TV Friday--Bones

I've been a huge fan of the TV show Bones since it premiered back in 2005 of Fox. It's been an amazing run over the last five seasons. Forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan and FBI agent Seeley Booth have had an awesome relationship. All the supporting cast like quirky and fun and free-wheeling Angela and conspiracy theorist and genius Jack Hodgins. All of this has made the show one of the best on TV with character development and great acting and stories.

Except what has happened with season six???? It's been tragic to watch the writing go completely down hill this last season. It's almost as if the actors don't care anymore...their acting has been pretty subpar and the writing? Well, they've made Dr. Brennan a laughing stock now. She's been so socially inept for the first few seasons but she was starting to come into her own until this season... She's saying really awkward things that she just wouldn't say and do. I don't know. This rant will only make sense for those who have watched the show faithfully but I just needed to say my piece. I'm really hoping they get things turned around soon. I miss my favorite show.

And for those who are fans...am I just losing my mind? Or do you feel the least bit disappointed in this season like I do?

Anyone have any shows they love/have loved that started or are starting to go downhill? Would love to hear about them.

  1. Completely agree! Have been a fan of Bones from day one. I kind of heard about what they were planning for this season, however, and I must admit that I quit watching because it sounded so horrible. I have caught the last couple of episodes, and even they were super awkward and a little creepy (not in a good way), which is really depressing because the reviews said that they were some of the better episodes this season. It makes me relieved that I skipped the first 10 episodes. Yikes. If it doesn't pick up quick, I may just quit watching totally. Sorry, Bones writers, you dug your own grave. (Ha, ha, no pun intended!)

  2. I have watched this show off & on over the years, but quit watching this season with the addition of Hannah. If you don't already read Linus's Blanket you should check out her rants on the subject. Here's a link to the 1st one, but she's written a few on January too and you can do a search on her site.

  3. I don't watch the show but it sounds like maybe they got new writers. Or they were not sure how to keep moving the show forward without "jumping the shark" as they say. So frustrating when a show you like takes a turn for the worse.
