Extreme By Design sneak preview (Thanks to exonev)
A documentary about students building a better world, one product at a time…PBS national broadcast is Wed., Dec. 11, 2013 @ 10 pm (after NOVA).
At a time of unprecedented global challenges, the under-30 “millennial” generation has reason to be disengaged. Yet in fields ranging from public health to education, plenty of millennials are engaged. Call it the empathy revolution.
Extreme By Design brings this revolution vividly to life following three Stanford University students as they design products that address basic needs of the poor. One student’s team must create a breathing device to keep babies in Bangladesh from dying of pneumonia. Another seeks a way to store drinking water for Indonesian villagers.
The narrative begins on the first day of a course called Design for Extreme Affordability and ends eight months later with one group of students returning to Asia to test their device amid plans to launch a startup.
The documentary of this great idea will be available on Itunes on December 3 and on PBS on December 11 and the narration of the voiceover is in charge of nothing less than Matthew Gray Gubler. Learn more
I hate hearing people say that they hate how certain characters, especially JJ, have “changed”. They are playing real people on the show. In life, people change. I’m glad all of the Criminal Minds characters have changed over time. It’s nice to see they’re like real people and not static characters.
Well, while I understand that it bothers the person who posted this confession, I have to disagree to an extent.
Yes, people do change, but they generally don’t become entirely different people in a short amount of time. AJ and the writers admitted that JJ is a completely different character than she used to be. She’s basically got the same name and actress, but has a different personality, skillset, attitude, etc.
I’ve never seen someone change personalities entirely in one year. These changes tend to happen gradually. There are times when something happens to someone that effects a change, but it generally doesn’t change who they are at their core— and that is what happened to JJ.
The powers that be just decided that the old character wasn’t good enough and wrote a new one that they think is better, but that to me is much more shallow and much less “real” than the original JJ. It’s like taking a nonpowered superhero in the comic books, changing their attitude/behavior entirely, and then giving them superpowers. They have made her less interesting and less relatable, IMO.
It really is sad because I was one of the ones who rallied to get JJ/AJ back, but I did so wanting the JJ that I had come to like back. This new JJ is too hokey and fake to me.

This pretty much sums up the entirety of his appearances in this episode. He wasn’t used much. Neither was Blake.
This on didn’t really utilize the characters very well.
Was this in a restaurant?

Sometimes I see him squinting and wonder if its because he’s not wearing contacts and had to take his glasses off.
