Jai! Oh, how I miss Queer Eye For The Straight Guy. Though a little more creepy this episode. And appropriately so.
I didn't just guess the killer, which is always fun. I liked Booth's unexpected, though explicable, hair knowledge.
All and all, in against all odds, I actually liked this one. Not a great episode, and agreed that the show needs to get back to more drama as cases with some comedy, not the other way around. But on the other hand and unlike previous episodes, I liked all the characters, so for a light episode, this is how it should be done. Cam was a good friend to Booth, good at her job, and a good boss to Arastoo. Hodgins was a good friend, a good husband to Angela, and good in the lab. Angela was a good friend (I really liked all the Brennan/Angela interactions), still has some good thoughts about using the (modified)Angelator. Sweets didn't give horrible advice to Booth that destroyed his love life, for once. And so on.
And Booth and Brennan were believable as a couple, and those last scenes with the ice cream (theme for the last show with shows, watching Castle afterwards) were kind of adorable and much better at the kissing stuff than before. Guess DB was over his cold by this point.
So yeah, the show still should have buried the back-from-hiatus episode they came back with a few weeks ago. Terrible programming decision and one that may kill them in the ratings again this week. But I have to say, I actually liked episode, I think the show is definitely (and finally) improving. To be clear though, I didn't love it and it's still far below previous seasons work. Relatively, it was a fine job.
