Bones > Bones Review: Hooked > Comments Page 2
I'm with farsia and rt--Brennan needed to do something besides look worried. As a life-long step-mom myself, Parkers' actions could easily have been interpreted negatively. Neither parent, however, used their head to discern exactly where Parker was going! Parker DOES need to be seen more often as a true part of the family and Brennan needs to simply LOVE the kid, not analyze him!
Since Sweets is Booth's new investigative partner there is not enough interaction between Brennan and Booth. We only get to see them at home having a tender moment at the end. It used to be my favorite part and it seemed to last longer when they would be out in the city somewhere or at the bar having a drink. Both seemed more comfortable with each other then.
I don't think Brennan should be vilified as an 'evil' stepmother or judgmental person. She was the first to attempt to try to create a family project, so he can better transition into the new dynamic. She also went to Booth with what she had saw because with this new dynamic, it can be difficult to know what the line is as a stepparent. Before she was just his dad's friend and now it is more complex. She simply wanted Booth to talk to him to determine what was happening before anything truly bad may have happened. But you could see the way her face let up when he said they needed to talk about it with him together as a family. Should the 'i'm sorry' have been there, maybe, but she also did the next best thing by saying Christine loved what he made for her.
Oh, also. Booth was uber hot, even taking that fall. Hello wet shirt! Only David Boreanaz could make that scene hot. Kudos. I wonder if David did that stunt. Hard to tell.
Grade: A-. My summary: Booth: hot super caring dad. Parker: coolest kid on tv. Brennan: uber judgemental step mom. Hodgins a raging tool. Sweets: annoying child. Angela: chilled. Cam: flawless.
Congrats BONES writers, you remembered that Booth is the father to two children. *Slow hand clap* Now when writing next Season 8 don't forget it. Everytime the writers don't even try to incoporate Parkes into the story at least more than, lets say one ep a freaking season, you do a disservice to Booth, the family man, devoted father. Even a passing comment on him every other ep would be suffice, and an actual Parker appearance say every 5th ep. Next season, ok?
Yeah. I didn't like Brennan attitude to Parker either. She could be borderline Mommy Dearest to Parker in the future. I wanted to scream "It isn't jvst about your baby Brennan" Booth has got two kids. He loves them equally. Brennan not so much.
I liked the ep. I thought Parker was adoreable as always. Booth adoreable as always: father and son pure adoreableness....I had issues with Brennan who should of apologized to Parker too. She was selfish, seemed to mainly care for Christine and put doubt into Booth's mind about his own son. Booth's gut initailly told him Parker was fine and he was right. So. Brennan. Apologise. To. Parker. Don't be a bitch to the cutest 11yr old ever.
Hodgins? Sweets? Yes you two. Pay attention to Parker, a 11yr old boy, cos he had more maturity than you two in this ep combined....Booth next time? just push Sweets out of the car. What an immature child. LOVED PARKER. MORE PARKER PLEASE. MORE PARKER AND BOOTH BONDING EPS.
I adore Parker. He should be in more eps. Or at least get mentioned more. Booth with his two children in Parker's room was the sweetest.
i was a little annoyed with Hodgins, he acted as a spoiled brat, why should he get all the toys when it will get mommy(Cam) into trouble, not to mention that the rest of the kids can't get any, and with this over use in money will probably never get any. plus, does anybody else remembers that it was established long ago that Hodgins hates all corporation parties! so him being upset that this one was canceled was a little puzzling for me.
on the Parker front, i was really waiting for Bones to have a sit down with Parker and to have the talk in her blunt way which will turn out to be the right way that would clear all the misunderstandings. and i really wanted her to compliment Parker on his intelligence and engeniering skills when the present was revealed.
on an off note, the whole worm thing reminded me why i never drink Tequila! leads to nothing but troubles and worms in the stomach.
I could see Brennan reminding him, as Sweets did, that he is a good man, a good father, and that these things he has are all because of that. Maybe Booth will start to believe - truly believe - that he is NOT like his father, nor is he defined by his own relationship with his father -- that he is his own man, and his own kind of father. She, of course, would assure him that this is exactly the kind of father she expected him to be ... because she knows him - she sees him for who he is ... not his past experiences ... but what they, and his life choices have made him to be. Another opportunity for an Ah hah, moment for Booth. His awe at the end of this episode reminded me of his facial expression while and after he was staring at the stadium seats when he opened the box his father had left for him.
I had a suspicion that he might have been doing something that wasn't so bad ... and, yeah, it was cute. However, as a parent I would still have discussed the lying, the covert pilfering of B&B's belongings, and not notifying the sitter of his whereabouts.
At the end, it was sweet how Booth kept looking at Parker ... as if he couldn't believe how well it had turned out - - and how proud he was of him. I could just see him saying to Bones ... "This is the family I always wanted and never really believed I would have. I'm blown away by that ..."
It was cute ... not astounding. But pretty cool. I liked the murder. I totally enjoyed the humor. And I was happy there was good stuff going on between Brennan and Booth. She looks fantastic, by the way. I loved Sweets threatening to get out of the car while Booth was driving. Also, the subtle - or, perhaps, not so subtle - references in the case regarding how a manly man doesn't share things with others so as not to look weak or not in control. Booth learned from that ... which is evident in the fact that he told Brennan he wanted them together to approach Parker about his activities.
I loved the side story with hodgins. But, the chemistry major in me would just like to point out that his toys are called instruments not machines. I took an instrumental analysis class in college and it was a big no no to call a mass spec a machine.
