    Criminal Minds

    • Stormy says:

      Bones already did a spin on the Hatfields & McCoys. And the History channel did a mini series on it. Out of ideas CM?

      • Ann says:

        So? Bones did that about 3 seasons ago, and the History Channel did H&M over two years ago. CM isn’t the only show that has done this, and it’ll probably be done again.

        • Stormy says:

          I repeat: Out of ideas?

          • Angela says:

            If you’re going to say that of this show then you’ll need to say that of ANY show nowadays-everything has been done by somebody somewhere before, including the shows you watch. It’s all in how people take an old idea and put their own spin on it, which these guys may well do.
            Anyway, I’m personally looking forward to this, in part because of who’s directing it. Though if what I hear about its creepiness is any indication, I may want to keep the lights on!
