    she drove the character into the ground years ago. Abby of S1&2 used to be awesome. she was different without being ‘quirky for sake of it, and disgustingly twee&adorkable’ professional, and generally appropriate. then, by her own admission, Perrette used the character to deal with the emotional fallout of her nasty divorce, making her childlike, infantalising her, making her neurotic and unable to have boundaries, blaming everything on other people, and increasingly grating. the character has become increasingly grating and beyond irritating. she’s had zero character growth in 14 years.

    To be honest, the whole show should wrap up. It’s declined over the last few years and should bow out when it still has some fans. That’s the problem now though, they stick to tried and tested and have shows go on forever like Greys, Criminal Minds etc rather than give new shows a season or two to settle, and instead most are cancelled before the first season is even finished.

    She’s not getting much airtime on the show lately, but I’m going to miss her. That being said, I wonder why someone leaves a successful role after that many years.

    It’s so far fetched anyway. The series has killed more naval
    personnel that the major wars have. And the methodology of forensic evidence gathering utilised on a weekly basis would lead to every so called criminal getting off. They have all made their “Millions” so why carry on. Tony’s new position as “Bull” is as bad. That show name only lacks the prefix “Load-a.”

    There’s been some growth, she even started wearing some color, but I understand where you’re arriving from. And frankly, 15/16 years playing one character is a long time. You’d think she’d be promoted with a staff which would give room for more story lines. It’s hard work, too. And at 48, and wealthy doing something she’s absolutely loved doing without a lot of acting training, why not retire? Spend money.

    Bull is fantastic. He’s earned his second season. The original characters, and the actors who portray them, have all aged. They’ve different lives now as men and women.

    Criminal minds is having the same type of growing pains.

    I disagree. It’s up to creative whether or not to wrap it up. It still has major good ratings. Its off-shoots: NCIS: LA and New Orleans are going strong. Lots of stories still to tell.

    Tony’s Bull just earned a second season. He’s managed to evolve into another character that still owns a good sense of humor, and what he loves to do, act. I adore the show’s insight into the human condition. The story’s are fascinating.
