Extreme Spoiler Chat: Harbingers in the Fountain

Spoilers have arrived! It's our first 'Spoiler Chat' post of Season 5: Harbingers in the Fountain.

Here, you can comment about ANY spoilers related to this episode. It's FFA and spoiler-phobes stay away!

Since it's the start of the Season, and there are new readers who don't know where to find sides, I will post links THIS TIME. I do not plan to make a habit of posting sides though, as we're not a spoiler-heavy blog around here. But just this once...

SpoilerTV (He's looking for support for posting Bones sides, so if you read them, give it to him!)

Hart Hanson on Show Production

Today is prep day at Bones - and the actors return to work next week!

Stephen Nathan on writing Bones

Stephen Nathan tweeted Saturday about writing Bones. Link only, possible spoiler about an episode location (kind of cryptic though!).

Hart Hanson on Writer's Block

Hart Hanson tweets about how he deals with writer's block:

King of the Lab

A bit different this week. Maybe just to switch it up, or maybe because I'm so sleep deprived it sounds fun and different! :)

You can be King of the Lab if you can identify this 2009 movie, given a more Bones-y title.

Farah Fawcett has died

This is not directly Bones news, but, as a fan of Ryan O'Neal, I wanted to pass on that Farrah Fawcett has died. I am guess he never go the chance to make good on his accepted marriage proposal. So sad.

At this moment, it is just breaking news, so there is no story to link, but Hart Hanson has already put out his condolences to Ryan O'Neal, via his Twitter, to the fans.

Lucky Lucy meets DB... again!

Lucy is one lucky (or industrious?) Bones fan. She met David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel last year when they filmed in London and today managed to snag yet another short chat, and picture, with David Boreanaz when he was interviewed for BBC 1 radio.

"OMG Wendy you will be proud, I heard DB was gonna be on Radio 1 so i skipped lectures at uni and went down there to see if I could catch a glimpse....and i was lucky YAY!!! I chatted to him really briefly about S5 and yet again he was so lovely! Thankfully I was a little more prepared this time so was actually able to speak! I was even lucky enough to get another pic!"
Congrats, Lucy, and thanks for the picture!

Star Central Magazine - 10 Sexiest Vampires

David Boreanaz, as Angel, comes in at #5 on this list of sexiest vampires.

5. David Boreanaz as Angel

“Angel” is actually a spin-off of the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The main plot of the show revolves around the ongoing trials and tribulations of Angel, a yummy vampire whose human soul was reinstated to him by some gypsies as a form of revenge because he killed a gypsy. After more than a century of torturing and killing innocent people, His restored soul now tortures his damned soul with guilt on a daily basis. He works as a private detective in the TV series where he and a group of friends “help the helpless” and save the souls of those who have veered away onto the wrong path.

Angel is actually considered to be one of the sexiest men in TV - and we’re definitely not surprised! With a name like Angel, no wonder he’s a heart stopper!

TV's 50 Coolest Dads

Seeley Booth comes in at #13 on this list of "TV's Coolest Dads."

#13 Seeley Booth, Bones

Saving the day every day from the bad guys is enough to make Seeley Booth cool, but his devotion to his son Parker is what makes him a truly cool dad.

Stephen Fry Article - small Bones mention

The DailyMail has a great article on Stephen Fry - his amazing weight loss, Twitter, and more. It includes a mention of various upcoming commitments, including the desire to get him back on Bones. He's a fascinating guy - worth the read!

Vote Brennan/Booth for Best TV Couple Chemisty

Kristen at E! has a poll up for TV's best couple chemistry. (Along with a mainstream nice nod to fan vid makers by using one to illustrate the poll.) Vote Booth & Bones here.

How did you develop your Obsession?

So, other Bones-obsessed fans, how did you find Bones? Are you an 'original' fan? A writer's strike fan? When did you find it, and what kept you coming back?

I am a proud writer's strike fan who kept coming back for the entire package, with the BB relationship edging out the rest of the reasons :)

Fox Confirms Bones Season 5 Premiere Date

Fox confirms what Hart Hanson told us awhile ago: Bones Season 5 will premiere on Thursday, September 17th. It is NOT (also something HH already said) a 2 hour premier this year.

Let the Pre-emptions begin

Go ahead and get out your groaning and complaints - the pre-emption list has already started for this fall. These are expected (baseball does this every year) but if you're like me, any week without Bones is worth some fussing!

The potentially hardest hit will be Thursdays and Saturdays with up to three pre-emptions, while Tuesdays and Fridays will sit out just one week at most.

Thursdays
("Bones," "Fringe")
October 22 (ALCS Game #5, if necessary)
October 29 (World Series Game #2)
November 5 (World Series Game #7, if necessary)
Thanks, lorapalmer, for the heads up.

Kristen Spoils: Two items

This week's spoiler chat with Kristen at E! has back-to-back Bones questions down past the "Spoiler Line - Do Not Cross!" One involves Brennan, the other Angela.

Thanks, Mickey!

Vegdaily mentions Emily Deschanel

Vegdaily highlights the words of Emily Deschanel and her advice on being environmentally conscious (and Vegan). It's the same stuff we can see her say directly in this video, but any extra mentions of the stars is good for Bones!

Thanks, Mickey, for the heads up!

Hart Hanson on the Season 5 opener

Hart gives the unofficial title for the Season 5 Bones premier.

Kristen Spoils: Jared

Kristen asked Brendan Fehr about his Bones alter-ego Jared, and Season 5. (Scroll down just below the '24' picture.)

That Shark Rears Up Again

Sigh. As much as I hate to reference the finale again, TVGuide has put Bones on a list of Season finales and Shark Jumping. Even if you hated the finale maybe you can go vote for another show?

