Sticks & Stones

I think I might have a new show.  Maybe.  Possibly.  We'll see.

I am not normally a fan of procedural dramas -- I watch House fairly regularly and I will catch the occasional episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, but that's about it.  The other night I caught the last 20 minutes of an older episode of Bones, and I was pleasantly surprised.

The quality of the dialogue doesn't compare to The West Wing, but it's definitely better than a lot of the crap on TV right now.  David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel have really great chemistry.  The banter between Booth and Brennan is a little bit reminiscent of a certain other couple...I don't think I need to tell you who I mean.  I watched tonight's new episode and Booth actually tried to sabotage one of Brennan's dates.  Hmmm, sound familiar to anyone?

No show could ever rival The West Wing, but I have been looking for a new drama to watch for a while now.  I'm going try out Bones for a few weeks and see if it sticks.  I'll let you know if this potential new "relationship" works out.
