AfterEllen with Another Bones Article

AfterEllen has a post (that looks like a story) on Bones, "Bones Kinda Sorta Giving You What You Want," about some past and upcoming relational plots (slight spoiler warning). Check it out here.

I read that and I couldn't get if she was happy or mad...

Wendy said...

Yeah...I kinda had the same problem. Hah! I think she likes that the plots are happening, but she's irritated they aren't permanent.

Mom2ABnTB said...

I agree. And maybe, with Cam, they can delve more into those plots...

I think it's both - yes, it's great that these relationships are being shown in a primetime tv show, but it would be much better if they were shown as 'normal' relationships rather than plot devices to provide obstacles for the 'real' relationships.

I understand her point, but on the other hand, the producers could just have easily brought in a white woman for Booth, or a white man for Angela, as those plot devices. Mind you, the new Angela plot does have that taint of 'ohmigod! shock value' ... I just hope they do it well.

I agree with louise.
I get her point and I was a bit shocked at the new Angela plot. Looking back at episodes, I can sort of see teh hints at her being bi but I never really picked up on that before. Maybe because I liked her relationship with Hodgins and was too invested in Booth/Brennan to notice.

But as for Cam, I hated that she just sort of landed in Booth's bed in season 2. Naturally I ship Booth/Brennan - they are made for each other and Cam just came out of nowhere!
Really excited about season 4 though. Crossing my fingers for more BB smoochies!
