Logical would be for Leonard and Raj to change apartments, and Pryia to stay where she is. But it would be truly hysterical if it were Amy. That I would love to see. If Leonard moves out, why would he be coming by any more, though? Sheldon is seriously annoying. I would not voluntarily spend time with him. If the cast does not interact, where is the comedy?
My first thought after it was over was that there is going to be a story-sized space on the next Bones DVD which will be wasted on this. Good review. Am I the only one who has never been able to access your review of last week's episode? I have tried from two different computers, for a solid week. At least twenty times. Yes, you nailed it on this being the first time in a long time that Brennan has displayed genuine emotion. The insane-sounding laughter she has been doing in the car chats between herself and Booth all season has been grating on my nerves. This episode tried to throw in too much setup for my taste. And I suppose that Iraq War injuries will be the next Vietnam vet cliche used to explain various forms of bad behavior and insanity for the next thirty years in television and movies. The idea just makes me tired. I resent the way show business exploits genuine injuries for sensationalism, scary stories, or weird behavior. They just referred vaguely to it, as an excuse why this man can find things. I did not particularly like the way Walter assumed that Angela Montenegro would only marry Hodgins because he was rich, or that the only noteworthy thing about Hodgins was his money. It does not contribute to the portrayal of Walter as one who sees things others do not see. Hodgins's money had nothing to do with them being together. Neither has Angela's love ever been for sale. False note, jarring, right there. I saw the credit for this group of characters being based on some books as it passed quickly across the screen. The author was not Kathy Reichs. This leads me to think that the pilot for this show has been squashed into the Bones world to get the maximum number of viewers, not because there will be further crossovers or a consistent world between the two series. Good. I did not like it. Pity. I have always liked Michael Clarke Duncan. Nope. I don't think I would watch this. I also think that it would be nice to return the treasure on that ship wreck to the citizens of the South American country from which the Spanish extorted it, rather than giving it to the Catholic Church.
Jim G. -- scuse I meant MY first comment on this episode, five below the other one.
Hi, Jim G. If you meant that I was the one who did not mention the tribute to Stephen J. Cannell, yep I did, in my first comment, which was the first on one this episode. If you didn't mean me, never mind, as Emily Latella would say. :-)
This was the episode which convinced me that I am now a fan of this show, and will be watching it regularly. It flowed. The actors are becoming at home in the skins of their characters; the writers are becoming adept at writing for those characters. It is coming together beautifully and while it is bizarre for me to see Jeri Ryan without metal appliances attached to her face (I last saw her on Star Trek Voyager), I have appreciated the balanced way that her character approaches her job. She is an example of a competent woman doing her job well, and without drama. Back in the day, that would not have happened. It is becoming normal. This old lady likes seeing that.
I just read a spoiler which says that the show is looking for actors to play the Captain's wife and daughter, to appear near the end of the season. Doesn't sound good for the Captain.
I too have had my truck opened for me by a locksmith with a blood pressure device. Had I known that would work, I would have gotten out my own, except that the thing was in the house, and the house key was in the truck! Ah, well .... I was most pleased by the subtle tribute to Stephen J. Cannell. I had been pretty upset by his (far too young) death, and because it had not been mentioned on Castle, although he played a fairly good part in the DVD extras in season one, in addition to his on-the-program appearances. I teared up when they mentioned him and paused -- indeed, typing this is making me tear up again. I will miss him, too. When Beckett said "Always", it was indeed a squee moment. The writers on Bones should be forced to watch Castle to learn how it is done. Beckett and Booth are not as smart as Castle and Bones, but sincerity trumps brains. And fortyseven is right. The line about mythology jail had me cracking up.
It would be remarkably stupid to replace an Academy Award-winning actress with the wide age appeal these comments show that Linda Hunt has, with some pretty face that some of us have never heard of. (Me, for instance.) Shane Brennan is not stupid. I don't believe he would replace Linda Hunt unless she wanted to leave, and there has been no hint of that. Nonetheless, I have said it before on here, and it still holds true. I watch this show to see Linda Hunt. Without her, just like every other poster, I will stop watching it and buy no more DVD's.
Key characters there since the beginning: Castle, Beckett, Ryan, Esposito, Alexis, Lanie, Martha, the Captain, and Castle's second wife Gina. Semi-regular characters not there since the beginning, but recurring: Dr. Perlmutter, Castle's first wife Meredith (mother of Alexis). I have no idea. This is a brilliant cast. Messing with it strikes me as dicey.
I don't think it is safe for Jane to move on. If he tries, as with his aborted date with Christina, Red John will most likely take out the next woman with whom he tries to have a relationship, too. Red John wants to punish him, to make him suffer. He will not tolerate having Jane happy, moving on. Previously I have seen Morena Baccarin in Stargate SG-1 television and movie, commercials for the series "V", and Firefly. She really is brilliant, and she does an excellent villain. I would hope that Erica is wrong, and that the jury is not as stupid as she expects it to be, but I do not have a lot of confidence in television juries. She may indeed be back, but it would be wise of her to commit her crimes outside Jane's area of activity. He got her. Very interesting episode -- well done.
