‘Bones’ season 8, episode 4 review: Let’s talk animals

When you have a show that has been around for eight seasons, there is almost a sentiment that you really could just sit back, relax, and allow most of the fanbase to do the work for you. You already know that you are going to have a good many viewers, and it is easy to air something that is more or less just a slight modification on something that we have seen before.

At times, there were elements of Monday night’s “Bones” that we had seen before, whether it be Booth and Brennan arguing over something related to Christine (whether or not she should be allowed to visit a zoo), but also something that we are sure is going to spark a pretty great debate: just how much in the way of animal rights do you want to see in an episode.

Personally, we really enjoyed that the show was able to take some sort of a stand on an issue that has created plenty of conversation in small circles, but rarely on the grand scale: the trafficking of endangered species. Who wants to keep a tiger as a pet? Apparently, some people do. We like when “Bones” makes us think a little bit, but we also love that it made us laugh. especially when it came to a certain scene involving a “bug rupture.” There was also a welcome change in the relationship when it came to Daisy and Sweets, and this was itself a pretty fun element of the show worth watching.

What did you think about this episode, and did you like some of the subject matter that was addressed by the writing staff?
