They are going serialized as I mentioned previously in this thread.

But yeah Erica Messer, the showrunner, said they aren't going to have the actors do anything out of character.

While I would pass on the Joe Mantegna full frontal, I wouldn't mind something from AJ Cook. Even a little full backal nudity wouldn't go unappreciated.

Since I stopped watching 9 years ago, I was a little shocked how old Joe Mantegna looks.

Cast previews season 16. It’s funny hearing Rossi say Bullshit and Fuck! Premieres tonight at 12am PT. 2 episodes drop. I’m glad they are using the streaming format to be more realistic with the language and violence.

I finally got to see the trailer. Damn that looks badass. The look of the show is totally different. Has a more gritty feel.

Re: Criminal Minds (Moving to Paramount +)

Just watched the first episode. It’s 1am and I’m pretty exhausted.

First of all, it’s TV MA and it’s definitely darker and gritty. More blood was shown than probably Network TV allows. Also it’s in 4K, HDR with Dolby Atmos. Very cool for it to get this presentation now that it’s on streaming.

Rossi was cursing like a sailor, but understandable due to his circumstances. If you missed season 15, he re-married one of his many exes Gail O’Grady (Crystal) and as he said here she apparently died. This season takes place now in 2022, so the final season took place in 2019 as they kept mentioning 3 years have passed. And they wrote out Reid and Simmons with one line of dialogue.

Loved how Alvez got back Garcia to help. He will never have the dynamic she had with Morgan. The case with the network of killers is pretty interesting.

This felt like a Criminal Minds the TV MA cable reboot. I’m glad streaming is allowing them to be darker and edgier than the CBS version.

I’ll watch episode 2 later today.

The trailer got 4.3M views. I think there’s a lot of interest in this and it will do well for Paramount plus.

Re: Criminal Minds (Moving to Paramount +)

I've finished both episodes. Definitely darker than past seasons. But, I dig it. If you're going to bring back this show, especially with no FCC regulations or censors, you gotta take more chances creatively. Glad they finally got Garcia back in the mix. I when Rossi asked her after she came back, do you need my log-in and password? And the computer said it had been 1,099 days since her last log-in. I'm surprised the FBI kept her account active.

Sad when they revealed that Rossi's wife died from cancer during the pandemic. That explains his volatile behavior. I love hearing Mantegna curse though.

Of course Prentiss is stuck dealing with an asshole budget cutting suck up bureaucrat at the FBI.

From what I've heard, the best bet for nudity is probably Kirsten Vangsness. She's done quite a bit of nudity on stage, so she might go for it.

I saw a still of him on a website and I thought it was Tommy Chong.

Joe Mantegna looks so old now. Crazy.

It was good. The tone of the show feels different, as does the look of it. I really hope they get a few cameos for this. I bet why the line of "special assignment" was used. Would be amazing even if we got a Shemar Moore cameo, but I doubt that will happen.

Re: Criminal Minds (Moving to Paramount +)

My sister just finished binge watching Criminal Minds (the CBS version) all 15 seasons and 334 episodes over 2 months!! She became a huge fan. I know for most of you here that would be a very daunting and next to impossible task. Even though it's a new and darker version, I know a lot here quit the show or didn't follow it regularly, so jumping right in on season 16 doesn't sound very appealing to try to add to your backlog. So I don't expect a lot of commentary here. But, it's off to a promising start.
