I guess that’s not entirely true, I’m just really frustrated by all the cliffhangers. But that’s the idea, right? It seems like lots of finales are happening earlier this year than they usually do. So far we’ve said goodbye (for the summer) to New Girl, Bones, How I Met Your Mother, Hawaii Five-0, Private Practice and Suburgatory, just to name a few. And tonight, Grey’s Anatomy and The Mentalist are both wrapping up. I already know Grey’s is going to be one of the most frustrating finales ever; I’ve come to terms with this. But here’s a run-down of some of the others…
New Girl | Not surprising at all – Nick and Jess still aren’t together. I’m ok with this, though, because I get that it shouldn’t happen right away. I’m just glad Nick didn’t end up moving in with Caroline. If they had ended it with them together I may have screamed.
It’s been a busy week, and sadly my TV-watching has suffered! I have yet to watch the eliminations from The Voice; but thanks to Twitter I know who went home. I still plan to watch and write about it, so stay tuned for that.
I did manage to watch a handful of shows, and by the end of the weekend I hope to have watched the rest. Here’s a rundown on what I did see.
It’s nice to see that a baby and a relationship haven’t changed this show very much. This episode had Bones back in the field working a murder while her new baby was at daycare. Finn Abernathy, the extremely southern squintern, was back for this episode as well, but not without some drama. Finn and Michelle, Cam’s daughter, hit it off early in the episode and had a very successful first date. Cam, however, tried to put an end to the relationship before ultimately relenting at the end. Personally, I found that aspect of the story to be irrelevant, especially since both of these people are adults, but it worked out in the end.
After what felt like a year, Bones finally returned with a new episode tonight. And with the new episode came a new cast member – Baby Booth has arrived!
But, it wouldn’t be Bones without a murder being solved first. This week’s victim was discovered when bone fragments and an eyeball popped up in a toilet that was about to be used by an already scared little girl. Her dad had spent a good five minutes convincing her she had nothing to be afraid of and then BOOM, there’s an eyeball. I don’t think that girl will ever fully be comfortable in the bathroom for the rest of her life.
It turned out the victim was a prisoner who was murdered and then thrown in a sewer. The team found more of his bones and learned that he was stabbed with a shiv made out of paper from a cookbook. Booth kept insisting that Bones go home and rest, but she was adamant about solving the murder – which she did.
There were several big news stories this week relating to TV stars and shows; here are a few of the ones that stood out to me.
Hawaii Five-0’s Alex O’Loughin seeks treatment for prescription pills
This is arguably one of the bigger stories of the week – at least for a Hawaii Five-0/Alex O’Loughlin fan like myself. From what I’ve gathered, Alex developed a bit of a dependence on prescription pain pills after he hurt his shoulder recently. The show is going to stop production while he seeks treatment. They haven’t said how many (if any) episodes he’ll miss as a result, but they are ahead of schedule with filming so I’m hoping the answer is zero. Can you imagine Five-0 without the commander? I sure can’t.
