THE CRIMINAL MINDS FANATIC BLOG CELEBRATES BY GIVING AWAY A CRIMINAL MINDS SCRIPT!


Criminal Minds: One year ago today I started this Criminal Minds blog. The blog has so many people who contribute in hundreds of ways. Thank you to everyone for their participation. On October 2nd the season two Criminal Minds DVDs will be released and I am very proud that our blog and website are included in the featurettes.

To celebrate this blog-versary Ed Bernero sent us a script last month for Criminal Minds "Legacy". The script has a number already printed on the cover and the person who leaves a comment on this post that matches that number wins the script. Tomorrow everyone will also have the opportunity of winning a "Revelations" script. Thank you to Ed for his generousity and appreciation for the fans of Criminal Minds.

I remember when you sent me the email telling me you had started the blog. It seems like yesterday. The blog has become a place for me to hang out with my new CM friends and talk about the show. I love it. Thank you to all the people who work on it with you. Thank you to Slash for the great screencaps she makes for all of us. I really enjoy them. Wed is almost here!

I think that when you celebrate a one year anniversary it is customary to give paper so the script is a great party favor. Congrats Jill and well done! Congrats to everyone who has a hand in the blog. Well done!

lycentia said...

I wish for a wonderfully successful new season for both the show and the blog.

Kisses!

Anonymous said...

Jill & Slashgirl,

For so many of us just being able to come to the blog to read and see the caps from episodes we will not see for months is such a treat. Thank you both for this. I love to read the comments about the episodes. It heightens my anticipation.

love2teach said...

I am siked (syked?) about the start of the new season. Makes it even better as I watch it on a different chanel, most of the time, and they have it on earlier then CBS! I will be watching it at 7pm (AST) tomorrow night! I CAN'T WAIT!
I found this blog probably around March of this year. (Or April) I was looking for Season Finale spoliers of my favorite shows and came across this. Course, there were no spoilers on here, but it was still great!
I started watching the show itself during the first season. I was looking for something to watch and came across it. I took one look at MGG and was hooked! :)

regina said...

Thank you for welcoming strangers into the fold who ask a thousand questions. Thank you for answering all my annoying emails. Thank you for introducing me to Marina who caught me up on everything I had missed by not watching most of season one.

Congrats and Happy B-D Blog!

tania said...

I love this show its my Wed Horror/ suspence fix. The Chracters in the show just click so well together and I have followed the Careers of both Thomas Gibson and Mandy Patikin since they were in Chicago Hope and although Mr. Patikin has left the show I wish him the best in whatever he persues. adn Ilook foward to another exciting Season of Criminal Minds.

Way to stay the course Jill. Congrats to everyone who works on the blog and thank you to Ed Bernero for honoring us time and time again. We are going to support you in season 3 and celebrate the blog when it finishes year two.

PsychMaven said...

My sister was really upset last week when the CM episode was a rerun! Her favorite show that plays before CM had started up again, but CM hadn't! This week's new episode is a birthday present to me -- the next day is my birthday!

sherlockette said...

Congratulations on this great milestone!

Thanks for having a place that allows and actually encourages input from others. It is easy to have an opinion. It's a bit harder to allow others to have one.

Thanks Jill and Stacy!

june said...

I am so excited about tomorrow's episode. The new season of CM is going to be so great.

I am so excited for all of you on the anniv. of the blog. It is a great project you have all done.
