Happy Bonesday!

Tonight is the last episode in the I-could-so-get-used-to-this, 2 episode per week, run:

"The Girl in the Mask"


Promo - Stills - Descriptions - Spoiler Talk

Anyone else kind of annoyed they are STILL showing episodes early in Canada? :(

As a Canadian...I'm not annoyed at all! This episode is a 180 from the Departed...not all fun and games but some intense parts too!

Sofi said...

Well...I have to say that no, I'm not annoyed! In fact I'm very very happy! See, for me it's the same because I have to *ahem*download*ahem* the episode, and when it's on one day earlier it's always a plus.

Wendy said...

I know, I know - many of you 'can't' watch it live, but for those of us who do it's kind of sad :(

Half the fun is in the wait Wendy!

Lily said...

I can't understand it! Bones is yours show so what are producers doing?! I'm not from US but I thing it's wrong.

Wendy said...

Very true, anon, which is why I'm not watching it, even though someone *ahem* already emailed me a link - only being in labor will stop me from waiting for live!

I just think it takes a little bit of the fun out of it though, knowing it's already out there bootleg.

AHH OMG I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS ALREADY OUT IN CANADA! I wish you hadn't told me.... now I'm not sure I can wait until tonight haha

as a US resident, I'm not upset, per se... but certainly confused. as Lily pointed out, Bones IS made in the USA. Therefore, Bones SHOULD be aired first in the USA. it's just.. common sense? it must be some scheduling thing (wednesdays are the only free time slot?) ..although, in that case, you think they'd get it a week later (like some european countries.)

although....... isn't hart hanson originally a canadian? perhaps he has had a hand in the canadians getting first dibs on the eps... haha

Ya You can get it online(I’m downloading it now) i would watch it live if i was in the us or Canada it is more fun but for me to see it live i would have to wait like 6 weeks so and I’m not doing that

Angela said...

Oh I didn't know it was already online! :-D And as an European i'm actually very happy about this! But I can understand why people from US are annoyed!

OMG OMG OMG! I TOTALLY LOVED LOVED LOVED this episode!!!I can’t wait to talk about it!It’s exactly what I was talking about on my last comment in the DDotDD discussion thread!That’s the Bones I loved and got so obsessed over!That’s the Brennan I was used to seeing and adoring! This is the way all the characters were meant to be,for me!Almost throughout the whole of the episode I was feeling a light …humidity pooling in my eyes (and that’s something that happens really really rarely-even more rarely than we’ve seen Brennan shed a tear these four years lol) and it wasn’t because of the case or the tone of the episode-but because of this unique,moving feeling that was a lot like what one feels when they meet someone really close to them and beloved after a really long time, who they have terribly missed and yearned for his/her presence for quite a while…
The child got his diamond birthday present back!!!

Angela said...

but I'm not going to say anything here, I'll wait for the discussion topic tonight ;-)
enjoy!

Irina said...

Don't Call Me Bones! said...

You guys have me wayyyy excited to see this ep! Can't wait!

Kili Climbers said...

Great episode - it shows why Bones is so great. Actually, the last few episodes show why Bones is so great - the actors can be so diverse - it is not the same thing every week. Can't wait to watch it again live tonight!

nashieb said...

i kno rite?so the rating's gonna be low again this wk.I hate FOX sometimes!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm Canadian and I actually wait and prefer to watch it on Thursday on Fox. The network that shows it here (Toronto) cuts out some of the extras Fox shows that are Bones related during commercials (bloopers etc.), AND they never have as good a preview for the next episode. if they show one at all.

Anonymous said...

ok, not spoiling in anyway: But, when they are good, they are so,so very good.

Anonymous said...

I couldn't control myself...so I watched it!

all I am gonna say is: Welcome back BONES!

and

"this here is worth it all" ;)

Anonymous said...

ugh you guyyyysssss... I'm trying to be good and wait!

*repeats to self* I will not watch it before 8pm, I will not watch it before 8pm, I will not... arggghh! I don't know if I can physically bring myself to wait til 8.

Wendy said...

Hold out! You can do it :)

Shep said...

I'm watching it now!

So far, soooooo good!!! It's the old Bones we love so much!

Wendy said...

These teasing statements are just as bad as spoilers in many ways! :P

I have already been spoiled on at least one scene on twitter :(

Anonymous said...

can someone leave the link?

Wendy said...

I'm sorry, but no. I don't want anyone to post the link here.

OWB will not be a part of hurting the ratings like that and I will delete any post giving a download or streaming link before the episode airs.

Shep said...

Sorry!
Just hang in there until 8! You can do it, people! Sit on your hands if need be. It's worth it.

heirofloki said...

Loved the ep. Will watch it again live, since tonight I actually can. =)

For those of you wondering, Canada is showing it early because of a) Fox sold the shows to them b)The need to protect the ratings of their cash cow a.k.a Survivor and c)Fox Frakked up the scheduled one times too many.

Global had actually agreed to show it at the same time as the States, but then Fox preempted another show, moved eps around to other days and Global changed their minds, deciding to show the eps whenever the Frak they wanted. Which is why, Canada didn't get Science or Mayhem -yet.

Wendy said...

Thanks, H :) I definitely lay the blame on Fox for this. Just leave Bones alone on a night and this wouldn't happen!

With Canada not yet getting 2 episodes, that gives me hope that the last 2 of the season might not air early - that's just not right to air 2 big episodes a night ahead, if they do!

I don't know what you guys are talking about...I've seen all the episodes in Canada on Global Calgary. Although we don't get the FOX previews for the next episodes...so I am sooo looking forward to seeing that posted tonight Wendy!

I'm sure I've seen something from Global saying they will air Critic and the finale the day before the US in each case.

I suppose they have time to change their mind...

I'm not trying to be alarmist, I genuinely can't remember where I read it!!
Ah, hang on, here it is: http://calsun.canoe.ca/Showbiz/2009/03/27/8902876-sun.html

Wendy said...

Ugh. :( Thanks for the info though.

CantBelieveISaidThat said...

Hope they don't air it early in Canada. Would be good for me though, but I'm afraid that it might really hurt the ratings...
And of course it's all FOX' fault!
Hope the they are smart enough to not let it air early in CAN. No offense, beloved Canadians... ;)

Wendy said...

I wish I could edit comments - that link has spoilers, just an FYI! :)

Triveni said...

well i dont live in the US so its always a plus wen its aired ONE WHOLE DAY early...since i stay in India...

Oh no, I'm SO sorry. I totally wasn't thinking. AGH. Really, really sorry people. *hangs head in shame*

Wendy said...

Don't be :) You were giving important (if disheartening) info!

Don't Call Me Bones! said...

We are almost there...3.5 hrs left, for us Americans!! Hurrrrryyyy!!!

Wendy! I miss your reviews! But coming baby takes priority, definitely. Wishing you all the best and praying for a safe delivery!

heirofloki said...

I don't know what you guys are talking about...I've seen all the episodes in Canada on Global Calgary. For real? Dude, even Science? *headscratch* I guess I need to move to Calgary when I go back to Canada. :P Though they haven't posted neither Science nor Mayhem on the Website, so yeah, odd.

I am actually sad that Global will show the finale early. If the ratings go down, Fox will (undoubtably) blame it on the show itself instead of on their own stupidity.

Wow....everyone has me beyond excited for this episode tonight!

Thanks, everyone! :)
