Bones > Bones Review: Derby Girls Just Wanna Have Fun > Comments Page 2
As far as the roller skating, this was fun and especially having Angela be the derby doll. I liked the fact that they used Angela and let her run with her questing for identity. I love Wendell and Hodgins together. They are really fun to watch as they banter back and forth. Cam was good in that she loves Seeley and wants to be a true friend. The introduction to NF certainly was different and I really think they could have handled the entire hospital thing better but I did not know a thing about NF and now I do. I am aware of it and will try to be better informed and let others know. As episodes go this was a 4 out of 5 for me. I love the fact that Brennan really is learning how to give Booth what he needs in support and allows him to be Booth and not criticize his beliefs. My roller derby name would be Smiley Wiley. Ha, ha, Moxie Girl you need to give us your name.
It was an awkward set up for Booth, however much in keeping with his character it is. I wish more had been made of the fact that he hasn't been to confession. For a man of such deep faith, I'm surprised that this is not tearing at him inside.
This storyline of Hodgins and Angela being broke is odd to me. Doesn't he own the Cantilever group? How do they not have accounts in FDIC banks ($150k protected per account in those banks), or safety deposit boxes with money stashed or even overseas secure accounts in Switzerland or the Caymans? I'd expect a conspiracy theorist like Hodgins to have at least accounts accessible only by voice recognition and so on, and to horde cash. But I did love Wendell giving back the nude Angela painted of him with boxers added. Two thumbs up, Wendell. He's always been my favourite squintern too.
I feel like there's a comment missing here, but I'm not disagreeing with Booth not wanting attention for what he was doing. That makes sense for his character. He doesn't see himself as anything special or as the "great guy" the others see him as.
@Samthwoo--I wondered how parents of children with NF would see last night's episode. It felt like a generic commercial to me instead of something informative and awareness-raising.
Next week looks intense! And as we have come to expect, I am confident #Bones will not disappoint!
Smacky Kennedy - FABULOUS NAME!!!! I was hoping the kiss was going to be because she was trying to stave off advances from another Derby Doll - trying to show that she really was into boys, not girls ... However, the request for a second kiss was hilarious! True Angela form.
I do agree that the aura around the hospital visit was over-played, though very in character for Booth - something he would actually do. I would have loved to see him later talking with Brennan about it in bed, as in many of the great closing scenes we've had this season. I LOVED that Brennan could quote the bible verse. That reminds us that she is intelligent - has invested some time in researching faith - and that she understands how important Booth's faith is to him. I love Ms. Wicker's suggestion of having the team help out with the carnival!
All episodes cannot be our favorite ... and they can't all be as intense as some of the other S8 episodes. We need this break, perhaps. Next week ... now that looks
I liked the episode! I knew nothing about this disease, so any info was helpful. This was something typical with Booth--he is a great guy and one who would want to keep his charitable deeds secret--he tries to live his faith. The conversation with Sweets about living with Bones outside of marriage would be an uncomfortable subject with him--he wants to do the right thing, but he's not going to press Bones; he'll just wait till she's ready for commitment. And he sure wouldn't want to discuss it with Sweets. I loved Bones' support of Booth and loyalty to him; she's learning how to live with this man. And Angie as a roller derby queen was very cute and entertaining. I thought it was a fun episode--true, not the most gripping ever, but fun and different. My derby name would be Roller Queen Robin!
Thanks for the quote @Michael -- that was the phrasing I remembered a little.
Welp seeing as Ihave a kid with nf, ep was not very informative. Just a basic rundown. Thought they would have given it more attention, but that's just me

“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
@Linda--Yep. Total filler. Not the worst filler of the season, but yes, meh. I think the kiss was largely because Angela was drunk but also goes to her story this season, which is figuring out who she is now that her identity has changed. I can handwave it away.
@Lori--Yes. There is so much more that could have been done with that story. SO much more.
@CroLuva--I think Bones would've known the verse anyway because she's that well-versed (ha) in world religions even if she's not a believer. And my derby name would be....Magic Miranda.
oops, lets see for my roller derby name.....gotta be Captain Moreisgood ;o)
Loved that Bones knew the bible verse! Show's she trying to understand Booth! Loved Smackie Kennedy, but I agree they could have played the NF story alittle better...
It would have been more interesting if they went further into what Booth was telling Sweets about not being able to go to confession because he was living with someone out of wedlock - maybe the charity work is to compensate? The topic of marriage could have been brought up...
FILLER, FILLER, FILLER, not the worst ep I've seen this year but meh. Of course, Booth is heroic, sweet, nice guy. Cam & Ang were obnoxious, too nosy, B & B's business is none of theirs. Hod a bit douchy too, but he recovered. the kiss was absolutely not needed in the storyline. The witness had passed out, just something to titillate us with. ugh, did love Bren in this ep, total supporting of Booth, that's my girl.