Obviously those who enjoyed the finale won't agree with the premise, but, for those who didn't enjoy it, do you think so badly of it that you would consider it "Jumping the Shark?"

Emily Deschanel in Monaco

Yvanne and Michelle both sent me some links for Emily Deschanel interviews and pictures in Monaco.

Emily Deschanel with fans in Monte Carlo

Thank you, Emilie, for this video of Emily Deschanel signing autographs and taking pictures with fans in Monte Carlo. Even with no makeup, she's beautiful! She does look a little tired, though. It can't be easy doing all that when, it looks like, you just want to go into your hotel.

Guest Reviewers - Calling on You!

I am taking Noah out all day today to visit various family members. (Eek!) So, I can't implement the suggestions yet or update today but I would like to get started on one of them: Guest Reviews!

I would like us to go classic and start with Bones Season 1. I've done a few reviews for the first episodes of that season, but I would like to open it up for any of you to email me a review for any of the Season 1 episodes. I'd like to get at least 1 for every episode, and then start posting them every couple of days. I'll wait a few days for people to start sending some in (or at least commitments to certain episodes) and then post again on which ones are empty. Please email me at obsessedwithbones@gmail.com with actual reviews. Commitments can be emailed or posted here in comments.

Posted reviews will, of course, be credited to you. Along with that I will happily link to your own website or blog, provided it is not x-rated, etc. (It does not have to be Bones-related at all but linking is at my discretion. I will be pretty open but I will say upfront that I will go look at the sites before I link to them.)

In between the episode talks we'll do some of the other ideas. Please check out this post if you have no idea what I'm talking about and then give me some more! :)

Emily Deschanel - coming to theaters soon!

I know many of you know this and have pointed it out, but I want to make sure that everyone knows (and remind the rest of you) that Emily Deschanel will be on the big screen soon with a small part in My Sister's Keeper. It will be released on June 26th. Emily plays the character Dr. Farquad.

What other works of Emily's have you seen and what would you recommend to others?

I, for one, love Cold Mountain. It is a painful, harsh film but it seems very well done and realistic. Emily is only in one short part of the movie, but she does a fantastic job.

Emmy Ballots are Out

Emily Deschanel "Breaking Bread"

Emily Deschanel is taking part in a show where celebrities discuss their favorite causes at dinner parties. She participated in a vegan discussion. No idea when it will air, at this point, but you can read about it here.

Thanks, Amanda, for the link.

Hart Hanson answers our questions for Variety

Hart Hanson took the Bones fan love and angst on in equal measure with a Q&A of fan-submitted questions for Variety. It's a very long interview, but worth a read! There are 'technically' spoilers in that he answers over-arching trend questions for Season 5, but I don't feel there is anything a spoiler-phobe would hate themselves for reading. At this point, with the opener not even written, it's all likely to change anyway.

Q. What is something you really want to do on the show but feel you would break the budget with if you even attempted to have it done? (Natashadelovely)
A. Oh, there’s so much we could do with more money. We’d like to be out in the world more, we’d like cooler effects, we’d like to use the Angelator more, we’d like to give David more action sequences, we’d like to do a “train” episode … it’s a very long list. In fact, we’d like to utilize some of our favorite guest stars even more. But this is a harsh world and somehow we have to use intelligence and creativity in place of budget to get the effects we want — money is a lot easier.

Holy Cow, People

First, let me say that I'm sorry I can't be as involved as I'd like in the blog right now. On the one hand, there's not much news anyway, but even still I wish I could keep things moving on a daily basis so that things don't degrade like they have.

I am appalled at the negativity and attacks that have been going on in some recent threads. Not only have some of you been unforgiving and harsh toward Hart Hanson and Emily Deschanel, you have also taken to attacking each other.

I. Can't. Believe. What. I'm. Reading.

Seriously, people. Why? What is the point? Can you not find one shred of the positive, or simply take the summer off to do something else? If negativity and hatefulness is all you have to share, why share anything? Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but if that's all you have toward the show, it's stars, and other fans, why are you still hanging around? Why come here and turn a positive site into something so frustrating, hateful, and devoid of joy?

I honestly don't know what to say right now. There's not much for me to post, other than a few tweets that confirm things like the Season 5 opener plot is being laid out, the show returns to production in 6 weeks or so, etc. At about that time, we will have spoilers to discuss as casting sides come out, there will be continual news, appearances cropping up, etc.

Until then, I am open to suggestions. How can we POSITIVELY pass the next couple of months? I really, really hope to pick up reviews again soon (I know I've said it for months and the hope and desire is still there - eventually results will come from it!) but there have to be other ways we can enjoy Bones as fans throughout the summer.

Contests? Wish lists? Scavenger hunts? Sharing posts like "Where are you from?" or Favorite fan fiction stories?

I'm open to ideas and help on this. I don't like what's been going on around here since the finale. OWB has always been different and I, for one, am not willing to just let it slide into the general, hateful atmosphere that other places embrace.

David Boreanaz talks to Daemon's TV

Daemon's TV has an interview with David Boreanaz. They talk Booth, directing, Bones renewal, Booth and Bones, the S4 finale, Our Lady of Victory and much more. From what I see, it is spoiler-free.

If you could guest star on any other show which one would it be?

David Boreanaz: Probably 'Damages'. I think that I really kind of would definitely want to do something like that. I'm still trying to get on that show. I know I told my agent that I'd really like to be on 'Damages' as a guest spot or something or kind of a small character that comes on. I just think it's a really, really smart piece. My mom told me about another one called 'Breaking Bad' which is another really great series. So one of those two.

Thanks, Fay, for the link!
