    In my opinion, “Criminal Minds” is doing great for a show 9 seasons in. It continues to impress me because this season, so far, is a lot better than the past two seasons.
    Last night’s episode really reminded me of past episodes. Not as good as “Final Shot,” but still a really solid episode and definitely one of the best episodes out of the past few seasons.

    “CSI” was really good as well, but I kind of predicted some of the things that were going to happen. But then there were times when it surprised me.

    Criminal Minds this season seriously sucks.
    So the largest audience cannot reach the middle of the last season.
    Don’t make me laugh, boring criminal minds fans.
    Or ugly muscle gay fans.
    It’s better watching some animal planet than watching silly one’s door kicking show.
    Just EW,
