Watching this now I get the feeling that before the season started the scene in the writing room went something like this:
Writer 1: So ... how do we reboot this now?
Writer 2: Ummm
Writer 1: I heard Bones is ending next year.
Writer 2: Yeah. Hey, remember the Bones crossover we did?
Writer 1: Ha, that was a dumb stunt! It was funny how the characters were kind of similar though.
Writer 2: Hey, wait a second ...
So now we basically have supernatural Bones.
Crane is Bones. New gal Diana is Booth - complete with kid. Jenny is Camille. They have a "lab-rary". A team of squints - gadget girl is Angela, book lore nerd is Hodgins. The show moved to Washington ...
That said Washington is a more interesting backdrop now for National Treasure hunting and the stories seem less based on rubber monsters. So far. Another uninteresting villain though and the amount of exposition the show is being forced to do due to the reboot is wasting time the show just does not have. Ratings are pitiful even compared to last year.
Should have rebooted to Washington before last season.
