BONES 150th Episode: 6 Teases For ‘The Ghost in the Machine’

November 29, 2012 by  

BONES celebrates episode 150 next week with “The Ghost in the Machine,” and after viewing the hour (which was written by series creator Hart Hanson), I figured I’d tease a little bit about what’s to come…

  • You’ve never seen our characters like this before. And I mean that literally. The producers have teased we see everything from the point of view of the victim, and that’s true. Nearly the entire episode is shown from the view of the remains (meaning the actors are often talking right to the camera), which could be disconcerting, but personally made me not want to take my eyes off the screen.
  • In order to “stay” with the storyline, the remains go on quite a few (plausible) road trips.
  • While the episode is certainly darker, Cyndi Lauper’s Avalon Harmonia is as lovably kooky as ever. (And here’s hoping she returns soon.)
  • It may have not been originally intended to be the show’s 150th episode, but it’s so fitting it is. The show has never done anything like “The Ghost in the Machine,” and I don’t see how they could again. So it’s nice that they’re at least celebrating the milestone with something fans will remember.
  • There are a couple of callbacks to a few of my favorite Booth/Brennan moments from previous seasons in the hour.
  • The show does a really good job of making you care about this victim almost instantly. It may be one of my favorite cases they’ve done, because I really just wanted to know what happened to this kid.

Are you looking forward to “The Ghost in the Machine”?

BONES airs Mondays at 8 PM on Fox.

    Really looking forward to this episode. As one of the bonus episodes it sounds most intriguing and entertaining. A fitting episode for the 150th Also loved The Patriot In Purgatory, another bonus episode, which was superb. Having to pay to watch on line here in the UK as it is not showing here yet but loving Seaason 8 so far. Well done to all the Bones cast and crew. Still love this show.
