Life is Better With This Show in It

Bones is back tonight!!  Bones is back!!  This is my favorite show.  Oh, and don’t get me started about Zack. Wait, I have to find what I originally said.  Okay, I got myself started. Here’s what I said at the end of last season:

“I read an interview with the creator saying something along the lines of “as long as it gets people talking.” I hate when people justify bad moves with this kind of logic. You could have Seeley plunge a knife into the heart of Bones, killing her instantly, and that would have people talking, but does it make narrative, emotional sense? I loved the whole Gormogon thread, and to wrap it up so hastily and badly and with Zack as the apprentice? Zack?? Come on. Please. That was out of nowhere and is simply not plausible, there is no history to explain Zack going along with this serial killer AND committing murder. It was just so stupid, from a show that has never been stupid. What happened to everyone over there? Seriously. What pushed you to this? I know you know better.”

I stand by everything I said.  I’m heartbroken still over the loss of Zack.  Even if they bring him back, we have lost the Zack we knew.  That said, I’m still in.  They made a mistake, A VERY BAD MISTAKE, but I’m still in.  Let’s see what they do now.
