Finales – Round One: Lets Start With Bones and The Good Wife

Yep It’s that time of year again.

This past season I’ve been going spoiler free, and during this time I’m taking extra care to stay away from any kind of spoilers…and when I say spoiler free I mean I’m not reading any real spoilers but I do have a tiny idea of what will be happening in most of the shows I watch…well the ones I really care about. And I have to admit going spoiler free is more fun.

I’m going to be reviewing try and review all my shows final episodes… of course this is if I don’t get too lazy, start a blog post and leave it sitting in my drafts folder till next year (Yes I did that last year and it’s still sitting with a million other drafts).

SPOILER ALERT: If you havn’t watched The Good Wife and Bones Finales then RUN Away NOW!!

Let me start with the two finales that have aired (earlier than usual) so far:

The Good WifeThe Good Wife:

Yes the finale was awesome.

It was an interesting and pretty much predictable episode, nothing special. Who thought for even a second that Peter was going to loose the election? Exactly.

The one thing that did surprise me was the end, that whole time I thought that she was waiting for Will in her apartment and was genuinely surprised when she opened the door and Carey was standing there. It didn’t even cross my mind that he was the one she called. Of course what came next was no surprise since it was Carey at the door….Season 5 is going to be VERY VERY interesting.


Frankly, it sucked. I felt that the previous episode was better finale material than this one. When did Moffat start writing for Bones? Wait. You know if he did write the episode at least it would have been much more intriguing and twisted…and probably more fun.

The episode was ok, nothing more, nothing less. The writing was poor and lazy. Pelant being THAT powerful, totally unbelievable and that “cliffhanger” if it can even be considered one, didn’t have me looking forward to the new season like in the previous years. This was even more disappointing than the coma dream episode a few years back.

It was a very stupid & cruel move to have bones FINALLY propose (which we knew was coming right from the begging) and then have booth reject her by the end of the episode (which once again was pretty obvious from the minute she asked him to marry her that it wasn’t going to end on a happy note)…well forced to reject her propsal, which again is epically dumb and just proves what I’ve been saying from the beginning of the season: the writers are running out of ideas and have no more imagination.

I’m sorry but I really feel that it’s time to put the show out of its misery (and it seems that it may be heading into it’s final season because it’s moving to Fridays this coming fall). I was surprised or better yet shocked that it got an early pick up this year because the whole season was super lame and really boring. There were only 2 good episodes, and I don’t see next season getting any better. Either the writers have NO idea how to write for a couple or they’ve just given up (or both).

I’m certain that if it wasn’t for Emily’s real life pregnancy Booth & Bones would never have gotten together and in my opinion having Christine definitely ruined the show, motherhood does not suit Bones.

So much for the happy ending.

I just hope that my other shows have better finales.
