criminal minds rossi tv

Nice to know that CM has the same rosy view of publishing that all Hollywood seems to. ;-)

Also, I usually really like Virgil Williams' work, but I am dissapoint that, in what seems to me a very un-Criminal-Minds-ish element, the prostitutes in "The Apprentice" were treated as disposable, while the nice girl with a job in a pet store got rescued. And none of the women demonstrated the kind of agency I'm used to seeing in the show.

This season is not standing out for me, so far. The gore level seems to be higher, and the humaneness/agency seems to be lacking.

Alas.

I'm still trying to figure out why they bothered to add Jeanne Tripplehorn's character (that description says something in itself -- I can't even remember the character's name). She seems to be nothing more than an older, quieter Spencer without the backstory, and he's much more interesting.

Prentice was interesting from the getgo. This lady sure isn't.
I disagree categorically.

I love Alex.

She's mature, has her own life and interests, knows who she is and what she wants and isn't afraid to use her power--I am really digging seeing a mature competent woman on a TV show.

Much as I miss Prentiss, Blake is my favorite thing about the new season so far.
She also gets less smart as the season goes on... She goes from being someone who occasionally jumps ahead of Spenser to yet another person boggled by his brilliance very quickly.
