mcgarrygirl78: (Hotch and Prentiss....dynamic duo)

PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THE [livejournal.com profile] bau_inbox. THANK YOU.

My show was back people. My show was back after four weeks off. So here we go......


OK, the characters from the spinoff are intriguing. I love their dusty ass set-up, it was just my kinda place. Forest Whitaker, receding hair line ex-con, fresh face girl, and hottie Brit = new team. Old team was kinda made of win too. Prentiss, even with the fringe kicking all ass. I loved the scene chasing the junkie through the streets. You know I loved the flirting (why do they all flirt with Prentiss? Except Will). I am intrigued to find out more about Prophet because he was the character I thought I was going to like the most but didnt get enough tonight. So lets talk about my show, shall we?

--compelling case. Always a win.
--splitting the teams so we see one character we love and one character we might want to get to know. Good idea.
--Hotch looks damn good in a suit. IJS.
--Strauss. "Dont be insolent". I just loved that line. I love that woman.
--Not much Garcia or Reid but I loved how Garcia thought Sam Cooper was "just a story".
--How badass do you have to be to handpick your team.
--Crazy Unsub was crazy. Making men fight to the death and then killing the fathers and daughters. I liked how the two events collided, losing his daughter to social services and then her death while he was in prison making for super mc-crazy Unsub. That dude used to play Peter on Days of Our Lives.
--The 1st thing I said to Murry when Strauss called was "I hope Hotch loves her shoes because they are about to be in his ass".
--Sending the video to the mother to let her know he means business....that's scary and sad. How come no other woman came forward to say that happened to them. Well maybe they did, since the police didnt connect the cases.....wait, but shouldnt that have immediately connected the cases? Hmm.....I'm thinking now.
--Possible jealous!Hotch fic potential on that. No subtext but it was good to see Prentiss in the spotlight being badass. And her quip at the end about his ego.....do I need to tell you how much I love that woman.

I'm giving this ep a nine out ten, good introduction to the new team and sparking my interest just enough to possibly watch the spin-off, if my attention span can handle it. I told Murry the network's best bet was to move CSI:NY and put it on after Criminal Minds so I wouldnt forget. I can at least give the pilot a chance now to see how they fly on their own.

Next week's episode preview was kinda a "whuh?" for me. I guess I can just wait and see. I'm just glad my show is back. Who's with me?


So what did you guys think? Also, *pimp alert* Part 10 of Thicker than Water is up at [livejournal.com profile] lairofthemuses. Check it out. *pimp alert* over.

Not bad....the spinoff has potential, it was just too much trying to intro new people and not enough team that we have had to wait a freakin month for new eps from

The case was ok....Hotch smiled....and yay back to h/p assigned plane seating

Well that is definitely a drawback to spinoff eps....I knew that was coming. I knew it was kinda gonna be more about the new team than the old team so I prepared myself for that.

Emily was so made of win in this episode, yes yes yes!!! And the look on her face when that guy was getting ready to shoot her and then the Brit shot him....priceless. He was all about Agent Prentiss, but she's cool like that so I can see why.

I too got fluttery about seat assignments on the jet. I wonder who got to sit next to her on the way back ; )

When Hotch smiles, the world is a happier, shinier place for all of us. True story.

Definitely need a jealous!hotch fic. I was meh-ish about the episode and new team until I saw Sir Sniper's mad skillz. That was intense.

NOOOOO! EVIL! EVIL! Do not move my NY. Wednesdays are my perfect nights CM and NY. :P I'd be afraid they'd move it to a slot that someone else in the house has claimed. :P But it would be smart to play 'em together.

I'm with you! Regular episodes again is good with me. I need more fixes. Morgan's facial hair looked good tonight. (Random much?)

YAY! I will see it soon, I hope.

Its OK to be random when Derek Morgan is the subject....its all good.

I liked the episode, I just love my show and it would have to be something drastic, like the boredom of Faceless, Nameless for me to give it a thumbs down. It would be smart to play the two shows together but at the same time you have to make sure its going to fly on its own and give it a completely different time slot to do that.

I'm just glad we get another new one next week and hopefully the week after. I am so sick of breaks. There should only be like 4 or 5 eps left, we dont need anymore breaks.

I don't know if it would be wise for CBS to risk a good thing (NY) on a hope. I don't have to tell you how many new shows just don't cut it. I don't think the ratings change would be worth it. SVU was moved for a risk and the show's ratings dropped. People can't always follow a show to a new slot. We'll see.

Yes! We need a straight fix built up for a few weeks before they end the season.

I agree....giving it its own separate day and time will let the network see if people want to watch cuz its good and not just because it follows the more popular show.

I'd like to see it hit Thursdays at 9 or 10 p.m., but that's just me. We'll see what they do. They could put it before the original, but idk that it would really be 8 p.m. appropriate.

Yeah 8 is the bad comedy hour. It'll be interested to see where it shows up.

Monday night is comedy night until CSI: M at 10. Tuesdays are SOLID with NCIS/NCIS:LA/The Good Wife. Wednesday is comedy/CM/NY. Thursday is their weakest, IMO. CSI is not getting the ratings. If they pitched it, they could move Mentalist to it's slot and put CM spin-off in Mentalist's current spot. Friday's pretty solid with Numb3rs, Ghost Whispered, and Medium. Unless they're putting it on Saturday or Sunday, I'm not sure where they'd put it. I'm overthinking now. :P Watch them do the last thing I ever expect. *grins*

Tried to get in here last night but LJ hated you. I'm sorry about that.

If last night's episode was supposed to encourage me to watch the new show, it failed miserably. I didn't like any of the new characters and it's hard to say if they have chemistry or will work as a unit of the BAU since we weren't able to see them work together. They were all paired with the original team members, which I hated. Maybe I'm just pre-disposed to not like the new show cause I'm loyal to the original but I was not at all impressed with the episode last night. It's gonna go on my list as one of the bottom three or four of the season. And seriously, if they are gonna shove Strauss in my face on TWO show a week, I'll be thinking about not watching EITHER of them. I hate that bitch with the heat of a thousand suns.

But I'm glad YOU enjoyed it. :)

I did enjoy it. But I love Criminal Minds and there isnt a lot that will make me not enjoy an episode. This one had all the ingredients of a good episode and it didnt fail me at all.

Most people are ready to hat the spinoff, hell even I am. But I watched last night because I love Criminal Minds. I didnt look at it like that was the spinoff team, just another BAU team as there are plenty of them.

It doesnt really matter....I hope next week is better for you.
