While everyone always has their own individual preference as to their favorite sort of mystery show episodes, we tend to love the ones that feature riffs on what are other popular programs or pop-culture trends. Take for example the pretty hilarious take “The Bachelorette” that “Psych” did back in season 6, or the fantastic skewing of “The Real Housewives of New York City” that “Castle” tried on for size last month.
On Monday night’s new episode of “Bones” season 8, we are going to see a completely different sort of show ultimately taken for a spin: the daytime court drama. These are typically over-the-top programs with whiny plaintiffs, unprepared defendants, and of course some sort of strongly-opinionated judge who is really the only person in attendance that actually realizes week in and week out that this is a television show meant to entertain people.
When it actually comes to revealing details about this episode (entitled “The Maiden in the Mushrooms,” the promo below really does not do very much (even if it does get your heart pumping); luckily, we also have the official synopsis to share now courtesy of Fox, which should fill in some more of the cracks for you:
“The Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of a TV producer. Meanwhile, Brennan has trouble accepting the fact that Christine might be an ‘average’ child, when her daughter gets accused of biting another classmate. Then, Hodgins uses all of his tools at the Jeffersonian to chemically recreate Finn’s (guest star Luke Kleintank) special hot sauce.”
