Sonuvabitch.  I had a whole long spiel typed out for Bones and Veronica Mars, but my browser crashed and wiped out the page I had finished before saving a draft.  And I don't have time to re-do it all.  Frack me.

Basically, Bones was good and gruesome - and Adam Baldwin was a bad guy.  Booth and Brennan are really friends, with increasing closeness.  Hodges and Booth moments make me laugh - "Well, if we weren't in a toy car..."  And nice shout-out to the restaurant "Nolita" - the main set from the cancelled Kitchen Confidential.

Veronica had a relatively weak plot-of-the-week, but that was mainly due to the woefully bad "actress" Kristin Cavalieri (Laguna Beach alumni should be blacklisted from anything in showbiz).  The long-term story is getting juicier, though, with the amped up suspicion of Terrence Cook, and Logan's investigation/manipulation of Dr. Griffith.  Is the fling with his daughter Hannah for real?  Who knows.  But now Veronica is seeing what he's up to, and her reaction/assistance should be interesting.

I honestly had a whole lot more interesting stuff said before, but this will have to do for now...

I thought thats what that was! And then, I was like, 'No, it can't be..." That is neat.

I did like last nights episode although I thought it has a few problems. Very strong from all the regular cast, but I just didn't think that Adam Balwins character was written very well. He didn't rivet me. I honestly was more intrigued by the baddy serial killer with the keys - he should have gotten his own episode. *shrug*

There was just too much going on in the episode IMO, and the more I think about it, the more it kinda bugs me. I understand that it would be believable that cases interloop one another, but at times I had to like try to keep up with which body/case they were covering.

As usual the personal stuff and the cast and the dialogue and stuff made up for any flaws though. I am getting in deeper by the week with these characters.

*Ok, Cindy back to MySQL/PHP/server bullshit HELL!*

I actually had some comments along the same lines, Cin. Adam's character was a little underdeveloped, and yes, the key-obsessed serial psycho was creepy enough to warrant his own real story.

But like I said, all of my long-winded thoughts were wiped, and I was too frustrated to re-hash them again. Which, of course pales in comparison to the tedious crap you are slogging through in setting up our haven, so once again, thanks bunches and bunches for committing to do the necessary groundwork. *smooches*
