LA Times Freelancer Loves Bones

Freelance writer David Tischman has a great article in the LATimes on Bones. He loves most everything about the show, but talks heavily on Booth and Brennan. Guy or not, he's a definite 'shipper, but is wary that any crossing over the 'line' might ruin the wonderful friendship.

Yes, the sexual tension hangs heavy, and everyone knows Booth and Brennan want to do it, Sam-and-Diane style -- but series creator Hart Hanson also writes an adult male-female friendship that is wonderful and special without being precious.

Brennan and Booth try to explain away the respect and concern they feel for each other as something simple -- they're partners, like Mulder and Scully -- but "Bones" gives us the first on-screen pairing that makes you think and gives you pause; if they do have sex, will it ruin the friendship?
What do you think? Will it ruin the friendship?
