Fall 2012 TV Round-Up: Mondays!

I haven’t done a Fall TV round-up in a couple of years, but I was sitting around watching TV and reading . . . something, and then I had an urge for list-making, and we all know how that turns out. The urge for list-making is so powerful it even trumps my other top two … Continue reading

Bones 6X23 — “The Change in the Game” Live-Blog

For all your Bones live-blogging needs. Ahem. – – – I love it when shows take creative risks, especially shows as formulaic as Bones. Now, when I say “formulaic,” I’m not using it as an insult (in this case at least). Bones is first and foremost a procedural, and procedurals follow formulas. It’s why they’re … Continue reading

Bones 6X02 — “The Couple in the Cave” Live-Blog

“So it’s not possible for two people to overcome their differences?” “We couldn’t.” Seeley Booth and Temperance Brennan – – – Two weeks in a row . . . isn’t that some sort of record with me writing about Bones? Even if I do end up missing a week or two this season because of … Continue reading

Bones 6X01 — “The Mastodon in the Room” Live-Blog

“The question is, are you back?” Seeley Booth – – – Hey, folks, it’s been awhile. My life is on the fast train to Crazy Town right now, so it’s a miracle that I’m even here, basically.

A 100th Episode Cop-Out: ‘Bones’ 5X16 — “The Parts of the Sum in the Whole”

“I am not a gambler. I’m a scientist. I can’t change. I don’t know how . . . I don’t know how.” Temperance Brennan – – – I know I promised you guys a full-on recap, but I’m sorry. It’s not gonna happen. Up until that scene, I was fully prepared to do it, but … Continue reading

Bones 5X02 — “The Bond in the Boot”

“I try not to get attached to my assistants. I have learned that even the best ones can disappoint.” Temperance Brennan – – – This episode is standard Bones. Funny, entertaining, and gross as hell, with a little extra something on top. But it was also not typical Bones, because the CIA and spies and … Continue reading

Bones 5X01: “Harbingers in the Fountain”

“I’m back, baby!” Special Agent Seeley Booth – – – Angela’s wonderfully named psychic, Avalon Harmonia (guest star Cyndi Lauper, in an appearance inspired by one of my favorite Bones moments from season three), acts as a thematic backbone for this episode, in which we experience some doubt-inspired non-revelations. It’s Booth’s first case back on … Continue reading
