Bones: The Man in the Mud

You can watch the episode before you read any further as I will post my recap and there will be spoilers.

The episode started with a horny couple on their way to a hot mud pit in the middle of a national forest. The couple strips down and gets into the mud only to find the skeleton of a famous motorcycle racer. Ugh and ouch. Apparently it was the girl who was being poked by the skeleton. I don’t think enough showers would be possible to get that feeling of dead body off off me. Sometimes this show is really, really gross.

We quickly get into other things like the humorous sessions that Booth and Bones have to have with ‘Sweets’. I am really enjoying this character and I think it was great when he suggested that they go on a ‘double date’. The double date, observation session didn’t go that well; however, for ‘Sweets’. His cute girlfriend didn’t like how he was treating her and she decided to break up with him. Poor ‘Sweets’. During the ‘double date’ Sweet, his girlfriend, Booth and Bones went to a pottery place. Booth was dead set against doing this and ‘Sweets’ figured that it was because it was something that Booth was not good at.

I started laughing when I saw Booth in his artistic clothes. Were those his own or from the pottery place? I figure that they were his because everyone else was dressed in normal clothes. The bandanna and smock gave it away that Booth was probably good at this too. And I was right, he made a great horse sculpture that impressed the group. Then he started a playful clay fight that again backfired on ‘Sweets’.

I was reading an article on TV Squad about a phone interview with David Boreanaz. In it he said that there may be some episodes in England soon and that the season finale (2 part cliffhanger) was already written prior to the writer’s strike.

Okay, how about that dead guy. The team worked on the body and there was very little face time for the squints, this was a big Bones and Booth episode with much face time with ‘Sweets’.

To tell you the truth I was more interested in Booth and Bones to pay much attention to this week’s Death Du Jour. One thing that did stand out was that MC. Gainey (LOST’s Mr. Friendly) guest starred as a no nonsense lawyer. I wonder if he will do other episodes. Oh and in the end they did find out who murdered the motorcycle racer. Sorry, but I am finding the relationship between Booth and Bones much more interesting.

  1. OMG! Thanks for this. I am a fan of Bones… I was searching for a quote from Agent Booth from the episode about horse thingy and role-playing a guy killed by his groom.

    It was the part where Bones and Agent Booth was discussing about what’s the difference between crappy sex and making love. I love that part so much. Do you by any chance have that?

    And yeah I definitely agree somethings cooking between Bones and Booth… I am actually looking forward to it 🙂

  2. I know what you are saying about that episode. I can’t remember the exact quote about it though.

    Have you read any of the books by Kathy Reichs? They are very good but different than the TV show even though it is about the same character.

    I think this is the quote you may be talking about.

    Booth: Just so they could have crappy sex
    Brennan: How do you know it’s crappy?
    Booth: It’s gotta be Bones
    Brennan: Why?
    Booth: Why? I’ll tell you why. Here we are, all of us basically alone, separate creatures, just circling each other, all searching for the slightest hint of a real connection. Some look in the wrong places, some they give up hope because in their mind they’re thinking oh there’s just nobody out there for me. But all of us keep on trying over and over again. Why? Because every once in a while, every once in a while, two people met and there’s that spark. And, yes Bones he’s handsome and she’s beautiful and maybe that’s all they see at first. But making love? Making love … that’s when two people become one.
    Brennan: It’s scientifically impossible for two objects to occupy the same space
    Booth: Yeah, but what’s important is we try. And when we do it right … we get close.
    Brennan: To what? Breaking the law of physics
    Booth: Yeah, Bones. A miracle.
    Booth: Those people, role playing fetishes, and their sex games. It’s crappy sex. Compared to the real thing.
    Brennan: You’re right.
    Booth: Yeah but – wait a second, I just won that argument?
    Brennan: Yeah.

  3. I haven’t watched any movie or tv show for a while. But know I saw some parts of this movie and I think I will take a look.
