I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows on Netflix streaming while playing pillow and buffet table to the baby. I like well-written shows and love great characters. That said, I have my limits…
Okay, the episode of “Bones” where she has the baby? Stupid, stupid, stupid. On so many levels. Disappointing.
There are a ton of never-happen-in-the-real-world things that happen in that show, true. Most of it I forgive because it’s still entertaining, and it’s just TV, but it’s getting more ridiculous.
Now, I agree with someone else I’ve seen who said that Brennan changes. However, unlike that other person, I like how she changes, and I get it. She got to a point in her life (starting in that first season, really) where she decided to start getting out of her head more. Maybe not in those words, but close enough.
That said, I think Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy threw the show runners for a loop. They got ridiculous with the birth episode. Then again, maybe some people *would* choose to give birth in a barn rather than call an ambulance, and then go straight home to a party. And maybe the B&B really wouldn’t help just because of a wine connoisseur gathering (other than offer a conveniently placed stables) in an obvious allusion to Jesus’s birth, which Brennan doesn’t even believe in, and that Booth would appreciate and read into more than she ever would.
That’s not even getting into the absurdity that was the scene at the prison.
They’re running out of gags. Literally and figuratively. A long-running show, and I’m in the seventh season. It’s currently in the ninth season, right? I’ll keep going until I catch up, and then I’ll share what I think. Well, that’s the plan anyway. There’s that whole writing thing I’m supposed to be dong…
