What started with taking Brenda's tender flower and then hit new depths with that doomed jaunt to Mexico (behind Jim and Cindy's backs, no less!) now has apparently spiraled into full-on crime. Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Luke Perry has been booked for a guest-star gig on CBS' Criminal Minds this season, filling the "very dark" role of a baddie. A spokesperson for the Eye confirms that Perry will appear in one episode, airing toward the beginning of the season.What's your take? Think Luke can bring the ominous and sinister just as well as Frankie Muniz? Was that question rhetorical? — Matt Mitovich read more

Please tell me we haven't seen the last of David Anders as Adam Monroe on Heroes. — StacieMatt Mitovich: No, Heroes fans have not seen the last of Anders. And that's the truth. (Now would you be so kind as to tell my sons that good things come to those who say please?)Newly converted "vitch" here. Think you could dig up some scoop on Bones or Criminal Minds for me? — LaurenMitovich: "Vitch"? Really? Hmm. There's Bones buzz in the new Mega Minute vodcast. As for Minds, remember the SUV that went kablooey in the finale? It belonged to a main character, and he will emerge "impaired" as a result. Have you heard anything about when BSG will return with the final episodes? – AnnaMitovich: The bad news: No sooner than January 2009, Ron Moore told us just last week. The good news: There is talk of getting a "bonus" 11th hour in that batch. A Sci Fi rep deftly responds, "As written by Ron, the phenomenal finale script extends beyond the time allotted for the episode. We're ex... read more

After seeing that explosive ...

Question: After seeing that explosive finale for Criminal Minds, I have to ask: Is someone leaving the show?


Answer: I'm guessing not. When asked who got blown up in the episodes final seconds, exec producer Ed Bernero said in this week's issue of TV Guide, "The person who's injured is the right person to have been injured, and it will all make sense when you see the rest of this story." Notice how he said injured and not killed? Notice also how I repurposed a fairly innocuous quote from the magazine to distract you from the fact that I really don't have an answer to your question? I'm sneaky like that.

Cheers: You Do Know Jack!

Cheers to Jack McGee for resuscitating his career post-Rescue Me. The fireplug character actor killed himself as Chief Jerry Reilly on FX's drama — then committed potential career suicide by publicly trashing costar-cocreator Denis Leary for the plot twist. Yet McGee has continued working steadily with guest shots on CSI, CSI: Miami and now Criminal Minds' season finale. As a hard-nosed NYPD detective, the real-life FDNY vet proved he's equally adept at playing New York's Finest as well as New York's Bravest. He's truly a Jack of all trades.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on TVGuide.com or in TV Guide magazine! read more

Please tell me why anyone ...

Question: Please tell me why anyone involved with Criminal Minds or CBS would find it appropriate to air an episode about a teenage killer on a murderous rampage ("Elephant's Memory," April 16) on the first anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre! I find this deeply insensitive and offensive. I know you have previously addressed the gratuitous violence and gore on this show, but are you surprised a network or show (I don't know who is at fault for something like this) would stoop so low? Shame on them for pouring salt in the wounds of grieving families, and God bless all those affected by the tragedy at Virginia Tech! Answer: Nothing ever shocks me anymore where Criminal Minds is concerned, except for the high number of people who tune in each week, seemingly immune to its heinous mediocrity. Given the sensitivities surrounding the anniversary of that tragedy, I am somewhat surprised that CBS didn't either pull the episode or even the show for that week. But am I truly shocked ... read more

Premise: A procedural thriller about the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit, which profiles criminals to solve crimes. The ensemble drama relies on the diversity of the team, which includes a young genius and a seasoned leader tortured by a past case. Unlike other crime dramas that focus on science, this series is very cerebral and almost Holmesian in its deductive analysis of the crimes and their perpetrators.
