Leave it to Booth and Bones to turn a case about a murdered transgender minister into a discussion on whether or not Booth would be prettier than Bones if he were a woman! For the record, he says he would.
Not as much goodness this week as in previous weeks, but there were still a few things to keep me happy. I liked the way the son accepted his father for who he was even after he learned about the transgender operation. I also liked the way the son took over his father's church. It was sweet, but it also contrasted the mother's less-than-accepting reaction to the news that her husband had decided to become a woman. The scene in the car between Booth and Bones about him being a woman had me laughing (even though we had seen a lot of it over the summer during those hilarious promos). And even though he was a little on the random side, I enjoyed this week's Squint Du Jour. Of course, this means that he hit the road before the closing credits rolled.
Hold onto your hats, folks, because this one is going to be a shocker! A PTR First if you will -- I'm putting the Booth/Bones/Sweets scene in the "Bad" category this week! Told ya it was shocking! You guys know that I'd give my right arm for more interaction between these three (not really, but you get the point), and I did find their opening scene to be mildly funny (and VERY quiet), BUT the whole point of these scenes is to bring lots of humor. And that humor comes from the dialog between the three and this scene had nada! Zilch! Ergo, it was a sorta pointless scene and a waste of a Booth/Brennan/Sweets moment.
I've had to learn the hard way to eat before watching Bones because if I didn't, I could have a best-selling book called The Bones Diet: How to Watch TV and Still Lose Weight (Like, A Lot of Weight). Seriously, this show does nasty, stomach-turning remains like no other. Patricia's truncated body was no exception.
