Criminal Minds Season 13 Finale Review: Humdinger of a Mystery

Well, at least the Criminal Minds braintrustmade a strong pitch for a Season 14, even though it was an uninspired idea, undoubtedly from CBS, to force together two disconnected episodes into a finale "event." Still, the range of this series was showcased on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 21 and Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 22 . First, let's drill down on the case featuring the Taos Hum, which I can't get out of my head.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/criminal-minds-season-13-finale-review-humdinger-of-a-mystery/

Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 20 Review: All You Can Eat

Ok, that was subtle. Two extremely different methods of handling grief were examined on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 20 . I liked Garcia's eventual epiphany that forgiveness was the least destructive path. The unsub, Mark Henshaw, took an entirely different approach, poisoning the business community that he saw as having rejected his parents' restaurant.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/criminal-minds-season-13-episode-20-review-all-you-can-eat/

Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 19 Review: Ex Parte

Welcome, Matt, to the BAU. After most of the season has passed, Matt Simmons finally got his spotlight episode on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 19 . Simmons came over to the BAUas a refugee from the FBI's International Response Team, featured on Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders , the better of Criminal Minds' two short-lived spinoffs. That series always felt to me akin to Law & Order: Los Angeles, full of darkness offset by a good deal of light. That must have been because of the colorful locations and the positivity projected by Gary Sinese'sUnit Chief Jack Garrett.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/criminal-minds-season-13-episode-19-review-ex-parte/

Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 18 Review: The Dance of Love

This almost felt like a Criminal Minds' take on a Valentine's Day episode, pushed unnaturally back by the Olympic hiatus. That, and the whole Barnes fiasco. Two tales of love gone wrong were featured on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 18 . Let's start with the midnight callers being murdered by one twisted Romeo. Or Juliet, as the unsub ended up being.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/criminal-minds-season-13-episode-18-review-the-dance-of-love/

Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 17 Review: The Capilanos

You can't always escape your past. The sins of the father ended up ruining his sons' lives on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 17 . The best part about this episode: No Barnes. We're done with that mistake of a storyline. Instead, it was just a case of the week, with a side of social commentary. This episode was a sad statement about another American industry fading away, in this case, the circus.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/criminal-minds-season-13-episode-17-review-the-capilanos/

Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 16 Review: Last Gasp

Thank God that's over. The Linda Barnes invasion was quickly ended on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 16 . And to think the BAU accomplished that by following Barnes' own advice. Her mission was good optics, finding cases that would make the BAU, and by extension her, look good. That worked only too well. The BAU saved a senator's daughter, then got his official sanction to get the band back together. Prentissused that leverage to get everyone reassigned or rehired, while managing to put Barnes in the doghouse at the same time.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/criminal-minds-season-13-episode-16-review-last-gasp/

Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 15 Review: Annihilator

She's got to go. The BAU is facing a villain unlike any they have faced before on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 15 .   No, I'm not talking about that little pissant they dispatched in an airport parking garage. Again, the case of the week proves secondary to everything else that's going on. I'm talking about Linda Barnes, and the BAU has never had to deal with such a self-promoting bureaucrat before.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/criminal-minds-season-13-episode-15-review-annihilator/
