watching the big game/revelations for the first time in… at least six months. it used to be my be all and end all, this was my shit right here. i still love it. its still amazing. 

i mean jesus christ CM look what you did… you took my favorite character, the prettiest guy on [american] tv, and you kidnapped him, tortured him, and doped him up on drugstore heroin and turned him into a junkie. oh, and plus theres tragic backstory with jane lynch as his mom and amazing bespectacled baby-reid. just TUG ALL MY HEARTSTRINGS WHY DONT YOU.

i get this like, wait… did *I* write this episode?? feeling. tailor fucking made. 

ive written a lot of shit based on this episode. my spencer reid-based character [slightly AU] was my big deal for over a year. i feel like i want to write him again… but it kind of played out. it ran its course. i finally had to kill of his villain [sylar-based… i know. imagine the sexiness. having a hot bonnie-and-clyde murder spree with his boyfriend too], it was just time. theres only so many times you can re-kidnap somebody, and you can really only pull that almost-died-but-came-back-to-life card once. it sucks to close the door on a character. i miss him. but the shows played out for me too so its just time. au revoir, spencer.

cudos to you if you don’t hate seaver

i never saw any reason to hate seaver. i was excited about her character… a young female fbi trainee?? why wouldnt you be?

sure there are bureaucratic things behind her character to hate. i absolutely despise a show that would take away two female characters that fans like and replace them with a brand new one for no reason. but that has nothing to do with seaver herself. her character had a ton of potential. 

now if they had started some kind of gross relationship with reid… we mightve had a problem. not because id be that jealous, but because i could see them making it really  stupid.

In the nicest way possible of saying and typing this.
to all of you , who hate JJ/WILL and dont want them to get married for whatever reason
SCREW YOUUUU !!
What is wrong with them? they’ve been together 5/6 years. have a kid and have stable realtionship so yeah they showed them having issues but what couple doesnt with a job like that. !!! anyways I know , I know you can all say it back but I’m a JJWILL SHIPPER FOREVER 
END OF RANT


Can you keep hate out of the tags please, It’s rude. 
Especially since you’re not hating on a character, you’re hating on people, which is worse because unlike the characters, people have feelings and you treating me like my opinion is worth a “SCREW YOU” Isn’t pleasant. And yes, people in the tag who’re against the ship should shut up too, but I haven’t actually seen any for weeks. 
And, for the record, since you did ask, while i support their relationship, having many episodes of them fighting (like, all of them) and then suddenly having them get married?
Not nearly enough development there for me.
I want to see them work out their issues before they get married, and unless they manage that before hand i don’t want them to tie the knot. But regardless, after the mess up with Kevin and Garcia i don’t want them to get married either, because any resolution between them in the next 5 episodes won’t be enough after their… uhm, fight, anyway, it’d be rushed. 
Still, keep it out of the tag if you want to tell people to screw themselves. 

dude, i got similarly yelled at for expressing my opinion about criminal minds to. the girl told me to ‘shut my mouth’ because i dont like reid/prentiss and somehow threatened that the fandom would come after me, or something. 
can we just not say really mean shit or make threats to people when they say things we dont agree with in this fucking fandom? dont tell people to shut up, dont say screw you. its not cool. if you disagree say so with relative niceness or make a fucking argument like the second poster did. its not hard. dont make tumblr a more hostile place.

Last season everyone jumped on the Reid/Prentiss bandwagon, and now they all are jumping onto the Morgan/Prentiss bandwagon. It’s really bugging me.

ridiculous, really. reid/prentiss?????? LOL. how can you ship that, honestly? how can you even picture it without laughing??

How would you like it if someone went out of there way to insult your shipping? Why don’t you tell me who you ship so I can insult it and tell you how laughable it is? I usually don’t insult people or get mad here on tumblr. I’m a sweet, calm girl. But shit like this PISSES me off. Shut your god damn mouth.

