Another new low
18 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

At least forensic part of the story was much better than the last two episodes. But what we gained in science department, we lost in affairs. It seems that Brennan's character took a dive back to her stone age when she wasn't able to have emotions. Her stupid part took control of her logic and forced her to act childish. She wasn't definitely acting like the one we have seen improved through last seasons. Booth character is more close to what we have seen before with a little bit of comic stupidity and less control and punch lines. Specially his excitement over a monkey was a tad too childish. If bones moves more in this direction, it can expect to attract more teen fans and less adult which is revolutionary considering the age of its actors.
