Bones Is My Favorite TV Show

I watch all kinds of TV shows, but I need to say that Bones ranks high in my personal top. Why do I like this show so much? First, because it strays from the usual, run of the mill, TV shows dealing with crime solving and law enforcement that we see today. Bones is my favorite character, as you can easily imagine, if for no other reason than the simple fact that she has not only great wits but also some superpower in her ability to identify clues by looking at the bones of the victims.



In case you have yet to see one episode of Bones, I will brief you on it, so you know what you are getting yourself into. Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel, is a forensic anthropologist who gets involved in solving crimes, by teaming up with Seeley Booth (played by David Boreanaz, a guy you may know from playing in Buffy the Vampire Slayer), an FBI special agent. The two are very different, and they do not always agree, which, as you may easily expect, leads to some sparks and even fireworks.


A lot of people say that the doctor and the FBI agent have great chemistry on screen, so some romantic sparks are bound to fly around. However, I feel like they are great as friends. The touch of dark humor the show is by now famous for just completes the picture, and I like seeing two professionals getting along, despite their differences, and despite being a man and a woman.


Now getting back to the one who practically lends her nickname to the show, Dr. Bones, I cannot stress how much I like her character. She is the one who practically grows from one episode to another, and she is the one who gets uncovered by the viewers. At first, she seems harsh and even cynical, only to become more sympathetic and ‘human-like,’ throughout the show.


I am not a particular fan of dramas, especially if they are only created for exploitation value. The central theme of the show is very dark, but I find it well balanced by the two main characters who, with their interactions and witty comments, make it much more bearable and even enjoyable to watch.



When someone says TV drama, they may not mean Bones, but that because this show brings something new to the table, and that is well-crafted humor. This is the exact thing I like about it, and I find that each episode manages to enhance itself with something new. I hope there will be many more seasons of this show and that I will get to enjoy the two investigators’ superior intellect and wits for years to come.




Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg’s Friendship Is Amazing


When you say Martha Stewart, your thoughts instantly take you to a sunlit kitchen from which all kinds of delicious smells drift off. When you say Snoop Dogg, you imagine rap videos, Cadillacs, and the sickest beats. So, when someone says Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg in the same statement, what could anyone be thinking about?


I have no idea! But I know that these two  despite being so different have one of the best friendships ever. And it is not even something that has just happened. If you do not know, they have a show together on VH1, called Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, where they have a lot of fun, while cooking and cavorting with guests and friends.

However, it is not this show, or some marketing gimmick to promote the show that brought these two together. They know each other for a long time, and this show is not the first time when they cook together. In November 2008, Snoop Dogg was invited over to Martha’s show, and the two compared their ways of making mashed potatoes. It was clearly a refreshing experience for both of them, as the Queen of Cuisine had the occasion to learn a bit from the rap singer. I am not talking only about making starchy meals (as Snoop might have learned more from her in this area), but how Martha discovered what strange expressions like ‘fo’ shizzle’ mean.


What I see when I look at these two are two people having fun. It doesn’t matter that they are as different from one another as possible; what does matter is that, when they come together, they make great television. And they both have a solid sense of humor, which makes them worthy of every word of praise from me and anyone who watches them. In 2009, Martha and Snoop made brownies during a Christmas special. The one request Snoop had for the brownies to be more in touch with the festivities, was that the brownies had to be green. Martha was up to the challenge.


During the years, the friendship between the famous chef and the equally famous rap artist has only grown bigger, and even after many years, they still seemed to remember about their brownie cooking days. As far as their love for all things funny goes, they had a special occasion to show off their friendship. At Justin Bieber’s Roast on Comedy Central in 2015, the two sat together, enjoying a few jabs at the Biebs’s expense.


Now, they have a show together. And everyone who says Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg could never have been friends, they should just watch an episode. I bet they will change their opinion.
