Criminal Minds: So I am pretty well caught up through the end of the current season, so I decided to drop back on Netflix and watch Season 1, Episode 1: "Extreme Aggressor."
I have a difficult relationship with Criminal Minds. I will watch it for a while, then get freaked out, then go back to it later. I have watched much of it already, but the old stuff was a long time ago, so there are pieces I remember and pieces I don't.
Immediate thoughts on the first episode: I didn't realize Morgan didn't trust Gideon at first. He is very negative. (He also quotes Yoda). Reid is really geeky, more so than usual. It was odd to see all men from the team going into the FBI office at first.
I didn't realize just how central Gideon's character was from Day One. It must have been hard for the writers to make the adjustment.
I also noticed the use of music right up front. This is the first show I really noticed the effective use of music.
It will be interesting to watch Penelope develop.
This is the first time I have watched something on Netflix. I love not having commercials.
Binging through Season 1, Episode 3 now. Love the focus on Gideon. I do love having watched the show before, because you can anticipate some of the clues, etc.
Addendum: Through Season 1, Episode 6 now. All in one day. Definitely changes the way your brain processes information.
