What do you think? Are you a fan of Criminal Minds? How long do you think this series should run?
I hope they are still on next season the show is really great
I love this show. Keep it going this is a classic I love this show espically an and Brewster. Montega is awesome also. Please keep it going
Criiminal Minds is one if my favorite crime shows. I truly don’t want it canceled. I do like the new Criminal Minds Beyond Borders, but why cant Criminal Minds still be shown? Several of my friends like it, too. I even watch the reruns w gusto.
Are they bringing back Thomas Gibson? If not, I’m not watching it. This is like replacing jack lord on Hawaii 5 o 0. He couldn’t be replaced by anybody. And no, I do not watch the new Hawaii 5 0… Jack lord can’t be there and I don’t like the new one either
Criminal Minds Cast (all seasons 1-12) Stand united in Solidarity to Force CBS/ABC to Fully REINSTATE Thomas Gibson aka SS A Hotchner…..just walk off the set…what’s next firing Dr. Reid? Penelope?Jo Mantegna? what are they going to do…kill everyone off? Please make a clear statement…for the truly loyal & faithful FANS…we are powerless to MAKE A UNITED STATEMENT…but you can CM Cast do this for US. PLEASE stand up for a fellow actor/ Leader of CM cast. Thank you. I say fire the producer that caused this FIASCO!
