The Goop on the Girl - Omg, the UST!

So now Bones is undressing Booth in blatantly sexual poses. How much harder can they push this UST thing? What's next? Bones and Booth undercover as porn actors, doing a scene together? Booth praying under his breath while Bones coldly analyses the mechanics of the cowgirl? Yeesh.


So, questions:


For how many seasons can the show reasonably push this UST thing before the audience starts barfing into envelopes and mailing them to the network?


Would it necessarily kill the show to have the characters act on their UST? (classic example: Moonlighting)


Do you think they ever (EVER??!!!1) will?


How annoying do you find the UST on Bones on a scale of 1-10? (Personally, as of this last episode, I'd say a solid 8.)



[Key for n00bs: UST = unresolved sexual tension]

Annoying? 9. And we weren't supposed to be mailing barf bags to the network yet? I'd say I'm about two seasons over on the thats-how-tired-I-am-of-this-sh*t stuff. Yep, waiting is great. But no, it's not great if the other aspects of the plot are subsumed by all of the awkward will-they-won't-they bull. Just get it over with, and make the angst afterword short! Because we all know, the aftermath of them sleeping together will last us angst-wise until season 10!

I don't think its annoying. I think its amazzzing. Thats what keeps the show going is the ust. I think they have finally gotten to a point where they are ready to get together and its a good time.

I'm a little disappointed with this season. Last season, there was tension but in the context of character development--there seemed to be a genuine warmth and vulnerability developing. I feel like all character development has stopped this season, particularly on the part of Brennan: her obliviousness about Booth's feelings is no longer believable and it makes her seem manipulative. The show has been treading water for a little while; hopefully it will get out of this rut before too long.

agree with isabelita.. its awesome. its entertaining, which is the whole reason behind the show. obviously. If you don't like it, dont bring those of us who do like it down with your snarky comments. in reply to what kpe said about their feelings: brennan has been told he loves her, so she's not oblivious. she's not a manipulative character, and she is obviously afraid to open up to anyone in terms of true love, even booth. it would be great for them to actually kiss. not for someone elses entertainment (season 3, lol), but like in a tender moment. 'A Night At The Bones Museum", at the end when they are alone, talking, and she straightens his tie and he brushes her hair back, would have been a perfect moment. but of course, it was interrupted. which is good, because something like that needs to happen at the end of the season.
I laughed out loud when brennan was removing booths clothes.. the look on his face was priceless! :)
