Another season, another batch of Amazon pilots – it's the gift that keeps on giving. In the spirit of a true democracy (feel free to add your own cynical popular-vote joke here), the streaming service will offer up a number of first episodes for maybe-possibly future shows. The audience gets to decide what series should get full orders. You may get the next Transparent; you may get a burning pile of trash. Regardless, it's the viewer who gives these would-be TV classics the thumbs up, thumbs down, or sideways-thumbs-across-the-throat gesture. You »
The Bau headed to New York City to solve another freaky case.
But the ghost of Spencer Reid hung over Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 16.
The case of the week was yet another misogynistic sadist taking out his issues on the women he abducted.
Yeah, I know. Women are more than half the population, but they end up being 90% of the victims on Criminal Minds, especially when torture is involved. It's getting more than a little old.

Following her stellar performance as Bette Davis on FX’s Feud, Oscar winner Susan Sarandon will be making another trip into the world of TV. The iconic actress has signed on to join the cast of Showtime’s hit series Ray Donovan for its forthcoming fifth season.
