Words fail me. D.B was great! Everyone was. The final scene. Wow! Now I can see why they are together, now it feels real. I guess I found words. :)
What a great tribute to all who died. Very well written.
It was a great show anything I was going to say people already said it so there is not much i can add.
This episode was so moving I found myself crying just remembering that horrible day. It was wonderful that Booth was determined that this brother in arms would not be forgotten, but his story would be told and his son would know his Dad was not just some homeless person whose death meant nothing. It was cute watching the interns try to "one up" each other-until they each told their 9/11 stories and decided to work together to solve the puzzle of how the soldier died. One of the best episodes ever.
I was touched by this episode of Bones. This episode is one of the most powerful episodes of the entire series. The dialogue was incredible and powerful that I was left speechless by the end of the hour. I sat there and remembered that terrible day in September and I called my brother who was in the Navy and thanked him for serving our country. Bravo to Hart Hanson and company for bringing us an hour Bones that I will never forget.
I don't think I could come up with the right words to appropriately describe last night's episode. Just as it tok all of the Booth, Brennan, Cam and the Squints to work together to accomplish what they did; likewise it took every one involved with breathing life into the show
I hardly even know where to begin with this episode. It was so moving, and poignant, and touching, and inspiring to me. I particularly loved Arastoo's monologue (or "rant" as some have called it), as I have some Muslim friends who were near me in Philadelphia when the planes hit, and I know that they were just as shocked and appalled and saddened by the actions of these extremists as I was. I also loved that he was bothered by the fact that he couldn't put this "homeless man" to rest, as he deserved. Then to have that man turn out to be not only a war hero, but a hero in the 9/11 tragedy as well?
I don't remember an hourly series ever making me cry so much, or reminding me of that horrible day in such a non-sensationalistic and propagandasized way, and I truly appreciated it. And no - I'm not sure those are real words (ha). As for the butt-slapping... that was just Bones trying to understand a societal behavior in her usual endearing, awkward way. BRAVO!!!
This Bones was a wonderful tribute to Veteran's Day, I thought. I loved that Bones is practicing "teamwork" and Booth is supportive and also that Booth was so empathetic to the Armed Forces. I call it a 5-star show.
Very well done, Bones. I had tears by the end of the episode.
I have all the DVD's from Bones. I cannot wait till the next set comes out
with this particular episode. If you watch them one ater the other, you
can see how Bones has grown emotionally. I don't see the butt slapping
as any type of sexual action. Bones would not even think of sex while
she is working. Why do people always think of sex? Can we just appreciate
the story for what it is. When you blame sex for butt slappimg, are you saying that all the sports figures are gay and this is a sexual experience.
I think not..Only if you only have sex on the brain.
I thought last night's episode was Fantastic. It was by far the best episode to air this season. I thought it was amazingly done for the power of the topic! It was true to all the characters, especially Brennan and Booth. It was the Bones that I love to watch.
But I also realize that it was not one taped in season 8, it was one of the 4 bonus episodes that was actually taped in season 7. This to me is what, I think, makes the difference. For whatever reason Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have chosen a path this season that is not putting out the quality of shows that I, as a viewer, am use to. To me they have tried to turn Bones into a Darker Bones, an "Is Love Enough" season, as Nathan has stated. To me it feels like they are forcing the characters, and in part the actors, into situations and dialogue that is not true to the show or the characters.
There is a reason that my 2 favorite episodes from this season, have been 2 of the 4 bonus episodes taped last season (the o
This episode was so well written and acted that it left me with a longing to want to do something. If it can move us to action then maybe that was the purpose all along. Not to just recognize the problem but to be part of the solution. Bones is an exceptional program and the actors - all of them - the writers, producers, director need to know that this kind of show is so worthwhile. My father in law is a veteren and he gave everything in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Thanks for this wonderful episode.
Personally I am getting really cheesed off that we won't be getting Bones Season 8 here in the UK until early in the New Year. I have been a fan of the show since the pilot and despite it's ups and downs remain loyal and will continue to be so until the finale.
I am really missing the show and am going to have to seek legal on line viewing. Why can't the show be available on iTunes or Netflix? I am also a 'Castle' fan, which also is not being aired here until March next year, but at least I can keep up to date with that show on iTunes the day after it is aired in the US.
