Criminal Minds, for those who may not be aware of the show, focuses on a elite squad of FBI profilers that deal with the most difficult criminal cases. The show follows the squad as they must use their skill and expertise in their field to determine the next move of the criminal before they can strike again. All members bring a different element to the team to help pinpoint the predator and identify any emotional triggers to stop them. The group includes a official profiler who is skilled at understand the mind of the criminal, a media liaison, a quirky genius, and a computer wizard.
In early August of 2016, star actor from the show Thomas Gibson, who played investigator Aaron Hotchner, was dismissed from the show due to some differences between him and the producer. We later found that the actor kicked the produce due to creative differences. Unfortunately Criminal Minds didn’t take the only hit by losing Thomas Gibson because Shemar Moore, who played Derek Morgan decided his time with Criminal Minds needed to come to an end. My question is…Will the loss of these major stars cause a viewers to become uninterested with the show?
Personally, I find that the dynamic of the show will change completely. I have grown to love the show for the way in which the group works together and the personalities of all the characters work as a group. I am unsure if I can fully enjoy the show as I did before.
