Bones > Bones Review: You Slept Under a Bridge? > Comments Page 2
OMG. My Bones friend told me about this review/comment section. So glad that fans are speaking out on how horrid Brennan was AND not drinking the Hart Hanson kool aide butt kissing that has been going! Yes!
Yep put me in the I HATE BRENNAN TRAIN too. She was a total bitch to Booth the entire ep. She tried to push him out of Christine's life, his job at the crime scene, his role in the house. And for what? cos she's a total egotisical, self centred controlling bitch that had issues after being on the lam, and instead of dealing with them she lashes out on the man she's suppose to love. Really? Booth deserves better than that. Than her. So does Christine.
People are hating on Brennan because she deserved it. Fans give Brennan the pity party of being abandoned as a forever excuse to treat people like crap. Well she abandoned Booth. Booth was abandoned too by her and his own dad. Yet she doesn't give a crap to how he coped being apart from her and Christine. Or how he felt being left behind. I throughly hated Brennan in this episode.
@al Don't be so ridic. What do you live in the 19th century? People have babies out of wedlock all the time. It's not a crime or hateful. What a narrow minded 'insert your own cuss word' you are. Wow.
Brennan being Brennan is what this show is all about -- that and her relationship with Booth. Booth is in love with Brennan not just knowing the way she is, but by how interesting that makes her. And she's always trusted him when he's said something was a certain way -- except, and because of how much humanity Booth has brought to her view of the world, she is getting her own experience (like, besides seeing cartoons because she has a kid, since she learned how to make pancakes, wanting to make pancakes for Booth -- not to take his job, but for his praise). What's Brennan-like is not thinking of anyone else's feelings because she relies entirely on logic (except it's not entirely true now).
I think it was a fun episode and look forward to more fireworks in the future!
People who are mad at Brennan: her personality is rooted in abandonment and fear. The writers are doing a great job of carrying that forward to her current life with Booth and Christine. She has severe trust issues which forced her into independence as a child, she crushed painful emotions with logic, and those tools have worked very well for her. Her own abandonment makes her a control freak mom, and cuts Booth out. Again, the writers have done a great job.
And Booth, for whatever reason, keeps having babies with women he isn't married to. You want to be angry, hate on that.
A predictable but necessary episode... The scenes between Bones and Booth were very well written and acted and all the tension has well played and well resolved... Everything else, however, seemed to cut and dry and perfect... Everything fell into place in the case with hardly a hiccup... Glad to see Finn back in the lab... He was my favorite squint intern last season and still upholds the title (although Clark did have a nice run last week)... Also, my man Sweets was perfectly on point this week... Its always great to know that he's gonna be solid every episode... (7/10)
I am surprised that so many of you hated Brennan so much this episode.
Yes she wasn't the nicest person but neither was Booth. They were fighting and in fights you say things you don't really mean.
Brennan asking Sweets for help was a great thing in my opinion. That and the comment that she is willing to do irrational things to prove her love shows how much she cares about their relationship. I thought it was a great episode and I will definitely be watching next monday. I hope you guys will too.
Who the would want to be in a relationship with Brennan who thinks they are free agents, meaning she can bolt whenever she takes her fancy? No comittment to Booth expect being a continuing control freak biatch it would seem #FREEBooth
If you were a casual fan tuning in I am not suprised that Brennan is getting hated on. She really did come across that she didn't give a crap to Booth, their relationship or how he missed out on 3mths of his daughters life. Total writing fail.
@wendi Except Booth hater that you are. Your dearly beloved Brennan Bitch said that she hated her life on the run. And it was a prison to her. That's right "got away with murder smarmy smug Max" is so much better. Oh please. Shssh...
I be totally happy if Booth got joint custody of Christine and found a new love. He is way to good for Brennan. Let her live the lonely iife she is drawn to.
What I can't get my head around or reconcile is how Brennan in the premier hated her life on the run. She dearly missed Booth. She showed Christine photos of Booth.........to this selfish insensitive b*tch in the 2nd ep. Who didn't care if Booth was a part of her life. That she would do it alone. That she couldn't grasp how much Booth missed Christine. That it hurt him. What kind of Vulcan is she? SMH
It's about time Brennan rebelled against control-freak Booth. He's so controlling and she's been more than patient, especially since her pregnancy. Being on the run for a while must have been a relief. Her father is much more adept at dealing with her than Booth. His arrogance is far from charming, a trait Max has in spades.
