last night just not a good show (that was writing).
Season 8, JJ gets kidnap and tortured and then rescued and then handcuffs are taken off and she is able to run after the killer!!!! Jesus Christ can a actor get worse at acting and whoever the writers are please find another job. Mandy Patinkin was so right to leave this series!
This my favorite show and is being Ruined by having JLH in it! This show is/was great with the cast that made it successful and popular! If not broke, why change it! Love the cast. -as is! Not with phoney, over-rated, washed up, has been actors like -Jennifer Love Hewitt, trying to regurgitate her crappy acting career and Scabbing onto other peoples success And an already good show. Don't need or want her on Crim Minds -and Ruining it! Will have to switch to another show if JLH stays and ruins Criminal Minds! Get rid of JLH! Leave the cast as is, if need New cast get New, fresh faces, new blood actors who can earn their place, and acting reputation on show. -NOT JLH! SHE SUCKS! Many thumbs down, with her on it! Rating: 0. ***DEFINITELY RUINING THE SHOW. GET RID OF JLH! They Have dumbed down the script and by having this crappy low budget phoney, & RUINING THE show -as expected! She SUCKS & does Not suit or belong on this show, AND YES, NEEDS TO GO BACK TO TALKING TO GHOSTS! Get rid of JLH AND KILL OFF HER CHARACTER ASAP, THIS WILL NOT IMPACT THE SHOW AT ALL! NO LOSS! Rating: -10 with JLH on it! GET JLH OFF CRIMINAL MINDS!
I like a team job not a character job. A good balance between characters, and i really miss the chemistry the characters used to have. They always got involved into one and others they looked like a familly. No need a new profiler but better scripts, and creepy stories ; If any i miss Strauss or similar agent . And a miss Reid and garcia's brillant minds.. Never loved JJ character, but she is part of the team and i accept was sweet, now as a profiler she is boring, arrogant, distant. cold. Hotch doesn't look the chief lately. Garcia used to be perky, funny, smart, she didn't like to see horror pics. but she could handle pretty well, she always care about the others, got involved and investigated side by side with the profilers, now she is just a "fast looking info machine" what a waste of a character who was an ex hacker, and a expert IT. And they all talk so od dissapoint lately. Loved the episodes where one of the team has a probleam and the entire team helped him. This show now looks more like a episode focus character with somebody of the team helping, and the others?? do they care? i doesn't looks like.
Ben a fan since the beginning. Never missed an episode. After JLH joining the cast I actually stopped watching after 2 of the new episodes. I decided to go back to it because I do think the rest of the cast & writers are have nothing against her at all, however she sticks out like a sore thumb. Her acting skills are not up to the standard of the other actors. I wish her the best of luck, just please write her out of this series.
some excellent plots but what does my head in is Garcia who has access to every single computer system in the world and security camera footage in every store.
Ruin's it really, she talks and types at the same time at the speed of light, sometimes not even looking at the computer. Most hilarious episode ever was when Prentis "died", she had to find a building somewhere in the entire city that could house an arsenal, it took 2 seconds flat - couldn't stop laughing.
Still watch it though as some really good story lines, just wish Garcia wasn't so fake!
Whomever is in charge of haircuts and color on Criminal Minds NEEDS to be fired.... AJ's long hair looks like a high school bimbo. JLH's hair,,, whats with the stringy long strands? Spincers hair looks like he put his finger in a light socket. Penelope's haircolor,,,, and CUT... looked best when she was light Blonde, NOT RED..... Not the red blonde with roots she has now, and her haircut..... does not flatter her AT ALL...
I just can't believe these comments about Jennifer Love Hewitt. She is such a amazing person. She is a good actress and very talented. She is singer, actress, director, producer. At least just respect her career and experience. She is in this bussiness for a very long time. It is not easy to join to a serie that aires for 10 season! Everyone know each other. If you never watch her just watch a movie or show of her. She is so nice person to everyone. The show is wonderful nothing has changed. She is really great fit in this character. Just don't blame her and don't be disappointed. If the producers of Criminal Minds didn't love or believe her, they wouldn't ask her if she want to be in the show. So just trust her for a second and watch the show. You'll see it. You don't have to love her but at least try to understand her and respect her. As a fan of JLH, I really loved her in this character, she is doing her best.
As much as I like Jennifer Love Hewitt and most of her movies and shows, on the contrary, I don't find Hewitt's acting as a behavioral analysis believable. I like Lola Glaudini and I miss her and Mandy Patinkin. I'm most disappointed that Glaudini was replaced by Hewitt.
