I've been wondering about Parker all season too, so I finally Googled it.

Bones is usually okay with science, but the 'nearly-published' paper by the intern was way off.

1- When we saw the list of papers, they were nearly all single-author papers. Pretty rare in any field.

2- When a paper is accepted in a journal, it doesn't get bumped off for another paper. Paper are published in the order they are accepted, then typeset, then proofed.

3- They made it sound like he'd be a big shot after he published one paper, like his career would be made. Doesn't work that way. You have to publish a lot to get that sort of status.

Ah well.

Interesting what they did with Parker tonight...

They in-show kind of proved what we theorized in a way... in that, Booth didn't know his son well enough not to trust what was going on. Apparently Booth had no communication with his son during all that fictional time away.. and didn't know his son well enough to believe his son might have had other reasons than secretly hating his sister for acting weird.

The fact that they didn't put any Booth thinking about Parker into episodes for such a long time means it wasn't just a slip of the writing, but that fictional Booth really didn't have any communication with fictional Parker.

Personally... I kind of liked that aspect. Because just dropping Parker back in and all being well would have seemed like a cheat... but they gave a nod to the absence by showing Booth wasn't able to trust his son for better motives, and assumed the worst as the show went on even though we've never seen a hint of Parker being bad at all previously.

I'm sorry to say that "domesticated Bones" is not working for me. The stories seem flat, and I just don't find myself emotionally invested. Contrast this with the on-going relationship between Carter and Blake on Eureka, where a similar "pairing" of the leads is working quite well.

The hacker arc is not working for me, either. Starting with last season's finale, they know this guy hacked into their phones but refused to believe he did anything else and they believe Bones and Caroline Julian are crooks and off the case. This is all so ridiculous. Then, at the end, they let him go because he manufactured a new identity. Give me a break.

Tuned in last night to see what I thought was the premier show of season 8 and low and behold I am a week late. How I missed the first one I will never know ... now playing catch up!
post #608 of 649
Why do directors and producers think people want to see movies and shows shot from POV? I find it disturbing to watch. Tonights episode of Bones is a no go for me.
post #609 of 649
If you did not watch you missed an interesting episode. It worked for me, a little hard to watch- and not due to the camera work.
post #610 of 649
+1. I made it maybe 10 minutes into the show and just couldn't take it anymore. The camera motion was making me literally sick to my stomach. I'm going to encode it and watch it on the tiny screen on my iPod tomorrow.
post #611 of 649
I watched it but I didn't enjoy it. Hope they don't do it again.
post #612 of 649
I watched the whole thing but I didn't like it either, the whole concept was utterly ridiculous. One of the very worst episodes of this show I've seen.
post #613 of 649
I had zero issue with the format as it's not like one doesn't have hundreds of nearly identical episodes. I think you can set your clock based on the first time they question someone in the interview room. Now I wouldn't want every episode shot as such as it tends to restrict the story line but for a change of pace it was fine.
post #614 of 649
Jeez...a quadruple post and AVS won't let me delete all of them. Only one click of the mouse too. What's going on?
post #615 of 649

I liked the episode as a change of pace.  It also reminded me of a MASH episode that was filmed similar.  It's kinda chilling in many ways.

post #616 of 649
Yeah the first person thing was done before on other shows.... but I was surprise the "spirit" was able to zoom in and out, move, refocus and pretty much what a camera could do, so it wasn't that good.. Maybe a bit more believable if the image was still..
post #617 of 649

Tonight is Season 9's premiere. I found this show via streaming which was enjoyable however trying to watch the last couple of seasons not so much... hopefully some new blood this time around.

post #618 of 649
Agreed. Unfortunately, I think Bones is on its last femurs. But it's had a good run. Lots of solid stories. Who knows, maybe it'll show some new life.

I really enjoyed the spinoff, 'The Finder', unfortunately it didn't make it. frown.gif
post #620 of 649
I liked Geoff Stults as the Finder, too. After it flopped, he picked up a recurring role as Kate's boyfriend on "Ben and Kate." He was really good in that role as well. Dakota Johnson (Kate), Nat Faxon (Ben) and Lucy Punch (B.J.) were great in that short lived Fox sitcom.

I liked the pilot better then the show after they retooled it, but it was enjoyable.

It was a little too cute for me. Pretty much felt like a USA Network show.

post #623 of 649
Yes, after the spinoff pilot with the "Bones" characters, the chemistry of "The Finder" never really worked for me, but I liked Geoff Stults. I don't think we've seen the last of him on network television. He just hasn't found a vehicle with any long-range gas mileage yet.
post #624 of 649
We're fans of the show, but I'm kinda ready for it to be over. It looks like they're going to milk the evil man in every electronic device a little more. rolleyes.gif

Did anyone else catch when Hodgins said something about hoping Sleepy Hollow was on his DVR? I literally LOL'd at that eek.gifbiggrin.gif
post #625 of 649
Yeah they are gonna drag the Pelant thing a little more, some sources say 6 episodes or so, I bet just at the break of Baseball championship
post #626 of 649
I hope it's just till the baseball break. I like the show I guess in part because it's comfortable. I know and like the characters, their chemistry is good, and there are enough twists to keep it mildly interesting. If it ends this season I"m ok, but would not mind one more.

I laughed too. They have done it before with this show, especially with them all waiting outside the movie theater.

I have like Bones a lot but the series just ends with the wedding, like Chuck did and Check had a real magic in the chemistry.

My take is enough with their romance... it's been long over due. Not to mention their arch-nemesis which was even worse. Now they have the opportunity to get the show on track... will they? Who knows but at least the over killed distractions should be over.
