ECM: Hi everybody! 150th starting now!
ECM: Anybody have any ?'s
Danny_CMFan: Hi Erica! Are you on set right now?
ECM: Just got back from set a bit ago and just got out of casting for ep 7x17! All excited about 150!
RT @sheisanniebelle: Where do you guys get the ideas for your unsubs?
ECM: We used to get them from actual serial killers but now they're coming from our crazy writers' minds!!!
B_4BeLOVEd: will there be an episode focusing on Derek Morgan this season?
ECM: Yes! He's got some good ones coming up! Stayed tuned and we'll get Shemar in here to chat!!!
Jenn Lee Burgess: Hi Erica! Do you plan all of the episodes or come up with the ideas throughout the season?
ECM: We do a little of both -- talk about the journeys for our heroes but then come up with bad guys each week!
Kris Orr: I know it's been talked about, is CM going to be participating in ComicCon this year?
ECM: Great question! We're hoping to get a spot @ #sdcc this summer! Would you guys be into that? Show us the love & we'll try to get there
Tracey Lane: How long are your workdays?
ECM: 24 hours a day! It's like being a mom! The crew works 12-14 hours/day and writers more like 12 because we take it home with us!
ECM: What did you guys think of the jet scene?!!!
doreen britton: is there a real squad like this?
ECM: Yes but the real BAU heroes don't have a private jet!
Sarah Hott: How often do you guys get writer's block?
ECM: Writers block happens DAILY on this show. Virgil's sitting in here with it RIGHT NOW!
Vanessa L. @VanessaRossi: Will there be another Rossi-centric episode this season? And when will we see Strauss again?
ECM: Virgil's writing a Rossi centric now and Strauss will be with us again by the end of the season!
Ashley @Adorrel: Tell Virgil that we wish him good luck on getting past Writer's Block!
Tracy @awwunicorns: Besides the lovely Dean Cain, are there any upcoming guest stars you can tell us about?
ECM: Kathy Baker's in 7x16 and she's amazing! Teri Polo in 7x18!
Dragon: what is the best thing about CM fans? Happy 150! Here's to 150 more!!!
ECM: I couldn't possibly pick just ONE thing about the fans. Loyalty. Trust. Dedication. Enthusiasm. Love. Passion. U make this fun for us!
@happybrowngirl Sometimes I think the writers of #CriminalMinds hate women. Really. Really. Hate. Women.
ECM: 1/2 of our writing staff is women. We can only have men or women (or children) as vics. Look at this season. We don't discriminate!
Tracy @awwunicorns: What do you feel sets #CriminalMinds apart from other crime procedurals?
ECM: We ask WHY a suspect hurts people. Other shows ask HOW they did it. Our team also dominates like no other. #criminalminds
Kiera Fallon: Were there any celebrations on set of the 150th episode??
ECM: We all hugged and ate ice cream sundaes. Watch for a message from @JoeMantegna
Emily Kraft: Erica, did the writers originally write in Morgan and Garcia's flirting or did the actors add that in?
ECM: A little of both. Their off screen chemistry plays well on screen!
Celeste Sofía: is KV the mastermind behind @Garcia_BAU, if not who is then? and we will get another "member of the team" on twitter?
ECM: Our beloved @rickdunkle & @Vangsness are the masterminds every week!
Shanti Fierce: Do you have a personal favorite episode or season?
ECM: Tough Q. 7x01 for many reasons. Mainly cause our team is together again!!!
@SmileyGidget: Its Australia Day today, can us Aussies get a #CriminalMinds shout out?! ;)
ECM: Hello, mates!!!!! We love Australia! And a hello to our favorite New Zealand director, Jesse Warn! #criminalminds
Silvinha: What do you think about the whole shipper thing?
ECM: First time I heard it, I had to ask what it meant! Love that everyone's got an opinion! Can't please 'em all!
Morgan Payne: Is this CM's last season??
ECM: Better not be! We've got plenty more stories to tell!!!!
ECM: Just so you know, @virgilwilliams is now avoiding writing by signing up for twitter!!!!
victoria martin: is there going to be anymore Kevin and Garcia moments?
ECM: Next new ep has G/K stuff and later in the season. Stay tuned :)
ECM: Goodnight, everybody! THANK YOU for 150 Episodes!!!!
