New Blog Continuing the OWB Spirit

Just a quick note to let everyone know Anna has created a new Bones blog:

Bones Addict

She hopes to continue the spirit of OWB with another great place for Bones fans to hang out. Check it out :)

Happy Season 6 Bonesday! (a first, and a last)

Bones Season 6 returns tonight! I hope everyone enjoys it, and Season 6 becomes a fan favorite.

Unfortunately, the beginning of the new season also marks the end of OWB.

It's been a great 2+ years and I have made some amazing friends (Jeannie, Jamie, Lindsey, Mindy...just to name a few) but it is over for me. And for OWB.

A lot has changed over the last two years in the Bones fan community, and some things haven't changed. 206 Bones still goes strong, and the Bones Spoilers Blog is a Season 5 newcomer powerhouse. The ABY is still there, as is Searching Bones. Some things change, and some things come anew.

And some must go.

For those who don't care about the motivations I will lay out the gist now so you can stop reading: there will be no more posts here, though the archive of posts and reviews will remain indefinitely, and commenting will remain open for the time being.

For the motivations....

Some of it's been building for awhile - life is incredibly busy. I have a 16 mo old little boy who I love and want to spend time with. I have a husband of almost 5 years who I love and want to spend time with. I have a job that is fulfilling in many ways but it is incredibly demanding (some days I work from 5 am to 9+pm with only short family/food breaks). I don't have a social life and I struggle to keep up with email.

There's just not time for OWB. It was my baby for nearly 2 years, and I supported it in the background for the last few months.

My helpers have their own varyingly busy lives as well and the time is right to just call it done.

Remembering the passion I had for Bones when I started this show, I can say that if I still had the same love for it I would find a way to keep OWB going. But I don't have that passion any longer. Hart Hanson has spoken of keeping the tension tight for fans, that it is the only reason we watch.

My tension wire snapped last season and I don't care to put it back together.

I'm tired of the direction of the show. I'm tired of the argument that you have to keep throwing up roadblocks to keep fans interested. (I can think of 2 other shows in my own favorites currently laughing at that argument.) I'm tired of the rotating interns and miss Zack. I'm tired of so many things. It's just not the show I fell in love with. I feel like it's trying to become a smarter, more grown-up show (read: typical) instead of the lovable geekfest it was before.

I simply stopped looking forward to the show and at best it's become DVR'able. I can no longer call it life-stoppable.

I can't head a blog that is devoted to obsessing about Bones when I no longer have the obsession.

I could go on and on and on and on and on. But that's not why you visit this blog and I have a lovely little boy who wants his breakfast. I'm not here to say "Bones is awful, boycott it" or anything of the sort. It's not awful, but I just don't find it great anymore and I'm going to step away.

If you still love it, then LOVE IT! I totally support all passion for the show and would never want to get in the way of that in any way.

I have really enjoyed the community that built up around this blog - seeing regular posters, getting email tips, seeing fan blogs pop up in other languages... it's been wonderful and I hope that continues to grow.

I also have hopes for the future, that in a few weeks or a few months that I will fall back in love with the show. I hope it will be great again for me and for anyone out there who feels the same.

Enjoy Bones Season 6!

And 7, 8, 9, and 10 as well, right? :)

Yes, folks, Bones star Emily Deschanel has won her second consecutive EWwy for Best Actress in a Drama, this year destroying the competition with 56.2 percent of the vote.

Kathy Reichs and her children, all writers, have done an interview for a Charlotte, NC radio station.

Kathy Reichs is a bestselling novelist many times over. Add to that distinction credits as a screenwriter, television producer and much sought after Forensic Anthropologist. Now she has a new distinction; the matriarch of what is quickly becoming a literary family. Her daughter, Kerry, is the author of two books and now Kathy has teamed with her son Brendan to write a new series for young adults called Virals. Kathy comes back to visit, but this time she is joined by the other writers in this literary family. The Reichs join us to talk about writing, collaborating and togetherness.

Guest star change

There is another change to the potential storyline coming up. Ausiello gives us the story from Stephen Nathan.

What do you think of this? Are you relieved or disappointed?

Cryptic pictures now, too!

What do the stars earn?

