Hey BONES fans! It’s so hard to believe it’s the end of season 8! I have enjoyed this season for the most part, certainly more than the past two. I have many thoughts about the season finale, “The Secret in the Siege,” and I’m not certain I’ll be able to articulate them perfectly, but here goes. One quick note before we get to the details of the episode — I really like it when David Boreanaz (Booth) directs episodes; it’s like seeing a good picture of someone you care about, taken by someone else you care about. He’s talented, but he also gets how talented his co-workers are. Okay…moving on!
Hey BONES fans! How did you like this episode, “The Pathos in the Pathogens”? It was definitely intense, and I really enjoyed the way Chad Lowe directed this episode, using unique camera angles. It gave the episode a frantic air, which was in line with the case and the subsequent situation at the Jeffersonian.
Hey BONES fans! You know, back in season 3, I wondered if the show creators had something against mothers. After all, none of the main characters had mothers who were living that we knew of. (Except Zack, and look how that turned out! — I’m kidding, sort of) Fast forward to now, and all three main female characters have become mothers. Additionally, Booth and Brennan have both had experiences with their mothers this season. This episode, “The Party in the Pants,” featured Booth’s mother, Marianne Booth, played by Joanna Cassidy. Honestly, I dreaded this episode, because I didn’t see how this storyline could be credible, and I wanted it to be. I was pleasantly surprised by most of it, and horrified by a little bit. There is so much to discuss, so let’s get to the details.
Hey BONES fans, how did you like this episode, “The Maiden in the Mushrooms”? It involved a salacious TV courtroom filled with jealousy, romance and alcohol (and that was just the judge and TV crew!), some legendary hot sauce and “Christine B. vs. Emma C.: The Tale of the Pre-School Biting Incident.” Let’s discuss!
Hey BONES viewers, how are things? Did you like “The Blood from the Stones”? I enjoyed it very, very much — specifically Dave Thomas’ turn as documentarian Andrew Jursic, the way the ep started with Booth arriving to the crime scene where Brennan and the J-team were already working, and the sweet end scene banter between B&B. I mostly liked everything in between too, so let’s discuss!
Hello BONES fans! We survived another hiatus, albeit a short one, but still. How did you like this episode, “The Doom in the Gloom”? It had a Triple D attack: Doomsday, Drugs and… Daisy. I have to say it’s not one of my favorites of the season, but there is still a lot to talk about, so let’s get to it.
Hello BONES fans! How did you like this episode, “The Survivor in the Soap”? I enjoyed it. The case was sad and moving, and it was nice to see Booth and Brennan react to the historical war within the contexts of their own pasts. There’s more to discuss, so let’s get to it.
Hey BONES fans, how are things? What did you think of this episode, “The Fact in the Fiction”? It featured a realistic if not somewhat predictable case, discussions of time travel, a new, abrasive, and highly intelligent intern, and an oddly emotional Sweets. There’s a lot to discuss, so let’s get right to it.
Hello BONES fans! How did you like this episode, “The Friend in Need”? It felt like a season 1 case to me; the case was sad but relevant, and the suspects were flawed but realistic. I liked it, even if it was gruesome and troubling. Actually, the more I think about the ep, the more I like it. So let’s talk about it.
Hey, BONES Fans! Well, here it is, the much-anticipated “Shot in the Dark” episode. Not that any of us wants Brennan to be shot, but it certainly provides for an interesting storyline. Is it bad that the idea of Brennan getting shot made me really want to see Booth all tense and angsty and Boothy? If that’s bad, I don’t want to be good. Speaking of good, let’s discuss the episode!
Hey BONES fans! Last week, Marisa posted an interview with :The Doll in the Derby”‘s writer, Michael Peterson, where he discussed why the issue of Neurofibromatosis (NF) is near to his heart and an interview with Michaela Conlin (Angela) on how she prepared for her roller derby scenes. This episode had quite a bit of build-up, some of which was caused by the promo showing Angela laying a kiss on Booth.
How do you think the episode turned out? There is a lot to discuss, so let’s get to it!
Hello BONES fans! I liked this episode, “The Twist in the Plot.” How about you? While the surroundings of the murder investigation were a little kooky, the suspects and plot never turned to cartoon characters or hijinks, which created a nice balance, and also allowed for some good character work, especially for Booth and Brennan. AND it’s nice when the case organically inspires B&B BOTH to think about their personal lives — versus one of them learning a lesson, you know? The good eps have the right balance between case/B&B personal lives, and I think this one had that balance. There’s a lot to discuss, so let’s get to it!
Hello BONES fans! This episode, “The Corpse in the Canopy,” was intense! And like all episodes involving Christopher Pelant, we’re left with more questions than answers. But I think the Jeffersonian team is getting to him, and hopefully he’ll soon be apprehended. Of course, a bullet wound to the face from Booth is nothing to scoff at either. A lot happened in this episode, so let’s discuss!
Hello BONES fans, and welcome to 2013! First of all, congratulations to the show for getting renewed for a ninth season. Good times!
How did you like this episode, “The Diamond in the Rough”? The ‘B&B go undercover’ episodes are historically not my favorites, but I actually thought the Booth & Brennan moments were some of the better parts of this ep, and it was fun to see guest appearances from Fox’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE’s Mary Murphy and Tyce Diorio. Let’s discuss!
