What can you say? "Bones is just Bones"! To know her is to love her.

Bones treatment of him in the beginning is not religious bigotry. She views ALL religions as illogical. If he had been a Catholic needing to go to mass at dusk or a Jew who refused to work on Saturday or [insert religious observance here], she'd have been no different.
The Parker storyline was hilarious. I especially like that the paints were still on his face during dinner with Bones.
I like the argument Sweets and Bones were having about psych v. anthro. And Bones refusal to acknowledge the soft sciences as true science.
Technically, there were 4 people responsible for the death. He wouldn't have died if not for his wife using the saltpeter.

Yes, the story around Parker reminds me of the old joke about the boy who asks where he came from. After Dad gives him The Talk, the boy says, "Oh. I thought I was from Cleveland."

And it was great of Bones to give them pass keys to the pool in her building.

Another great show! It was reaffirmed through Parker's concern about his Dad not having a girl friend that what children are talking about is not necessarily what we think it is! I think Bones got to the root of this in a mighty fine way!

Yes, I thought this was another good show.

I too was not happy with the way they first dealt with the Muslim assistant's religion. Maybe they got a number of complaints and decided to do a better job.

Excellent satire on the foibles of suburbia.

I loved how they handled the story line around the Muslim lab assistant. Last year I was really turned off by Bones' treatment of him and his religion. I thought it came dangerously close to religious bigotry. Beautiful this time!
