    They had me at "Anne Dudek" ... Henry's Halloween costume ended it perfectly.
  • Scleroderma Cure????

    9.0
    I've loved this show for many years, and generally think that it is very well done. However, they should have done a little more medical research for this episode. They stated that the Unsub previously had a desease called Scleroderma that she was cured of. I was diagnosed with Scleroderma 20 years ago and live with it every day. There is no cure for it. If you go to the Scleroderma Foundation website, it will also tell you that there is no cure for Scleroderma. Do your homework!moreless
  • 8x05 - Extreme Green

    This was a great episode! Not only was I riveted by what was going on with the victims, the slow the way the show revealed the motivations of the killer was really well done! I was sucked in by her crazy. This episode did a great job in showing how a person's delusions can make them really out of touch with reality and morality. Even though there wasn't much air time devoted to the victims, the situation they were in and how they were being treated made me care so much that they survived that particular hell.



    I really enjoyed this episode! And the cuteness of the last scene was a brilliant sweet tone to end a grim episode.moreless
  • La Grande, Oregon!

    10
    I have loved Criminal Minds for quite a while and I was shocked that they had done an episode of La Grande, OR (where I currently stay). It's pretty cool it could've been nice if actual places in La Grande were shot for the episode but that's not always possible!! Still loved this episode and every other episode they have done!! :)
  • Female serial killer

    9.5
    Loving how this season we already seen second episode with female serial killer!We haven't seen that many through previous seasons.I know they are rare but this season is just getting better.Like how the new character is staying more on background. Loved the ending as well when Henry dressed up as Reed it was adorable.This season is one of the best hope they will keep making episodes as good as this!
