Hello and welcome to my new blog! This blog will be mainly concerned with the goings-on of various TV shows and closely examining just what the writers are doing down there.
To get started I thought I would elaborate on the name of the blog-putacaskettinyourbnb. Catchy, eh? Well this is the story of where it comes from:
Two of the shows that this blog will be focusing on is ABC’s Castle and FOX’s Bones. Two great shows in my opinion. Two shows with a lot in common, which I will get to later. The most important commonality that these two shows share however, is that the two central characters from either show are a guy and gal with a lot of sexual tension and romantic potential. Now Bones is currently in it’s sixth season while Castle is in it’s third. And while I can certainly understand how that may make a difference in where the writing is currently going my general thought is that the writers for Castle are keeping things a lot more interesting than the writer’s for Bones.
Not to say that Castle is better. Or the other way around. I think the biggest obstacle the writer’s of Bones are facing right now is not repeating story lines that help them keep Brennan and Booth apart. We’re on our what? Our third love triangle? And that’s just counting love interests that posed a genuine threat to the would-be couple. There is a whole list of potential lovers that made us shippers squirm. At this point it is becoming frustrating to watch the unrealistic and really all too convenient road blocks separating our tough but lovable FBI guy and our smart yet clueless forensic anthropologist.
Castle on the other hand is a delicious combination of “Oh they almost…” moments along side the “Now why did that have to happen?!” obstacles. It’s that journey the characters take that make watching the show so fun. It’s what makes fans route for that outcome they want to see but deep down know the fun would be gone if it came too soon. Now as I said Castle is only in it’s third season. The “will they won’t they” game between Castle and Beckett is still fresh and fun. It could be that if the writer’s haven’t put those two crazy kids together by season six the fans will be just as frustrated with Andrew Marlowe as they are right now with Hart Hanson. But the fact remains that right now watching Castle is just a lot more fun than watching Bones.
Hence back to my title. Caskett is an affectionate term to Castle fans have created to describe the would be relationship of mystery novelist Richard Castle and by the book detective Kate Beckett. The “bnb’ in my title of course referring to Booth and Brennan from Bones. So putacaskettinyourbnb is basically my way of saying (and hoping) that the fun the writer’s have found in the Castle/Beckett relationship will come back to the Brennan/Booth storyline. Here’s hoping!
So that’s what this blog is about. I will be posting after each new episode of either show as well as posting on various aspects to the writing of the shows. This blog won’t just be limited to Bones and Castle however. I will also be discussing FOX’s House and Glee as well as CBS’s How I Met Your Mother. Five of the better shows on television in my opinion.
Until next time!
