Storyline

Sam Nozik's beetles-eaten corpse in a Florida glade is identified from his acrylic eye. He worked in a Miami museum, from which a treasure map to a Spanish galleon was stolen. Booth grudgingly allows his superstitious former foreign army tour acquaintance Walter Sherman (and his team of two) to use his 'tracing gift' to find and retrieve the treasure. They do, after consulting bishop Edward Galano on period navigation, and find the corpse, but meanwhile the diver herself has been murdered too. Booth meanwhile comes to terms with his grudge against Walter as 'insensitive' MP. Written by KGF Vissers

Spin-off? Ouch
21 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

Sadly, this episode seems to be the wannabe spin-off version of "Bones." And it's a retread of the "The Glades" show, instead of an honest and interesting spin on a great show. Then again Criminal Minds just did their, ouch, a "C.S.I." spin-off (the leader stiffly played by Forest Whitaker using David Caruso's painful egoist drone, leading a semi-legal F.B.I unit with some foreign guy hoping American girls will find him as sexy as an Australian vacuum cleaner salesman).

The problem here is that Bones is a gem, expertly mixing two classic formulas against each other: the fish-out-of-water Special Agent Seeley Booth facing off with the fish-unaware-it's-fish Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan. Bones, as it is, is network programming at its best. But whoever came up this "pshyn-off" should be cowering in shame.

This proposed Bones spin-off offer is simply an I'm-So-Cool Iraq War vet Walter Sherman (played by shirt-shedding muscle boy Geoff Stults) with his bartendress/pilot/I'm-More-Than-Cool maybe-girlfriend Ike Latulippe (Ike? nickname for what?) (played by Brit model-maybe-actress/collagen-lip Saffron Burrows) and his lawyer(?) Leo Knox (ala Hunter Thompson's lawyer Oscar Zeta Acosta) (played by over-pumped-for-a-law-grad Michael Clarke Duncan). Ouch! Not exactly the delicate and develop-able character-driven intimacy of the original Bones crew. Now, I actually like Stults, Burrows, and Duncan as actors but this is stereotyping at its worst.

The preview of the spin-off is more like some bad pulp series of the 1980's. Sadly, based on this sneak peek, Geoff Stults, here, does not have the self-effacing intimacy that Mark Valley brings to "Human Target." The crew of Burrows and Duncan do not have the character depth to evolve and catch the viewers the way Bones itself has. Heck, Bones is six years of success and we're still waiting with bated breath as to what happens when Jack and Angela's child is born (and what Billy Gibbons' reaction will be - we actually care what a minor character thinks and fear his return).

While the USA Channel has the fish-out-of-water formula down to a tee, the networks are wading in the shallows with their programming. Even when they have a great formula like Bones, they don't know it and they don't know not to screw with it.

Actually, Emily Deschanel's sister Zooey's cotton commercial, shown during the show, held more interest than this episode. Then again, She and Him is a strange and fascinating variation off the typical pop collaboration.
