Criminal Minds Dates

Well, after this last ep of CM there was some discussion of on inconsistency in Rossi's timeline.

Mainly that he and Hotch worked the school shooting/bombing 10 years ago (2001). [Painless; S7E4]

Well, it doesn't jive with the first ep Rossi was introduced in [About Face; S3E6]. Back in season 3, Erin Strauss noted that Rossi was out of the FBI for 10 years. An episode later [Identity; S3E7], Rossi himself notes that he was 52 years old.

So, in season 3, Rossi was 52 and had been out of the FBI since we was 42 (1997).

It is now 4 years later (2011), and Rossi is 56... so ten years ago he was 46 when the Idaho incident took place.

Here lies the issue; it's hard to be both 42 and 46 at the same time; also he supposedly left in 1997 but Idaho happened in 2001. Easily fixed if this was the 15 year anniversary. Since, really, why does 10 years have to be the whole 'big year' - why not at the 5 year anniversary? Just saying, it’s random and 15 would have not messed with the internal chronology of the series.

Rossi also mentions in season 3 [About Face; S3E6] that he was 'doing this before you (Hotch) were in high school; before they (the other agents) were in school at all" - so Rossi is, say, 10 years older than Hotch? Therefore in season 3 Hotch was 42. So, the series started when he was 39 (in 2005). Remember, Hotch also spent time as a federal prosecutor and also worked for Ambassador Prentiss while Emily was either in high school or maybe college.

Now, Emily we know: Her grave listed October 12, 1970 as a DoB (can’t see why they would fib about that)[S6E18]. So in season 2 (2006) she would be just turning 36. Season 7 would have her turning 41. So Hotch is 5 years older than Emily.

Other time line issues:
In Tabula Rasa [S3E19], we see the initial meeting of Garcia via flashbacks to 2004. She even mentions that the Blue Ridge Strangler case was “4 years ago”. Hotch also introduces Reid to a local detective as “our newest agent” during this ep. It is also noted in this ep, that Emily graduated from Garfield High class of 1989 (and was very into goth). Possible inconsistency: there is a Garfield High in Woodbridge, VA but that town is about 30 miles south of McLean (the Ambassador’s residence during Honor Among Thieves S2E20). Granted, the family could have moved, but Woodbridge is rather out of the way for an Ambassador heading into DC regularly.

So, I evidently have too much time on my hands.

Criminal Minds - the issues...

watching:
Criminal Minds
And I'm not talking fringe - that's a whole other issue that others have already covered.

==================
Sex, Birth, Death
Season 2, Episode 11 Originally aired: November 29, 2006

A vigilante starts killing prostitutes when he feels that his efforts to clean up the city and get the prostitutes off the streets aren't being appreciated. Meanwhile, a young man who is having thoughts about stabbing women seeks out Reid to help him understand his thoughts and fix them.

==============

For how good these writers are at character continuity they are definitely sucking at DC geography. I hope it's on purpose.

1. Kid approaches Reid at a Metro stop - the closest one to Quantico is 22+ miles north - unless Reid lives on a line (near Georgetown, maybe?) and then buses it from the end of the Blue Line to the office? Makes little sense.

2. JJ brings the team up to speed on the murders in the district saying: one of the 3 main prostitute strolls is McPherson Square (north of the White House) then immediately saying, the pros work around Capital Hill to hit the AM guys going to work. We're talking places a mile apart...

3. Hotch gives an ASAP press conference. Requests the conference from their office but gives it in front of the Capital. Plus then the Senator shows up supposedly straight off the Hill, but isn't their offices at Quantico?

Anyway, sometimes too much knowledge is a bad thing...

I cave

anyone have any idea how to get rid of this...



AVG has been yapping all day - these files listed, I'm assuming, are created by the truly evil file as deleting/cleansing/cleaning/vaulting these have done ZERO good



any ideas?

A friend forwarded me a message that The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota (45,000 clicks) of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram' for free (pink window).

So, I figured if a few of us remembered to click when on-line it might help.
