I have given up on Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, when I realized that the sniper in tonight’s episode could have shot every single team member save Garcia and I wouldn’t have cared.
How can the spin-off be so mind-bogglingly bad, when the original is so good? Spin-offs and originals sometimes vary in quality, for example it’s always a contest which CSI I like best this week. They can also differ in tone, for example Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures are all very different from each other and particularly Torchwood seems to have divorced itself drastically from its Doctor Who origins from season 2 on.
But I’ve never experienced a situation where I liked the original show and flat out hated the spin-off.
