2016 bones challenge → day 1: why you love and appreciate bones Bones is my absolute favourite show because…. well, because of everything really. The show’s beguiling blend of compelling cases, intelligent humour, interesting science, thrilling drama, enthralling love stories, teamwork, and most importantly, the fascinating characters, and their relationships with each other, all together, in my opinion, combine to make this crime drama/procedural/dramedy the unique and very special show that it is. It’s no secret that Bones has been a trendsetter from the very beginning, with a highly diverse, multiracial cast, showcasing awesome ladies in empowering careers, and being one of the few shows out there with an excellent crew/TPTB who are not afraid to write not just one, but two amazing love stories, without having the constant need to showcase unnecessary drama that would otherwise result in a break-up/divorce, to name a few. It constantly defies stereotypes (hello, Moonlighting curse), and even after 11 seasons, is still one of the few shows out there that has, in my view, not at all gotten stale. The Bones cast are so amazing too, and the love and gratitude that I have for each and every one of them has no bounds. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I LOVE BONES, and I will forever be grateful for all the happiness, joy and excitement (and squeals!!) that this wonderful show, characters, cast and crew have brought me for the past 6 years (and counting!).
Reading recent comments on the various Bones articles this week caused my snark-o-meter to kick into overdrive. I decided to write down some of my personal favourites and this is the result:
Is this show still on?
I can’t believe they killed/got rid of Sweets /Vincent/Zack/Goodman I’m never watching this show again
Bring back Zack
There’s too much Sweets I’m never watching this show again….Oh wait OMG They killed Sweets I’m never watching this show again.
I haven’t watched this show since S3/4/5/6 but I feel compelled to comment negatively on Every. Single. Article about it
I write fanfic and although this show has basically been a fanfic written by the professionals for the last 4 years because I don’t like how they have written it I’m going to write a fanfic which would be completely unwatchable as an actual episode.
Bring back Zack
Booth and Brennan don’t kiss enough/ use enough tongue/ we don’t see Emily’s boobs enough/go at it like they are on cable.
Even though they have been a couple for 4 years and are now married B&B aren’t believable because they aren’t shagging like bunnies every single chance they get.
Bones isn’t as good as Castle/POI/Criminal Minds/Greys etc and I feel the need to say as much on Every. Single. Article about Bones
Bring back Zack
Because I personally don’t watch any more they should cancel the show because only I matter
Booth is a bad father because he doesn’t mention skyping Parker at least 6 times every episode
They changed something miniscule that I don’t like so it’s time the show was cancelled because only my opinion matters
Where’s their TV? I must tweet TPTB constantly about this oversight (my current personal favourite)
