    “Criminal Minds” is really picking up this season. Granted, the episodes are nowhere near as good as the first 6 seasons (well, they’re better than a handful of older episodes ["True Night," for starters]), this season is shaping up to be much better than last season; which was, in my opinion, a major disappointment and almost embarrassing.
    Even though the new girl on “Criminal Minds” seems a bit out-of-place, this season is so much better than last. Also, I don’t want to be too harsh on the new girl; she just joined and it’s going to take time to adjust.
    I’m surprised that no one’s mentioned that “Criminal Minds” had a season high in viewers.

    “CSI” is still CSI. Despite the cast changes over the years, it’s not that much different. Glad it’s still doing well, despite its age.
