» » Bones - Die Knochenjägerin The Murder of the Meninist (2005–2017)

Short summary

The team investigates a body found in a car crash, the remains of which belong to a founder of a men's rights organization who may have been the victim of domestic abuse. As Brennan learns more about the tenets of the victim's organization, which claims middle-aged white men are oppressed and feminists are man-haters, Brennan uncharacteristically loses her cool during an interrogation and assaults the organization's co-founder. Meanwhile, Angela and the team struggle to deal with Hodgins post-wheelchair bitterness and Booth is convinced Brennan is a jinx for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Aubrey talks about how he is a Cubs fan and believes in jinxes, and how the Cubs did not win a World Series since 1945. Little does he know, the Cubs would go on to win the World Series the year this show aired (April 2016).

    I have been a fan of Bones since the beginning but have been disappointed by a number of episodes recently. This one was by far below the standard we have become accustomed too. The storyline was not as good and Bones was more abrasive than usual. And what are they doing to Angela and Hodgins , who have always been the best combination in the show in my opinion.

    It seems that other s must feel the same as this episode has the lowest IMDb rating of all the episodes.

    If they break Angela and Hodgins I don't think I will want to watch any more.

    I think this is the worst episode I've ever seen of the series. Whoever wrote this should never get work again besides at Burger King. It's a mix of thinly veiled and unintelligent political statements and the authors personal straw men.

    The plot is weak, some main characters are so unlikable it's almost criminal. Episode is almost completely void of logic, and Brennan seems to have had some sort of lobotomy performed on her.

    The only reason it's not getting a 1 is because the music is as always good, and the director is doing his best with the useless script he's been given.
