I LOVE BONES!
There are literally millions of reasons why I love Bones but unsurprisingly alot of it boils down to B&B’s relationship.
For some reason, 90% of TV shows out there only cater for people who like the “thrill of the chase”/UST/on-off relationships, and it’s absolutely fine if people prefer to watch that kind of relationship all the time. And we have seen it in the Bones fandom where some people stopped caring about Bones as much when B&B got together. Personally, I don’t get it.
WTF WHY??? WHY WOULD YOU STOP CARING WHEN YOU’RE GETTING THE AMAZING PAY-OFF???
But anyway, Bones is completely unique since it started off as a typical will they/won’t they but they didn’t let that stick throughout the entire show. They actually let B&B be a healthy/committed couple WITH CHILDREN (*cue gasps in TV land!!). They could so easily have decided to play the stupid break-up/make-up game like every other TV show out there. I adore that once B&B got together that was IT. Yes, it may have taken a taken a long time but it was totally worth it because we haven’t had to watch any stupid relationship drama between them.
Back to the children though…REMEMBER 6x23.
Omg how we all lost our minds and then S7 was the land of fluff and unicorns and we just COULD NOT BELIEVE OUR LUCK. And then things just got better and better from thereon.
I remember when we were all excited at the idea of getting to see Christine walk/talk…AND NOW LOOK.
B&B’s son is TWO YEARS OLD. THIS IS REAL. WE GET TO SEE IT ON SCREEN. I will never be over it.
I know every fan proclaims that their ship is the best, which is completely fair and expected…but come on, B&B TRULY ARE THE BEST(:P). Please direct me to another show where we get to see MORE THAN A DECADE of a couple’s deep love with a truly happy ending. I’m not saying that children complete a couple’s love. B&B aren’t the best because they have children we get to see grow up. Happiness for different couples comes in different ways and we get to see B&B’s ultimate endgame which just happens to include children.
I’ve spoken about this many times. but B&B have such a deep and pure love which can only truly be a case you can put forward, when you have years and years of proof to fall back on. Since getting together, their love has only become stronger, the UST days are not the defining part of their relationship. There are so many shows that try to harp back to the “old” days of UST when a couple gets together but Bones has never done that. It’s always been about showing how B&B are better together. In Bones time, B&B have been together for 8 years now (considering that Christine should be 7 in S12)…that is just unprecedented for a show that was all about will they/won’t they at the begininng.
I mean I do understand why people yell about babies/children on TV shows, because often writers don’t know how to deal with it. but that has never been the case on Bones :)
As always, this has been a ridiculously long post which can be summarised in 4 words…BONES IS THE BEST :)
