I was socially active in the 70's, and my then best friend was the head waitress at a bar in our (college) town. I was handled quite a lot by total strangers, and I was not the only one. And it was not just in that or any bar, and it was not in just that, or any, college town. I was handled by the director of the place where I worked. I was handled by strangers at fairs, in the crowd. It was quite, quite common. I do not miss it at all. Nor do I miss the 70's.
Unless one is a Neilson family, or polled in some other way, what difference does it make whether one watches them or not "so they can continue to come into our world ..."? But I saw no television last night. I was not home. It was indeed a major holiday, and I was amazed that the networks would run new programming. That was stupid.
I have not yet watched this episode. However, one thought which occurs to me about this missing information which they seemed to imply had been provided is that it is possible that the running time of the filmed scenes went over, and this information was deleted on the cutting room floor to make the episode fit in the time allotted. Many shows have this problem, and include deleted scenes in the yearly DVD's. However, since it is Bones, it is more likely that it is just sloppiness on the part of the writers and show runner.
I liked it -- it was a trip down memory lane. However, one thing which they omitted, which used to be quite common back in that day, was that Harold would not have stopped with verbal flirting and salacious comments. He would have walked over and started handling Lanie. It was one of the parts of the previous decades that I don't miss, not a little bit. They did a fairly good job of recreating a bygone day. The costuming was brilliant.
Good point. Yes, time sometimes flies there ...
I agree that this program was never presented as a romance series, and I don't believe that Jane and Lisbon belong together romantically. An accepted proposal from Pike would seem a trifle hasty, though. Teresa is more sensible than to jump into marriage with a virtual stranger just because the show did not get renewed.
"As always, Elementary never seizes to surprise or entertain me." I think you mean, ceases, not seizes.
Your poll needs to be revisited. There are only two positive choices, and no negative choice.
Interesting idea. I do like having Nate pop up now and then. But considering how fast they had Deeks recover from the PTSD of being tortured, I doubt it.
Michael, we have told you before, many times, on the pages for many shows. YOU are not the one who decides what a "real fan" is. Every show has many aspects, and each aspect can appeal to or repel many different individuals. We do not all march in step to your tastes, nor should we. You really are an annoying little troll. Grow up.
