Bones‘ fifth episode in season 8 “The Method in the Madness” was a Sweets (John Francis Daley) heavy episode and explored the artisan business. It’s time for the weekly recap of Bones and its amusing episode.

With possibly its best opening in its eight seasons, Bones captivated viewers with two garbage men singing while a body falls out of the truck.

Cut to Sweets casually sleeping in his office when Booth (David Boreanaz) stops by with a case and becomes concerned for his mental health. Booth offers a place to stay for “a night or two.” We’ll see how long this lasts.

As seen in the clip posted by Hypable previously, Booth informs Brennan (Emily Deschanel) about the change, who seems fine with it saying, “it takes a village to raise a child.”

Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) notes the murder timeline, and warns that Sweets is never dating anyone again. Do you want him to get together with FBI Special Agent Olivia Sparling (Danielle Panabaker) or back together with Daisy (Carla Gallo)?

Cam (Tamara Taylor) deduces that the victim was alive when her skin was eviscerated. Meanwhile squintern Colin Fisher (Joel David Moore), Hodgins, and Brennan debate the brutality of the Incas. It looks like Angela (Michaela Conlin) will have to put the face back together piece by piece.

Is there anything more adorable than Sweets staying in Parker Booth’s (Ty Panitz) room? He looks so lost.

As seen in the other clip discussed by Hypable, Hodgins starts a pool to guess on how long Sweets will last as a house-guest. Angela believes Sweets will be adopted, validating the Parker analogy.

The victim Jessica is a co-owner of Them Apples, a store which Brennan and Angela frequent. Her business partner Brooke is a close friend and reveals that Jessica had lupus and made frequent visits to a clinic. She directs them towards an angry butcher Adam who brought Jessica free meat. He says he was threatened by a man to stop talking to Jessica and gets upset at claims that his meat is not agro-friendly.

Jessica had $2,000 in sequential bills on her when she died, after appearing at a farmer’s market. Cam rules out that the victim had lupus.

Viewers get to enjoy a cute Christine (Susanne Allan Hartman) sighting while Brennan tells Sweets to stay with them instead of living at a hotel, basing her argument on his praise of craftsmanship and past job at a record store. Do you agree with her logic?

Sweets has turned into quite the helpful house-guest, even doing Booth and Brennan’s laundry. Fans can rest easy knowing Booth wears Captain America underwear.

According to Dr. Reese, Jessica got tested each month for STDs, leading Sweets to determine she was a prostitute on the side.

Mr. Fisher rules out the butcher as the killer is right-handed and draws a parallel between the murder and Jack the Ripper (the victim was a prostitute and her throat was split). He works late into the night under the watch of a lantern, being a bit creepy and reminding us of fan-favorite Zack (Eric Millegan).

Sweets oversteps his boundaries by bathing in Booth and Brennan’s bathroom and appears only in a towel. Is this on Tumblr yet? Meanwhile Mr. Fisher stops by to show the victim was restrained, while Brennan leisurely enjoys her wine. Looks to be a fun night in the Booth-Brennan household. Do you want to live there now?

Dr. Reese has an arrest record for solicitation, moving him to the top of the suspect list. They arrive at his home, only to find him in a top hat with a knife while a woman in lingerie is restrained and frightened. Reese denies his guilt but instead admits to hiring women, including Jessica, to roleplay his fantasies.

Reese points to a larger man who scared him and locked him in his closet. He echoes the same claim that Adam the butcher made.

Sweets apologizes for his behavior the previous night and is looking for his own apartment. Using his psychology skills, he theorizes that the large man is a former client of Jessica who has become obsessed with her. Angela identifies the man using a traffic cam.

Willis turns himself in and is Jessica’s sort-of uncle who was watching out for her. He acted on her behalf with the butcher and charged into the doctor’s home when he heard Jessica’s scream. He offered her a deal for her to move to Baltimore if she stopped prostituting herself.

The victim was cut 18 times and remained in one position; thus leading the Jeffersonian team to theorize that her death was caused by a machine. Booth and Brennan issue a warrant to co-owner Brooke and discover the murder weapon. Jessica revealed that she wanted to sell and take Willis’ deal and in anger, Brooke slapped her and Jessica fell in.

Booth invites Sweets to stay as long as he doesn’t take his scotch. Sweets suspects that Booth just wants to win the bet while Brennan thinks he has to dance and celebrate. Brennan and Sweets engage in celebratory dancing capping off an amusing episode.

 

Favorite Lines:

“I don’t have a box for infinity. The furthest I have is a month.” (Hodgins referring to the bet.)

“An occasional prostitute, interesting.” (Mr. Fisher referring to the victim.)

