These are hard times for many people. The mid-East is on fire. Our soldiers are fighting in three wars. There have been devastating natural disasters. Unemployment is high. Inflation is rising. Oil prices go up every day. In the United States, the left and the right are polarized, and the list goes on and on. With so many problems in the world, how important is a little TV program that you watch on a Wednesday night? The answer: VERY important.
In a troubled world, it is nice to have an occasional escape. CRIMINAL MINDS, to avid fans, provides a diversion from the day to day struggles we all face. In the fictional world of the Behavioral Analysis Unit, attractive people (eye candy is always nice) face unspeakable evil, but good (usually) triumphs in the end.
We can love our Agent Derek Morgan (SHEMAR MOORE) for his leadership and compassion. We can appreciate the patriarchal Agent Rossi (Joe Mantegna), for his calm, steady insight. Quirky Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), and even more quirky Computer Tech, Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness), make us smile while they solve a case. Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) scowls while he directs the team, and beautiful women cast members, past and present, show us that women can be heroes, too. Oh, it is a dark but intriguing world!
LOVING MOORE AND MORE...is primarily a SHEMAR MOORE website (hence the double OOs in LOVING MOORE). At LOVING MOORE, we are anxiously counting down the days until CBS announces the 2011-12 Schedule. Will our beloved series return for a seventh season? SHEMAR MOORE fans are nervously waiting for word that our Morgan will be back fighting crime next season.
We have been delighted with Derek Morgan's expanded role in Season 6. SHEMAR has become a competent, mesmerizing actor, who has come a long way since his early awkward days on "The Young and the Restless."
Did Thomas Gibson deserve an Emmy nomination for "100" a couple of years back? His fans thinks so, but SHEMAR MOORE deserves a Best Supporting Actor nod for his work in the past few seasons. Especially riveting were SHEMAR's scenes with Paget Brewster, that led up to her exit from the series.
With a sigh of resignation, we will wait for word on the fate of our show, but it is so doggone hard. If other restless fans would like to communicate with like minds, visit our Message Board at www.lovingmooreandmore.com.
It is going to be a long few weeks.