Most of the posters here seem down on Brennan. If one can't stand to see a strong, opinionated, highly intelligent person - who is a woman, no less - they why aren't they watching drivel like Dancing With the Stars? I identify with Angela, she sees the flaws but loves the person. Booth just wants to change her into his "little housewife" ideal.
The conflict is one of the things that make this show but we need more of Angela, Hodkins, Sweets, Caroline, Daisy and the other characters. Take a lesson from the show "Criminal Minds"... all the characters have their backstory and time to shine.
Moxieggirl, Kayla, Sharon, The Watcher, I agree with your points wholeheartedly. It's the subtleties that many who are fussing and angry with Brennan are overlooking.
Brennan is not the same person and neither is Booth-so to the one former fan who stopped watching because he thinks Brennan is still same "clueless" person should take another look! Wow there hasn't been this much buzz on this site for sometime. So whether agree or disagree, it's good that so many are watching and giving feedback! Good job Hanson & co. and great work David, Emily and the cast of Bones!
I thank you for all your comments. I had decided to stop watching the show because it was turning into a "family" program instead of a "crime" show. But if it is true that Brennan is still the socially clueless person after seven years, there is no reason to continue to put up with her week after week. Last year, i was convinced that Hart Hanson was trying to kill off the show so he could devote all his time to developing his new... The Finder. Well that didn't work out, but he apparently has not given up on taking Bones to the dumpster.
Okay, everyone, this is getting a tad bit silly. After all, these actors are simply delivering the lines written for them -- they are not their own words. And they are not really Booth and Brennan, although the fact that you see them as that is a compliment to the writers and the actors. I say cudos to them all. They had you angry and annoyed and I'm willing to bet that was the plan. It's a great TV show and I'm guessing you all like it or you wouldn't be watching it.
I very much appreciated this episode. It was authentic and mature. I'm impressed that it wasn't tied up in a nice neat bow at the end and that Brennan and Booth acknowledge that they still have a lot to work on.
Married 15 years, my husband and I have been where they are though under different circumstances. It's uncomfortable. You don't know if the relationship is gonna make it or how it's gonna work ... but then you get honest and you go back to what you're both committed to and you get through it; not over it, or around it, but through it. And it's messy, sometimes painful, and it affects the people around you. But it is worth it.
It was good that she went to Sweets, reached out for support. It felt like avery mature episode to me. The ending was priceless … and … again … genuine and realistic... amazingly sweet.
My husband would make a comment about farting, too. That was hilarious. The humor between two people who are struggling is sometimes the glue that keeps th
Wow! Great writing. After reading the reviews I believe you really got people thinking and reacting. I do think you were trying to show Bones working on being a more considerate person. I watch the same show as these other people and each one of us saw something different. Yes it was human reactions. Yes it was two people working on issues. I didn't like how either one of the B's were acting. That's how people grow, by learning what upsets their mates. I agree with the Watcher and Kayla on their prespective. Hang in there. I really like Mr. Abernathy. love this show. How about letting Brennan grow a little more down to earth?
This ep just backed up for me a niggle I have had since S7....Brennan is a total control freak over Christine. She doesn't own Christine. Booth is apart of that kid as much as she is. Yet she constantly undermines Booth's role or input as a father. I really hope Hart Hanson shows more of Booth and Christine bonding, him making plans for her daddy/daughter bonding time. They need it being 3mths apart.
The return of Brennan and the baby after 3 month absence took it's toll on both Booth and Brennan last night and as much as it was a downer to hear and watch, I would imagine that being the kind of people and personalities they both are it was bound to happen. I know that their love will keep going and strengthen the relationship to both grow up in some of their self centered ways.
Booth should just dump Brennan who needs to put up with that self centred jerk day in day out? He deserves better. He really does. He should get custody for Christine too. See how well Brennan likes beinh on her own.
I don't think I will ever forgive Brennan for saying to Booth she was fine alone, that they were free agents. She hit a new low. Booth should show her the door. How can you live with someone. Love someone who thinks that about your r/ship.
The way Brennan was so cruel with the Carousel was what made go F.U. Brennan. Booth loves taking his kid Parker to the park, to the Carousel. She knows that. She witnessed that. Yet she couldn't get it through hes thick cruel brain why that would be important to Booth. Why he wanted to be there.
@kayla Brennan was undermining Booth right from the start. She wanted to cook breakfast. Even though it was Booth's thing. She took over the crime scene even though that's Booth thing. Hence why Booth took over her thing at the crime scene. Every thing Booth did was a reaction to her being an insensitiue jerk to him.
