  • Because screw science, that's why.

    I wanna know who's responsible for this piece of crap! This WAS a show about scientists doing science. Every once in a while they'd cleverly toy with the idea of the supernatural by making it ambiguous; was Boothe talking to the ghost of Parker or was he hallucinating because of his brain tumor? Was Avalon psychic or just incredibly intuitive? This episode threw that all out the window. Yes, Avalon is psychic; psychics are real, as are ghosts and the afterlife, and yes, magic, of course. This is completely against t whole nature of the show, as well as the characters except for Boothe and Angela, whose spiritual beliefs, while ***ed, are real enough to them to make it a nice contrast to the stark realism and skepticism of the SCIENTISTS on the show. Good job on making Bones magical, fucktards, as if it wasn't suffering from stupendously lazy writing to begin with. I think I'm done with this show.