TVGuide has posted a list of the 'top earners' in TV. David Boreanaz is listed in the middle as a 'modest' $200,000/episode (definitely modest compared to some on there!).

I do think this is more a sampling of salaries rather than a 'top earners' list. It looks like they are picking only one star from most shows to demonstrate the different salaries stars can command based on popularity, i.e. ratings. I would think that if Emily Deschanel doesn't match him exactly in earnings, she is really close!

Thanks, Emilie, for the link!

Will They or Won't They? according to FOX

FOX has put out a gallery of Booth and Brennan photos that claims to give evidence supporting the likelihood of a big romance.

We've all wondered if the obvious romantic spark between Booth and Brennan would ever burst into a full romantic blaze. Check out the following evidence that suggests that it could.
We at Obsessed With Bones want to know how many mistakes you can find in this photo gallery. Have fun!

TV Guide Magazine's photo booth at TCA

TV Guide Magazine had a photo booth at the Television Critics Association party a couple days ago. It looks like David Boreanaz may be the only Bones star that got in on the action.

Behind the Scenes - Set photos

Wouldn't you just love to take a good look around the whole Royal Diner? Brennan's Office? Booth's Office? Be honest: you want to lay on an exam table on the platform just like Zack did in The Widow's Son in the Windshield, don't you!?

Photo courtesy of Josh Levy's (amazing assistant to Hart Hanson) twitpic. I guess he's picking up some extra money working in the Royal Diner.

Any new spoilers?

Spoiler lovers are looking for something new. Does Ausiello have it for us? He attempts to answer three fan questions here regarding Dr. and Mrs. Hodgins, new villains, and characters for the season.

In his non-spoiler information: In related news, sources confirm to me exclusively that Hart Hanson is legally changing his name to Teasy McTeaserson.
...followed quickly by: This Just In: Hart Hanson is changing his name yet again. He will now be known as Cryptic McCrypticson.

Couples who should break up

Buddy TV just isn't feeling the love right now. They've made a list of the top 10 TV couples who should break up. Where does Bones make the list?

#1 Booth and Any Woman Other Than Brennan, Bones

The fans who want Booth and Brennan together are more rabid than anyone, so any woman Booth dates is guaranteed to be the most hated lady on TV. Until Brennan comes around, Booth should just stay off the market.
Does anyone agree?

Emily Deschanel on Brennan being vegetarian

The Vegetarian Star gives us a little background about Brennan being a vegetarian as opposed to being vegan like ED herself.

“I can’t remember if it was my idea or not. I didn’t want her to become vegan–and she’s vegetarian for health reasons, not because of animal rights. It’s important to keep a separation between actor and character. I do always ask for episodes touching on animal rights in the same way. And I ask that there’s a character to present the case for animals in every episode.”
You can find the whole article here.

Hart Hanson Interview from Comic-Con

This is a couple days old, but I know a lot of you like to see what you can while remaining spoiler free. Since Hart Hanson prefers not to reveal spoilers, this is a fairly safe interview.

At 2:05, he reveals a few spoilers regarding whether or not we'll see any of Maluku or Afghanistan and how they film certain settings.
That moves right into 3:17: talk about casting spoilers.
By about 4:20, he's finished with spoilers and wraps up the interview talking about how long he'd like to see the show run as well as answering the age-old question of when/if he wants to see Booth and Brennan get together.

Please keep comments on this post spoiler-free!

Emily Deschanel's plans for directing

Details are becoming more solid for which episode Emily Deschanel will direct. She has some very specific plans! E!Online gives us information straight from last night's party. (Spoiler alert for this link. Below are the spoiler-free parts.)

So what plans does Emily Deschanel have for her Bones co-star David Boreanaz when she becomes his big boss this season?

To make David as miserable as he made her when he was playing Mr. Fancy Pants Director.

Yes, Emily is directing her very first Bones episode this fall. And of course, as usual with these two, all this ribbing was in good fun. (Note: These two have the most siblingest relationship of any co-stars on television...So much so that it merits the invention of a fancy new word!)

I met up with David and the lovely Emily last night at the Fox party, and they dished on Emily's directorial debut, their real-life, love-hate friendship and...[spoiler alert for the rest of the article AND videos]
