In Valhalla Hotch says to Clyde Easter, “Pack lightly, it gets hot in Guantanamo”. Why would he say that to Easter? We saw Gideon go to Gitmo to interview Gin-da-la. Gitmo houses alleged US enemies who may have connections with Al Quada. Easter does not fall in to that category, so why threaten him with Gitmo. Even Doyle wouldn’t have been sent to Gitmo. (See ”A Few Good Men “to learn that Guantanamo is called Gitmo.
Criminal MInds season finale was the most watched show Wednesday night with 10.8 million viewers. However, they came in second place to Modern Family in the 18-49 rating share category with 2.7 ( to Mf’s 3.6). That’s the good news.
“On CBS, the two hour finale of earned a 2.7 up 4 percent from last week’s 2.6 adults 18-49 rating but down 25 percent from a 3.6 for last season’s finale on May 16, 2012. ” This is the bad news.
CBS won for the year. That means it can charge the most for ads.
Congrats to Criminal Minds for coming in at #11 for the most viewership.
Writers, please look at your calendars when writing. Beth initially tells Hotch her triathalon is in January. Later, over tea, Beth asks Hotch what he will do if he misses his FBI triathalon. Hotch tells her, “Maybe I’ll do yours.” But his will be in February. Hers is in January. And again, marathons and triathalons are NOT held up north in January, February, and March.
There are also 2 altruistic stars on Criminal MInds: Shemar Moore and Joe Mantegna.
Shemar raises money for Muscular Dystrophy a la Jerry Lewis, except that Shemar does it his own way. Joe does what he can to support military personel a la Bob Hope. These aren’t one shot “raise money/photo ops” for them. Instead, these are lifelong commitments. It’s a positive when celebrities use their fame to help others and not for self-promotion.
Kudos for the writing team and producers for creating 3 altruistic characters; JJ, Penelope and Blake’ husband.
Altruistic people a givers; they give of themselves without expecting anything back. JJ volunteers with a new mother’s group. Garcia ran a victim support group,. Blake’s husband worked with Doctors Without Boarders. I can’t think of another show that had so many unselfishly giving and caring characters.
In the “Big Sea” I don’t understand how Reid can identify the bones so quickly as to male or female when only the pelvic bones can be distinguished, An arm bone is an arm bone.
The bones were in the Atlantic ocean and due to waves and silt, they should have been mixed together. Yet the script makes them appear to be on very separate levels. How do yu figure out those levels when a machine is moving and spillout out silt and water?
If the actors had changed clothes we would have been given the idea that lots of time passed while trying to identify the bones.
I realize the writers needed a way for Foyet to learn Hotch’s address but really, would Hotch need to write Haley’s name and address in his planner/address book when she is living in the house that they bought together? Besides, if Foyet learned and got into Hotch’s apartment he could have found out Haley’s address. Still, the scene set up Haley and Jack’s exile to the witness protection program.
The writers had Hotch playing the hypocrite. When the terrorists were in the mall, planning an attack the day the mall opened, Hotch called Hallie, intending to tell her not to go and get Jack’s picture taken. However, when JJ wanted to call home and tell someone not to take Henry to the park, Hotch told her not to; it wasn’t fair if she used her knowledge of a possible biological attack and not warn the public.
