Bones > Bones Review: The Perfect Crime > Comments Page 2
Gah the picking over every little thing on Bones lately is getting on my last nerve. ...Do I think Brennan will believe in God now? NO I don't. She is a still a woman of science and everything that happened to her during meeting with her mother could be easily explained as just a vivid dream with a combined rememberance of her own buried deep memories ....Do I think that Brennan as a partner to Booth and a parent to Christine needs to lighten up a little, stop being so controlling and be a little more fun and not to live her life experiences with them through the guide of a science book? YES I do!!! ....and that was all the ep was trying to say imo. Stop and smell the roses love.
I was surprised by such a negative review for The Shot in The Dark, as I really enjoyed this episode. It had sweet moments between Booth & Brennan, the Jeffersonian team was highlighted as they worked together to solve who shot Brennan, and the interesting science casework and discovery of the "blood bullet". I didn't think that Brennan's rational history was re-written. The science part of Brennan will strongly continue to guide who Brennan is, but her "near-death experience" will help her open her up to other views. Obviously Brennan won't change overnight after almost a lifetime of rational thinking, but the effects of the experience will act as yet another stepping stone in her character growth.
loved the episode, the love between Booth and Brennan was beautifúl, it shone brightly and made me smile.
Dear some fans if you aren't enjoying watching Bones anymore then find something that you are enjoying to watch....Move on....The show is what it is now. and the writers will do what they want want and they don't need to consult the small % representation of the loud online fans footstomping, when they see 8M+ (current viewership} online posting then maybe they will take note..... Bottom line, nobody is forcing you to watch it, it's your choice. Life is too to short
If you don't watch Bones, have not watched in a while or not watched this episode then your point of view and opinion of the show currently and saìd episode is completely INVALID and quite frankly you have too much time on your hands trolling websites for Bones articles and reviews to spew your distain. Get a life.
I loved most everything about this episode. It moved me. No one said Brennan was going to change completely, or that she only became brilliant and studious because of her mother's comment. What would be so bad about her working to become more spontaneous? Bren doesn't say she now believes in God. She doesn't change completely. With decades of living as objectively and unemotionally as she has, her neural networks are hard wired to be the way she is ... Brennan knows this.
The case - the blood bullet was brilliant. I expected to see Booth a little more visibly distraught at the hospital by shedding a few tears. I have watched the episode three times ... catching new things every time.
The experiences with her mother were supposed to be fantastical. I think we will see that some of the very poignant things she said will give Brennan a lot to think about. 1)That leaving her daughter was extremely difficult for Christine, and that it basically broke her heart 2) That Brennan thinks s
En las entrevistas que he leído, no se habla de que Brennan cambie completamente; yo simplemente lo veo como el capitulo para que ella cerrara esos cavos sueltos y esos vacíos de tantos años por culpa de sus padres. Me gusto mucho el capitulo.
THANK YOU for your review! So many people have been keen to jump on the bandwagon of 'changing' Brennan to fit what Booth thinks is ideal. What have they been watching these past 8 years then? I, for one was PO'd that Booth once again made insensitive remarks about Brennan's persona (which he does more often than ppl think). But yes, I chalked it to a couple's fight where it's normal for people to tend to say things they don't mean just to get a reaction. But this re-writing of Brennan's history is beyond ridiculous. How did she go from a gawky teen being bullied in high school to 'making out in closets' as hinted in the Dancing episode? Or in this episode where she's said to have fought with her mother over a boy? Wasn't it implied in earlier seasons that she was a genius since she was a kid and had limited social skills? They are re-writing her character and it's irritating that they think we're that stupid to buy into it when they've already spent years building a backstory for her.
I feel sorry for Bones for fact she is an atheist. And Booth is a christian as you could tell he was praying a couple of times during Bones' out of body experience.
Enjoy the show!
I guess the one question I've always wanted to ask The rational side of Bones, is science has proven that you CAN NOT destroy energy! It converts from one form to another but can not be destroyed. Our bodies are controlled 100% by electricity. Every thought you have and every muscle that moves is because of electricity. So Bones, what happens to the electricity in your body when you die.As a scientist,she has to have some theory about it and as rational as she has been all these years,I am stunned as to her lack of faith. if this ep. can make her wonder a little bit more i'm all for it.as for frozen blood.What a concept. Over all I thought a good show.i see no problem with Bones growing and widening her views on the possibilities of the unknown.
This episode was wonderful. I don't understand why you people think it isn't as good since they got together. I for one think it has made the show so much better. Last nights episode was beautiful. It gave us insights into why bones is the way she is,gave us some sweet moments between bones & max & showed us how deeply booth loves bones. If you think the show has gone down hill so much why do you continue to watch & berate it. Just dont watch. Apparently America doesnt agree with you since it's got great ratings & finished 2nd in the 8pm hr,1st in the 8:30 & had over 9mil viewers last night & is renewed for season 9!!
