Bones 200: 10.10: Just Like Bogey and Bacall

A delightful Bones 200 tonight - the 200th episode, 10th episode of the 10th season - which serves up Booth and Bones and all kinds of familiar characters in an alternate 1950s universe in a movie on the big screen.

It's in technicolor, replete with 1950s cinematic grand-sweep music, somewhere in the vicinity of Hitchcock and Bogey and Bacall in vintage delicious delivery and style.   Booth is a jewel thief - ala Cary Grant - and Bones is a police detective, working in a unit under her father, the Chief, played of course by Ryan O'Neal.  Angela's in the department, too - as a secretary - but she manages to fall for Hodgins, a brilliant scientist, anyway, just as he falls for her.

The interns abound in various places and even Pilant puts in an appearance, but presumably not as a psycho serial killer.   There's a great scene on a plane, in which the villain - Cam - finally gets her just desert, due to her greed as well as Booth's expert exertions.  I was glad to see this - Cam as villain - since Cam in our reality of Bones has been such an officious character in the past year or two.  Nah, only kidding - I like our Cam - but it was fun to see her in this role, and render her lines with barely a straight face.

It's fun to think about how far Bones has come since its 100th episode - you can see my review in the links below, for Season 5 - ok, here's the link right here for that review - which was also Hitchcockian, but in a different way, playing on unreliable flashbacks.  That episode also showed Bones and Booth in a much earlier relationship, and started and ended with kisses, which took a few good years to blossom into their full-fledged relationship today.   Bones 200 is also sealed with a kiss - the first for them in this story - which was refreshing because it, too, showed our two main characters first falling in love with each other.

The 1950s were a good time for the movies.  Bones and Booth and everyone fit in just perfectly, which just goes to show, again, that Bones is a series for the ages.
