House 6×12 — “Remorse”: This episode wasn’t as good as the last one, but it was still interesting. I actually liked the POTW stuff more than the personal stuff going on with House and his old school buddy, which was a change. Usually House himself is the biggest draw for me, but I wasn’t interested in yet another example of how he’s changing — only not enough to fess up about his feelings for Cuddy. Is this going to come up in every single ep?
So now that Cameron is gone, I guess it’s up to Thirteen to become the meddling, moralistic preacher of the team. WTF? That was totally out of line how she tried to tell the husband that the wife was cheating on him. No real doctor would ever get involved in a one-time patient’s life like that. It’s not as though Thirteen was this guy’s longtime family physician, right? She’s just part of their lives for a few days. And what’s with Thirteen and Foreman playing nice at the end of the ep? Please tell me that’s just so they can work together without tension. The last thing I want is for their “relationship” to resume!
Castle 2×14 — “The Third Man”: After a so-so ep last week, Castle was back with a vengeance this time around! I have to say that The Third Man is probably my favorite of the series thus far! It was great! The case itself was interesting, and all the stuff between Castle and Beckett was simply perfect. From Beckett’s initial reaction to the newspaper article to her realization that she needs a date to the way their dates played out in the same restaurant to how Beckett and Castle ended up walking out arm in arm for burgers… perfection!! They are officially my favorite couple-to-be on television! I love this show !
Bones 5×13 — “The Dentist in the Ditch”: This was a decent episode. I actually thought the mystery was interesting for once — despite the writer’s attempts to make sure we all know that even big, strong, manly men can be homosexuals. These guys were football players, Marines, firemen, etc. Yes, of course anyone can be a homosexual. Did we really need to be told that so explicitly?
Back to the ep. At first I thought the ex-boyfriend might have done it to cash in on the cheap term life insurance policy they’d been paying off, but then Booth pointed out that no, the guy wouldn’t have been entitled to those benefits anyway. I then thought it might have been the husband of the dental hygienist, going off in a jealous rage or something. But since we never met the guy that theory was out the window. I didn’t pick the contractor — but I guess the explanation made sense.
I hated the personal stuff because Booth’s brother bothers me. Who cares about him anymore?? They probably just needed him there so Bones could see how she’s having a negative affect on Booth and then make her “I know what love is” speech. Barf.
