It's Pseudo-Bonesday!

Tonight is the first game of the World Series, which will completely pre-empt any hope of a Bones rerun, but we can still keep the Wednesday fun alive!

Last week we talked fanfiction, but this week I have a question for you.

Who here has been rewatching Bones while doing without the new ones? My husband and I have been going through the DVDs, in order for him to see the entire set for the first time. It's definitely nostalgic for me, though. We're up to the point where Angela and Hodgins are really flirting heavily with each other. I may have dissed their relationship in Season 3, but the beginning sure was sweet.

Have you been rewatching any? What are your favorites when you do? Do you pick one particular season each time you get in the mood?

I usually go to certain episodes with scenes that I like rather than a specific season. I just rewatched The Soldier on the Grave (which isn't always a favorite because it's so sad), but I love the interaction between Angela and Brennan. A favorite quote: "Men aren't like us. They're much more fragile and needy. The fact they think that we're the needy ones is a testament to our superiority." It's such a classic Angela statement that displays the character development we all love. Those fun scenes are usually what determine which episode I'll watch.

Well I'm watching the season 4 eppys that are airing on Sky one evry week but that isn't really enough for me. And like Em-jay I rewatch episodes which have moments that I really like, make me laugh or are interesting cases e.g. Gravedigger.

Well i watch certain episodes that i like......just like Em-jay...especially with certain moments that are nice with B&B. I just recently watched Two Bodies in The lab and The Man In The Morgue. I really like the seen where Booth comes bursting into the room where Bones was being treated by the doctor. Yea so i re-watch a lot of episodes from past seasons but i don't really watch the episodes in order.

I agree, I usually pick and choose episodes, rather than do a whole season. I'll maybe do a whole season over summer, but usually not little breaks like this. A few weekends ago, I watched "Woman in Limbo" (one of my absolute favorites) and "Stargazer in a Puddle." I watch "Bodies in the Book" a lot, too. I really love that episode for some reason.

TNT is rerunning season 4 every Monday at 11, so I've been watching that as well. Last Monday was "Perfect Pieces in the Purple Pond." This post is making me wanna watch Bones now!!

I pick and choose episodes, too. Aliens in a Spaceship and The Woman in the Garden are a couple others that haven't been mentioned yet that I like to rewatch.

I recently watched Man in the Fallout Shelter. One of my favourites - some great moments there including a glimpse of Booth working out in the morning!

I'm certainly rewatching. I don't necessarily do it in order. I'm usually all over the place). I love rewatching Season 1 for some reason. I have in my computer so I do that instead of working on my writing... =P

I went to beyond-bickering and watched clips from every episode lol. Good episodes! I'm always surprised at how good Season 1 and Season 2 are. And this time around, I was really surprised at how awesome season 3 was. It's all good! :D

I will watch favourite episodes such as "Two Bodies in the Lab" or "The Woman in Limbo" but will also watch scenes that I really like from certain episodes such as the ending to "Death in the Saddle" and "Intern in the Incinerator". I have watched Season 1 (DVD Box Set) and Season 3 (taped on DVR) at least 3 times. I am waiting for the Season 2 DVD Box Set to be released in Australia (due Dec 08) so that I can re-watch all of those episodes. Who knows when the Season 3 Box Set will be released here but I hope it isn't too far away.

OMG I just read the sides. Looks like the PTBs are reading my comments too becuase my thoughts are coming trueeee!!!

This si going to be one hell of an episode.

Ok, it seems I'm more obsessed than I thought, lol...

I've watched the full series a couple of times, and I'm currently going through one re-watch. Just finished the 2x13 Girl in the Gator and, as soon as I finish some college-related stuff, I'll watch another one. And then, I'm going to the supermarket and you can guess what I'll do as soon as I come back!

I don't do this (too) often. What I do most of the times is watching certain epps (no pun intended, lol) or certain escenes as the mood dictates. And when we have a new ep, I re-watch it a couple times to be sure I got every line right (not native english speaker here... In case you hadn't noticed!).

I don't have to explain why I just love Bones, right?

And it's wonderful to see how the series developed from the Pilot on; to keep laughing at clever lines and marvelling at nice scenes and interactions... ::sighs::

Anyway...

It's just good to share this little secret between ppl who will understand. At least sort of, lol.

Oh we understand! Nobody in my "real" life understands, so it's nice to have a place to talk to fellow addicts. I used to think there was something wrong with me for analyzing the relationships between fictional characters on a TV show... Okay, maybe there is something wrong with it, but at least I know I'm not the only one!

Since I'm a poor college student, I can't afford to buy the DVDs, so I watch the show on a foreign site. It's poor quality, has Chinese subtitles, but hey, it beats spending the little money I have now on the DVDs--instead of textbooks. One day, though, when I'm through with college, I'm gonna buy them all! :D I'm totally obsessed with this show.

My season 2 DVDs are out indoctrinating people into the Bones cult, so I've been watching season 1 episodes, such as Boy in the Tree, Boy in the Bush, Woman in Limbo (I think that's my season 1 fave), Man in the Morgue, Woman in the Airport, Man on Death Row and the Two Bodies commentary with ED and DB. They're so hilarious together!!
