In a few episodes, Forest Whitaker is seen training in Filipino Kali. Mentioned by Prophet that he's been training in Kali for over 10 years. Forest Whitaker has been training in the art for a long time, under Bruce Lee's number 1 student, Dan Inosanto. See more »
I liked the first episode somewhat mostly because I already had it my mind that I would like the show. When the this team first appeared on the original Criminal Minds I liked them very much and thought "boy, I would like to see more of them" so it seemed like my wish was granted. Maybe I liked them so much on the original show because I enjoyed the interaction of the two teams, especially Prentiss and Mick.
After watching the first 5 episodes I just can't take it anymore. Forest Whitaker always seems distracted-like he's daydreaming-not focusing on the case at hand. I do like him as an actor-thought he was excellent in "The Shield"-a really nasty piece of work character and also in "Species" as the empath. However, the writers haven't fleshed out the characters quickly enough. Nothing to make the viewers like or care about them.
The detective work is shoddy. I found myself creating a better profile quicker than they did. Too bad, I really did want to like it, two hours of quality Criminal Minds would have been awesome.
