Fall TV: A WoC Watchlist
TV is in a “Golden Age,” right?
I just can’t, y’all. CANNOT. Even without the Ray Rice video debacle, there was still an absurd amount of news this week. Come on in to find out which surprising city may be passing a racist abortion ban, who thinks women are penis homes, and why white people need to shut up about butts and […]
Christopher Pelant is back and is simultaneously more creepy and less threatening than ever before. Agent Flynn returns, briefly. Sweets is back in a suit. Super-cute Priestender is back, too!
Saturday Pop Culture Brunch 10/5/13
Happy Saturday! Come on in, I made mimosas. Let’s talk about Fall TV.
It’s been a couple of weeks since Sweets started his leave and just when he thought he was out, they pull him back in for help with a case relating to gang violence.
An ex-Wall Street guy plows a field of kale (of course it’s kale. Does kale even grow near DC?) and finds something not so green. He doesn’t know how to stop his tractor, so the body is brought up on the wheel’s spikes. Brennan is not going to like that.
Bones tries something new for its 150th episode and, well, it doesn’t quite work, in my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
There’s so much B-Plot this episode that we skip the body discovery altogether. The FBI is already at the scene of a hurricane-capsized garbage barge that littered a beach with debris, including a strange plastic pod filled with jellied human remains. It reminds Hodgins of aliens. It reminds Brennan of a ship in a bottle. […]
[Trigger Warning: 9/11.] For Veteran’s Day, the Bones crew gives us a touching episode about an unidentified body that turns out to be a homeless veteran and becomes a personal case for the team.
A garbage collector with an operatic bent is annoying his coworker, who wants him to try some Jay-Z or Cee-Lo. Opera Guy says that if Hip Hop Guy sings some opera, he’ll sing some Kanye. The wonderful singing turns into screaming, though, as Hip Hop Guy spots some human body stuck inside one of the […]
New Fall Shows on the Chopping Block
The fall television season is barely underway, and TV Guide is already reporting that quite a few new shows could end up on the chopping block. Some I’ve watched, some I haven’t, and some I’ve never even heard of before.
As a warning: if you’re triggered by depictions of violence against animals, don’t watch this episode. I obviously won’t be including the relevant screenshots, but tread carefully if you’re sensitive to such topics.
A Big Gulp proves hazardous to the health of the man it blows up and Booth gets a taste of a desk job promotion while Sweets gets a new partner.
Bones is back, but first we’ve got to get the team back together, clear Brennan’s name, and put Pelant behind bars once and for all. None of which is as easy as it seems…
