Yes, thoughtful posts, gals.

But I'm still spitting.

If this upcoming season doesn't show improvement and a return to the quality of writing and consideration of all the Bones characters, I'll join you in that activity. We'll have a contest to see who can do it the farthest. :mrgreen:

And then we'll go kick Hart's butt. ;)

I'm impressed with your reasoning, Tara, and your positive ideas. I am getting slight stirrings of interest for S4 now, thanks for that!

A propos of nothing, I've now merged the Bones spoiler thread with this one. At first glance it doesn't seem to disrupt the flow much, if at all. There is probably enough spoilage in the Bones forum, as people inevitably comment on material others haven't yet seen (but at least thread titles generally indicate that).

Sides up for 'The Bone That Blew'. It seems Cam has employed Max at the lab to do some kind of science enrichment class with kids. Nothing J/A though.

It appears that the ep that was meant to be no.4 (approx) has now been pushed to 4.02, airing 10th September. As is rightly pointed out (ta genevieve), this could well screw with the order of the various interns trying out for Zach's place. And of course might cause the sudden, as opposed to gradual, split in the Hodgela relationship. But hey, what the heck; they didn't exactly move naturally toward the wedding decision, did they?

Looks like fairly regular sides appearances are back. Next ep recruiting is 'The Skull In The Sculpture'. It's about art and artists...
I see Roxie has turned up.
Angela's lover from way back.
Now I know the Buffy original was a skilled job, but please don't let this become Willow and Tara! I have too much invested in my bug guy!

You're not telling me they are 'getting rid' of Birimbau in the same ep where he comes to say how much he still adores Ange? Puh-lease.

Late_heart says they straightened his hair?

He always looks good to me, but... the curls had personality. They shouldn't try to make him like everybody else. His character's slowing getting sucked out. That's no fun!

Wow! I like the picture! Like the hair, too, but the curls were very cute, too. It suits him. Why did they change it???

Simone.
Angela: Well, what about love? What do you have to say about love?
Hodgins: It´s overrated-most of the time :-)


Dexter: They make it look so easy-connecting with another human being. It's like no one told them it's the hardest thing in the world.

Has there been a change in script? That's sure what it sounds like. And that little spoiler about what happens after the divorce... now that might be fun! (I imagine it will be Cam, don't you think?) If Birimbau grants the divorce so quickly, what causes Jack and Angela to break up? Why the hell do we need an ex-girlfriend (of Angela's) thrown in the mix? Just because the writers want to feel like their show is hip and cutting edge? Why not bring in an ex-boyfriend of Booth's? (yeah, I know it would be out of character, but why is it always the girls and never the guys?) Now we have ironed haired Hodgins--although you still can't diminish his handsomeness... I'm soooooo tired of all this crap!!!

Not been in here for a while, as you can see by the facts that I have not commented on Hodgins' hair being reassuringly normal so far and that Birimbau has indeed been disposed of, albeit in a rather unsatisfactory way. A side or two (can't recall) did go up for Con Man in the Meth Lab, but nothing of significance. I am, however, commenting on Passenger In The Oven, http://community.livejournal.com/bones_spoilers/which is just up, because it has Roxie in it, yeurrrgh, and Hodgins in conversation with Angela uttering the dreadful lines that "sometimes you have to give yourself completely, not hedge your bets". And he "wants her to be happy, he really does". *beat* and Angela says "Thanks".

Now there is not the slightest doubt that TJ will render this utterly convincing, but omg it looks poor on paper. How many times during S3 and the end of S2 did you say of Jack and Angela 'but real people just don't talk like that'? Please come forward if you can think of a better way to write that scene without smashing us in the face!

Of course I may be infinitesimally influenced by the brilliant book I have just bought which traces, through his emails, Russell T Davies' writing of 'Doctor Who' scripts. There is a section where he bemoans lazy writing beloved of soaps. That 'thanks' ending, followed by an exit, is something he particularly dislikes, along with phone calls where no-one says 'goodbye', arrangements to go out for the evening without a mention of a meeting place or time, and break-up exits where Person 1 does not stir to follow Departing Person 2. He's not keen on flashbacks without a very good reason either (this is one of my main beefs with HP & the Half-Blood Prince, and I reckon it will show in the film when it's out, the fact that it's nothing but flashbacks of Voldemort's history to fill in what we don't know). But I'm straying offtopic. Not keen on the engineering of Roxie's presence - will we learn Angela's real name though? - or the clichés in our lovers' mouths. Talking of which, Ange and Roxie's somewhat forced parody of the Romeo & Juliet balcony scene with references to risotto had better be funny and well-acted or I'm not going to like that either...

It'll make a change to see a supporting co-star's character turning gay after being with men for the previous 3 seasons. It's soooooooo original! I think it's called "the Willow effect".

Why not bring in an ex-boyfriend of Booth's? (yeah, I know it would be out of character, but why is it always the girls and never the guys?)


I agree so completely, Rebecca. The writers get kudos for having a bisexual character on the show, but why did it have to be Angela? It irritates me both from the 'adventurous artist' easy angle and from the 'all 'girls' experiment' and 'girl on girl is every guy's fantasy' angle as well.

Lazy, lazy, lazy. Now if they made Caroline bi, or Brennan, I wouldn't be so dissapointed in them. I'm already shuddering to think what Booth's reaction to A/R is going to be.
...he remains Hodgins of the unstoppable libido, with the constantly coiling Kundalini, the freaky twist of mystic master meets geekzilla. He’s still a poet, a shaman of the weird, and he’s in there, somewhere...
