BONES: Michaela Conlin and Hart Hanson Discuss Angela’s Pregnancy

February 9, 2011 by  

On BONES, Angela has had a completely adorable and relatively easy pregnancy — so far.

As Give Me My Remote readers might remember, I talked with Michaela Conlin (Angela) and T.J. Thyne (Hodgins) at the beginning of season six and both stars warned the pregnancy would inevitably get rough.

So when will the drama start?

I caught up with Conlin last month and she teased the complications would start soon…


And how far along will Angela’s pregnancy get this season? BONES creator Hart Hanson weighs in…


Are you excited about Angela’s pregnancy progression? What kinds of complications do you think she’ll undergo?

    Still trying to do damage control by distraction. Nope, if you want to regain the fans’ trust, please be honest and address the problems first.
    I wonder if HH has seen Andrew Marlowe’s interview on this site. Marissa always asks smart, pointed questions, but it’s not much use in the Bones interviews. Compare the Castle interview to SN’s short blurb for TV Guide- still delusional about why the season is a failure so far and completely simplifying all fan reaction to the lowest common denominator.

    TO ME, in seasons past when a story arc didnt work,I AM SURE they thought just move on to the next one,but this seasons they really should care about the fans and cleaned up hannah and booth/ the writers should get away from the bar scene/and in doing so remembered booth has a 10 yr old son.

    If they think troubles in Angela-land will distract viewers from the mess they’ve made of this season, to quote as certain tv writer: ‘They’re as wrong about this as they are about everything.’

    Love Michaela and love Angela this season because she’s acting naturally, not some weirdo forced into stupid storylines like before. What HH thinks is interesting drama does not work for me. In fact, I’m afraid for Angela’s character now, not afraid for the pregnancy which is going to turn out fine anyway.
    And “Word x1000” on the show needing to clean up the mess before moving to new arcs. Hannah is the least of their problems now. She can leave, but we’re still stuck with what they’ve done to Booth and Bones. I hate how the show is pandering to fans by just throwing in BB scenes, as if we’re all Hannah Haters or Booth lovers and will squee at anything. Lets recover the individual characters first.

    Will viewers actually see this? Angela scenes seem to end up on the editing floor. Other things Michaela said were shot have not been shown. A lot of changes have taken place since the break. We may get some problems but it probably won’t really play out on TV.

    I agree with others. They have to fix all of the characters. The chemistry of the entire cast is gone. HH can’t throw Hogela problems into about 10% of the show and make viewers forget that the center of the show is gone.

    I wish HH & team would at least look at the comments from this site and realize that many viewers watch for the partnership dynamics and the team dynamics. That’s what’s off balance. The shipper drama has already gone past the point of ridicule. Fix the characters, don’t throw cheap shipper scenes at us.

    Is HH overtly chauvinistic now? Between the comments for the last episode and this interview, the impression is getting stronger and stronger. The thing I don’t understand is, the show gained popularity with viewers and earned a great reputation as lighthearted fun with banter between strong, unique characters. Even if HH is a closet chauvinist, why mess with the formula and take that away from the female half of the partnership?

    What I’m trying to say is, the show succeeded by NOT appealing to the “lowest common denominator” audience. So why the change this season?

    Do you have an interview ready for the fans after tonight’s episode? I know you usually do after a big episode or premiere.

    I really don’t know what to think of this season. I don’t know if HH is trying to prove that it is the writing that has kept the series alive or if he is writing anything/everything to keep B&B apart as long as possible.

    I feel that HH & co are operating in the Twilight Zone and it started in S4 especially with the finale. S5 started out good then he really went wonky with doing the most unBoothy thing in the 100th with the ‘moving on’ bit. Jack/Angela’s marriage was, well, wierd. The Parker scene in S5 finale was another wierd thing. We get back to have Booth slam Brennan to Caroline and Booth wasn’t in the Army. Another very strange scene was the sunglasses between Hannah/Brennan. The Brencentric episode was right from the pages of The Twilight Zone. Then we had the final scene in ‘Sin in the Sisterhood’.

    Maybe it’s me but it seems that there is either fresh paint in the writers’ room that is making them hallucinate or they got ahold of some pretty damn good weed.

    Are we asking for reasonable explanations? That’s…. optimistic. Add to that list, for me, was Hannah freaking out over a possible proposal because Booth cooked her dinner. Did the writers date Glenn Close from Fatal Attraction? That is not a normal response, even from a gypsy “journalist.” And did Booth really move in a girlfriend without introducing him to Parker? The Brennencentric episode was Twilight Zones in a bad way, but my genuine question would be what were we supposed to learn about Bones in that episode? We knew she had regrets in the first episode back, and we knew she was strong/vulnerable from the pilot. I’m not being sarcastic, but what were we supposed to learn?
    Agree with all the comments, there’s no use getting excited over minor spoilers that won’t pan out, and it’s no longer distracting us from the major problems.

    Well, to be fair, HH and SN seem active on Twitter and a lot of the comments there are from rabid supporters or haters. Not that that’s an excuse since they choose to engage with Twitter for publicity, but they must be getting more reliable feedback too. Like someone said, the show gained with smart characters and this season saw a slow decline in ratings before Idols. It warms my mean old heart to see the public is not as stupid as the show assumed. Speaking of putting one on over the public, what’s the point of Angela’s pregnancy scare spoiler? There’s no way anything is happening to that baby, so it’s just a distraction.

    Too little? Definitely. Too late? Perhaps. I just find it hard to get excited about the B storylines (all due respect to Michaela Conlin, whose Angela I adore) when the overal team chemistry is kind of dead.

    It just struck me that, uncomfortable as it may be (and I’ve been in denial about this for a long time), what the other posters are saying is kind of true. When the writers’ choice of story, characterisation, or dialogue sounds just… bizarre or out-there or it is just plain incomprehensible, and when this happens more than once, then it’s probably time to move on. Oh well. It was good while it lasted. On to other shows, I guess.

    To ME the truth about hannah is really needed did REBECCA GIVE her blessings to hannah and booth living together or was she the one who had PARKER to ask are you sleeping with my dad? but I DONT FEEL HANNAH HAS TO COME BACK.Booth can tell us AND until he does DONT FEEL he stands much chanced with brennan.

  13. Liz on February 10th, 2011 2:19 pm

    I’m trying to love the show, I really am. But why even bother defending the timeline This isn’t Mad Men or Arrested Development. We know they’re on some TVLand timeline where 6 years of UST is ok.

    Timeline continuity is not a problem. Instead, I dare anyone in that writer’s room to look at the Bones from earlier seasons to current Bones and try to argue organic character evolution with a straight face. That one, viewers aren’t buying.

  14. Sam on February 14th, 2011 9:45 am

    Bones is one of those shows you like the mysteries or you don’t. The romantic side is pretty dead. The writers have taken WAY to long to either get Bones and Booth together. At this point, I really don’t care if they do or don’t. BONES has been on for 6 years, and people who date for six years never almost never get engaged and get married. The way this show draws it out I could care less anymore. I am sure that there are those who do, but the ratings fit what I say. Season 4 had the peak average with nearly 11 million watching. Season 5 fell to just about 10 million watching. Season 6 has fallen again, as under 10 million are watching. This is an older show that has drawn out the relationship for too long, and viewers are leaving now as they have lost interest in when they are going to “get together.” Good luck with that, Bones.
