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

I was so excited when I found a pair of socks with no toe holes this morning. Imagine my surprise when I went to put on my shoe and my whole heel was out. How the hell did I miss that? Other highlights of the day.....

*I worked at work, only wrote fic at lunch.
*macaroni and beef for lunch....yum
: )
*therapy was really good. Discovered more things about myself, always great.
*They canceled The New Adventures of Old Christine and paying Charlie Sheen $2 million an ep to stay on Two and Half Men for 2 more seasons. WTF?
*Crazy AU characters in my head are changing the game approximately halfway through. Not fair.

OK, lets get to the show, shall we?

OK, there was a lot going on in this episode and I liked not exactly knowing what was going on but not being bored or like whuh? OK, I was like whuh a couple of times. The highlights.....

*Garcia in yellow and then pinky red and being all badass tech kitten. I love her and love her having expanded time in her Quantico lair.
*OMG, Prentiss and Morgan in black, yowza. Mmm mmm mmm.
*Hotch looked pissed the whole time. When they got to the old dude's place, I thought he was gonna have a Hotchalanche moment.
*Rossi dyed his hair and I dont like it. His grey temples are gone...what's that about? Yes, jet black hair is sexy but grey temples are too people.
*Hotch's boy band crack. Hotch has jokes? I love it.
*Who the hell leaked the facial symmetry thing? WTF, we're trying to catch a maniac people, show a little restraint.
*OMG, I knew there was a good reason to delete my Facebook page.
*This show is making you scared to do everything, help people, be online, drive home with GPS....Ed is gonna have a bunch of scared folks on his hand.
*This was the episode with the pathology without the pathology. We know what he was doing and the scientific answer behind the question but not the why. His answer to Prentiss at the end was such a cop-out. I wanted her to belt him....he seemed as if he wanted to.
*I'm starting to think Hotch wears the same ugly reddish tie in the field, or maybe he has 7 to 10 similarly ugly ones.

The episode just went off and I can hardly remember what happened, except how good they all looked. Creepy Unsub is creepy....and a grandpa, I couldnt believe it. Have we ever had any Grandpa Unsubs before. Dude, Bernero just keeps finding more ways to shake our confidence in the good things in the world like grandpas and Commander Riker.

Just one left, I dont even know what to think from the preview. If anything happens to Morgan (DO NOT GIVE ME SPOILERS!!!!) I will pitch a total bitch. I will go postal like a motherfucka. I love that man and we need him. Well, I need him, and Garcia needs him, and that's enough.

Well, that's all I got. It was kinda long but I dont think I said that much. Not as good as the last two weeks, maybe there was too much whuh to give anything my full attention, but I liked it. I almost always like my show. What did you guys think?

I thought he was gonna have a Hotchalanche moment.

Hee, I love the term Hotchalanche! That's brilliant, it describes the phenomenon so well!

Rossi dyed his hair and I dont like it. His grey temples are gone...what's that about? Yes, jet black hair is sexy but grey temples are too people.

I'm with you. Obviously dyed hair looks ugh. And I think grey temples are distinguished and sexy. *nodnod*

Hotch's boy band crack. Hotch has jokes? I love it.

Whee! He has a sense of humor! *g* Is it too much to hope he'll smile at one of the team? I watched that awful ep with the new team and it was ridiculous how many times he smiled at the lazy-eye guy...he NEVER smiles with his own team, wtf?

OMG, I knew there was a good reason to delete my Facebook page.

*smugface* Way ahead of you, I never had one to begin with!

This show is making you scared to do everything, help people, be online, drive home with GPS....

IKR?! I would never stop to help anyone, I'd call the police AFTER I get the hell out of there. And I mean, all those ruses serial killers use...'No, sir, I don't give a damn about your lost puppy!' / 'What's that? You hear a baby crying? I don't have a maternal bone in my body, too bad' / 'Your car broke down? What a shame. How about I call someone for you instead of coming out to give you my phone?'

I'm starting to think Hotch wears the same ugly reddish tie in the field, or maybe he has 7 to 10 similarly ugly ones.

