Bones 11×14 ‘The Last Shot in the Second Chance’: Success redefined

Ouch. This week’s episode wasn’t the easiest to watch, but it might just have been the remedy we all needed. Hodgins is in a world of hurt, and bringing us all down with him. But with the return of Sebastian the photographer, have he and Angela reached the point of no return? Plus, it’s time […]

Bones 11×13 ‘The Monster in the Closet’: Something wicked this way comes

It’s been a while since Bones delved into a good old-fashioned creepy case, and tonight’s episode made up for lost time with a story that harkens back to its earliest days. If you’d have told me I’d be sitting here this week actually on the edge of my seat until the end credits rolled, I’d […]

Bones 11×12 ‘The Murder of the Meninist’: It’s a man’s, man’s, man’s world

Never ones to shy away from topical themes, this week our squints take a look at feminism — and the groups who fight against it. It’s quintessential Bones: in many ways predictable and broad, but it’s what’s painted between the lines that really shines and sets the show apart. With Hodgins’ recovery permeating the story, […]

Bones 11×11 “The Death in the Defense”: Truth and consequences

Previously on Bones, Hodgins got hurt and everyone was sad! It’s been such a long time since Bones has been on the air, that it almost feels like a brand new season is upon us just as other shows are wrapping up for the year! When we left off in December, Hodgins was left paralyzed after […]

Bones 11×09 ‘The Cowboy in the Contest’ and 11×10 ‘The Doom in the Boom’: We all might be wearing ponchos to work

Bones finishes the first half of the season with a double-header, giving fans enough food for thought to spin all sorts of theories over the next indeterminate hiatus. The first hour sees Booth and Brennan spar Old West-style, while the second is eerily familiar for all the wrong reasons for our poor cast. I’ll give […]

Bones 11×08 ‘The High Treason in the Holiday Season’: Fauxfurkey Shoot

Season 11 is the year of the callback for Bones. From returning to the banter of yore, to mentions of past cast members, to revisiting old arcs, the show seems determined to put a new spin on its history. Case in point: this week we tackle Thanksgiving! It might just be the only holiday the show […]

Bones 11×07 ‘The Promise in the Palace’: It’s an illusion, Brennan

Nothing like a little magic to throw a wrench into an investigation. From victims to suspects to scientists to the Tooth Fairy, everyone is apparently an expert at sleight of hand in this week’s episode of Bones. How does one dazzle even the most skeptical of squints? Apparently with a lot of exasperation. Nicole L. […]

Bones 11×06 ‘The Senator in the Street Sweeper’: House of Cards and flatscreen TVs

For a show set in DC, Bones really doesn’t mine the world of politics all that often, but apparently season 11 is all about expanding horizons and new takes on old favorites. Like, say, an aide committing murder for the sake of his boss’ career, debating televisions in the bedroom, or conducting background checks on […]

Bones 11×05 ‘The Resurrection in the Remains’: It’s the great pumpkin crossover, Ichabod Crane!

Given how long Bones has been on the air, it’s probably surprising it hasn’t been forced to cross over with another FOX show before now. Yet it’s a network-stalwart rite of passage, and this week, the show teams up with Sleepy Hollow (its Thursday night time slot partner) for a little Halloween magic (and ratings […]

Bones 11×04 ‘The Carpals in the Coy-Wolves’: When things get boring, that’s when you start killing characters

I could talk about plenty of things this week. Like about Booth dealing with his gambling addiction, or Brennan projecting her subconscious in her novels, for instance. None of that really matters, though, because Betty Freakin’ White is our newest squint, and is wholly adorable at it. Nicole L. is willing to talk about TV […]

Bones 11×03 ‘The Donor in the Drink’: Everybody hurts sometimes

Lest you think the writers would shy away from the fallout of Booth nearly dying trying to save his not-so-lucky brother, Bones tackles the grief head-on, albeit without tears or meltdowns. Instead, Booth is the one obsessing over remains for once, and everyone else gets caught in the crossfire. Nicole L. is willing to talk about […]

Bones 11×02 ‘The Brother in the Basement’: Shots fired, in more ways than one

Following last week’s cliffhanger, the team is back to rescue Booth from certain death. He’s in over his head, and his gut is paying the price! What’s a worried wife to do? March back into the lab and solve this case, that’s what. Nicole L. is willing to talk about TV to anyone who will […]

Bones 11×01 ‘The Loyalty in the Lie’: Here we go again…

Another season premiere, another episode where Booth is in danger, Brennan and the team race to save him and (spoiler alert) someone finds a body. Nicole L. is willing to talk about TV to anyone who will listen. She’s thought way too hard about her favorite shows, ever since her grade school days watching “Full […]

Bones 10×22 ‘The Next in the Last’: End of an era

This is it, folks: season 10 might have had its ups and downs, but it finally concluded tonight. It almost was a series finale, but luckily it’s not, or else I would have been a blubbering mess. Nicole L. is willing to talk about TV to anyone who will listen. She’s thought way too hard […]

Bones 10×21 ‘The Light in the Life’: Here we go again

Season 10 is closing out at lightning speed! Booth’s still working on his sobriety, Brennan’s still trying to keep their family afloat, and Hodgins and Angela are still dreaming of lands far away from crime-solving. The word is topsy-turvy, which is why it’s probably a good thing the team is investigating a dead yogi this […]

Bones 10×20 ‘The Woman in the Whirlpool’: Tough love

This has to be the longest streak of consecutive “Previously Ons” in ten seasons of Bones, which means the show isn’t shying away from the consequences of Booth’s relapse. However, it also makes for some incredibly difficult television to watch, because we are so unused to seeing Booth and Brennan at such odds, with no […]

Bones 10×19 ‘Murder in the Middle East’: Iranian Roulette

Murder! Generic foreign accents! Obviously-Southern-Californian-Locations doubling as the Middle East! No, it’s not NCIS: it is in fact this week’s episode of Bones. As if Arastoo getting embroiled in a murder investigation in Iran isn’t crazy enough, Brennan finally finds out about Booth’s secret, and I think we collectively need a drink right now. Nicole […]

Schitt’s Creek 1×13 ‘Town For Sale’: So long, farewell…

The day the Roses have all been waiting for finally arrives: there’s a buyer for Schitt’s Creek, which means they can move back to the big city! But when push comes to shove, are they really ready to leave the town behind? (More to the point: will they ever learn not to put all their […]

Bones 10×17 ‘The Lost in the Found’ and 10×18 ‘The Verdict in the Victims’: Double trouble

It’s not every day we get two new episodes of Bones! Tonight, the show makes several allusions to Brennan’s size, discusses our squints’ futures, and tries to get a man off death row because they sent him there in the first place. All in a day’s work, right? Nicole L. is willing to talk about […]

Schitt’s Creek 1×12 ‘Surprise Party’: No funds in this fundraiser

It’s Moira’s birthday, and her family tries to make it a special one despite their circumstances. If they can’t go back their old lives, then the least they can do is bring back a little of that glamor on her special day. But planning a surprise party in town is no easy feat. Nicole L. […]
