BONES: 4.07 “The Skull in the Sculpture”
Sorry my title’s lame. I had to use it at some point, right?
Anyway, Wednesday’s episode of Bones was good. To be honest, maybe it was the sickness I was fighting, but I couldn’t quite concentrate on it. I could concentrate on the main plot, but I kept missing one-liner after one-liner–which is unfortunate, because there were many. Fortunately, I TiVoed it, which meant that I had the rewind button.
The main one-liners happened to be from or in response to a returning guest star, Carla Gallo. Now, I love her. I watched her in Undeclared and a few episodes of Carnivale. I tend to really enjoy whatever she’s on. And she didn’t disappoint in Bones. She had that strange quirky side that all of the characters seem to have; unfortunately, to them, she’s just too obnoxious to keep around!
Oh, and she breaks things like skulls. Whoops.
But anyway, I’ll be disappointed that she won’t be the new Zack, but on the bright side, we still don’t have a new Zack! I love that they can’t seem to replace him. It’s such a fun little element they’ve brought into this season. I do wonder if Daisy will be returning anyway, if only because she’s Sweets’ sweetie.
The rest of the episode was straight-forward. I enjoyed seeing Vicki Lewis also guest. I must admit, at first I didn’t even recognize her. As a fan of NewsRadio, I’m prone to picking out alums, but she missed my sharp eye–even after I saw her name pass by the guest star list. Anyway, she did a great job, I’d say, even if she did smush a guy like a bug.
Sadly, I don’t have much else to say. I almost fear to say that I saw a little bit of the ending coming. I kinda could see that Vicki was going to be one of the suspects, despite everyone ignoring her. Perhaps it was her callous attitude? The fact that she didn’t care? I’m not sure. But I hope every episode isn’t so predictable.
And then there is Angela. It was interesting to see that she had a swinging side, but it didn’t grab my attention much. Then again, perhaps it’s because I’m fan of Buffy, so the whole lesbian kiss thing isn’t new to me. I suppose we needed to see that someone cared about the case and was fighting for someone–and that she’s still struggling with relationship troubles.
But Hodgins and the jaws of life: That was just great.
As always, I’m opening this up to thoughts from our veteran watchers. I’m still new, so let me know if you disagree or agree!