In 10 years, will we look back at the 2017 Oscars and remember every detail of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling awkwardly accepting award after award for La La Land while the other nominees politely clap and try not to grit their teeth? Or will the event fade into distant memory?

Maybe we can get an answer to that question by dialling back the clock to 2007 and see just how clearly we remember the 79th Academy Awards.

How did you do? Tell us how well you remember the 79th Academy Awards in the comments!

The nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be unveiled Tuesday, January 24.

You may know that one of those dogs-are-so-great-and-warm-our-hearts movies, A Dog’s Purpose, is hitting theaters very soon. Unfortunately, it’s now embroiled in controversy.

TMZ has released a video from the film’s Canadian set depicting a German Shepherd being forced into a fast-moving stream of water. As you can tell, the dog clearly does not want to go in it.

The most upsetting part of the video comes at the very end when we see the dog finally in the fake river but having trouble staying above water. The crew calls cut to rescue him/her.

You may know that one of those dogs-are-so-great-and-warm-our-hearts movies, A Dog’s Purpose, is hitting theaters very soon. Unfortunately, it’s now embroiled in controversy.

TMZ has released a video from the film’s Canadian set depicting a German Shepherd being forced into a fast-moving stream of water. As you can tell, the dog clearly does not want to go in it.

The most upsetting part of the video comes at the very end when we see the dog finally in the fake river but having trouble staying above water. The crew calls cut to rescue him/her.

“Sources connected to production tell us eight outboard motors were used to churn the water and recreate a rushing river,” says TMZ. “The dog eventually got in the water — or was forced in — but was quickly submerged.”

At 1:28 in the below trailer you can see a scene that looks similar to what was being filmed in TMZ’s video:

Universal and their partners at Amblin told TMZ in a statement, “Fostering a safe environment and ensuring the ethical treatment of our animal actors was of the utmost importance to those involved in making this film and we will look into the circumstances surrounding this video.”

A Dog’s Purpose stars Dennis Quaid and Britt Robertson. It opens next Friday, January 27.

Update: Josh Gad, who voices a dog in the movie, issued the following statement on Instagram. He speaks highly of the film but says he finds the leaked video “disturbing.”

“While I do not know all of the details and cannot speak to the level of care and caution that went into this moment (as I was never on set for the marking of this film), I am shaken and sad to see any animal put in a situation against its will.”

Since apparently some of you did not see the statement I issued last night, here it is again.

Moviegoers may be getting the Spidey we’ve all been hoping for! A new report reveals that Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie, set to hit theaters in 2018, will focus on the Miles Morales Spidey.

Update (January 18, 2017): Sony Animation confirmed on Wednesday, January 18 that their animated Spider-Man movie will star Miles Morales!

Original story (May 2016): Heroic Hollywood, who has a good record of breaking superhero news, is the source behind the exciting development. As was previously announced, the animated Spider-Man movie will be produced by LEGO Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The duo are also set to direct the Star Wars Han Solo spinoff for Lucasfilm.

Who is Miles Morales? As we wrote in a lengthy tell-all about the character last year:

Miles Morales is the current Spider-Man in Marvel’s Ultimate Comics series. Introduced in 2011, Miles is a black-hispanic young man who, like Peter Parker, is a talented scientist and self-proclaimed nerd. However, unlike his predecessor, Morales steps into the superhero’s shoes at the surprisingly young age of 13.

Raised in Brooklyn, Miles was born into a family plagued by criminal activity. Before settling down with his wife Rio, Miles’s father Jefferson used to be crime partners with his brother Aaron (Miles’s uncle). However, where Jefferson tried to shrink away from the lifestyle, Aaron continues to embrace it — assuming the role of classic Marvel villain the Prowler. After pulling off a heist on Oscorp, Aaron unknowingly takes a genetically modified spider home with him. It is at Aaron’s house that Miles is bit by the spider and starts the transformation into Spider-Man.

Where Peter Parker relished the opportunity to become spidey, Miles is reluctant to enter the world of vigilantism. What’s more, his family’s criminal history causes him to question whether or not he can ever be a hero, or if evil is hardwired into him.

Oh, and one other cool thing about him: The guy is immortal, unlike the Peter Parker version of Spider-Man.

The rumor mill was alive with chatter about the MCU’s Spidey being the Miles Morales version last year, but obviously those reports never panned out. The Peter Parker version of Spider-Man was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, played by Tom Holland. He’s getting his own spinoff film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, next year.

Telling the Miles Morales story on screen may be just the thing the animated Spider-Man movie needs in order for it to draw people into the theaters in December 2018. We’ve had enough Peter Parker stories!

2018 will be a great year for super hero diversity: Marvel’s Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman will be released a few months earlier.
