(and job hunt and write, but that's for a different post)
You know, I caught the first episode of "Criminal Minds", and thought 'eh, whatever'. Then my f'list started getting excited about it, posting recaps and reviews. So I gave it another try.
Now I'm addicted, and I don't even know half of the backstory, which is apparently hugely important in this show, if you get all fannish.
And boy, am I ever.
First of all - ensemble cast FTW! Interesting characters, fully half of which are competent females.
Smarter than average TV crime work.
Use of the term "unsub". I only had seen it before in the Hannibal Lector books, and it's now highly fun, much better than CSI using 'suspect'. Pshaw, I say.
I can tell I'm going to love/hate the new lead character. I like this. Now I just need the backstory so I can understand all the Gideon!love.
I love Hotch with a great and terrible introvert love.
Shemar is the most beautiful man ever. No wonder he was on soap operas. All must swoon over him.
Garcia has awesome lines, though I wish she weren't quite so aggressively "alternative/punk/geek".
I can tell that this show is going to fit most of my tv kinks really well. If only it had sci-fi in it, it would be perfect.
But then, it wouldn't be this show.
I need CM icons. Seriously.
