So this episode took a very interesting turn. It was following the cast from a supernatural aspect, as in the entire episode, up until the last 5 minutes was from the point of view of the victims remains, as though the spirit was watching the case the entire time. I have to say, the intention of this episode was challenging. It felt as thought it was very limiting, and it was, the show was limited to whenever the skull of the victim was around which motivated the cast to carry the skull around during the entire show. Now, although that is a very touching aspect, it is also, in my opinion, a little unnerving as well as a little disrespectful, I mean, they were carrying was was supposed to be a victims head around through the entire episode. It’s a little iffy for me to really wrap my head around, no pun intended. However, that being said, I did like what the concept brought to the table. It allowed Bones (Emily Deschanel) to explore something and try to accept something that was foreign to her, as in, we got to see a little more depth to her character than just the calculating, formulating scientific side. A good episode, but the perspective aspect of it threw me off a bit. Also, mix tapes reveal someone likes someone….that is all I have to say on the matter. Mondays @ 8PM EST on FOX.
Bah! I love this show! I mean this really was such a tense episode. The chemistry between Franco (James Carpinello) and Grace (Jordana Spiro) is very well structured. The plot twist that he’s a cop, I mean, it is something that is going to take me some time to get used to, I’m honestly not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand, it keeps him in the show, no questions asked, on the other hand, it feels a little cliche and it removes the bad boy aspect of who he is, just a tad, making the question of who she should chose in the end, either Brett (Zach Gilford) or Franco, questionable because now they are on equal ground. That’s my only real problem, there is no question of “should I choose the doctor, or the mob guy”, the mob guy is a cop. Other than that, I love the cast, Constantine (William Forsythe) is such a well written character, he is charismatic and manipulative and I believe that he really does care about Grace. Lot’s of stakes in this show but I do think that they need to be built up more…with that revelation, starting to wish Franco really wasn’t a cop. Oh, also, side note, the dude had the Kingdom Hearts crown as a tattoo. Just had to throw that out there. Mondays @ 9PM EST on FOX.
