Unless I'm blind and clueless (a slight possibility on either), I did not notice a previous thread on Bones, FOX's attempt at a CSI-wannabe. Anybody watch it? Since I find nothing of interest on TV on Thursdays from 8pm on, I started catching a couple episodes. I mean, one of the bearded dudes (NOT Frank Beard, obviously) from ZZ Top is a character's father! How can that not be comedy gold? :rolleyes:

If you enjoy the series at all you should check out the older stuff, it really was the best. Zack was a great character, but he has basically been removed.

My wife is a big fan, I have enjoyed more than a few episodes myself. The ZZTop dad has only made a couple brief appearances.

The show is based on a series of books, like Dexter, except they are written by a real life anthropologist, based (loosely) on her life.

There is a lot of dry comedy to the series, it's not everybody's cup of tea.:p

Of all the monotonous forensics shows I'd take Bones if I had to - for its humour. I just don't get why its necessary to have 3 different CSIs on air in addition to 2 Law and orders, criminal minds etc. Too much stuff like that while Terminator is on the brink of cancellation.

I enjoy Bones quite a bit. I like the humor in it, and the interaction between Bones and Booth. Emily Deschanel is pretty good looking, though her sister is a bit cuter.

Zack was a good character, but they've had a lot of fun with the rotating people filling his spot. There was the one guy who thought Bones was hitting on him, the depressed philosophical guy, the uptight black guy, and the guy who spouts off random trivia. I believe his name was Nigel Murray. He's probably my favorite. They had some fun doing experiments this week like Hodgins and Zack used to do.

Three or four times at the most. The first time was the season 1 Christmas show.

I like the show. But Fox doesn't give the show the respect it deserves, moving it around to different time slots, etc...

Last season's Zack storyline was okay. I know the Gorgamon storyline was originally to stretch until this season but, because of the strike, the producers didn't think viewers would stick with it and remember what was going on, and the storyline was wrapped up in one season. The actor who played Zack didn't know he was going to be Gorgamon's assistant until he was called into the producers' office and told.

And the producers never fully explained what happened to Zack during his tenure in Iraq. He left at the end of season 2.

I've enjoyed the replacement assistants. Kinda like Murphy Brown and her assistants! A different one every week, on MB, that is.

I've been a fan of Bones for a couple of years. I like the mix of science and police work. OC is right about Fox, they keep moving the show around, infact there was a new episode yesterday, today and on Monday (I don't know about next Thursday).

Wouldn't it be cool if FOX moved the show into 206 different timeslots? Or if the series makes it to 206 episodes?

The season finale was really cool; that dream sequence style is often nicely done. But since I'd missed the penultimate episode, I was a bit lost about Booth being in a hospital. Loved noticing how they made the characters' usual roles adjusted for this storyline.

JimJamBonds

I have mixed emotions about the season finale. The issue at hand is the dream sequence and the fact that maybe 30 seconds took place in "reality."

OC47150
05-17-2009, 07:26 PM
Dream sequences have a tendency to fail. But in Bones' case, it worked well. I liked how all the temp lab assistants were worked into the episode.

I have the penultimate ep taped...somewhere. I will have to find it and watch.

Always.

I also do the "That's some bad hat, Harry" (and I've tried to figure out unsuccessfully to determine if that's an anagram) line at the end of House and the "shhhh!" after The Simpsons. In fact, I've probably done it for most of those lines.

My favorite older one? "Sit Ubu, sit. Good dog. Woof!"

I doubt it, I'd bet we see his brother again before we see Pops.

There was a error in the dialog in this episode. Booth said that Pop's was in the 82nd Airborne yet he mentioned him fighting in a battle that took place in the Pacific. I don't remember which battle it was but due to my nerdy military history interest that line really stuck out to me since the 82nd was in the ETO not the PTO.

The writers can just write (get it?) it off as more of Pops' memory aging issues, if they wish.

