Storyline

Dixie ex-con Finn Abernathy, a genius, joins the team and impresses even Bones. He has to face hard questions about his past and morality but soon bonds with initially hostile Hodges. The case is that of a female eating competitions champion, whose corpse is being eaten from the inside by a live snake. Booth concentrates on her rivals for the impending Gluttony Games, a premiere with a $10,000 prize, her husband and hard-handed manager Brian Tobin. Everyone tries to make Bones understand she must take account of Booth's emotions as a proud father-to-be. Written by KGF Vissers

Worst Squintern...
17 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...ever. I guess if you've never spoken to or heard someone from the South, the dialog and dialect reminiscent of early 20th century Hollywood southern characters might pass for something other than a cartoon. A genuine trailer trash representative would have sounded, if not smart, at least southern. Please lose this character and bring back some of the other squinterns or at least explore new ones that have some remote authenticity. I realize this is a fairly silly show, but come on.

Apparently, a review requires a minimum of 10 lines of text and my rant didn't make the cutoff. I've not actually made it to the end of this episode yet, but the moronic dialog and delivery were so bad I had to start writing to divert my attention so that I might make it to the end. Maybe he'll get offed or get diverted to prison by the end of the episode. That would be lovely. And maybe this makes my review long enough to pass muster.

Time has passed and I've now finished the episode. It looks like this character is poised to come back and, after seeing him develop over the course of the episode, I... can't pretend to have changed my mind. Awful is all I can say. But hey. Maybe I can save the occasional hour of my life when I turn on Bones, only to discover that this character is featured.
