In the books, which follow a different story line than the tv series, Debra found out fairly early in the series. She does not like it, but she has accepted that Dexter is a killer. The way that the author has led her to the discovery and to her acceptance makes perfect sense. Perhaps the writers on the show could take note?

Who Will Die on Bones This Week?

Oh, please! Let Sweets be the one who gets killed! I just re-watched the first Lance Sweets episode on DVD, and I still loathe that character! Otherwise, Daisy would be nice. Take them both ....

I teared up and dripped during both of Ralph Maccio's dances. I so admired his bravery for being out there at all! But I did not vote for him. I think he will be voted off this week. He said the doctor told them that the leg should be healed in two days, but what if it is not? Either Romeo or Kirstie (probably) would get voted off in his place, and they can keep dancing without the audience holding its breath. I don't think Ralph can. A few seasons back, George Hamilton had leg issues which inhibited his ability to move, and he did not last. This is an endurance test, as well as a dance competition. I just don't think he can endure. But he really won my heart last night.

Hart Hanson should do what Andrew Marlowe tells him. At six years, this has reached ridiculous.

I agree with Angela. The so-called Moonlighting/Cheers curse is used by imagination-dead writers and producers, when they cannot figure out a way to sustain interesting and complex characters without the drama of will-they/won't-they at their disposal. The writers should go back and watch some of the best movies of the 1930's, the ones with William Powell, Myrna Loy, Carole Lombard, and their ilk. It can be done, but apparently it takes better writers than now exist in Hollywood to do it. These people have destroyed an entire season with this felgerkarb, and now they are supposedly handing us another switch? Lack of imagination is killing this program, and removing the fan base hand over foot. I am disgusted.

I like Deeks, but I watch this show for Hetty. The rest of it, phtah. I said before, and I still maintain, they cannot possibly be stupid enough to dump an Academy Award caliber actress for a nobody, unless Linda Hunt WANTS to leave. And why on earth would she?

Logic would indicate (to me, anyway) that if Sheldon is getting a new roommate, as is indicated in your spoiler, then Leonard is moving out. The only reason I can think of for him to do that would be for him to move in with Priya somewhere. Since the spoiler says that Sheldon will have a new roommate, and since Priya currently lives with Raj, and since Raj has to leave the apartment when Leonard is over, it makes sense for Raj to move in with Sheldon, and Leonard to move into Raj's place with Priya. I can see the comic possibilities in this. If Raj is not still working with Sheldon, then I missed the episode where he got some other job. Having to spend 24 hours a day with Sheldon would drive even Raj nuts, I should think, and I think he is the nicest guy amongst the four of them. As the show was renewed recently for three more years, they can't get Leonard and Penny back together again too soon. They might spend a season tormenting Priya and Leonard with each other. That is my guess about that, anyway. I was at a friend's house to see this episode, with a big screen tv. I loved the coffee house scene. Hysterical. I've been in some of those bathroom conversations. It sounds like they may have a woman writer on staff. Good job.

I was bemused to see the JJ haircut on Seaver. Also, I believe they said that the daughter his wife drowned herself with was his step-daughter, not his daughter. I may have mis-heard that.

Rigsby offered to transfer to another office. He would have done anything to keep Grace. I thought the episode tonight was better than the general run of them lately. I was interested to note that the first time Rigsby went to his father's house, Rigsby Senior told him to go away, but turned around and walked back into the living room, leaving the door open. This relationship is way more complex than they even showed. If Grace marries the boyfriend, it will probably turn out badly. He showed himself gutless in the shootout a few weeks ago, when Rigsby debated whether or not to tell her that her lover turned tail and ran. That is something I would want to know about a man I was considering marrying; Rigsby took the high road, given his feelings, but I don't think it was the right one. I haven't seen any leaks or spoilers on this one, so I have no idea what will happen. Everything has been about the person who dies, not about anyone getting married. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

Bones: Renewed For Season Seven!

I hope one change is that Emily Deschanel, or at least Bones, gets rid of that appalling haircut. It is too sophisticated for Brennan, and it was jarring to see the character come back from six months in the jungles of Asia, and promptly get that haircut. It is not Bones, and it is very irritating. I have never gotten used to it, because it so much does not fit the character. Of course, the character has changed a lot this season, but she has not gotten more sophisticated in a way that would make that style logical. If they do not fix the serious problems they created this season, I don't see Bones lasting beyond next season. It used to be wonderful. Now it looks amateurish in a lot of ways. The actors still do not seem very invested in their characters any more, either. Deschanel's laughter as Bones is often hysterical, and sounds forced and false. I don't believe that was the intention; it generally does not follow from the scene that she is forcing a laugh. It just comes out that way. I can't imagine she has forgotten to act, so I am confused. They need to figure out a way to bring back Zack for his yearly visit. Those episodes are usually pretty good, any way. The one group still doing stellar work is that company which makes the corpses for them. They have never slacked off; the bodies are still standouts. I enjoyed the various corpses in the Body Farm episode last month; it reminded me of what I have read about the real body farm in the East. The Finder episode was a waste of an opportunity to have a Bones story. The best episode this season (for me) was the one where I got to see the Gravedigger's head explode. Then I went back and watched all the Gravedigger episodes on the previous DVD's. That actress was about the most godawful killer I have seen since the first time I saw Dirty Harry, when it came out in the theater. The villain in that one scared me for the next ten years, whenever I saw him in anything. She is that good -- I can never believe her when I see her playing another part -- I expect her to be the villain again. It is pretty sad when the most memorable performance of the season was a very short one from a guest star getting killed. I will continue to watch, but this isn't my favorite show any more. It isn't even one of them. Pity.
