Ted and I started watching “Bones” a couple of days ago. He noticed right off that Bones herself falls into a proper martial arts finishing stance when she’s done kicking somebody’s ass. I noticed right off that Booth calls her “Bones” when he’s being casual or trying to annoy her, and “Temperence” when he’s pleased with her, and that she objects to being called “Bones” when she’s annoyed with *him*, but doesn’t seem to mind otherwise. We were both amused by these observations. :) Anyway, it’s better than I expected, even though people kept mentioning it was a good show.

I’ve uploaded about half of my ComicCon photos. I have this idea that later when I’m done writing my book I’m going to do a whole set if ComicCon 2008 icons. But that’s another 30K away. Oh! Only 30K to go! I broke 80K today! Yay me! :)

‘k, that’s all.

I really enjoy Bones. I like the dynamic. :)

Bones has become my non-guilty guilty pleasure. It's not always perfect (the season-ender has annoyed people mightily, and with reason) but it's a nice little ensemble cast playing off each others' strengths and weaknesses, and I enjoy visiting with them every week.

Oh I love Bones. It's the only show on FOX anymore that I watch. Did you freak out the first time you saw DB in sunlight? We did.

I too love Bones, the character interaction is quite fun and I just love the conspiracy paranoia that is Hodgins :)

I love Bones. It's one of the shows I had a completely unlikely OPT for (Zack/Angela 4eva).

Just my opinion: series 1 and 2 are very good television. Series 3 jumps the shark rather heavily. I won't spoiler the overall story arc, but I highly suspect that the writers' strike made them rush the ending, forcing them in a poor direction. If the ending is what they always intended, then I have even less respect for the writers and the series creator than I would have if it was all down to the writers' strike interfering with their longer plans.

Bones and House are my favorites. Bones because I love the dynamic between Booth and Temperance and House because he's such an ass! :)

I really like the show Bones. Very cute, entertaining, and does not take itself seriously.

I enjoy Bones as well. I like the fact that the character of Bones is so unlike most female characters. And I think some of that has to do with the actress. Her little sister is a good actress as well

Bones is cute, the few times I've watched it, but it's hard for me to get into for whatever reason.

Taken just as a TV show, Bones rocks.

You might enjoy the books, too, but they're about a completely, utterly different Temperance Brennan.
