Thanks to “30 Rock” we will forevermore associate the term “uncanny valley” — that point where robots or 3-D animation gets a little “too” real and causes humans to be repulsed rather than attracted — with Tracy’s porn video game.

That association makes these pics from “Criminal Minds” upcoming episode “The Uncanny Valley” even more disturbing.

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
