Day 26 – OMG WTF? Season finale:

I think two consecutive finales from the same show fit this bill....

"The Pain in the Heart" and "The End in the Beginning" (Bones)




Oh this show....*sigh* I don't think it gets more "OMG WTF?" season finale than 3x16 "The Pain in the Heart" or 4x26 "The End in the Beginning." The one was a crazy dream, the other felt like a crazy dream (and made more sense as one for a number of reasons), buts actually supposed to be reality...(which made it worse, IMO). I actually liked "The End in the Beginning" well enough, because it was a fun little AU for me, and was supposed to be a dream anyway, leaving me free to enjoy it rather than stress about how dreamlike and absurd it was--but it still counts as WTF-like for sure.

"The Pain in the Heart" on the other hand....where do I begin? With Booth's ridiculous death-fakeout (running around less than TWO WEEKS after getting almost mortally shot--surrrre!), or the bath scene where we see that OOC beer hat and him with a record player in the BATHROOM (moisture much?), or them describing in detail the ongoing gravedigger case on TV (never going to happen!), or the little permanent "King of the Lab" award we never see given out, or, you know, ZACK BEING THE APPRENTICE WHEN IT MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER?!?!? >:(

I mean, this man looks up to Booth and Brennan with almost hero-worship, we're supposed to believe that if approached by the man they've been investigating/trying to catch all this time, he wouldn't go to B2 immediately?! Yeah right! And we're supposed to believe that a man who can't even drive a car is able to skillfully maneuver a motorcycle in a high-speed chase scene, almost blowing up his friends? Again, I DON'T THINK SO! *rolleyes* It all makes more sense as Zack's dream (including Brennan being more focused on Zack than Booth), than as reality, and when that's the case you know the writers really screwed up. This was definitely the point when the show jumped the shark somewhat (or as one hilarious quote at the time put it, "went out and stole 6 sharks from a tank and just drove over them"), and the fact that Hart Hanson just smiled and said "all reaction is good" was just...gah! *facepalms forever*

And hell, the "WTF" factor still hasn't gone away from Bones, the most recent season 5 finale also had some of this element, with the randomness of Booth going off to war and Brennan to that island, Hodgins and Angela randomly going off to Paris (as if they're all going to have the same jobs waiting for them a year later!), and the thing with Angela's dad and the car!  *sigh*

Perfect icon is perfect, though for this question, lol...

New fitting tag shamelessly stolen from Treehaus...

Jennifer: Bones - Booth um what?hmsharmony on September 7th, 2010 11:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah, S3's finale was VERY WTF. Granted, I prefer what they did over their original intention (killing Zack), but their "creative decision" made ZERO sense in context of the show. My only issue with the S4 finale was that it should've been a filler episode, but otherwise it was enjoyable (though WTF at Booth's "amnesia"). I actually enjoyed the S5 finale, but we already knew that our opinions differ in this respect. =P

(I feel this icon is appropriate as well! =D)

Lol, nice icon! :D And honestly, I think I would have preferred it if Zack had died, rather than see his character mangled and ruined to the point that it rather ruined watching his character in retrospective as well (at least at first when I rewatched epps it was hard for me to watch Zack/enjoy him the same way I used to). And he's not really coming back anyway, he's only appeared once in real time, he might as well be dead, and then not have the shame either...:( In any case I will never be able to believe how stupid Robert Bianco (the USA Today TV critic, with whom I often disagree anyway) could say that 3x16 did no enduring harm to the show...

Yeah, filler epp would probably have been better for 4x26, although IDK, Bones is not a show where I expect as much from the finales, since it doesn't usually have much of a continuing storyline (and when it did with Gormagon look at what a disaster that was!). So I really didn't mind it much, overall....

I've never seen Bones!
I do plan to. But yuppp...this most doesn't really make sense to me!

I see you love Morgana. Awesome XD
sherrilina: Morgana (Merlin)sherrilina on September 9th, 2010 02:43 am (UTC)
Yay for Morgana love! :D I have to say though, it kind of cancels out my "Merlin" love depending on how she's treated from episode to episode...

And yeah, well I'd definitely say the first two seasons of Bones are worth watching at least...
