  • Bones has just jumped the shark.

    I've never stopped watching an episode of Bones before the end, until the kid starts singing about where the soul resides, as if we didn't get what the episode was trying to say yet. Terrible. Silly gimmick that really had no place on an episode of Bones, where science and faith are supposed to be privileged equally--unlike here, where a writer who loves the illogic of a soul hanging around its dead body for two years; where the soul/ghost POV is deployed to mock rational thought. Whatever -- might as well make Brennan a witch doctor and be done with it. Terrible. And corny. Deserves a minus score.
