AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! All the way throughout! One of my new favorite Bones episodes! WOW! Just awesome! Need I say more?
yes, I agree with @serenity about the episode where they identified the remains of the slave ship passengers. I thought the butt slapping part was funny bc it was very "Bones" esque, when she goes for an idea or a concept she doesn't go halfway. I loved seeing all the squinterns together since they have have such different energies when they're on the show separately. I appreciated that each of them got there moment to say where they were on 9/11 & it helped flesh out their characters as well as contributing to the impact of the story. and the end, oh my gosh i was in tears. one of the best episodes of the show they've ever done.
I think people misunderstand the reason Bones upped the sometimes gross-out humor - and that's due to ratings. Especially when it moved away to stand alone from the sweet American Idol lead-in show runners and the writers had to change it up a lot to keep the show afloat in the rather hostile network TV ratings environment. Critical praise doesn't save shows on network TV, especially past 4 seasons/88 episodes (syndication), only ratings do.
As for the episode... it left me speechless. The whole story about the examined was brilliant. They even managed to get in some that signature Bones humor all while staying in the character (only thing I found a bit over the top was the butt slapping of the interns due to sexual harassment laws). It really hit me upon the interview with the first pentagon survivor - after all this guy went through (backstory about his army buddies) he still saved them.
Perhaps the best part is that managed to delicately balance the military vs. the examined.
As was the dialogue. This episode had me laughing, crying, and remembering; that is hard to fit in in a 45-minute span, but they did it, and it was terrific.
Love Bones, and Remember 9/11.
How to work together, and that opens the show up for new things down the road. On to Brennan's coaching. I don't think it was out of character. Yes, the subject was weird, but we all know when she fixates, she tries to relate everything to that topic. And tonight, it was just what this episode needed to balance out the case. I also felt for Bones, because she never let herself just break down and cry. She had to be strong. I think this was a good revelation episode for Brennan, and I hope to get more of that soon. I loved how they portrayed Tim, and I think the story arc about how he died was just amazing. It was sad, yet happy. That yes, maybe he couldn't save his three friends, but he got to save three other people, and now that is what he will be remembered for. Not that he was a homeless who got beaten to death, but he was a war hero who served his country, even when it cost him his life. I was very impressed with this episode, and give everyone a thumbs up. The acting was perfect,
I think that this episode was the best so far this season. It had enough balance between cracking jokes, and cracking the case. I personally thought all the actors/actresses did a phenomenal job. I could really feel their emotion. I don't think Arastoo went over the top, he was just defending his religion. His main point (and he said in an interview because the actor himself is Muslim) was that just because a group of men did something terribly horrific, it doesn't mean that everyone who follows that religion are bad. He stood up for what he believed. I think we got to see a much deeper side of Fischer tonight, as well. Yes, we did see the funny/sarcastic side, but he was the one to start the conversation. (Even if he did start by saying, "In the looney bin...") Every one of the five were starting to get teary-eyed. I believe the writers/producers are opening it up to have maybe more than just one squintern for an episode. No, maybe not every episode, but now at least they will know ho
Excellent episode, one of the best, right amount of balance b/t all characters. Only part that was overdone was Arastoo's initial rant and the butt slapping. Brennan could have still brought the squints in for her team building, but left off the sexual harassing scene. Moments b/t B & B were golden. Loved how caring and emotional Booth was for a person he never knew. Great job.
Finally watched an episode of Bones all the way thru. Reminded me that on that day I was 5 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, watching the horror unfold on tv and wondering what kind of world my baby would be born into.
Well done all the way through.
THAT'S what thia cast and writers can do if they really go all in. Miss that show lately. Thank you.
This episode reminded me a lot of the episode where they indentified the remains of the passengers of the slave ship and Angela made portraits of all of them for the Jeffersonian display. I didn't mind the basketball coach stuff; this isn't the first time Brennan has tried something different (the Jersey Shore episode comes to mind). I liked all of the interns coming together and their heart to heart about where they were deifnitely reminded me of where I was. Like Fischer I was at school, a freshman, whose friends came into class late because they had been listening to the radio. Living in Maryland in a county with one of the biggest naval bases on the east coast, we were all terrified and unsure and I will never forget that. I think this episode did a great job in paying tribute to what happened. The only other show I can think of that has done this is CSI: NY.