IT'S THE SAME TIE OF DOOM! And I've seen it spreading to other shows like a hideous virus of failtastic proportions! *flails madly* GAH, THE ABOMINATION! IT BURNS MY EYES!

Yes, to everything you said, especially the helping people. its ridiculous, there is helping someone, like calling for help from a safe distance and putting yourself in harm's way. Dont the victims on CM ever watch the news?

And I swear, if Prentiss doesnt buy Hotch a tie for his next birthday I am going to be soooooooo mad at her....they should all buy him one.

Murry noticed that Rossi's hair was dyed as well and she didnt like it either.

I got that Facebook so I could stalk talk with one of my old college professors.

Hotch definitely needs to smile more. His morose attitude is a little unbelievable and kinda getting annoying. They all find something to smile about. Maybe not in ever episode but at a pretty good ratio, especially when they're altogether and working on things, like on the plane or on the phone with Garcia. That man is going to have a heart attack from being all wound up. But I do love me a Hotchalanche.

Omg, one ep was so freaky- the woman did everything right, except the guy got into her garage somehow and she hadn't locked the door between the garage and the house... *shudders* Mother and I immediately looked over at our own door, lol. But we're very careful that way, even if we know the garage is locked, we still keep the inside one secure as well.

Dont the victims on CM ever watch the news?

EXACTLY. I'm sure there are better ways to obtain their victims, but the writers aren't too fussed with giving them any common sense. *eyeroll* I suppose it'd take too long to show an UNSUB luring a smart, sensible victim into their trap, so they just show the twits without two brain cells to rub together. *eyeroll*

Mind you, Garcia running towards that UNSUB...*headdeskwallfloor* I was so irritated with her there! Okay, she explained it afterwards but it was still not worth risking her life over!

I love your tie-as-present idea! Btw, what do you think Hotch would get Emily as a birthday present? As a colleague, I mean. I was pondering this after I realized that Reid's BAU b'day party really was an actual scene and not a cracky dream.

His morose attitude is a little unbelievable and kinda getting annoying

Look, so the man got knifed pretty bad by a serial killer and his ex-wife was killed by that same guy and he's dealing with being a single father [is his sister-in-law looking after Jack, then? May as well adopt the kid], that's no reason to deny us those gorgeous dimples, damn it! Find some joy in the workplace, look at the hotties you're working with, man!

Exactly, I demand dimples in the workplace as of now!!! And he is definitely working with some hotties.....I would be smiling all day long. Maybe he just needs to get laid ; )

Ooooh, what would Hotch get interesting. Possible fic to be written on that so I have to thank you for that Annie. Good call, I havent been coming up with much fic lately : )

Yeah, there are a good amount of twits out there for sure. People arent at all vigilant even when they know there is an Unsub about cuz JJ just gave a press conference.

Imma glare at LJ for eating my comment first.

Now, on to the comment itself.

Hehe @ socks. I'd ask why you don't throw them out and get new ones, but I do the same thing.

$2 million/ep? Wow. I thought it was nuts when Billy Petersen was getting $600k/ep.

What are the AU characters doing to change things?

That was a great episode. The geek in me is simultaneously intrigued and mildly freaked out by this.

How did I not notice JM's hair? Rossi looks good either way, but it is noticeable now that I'm looking again. Eh, Joe Mantegna is a very attractive man either way.

Garcia was amazing. She looked great and had a fantastic role in the episode. Morgan was so sweet with her for the second week running! (Lose the Lynch, girl!)

You're right, they do look great in black. He looks good in most everything though.

Yeah, Hotch was awesome.

Ha!!! And not to use the location features on LJ/Twitter! People don't need to know where I'm at. I also don't need a Webcam! It can be turned on remotely and that is not good, no matter what everyone else tries to tell me.

LOL. Yes, Ed is going to scare everyone. What is it with CBS' guys and ties? Don Flack wore awful ties until he got too depressed to wear any.

