So... I'm mildly obsessed with Bones, the TV show, you know the one. I love it. Granted, some of the terms they use go right over my head, but I'm almost always learning something.
Now. I'm working my way through the first four series again, currently up to Episode 13 in the first series. Despite mum and I watching it weekly when it started it seems like I missed a lot of them. So it's brilliant catching up with all the bits I missed.
I think, personally, that Dr Temperance Brennan is a better role model than most of the protagonists in TV, books, and movies, despite her distinct lack of social skills, especially in the early seasons. She's smart, she's capable, she can stand up for herself. She doesn't take peoples crap and she cares, even if she cant put it into words all the time.
Also, I didn't realise who the actress who plays Brennan is. Emily Deschanel, the older sister of one of my friends favourite people, Zooey Deschanel. I don't like Zooey... I find her annoying and unbelievable. I've not heard her sing. Apparently she does that too. Of the sisters I much, much prefer Emily. It doesn't hurt that she's beautiful.
The Deschanel sisters.
I adore the relationship between Brennan and Booth... There is a constant undercurrent of sexual tension, that is joined by at first frustration and not long after compassion, concern and a deep root of feeling. They care about each other, even if they wind each other the hell up. It's brilliantly written, and well acted. You believe in them and their relationship, you want them to get together from the off set and the more you learn about them the more you love them. Despite their, occasionally annoying, personality traits they are believable and loveable.
