Anyone watching Bones? Spoilers through current episode.

Is anyone watching?

I enjoyed the premiere, although it was definitely a wrap up the cliffhanger and set up the season story. I kept hoping they wouldn't drag out the Bones on the run stuff past the premiere and I was very happy they didn't. I still think Max is going to kill Pelant. What's the deal with the other FBI guy? Are we supposed to think he's in on it with Pelant?

The actor playing Pelant has done a great job - that guy is seriously creepy.

I still don't think Booth & Brennan have any chemistry. They had great chemistry before they were a couple, but their kisses don't seem to work.

The bit at the end seemed to indicate the FBI guy was definitely not on the up and up.

My wife still watches Bones. I gave up some time ago. I just couldn't put up with Ms. Literal any longer.

That guy is never on the up and up in any show he is in.

Well, true, but that is cheating!

She's lost so much of that, and her coldness, that she's arguably a different character. Probably, as is standard for network TV, she's been "fixed" to make her more appealing to women.

She's not Ms. Literal, she's Dr. Brennan.

I wonder why they changed the theme song. It had been the same until now, hasn't it?

I'm glad they resolved the cliffhanger and now hope the show will get back to the crime of the week storylines.

I hate Brennan and Booth as a romantic couple because as the OP said, they just don't have that kind of chemistry.

I stopped watching at the end of last year and got rid of my season pass. The show just went down hill for me once they got together.

It's still one of my favorite shows. I am glad the "brennan on the run" line was wrapped up quickly!

So at e end of tonight's episode, they had an obit for the guy who played Leo on The Finder.

I guess it is god they canceled that. It would not have been good without Leo.

I didn't like this episode. The lack of romantic chemistry between them makes it hard to enjoy an episode about their relationship. I don't know if the problem stems from the portrayal of Brennan's character or not, but the couple scenes leave me cold.

I think the problem is Brennan. There's nothing romantic about her, that's just the way she is. Her irrationality about the kid isn't helping matters. This Brennan is much more like how she was in season 1, before the character was softened to try and get more female viewers.

What's weird is that they had great chemistry before they got them together. If they had only kept that they would be more believable, but it seems as if they (or she, as you suggest) have gone backwards.

Relationships evolve, their relationship has evolved. Kids change everything.... and for me, their relationship is just about where I thought it would be ... especially after her being gone with the kid for 3 months. For me, whats going on right now is realistic and believable!

I like them together. Booth has enough chemistry for the two of them. ;-)

But their kisses? Painful.

"The Gunk in the Garage"

It was an OK episode. Booth & Brennan didn't bother me - I think what they portrayed of their relationship worked better in this ep. Maybe it's as Robin says and their kisses are just painful to watch.

I loved Hodgins in this episode. His glee in his work is so much fun to watch. It was nice to see Sweets get some time out of the others' shadows.
