“Errrr-- Erm.... Hemsworth I've done before, like, erm-- ... [laughs] He'll kill me for doing this, actually, I better be careful.”— Tom Hiddleston, when asked what other Avengers’ impressions he could do. Then he just went on about biceps again. [x]
I'd put money on it that the same crappy writer who wrote the SUPER awkward and now infamous "sunglasses" scene also wrote that weird, forced "bonehead" scene in the car...
Overall, it was a good episode tonight, but the writing. These bizarre, forced scenes have been cropping up right and left this season. I mean, seriously, SERIOUSLY, did anyone actually understand why they were laughing in the car? Yeah, it was a cute moment. But WHY WERE THEY LAUGHING? Did anyone understand what was going on when Hannah demanded Brennan’s sunglasses? Did anyone think that Brennan is actually awkward enough to think a “localized blizzard” joke is funny?
Whoever is writing this crap is obviously not operating on the same plane as the rest of us. It’s bad, guys. It’s the sort of crap you see in pilot episodes where nobody has quite figured out what the vibe between the characters or of the show in general is supposed to be. No, wait. It’s the sort of crap you read in fanfics written by pre-pubescent girls who have yet to figure out how real people interact with each other and develop meaningful relationships. (Tangent: Speaking of fanfic, does anyone else think Hannah is a total Mary Sue?)
“We have to have a scene where they bond. Quick! Write down something that is a semi-plausible catalyst for them falling in love in less than 15 minutes and has them making babies by chapter 2!”
No, Bones writers. No. This is not acceptable and is shitting on 5 previous seasons of pretty fucking choice examples of believable character development. This is what people have been bitching about this whole season, about things seeming “off.” The writing sucks. In fact, I feel kind of bad comparing this to fanfic, because I’ve read Bones fanfic (no, I don’t even have the modicum of shame required to blush) that does a better job of fleshing out the relationships between the characters in believable and meaningful ways than this show has this season.
For shame, Bones writers. For. Shame.
