The Bones Episode Update

This really irritated me last night, but I hope it's a one time thing that has to do with The Office airing at 8 last night and possibly taking a chunk of viewers from the first 1/2 hour.

OMG thanks for this post! I was totally irritated by that too...I hope it's not something new they're doing for every episode. LOL

I kinda liked it. I kind of knew what was going on but that explained it better.

i didn't have problem with it. it was actually pretty cool and i wouldn't mind if they did it again.Im curious tho, what did u find irritating about it?

Tracie said...

Yeah, I thought it was cool too.

There are a lot of times when someone watches a half hour show and is looking for something to watch afterward - so this is a great way to get the audience caught up if they've tuned in halfway through.

The more viewers Bones can get, the better! :)

I liked it, too. It was a nice little catch up on what had happened so far, plus I liked all of Angela/Michaela's funny little commentary as Cam/Tamara told the story. It'll be interesting to see if they do it again.

i liked it. my mom missed the first 15 min so this was a great way to make sure she had the main points. It's okay with me if it becomes regular

I appreciate the function of it but it took me completely out of the flow of the episode to have the characters suddenly talking to the screen, no different than if they did it in the middle of a scene. It would have irked me less to have a complete stranger's voice doing it instead, like commentary from a fellow watcher.

I actually kinda liked it. Thought it was a fun re-cap of the first half in 15 seconds.

I think that is could be a little annoying. However this particular time I appreciated it. I was stuck in traffic coming home from work, and though I DVRed it I like to watch in real time, a little catch up was appreciated!
