Can Kirsten Vangsness Spark Interest in CRIMINAL MINDS Spin-off Series?

Popular CRIMINAL MINDS computer tech, Penelope Garcia, aka Kirsten Vangsness, has been approached to reprise her role on the up coming MINDS spin-off series, "CRIMINAL MINDS: Suspect Behavior," coming to CBS in January, 2011.

The series, which will star Forest Whitaker, and has had a chilly response from fans so far. Most MINDS fans disliked the pilot episode, "The Fight," which aired in April, citing a poor script, lack of chemistry among the characters, and a dislike for the idea of a MINDS spin-off in general.

Kirsten, a gifted comedic actress, is a fan favorite on the original program, beloved for her zany personality and flirtatious banter with the male cast members, especially Derek Morgan, star SHEMAR MOORE'S character. She is pictured with SHEMAR in the bottom photo.

Could the addition of Vangsness to the cast boost interest in the new series? Hum?


  1. I hope not. I don't like this at all. I think it take away for the orginal cast / show. I think they are trying so hard to bill up interest for Forrest then just this spin off so that they can have Forrest in the world. Whatever.

  2. No matter what they do for the spin off series, I will not be on board.
