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.

We were talking about the season overall the other day. I am very annoyed with the new formula that has Penelope IDing the unsub and his location, the team suiting up, and then breaking in to rescue the last victim every time. They used to lose them. We used to have a sense of real amazement and joy when a victim was saved.

This season, it's all superman.

Yeah. It happened, but we didn't lose the last victim all that often--but what's different is that we're led to care less about the victims we DO lose.