I thought for sure the Grandpa was clean or his grandkids got into the computer or something. I was w-w-wr-wrong. I like being surprised though.

I haven't seen any spoilers, but I'm with you as far as Shemar goes. We must not lose him!

I liked it very much. I may have liked it a bit more than the last two. Definitely more than the tat episode. I like technology cases. I think it would be completely awesome to have Penelope's job, but I'm not smart enough for that, so I can't have it. :P

Have an awesome Thursday. :)

NBC went into the red to give the Friends $2 million in the 10th season because they were desperate to keep the show and I dont think they've recovered from that yet. These "stars" are not worth it at all. And the ones who are dont ask for that kind of money.

I still see Garcia and Morgan as best friends, wonderful friends, and I do not want that to change. I love Kevin sooooo much and so does Penelope. But she was super fierce last night and she got that piece of crap in the end, just like she promised. More Garcia trauma, which sucked, but it made her more determined than ever.

The only remotely good thing about the loss of Rossi's gray is it kinda let a story tickle at the base of my skull. I can see Erin's face when she finds the Just for Men box in her bathroom trashcan.

OMG, they look soooooo good in black, it like made me pause and then I was like *damn* and actually whistled. Seriously.

I thought grandpa was gonna be a twist like, we want him to be innocent but he's actually the guiding force behind it all, but it still stung when he actually was involved because....ewwww, grandpas should just be grandpas.

In AU land, and mind you so far this is all in my head as I work to get this on paper, Hotch is coming out the gate deciding he might have feelings for Emily, I dont know what's going on with Jason but he's kinda mellow and not spoiling for a fight, Sam is in love with someone and has never acknowledged it and its not his fiancee or Emily, and Emily....I think she's writing a book but she doesnt know it yet. I just crossed 60 written pages last night and the plot is coming together. I have an ending, which is awesome, but not much cohesive middle. I need to work on that.

That's just not worth it, IMO. If you can't afford it, don't go there.

They are definitely best friends. I don't love Kevin's character, but that's just me.

Oh!!! I want to see this! "Canon" Rossi needs to let it gray over the summer. Erin's reaction will be great!

When I went back to see Morgan in black again, it certainly was a pleasant sight. Dannnng.

Exactly. Sweet lil old men should be sweet and decent.

That's fantastic. I'm glad Sam has someone good. Hotch needs his Emily. What can we say? I'm sure it'll be good either way. You seem to have issues with the "cohesive middle" more than anything else in your AUs.

Me and cohesive middles are not good friends. We're getting to know each other better though and might get along better with time : )

Erin loves her sexy man. She hates that he dyed his hair but its something she can make jokes about. They always make each other laugh.

As long as you can coexist amicably, it's all good.

She's got good reason to love him. He doesn't need to look younger though. At all. He's sexy as is. Their joking will be good though.

Oh, I'm still waiting on my source to reupload 3x06 for the icon. So far, I'm seeing a few images of Rossi/Strauss on other people's caps, but I want to check hers. I did find someone who'd done episode 100, but the show did those shots back and forth, not panned out.

Ooh, yay for caps....OMG to actually get a Rossi/Strauss, you know I'll fall over right. I'll be right on the floor in total happiness.

No, he definitely does not need to look younger....the man is all man. And she wants that man. Oh, and I didnt forget your story for the last set of icons you made me. Vulnerable Erin, coming right up. OK, not right up, she isnt that easy but it will be the next Rossi/Strauss, most likely this weekend.

YES! It's not lovey-dovey, but it's THEM - IN THE SAME SCENE!

He looks dang good as is. I don't think anyone could accuse him of anything else.

No worries. You'll get to it when you get to it. :)

None of our Hotch/Prentiss ones are lovey dovey either, at least not without creative artwork but we love them just the same : )

I just wanted to let you know that I hadnt forgot. I wasnt sure in what direction I wanted to go in but I think I got a main plot point now.

I didn't see the preview for next week, I haven't looked for it online yet but I haven't been able to find them in the past.

