A corpse found roasted in a neighborhood party barbecue pit is identified as missing dentist Kurt Bissette. He had not only upset neighbors with his windmill and by nearly poisoning the gay couple's dog but probably was a blackmailer. Trey Johnson, the owners society's handsome young gardener, isn't the only one enjoying residents' infidelity, which isn't the only possible secret or motive either. Meanwhile young Parker seems worried about Booth's lack of female company. Sweets figures out why Arastoo faked his accent. Written by KGF Vissers

The Monkees did it first
10 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B investigate the death of a man in a very proper suburban neighborhood. The writers try very hard to condemn the suburban lifestyle. The Monkees did this, too, way back in the 1960s. Here, it falls a bit flat -- and stale. The suspects are virtually everyone living on the block, of course, as the dead neighbor was pretty much universally despised. Booth's son angles to get his father a girlfriend. And Brennan's latest intern, a Muslim, isn't quite who he seems to be. Brennan, meanwhile, is still socially inept five years into the series, and Angela must come to her rescue. Again. Doctor Sweets, who started out as the show's comic relief, here helps the murder investigation and deals with the Muslim intern who is not who he appears to be.
