At the beginning of part II, when Booth is asking Bones why she doesn't appreciate the ancient appeal of Britain, he says he'd like Congress to make him a Knight. U.S. Constitution specifically forbids any such thing in the last paragraph of Article I, Section 9. And if by some chance the Queen of England offered to make him a Knight of the Realm, it would require a special Act of Congress before he could accept it. But this is just a Booth's fantasy, so lack of compliance with the law is not an error. See more »
Countless American TV series have done an episode or episodes set in England, so why not BONES? B&B head for England to lecture, and come across a grisly murder that leads to all sorts of complications as it involves royalty and mixed-up bloodlines. Just as they solve this case, a second murder comes up that delays their return. This one involves a professor and an archeology dig in Kensington. Meanwhile, back home Angela's husband shows up and all sorts of problems ensue. About half the episode seems to be focused on Angela. Normally, I wouldn't mind, as I like Angela, but this one gets soggy and soapy and drawn-out. I came to realize as of this episode that I am not as intrigued by Angela as I was originally. She's interesting, but not that interesting. Back in London, Booth can't get the hang of driving on the left. Where have we seen that before? Oh yes, in about 500 movies and TV shows.
