It's still hard to believe a show of this quality is going to just let it go like that. Perhaps she'll be back later to continue/develop/finalize the story.

I sure hope so. I sort of liked the new 'do and in any case Elle (Lola) had a smokin' body (from what I could gather ). Her replacement doesn't seem quite up to those standards (but she could grow on me).

Well in that episode Hotchner followed her around and asked her to do a phyic evaluation. It was a pretty good episode for her to go out on. Not sure of the reasons but sometimes actors want off the show to purue other gigs or wanted more money? who knows.

I'm very late to this party...

I'm actually a bigtime LOST fan, and was wondering what all the hoopla was about with them catching and then passing LOST in total viewers. I mean ANOTHER procedural? How good can it be?

Well I've been blown away, caught up with the first season on a 2 day blitz viewing over last weekend, then caught up with season 2. Great show!

Maybe Elle will show up later as a vigilante unsub :-)

RE: Beginning scene with bus - Had anyone else noticed the outside bus number was 539 but when the inside of the bus was being shown, it read as 1330?

Other than that, I thought tonigh't episode was a little too straight-on. Not enough mystery. I knew the teacher had a hand in it in some way. BUT, I still LOVE this show.

Incidently, I read in the entertainment section of The Tennesseean that this show "requires patientce." They state the reason this show is getting successful, is because us, as a viewing audience, is more patient inwaiting for things to occur. Not as much action, as intrigue (maybe?). Anyhow, I thought it was a pretty important point.

(From Marc Berman's Thursday, Nov. 9, 2006, Programming Insider column at Mediaweek.com )

In the 9-10 p.m. battle of ABC's Lost versus CBS' booming Criminal Minds, it was another week of shared leadership. Lost was second in the overnights (11.6/17) and total viewers (17.10 million) and first among adults 18-49 (7.0/17), while Criminal Minds was just the opposite with an 11.7/17 in the overnights (#1), 17.54 million viewers (#1) and a second-place 5.1/12 among adults 18-49. As for Lost, considering we now have to wait another three months for an original episode, I wish there would have been some sort of resolution -- anything -- last night. Why we needed another back-story on Kate's shady past (which revealed nothing new about the character) was beyond me. J.J. -- what's going on?...

I really enjoy CM, but I wasn't too impressed with the episode last night. I didn't find it nearly as suspenseful as the last few episodes. (I, personally, did find the woman who defused the bombs to be quite attractive though.)

I hope either Elle comes back or maybe they could get Kate from NCIS into the show

I think I was sitting next to A.J. Cook in Vegas this past weekend in Gallaghers at NYNY. If it wasn't her, she has a twin. Wow !!

Agreed, quite the little hottie.

I've noticed CM tends to trample on racial/sexual stereotypes at will. They do it so much and so well that you almost don't notice. Last night they had an Asian cop with the name of Dennis Jones (or something to that effect), and a female minority bomb tech. I think it's cool.

A so-so episode last night. So we have a new agent on the horizon? She really get into the mix yet.

Criminal Mindswon the 9 p.m. hour with 16.56 million viewers and a 4.9/13 among adults 18-49. Comparably, however, Criminal Minds did not benefit without ABC's Lost in the time period.

Glad to see this show isn't leeching any of LOST's audience, but it's keeping up it's same #s.

An excellent episode last nite. Good cooperation finally between FBI & CIA. At least we didn't have polar bears or black clouds..
post #75 of 418
It was an ok episode. The writing on this show is tremendous, I'll say that. The whole Gideon slowly moving up the terrorist's prayer time to make him think it was night by the time they needed his info was awesome.

I also like how the new agent isn't starting off all tight with the group. She's calling Gideon "Sir". Nice touch.

And is anyone else glad to see Garcia being much more involved with the group this season?
post #76 of 418
wow, what a bunch of crap! i'm tired of hearing/seeing about 9/11 all over gain. Take it from someone who saw 9/11 up close and personal. (can we say chambers street?) can't we just stop trying to recreate that 9/11 terrorist feeling ion our television shows? the creep who played the terroriost even looked like osama...that sux.

i was very upset after watching this episode. i still like CM very much, i just didn't find this episode very appealing

.....And I thought that this was the best and most riveting episode I've seen yet. It stuck in my mind for hours afterwards.
(I did NOT witness 9/11 personally). To each his/her own......
post #78 of 418
I thought it was a very good episode...but then again, I also didn't think that it had anything at all to do with 9/11.

Hmm...I don't get it. That would seem to be as unfounded as a person from foreign culture X claiming that Eva Longoria looks just like Jennifer Lopez. The only features that they share in common are their gender and the color of their skin.

Did you see the dudes eyes? They look like osama's.

For a minute there, I thought that the 11/29 show was "Huff". Bird, sure does have the disturbed teen act down!

I think this has been done before. Does anyone remember the old Superman TV series from the 50's with George Reeves? There was an episode where the criminal had a plot to be declared legally dead by disappearing for seven years but was really living in a thick concrete bunker. He had a clock locked to Naval Observatory time and Superman had the Naval Observatory slowly advance the time so that he would come out several minutes early and was arrested.
post #82 of 418
Yep, I remember that episode but I think it would ok to borrow from it now, what 50 years later. I thought this was one of the better episodes but overall this season has not been as good as last, do I miss whats-her-name already? I don't know, the last ep about the prostitutes was just ok for me.
post #83 of 418
Late to the party, new convert to this show and must say I am loving it. Now I have to go rent the earlier seasons to catch up so I can see the backstories or how they started off together. Only saw a few re-run episodes in over the last few weeks but hooked now.The writing is excellent.
post #84 of 418
This show keeps getting better! Poor Reid seems to be having some issues with his drug problem. I wonder when he will really snap and the boss get on him about it. Emily seems to really add to the show. At first I hated her, but she adds a heck of a lot more than Morgan does.

Last night's story was a bit upseting however. Again, we are being pummeled by television dramas about war. I see enough war on CNN and in the papers. Can't we have a stirring episode without bringing politics/war into it? Just an opinion...

The show was interesting to me because it was set in Houston and I have to drive through the 5th Ward to get to work every day. Belive me, it is not as bad as they portrayed it ---but I would not go anywhere in town without my " protection". HPD is down over 1,500 police officers due to retirement and normal attrition. I guess they were tired of the stereotypical East LA setting.

Good show and I expect Reid to be called on the carpet soon.

You make it sound like every episode has a political/war theme/plot. It's just one episode and I thought it was very compelling and timely. I also thought it added another dimension to the show by dealing with a character that evoked empathy from the viewer because of the tragic nature of his criminal mind.

Every episode is a "bit upsetting". It wouldn't be such a good show if they weren't.

What does "un sub" stand for? Is this a new term introduced in the show?

unknown subject -
It struck me as a bit pretentious at first, but I'm guessing it's a real term used by the FBI. If it isn't, then it is pretentious.

From Wikipedia:
" * Unsub is a law-enforcement slang acronym for "Unknown Subject Of An Investigation". A less common replacement for "perp" or "suspect". It may

also have come from "unsubstantiated," referring to charges against an individual that have not been proven.

* Unsub (TV series) was the title of a 1989 television series starring David Soul as a forensic investigator.

* The word is used heavily on the CBS drama Criminal Minds, a crime procedural dealing with an elite team of FBI profilers."
