It is because Murder She Wrote is after it
He doesn't understand a word of Bones, but he enjoys the company
My friend wants to set me up with her friend. While I'm not opposed to this (I facebook creeped her and she's pretty cute), I don't know what's the best way to go about this. My friend is having a party the first week of April that she's apparently going to be at, but should I have my friend give me her number and call her to meet up before this party? Get her email adress? Or should I try and have my friend set up a meeting with like a bunch of people?

Always love a good story from KY-3. Do they still have that old drunk Ned Reynolds doing sports?
Just meet her at the party.
...and don't be so weird.
Good news everyone: with my new job, my weekday posting is going to be severely diminished.

We watch Bones as well.
Also according to the Bones episode last night:
-Baltimore is in AA county
-Drivers with the last name beginning with C have a drivers license number beginning with G.
-Dates on drivers licenses don't include years.
I watched Bones with my wife for the first 7 seasons-- I never really "liked" the show, but it was always kind of harmless and watchable until this last season. After a couple of episodes, I just had to pull the plug and tell my wife to watch it sometime without me, it was actually making me feel stupider by the minute. It might be the first time I've completely given up on a show after having so many seasons invested.
This is why I watch "Castle," because the story lines are much more believable. Like last night's episode, a cop was able to infiltrate the NYC Irish mob and become the #2 guy in a matter of 48 hours. When he was finally pressed to commit a crime he basically said "it's cool guys, i'm a cop, and you're all under arrest." And then went home and kissed his wife. The end.
If you don't think an artist who was hired to do facial reconstructions and then starts creating computer programs that can ping which cell phones go to which server, replicate any crime scene instantaneously and recreate faces in a weird dust falling hologram machine is completely believable...I don't know what to tell you.
They should just change the name of the show to "Angela" and have her solve crimes during a lunch break.
Yeah, the show has always had a lower believability level and gravitas than Angel/Buffy. It's never been a "good" show or anything, but now its like drinking a mug of unfiltered stupid.
Bones is not shot in DC, and it is clear the writers have never actually been there. My favorite was the character who repeatedly pronounced "Anacostia" with a soft-t, like Nova Scotia. Then again, Bones takes place in world where the Los Angeles Natural History Museum has been relocated to the National Mall, renamed the Jeffersonian, and serves primarily as a forensics adjunct to the FBI.
With a portion of the holodeck mixed in and a per-case budget that would give CSI fits of jealous rage.
Despite the ridiculous amounts of nonsense, a lot of the science references are accurate (according to my wife).
I can't stand the chick and the baby is a death knell for the show anyway, but its a time filler until The Following comes on to show us what real tv writing is all about.
More funny reviews...
"For decades I have been trying to come up with an ideal way to slice a banana. "Use a knife!" they say. Well...my parole officer won't allow me to be around knives. "Shoot it with a gun!" Background check...HELLO! I had to resort to carefully attempt to slice those bananas with my bare hands. 99.9% of the time, I would get so frustrated that I just ended up squishing the fruit in my hands and throwing it against the wall in anger. Then, after a fit of banana-induced rage, my parole officer introduced me to this kitchen marvel and my life was changed. No longer consumed by seething anger and animosity towards thick-skinned yellow fruit, I was able to concentrate on my love of theatre and am writing a musical play about two lovers from rival gangs that just try to make it in the world. I think I'll call it South Side Story."

The introduction of a baby storyline is the death knell for any show, I don't know why Hollywood writers continue to make that same mistake. I think writers like the pregnancy storyline, but have no idea what to do with the baby once they have the inevitable birth-in-a-cab episode. At least on Angel, they solved that problem by having the infant sucked into Hell only to return as an anti-social teenager with abandonment issues (not sure if that approach would work on Bones, however)
Weird story locally where a guy for no apparent reason just starts stabbing people. The comments to the article naturally turned immediately to gun control and Obama. I want to know what the hell was going on in this guy's head where he felt like stabbing strangers was the answer.
"I live in Pittsburgh!"
So what you're saying is we should avoid adding a baby to the Pittsburg, Meet Pittsburgh plot?
Jdawg, write that down.
