Bones is, by far, my favorite show on television, but I can't help but get the feeling that the writers have lost some of their original flair for creativity.
Please, those followers of Bones familiar with the previous seasons, reminisce back to Season Two of Bones. The plot lines and twists during that season were just brilliant. And yes, there have been great scenarios this season as well, but there were too many episodes that just seemed..."convenient."
For example, there were 5 episodes this season that just happened to hit way too close to home for certain characters. The recent episodes "Double Death of the Dearly Departed" (a death in the faculty that happens to be a murder) and "The Doctor in the Den" (Cam's former fiance' shows up on their table) are examples of how so many unlikely things happen. Similarly, in Episode 13, "The Fire in the Ice", Booth's hockey opponent gets killed, I mean, come on!
Also, how convenient is it that Angela's former lover is discovered through a murder ("The Skull in the Sculpture" - Episode 3). It is just unlikely. And don't even get me started about Booth's son finding a finger in a nest in "The Finger in the Nest."
I'm not complaining, because after all, it is still my favorite show, but I was just wondering if anyone else agreed.