Seeley is the one that says it not Pops so while it could be said its his bad memory I'd think that A) Pops told him before his memory went south B) Booth I'd guess would probably have done some research and realized it was wrong or C) It doesn't matter. :D

Bel-Cam Jos

I like the semi-serious but mainly-fun style; it reminds me of House. Medical or crime scene shows that take themselves too seriously get little to no viewing from me.

I agree with you Bel-Cam, the mix of funny and serious is what makes me love Bones, House, and The Mentalist. I quit the CSI and CSI Miami series because I enjoyed these other shows more. They are just more entertaining.

It is a delicate balance though... Too much drama and it becomes a soap opera and too much funny and you lose the good story lines it seems. These shows do a great job of it.

I may have to look into purchasing these dvd sets.

Emily is hott, as is the actress who plays Angela. :)

I agree with both of you. I like the humorous interaction between the characters. I like the different quirks of the revolving assistants. "King of the Lab" is a great phrase. I like how Bones is funny even when she isn't trying to be.

A friend of mine kinda sorta looks like Emily.... kinda.

One thing that is getting a bit old for me is the "random friend/co worker/family member/criminal/whomever" that makes a comment to either Booth or Bone's (or both of them) that they should be together. I get it, I really do! At some point they will hook up I have no doubts about that. Well hooking up beyond Booth's weird dream at the end of last season. ;) But I feel its being said just a little bit too often, writers, please take it down a couple of notches. Thanks, JJB

I really like how they shuffle the interns in and out for the episodes. I think Vincent Nigel-Murray is my favorite though. His infinite amount of useless (depending on your point of view) facts are amusing. I can associate with his never-ending quest for approval from Dr. Brennan too.

I don't really like that they have Wendel sleeping with Angela. Hodgins is my favorite character and it just sucks for him, especially since he and Wendel have been buddies in the lab.

Dang, I am making this sound a little too much like a soap opera. Sorry

Anybody else see last weeks episode? Bones and Booth worked a case one year prior to the pilot episode. While it was nice to see a few funny moments like Bones be there person to suggest that Zack and Jack do an experiment I'm not so sure about having Bones, Booth and Cam meet prior to what we saw in earlier episodes. I'll have to go back and watch the pilot but it seems as if the writers took a few too many liberties re writing the past.

I didn't mind the episode. There were a few moments where I laughed a bit.

So, the guitar guy was from Buckcherry? I just realized recently that Buckcherry is an spoonerism of Chuck Berry. Wikipedia says they got the name from from a drag queen acquaintance, though. I'm not really familiar with them, other than "Lit Up" was on one of those VH1 lists of top hard rock songs or something.

Yeah that was a weird end. I can see Bones coming back in a year but no way Booth could reenlist in the Rangers and be out in a year. Since the Army wanted him because of his experience with the Rangers and FBI I'd think having him go over as a consultant would make more sense.

MSP, while watching last night, I couldn't get your hairstyle comment out of (off of?) my head. ;) The "case study on TV" about New Jersey males and females was quite funny; I wonder if any who live there would feel that was a shot at them (but of course, their 'V' abs can take any shot you got, know what I'm sayin'? :D ). Bones is showing to remain professional while she's clearly struggling with Booth's new interest. We'll see how far that goes before there's a blow-up or more emotional neuron and endorphins reaction from her.

Nope, just dance around in a bone costume! I thought DAG was great, I was expecting a 'king of the lab' comment from Jack at some point so that was a bit of a let down.

All in all I'm liking this season so far, the Hannah thing seems legit although Sweets planted the seed that it won't work (the bonded in combat exchange). I'm not sure I'm digging Bones' new 'dew.

Last night was among the best episodes I've seen in the series overall (but to be honest, I've missed MANY ones). I was hoping it wouldn't be a dream sequence where she wakes up with a knife wound. Throughout the show, I was wondering what was real, what was in characters' minds, what would happen next. Very good IMHO.

