Until next week, then a new monster lands with a new deal.

I didn't know this was going to happen, but according to the previews for next week, there will be a new show on Monday and another one on Friday, which according to the previews will be the new time slot for Bones. Friday's at 8:00pm ET.

I saw this too. Surprising, though. Does this mean Bones isn't doing well in the ratings? I wouldn't think Friday evening would be where you'd put your best show eek.gif

I think this week's episode is about as good as Bones gets... it felt rather old school. More comedy than drama which they don't do very well. Their move to Friday was planned before the season began. Ratings wise I read the marriage episode was pretty much even with the rest of the season which means the honeymoon must be over.

Been the plan since last Spring that Bones goes to Friday's once Almost Human starts up.

I don't know about the rest but I just don't care for comic book TV. This almost human thing is not comic book, that I no of, but I want everyone in a cop show to bleed.

Did anybody else notice (in this weeks episode) the picture/plaque on the wall dedicated to the squint that was killed by the sniper (a few episodes ago)? I thought it was a nice touch.

I never watched the show until I binged it via Netflix (I presume). Afterwards I have been recording it and I must say I think you could super impose each episode onto the top of the previous ones and you wouldn't even notice. Every episode is so identical you can set your clock by each of the plot lines... such as the first trip to the interview room.

 

It just got renewed however I think they could run repeats for the next season and no one would know. :)

It certainly has become quite formulaic. I think the network execs enjoy keeping the show around just to watch Emily Deschanel say/do quirky/entertaining things every week. I have to admit, that is the sole element that makes me keep watching.

Similarly, I watched Jag for a long time purely just to watch scenes with Catherine Bell in them. tongue.gif

I need your sweet love, Rosetta Stone girl!

I have to admit... I let 8 episodes of this pile up on the DVR this season... then binge watched them... and now I have 3 piled up again.

I like the show... but I don't look forward to watching it anymore.

I absolutely agree on both counts. I find Emily Deschanel's face fascinating.

Also, NCIS-LA has ridiculous plots, but is also has Daniela Ruah.

With you on that. The plots have the NCIS LA bunch working like anything but cops. I never miss Bones

I think what it comes down to is all we just want is reality shows with show business hot chix, except they still look all done up and fabulous for shooting a TV show, just so we can follow them around all day and watch them interact in "situations". tongue.gif Maybe a true show comes along with a compelling plotline and writing, and we are there, too...it still better have a hot chick in it, though!

Not knocking anyone for watching a show because they like the way someone looks... but if I'm honest... it's easy to find pretty people on TV. It's harder to find pretty people that can act... and damn near impossible to find people (pretty or otherwise) on a show that is well written and constructed.

So... I find myself being drawn away from the shows that I only watch because I like the people... and towards the shows where I like the plot.

Dramatic ending to the season last night! eek.gif

I like the show, but it's starting to be a little ridiculous.

Wait, what?

Did the show start getting less ridiculous and more sensible than it was when I was watching it years back and now it's back to being ridiculous again? wink.gif

Considering Bones capped one of the assassination team, and any competent forensics team could tell that, the fact that she is not also under assert is laughable. Did the evil powers repair the damage to their home? How would explain the massive amount of bullets fired? I'm waiting for the nanny cam footage of the shootout. smile.gif

I kind of got the feeling she might be arrested... I mean, if it is a cover up they would have to arrest OR kill her because she was there and saw the guys + killed one of them. I haven't decided yet if the FBI director-dude is in on the cover up. Sure seems like they want us to think he is... so either he is OR he is pretending to go along with things to protect Booth and company.

I'm afraid that they are just re-doing the worst part of the Pelant arc. They knew he was a master hacker but believed whatever was in the computer. Now they are ignoring a ton of physical evidence and believing an absurd story. I assume his boss is the FBI mole since he popped up for this arc.

I don't like where this is going at all.

The only time that has passed since the gunfight is what ever the length of time Booth was in surgery for, not much time evidence, ignored or otherwise.

At the end, didn't the FBI boss say "Take Dr, Brennan into custody" and then the one of FBI agents wrapped her up and forced her into the hallway?

Yes, I was very satisfied with the season finale episode! It's a shame the regular season episodes aren't closer to that level of intensity. The writers really pulled the script in tight for the finale episode.

Where does that creepy song towards the end come from? I know I've heard it before. Is it just from that trailer on that other show with the sand blowing across the screen? I could swear I've heard it somewhere else where the context was very heavy and dramatic.

I need your sweet love, Rosetta Stone girl!

I noticed in the season premiere of Bones there was a mini-reunion of Angel and Holland Manners (former evil executive at Wolfram&Heart)
