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 having your reaction to this season. I have them recorded and I'm still 2 shows behind and not as eager to get caught up. The gore level does seem to be higher and the stories feel flat with the emphasis on the 'weird pycho killer du semaine.'

Yeah, I'm missing the element of "These are all human beings." It was especially evident in the episode where the victims were prostitutes. I kept comparing it to how the sex workers were treated in "Sex Birth Death" and "Legacy," and it came up very short.
