I absolutely LOVED Bones in the very first season. I admit I've missed many episodes but I watched one the other night and couldn't believe how "dumb" about social situations "Bones" STILL is. Honestly, shouldn't she have learned a thing or two about the real world by NOW? Quirky is one thing (don't get me wrong, I LIKE quirky, otherwise I wouldn't watch Dexter lol), but the writers seem to be moving from the sublime to the ridiculous. The show used to make me laugh, now it just makes me wince (mind you, I feel the same way about "House" these days lol). I rather suspect that both series have outlasted their primetimelifetimes.
As much as I love my friends, I won't jump off a bridge WITH them. Instead, I think it's in our mutual interest for one of us to try to catch the other when they fall.