It was a respectful commentary on what that day meant to many Americans ... and people all over the world. It seems so many personalities and levels of impact were represented. The performances, Booth, Bones, Camille, Hodgins ... and especially all the interns ... they were excellent in their sentiment and their delivery. Unlike some, I bought the basketball coach twist. Bones would watch a successful team ... read about what made it a success ... and try to hone a new skill from it. IT gave us a reason to have all those squints together. Bravo, Bones!
It was one of the very few TV programs or movies to ever make me cry. It was quite intense and brought back memories of that terrible day. I think the lighter parts were Bones's way of shifting her attention to the "coaching" and teamwork and away from emotional involvement in her actual work. I was glad to see her break down at the end. BONES is one of my favorite programs, but I agree this is one of the best episodes lately.
Great episode. I could have done without basketball coaching as a framework for what Brennan was doing, but her project is a good one: to go back over the evidence, now that there is more data available.
The science was interesting. The drama of a homeless veteran who saved lives -- because that's what he was trained to do -- was excellent. So was the closure for his wife and son. Finally, we see the evolution of Brennan, which is healing for her.
LOVED this episode! It was outstanding!
I thought it was a great Veterans Day episode. The remains of a 9/11 victim, previously unknown, and his story. An American soldier, suffering from PTSD, seeking justice for his dead comrades, ends up giving his life for others during an attack. Truly, an exceptional episode of the show.
One thing about the sexual harassment concern: it doesn't matter what the employer's intent is. If the act is unwanted by the employee, if the act makes them uncomfortable, that can be considered sexual harassment. Obviously for a show like Bones, it's only meant as humor and as 'coach-like' behavior. They aren't meaning to delve into an actual story about sexual harassment. But it is important to point out that that behavior can be considered sexual harassment, because so many victims feel like it's their fault, like they 'misinterpreted' the behavior, when they have a right to not be touched.
This was one of the best episodes of Bones, ever. There are not enough words to describe my feelings, but being from a military family and having lost people on the horrendous day I can only say Thank You for such a moving show.
@andrea--I totally understand your point about it not being actual sexual harassment. It was just...bizarre, I guess. To me. Perhaps not to you. And that's fine. Also, I'm not sure if your comment about Hodgins was directed at me or not, but I didn't say that Hodgins saying no one deserved to die was out of character. I simply acknowledged the fact that he had no conspiracy theories about 9/11.
case as a way to show support of "her team". Also, Hodgins saying "no one deserved to die.." wasn't out of character to me. Even the most paranoid conspiracy theorist can be moved by this terrible incident. Hodgins has come a long way since his angry intolerant days of earlier seasons!
I disagree about Bones slapping the interns on their butts being sexual harassment. Maybe it could be considered weird because she's a woman slapping the male interns butts, but there was no sexual intent on her part and it wasn't continued behavior which would then be harassment. She didn't see herself as "a woman" but just as "the coach" and to me, that's why she did what she did. When coaches slap their players on the butts is it sexual harassment or is it just what's done by coaches to acknowledge their player's teamwork? It's just an action that's accepted in the sports world. (It would be different if the intent was sexual). The interns are used to Brennan being so bold/blunt; she had Edison (I believe it was him) reenact a crime with her lying down and telling him to get on top of her, and then she got on his back and proceeded to reenact choking him, she point blank asked Wendell if he was attracted to older women, etc. She does this as part of her procedure and in this ca
@ Miranda - Yes, moving episode. No, this is not a bad season at all -- but your pointing out Bones would never butt slap ... makes me consider that this is a Bones who is not the same character in season 1, for instance, who supposedly could make a 10 second phone call and a national security person interviewing Bones would be required to sit exactly where she was until government black suits came to gather and destroy all of her interview notes. This Bones has gone from misinterpreted the Guido tribe of New Jersey to watching cartoons with her baby and introducing herself NOT as the world's greatest living forensic anthropologist but as Booth's mate. Happily! And I like this Bones and this season fine!
@Kimber and @Randomcommenter--I actually made a note in my...uh...notes...that Brennan would never slap the butts of interns, even if she were playing coach, simply because it IS a form of sexual harassment. Is it a sexual advance? No. But it's an unwanted touch. Totally out of character even if she was immersed in the coaching mentality.
And I'd forgotten about the slave ship episode until reading through your comments, but YES. That's what I love about Angela, y'all. She's the heart to Brennan's head, making them a fantastic balance.
