I am a huge Bones Fan. This is one of two TV shows that I refuse to miss. Thank you DVR!
That being said, I am having a hard time with this new season. Last May Season 5 ended with Dr. Brennan leaving the Jeffersonian to pursue some old bones in Indonesia and Booth was called back to duty in Afghanistan by Uncle Sam. The emotionally charged season finale left viewers waiting on the edge of their seats for the next season. Okay, it left this viewer waiting on the edge of her seat for the next season.
Finally at the end of September my wait came to an end.
So what did they do? They went and had Booth fall in love *gasp* with somebody else?
Okay, I get it. He was overseas in a war zone and she is hot in a Dessert Barbie kind of way. But how did he just stop loving Dr. Brennan? Because lets face it we all know or knew that he did. In fact Dr. Brennan was the only one who didn't seem to know that Booth's heart was hers but for the taking.
The only way these writers are going to get me back on their side is if I start to see Booth torn between the woman he is with and the one his heart wants him to be with. AKA Dr. Brennan.
Originally I found the idea of a love interest for Booth quite acceptable. But to say that he is in love with her? No, I have to draw the line there.
Is it wrong for me to be this emotional about a story line? My husband certainly thinks so. He became especially distraught when I started throwing popcorn at the TV while I watched the latest episode. Although, I think it had more to do with popcorn hitting his television than with my actual mindset concerning two of my beloved characters. He does like to point out that it is only a TV show after all.
It's not like I don't want him to be happy, but in true love story fashion I think he should want to miserable with Brennan than be happy with someone else.
Come on people! Who is with me on this? I am thinking of starting a petition. Or maybe just a seriously angry twitter stream. I have to think on this a little more.
In closing I just want to know which show does or did it for you? Which ones are/were the quintessential romantic characters on that TV show you are/were hooked on. Maybe I will find a new must see.
