@M--I, too, noticed the poor production quality of her performance (say that 5 times fast!). It also happened to her on Tuesday night. I didn't find her performance then to be as strong as the other girls, so I was actually quite shocked to see that America voted for her. It just didn't sound fantastic. The same is true of Tenna Torres' performance from Tuesday. What I heard in my living room was nearly opposite from what the judges claimed to have heard in the arena.
@rush--thanks for the compliment! I do enjoy music and did sing once upon a time. Now I just sing lullabies and "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes" to my kids all day. ;)
Here's the thing, guys. I watch this show because I know how good it can be. Week after week I hope for that. At its best, this show is nearly unmatched in terms of storytelling, likable characters, and interesting cases. But something has happened in the writer's room this season where what we're being given is out of sync, not cohesive, and just isn't Bones' finest hours.
I'm not advocating that Bones stop bringing issues to light. But I am advocating that it does so in a more balanced and less blatant manner. The writers have done it before.
@scandalhooked, I don't think any of us is saying he should get over it, but with the spying on Olivia, he's stepping into psycho right now, not to mention violating the privacy of a private citizen for personal reasons, even if he could spin it so that they seem politically motivated.
Hi Truth--Welcome to TV Fanatic!
@Sa'ad--the writers are definitely incorporating the title into the show, or pulling the episode title from the script. "One for the Dog" was a title that had me all sorts of confused until Huck said it to Becky on the roof. Now it's become my little game. When will a character say the title and which character will it be?
@Sa'ad--I follow his Twitter feed and can definitely see where you're coming from. He's very...firm in his beliefs and has no qualms saying what's on his mind. I loved his portrayal of Alaric on TVD which influences my like of him significantly.
I think I'm off my game, guys. Or the fact that there was an actual victim as a character in this story just pulled at me in a way the NF story line didn't since there weren't kids involved. Usually, I despise overt displays of pathos, but whether it was the girl or the fact that I'm a mom or that as a teacher I had a few teenagers confide this sort of thing in me, something about last night made me hate it less. I hope you'll all forgive me for letting my heart get the best of me. It happens to the best of us, right?
To the point about Cam/Michelle/Finn getting equal screen time, that story existed solely to distract from the emotional heaviness of the rape victim story, so it didn't really rank in terms of importance last night.
@Seriefreak--it looked like a heavy duty "toughbook" style laptop. So now I want to know who was on the diving expedition at the beginning of the episode and what they're trying to find. I wouldn't be surprised if someone went back after the laptop.
I'm almost positive that when Jack and Amanda opened the bench to get the life boat out, Amanda also pulled out the laptop. I'll have to watch again to be sure, but I'm almost positive it was there.
