Bones has made its fateful shark jump
25 January 2013 | by Jack ParkerSee all my reviews

This episode was one of the dumbest things I have seen in a long time. Bones has never been big on believability--I have always considered it to be a sci-fi show that doesn't bill itself as such--but it has really gone off the rails into Stupidville.

Seriously, with this most recent episode, the show couldn't have jumped the shark harder if they had been in orbit. The writer should never be allowed near a writing implement ever again--not even a cell phone that can text. If he so much as reaches for a pencil on the ground to give it back to the person who dropped it, he should be flogged.

I used to love this show, but it has run its course and it needs to end while it still has a shred of dignity.
