Bones: Yanks in the UK

From the title of this post there are obviously spoilers but it doesn't hurt to remind everyone. 

Feel free to squee or bash - I may do a little of both.



Just from watching once these are my initial thoughts, although I may need to rewatch and digest ....

* I saw a much more human and emotional Brennan throughout this ep and I liked it.  ED has added just enough warmth.

* Hated Booth's attitude about driving and the whole Mini fiasco

* Loved Cam in this - she was sharp and connected and witty and more engaged than ever - TT continues her excellent work since last season's finale.

* Still don't get the point of Sweets

* Loved Booth telling her she's special, in that offhand, easygoing manner.  It was non-intense for such an intense feeling.  Perfect touch by DB. 

* Hate Booth's red hair.  It's not right for his skin tone.  And it just bugs me.

* The Hodgela break-up didn't make sense.  At all.  One minute there's bells and the next she just walks away?  Really contrived.  (A little like Zack being a serial killer's apprentice, hmm?)

I'm sure I'll have more to say when I watch again!

Yay for Cam love and ditto on the nonsensical Hodgela break-up. I think some wtfuckery may be afoot...

Also, how did I not notice the hair? I seriously didn't see anything different... Is there a particular part of the ep it looks really red in so I can go critique with the rest of you? *feels like an unobservant failure*

"I think some wtfuckery may be afoot..."

Couldn't have said it better.

As for THE HAIR... I noticed it during several of the street scenes where the light hit it a certain way. Not really when they were in the car though. Now that we've pointed it out you'll notice, believe me.

Cam is very lately made of awesome (which continues in her interactions with Crazy Daisy). ITA about ED, she has evolved Brennan into a much more human character.

I didn't get the breakup either- it seemed a little dramatic for the situation, but maybe there's actually a point to this? One can only hope.

Overall, thought the episode didn't need to be two hours long but the one thing I loved about it was the conversation with Booth telling her she's special, while on speakerphone with Cam, in the middle of whatever else was going on. Those two...:o)