I'll post these as SPOILERS, just in case someone's DVR hasn't been watched yet. I thought that:

- Bones would be in a hospital room to end the show, with a rib injury caused by a knife (meaning she'd been the one hurt, not the in-the-tree body) trying to retrace the events of the crime (maybe even Bones with the heroin somehow)
- Micah was never there, but the actor who played him would appear somewhere (as the doctor, another FBI agent, etc.)
- there would be a her-or-me scene with Booth's new love, him, and Bones (to be the cliffhanger ending)

Again, very good episode. :thumbsup:

I didn't really care for that episode, while it was nice to see Addy again as Bone's intern I think there were too many "just happened to be scenario's" such as Cam being involved as the state corner from NY. I think that kinda of takes away from their first meeting at that train crash in Season II.

Is Bones REALLY that literal in her thinking, and seemingly incapable of understanding human emotion? I did chuckle at the "quota" of plans changed in a day line, and cringed at the pipe snake scene at the start. This one was pretty good, with just enough action and talking to keep it moving well.

There wasn't much to the Booth/Bones relationship until the closing scenes, aside from occasional references throughout, as I expected; but the "suggestive dialogue" rating was quite true. :rolleyes: I wasn't really surprised at who the accused suspect was. Next week: "Will he, or won't he?"

I found myself predicting most of the details before they happened (but like Hodges, had NO idea what the dad's name for the child would be :eek: )... the witness protection victim, where the rogue sniper would meet Booth, the result of the female former-soldier, Booth's rifle decision on the roof. Still, it was a good paced show, with just enough humor; like the show often is.

Next week's looks interesting.

I liked it although it was predictable and dawn out to make it a multi episode arc. So they knew the sniper guy would be on the roof, then why not go up there and arrest him? You still could have had a spotter in the other building watching him etc.

This one was surprisingly more emotional (Hodgins' test results, Booth's neighbor's dead husband's clothes on Sweets, Booth's/Bones' elevator discussions) than funny (trash diving for stadium seats, Tarzan Hodgins after the power surge).

This was the most bizarre Bones I've ever seen, because of what JJB said. I was having flashbacks to the "Poochy" Simpsons episode. It was hard to follow, and I was never sure if a series character would show up in a scene or not. It wasn't bad, just confusing.

Ms. Deschanel didn't look "with child" at all, so I wonder when this one was filmed (quite a few outdoor and on-location scenes, too).

Yeah, that was pretty stupid. Especially since they were probably paying it through insurance provided by the military, so it would've just been on the billing info? Regardless, that was the best episode of Bones I've seen since some of the earlier season episodes. 'Course, I don't think I've even seen a dozen episodes in total. I hope this does become its own show, though, it seemed like fun. Plus, Michael Clarke Duncan.

Mad Slanted Powers
04-23-2011, 01:22 PM
Was there anything to suggest that his finding Booth in the hospital was extraordinary? Even Bones pointed out to Booth that the fact that he waited until after he held his son was an indication that he let things slide.

I enjoyed the episode, and liked the new characters. I think all the regular characters were in the episode, and we saw them enough to know that they were in contact with the new characters and that they were all working on the case. I might watch the new series if it makes it onto the lineup.

My wife thought she recognized "the finder" guy so we looked him up on IMDB. Nothing really stood out to me, but if you go to his page (Geoff Stults) (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0836176/) it lists an Untitled Bones Spinoff Project (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1839682/)in pre-production. Sounds like they will be basing a whole series on this guy and his magical skills. The actors who played Ike and Leo are also listed on the Project's IMDB page.

You know, this one with the deaf-uncommunicative girl had more "truth" in its subtleties. Brennan revealed more about herself and her "issues" than when pressed to be honest in the former one.

I think the show did an excellent job of revealing "possible" hits during the sniper scene. While I didn't have much of a connection to whom was shot, the way the reminiscing went was also done excellently. I wonder if that will be the end of this story arc. Really good episode.

