CRIMINAL MINDS: PAGET'S NOT THE NEWBIE ANYMORE.


Criminal Minds: Paget Brewster, Emily Prentiss on Criminal Minds, is not the newest kid on the set anymore. When I first met Paget in Feb. she told me that it bothered her that the fans weren't warming to her character because she really likes "Emily". It took me awhile but I do now too. I found Paget to be an angel on the set. One of the nicest people I met. More about Paget later. :)

I had not thought about it but she really isn't the new kid on the block anymore since Joe joined the cast. I like her a lot.

love2teach said...

l like her. True I missed Elle, but she started off where she didnt seem nice, but now I can see she's great! I cant wait to see what happens this season and if she will be a "mole" and turn against Hotch. Certainly hope she doesnt!!!!!!!!!!!!1

b.j. said...

Yeah she better not turn on Hotch. lol.

eden said...

I bet she really had a hard time at first with fan reaction if she knew how bad it was on the net.

steven said...

She is a really beautiful woman. Tall and beautiful with a great face.

monica said...

I don't think that Prentiss will turn and work against Hotch. I think she is too smart for that and she likes the team.

I think PB is doing a really good job.

leslie said...

She could betray him thinking it will further her career but I think Hotchner is smarter than she is so it will be okay. I think the political background she grew up in and that she claims to dislike may have taught her not to play those kind of games. Just a thought.

danielle said...

Paget deserves lots of credit. I think they wrote her part in a way that we were not supposed to like Prentiss in the beginning. I think they were building angst and distrust at first. That has to be a hard part to play but I think in the end Emily will do the right thing and work with Hotch to bring the supervisor down.

henri said...

Paget is a great actress and I liked her all the time since she joined the cast. Very pretty lady.

ginger said...

Wow you are right. Never did give it any thought but now Paget has some senority over Joe. lol. She is a cool actress and Prentiss has grown on me.

Nay, she doesn't slam Hotch.

rachie said...

I think it is too early to say what Prentiss is going to do about Hotchner. She was surprised by the request. That much you could see was genuine but it was really too hard to figure out what she was thinking. It kinda happened so quickly. If she goes up against Hotchner I agree she will lose. He is way too smart for her and he has never fully trusted her. It should prove to be really interesting. I like Prentiss. She adds more depth to the show and she is tough and smart. Good job Paget.

Kris said...

I didn't get a chance to talk to her when I was on the set, but she did seem like a really nice person.

curtis said...

Paget really did walk into a poopy situation and she deserves lots of praise for the exc. job she has done. I don't think it is easy thing to join an already established show in the middle of the second season. I think it is one thing if your character is an additional but harder if you are the replacement. She's done very well.

gita said...

I liked her as the girlfriend on "Friends" but I love comedies and tend not to look as closely at the deepth of the character on them as I do on drama shows. Looking at the quality of the Prentiss character I really think Paget shines. She's great.

celeste said...

I don't think Emily will go along with some horrible plan to get Hotch fired. I don't think that is how her mind works. She seems happy on the BAU team.

Paget is doing well as Emily.

Kathrin said...

i was so sad when elle left but i really like emily (and it didnt took me that long) - and i really like paget as an actress :)

alice said...

Prentiss still makes me distrust her. Just enough to wonder what she is going to do. I guess that is great writing so cool. I like Paget but I identify her as Prentiss now so I hope she does the right thing. Fingers crossed for the answer in the new season.

simone said...

I loved how you told us she fixed MGG's chair by sewing in the Gray herself. Classy thing to do. She sounds really nice.

lynda said...

It is great that we had time to get used to Prentiss before the newest newbie hit the show. We know Prentiss now....I guess. I can't decide if I think she will go undercover to hurt Hotch.

jolie said...

Paget does deserve lots of praise. Hard job she had for sure. I agree with that. I really do.

anna said...

What I am unclear about is what benefit Hotchner being fired would give Prentiss. Is there an upside or her or is she being asked to pay up on a debt? Can't she ask her mom to help her this time? I'm looking forward to finding out the answers to my questions.

marina said...

Paget Brewster is a really talented professional. I hope that she is happy doing the show and stays for many seasons.

asher said...

We all just needed to give her a chance and then she became part of our team and now she is and that is very nice.

jen said...

Is it just me or since all hell broke loose doesn't it seem like Paget has handled herself very professionally. No negative comments and no snarks. I admire her loyalty to the show and frankly the fact that meeting her for two days turned you around so completely on her speaks volumes to me abotu her as a person. I remember you calling me from LA and talking all about how incredible she was to you and how much new found respect you had for her. I was in shock frankly. Never expected it. It was a wonderful thing.

lawrence said...

Very great job by Ms. Brewster in bringing all the different dimesions of Prentiss to the screen. Kudos.

tracy said...

Prentiss is going to do the moral thing for Hotch and Paget is wonderful.

lara said...

Her first episodes I loathed the character but now I appreciate her for her intelligence, her insecurities and her ability to give one hundred percent to the team. Well done by PB imho.

gerri said...

Bravo to Paget Brewster for moving the needle full circle with the fans of CM. Beautifully done.

Jacki said...

When I first interviewed Paget I was a little nervous because I couldn't decide if I had warmed to Prentiss or not. Paget Brewster ended up as the best interview I've ever had. She was the nicest, most genuine, and funny interview I've had to date. Most of my interviews last 20-30 minutes. I believe we were on the phone for almost an hour. She is wonderful, and I love Prentiss now, of course.

belinda montgomery said...

