King of the Lab - Trivia

Today's question:

Bones sometimes cites websites in it's case research. Sometimes they are real sites, and sometimes they are fake, like the "Hotty Student Body" site that was a nod at Girls Gone Wild.

How many 'real' websites can you name that have been cited (either verbally, or clearly and recognizably shown in the background) in the show? (No government or standard crime database websites count - everyday, normal sites only, sites that anyone might visit.)

Give an episode where the website was mentioned or seen as well. Whoever can name the most today wins.
I'm still coming off the holiday weekend. The family stuff is actually stretching into tomorrow now. I promise we'll get back to normal around here soon!

They look at a murder victim's MySpace page in a recent episode. The mannie, perhaps? I can't remember whose it was. Chrys in KS

I saw Myspace in "The Glowing Bones in the Old House" and "The Bone that Blew."

nini said...

Yeap..myspace is one that was used a couple of times.

Louise said...

I think they've shown YouTube a couple of times, maybe in The He in the She?

cordy said...

Myspace also in Wannabe in the Weeds.
And Bones has done her "googling" in the Man in the Wall.

My Space it's been named in 'the bone that blew' last week, in 'the wannabe in the weeds' and in 'glowing bones...' And I don't know if this count as a website, but Google's been mentioned a few times also, like in 'the man in the wall' when Brennan says "I've done my googling" and in 'the knight on the grid' when Brennan says "I can't freak out every time somebody Googles me" after she receives the kneecaps from Gormogon... That's all I can remember.

MySpace has been used several times by the characters, and I know they even set up fake ones for characters in "The Glowing Bones in the Old Stone House." And they watched videos on MySpace in "Wannabe in the Weeds." Brennan used Google in "The Man in the Wall." Brennan was using a dating site in "Two Bodies in the Lab" and was on some sort of horse website in "Death in the Saddle," but I have no idea if those were real or made up. And I think that's all I got for now.

Amanda said...

The dating site wasn't real (I looked, just for fun) but thought that might have been a fun viral advertising site for FOX to use.

katjem said...

I certainly can't think of anymore but will try. The Myspace and Google mentions came to my mind straight away.

I have just started re-watching the episodes again from Season 1. I need something to do between now and 15th Jan and housework just doesn't have the same appeal. It is nice seeing how everyone started out and comparing the "then" to the "now". It is also amusing picking up little things. In "The Man in the Bear" Angela was saying how she has a thing for tattoos and then recently in "The Man in the Outhouse" she was calling them tramp stamps.

Pretty sure they've mentioned NCIC but damn if I can remember a specific episode.

What everyone else has mentioned: My Space, Google, the fake dating site (which was kind of a shout-out to match.com, no?). And didn't they use they use the missing children database in Girl with the curl?

Excellent question Wendy. Now I'm wondering how many more we've all missed...

katjem said...

I thought of another one. In "The Man in the Fallout Shelter" Brennan uses AOL to search for Assisted Living facilities to find Ivy Gillespie.

Brennan also used the internet to track her down via the Silver Cloud Petroleum website but that isn't a real site so I don't think it counts.

@katjem

A tramp stamp is a name specifically for a tattoo located on the lower back. It is visible if you are wearing low cut jeans or leaning over, sort of like the top of a thong, hence the semi-affectionate "tramp" association.

katjem said...

Thank you Brennanite. That makes sense now. I had never heard of that term before.

tigert said...

Also the murder mystery chatroom was mentioned in "The Bodies in the Book"

tigert said...

and the busted by Bill website in the Man in the outhouse

Kamara said...

I started going through older episodes and the only other one i've found so far was the motorkneescrapers.com with was mentioned in 'Mad in the Mud'. I had a look but turns out it wasn't legit.

Great question by the way.

Shep said...

The only one's I can think of atm are Myspace and Google. I remember Myspace was mentioned in 'Bone that Blew'. What about those videos of Pastor Patrick Stevenson in 'he in the she' and Bill O'Roarke in 'man in the outhouse' - were they on Youtube or another real website?

Wendy said...

I meant to do this earlier - but I really can't pick a winner this week. Everyone worked on it together! Some great answers though, especially Katjem - I had totally forgotten about AOL!

Someone answer me this:

Before I posted the question I was debating with a friend as to whether the Perez Hilton blog was seen in the background in one episode, but not mentioned by name. Anyone remember this? Or am I thinking of another show for that reference?

katjem said...

Wendy - I can't answer your question in regards to Perez Hilton but if I come across it during my current re-watch of episodes I will let you know.

Shannon said...

Hodgins mentions 'dream theory' in Death in the Saddle (I think he's talking about a site anyway)...I think it's a real site. =)