There are so many shippings on CM that I hate, and would never ship. But you know what? I keep my mouth fuckin shut because I have some respect for people. People love there shippings, it keeps them going sometimes. And just because you don’t like a shipping doesn’t mean you can bash it whenever you want. If you want to be part of the Criminal Minds fandom, then learn some fuckin respect. Because you will NEVER make friends in this fandom that way. People stick together. I’m a decently well know CM blog, and I ship ReidxPrentiss forever. And yet, I respect other shippings. I don’t bash them. I have JJxReid, JJxPrentiss, ReidxMorgan, ReidxHotch, Every kind of shipping, friends. And I respect them all. Just because you don’t ship it does mean you can say shit like that.

So, watch your mouth. Because if I ever see this shit again, the ReidxPrentiss fandom will come together as it is right now. And it will not be a pretty site.

Learn some god damn respect. This is what really pisses me off about our fandom. People who think that saying shit like this is okay. It’s not. Our fandom doesn’t apperciate bashing of any kind.

wow so its really weird to get hate for something you wrote like three months ago. 

first of all im really sorry for insulting you, that wasnt my intention. i wasnt actually trying to be a dick, this was honestly my genuine reaction as its just not a pairing that wouldve ever, ever occurred to me. it seems weird to me, thats all i was trying to say. i understand people ship any and everything, but i think it should be okay to comment on something if youre like “wow, odd, that doesnt seem to make a whole lot of canonical sense to me.” except i said it in a not-so-nice way i guess, because thats the way i am.

im not really a “fandom person” so i guess i dont really abide by these fandom rules of conduct. i generally just say whatever the fuck i want and i believe thats my right as a person on the internet. im not attacking anybody personally, im talking about a freaking tv show. i like to think we can talk about things we dont like if we want to. i dont have to “shut my damn mouth” about anything.

you might notice that your post is a lot more mean and inflammatory than mine. just saying. 

since you asked, i dont think i was ever too insane about it but i was a morgan/reid shipper. i actually quit watching the current season of the show a while ago and im not really too huge of a criminal minds fan anymore. so im not really concerned with being part of or making friends in the fandom, not that i ever really was. 

im curious as to what exactly the reid/prentiss fandom will “come together” and do to me, were i ever to offend them again. im… confused. 

confused in general by this massive amount of anger i seem to have incurred.

Where do I start……..The West Wing was for four seasons compulsive TV viewing, the writing and acting on the show was incomparable as countless awards and high ratings attested.  After the departure of Aaron Sorkin, season five floundered and the series lost its way, by Season 6 we were back on track and by the time we had a new “President” at the end of Season 7 the series was back up there and went out on a high.   I have watched Season 7 of Criminal Minds with the same feeling of sadness that I watched Season 5 of The West Wing, finding myself asking the same question over and over as each week passes by and I feel more and more disappointed as the closing credits roll, what have you done with the show I love so much? 

Criminal Minds is like James Bond, The British Carry On Films or a music concert by your favourite artist, there are certain things which are standard which you expect to see and what you pay your money for.  Take those away and you are left with, a basic action movie, a basic comedy film and a concert you didn’t particularly want to see as you didn’t hear anything you would expect.  Shirley Bassey once told a story in an interview that she was begged by a venue owner to return to the stage and sing “Big Spender” before the audience trashed the place, the decision to leave it out of the programme about to cause a riot. Someone has left the “Big Spender out of Criminal Minds this season.  I thought I was the only one feeling this but in the age of modern technology and the not always very nice world of Social Networking I have come to realise that I am not the only one feeling this way.

 

CSI (all three), NCIS and Law and Order SVU have all been running for many years now, they are still massively popular both in the US and here in the UK taking up much of our Prime Time Television, they have faithfully stuck to their original formulas and sad as it maybe that is what we like tried and tested consistency. 

