Another Way to Look At It
26 January 2012 | by malagutigrrl-103-578446See all my reviews

As a fan of the original Criminal Minds, I found this on Netflix instant streaming and decided to give it a try since (for various reasons) I cannot currently watch Criminal Minds. I like Janeane Garofalo and Kristin Vangsness so figured there was nothing to lose.

All in all it was a good show. I have not yet watched the rest of the season, although I intend to. I'm giving this episode only a 7 because I thought it was a little stiff (and I'm not used to Garofalo not being funny --albeit very good in a serious role). I think my main problem here is that I'm craving a show that I'm now trying to substitute and I don't know these characters yet so it doesn't feel quite right to me. Thankfully, Penelope Garcia was there to save the day in that regard. She popped up at just the right moments.

And while I grew bored with Forest Whitaker's furrowed brow throughout (I felt he was trying too hard), it was very nice to see him smile (more than once) in this episode... something his Criminal Minds counterpart, Thomas Gibson, never does.

And that's another way to look at it.
