Criminal Minds In The Media: Media Liaison

Recommended Posts

I was surprised that Variety had not done any sort of follow up to the 'exclusive' they had last year regarding the serial sex offender allowed to roam the set for multiple seasons. It did seem to 'go away', after it appeared that StJohns was no longer involved. I had this confirmed by associates who work in the business in LA (not CM, but people, especially crew people talk). Got to be honest, I'm pretty sickened by how they seem to have been allowed to continue to brush this under the carpet, to continue the cover up so to speak (my contacts tell me the matter is very definitely not closed). Quite frankly it has completely soured my already sour taste that I had for the show.  Its disapointing also that 'fans' were not as vocal about this matter as they have been on others.  

I work in the media and have sadly noticed that coverage and reaction to such events if the victims are male, seems to garner less outrage. The fact that the perp in this case was not in the public eye, does not minimise the seriousness of the matter. We either call out ALL perps or none. CM really dropped the ball on this one.

I do hope Jane's appearance is a good one. Initially I feared the show would kill her off, but now reading that her appearance is linked to a revelation in season 14, now I'm not sure.

Always good to see her pop up :). Maybe her visit will have something to do with whatever fallout comes from that confession JJ shares with Reid in this week's finale? I also hope that her visit will allow us to finally learn just where the heck she's been these past couple seasons after everything with Reid's time in prison :p. 

(Also, dang, I didn't realize this final appearance will mark nine times she's been on here over the years. Nice.)

Oh well, at least I got a heads up, and I'm very grateful for that. Season 15 hasn't even begun yet and I can already start making a list of the episodes I don't even wanna know anything about and which I will purposely miss. That  is the true beauty of the internet, baby, Lol. That precious time will be saved to do my laundry (a task that sounds so exciting all of a sudden) while imagining what it would be like to have Hotch, Rossi and a not dead Gideon on screen all three at once working on a case together. Definitely, infinitely more exciting than the perspective of watching some stupid "Reid's mamma" show. 

 

Life lesson :  When facing an unpleasant situation, ALWAYS try to look at the bright side if there is one. It helps.

From TV Line's Ask Ausiello: Question: As filming is underway for Criminal Minds‘ final season, are there any juicy details or blasts from the past scoop? —CatPatrick
Ausiello: Word on the street (the street being Hollywood Blvd., of course) is that Matthew Gray Gubler’s Dr. Reid will be getting a fairly significant love interest during the 10-episode swan song (which should be welcome news to those in the anti-Reid/JJ brigade).

Yay, Hotch! The real BAU Unit Chief.

I am curious and open minded how all of this will unfold, though I hope this character's quirkiness is not as irksome and eye rolling as Penelope's. I want a character that feel "real" and not like some Manic Pixie Dream Girl (which I find gag inducing when it comes to quirkiness).

Now that the show has FINALLY revisited Spencer's love life after seven years, I wonder what was the entire purpose of the JJ love confession boondoggle? I know Erica said it will all be addressed, and I hope the answer is a satisfactory one to justify some potential character retcon.

I see JJ and Reid as just good friends/siblings; never more than that.

Ironically enough, I drafted a bunch of CM fanfiction stories with someone named Max for Reid.

Heh, I thought about that, too.

Well, as some have theorized, it could be a situation where JJ's in a place, when the new season begins, where she feels ready to explore these feelings towards Reid...only to find out he's now seeing somebody else. 

Even if that's not the route they go, though, I've also thought that maybe one reason they addressed this history between Reid and JJ now was to kinda bring things full circle with their history together? Compare/contrast their feelings towards each other now to how they were way back in the first season, and why they kept those feelings at bay/didn't confess to (or act on) them any sooner, and things of that sort. 

Anywho, as for the casting itself, I do like Rachel Leigh Cook, so I'm intrigued to see how she'll be with Reid. She's played a couple bookish, quiet, thoughtful characters in the things I've seen her in, so it'd be rather fitting if she plays a character like that here, too. 

The article says we'll see her for "at least" two episodes, though-while that obviously implies she could wind up being in more, even so, a small handful of episodes doesn't exactly fit the "fairly significant" description we saw last week in regards to the talk of him getting a new love interest. Unless they mean she'll be significant in some way other than being the woman he settles down with, that is. 

Who knows. But yeah, I am curious to see what comes of this, no matter what route it takes.

There goes my preferred ending for Reid- where his final scene ends just as he meets her for the first time.

Oh well. Rachael Leigh Cook is a pretty good actress to be paired up with, so I think this could work out well. I may even get as close as I can to my other preferred Reid coupling, him and Zoe Hawkes (still gone too soon).

Good for you, Spencer! Rachael's a babe!

I just hope they don't ruin it with the whole JJ/Reid... whatever that is by this point.

He was good in that episode. Always interesting to see people play against type a bit like that.

So sad to hear this news.

I thought Luke Perry really showed his talent in "Minimal Loss", and he was one of the better parts of the original 90210 (yeah, I watched it...). He will be missed, and gone WAY too soon at 52.

Hey.....new here.  I have been binge watching old eps on ION Television for the last couple of years (never watched it in primetime).  I love this show!

What's the scoop on this sex predator on set?

I have no clue, but if I had to guess, I bet its showrunner Erica Messer.  Especially with her placement in the middle.

Ahh, that is a good guess!