Well, for those who haven't seen the season finale yet, I won't answer it clearly. But I will say, there's a specific statement that confirms the "did/didn't" issue, plus Hodgins' and Angela's baby is born by the end. See it for yourself for the honest truth. :D

First off, I thought it was going to be the girl who killed that guy. I was so sure it was her I didn't pay any attention to the shoe guy.

Hodgelena's baby: is it wrong for a bit of me that wanted the kid to be blind? Not that I'm mean or cruel or I don't like those characters (I do) its just that I had the thought that would have opened up a whole new story line. With it not an issue we'll never hear about that again.

Now the biggie. Again, I didn't think she was preggers, I laughed at Max saying "there is something different." I read an interview with Hart Hanson (the creator) that said the writing staff had a big debate as to if B&B should be together at the end of the season. I wonder if they had them together because Emily aka Bones is preggers in real life???

Reguardless, I can't wait for season VII!!

"Yeah, Timmy Tantrum, you'll get 7-10 split up in the pin resetter if you don't behave!" :D

I thought about the girl, but while she was a spaz, I just didn't see her as a killer, accidentally or intentionally.

I was wondering if the child might eventually develop blindness, which I think would be more of a crushing blow to them, after their anxiety was abated at the birth.

Odd that I didn't think Bones looked all that pregnant in the last two shows. The trailer trash duo look of Buck and [insert Bones' psuedonym] was funny.

Well, that was the whole issue of Booth's frustrations with Bones; that she didin't realize the emotions associated with such announcements and plans. "Opie" vs. "Thurston" was fun, and seeing Finn be accepted into the team was nice (despite the heavy accent and colloquialisms, he could be a good addition).

I'd been thinking about this and it doesn't totally make sense. On the one hand she is pretty much a straight shooter, just takes care of business so to speak. On the other hand her anthropology background would give her examples of why doing certain things together (like the ultra sound/telling people what the kid will be) while not 'needed' it is important in its own way....and yeah I know that anthro background also gives examples where it wouldn't be a big deal I know.

There is no (N) next to it indicating that it is new. My Comcast on screen guide has the same title and says that it is the season 8 premiere, with a description that fits.

I saw that on the guide today, but some time last week, it had "The Past in the Present," with a description which matched last season's final episode. Weird. I have it set to record anyway; my luck, it'll be an American Idol, season 4 rerun or something.

I'm "glad" I'm not the only one whose been confused about Bones. I thought the season finale was her giving birth in a barn yet during the Olympics I saw part of an episode with the baby and the same thing this past Friday. Why didn't they just start the season with those 4 episodes??? (maybe they filmed them after the season finale?)

I caught the last 15 minutes of last season's finale. First time I watched Bones in months. Hate that Fox keeps moving shows around so much.

I will simply say that I was surprised at how they ended the first episode (more about the 2-or-3-minutes-left part, actually) of this season, but not necessarily in a bad way. It was a good show, and very emotionally charged.

Now, how will the MLB playoffs mess with FOX's shows next month?

Based on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bones_(season_7), it looks like the birth was in the middle of last season (episode 7)

Now, how will the MLB playoffs mess with FOX's shows next month?According to this week's next-week promo, we won't see Bones until November.

These past two episodes have been fun and funny, which is exactly the kind of light-hearted TV I prefer right now. Realistic, gritty shows don't do much for me at this time.

I haven't yet seen last week's show, but this week's one with Veterans' Day/9-11 themes was powerful, among the best in the series, IMHO. Keep a tissue handy. The promo hints at another funny one next time.

Indeed, a very moving episode. Also, it was cool to see all of those interns together.

Interesting how they brought in another crime scene worker for this week's show. I was wrong from the start on whodunnit. A few chuckle-worthy moments, plus the serious (sort of) relationship ones.

[edit] I finally watched the artisan colony episode today. I guessed the murderer early on and was surprised at how the team missed the most important clue.