Too much Sweets!! Apart from that I enjoyed the show. I always like seeing Ryan O'Neal.
The spark is gone from the show. I liked it better when they wernt together. around the holidays other show are light and lively this one gets really serious. It was the same at Christmas. Two babies and not even a mention of the holidays. Same with valentines day. They need to lighten up
Texasgreatgrams, the point is Brennan's character would not react the way the writers portrayed her, and there is no such thing as an out of body experience (and she did not actually communicate with her mom because she would no longer exist). I can readily understand that you find difficulty following my reasoning, because it is reasoning and not magical thinking. As a former Christian who engaged in fasting at times I am quite familiar with very bizarre dreams so I think I can understand what is taking place in the so-called near death experience (because of the self induced bodily stress as well as psychological stress resulting from sustained periods of intense Bible reading and prayer).
Just a follow up comment to Christine Knight's comment. Why are you so threatened about Bones' "out of body experience"? We don't know what her follow up rational will be. I understand if you no longer want to watch this show, just find it difficult to comprehend your reasoning. To each, his own.
I really liked this episode which seems to put me in the minority. It was good to see Tempe experiencing a situation she can not rationally explain-interacting with her deceased Mom. I don't think this will completely change her world view, but could open her mind a little more to what Booth has been trying to help her see for years-there are things that happen in this life that can not be explained. Looking forward to the 2 parter coming up, starting next week.
I was extremely disappointed and insulted by what the writers did to Bones in this episode. The writers trivialized the rational explanation that so-called near death experiences are nothing more than a dreamlike neurophysiological phenomenon produced by a dying or severely stressed brain. They made of Bones a caricature of the critical thinking atheist. We are led to believe that the atheist is simply misguided and the real reason for her unbelief has a psychological basis in response to childhood trauma. Please!!! One of the main reasons I liked this show (now in the past tense) was because it had a main character that presented a positive image of an unbeliever, instead of the typical representations of the atheist who is so because there is something wrong with him/her. I AM NOW A FORMER VIEWER OF THE SHOW!
As I watched and enjoyed this episode, I knew I was in the minority. Atheist, religious fanatic, or something in between -- there are just some things beyond human understanding, and this is one way of settling one's own discomfort with not understanding. I feel Brennan has become closer to her mother since the day she identified the bones, and Max did say that he was the only one who knew that gift was stolen.
You can believe me or not, but fearing that you'll lose the one you love can make the relationship stronger. When an outsider likes two people who like each other, it's pleasant to watch them grow.
I really enjoy this program.. I have gown to carwe for the complete cast like family. when they hurt.. I hurt...
Well I for one adored this episode. The love between B&B was so palpable it was simply wonderful to behold. I felt this way probably because I want to simply enjoy my favourite tv show as opposed to picking it apart scene by scene every week.
What I am watching on a weekly basis is what I dreamed I might see but was sure the show wouldn't go long enough to actually witness 8 years ago.
Just MHO of course!
I always read the reviews and the comments on this show, but I quit watching it two years ago. I think that the shark has been jumped so many times by now that the poor thing figures the entire sky is made up of jet skis ridden by 50's Greasers wearing motorcycle jackets.
This particular episode sounds like I made a good choice. I love Ryan O'Neal, and Caroline, Wendell, Hodgins and Angela, but I do not love the writers. They need better writers. They need to go watch The Thin Man. William Powell and Myrna Loy could still teach them a lot.
The show is just not doing it for me anymore
too extreme and too contrived
It feels like a huge loss- time to end it?
In Plain Sight went out just at the right time
not too soon
not too late
golilocks- just right
@UM68--I noted it on the Bones quotes page, but since he ended up playing such a minimal role in solving the mystery, it just didn't make sense to me to put him in the review. No, I don't think Edison was involved. Similarly, Cam knew about Brennan saying that the gunshot wound felt cold but Angela had only JUST told her that Brennan was awake. There was no way she could've known that. Bad editing is bad.
I think our culture (and I mean in America, by my experience, but maybe worldwide) has changed so much in the last couple of decades but especially the last few years that what was reasonable/logical when Bones went on the air now needs to be Hollywood-reconceived ... like they did with Lincoln, or a few years ago tried to turn England's virgin queen, who was anything but a commoner, into a lovesick girl-next-door.
I think this show was an attempt to explain Brennan as if she's us. She's not. She's the central character in a show that's been on 8 years because she's not. Who is common on the show? Hodgins? Angela and her father? Sweets? Any of the squinterns? How about her father, a stone killer who bowls in a league for a team led by 'a horrible child'? The fun is the eccentricity!