I just updated with my thoughts at my journal, and I think I liked the ep a little bit more than you did. I like that Bernero takes things that are a part of everyone's daily lives and makes you think about them, because a lot of people are not very smart about their own security. I don't think everyone should go into a state of paranoia, but I think a little bit more self-awareness here and there is necessary for some.

Date: 2010-05-21 06:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I believe that as well, its just that people are naturally paranoid so when you see all this stuff, it doesnt necessarily change your behavior but you're just like "omg, anyone can find me and kill me".

I liked the episode I just didnt think the plot was memorable for me. Reid has no email....that's just not even plausible. Loved the team, as always, but I didnt like the lack of pathology and not finding out how the profile was leaked. But Garcia was made of such win and the episode goes in the win column for sure.

From: [identity profile]
I don't know about the naturally paranoid thing, I see girls (and guys) my age doing some really stupid shit online and elsewhere that would make you think that they aren't really concerned with their own safety. Hopefully with age will come maturity.

Yeah I was surprised that Reid wouldn't have email. He isn't exactly Garcia, but I would expect someone like him to utilize stuff like that.

Date: 2010-05-21 07:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah, the Reid email thing was ridiculous and completely unbelievable. He is a 28 year old FBI agent, he has to have like 3 email addresses. Who wrote that? It doesnt make sense? Does no Facebook make sense? Yes? But no email is illogical...he at least has an account and has to check it everyday.

Also, I guess naturally paranoid wasnt exactly what I meant. I guess I should say post 9/11 is all about "watch out, everything can get you" and while all these people seem to prescribe to that they also do all these reckless online things as if there wont be possible consequences.

Oh yeah, I see what you mean. I think people feel safe online because they're in the comfort of their homes most times (or workplaces, etc), but don't realize that a lot more weirdos can get to you that way if they really want to. I definitely forget about that sometimes.

ETA: what a coincidence...just as I was pressing "submit" for this comment, one of my friends Tweeted their exact location, address and everything, via foursquare. *facepalm*

Address and everything? How crazy can you be?

Yeah, I think you're right about people feeling safe online. They think, who could hurt me, I'm at home....I can say and do what I want. But there are people out there who can.

I have to agree with you. I liked the episode but it wasn't my favorite. I was a little glad it wasn't the finale. Not that I want anyone on the team to be in harm, but it wasn't epic enough to be a finale. Especially not for this show.

I thought Garcia looked so cute in the whole thing. I wish I was as smart as she is.

My dad and I LOL'd at Hotchs boy band comment. I love when he makes funny litte quips like that. But they don't let him be funny enough. And I agree, they don't let him smile enough either. It's not really annoying me, but come on. We know he loves his team, let him show some emotions other than pissed off at the bad guys.

I really wanted to know how leaked the facial thing to the press too. I was REALLY lookng forward to finding out who it was and watching Hotch and or Rossi freak out on the dude.

I loved Morgan in this episode. I always love him, but between making Garcia feel better about him being all up in her space, and almost killing the kiddie porn-watching videos of murder online guy, he was amazing.

Also, the moral of the story of this episode for me was not to accept anyone on those kinds of sights I don't know. Which I don't do anyway. Because even though my friends are a bit crazy, they aren't "I'm going to kill you and keep you in a giant freezer" crazy.

Also, I almost felt bad for the Grandpa. I mean, I get that the knew what he was doing but still.

From: [identity profile]
I didnt feel bad for the grandpa at all, I felt bad for me having to deal with the grandpa knowing what the Unsub was made me sick. I actually wanted Rossi to kick his ass, which I knew he couldnt do, but I still wanted him too.

Hotch's occasional quips are fantastic but remind me of how morose his character has become. I know that's the writers fault but he chose to stay in the BAU so he needs to be there for more than barking out orders and glaring at suspects. I hope season 6 sees him integrating back into the family circle.

I love Morgan and Garcia, that will never ever change. They are so good for and too each other and their friendship always makes me smile....its usually the feel good part of what can be a crushing, sad, or violent episode. So I always look forward to it.
