Criminal Minds: Anyone have any thoughts about Paget Brewster as Emily Prentiss on Criminal Minds? :)

I do.
I'll admit at first I didn't like her at all. But she's really good. I like her now. Of course no one tops A.J. but Paget seems cool.

Jaclyn said...

I didn't like her at first either, not because I had anything against Prentiss, but I liked Elle too much and didn't want anyone replacing her. I really love Prentiss now. I love her dynamic with Reid especially. Since Honor Among Thieves wasn't exactly the greatest episode, I really hope they do more, and soon, to let us in on Prentiss' life.

Lin said...

She's definitely growing on me. I think that Paget has done a fine job of portraying a character in the middle of a very difficult transition. It wasn't an easy introduction for either one of them.

What does the mug say? Inquiring minds want to know!!!

I liked her from the beginning and couldn't believe how negative everyone was toward her. Comparing Paget to Lola is apples to oranges. Paget is just fine. So was Lola.

I like her. I wasn't too sure at first but she brought something that none of the others have, I just can't put my finger on it. I really like how different each one is from the other but they work off each other so well. I really like her now.

I hate to admit that I didn't even care when Elle left and Emily came. I wasn't invested in the first or interested in the second but I will say that I do like Emily much more now since she has taken a more relaxed place in the group.

I really like Prentiss now. Took me a long time!

sindee said...

I haven't seen much of her yet, but must say I do like her.
She might had a controversial entry, but I liked her (re)acting in the second ep.

She won my vote from Day 1..!!! Something about her brought a refreshing brightness to the team. She is pretty, talented, and something about her shines. My husband noticed the same qualities.

I loved her working closely with Hotch (he's my very favorite!) in a recent episode. Seemed to do great together.

I never warmed to Elle as many episodes as I saw her in.

I HOPE EMILY/PAGET GETS THE MESSAGE THAT THERE ARE FANS OUT HER LIKE MYSELF HAPPY THAT SHE IS A PART OF THE GREAT "BAU TEAM"...!!

Please excuse my typing errors in previous message...pushing a rush job to FedEx, I HAVE NOT HAD MY COFFEE YET! (Nothing works right before that).

wren said...

I have been a hold out because I was not impressed at all with the Prentiss in the first few episodes. I hated that Hotch had her thrown down his throat. As the team has accepted her so have I. If you can't beat em them bop them in the head with some physics magic and move on.

I feel bad because I got my picture of Paget and forgot to send you an email thanking you and Sindee even sent you a picture. This will be corrected tonight when my boyfriend comes home and can snap a pic. Thank you and Paget is awesome. Loved her on the show from day one.

Love Prentiss!

Paget has done a wonderful job portraying a character that was not necessarily popular or wanted. Like most of you, I like Emily a lot better now that she is relaxing a bit more around everyone. The writers have done a good job with her character and Paget has portrayed her to perfection.

If you want to see a completely different side to Paget, see if you can see an airing of My Big Fat Independent Movie. I caught it last night at 3 a.m. (couldn't sleep) on the Sundance Channel. The movie was very strange, but funny.

alexis said...

I have really learned to like her character. Emily is very different then Elle but actually Emily is more knowledgeable.

Elizabeth said...

I will own up to really not liking the character when she first appeared.

But she is now starting to grow on me and it was her standing up to Reid and snapping back at him that turned it around for me.

I started liking her the minute she stopped saying SIR every five seconds.

respectanimals said...

I found Emily's initial ingratiating manner very annoying and unappealing, so it took me a while to warm up to her. I really like her now though. She seems like she feels more confident with the team now. I just wish she would have put Reid in his place, for being so rude to her, but I'm guessing her family's background has taught her to be more diplomatic than that.

I was also disappointed with the episode of Honor Among Thieves. It was in essence her episode, but I not only thought there were too many holes in the story itself, I still don't feel like I know much about her character, other than who her mother is.

I loved the scene in the Ashes and Dust episode where Reid withholds a statistic from everyone and when Emily asks him about it, he states that he was trying to be more conversational. She responds with "Oh...It's not working." I loved that!

myrna said...

She has won me over.

Jan said...

I was a big Elle fan and was so upset by the way her exit was handled (although I have since recovered) that I wouldn't have been happy with any replacement. Now that I've gotten used to Prentiss, she's really growing on me, and I think Paget is terrific.

dennie said...

The fact that Emily has not been completely center screen in the last few new episodes has helped me to like her much better. I now think of her as part of the unit.

edwina said...

I always liked her and I really think she has blended in now completely with the rest of the BAU.

kimmie said...

It took some time with me and I am still not at 100% but I have warmed enough to melt the ice.

cedrine said...

She has come a long way in a really short time. Good work Paget!

vera said...

I like her very much.

malik said...

I am worming my way there. By next season I should be bouncy.

Still trying, sorry.

connie said...

I like Emily. I think she just needed a few episodes to blend into the BAU unit.

shannon said...

I think that the last two new ones made me realize that I don't think of her as a stranger anymore. So I guess I have accepted her.

sam said...

I really like Emily Prentiss but I was not an Elle lover so it was easy for me to make the switch.

genie said...

It took me about three episodes to start to warm to her. Now I don't even think about it when watching an episode so I guess I just have assimilated her into the bau.

marcus said...

I had no opinion of her one way or another for the first few episodes. Of course she was only in a couple of minutes of her first one so that is not fair to judge. I like her better now.

mila said...

I am actually liking her now. When did that happen to me? Sort of crept up on me.

I liked Elle and was sad to see her go, but i love emily, she has become one of my favourites. Paget has done a perfect job portraying her.
