FOX (ended 2007)
|I thought this was a great ep... |
Note to other Bones fans: The senator, was in 'Aliens in a Spaceship' (I still think he was the Gravedigger), but i hated him there and I hated him here.
I still wish this show wasn't cancelled.
This was an excellent episode for a few reasons - besides a great performance by Ron Livingston, the two young guest stars Will Rothaar and Aldis Hodge handled their roles perfectly. While the senator was a type-cast crooked politician, the unexpected agenda of Nathan trying to save a juvenile detention center that was actually working made up for it. I was happy to see some reality force its way into Matt and Emily's relationship. It is only logical that they would have some sort of professional disagreement that, because of the personal nature of their relationship, would feel like a betrayal to one of them.
Although, morally, Matt was right, I can't see a police negotiator actually stepping that far outside the lines on behalf of a hostage taker. But I did think the single best scene in the episode what Matt's conversation with Lia, and how she saw through his every attempt to use his "skills" to manipulate her. If the writers had pulled off more eps like this one earlier in the season, this series might have had a chance.

It sure could have gone any way at all - death, mayhem, I was actually expecting the young man Nathan was "protecting" to die, not to be the one who killed Rome. I love being surprised by great writers!
Absolutely agree with you. This was the best episode of the entire season: the writing, directing, acting -- all excellent. It was the first time I wouldn't answer the phone during the broadcast. We had no way of knowing what the outcome would be - it could have gone either way. This is stuff great series are made of. Four stars.
i liked that scene alot 2!!! and I wish that if the show went on more (which its not... grr!), that it would feature more of Lia, Duff or Frank. Like get Lia in a hostage situation or get Duff or Frank shot. That was kind of one of my epi ideas: Get Lia held hostage, Emily and Matt try to get her out of there, the captor shoots Duff and gets him put into the hospital. When Lia gets rescued she visits Duff and romance blossoms! I am a total fan of Duff/Lia
OH THATS GOOD holli63..i like that idea alot
