Criminal Minds - Season 8 - Interview with Joe Mantegna

Thanks to Adam for the heads up.

Adam: Season 8 kicks off with the team coping with the departure of Emily Prentiss and the addition of a new team member. What can you tell us about the first few episodes? How much time has passed since the Finale?

Joe: We usually use the normal 10-week hiatus period as the time off we have between our final season’s episode and our first episode of the new season. I think it helps the continuity of the show to do that whenever possible. The first few episodes will help our new cast member Jean acclimate.


Adam: The BAU is no stranger to changes. How does the team warm up to newcomer Alex Blake (played by Jeanne Tripplehorn)?

Joe: There is a period of adjustment when a new member joins the team, as there was when I joined 5 years ago. I think our writers do a fine job of making that transition as easy as possible and enjoyable to the viewers.


Adam: Tell us more about Alex Blake. What kind of relationship or interaction will she have with David Rossi?

Joe: As to what Alex Blake’s relationship or interaction with Rossi is, is yet to be determined. I think it’s wise to not force too much info in too quickly. Over the season we’ll see how Jeanne’s character of Alex establishes herself with all the team.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
