Body of Proof Review: Girl With the Dragonfly Tattoo

by at . Comments

Forget dragon tattoos. Body of Proof gave us a girl with a wicked dragonfly tattoo this week. Unfortunately, no matter what her body art, she still ended up on a slab in the morgue.

The medical students in "Gross Anatomy" were only slightly less annoying than their obnoxious professor here. I hated the fact that he had bedded Kate back in the day. She was certainly young and blind but I'm certain she's always been worth more than this arrogant jerk.

Why does Kate have such poor taste in men? I wish they'd either give her a decent love interest or just let her stay single.

Back to Med School

It looked like one piece of Peter's anatomy overrode the other. To think, I was so proud of him when he stopped Dani's advances. I don't have anything against Dani. She's the sexy little devil in disguise and as much fun as Peter's bound to have, he'll have more trouble than he can handle. The worst thing about a work place romance is that once it crashes and burns, there's no where to run.

The murder investigation was pretty good this week. It was a nice mix of old fashioned detective work with the help of forensic evidence. They certainly kept me guessing about the baby. I wouldn't have thought Mitch would keep the child alive but I suppose his only end game was to get his payday. So he broke in to steal the infant and then beat the mother to death with a baseball bat when she fought back. I don't see a jury having much sympathy when he says he was desperate to pay his overbearing little brother's med school bills.

Catching the murderer gave us two great moments. The first being Sam's take down of Mitch when he ran. That was a heck of a flying tackle. The second was Bud getting to find the baby. I know they're kind of hitting us over the head with the fact that Bud's going to make a great dad, but he was very cute holding that tyke.

Why do most storylines concerning character's kids make me want to groan? Lacy's plot tonight was no exception. There was nothing particularly wrong with it, I simply didn't find it all that entertaining. Although I thought it was cute when Megan put her hand over the camera to talk to Lacy and she pointed out that all of her friends could still hear them.

So as we wait for next week's Body of Proof, how much trouble do you think Peter's going to have with Dani?

I'm with the consensus on Peter. It doesn't have to turn out to be a disaster though. As long as they keep it on the physical, no strings attached level (yeah, like that's ever been a successful relationship strategy) it shouldn't cause too much of a problem. I do foresee problems arising between Peter and Ethan. Ethan has a crush on Dani and finding out that she's involved with Peter could cause some tension.

I was DUSGUSTED that Peter kissed what's-her-name in the elevator. They's never even shown any chemistry. Does the show have a new writer?? Before that woman (girl) came on the scene, it was a much more cerebral series. She takes it down by several notches by being stereotypically young, beautiful, and moral-less. She's got problems with her dad? Boo-hoo. Let her start her own series and leave a good one alone. It was kind of cute when she flirted with Ethan, who is sort of a vulnerable nerd, but Peter was totally out of character. All I can say is YUCK.

I thought all ended well except the kiss at the end. That's going to be trouble.

Have to agree with other posters re Peter. Seriously disappointing that he'd buy into the bimbo cop. PUH-LEEEZE! He HAD more class than that but now he's just another gullible male with a short attention span. As for the mother-daughter arc: I really wish Mama would put on her big girl panties and behave like a mother instead of a guilt-ridden wretch, allowing Lacy to manipulate her. The Lacy character has the potential to be very interesting, much as Castles' daughter has been fun to watch--but not unless she finds a streak of reality and quits acting like an obnoxious brat--I just can't dredge up much empathy for either one of them. Great episode--really enjoyed the over-achieving student...maybe she'd make an interesting intern?

Love this show! I didn't have a tv for years (by choice) but bought a little one for $10 to help out with a Miss Hawaii Fundraiser through my niece (Ms. Outstanding Teen). I finally gave in. lol! My other niece in DC said I needed a tv for the upcoming Obama election. (Good excuse). Well, now I can actually watch this show, if and when I order basic cable?? (2nd step of getting a tv) lol! Regarding Peter and the cute little "Wolfette", it makes the show even more realistic! "Bones" has an on-going relationship, and they're even having a baby! Bones is a hit show! Also, Castle had an on-going relationship; Lanie and Esposito (yes, even a bed scene but only both answering cell ph. regarding a dead body). But they keep it on the download even though everybody knows! Anyway, I broke down and got a little bitty old fashion 13 in. screen tv to watch X-Factor (Rachel Crow), Obama election and last but not least, my favorite, Body of Proof! But of course I like Bones and Castle, but I love Body of Proof! As a child,I loved Quincy! Very old show! If you know Quincy, you must be a Baby Boomer like me. I watch Hulu for now.

WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH PETER. THEY HAD HIM REJECT HER ADVANCES IN THE BEGINNING AND I WAS HAPPY THEY DIDN'T MAKE HIS CHARACTER A HORNY FOOL. THEN IN THE END THEY DID, WHY? WAS VERY SAD THEY TURNED A GREAT CHARACTER WITH A GOOD HEAD ON HIS SHOULDERS, THINK WITH THE WRONG ONE !!! (WRONG HEAD)
