I hope they have some good reason plot-wise for killing Sweets, he was one of my favorite characters. I'm guessing this is the last season and there may be other deaths as it plays out but this was sad.

Got to say I much preferred the old home set vs. the new. Seems too clinical, like the lab at the Jeffersonian. But that is where Bones spends most fo her time so I guess it would make sense for her to choose a home like that.

No good reason. The actor wanted off the show to do other things.

Did Eric Millegan want to leave? I cannot remember now. He hasn't done much at all on screen since.

HE's apparently also going to be involved in the re-make of the Chevy Chase "Vacation" movies.

Seriously though, he was one of the reasons I continued to watch the show, a show that probably reached end-of-life status about 2 seasons ago. It's still entertaining television, but I'm finding I have less and less vested interest in it with each new character development now. There were so many ways he could have left the show without killing him off senselessly. Sure, his death and the investigation will now propel probably half the season, but since we already have a somewhat reasonable idea of what it is about, it's not like his death is actually some sort of awesome mystery to be solved.

With his brains and his passions, along with Daisy and the pregnancy, there are so many ways/reasons he could have left the Smithsonian without being offed. That doesn't mean they would ever have to bring him back, but at least his character might have found meaningful closure and, maybe he returns for the final episode.

We were talking about Zach actor Eric Milligan. John Francis Daley played Sweets.

I missed who you were referring to and assumed it was Sweets since he just now left the show. My bad.

No problem. I think John Daley made the right call. Being dead on the show is preferable to randomly being turned into a cannibal psychopath. At least Sweets went out with integrity.

Now that I cannot argue with. The random cannibal psychopath acolyte was a very big reach and was pretty hard for me to wrap my head around as far as actually being a sensible development.

Well, perhaps you should ask JKRowling. I can't believe I'm actually considering buying the HP movie box set. Somebody stop me!

I know I know. It's just funny in a lot of shows I watch (cop dramas) the people are fantastically wealthy. From my years of watching House Hunters, their place in DC would be very pricey. Especially after that nice place they had that blew up

Well true, except it more likely to be out in 'burbia land which would probably mitigate the cost ... a little.

I had mistakenly started another thread about Bones and this week's episode. Sorry-I didn't know this thread existed. Anyway-here's my comments about this weeks show.

This week's show (the 200th episode) I thought was an outright HOOT!! It was VERY WELL DONE, IMO. Every cast member played a slightly different role than normal. This was fun to see. And, the set designers/dressers/costumers did a great job to make it look like the mid '50's. Everything looked authentic for the time period. Bone's hose (that had a seam up the back of them), the coffee PERCOLATOR, the furniture, the suits and dresses all were correct. The furniture looked mid-'50's. They had the police calling in on a dedicated call box, instead of radios. People using telephone booths on the street (no cell phones back then). And the characters appearance--Hodgins was the "mad" scientist with puffed up, frizzy hair and Edison had slicked down hair plastered with cream. The women wore dress gloves (I remember that) and petticoats (?) under their skirts. And, the ladies hairstyle were correct for this time, also.

The opening montage shot in the fashion of a B/W newsreel to be seen in a movie theater was great! And, the fonts used for the credits were a good choice to mimic a font used for a real movie.

The cars were authentic and correct for this time period. The only nit I will pick here is that the Chevy Bel Air convertible they were driving had incorrect "driving/parking" light lenses. They were ORANGE. That is not correct--back then light lenses were transparent/white. Orange lenses didn't appear until ~'62/'63. Otherwise, all was perfect.

Once again, I feel they outdid themselves in this episode. They had to spend some extra money to do this. But, I feel it was well worth it. To all who did the show--WELL DONE!

The 200th was a very enjoyable episode.
I got a different feel from this ep. I seemed as though there was less use of Steadycam and more stand and dolly mounted cameras. I dunno, it just felt different to me.

Two would seem to be two too many to me too.
Sarcasm is the sincerest form of flattery.
