    What baffles me is why the Network would downsize one of the fans biggest favorites in loo of who knows what. I love Criminal Minds ever since it debuted and have enjoyed watching the development of every character on the show. They speak of themselves like a family and they kinda feel that way to me what I watch. Thanks to Dish Network, I do have other great HD channels where previous episodes and seasons are running and I can enjoy her character in full on one those HD channels. Although I do travel quite frequently for work through Dish Network but I've found that I'm always content and happy to come home to my favorite show whether it's on my home TV or streaming to my iPad from my Sling Adapter. Either way, I really hope that Brewster finds happiness and success in whatever roles she finds to play. She is talented and strong in her authority in front of the camera and a joy to watch.
