My favorite Joe spot, other than the "Simpsons", was the bad bumbling comic character Eddie in "Baby's Day Out" .

He cracks me up in Airheads, as the DJ, Ian.

After watching CM last night, I can safely say it is by far my favorite show on TV right now. (Well, maybe second only to Heroes).

Just a few observations about last night's episode...

What is definately missing is Gideon's introspect, cerebral outlook. I mean, the crew on there now is all guns blzaing and thre guys are all testosterone. There isnt enough "thought". Does anyone agree or underestand what I mean by this?

What really pissed me off was having injected those cats. I was very upset by this and was surprised the producers could show such a thing

the two villains last night looked like they came straight out of this German thriller from 1997

http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0119167/

two harmless looking young guys wearing gloves con their way into a home then proceed to terrorize and kill the family.

I haven't watched the show at all this season, and the CBS website doesn't have recaps. Anybody care to let me know how they wrote off Gideon's character? Did they kill him off? Thanks.

That was wild! I knew he was up to no good...but shooting her point blank BLAM!

So do you think he had a personal axe to grind with her? He obviously targeted her specifically, knowing she couldn't resist helping him with this PC. But why all the subterfuge? If he wanted her dead, why not just shoot her and not leave evidence?

Yea, dramatic, but we all know next week she'll hover between life and death, you'll get all the emotional flashbacks and dialog from the regulars, after which we'll be told she managed to survive.

As a previous poster said, you just KNEW there was something going on; the guy LOOKED like a sociopath.

I like CM a lot, like the characters, but when one of the stars gets shot you just KNOW they're not going anywhere (with very few exceptions). Sort of takes the edge off, you know?

I think Joe Montegna is doing a pretty good job. I knew he would. I think there's tons of stuff the writers could drum up for him.

What do you guys think of JM?

I've allways been a Joe Montegna fan. He's doing a great job so far in fitting into this show.

I'm ticked off about Garcia though. In a show this dark her charactor adds some much needed comic relief at times. This is one show that just might kill her off. CM makes a point of being anti "warm and fuzzy". Unlike Grey's Anatomy, I doubt Garcia will have a dream about her Mom and be back next week.

I think he's doing no less than the job I expected from him.

JM is a very experienced and accomplished actor, though underappreciated because he keeps such a low profile. Just goes to show you how important it is to employ people who can actually ACT. Mandy was fine but Joe's at least his equal.

And no, I'm not JM's agent.

Kind of strange if she survives the shot. Looked like it was point blank to the chest, but this is Hollywood..

Mandy never knew what he wanted to do. He dabbled in musicals, broadway, films, tv, and music. He seems to get bored rather easily. He did give hints during the past that he found his character and the overall mood of the show to be depressing. I believe that his acting in CM suffered as his character became more rigid as the seasons went on. I thouroughly enjoy Joe.

I have to disagree with you there. In every single episode, the team displays the uncanny ability to discover the unsubs' identity just in the nick of time to save the final victim. So even though they show grotesque violence and murder throughout the show, they always leave you with a "warm and fuzzy" happy ending.

The end of this week's episode was warm and fuzzy? Yikes! If having one of the show's principal characters brutally gunned down in front of her apartment by her deranged date was warm and fuzzy, what is dark?

I think he means they usually save more people than they lose...and often they have a musical montage that projects feelings of closure and well being. The Halloween "Coming Home" montage with Daughtry being an example.

I think this show needs it, give the dark nature of the cases. I don't want every episode ending in a downer.

I'm actually turning around on this show, and it's because of Mantegna. There was no real reason for the existence of Gideon's character. He just didn't seem to fulfill any special role. And he was boring. Thus, I didn't really like the show.

Mantegna's character is interesting, though that may be because they are keeping us in the dark about him. I'm beginning to really like the show now.

how did he like going thru life with a first name like "Mandy?".. Good choice for replacement, very mysterious man..

great episode so far tonight.
post #140 of 418
Ok, I missed the first half of tonight's episode (11/21). I thought Garcia was shot in the chest? How come she's walking around at the end like nothing happened? What did I miss? Was she wearing a giant piece of jewelry that deflected the bullet?

Great episode last night. I really thought that ****** would be the one to f that guy up. JM is doing an OK job --- but I miss Mandy. He always seemed " on the dark side " and added a lot to the show. My wife and I do not miss this program.

Excellent episode, Garcia must have had great medical coverage..Never thought suspect was a cop..Was the head of Internal Affairs the same guy who plays Grissoms boss on CSI?

And - Garcia may have met her soulmate. Any idea if we'll be seeing more of him, or was it a one-off?
post #146 of 418
Ok, guys, I'm lost now. What's the deal with CM? Since Joe M. got on the show, I thought it's been rocking. Last night, I was greatly disappointed. I didn't understand why they seemed to change this show so drastically. Wasbn't it going well? And I thouht Garcia was under investigation by the Dept? She got cleared of that? ...I musta missed something.

I thought the episode was written to emphasize the unsub's POV and see the BAU as an outsider. Without A Trace did this last year. They had a higher profile guest star than normal, so they put him to good use. Garcia was cleared after she saved the supervisor guy from being killed by the unsub last week.

As the other poster mentioned this seemed like a one shot deal to emphasize Malcolm in the Middle's guest appearance. They purposely kept the vicitm info away from us as well as their profile so we wouldn't know until the end why he was killing (although by then it was easy to figure out).

Garcia had one encryted file that was not allowed, but it was only their personal information. She was protecting it so it couldn't get hacked like it did a few years ago.

I doubt they are changing the format of the show...don't panic :-)
post #149 of 418
Last night's episode was pretty interesting, even if it wasn't entirely believable. CBS obviously still has a few "new" episodes of some shows socked away. CSI:NY and tonight's CSI are supposed to be "new" ones also.
post #150 of 418
damn, I cant believe this thread is dead, yet alone no one is talking about the season finale. I deff did not expect what happened, to happen. For those of us that did watch, who do u think got it?