 

Much to my shame I have to admit I was a late starter to Criminal Minds, not sure how it managed to elude me for those first couple of Seasons but it did, I made up for it post haste and can honestly say I have enjoyed many episodes time and time again.  Yes of course I know that Garcia is going to get shot, I know that Haley is going to die at the hands of the Reaper, I know whose black SUV will be blown up at the end of Season 3 but it doesn’t matter. I know that Hotch is going to tear Reid of a strip for putting himself in danger at the end of Elephant’s Memory, I know that Rossi is going to play Professor Rothschild in Masterpiece, I know that Prentiss is going to confess to being the FBI agent in Minimal Loss but it doesn’t matter such was the power of the writing and my empathy with the characters I know and love I am happy to watch it over. 

 

It was rarely that we discovered who the unsub was until at least half way into an episode, if we did there was more often than not a twist in the plot.  Now we find out who did at the start and then watch the team solve the case.  Colombo did that back in the 70’s another series that ran and ran but another series that had its standards, a crumpled rain coat, a cigar and a clapped out old car and of course the well used phrase “there was just one more thing…..”  Heaven forbid changing any of those things, I mean a new Burberry trench coat, perish the thought!  

 

At the time of writing we are up to Episode 16 A Family Affair, I can honestly say in some 16 episodes from a personal perspective I can recall four memorable/outstanding scenes and three of those were in the first two episodes; I am not having a go I just find it, for want of a better expression incredibly sad.  My benchmark Season is 4, and the memorable scenes in Episode 16 Pleasure Is My Business alone would fill a page.  Yes we have seen a few “sick dudes” this season, some heinous crimes but do any one of these compare to, (no I am not going to state the obvious ones), Floyd Feylinn Ferell, I think I was eating my lunch when I discovered what he had done to Tracey Lambert, Eddie Mays and The Roycewood’s to mention but four, the last name of an “unsub” I can even remember in Season 7 and I am not sure if he counts is Ian Doyle.

 

This season for reasons known only to themselves the writers/producers whatever of Criminal Minds have decided that we only get team interaction at the beginning and end of an episode and even that is pretty sketchy and very weak, too many “outside influences”.  We know the BUA team has a life outside of work, but the two ALWAYS overlapped and it NEVER detracted from the “family bond” they share at work: Rossi wrote his books, mentioned in various episodes but the integral part of the plot in Zoe’s Reprise. Prentiss doesn’t get on with her Mother a US Ambassador, mentioned in various episodes and integral to the plot of both Honour Among Thieves and Demonology.  Reid has a schizophrenic mother who we all adore and who has made every episode she has appeared in outstanding, from The Fisher King to the brilliant Memoriam; the relationship she shares with her genius son is both moving and fun.  Who didn’t love finding out that Garcia acted in her spare time and how wonderful was it to see the entire team watching her in action at the Tollgate Theatre at the end of Reflections Of Desire, not a word said as the episode closes, applause and camera pans to the team…….priceless!  

 

The interaction between the team during an episode be it about catching the unsub or about something entirely adhoc was what put Criminal Minds in a league of its own.  Even when it was so dark,  there was a chink of humour;  two instances spring to mind immediately without ANY thought,; Exit Wounds ~ Rossi turns up to the briefing in a tuxedo, “ I see you people way too much” he says after taking a ribbing from the team about his attire.  The Internet is Forever again over the team briefing, “what did you do join a boy band?”  Hotch’s reaction to Reid new haircut. I and I could probably safely say WE miss that. It’s almost as if the writers no longer understand the relationships between the characters or are even scarred of what to write.  The same applies to the team interaction with the unsubs we hardly see that anymore it is almost as if we have two separate stories going on and it only comes together at the end when the unsub is caught or shot.  Some of the best writing over the previous six seasons has taken place when the team have been in the same room as the unsub, right from the outset they showed us how it was done, what BAU actually meant, Gideon and Adrian Bale in Wont Get Fooled Again, Hotch and his quietly menacing interrogation of Vincent Perotta In Natural Born Killer, Hotch again only in antagonistic mode with a terrified Reid and convicted Serial Killer Chester Hardwick in Damage one of Criminal Minds most memorable scenes,  Rossi and Morgan, Reid and Prentiss taking turns at suspected unsubs Barrett and Pearson in JJ and of course Reid’s unusual and mesmerising encounter with Julio Ruiz in Corazon. 

