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.

A bunch of my LJ friends LOVE Bones. In fact, have you been to visit keytuskids? I've been meaning to invite you over for a while, I think you'd fit in nicely with the rest of us looneys West Wing fans. ;-)

Anyway, as I was saying, some of the group there just adores Bones, and they've been trying to recruit a few more watchers, to have some good discussion threads. I've seen a couple of eps in the early seasons, and although I'm wary of procedurals, I have to say that I actually like it--it was sucking me in. (Now, I just have to watch a few other things first, to make room for it. Like...BSG. I'm never gonna catch uuuuuuuppppp!)

If you want to pop over and say hi, please do! I'll be in and out of the thread tonight--I'm watching some Avatar--but no one bites, and there might even be virtual muffins in it for you. :-)

I'm glad to hear there are some other people out there who like Bones. It makes me feel better about trying it out.

I've heard of keytuskids, but I haven't visited yet. Actually, I used to lurk around the Josh and Donna thread on Television Without Pity sometimes (Wow, that seems like ages ago!), so I remember when the community was first formed.

I know it's silly of me, but for some reason I get nervous about posting on new communities. I trust you when you say no one bites, so I promise to drop by for a bit and check it out!

Yay, you came over! :-)

*whew!* I'm glad you already had some background...I was wondering how much to overwhelm confuse you with!

Did you ever post at TWoP?

Did you ever post at TWoP?

Hardly ever. Maybe a few times in some of the episode threads, but that's about it. I mostly just read everyone else's comments!
