Before I make any comment I'd just like to say total repect to HH for creating a show which I absolutely love to watch, however...
Apparently the fact that the show has more viewers reflects well on the S4 finale. Well, each to their own with the finale, I really didn't like it, won't stop me watching though. I do think that viewing figures, especially for that show had more to do with all the pre show talk which HH helped to keep going than with the quality of the episode. Which leads me on to my next point...
If HH says he's never going to say what is going to happen in the show (which is fair enough even though I am the nosiest person on the planet and love to know in advance), then why doesn't he just stick to 'I'm not saying' rather than come out with ambiguous statements (maybe its got something to do with those viewing figures again). I mean he said the other day that he was surprised that people thought Booth had amnesia and it wasn't meant to appear that way, yea right! If it wasn't meant to appear that way then what would the whole cliffhanger thing be that Emily took great delight in telling people about.
To be honest I'm starting to get a bit sick of the whole B&B thing, its wearing thin and there are other characters in the show. I've said it before and I'll say it again that there is absolutely no reason why they can't put the characters together romantically, yes it would be a challenge to the writers but I'm sure they could rise to it. I think its more unbelievable that after four years they are still dancing round each other like a pair of young teenagers, personally speaking if I was in Brennan's shoes it would have taken about a week, or maybe two if I was playing hard to get!
Talking of Brennan I cannot agree that she has got better with people etc, I've been watching the earlier seasons recently and she was actually more emotional and feeling then to some extent, what about 'Boy in the Bush' and 'Boy in the Shroud' she showed great empathy in both. I think nowadays she can be quite unfeeling and a bit callous, I mean she has basically called Booth a loser and stupid this season, and there have been times when I've really felt she needed a slap. I think she was also more quirky and individual when the show first started. Also, again I've said this before, how can she possibly be a best selling crime writer when she's so clueless with a lot of modern cultural references. This is not a swipe at Emily by the way who I think is excellent, its more a pop at the writing.
Finally I'm not sure I like the whole romantic comedy thing either, I must have missed when the show went into that genre. Yes it does have elements of that, and I like the comedy, particularly from TJ by the way. However, I much prefer David B as Booth when he's being sincere and caring then when he's being comedy Booth who comes across as a bit two dimensional.
Anyway that's all just my opinion and whatever happens I'm going to carry on watching although I have to say that 'Lie to me' is creeping up there in my affections at the mo.
Catch you later
