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.
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.
I liked it. I thought that they played the doors opening and closing in the hotel room just right. If as they say there is a death coming to end the season, they do not want to hijack the fans' attention with a premature resolution to the upcoming deeper relationship between Beckett and Castle. Wouldn't it be great to have a concierge like that one at our service? I would love it.
Can anyone tell me why two of the last three reviews of the new episodes of Bones have been inaccessible, and why they lock up the page below them? I cannot find any way to contact the persons who run this website to get them to look into it. There is something wrong. Regarding the show Thursday night, I was not impressed, but neither was I irritated enough to turn it off. So far as I can see, this season has been a monumental clusterf**k on the part of the writers and the producers. Whatever they were trying to do, they failed. I have enjoyed reading the reviews of other fans, and now there seems to be a serious problem with that, too. Felgerkarb!
I don't watch this show. However, I DID watch it the previous race series when the Cowboys were on, and I was absolutely enchanted by them. I knew this week by the tenor of the commercials for tonight's episode that the Cowboys were going to get eliminated again, and I am sorry to read that apparently it was unfair. I only remember two pairs I have ever seen on this show -- the Cowboys, and a mother and son pair. I had been hoping they would win. But considering the kind of people those two are, they are already winners.
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.
