King of the Lab - Screencap Trivia

I am way overdue for one of these!

Can you name the episode?

Comparing Bones to Moonlighting & The Thin Man

It's not unusual for Bones to be compared to other TV male/female pairings. Most often, this is Moonlighting because both shows are pretty heavy with UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension).

People who make these comparisons (even some prominent players in the show) keep asking if themselves, the creators, and the fans if getting Booth and Brennan together as a couple will instantly result in a Moonlighting Fiasco, which went downhill quickly once the main characters slept together. Some people think it might ruin the show, some other people think B&B would look like Nick and Nora, from The Thin Man Series, a married couple that seem to be bickering all the time, still showing a lot of love for each other and solving crimes in a special and funny way.

This is the question posed by Milky, after a discussion with ForensicMama. Milky has sent me a few videos to show how the interactions played out on Moonlighting and The Thin Man series, to help you judge for yourself.

So, feel free to comment away with your opinions. What do you think the fallout might be, if any, from such a pairing. Do you think the comparisons are fair?

Please, keep this post spoiler free so everyone can enjoy it!
