Review - Bones Season 5 Episode 19 The Rocker in the Rinse Cycle

There have been some pretty good episodes since the show came back, but "The Rocker in the Rinse Cycle" definitely wasn't one of them. The episode seemed more like an opportunity to show Booth and Brennan as rockers than anything else. The case was shoved to the side and was incredibly boring, and despite the many fun scenes with the quirky people at the camp, this episode really was style over substance. The episode was one devoted to the characters with Cam going on a date and everyone learning about Arastoo's love of baseball and was way too heavy on that angle, leaving the story out to dry.

I'm so over the will-they won't-they thing I don't even want to mention it, especially since the amount of time devoted to the nonsense has been ratcheted up. This week, Brennan constantly references Catherine in conversation how Catherine has made a social contract with Booth. We get it. The anthropological speak is a veiled attempt to deflect from real issues. They'll get together eventually whether it be in the season finale or Season 6. I've been reading mostly unsubstantiated rumors and nothing has me remotely interested. If anything, the relationship between Booth and Brennan has become a detriment to the show and the other characters are now the strong points.

Score: 8.3/10
