Bones > Bones Review: Just Toying With Us > Comments Page 2
Wow! What a bunch of critical people! B&B are totally believable as a couple and are perfect together. They have finally brought back the humor and chemistry between two main characters and I'm beginning to get over how awful season 6 was!
Just have to totally disagree with all the negativity on this site. The case may have been a little weak but frankly I tune in primarily for the relationship moments and the cases, although interesting usually, are secondary. If it weren't for the chemistry between B&B it would be just another crime show!
It really makes me sad that the writers decided to skip the courtship and first months of the pregnancy. All the fans who had been hoping for B & B to get together deserve better. I also agree with Kitty that Daisy is super annoying. I,ve been trying to think of a way to get rid of her without sending Sweets off the deep end. He definitely deserves better. In fact we all do.
I totally forgot that this show was on. I happened upon it channel switching at 8:21 (Mountain time), and jumped. "Oh, yeah, Bones is on tonight."
It seems to me that once the shark has been jumped, it swims away, and cannot be unjumped. I have seen most of this season's episodes, as in, all or part of each of them, but I remain disgusted and unimpressed. The relationship between Brennan and Booth is ridiculous and not believeable. There are moments when each actor seems to come alive, and insert some of the spark which we saw in the earlier seasons, but most of the time, the actors seem as dead to each other as they seemed last year.
The relationship felt different after Emily Deschanel married in her real life. What gives?
I thought from the moment sweets said he was getting a firearm i knew someone was gonna get shot! but i thought it would have been both.
for the name i think they will come up with a great name after some long fights but when she gives birth its a BOY! it seems like something they would do, just purprise us and to off put bones since she was all ready to have a girl.
@Kitty I completely agree with you. Whay has Brennan become this stupid again? It's like we're back in season 1. I badly want B-B together, but this is really awkward. They don't conect at all, I don get why they are together like this. Brennan had improve a lot, but she seem an autist now. I don't like the way this is going.
As an avid fan of the books I have had difficulty accepting the characters in this series. They have created Brennan to be almost on the autism spectrum but I have grown to accept the characters as they are. Having said this I have been greatly disappointed in this season. I expect more from this show not pat answers. I like them to be together but this is just two simplistic now.
This episode left me ever more underwhelmed than last week and I didn't think that was possible. The nauseating playing with the doll scene by Brennan and the God awful Daisy all in one episode. Now, that's a character I'd pay to see killed off. Daisy is so incredibly annoying. I cannot understand for the life of me why she is still on this show. I hate how robotic Brennan has become. No one could really be this clueless, especially after all these years of working with Booth.
Savannah Joy Brennan-Sealy or Sealy-Brennan. Booth is a decandent of John Wilkes Booth, so that how I came up with the name. But anyway the episode was good last night, we are learning more of what Brennan was like growing up. I hope they don't any thing like death happen to the baby, now it might get kidnaped in a future episode or becomes ill, but recovers. Brennan would like the baby be baptised, because it is important to Booth. I would like for Booth to give a little so that it doesn't look like Brennan is always giving in up on something just so Booth won't be upset about it. At least that is what it looks like to me sometimes. Maybe seeing something that isn't there.
This episode was rather weak. It seemed to be aimed more at the family aspects rather than the case, which may be becoming the norm. I hope it doesn't though. Booth doesn't act as much like the tough guy that he did. I do however love it when they show Michael. He is probably the cutesy kid I've seen on tv. He is so adorable and he even looks like a mini-Hodgins. I actually do hope they show maybe a home seen with the baby and his parents
H.Hanson & crew have boxed themselves into a corner with this year's premise. I am not altogether sure I like the first 3 shows of the season, but I trust things will turn out all right.
My issue is Brennan seems unnecessarily rigid. We are also seeing her & Booth disagree on things that need to be worked out by the third trimester and I think that makes me uncomfortable.
I am sure it will work out but the interest in baby B&B will have to endure the hiatus.
The girl's name will HAVE to be Christine, after Brennan's Mom. (Christine Booth sounds better than her Mom's other name, Ruth. Ruth Booth? I hope not )!
Conflict is what makes a good show, like it or not.
If the baby were to die through some criminal action it might bring them closer together, rather than further apart.
But if the conflict centers around the two completely opposing poles of his religion and her science, then they will be at each other's throats - and THEN, indeed, will they not be able to be around each other.
Baptism is just the beginning. You saw his face when she spoke of dissecting a frog with her daughter. And Brennan's kid is halfway to a borading school in Switzerland already - "because it is the best school, Booth" - "but public school is good enough for Parker" he would say - to which she could reply "but not good enough for MY child"....
And they're off.
At which point they really couldn't keep working together.
Andrea: Nothing's going to happen to the baby. Bones is mostly a very harmless show these days, and even during the first seasons when it was darker, there's no way they would've killed off the main couple's baby. That would be the stupidest thing they could ever do, because the dynamic between Booth and Brennan would be unbearably heartbreaking. Of course people like to see heartbreak every once in a while, and we have seen that on Bones (e.g in season 6 when Brennan had to watch Booth with another woman and in season 5 when Brennan broke Booth's heart), but killing the baby would be in a completely different category.
As for last night's show, I'd say it was a lot better than last week's, which was good, too. The cuddling scene was amazing. I love that we could truly see how close and in love they are these days.
There is no way that they are going to "off" the Brennan/Booth baby just because people think that it doesn't add up to the storyline. The baptism issue is exactly why the story will get interesting. Booth is slowly opening Brennan up to new experiences and acceptance of what is considered the norm and she seems to be doing so, although awkwardly. I see where this is going. I think that the series would lose viewers if something were to happen to the baby because that would most likely split up the couple that we have all been dying to see. Who wants to watch a show where the main characters can't be around each other because of emotional devastation?
On another note, I would like to see them name the baby Joy because that was Brennan's birth name and it is my name. Lol. As well as Emily Deschanel had her baby on my son's due date (I had mine a week early due to pain, on my birthday). I think the writers have the right idea by bringing up this new dynamic to these two after so many
maybe because I didn't really play with dolls when I was little, I found this week ep a little underwhelming. Plus a little too much time for Daisy and not enough of Cam. But next episode seems to be so much fun.
I'd love it if they name the baby Joy
2 weeks? Will it be TWO WEEKS 'till the next episode? Don't think I will make that!
I think this episode was the best this season. I can relate to the battle to put the toy together. Angela's baby is adorable. I don't believe in giving toy guns to kids but Booth and Bones were so cute firing the guns at each other.
You really think they're going to let Brennan and Booth keep the baby? You don't see one helluva horrible episode in the future, where something happens and she loses the baby or it gets born-kidnapped-killed?
There are too many conflicts for them to try to raise a kid together. The first one will be the baptism - can you see Brennen allowing it or Booth forgetting about it?
No, there'll be a heart-wrenching, tear-jerking episode and we'll be left crying....
Brennan's mum was called christine @mina007
@apeck why Christine?
Baby Brennan is SO gonna be named Christine
What happened to Camille? Another underused xter on a show?
