  • Pathetic

    What a pathetic way to begin a new season. The unsub was boring, uninteresting and a joke. Given the vast number of crimes over the past decades and the FBI database fo crime, I was amazed that this is the best the writers could come up with. The new agent Blake did nothing to impress me or make me forget Agent Prentiss. I kept asking myself do we need a female version of Dr. Reed? The only good moments were those when JJ, Penelope and Morgan were on screen. I found myself waiting for time to fly so that CSI would come on. Apparently something has happened to the writing staff . Season 7 was lackluster and so far season 8 is off to a sub par start.
