Hi! I've just seen the 19th ep of this season and I think they also dumbed down Morgan a bit. If I remember correctly, he used to be the one "going inside the mind of the uinsub" but in that episode, he didn't figure immediately that it was a team and not a solo act? JJ had to explaine it to him? really? I don't buy it. He used to go to the scene to like "relive" the crime right? anyway, sorry for this rant.

Oh, I completely agree with you.

I admit that I can no longer be objective because whenever I see JJ I just want to throttle her. I am so sick of her. They ruined her character. I used to really like her and now she’s just completely different and I don’t like her at all.

When I was watching the episode it didn’t sit well with me that junior profiler JJ was having to explain something rather obvious to seasoned profiler Morgan.

It’s sad that even though Morgan is Erica Messer’s favorite male character, he gets dumbed down. In a lot of her episodes she writes him as angry and unprofessional.

Hi! I've see your recent posts and I couldn't agree more about your comments. I've noticed the changes in the characters. Like the time that Reid seems so dumb not knowing certain things that I believe he should know. Also, when they are giving the profile, he only states the obvious things or may throw some facts here and there. His expertise in the past seasons seemed lost in the more recent seasons. I missed the awkward and smart Reid that I loved the first time.

Yeah. It’s frustrating. They are so inconsistent with him. In the beginning he was socially awkward/shy and somewhat inexperienced, but he was knowledgeable and able to figure things out. He was observant and very responsible, even if he had some habits that made him seem child-like (like spinning in chairs and sitting on tables— which I’ve noticed more adults do nowadays). He had to be responsible at such a young age so he was sort of robbed of his childhood, but the writers don’t seem to want to remember that. They try to have him act childish and clueless. They ignore the character growth over the seasons.

I don’t want him to be a completely different character— like they did with JJ— but despite the fact that I was initially drawn to the way Reid was in the beginning, I think it made sense for him to mature. If he had just stagnated it would have gotten old.

I wish the writers could find that balance between the character that he used to be and the character that he grew to be instead of randomly having him be clueless or silly.

They have done a disservice to all of the characters really. The show has a much less mature vibe now— but then, I get a less mature vibe from the writers. It’s sad.

Agree

I agree with that but I think the writers are leading up to something for him which is scaring me because you know he’s not acting like himself

But I don’t think they are. I think they just don’t “get” his character. People have been saying that Erica Messer admitted to not liking Reid in some interview. I’ve never found the interview or the quotes so maybe it was misconstrued, but it is very clear that Reid is not her favorite.

If they were doing something as part of a big story for him, it would be interesting, but the writers can’t keep their mouths shut about things very well. Erica Messer is the worst at blabbing spoilers. The writers have said there is nothing in store for Reid. 

They just don’t know what to do with him.

It’s just sad. I wish Andrew Wilder would come back to the show.

Spencer Reid in 9.19 The Edge of Winter

A series of targeted kidnappings near Memphis have the BAU searching for a commonality between the missing persons and a motive to lead to the UnSub. Meanwhile, Savannah vents her frustration to Morgan about the amount of traveling he does for his job.

Ugh… Can’t they give any of the male characters a love interest that doesn’t gripe about how much they travel? I wish female love interests weren’t either fridged, Mary Sues, or whiners. I hope it isn’t really that big of a part of the episode.

Hi - you asked where the Loki pic on my post (post/79592650188/lokiday) came from - it's a screencap from the featurette on the Thor the Dark World bluray. It's not photoshopped other than to crop and improve the contrast. :-)

Thank you.

I’m reblogging this publicly so I will remember it later.

Pretty rare for Reid to be the one doing this, but I like it.

I’ll have to re-watch the episode and fastforward through all of the JJ parts to see if I like it or not. I was distracted while watching.
