A new spin-off series based on CRIMINAL MINDS is scheduled to premier on CBS this spring. In an interview with TV Guide this week, series co-star, A.J. Cook (top photo), says the cast isn't jumping up and down about the new show. "We're a little jealous," she confides. "We feel a little threatened."
Cook's cast mate Thomas Gibson (bottom right) questions the premise of the spin-off. MINDS is based on the idea that the FBI only has one BAU unit. Gibson feels that is what has made the series special. He has a negative view of spin-offs in general. He told TV Guide reporter Lisa Bernhard, "Most of the time I think spin-offs are a crass grab at capitalizing on something that's worked."
Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but LOVING MOORE agrees with Tom. Our money is on the original.