Brennan sure is weird when she tries to interact with others in public (i.e. her "break the ice" story to the dance competitor). I was really wondering if Angie would be leaving the show (impossible without taking Hodgins, too).

JimJamBonds

With Bones moving to the same time as How I Met Your Mother I haven't been watching the show, this past week with a rerun on HIMYM I tried watching Bones but it just seemed kinda "ehh."

Well, whenever Palante [sp?] is a part of the episode, it's creepy and nerve-racking. I can't recall ANY humor in this'n at all. It was tough to watch, and I was hoping he'd get caught and just end this disturbing arc. Did he? Watch your DVR and find out.

Pelant did something to drain their account a few episodes ago. They had to choose between saving their money or saving the kids at a school that a drone was about to destroy.

So Bones died twice (or was it three times?) and saw her mom. I thought it was an ice bullet, but the blood one was even weirder. I was hoping it wasn't Palante again. The Sweets side stories are just getting sad now.

I didn't catch that part of the episode but what about him hooking up with that agent? They got along but he was with Daisy so nothing happened but he said if he were ever single...

Bel-Cam Jos
02-17-2013, 08:56 AM
It's just the typical sorry-to-hear-you're-coping-with-a-breakup talk, or he mopes about how things used to be, tries to ask out others who just want to do their jobs (i.e. the agent).

Bel-Cam Jos
02-19-2013, 08:19 PM
I was pleased to see Sweets get to do something this time, and even better that he felt good about the end results. I was wondering if they would have a PSA at the end, on the issue covered. It is sad that you can piece together an entire event by looking at photos (even if it did solve this crime) that seem to narrate their lives for others to see. :(

I'm not sure how well this new intern (name?) will (might?) fit in with the team, but it was fun to watch.

Not surprised that Cam and the intern are now known as a couple (not well hidden, anyway). I wondered if this would have an Invisible Children PSA after, but it was tough to watch sometimes, with the child soldiers angle. :(

Somewhere, I had read that this week was supposed to have an ending you won't see coming. Hmm... I called it once that character entered the storyline on-screen. Unless I missed something that didn't even happen; I guess I wouldn't see THAT coming. :rolleyes: But I found this both funny and eerie at the same times (a Strange Brew filmmaker romance, on-camera hamming-up, copkiller crimes, etc.); a pretty good mix.

Bel-Cam Jos

Aside from the hot sauce side story, there wasn't much to interest me of this one. And there's a two-week wait for the next new one.

Booth's mom shows up after 24 years. Strippers as suspects. It was a pretty good episode, but didn't really connect to any previous ones. Next week's has the look of a season finale, from the promo; but it better not be Palante. :mad:

The part that I hate about Palante episodes is that it is not fictional; these crimes can actually occur today, with everyone's reliance on technology. It was a good story, but I saw too much of the recent Boston bombing scenarios/possibilities there. :(

Bel-Cam Jos
09-09-2013, 12:01 AM
Commercials show that next Mon. 9/16, the season premiere is on. Here's hoping to few Palante stories, unless it's like the one where they eliminated that one serial killer woman quickly in the season.

This was a really good episode; very emotional (but not cry-worthy, just in a strained relationship way) and stressed, very in-depth, and confusing enough that I didn't see the crime details well. Have I said I hate Palante before? :mad: Next week's is another undercover one, which are always fun shows.

Really good episode tonight: tough to watch Cam's ID theft storyline, and Angela's lack of knowledge about Booth's can't-marry-Bones issue. But the undercover plot was funny, especially the sumo outfit scenes.

Bel-Cam Jos

Best Bones episode ever, IMHO. :D Funniest part had to be the interns' wedding garments. Enough appearances of past and current cast members (including one who sang a song), plenty of chuckle-worthiness (wedding pool comes to mind), and even the murder case was interesting.

Yes, Cam found out that she could increase the penalties for her friend's identity theft crimes, but was talked into taking the high road by her boyfriend.
