While I admit I am a 'shipper for Bones and Booth, plot-device Hannah was *possibly* needed (trying to be positive and give the benefit of the doubt here!) to give Bones and Booth an emotional kick in the butt to see what - or more likely, who - is right in front of their faces. But I won't lie: I was relieved when she left...and David Boreanaz's performance after Hannah's rejection gets major kudos from me. But fate had other plans, in the form of a tragic event with one of the squints and the aftermath that led straight to the finale.
And the supporting cast and their stories - most especially, Angela/Hodgins and the birth of their baby - also helped to add to the good and blur the bad, for me.
It will be most interesting to see where the final few minutes of the finale takes us for Season 7. In any case, thanks to the upswing, I have pre-ordered this season's DVD set.
Because, for me, even Season 6 "Bones" is better than most of the reality crap and other shows on TV now.
But it will be a long wait 'til November 3rd's premiere! So the DVD set should nicely fill the longer gap (due to baseball and Emily Deschanel's pregnancy!).
Update (07/11/11): Though Amazon does not yet have the date, TVShowsOnDVD.com says the set - on both DVD and Blu-Ray - will be released on October 4, 2011 (with a very tiny sneak peek of the possible cover art)!
Update #2 (08/10/11): The finalized date per TVShowsOnDVD.com is for October 11th. You can see all details there.
BONES supports the contention that a guy and a girl, especially if they're both hotties, cannot be friends without eventually becoming more than friends. And, yes, this applies even to someone as detached and clinical as the world's foremost forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance Brennan. It's BONES' sixth season and, as ever, the sparks fly between our two leads. How cool is that?
As we saw in the Season 5 closer, our crime-solving squints have scattered to the winds. FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth has been recalled to active military duty. Dr. Brennan is traipsing thru Indonesia in search of man's true origins. Hodgins and Angela are in France. And the heart-broken Sweets had gone on sabbatical and become a goateed piano player in some bar. It would take seven months and Dr. Cam Saroyan's dire straits at the Jeffersonian Institute to reunite the old gang. The Season Six opener ("The Mastodon in the Room") reminds us that Bones can still deliver a smackdown as she wipes the jungle floor with a crew of armed guerrilas.
Six seasons into it, BONES is still my favorite show on television. I'm still savoring that blend of police procedural, slightly futuristic forensics, terrific humor, and addictive relationship drama. I don't know how the showmakers keep coming up with interesting ways to present the icky corpse.Read more ›
That's my one problem with Season 6. After SIX ENTIRE SEASONS of building up to Booth and Brennan finally overcoming their fear and trusting each other enough to be together, all we see is some hand-holding and tears. Brennan sits on Booth's bed to be comforted, he holds her, END SCENE. Not even so much as a single passionate kiss after all of the anticipation and WILL THEY WON'T THEY drama.I would have liked a little more confirmation that they did in fact have sex. Instead, we're left with Brennan smiling mysteriously at Angela, which is just annoying. She doesn't even SAY, "Yes, we did, it was awesome thanks." She just smiles.
And, in the final episode of the season, I admit I expected some obvious affection/sign that they were actually together. We didn't get that, either. At the very end we get confirmation that they had sex by way of Brennan telling Booth that she's pregnant with his child. Which is great, BUT STILL. Not even so much as a peck on the lips!
I guess I feel a little cheated after so much chemistry and the long process of watching them fall in love; it would have been nice to see some smooches.
