Criminal Minds Review: 7.21 Divining Rod *SPOILERS WARNING*

DIVINING ROD - A copycat begins murdering women in the same Oklahoma town and in the same manner after an infamous serial killer is executed, and the BAU must move quickly before more people are killed. Meanwhile, Prentiss anxiously considers a large real estate purchase. First, I have to say…the editing on the opening sequence with the cat was perfect. It’s skill like that that gets into my mind to create the right ambiance than straight out showing us the crime. This wasn’t a Wow! episode. Instead it was a slow build, sprinkled with some lovely team quirks and personal moments. Reid’s random wiki spouting and Prentiss’ real estate angst came off as natural, and seamlessly fit into the rest of the show. This really was a group effort, no special spotlight on a team member with a bighugesupersecret past coming to light. I like it when we, the audience, are unaware of who the UNSUB is for most of the episode. It adds to the drama and build up to capture. I even found myself talking to the television “Look behind you!” and “no, don’t go in there alone!” When those last couple of minutes came up, I was shocked. At the beginning, I had thought maybe the wife was a part of the copycat crimes, and then was proven she wasn’t.but she was the originator of the creepy letters our favorite FBI agents were focusing on. This episode brought back a lot of what made me fall in love with the show in its first season, and bonus points for the episode title being used in the episode.

State Street Pictures and MMC Joule Films are heading to Mississippi, teaming to produce a feature version of Hillary Johnson's novel "Mudbound."

The banners have tapped Virgil Williams, a consulting producer and writer on CBS' "Criminal Minds," to pen the film adaptation in his feature screenwriting debut.

Set in rural Mississippi shortly after World War II, the story tracks six alternating voices representing two families, one black and one white, as they deal with racism, misperception and human weakness, even as they ultimately strive for love and honor. Mudbound won a 2009 Alex Award from the American Library Association as well as the 2006 Bellwether Prize for fiction,

George Tillman and Bob Teitel will produce for State Street while Sally Jo Effenson and Carl Effenson will produce for MMC Joule Films.

State Street is in pre-production on "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete," which Tillman will direct with Teitel producing. The indie, which follows two kids struggling to survive without their parents over a hot summer in the projects in New York City, will be shot this summer.

MMC Joule Films' debut feature "Hide Away," starring Josh Lucas, Ayelet Zurer and James Cromwell, will open May 25. Williams' credits include "ER," "24" and "Chicago Code."

State Street, Williams and Jordan are represented by CAA. Williams is also represented by attorneys PJ Shapiro and Matt Johnson of Ziffren Brittenham LLP. Jordan is also represented by The Gernert Co.

CRIMINAL MINDS Season 7 - Paget Brewster and AJ Cook play sexy photo spy game with Kirsten Vangsness

By Jay Bobbin
Their minds may be on criminals, but their bodies still like to play dress-up.

Such was the appeal to the female stars of CBS' long-running Wednesday series "Criminal Minds" -- Paget Brewster, A.J. Cook and Kirsten Vangsness -- when they participated earlier this year in a photo shoot for the June issue of CBS Watch! Magazine.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Tysons Corner, Va. (just outside Washington, D.C.), proved to have all the swanky settings needed for the shoot storyline casting the women as high-class spies tailing an international bad guy.

Brewster, alias FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit Agent Emily Prentiss on "Criminal Minds," says while on location for the occasion that the feel is...
