Schmidt: I'll be, like, your guide.
Jessica Day: Like Gandalf... through Middle Earth?

Jessica Day: Except Sméagol...

The autopsy scenes from Bones have more laughs.
21 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The show as is should never have made it to air. Over the top performances all around just make you wince and wonder why you are still watching this... but it's Zooey Deschanel from 500 days of Summer so it must get better... it doesn't.

The show is flawed from the concept to casting.

Forget the bad writing, faulty premise, forced performances, caricature characters, juvenile humour, etc... This was a squandered opportunity given the talent of the star. The show would have worked better if they stuck to what's worked well for her in her past films. Quirky is good... but this is... forget it... it just doesn't work.

The sad thing is the supporting actors are all refugees from other failed shows and the writer's claim to fame is not exactly impressive either (No strings attached).

I guess the show could be retooled at this late stage but it would probably be better to just forget it ever happened. I know I am trying to.