 

The writers do not seem to have any comprehension of the characters they are writing about anymore, the bond between the characters is weak so the bond with audience weakens, as a viewer you do have an understanding or the characters you allow them in your home week after week, you go through every emotion with them, you watch them love, you watch them laugh you watch them cry, you even watch them die,  when the people who are writing for them don’t have that empathy and understanding then how can they be expected to write convincingly for them.

 

Why oh why have the “Powers That Be” decided to change all of this, to leave us with a series we no longer recognise and one which we clearly no longer look forward to or rush home to see.  As I finish my screed Season 8 has been picked up.  If this is to be our last Season then lets go out on a high, if you want their to be a Season 9 and you want ratings to stay high then PLEASE lets go back to how it used to be.  

Thank you so much for writing this. It saved me so much time and effort because I was going to say practically everything you just said.

i just wanted to give you thanks for coming up with something so well-written, and for being obviously such a devoted fan. i used to be a devoted fan too. up until a few months ago criminal minds was my #1, i ate slept and breathed it. it was the reason i joined tumblr. then this season just fucking lost me. i quit watching… lets see, the last episode i actually watched was 13, snake eyes. that was just so fucking godawful. i hate episodes that are “gimmicky,” like ooooooh, this ones in a CASINO. ooh, gambling addiction. couldnt. care. less. and it was so much like ‘the bittersweet science’ from just a few episodes before, a nice, sympathetic guy, in over his head, snaps and keeps killing people to improve his luck. SERIOUSLY. thats a bad idea to start out with but to do it twice within FOUR EPISODES is downright retarded.

a lot of people have talked about how the episodes are so unsub-centric now, which would be okay if they were great unsubs, for example i really liked ‘theres no place like home,’ it was complex and weird. there were a few okay episodes earlier in the season but the stinkers in this season have been so terrible im afraid to watch each new episode that comes out fearing it’ll be cringeworthy. i stuck it out to get to ‘true genius’ because it was a reid episode but thats it, im done. cant even bring myself to watch 14 or 15 which i downloaded. and i was actually a little disappointed they got renewed for season 8. i really thought it was time to call it quits. i dont want to see the show embarrass itself any further.

with the power of a thousand gods of old, morgan (a man) threw reid (another man) down onto the bed and proceeded to love!fuck him into multiple earth-moving orgasms. using his penis. his big stiff man-penis. that penetrated the man-butt of another dude. they also kissed with their dude-mouths and ran their guy-hands all over each other’s bro-bodies. also semen happened and so did other really gay man stuff like cuddling and reverse cowboy and spanking.

581. submitted by anonymous.

Uh, yeah, because homosexuality is totes equivalent to paedophilia. Because sexual assault victims should never enjoy sex again. Would you say this if he were female? No, you wouldn’t, because it’s ridiculous.

I said it last night, I’ll say it again: This fandom is so stupid it makes me want to cry sometimes.

I wish I knew who submitted this so I could pre-emptively block them. I don’t need this particular breed of stupid on my dash.

that is so FUCKING INSULTING its not even funny. please, bring your face over here so i can punch it.

i mean sure there are people for whom this is true. i know one. i dated someone who couldnt do certain things in bed because of things he experienced. that happens. but its not like a RULE. the fact that you somehow feel that its innately WRONG for someone whos been abused by a man to want to have sex with men later in life means you are talking out of your ASS my friend, and being insulting and homophobic while youre at it. 

i can safely say based on my experience with people who’ve been abused or assaulted [and that would be the majority of guys and some of the girls ive slept with— draw whatever conclusions about me from that that you will] that you cant make any kind of blanket statement about how people are going to react to such an experience. its kind of rude to do so. dont tell someone how to fucking feel.
