    Wow. A forensic television show where a DNA comparison takes 10 days.

    Notice that there wasn't a single "I don't know what that means"...

    ...from Brennan, at least. Booth said something like that several times when the scientists were going over the evidence...

    A lot of things finally came together in this one, I thought. I found myself thinking "this show is getting good", quite a pleasant surprise..

    Which probably means Fox cancels it any day now.

    This is a great show. Though my favorite character isn't one of the leads, its Angela. I hope they develop her a bit more.

    Agreed - it's getting much, much better... a very well written ep, including a twist that I didn't see coming. Brennen's three assistants are actually getting a chance to flesh out their characters a bit, providing the show with some much needed whimsy, like the brief but altogether believable cockroach races. I used to work in a lab, and that's just the kind of stuff we used to do at the end of the day.

    True. But she still beat someone up. I think she's done that in every ep so far. BTW, I don't think she should have a gun. :D

    But this time breaking the guys wrist served the plot and theme, and wasn't just thrown in like before. The need to offer violence in response to violence, esp. when it looks like the guy was going to get away with it. .. Can be read a couple different ways but does make her support for the death penalty a little disturbing, as if its just a need for vengenace. And who would have thought this show could go that deep?

    I agree that her breaking his wrist served the plot. But it would have had more impact if it wasn't her typical behavior.

    You mean "the squints" ;) :D

    I just did a marathon of bones this holiday weekend and it seems that each epi gets better and better. I'm really liking Dr. Brennan, but think she's better as a dark haired brunnette.