I actually met Paget a few years ago at a function in NY and I was extremely impressed by her open and friendly attitude towards the fans that were there. She spent her time signing autographs and being so lovely and open.

I think she really deserves great marks for her portrayal of Emily Prentiss. Criminal Minds is not the easiest subject matter and Prentiss is a complex character.

meaghan said...

1) I think Paget is awesome.

2) I don't think Prentiss with betray Hotchner or the team. I think she will turn on the witch and save the day.

3) I like Prentiss.

dana said...

She's doing very good work on the show.

agnes said...

I really like that Paget is getting more positive attention from CM fans. I didn't like her in the beginning but it was Prentiss I had a problem with. I liked Paget in some of her previous work. I think it is really nice and speaks very well about her acting ability that she has turned the tide around. I don't think Prentiss will try to hurt Hotchner.

cc said...

My opinion of Emily Prentiss will drastically change if she sells out AH. I mean it really would make me dislike the character horribly because she hasn't been with the team long but he gave her the chance and if she screws him then that would suck.

estelle said...

I like Paget and Prentiss.

Emily won't try to hurt the team!

june said...

Paget is great.

Jan and Quentin said...

I like Emily a lot now, although I was a little slow to warm up to her. Now I see her character as one of the strong, intelligent, compassionate career women we need more of in movies and TV. And I love how nuanced Paget's performance brings out Emily's complex personality and issues.

aimee said...

I have been won over to Prentiss' side. I like her now. I think she is tough as nails. Paget is a great actress and an asset to the show.

ashley said...

Sorry for posting in the wrong spot before. I meant to express that I really like Paget and I am glad that she joined the cast.

diana said...

I always knew Paget would win everyone over because she is a very talented actress and an asset to the show. I like her work. I don't think Prentiss will rollover on Hotch. I'm counting the days until the new season starts.

randa said...

I keep saying I am going to make more of an effort to see some of Paget's previous work but I really need to just do it already. I hear she has been very good in many of her previous works.

bethany said...

Prentiss might pretend to go along with the plot to get rid of Hotch but I think in the end she will have told Hotch what is going on. I think she is a team player.

rayna said...

I'm a Paget Brewster convert.

jersey girl said...

I'm not sure what direction Prentiss will swing in on the screw Hotch to the wall plan. Paget will certainly do a great job playing the part. I do think she just needed time to grow on some of us.

celina said...

Paget is very good as Prentiss but Prentiss sends mixed signals. I'm not completely sure she is as loyal as she should be.

mona said...

When I started watching the show Prentiss was already on the show so for me it was weird to buy the season one dvds and meet Elle. I think it is what you start out used to and then change that takes a minute to settle in. I love Prentiss but it took me several episodes to also appreciate Elle.

evie said...

She is really a real talented actress and very pretty. I'm so glad to read that she is also really nice. That is nice to know. Thanks.

sharon said...

Will she or won't she? I think she will go running to someone for advice before going to Hotch to warn him. I could see her confiding in Morgan.

hayden said...

The gal is terrific.

sophia said...

I never had seen Paget act in anything before and I missed Elle so I needed several episodes to accept Paget as Prentiss. I still miss Elle but I like Prentiss more with every episode.

merrill said...

I could see her talking it over with somebody but I think it would be someone outside of the BAU first. I think she would know that any of the other members of the team would immediately go running to Hotch with the news. Perhaps her mum or maybe a friend.

marc said...

Paget is an extremely gorgeous woman. I think that has been said but I wanted to repeat it. She is stunning.

amy said...

I guess having Joe added to the cast does take poor Paget off the newbie hook. She really was under such a microscope since she joined the cast. Now it is his turn. I wish him all the best of luck in our third season.

wendi said...

Love Paget. Always have.

colleen said...

We seem to be talking about both Paget and the season finale. Cool beans.

Love Paget's work. I wish I knew more about her previous stuff.

Prentiss is in a pickle. I think she will want to do the right thing. I hope so.

empty nest said...

Prentiss has ambition so don't rule out her testing the waters to see where Hotch leaving would get her. I don't see how she could advance within the unit even if he was gone but she might need a minute to think about it.

Paget was a great surprise to me. I was ready to dislike her just because Lola left and it never happened. I liked her from her first scene.

janet said...

Prentiss has just the right touch of nerdiness and strength to make her an interesting character. Paget plays her well. I think she has a very large part in the show which was my initial surprise but now I see she can carry it and I like her even more for that.

holly said...

I like Paget.

miramax lover said...

I like PB but Prentiss can still get on my nerves. I like her better as time goes on but I would not trust her to do right by Hotch.

zara said...

Paget is a good egg.

lacey said...

I really just could not stand Prentiss in the beginning. She was always yes sirring Hotch and she drove me to distraction but over time she mellowed or maybe I mellowed and now I enjoy her character.

Ambra said...

I've liked Paget and Emily from the beginning. I think her character is developing very well and I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store for Prentiss in Season 3.

shemarsgirl said...

I like her very much! It took a couple of episodes but I did warm up to her. She brings something different to the ensemble. They all seem to fit with each other, like puzzle pieces.

Anonymous said...

Argh! Please tell us, I really want to hear more of your fantastic reports. I really like the actress but I think my final opinion on her character will depend on her not betraying the team.

Anonymous said...

i like the actress alot. but i don,t like the part she plays. i also still miss elle, i hope she don,t turn on hotch. i hope she goes to him and tells him what is going on then he can con confront the big boss. very excided for the season to start on the 26th.
