  • As someone who only recently started watching the show I think that Seaver is an interesting character and that there is plenty on potential for her. Also the actress is good. In my opinion many long term fans of the show only dislike her because she ‘replaced’ 2 characters which they really liked. Give the girl a chance and judge her on her own merits.

  • Well now, that is real good news, I was getting a little tired of the shows direction without JJ in it……..We hope you give JJ a little more time as a field agent, her good insight in solving crimes not necessarily as a profiler, but we like her role she had before, just added involvement especially without Prentiss and I don’t think we need Seaver now with JJ back……….

  • Welcome back JJ! Now all we need is to bring back Prentiss, make sure all the rest of the regular cast stay and get rid of the waste of space and annoying character that is Seaver and all is well again in CM. They totally ruined the show this season getting rid of JJ and Prentiss and bringing in Seaver… Maybe now the network is finally starting to listen? We shall see…
