FOX (ended 2002)
As I promised, here are a few pictures of things that reminded me of TXF in London last week:
I was taking that M&S picture for YOU guys only despite the way everyone was looking at me!!!
|I agree Piper.... Nothing is ever good enough for us after watching TXF... Especially for those of us who have been a phile from day one... The X Files has spoiled a lot for us... Romance is never gonna be good enough for us either.... hahahaha.....|
I was an X-Phile since day one, but I have finally found a show that has surpassed The X-Files and that show is Bones. In fact, I was looking for a show that was similar to Moonlighting. You see, I only discovered Moonlighting a few months ago. I did watch a handful of episodes in the '80s, but I was too young to understand the jokes and such. I decided to watch the whole series again and boy was it good. I never thought that I would ever like a show more than TXF, but Moonlighting was beyond my expectations. I thought that DD and GA had the best chemistry until I saw Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis creating sparks. Now I understand why every couples with sexual tensions are compared to Maddie and David; they were truly amazing together.
After watching all five seasons of Moonlighting on DVD twice in a row, I had nothing else to watch. I don't know why, but I don't feel like re-watching TXF even though I haven't seen it in years and have all nine seasons. I was looking for a show that is airing at the moment and many people have mentioned Bones as being similar to Moonlighting. I was skeptical at first because I don't like procedural dramas and Bones looks exacly like a typical procedural drama with all the scientific forensic investigations, but this time the emphasis is on bones. I also wasn't too attracted to the actors. I didn't like Bones at first, but since there was absolutely nothing else on TV that was remotely interesting to me, I gave it a few more tries. It's funny that in the pilot, Agent Booth said "we're Mulder and Scully". I said to myself: "great, Moonlighting with a touch of TXF". After watching about five episodes, I was hooked in a big way. I now LOVE David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel and I like the rest of the cast very very much. Unlike Moonlighting and TXF, Bones' supporting cast and characters are all interesting and likeable. I like that they're like a family at a work place.
So Bones kind of reminds me of TXF, but the Brennan/Booth relationship is actually more like Maddie/David from Moonlighting and I find that more fufilling. With Mulder/Scullly, it took so much time to gain ground that I got frustated and felt like giving up on them. By the ninth season, I didn't care anymore.
apart from my collectiion sitting on top of the TV?
