Last night was the finale of The Bachelorette and with 3 hours focusing on it, ABC easily won the night. Bones came in 2nd in it's timeslot again, besting other reruns and new American Gladiators. It will be interesting to see what happens next week!

TV's Hardest Men

SkyTV (the channel that airs Bones in Britain) is running a program called "TV's Hardest Men" right now. There's not a link yet with a definitive list giving all the names because I don't think they've actually run through the whole list at this point. However, it's being reported that David Boreanaz comes in not once, but twice on the list: #33 with Angel and #22 with Booth. That's fantastic!

You can see a teaser link here that includes the possibles for the final list and he appears in that section as Angel.

Episodes you just can't delete

TVGuide.com currently has a photo essay with reader comments about show episodes they can't delete. While Bones isn't mentioned (though there's a David Boreanz nod with an Buffy episode centering on Angel), I thought it would be interesting to hear which episodes of Bones you just can't erase.

If I had a DVR I'd have, most likely the entire season locked in until the DVDs were in my hands but if I had to pick a few (who can pick just one?!) I'd lock in Mummy, Santa, Baby, Verdict, Wannabee, and Pain for sure.

I don't narrow my Bones love down very well, apparently...

More Details about Bones @ Comic Con

I don't yet have the actual source link, but here's what someone posted on the Bones forums, from the Comic-Con website. Everyone will be there, maybe. (They say entire cast but there's no T.J. Thyne listing.) It should be a fantastic hour but Friday is already sold out. I hope some of you will see it!

~*~ ~*~ ~*~

4:30-5:30 Bones Join the entire cast (David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley) and creators Hart Hanson and Barry Josephson for an hour of behind-the-scenes secrets and the chance to ask them everything you always wanted to know about the hit Fox drama.

Also take note the Bones panel takes place on Friday. As of today Friday is SOLD OUT.

Four Day memberships: SOLD OUT

Sunday: Still open

Saturday: SOLD OUT

Thursday: Still open with few tickets left. It's at 61%.

And take note to the huge change from last year. Last year they sold tickets at the doors. This year they will NOT be doing that. Just a reminder on that. I want all of you fans to enjoy your trip so I'm making it easier by reminding some on this.

Brennan dating two guys...

Until tonight it was only a spoiler gained from the script 'sides' furtively sold by auditioning extras. I don't post strictly side-gained information here, but now it's out in the open. In Bones Season 4 a plot line will involve Brennan dating 2 guys, which we now see moving to public knowledge thanks to this new promo.

Here's my take on this:

Grrr, argh...uh-hmm....I'm not a fan, can you tell?

You'll hear me talk about it a lot in the podcast that will be up later today but my basic thoughts are this:

Brennan is very happy to access her sexual and intellectual sides but she's neigh on terrified of her emotional. I completely buy that Brennan would date two guys at once to fulfill the two sides of the triangle she'll acknowledge. It's rational, right? If she tries to find a guy who will fulfill both of those at once she might accidentally involve her emotions too. Now she wouldn't want that because...oh, yeah. She can already have that. It's right in front of her.

I think the plot, in a twisted way, will hopefully be a bit of acknowledgment of how close Booth is to the prize with her. I think it's going to be hurtful for him to watch this and be there as she does it, obviously, right in front of him. But as he's pointed out repeatedly: he knows her well. And, he's a very patient man.

So what do you think of this now well-known spoiler for Season 4?

Fox Fall Promo - Multiple Shows

The teaser clip I first posted is now part of this Bones Promo for Season 4. But here is also the full promo it came from at the time of the original post, highlighting Fox's fall lineup. There are more flashes of Bones there, besides the great clip.
