Episode 7 ended on a high, happy note, we have a terrific arch-villain introduced in episode 6, and the story promise—from what’s happened in the past—is that everyone is at risk.I’m optimistic because the mystery storylines have consistently been strong, but because they screwed up the first real kiss and the first ‘I love you’, I’m not confident that they won’t screw up the love story.Most of the time, it’s been so well done that it harkened back to the days when was great (except with smarter dialogue and better plots!
There are a million little things the writers could have thrown into the flow of the crime-of-the-week.
Oh well, missed oportunities are sad, but at least they're doing a good job this season, imo.
It's the accent, I know, tho he's dropped it now in Alphas, so I've no idea whether of not it's genuine. I meant that he was written to be annoying with his "facts" but he didn't end up being annoying because I liked his character. And his accent is probably real, because he was born in Birmingham, England (I looked it up because I recognized him from ALPHAS.) BTW, I was surprised that ALPHAS was renewed.
I have some issues with that show, but I'll probably end up watching season 2 ...
Something between the characters to click, a passionate kiss, a declaration of love, something big and juicy and satisfying. We got Brennan staying with Booth after a tragedy, going to his bed, and then…nothing. Then, Brennan goes to Angela and is about to tell her what happened…then nothing. They don’t need to jump into bed all the time like Hodgins and Angela, they don’t need to paw each other or talk about sex.
What they need to do is be themselves—and the show producers need to show us thirty seconds more. The writers are redeeming themselves with what promises to be a terrific end to the truncated season seven.
Yes, Allison, I too am still ticked off by what happened to Zack. Some TSTL moments I can forgive, because human beings are consistently inconsistent.
But the scene in the jail required not only her stupidity, but the active buy-in by every single inmate--some of whom, I imagine, would've been in there for murdering pregnant women. Cheers, TK Moonlighting as an excuse to keep your leads apart really bothers me for just the reason you mention: Season 6 as a whole was weak, so you can't blame the whole downfall of the series on David and Maddie getting together. Moore, you could take notes on this too.) I enjoyed the cases and the chemistry the whole cast has, but the writers's bungling its lead pair really ruined the show for me, unfortunately.
I've lost track) in which it was revealed that Booth and Brennan almost had a thing before the start of the series. I hate when books/shows set up a main character as a super special someone whom everybody loves and is loyal to when in reality, the person is an egotistical tool. And yes, so upset there was no big kiss, no declaration of love, nothing. The writers could have done so much better with it.
Also, her reasoned, objective, analytical, don't-jump-to-conclusions-without- facts philosophy is horseshit when it comes to her own leaps in logic without definable proof or when it's something that wounded her in her oh-s0-sad childhood, like Booth's religion, where she immediately loses any semblance of respect much less politeness simply because she doesn't like it. Don't even get me started on Season one's "why can't I have a gun? BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT A TRAINED ARMY RANGER SNIPER/FBI AGENT you dumbass! I was sorely let down as a watcher of the series (and have been from the very first episode).
And every time she calls Sweets “Lancelot,” I want to slap her.
