- That was the only problem I could see with it—not only that I would have to forgo “Bones” posts, but that I wouldn’t be able to control any romantic stuff on my dash. I think I could still post “Bones” things on Tumblr; it just wouldn’t be romantic stuff, necessarily (which, admittedly, would probably cut off a large chunk of it, but not everything.)
- The only real problem I can see possibly having (besides the Tumblr one, mentioned above) is that I’d really have to watch what songs play on my iTunes. Usually I just have it on random, but I’d have to make, like, a non-love song playlist or something. Which, I mean, is still doable.
- The more I think about it, the more I like the idea, so I’ll probably start it in the near future. And I’ll update the whole thing on Tumblr as it goes along.
I still can’t reply to replies, but wanted to thank the suggestions for graduation gifts.
I might combine the two ideas by giving her a gift card and putting it in the ID lanyard thing. So thank you!
Baby, Baby, Baby
Babies, babies, everywhere. Actual babies. Booth and Brennan as babies. Parker practically a baby. That’s what this week’s episode is.
Thanks to your suggestions (by the way keep them coming), I decided to tackle Mother and Child in the Bay, because it seems to be a favourite, and I honestly couldn’t remember much of what happened in this. It was a great idea, because this episode is so rich in character development, and it was almost like watching it through new eyes. Surprisingly for such a standalone episode, we get to delve quite deeply into Brennan’s psyche, and this sheds an enormous amount of light onto why she believes what she believes. (Spoiler alert: it has nothing to do with science, despite her protests.) You best believe that gives me Feelings. We have Brennan discussing religion (and a zombie Jesus callback to boot!), Brennan dealing with family angst, Booth dealing with his family drama, everyone being snarky as hell, and other fun moments.
Onwards and upwards with the Summer Rewind Recaps! (Is that a thing? That should be a thing.)
Awww, sweet babies. Sweet, beautiful, stupid babies.
Hey, remember that time the protagonist on “Bones” stabbed a suspect in the neck with a hypodermic needle filled with what everyone thought was a fatal virus?
I miss this show.
Another time our protagonist accidentally shot her partner in the leg. And shortly thereafter she shot a woman in the throat for accidentally shooting her partner in the chest. Because no one accidentally shoots her partner except her.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Some like to do it by singing and dancing. Others like to do it by shooting people. You just never know.
(My original title for this was “Shot Through The Heart, And Pam’s To Blame,” but then I realized that I already used that one this season. Geez, people get shot at a lot on this show.)
Apparently this idea of doing weekly recaps over the summer is a little too lofty a goal for me, but by gum, I’m trying my best. And this week’s edition is everyone’s favourite musical, Wannabe in the Weeds. (HA!)
I can’t promise any deep thoughts, but, there is definitely frivolity aplenty in today’s post.
Snarking? Singing? Cyndi Lauper? Sign me up! How could this possibly go wrong?
(Don’t answer that.)
Whoo! One of my favorite episodes! (Even if the ending is traumatizing. But that kind of goes with the territory.)
No one should have to sit through those. Except for maybe Sours. Yeah, Sours should be forced to write a critical analysis of the prequels, along with a character study of Jar Jar Binks.
HOLY SHIT YES. That is the perfect punishment. Because you know Sours is a Star Wars fanboy and watching the prequels will be a particularly terrible torture for him. That’s it, exactly. I no longer want Sours to die; I want him to be forced to watch the prequels over and over again, for the rest of his stupid life. And then he’ll have to write reports on them, as you said, and his prison cell will be covered, wall to wall, with posters of Jar Jar. And all Jar Jar audio recordings will be piped into his cell 24/7. Yes. Yes, I like the sound of that. Mwahahahahahahaha…
Oh my God, dude. In started snorting at ARMY and never looked back. This makes me want to watch this all over again, just to tell Luke to shut the fuck up. I don’t remember him being a whiny asshole, but obviously he must be. Great recap, man.
Lol, Luke might not be as whiny as I make him out to be, but—I mean, yes, he’s pretty whiny. I was always enamored with Han Solo though, so maybe I’m just biased against him by default or something. And thank you! It almost made me want to recap the prequels. Almost.
The One Where Cam Finally Has An A Plot (And Sadly We Can Narrow It Down That Precisely), Featuring Kick-Ass Ladies
It’s hiatus time, and you know what that means! Rewind Recaps! (Is that what I called them last year? I can’t remember.)
Thanks to a suggestion by a lovely lady last week, today’s edition will be Doctor in the Den. I admit it’s an episode I often overlook, but this same lovely lady mentioned that it’s a great showcase for Cam, and dammit, if there’s one character and actor who is criminally underused on Bones, it’s Cam and Tamara Taylor.
What I didn’t remember, until watching this episode the other day, was just how prominent a role Brennan plays in Cam’s story in this one. So, an episode where we get to see Brennan use her past experience as a foster child (aka my kryptonite) to help Cam deal with emotional upheaval, as well as flesh out Cam’s character? SIGN ME UP. Add in some girl talk with our three leading ladies, and an appearance by Uptight!Clark, and you’ve got yourself a good stew going.
Here goes the first of what will hopefully be many trips down memory lane this summer!
Whooo! I love this episode. Like I said before, it’s underrated (I sort of feel like a lot of Season Four episodes are), and I think it’s one of the first times they focused on Cam, and it was awesome. Also, zoo animals!
imnotnormalimextraordinarytoo said: Very interesting. I hope this pops up on my dish sometime so I can record it, because it sounds interesting enough. I’ve heard that Kathleen Turner’s performance is nuanced enough that there are no “sides” to take, really.
Yeah, I’d say it’s a little more complex a story than, you know, taking sides. Like, even the genuinely mean thing that I think Kathleen Turner’s character does in the movie (it has to do with the woman his son is seeing) is brought about by something more complicated than morality, you find out. Her character’s own past is brought into the matter, in regards to how she acts and reacts to things, and so it’s a bit different than a Catholicism vs. The World scenario. I don’t know. I hope I’m not making it out to have more depth than it actually does. I don’t think it’s a particularly “deep” movie. It does try to wrap things up into a neat little package, and I’m sure its subject matter is more complicated than the film conveys, but like I said, it’s ultimately pretty good-hearted and therefore hard to vehemently dislike.
