  • The Mystery of Life

    How can this episode be anything but a 10? And the case was good too. :) I'm not sure exactly what to say about the show, but I'd like to try, because I think it can't help but be a break from all of the awful happenings that are in the news these days.

    I've heard it said that each new birth is God's affirmation of the future and the closing scenes not only reaffirm the future, but also the priceless value of family and true friends. I won't say anything more about the "place of birth" so as to not leave a spoiler, so I'll just say that for Dr. Brennan to describe it "the perfect place" and to see the mystery of life in it all is, well, perfect.

    I've always believed that science and faith shouldn't be at odds with each other and here it all comes together - perfectly.
