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.)

Sherlock finally made it to Hall H at Comic-Con and the creative team brought a few surprises. Steven Moffatt, Sue Vertue, Mark Gatiss, Amanda Abbington, and Benedict Cumberbatch were on hand to the thrill of fans.

Benedict Cumberbatch and crew definitely know how to work a crowd. Here are the top highlights of the panel that played to a crowd of thousands.

1. Season 4

They are currently two weeks from finishing Sherlock season 4. Cumberbatch said that “a lot comes home to roost this season… it’s ballsy.”

They have 26 pages to film this Tuesday. Cumberbatch states that the monologues are very challenging and take a lot of work.

As for actors’ favorite lines this season:

Gatiss: “Sherlock.”

Abington: Not a line but a beckoning gesture.

Cumberbatch: Can’t say.

Key names for next season (change from doing key words):

  • Moffat: Smith
  • Gatiss: Thatcher
  • Vertue: Sherinford

2. Keeping the show fresh

By not making as many episodes, the creators feel they actually keep the quality. They joked that under normal standards they’ve actually made about half a season of a standard TV show, or 13 episodes.

There are no plans for any other Victorian Era shows. Moffat feels that it would be less interesting if the mind palace returned there.

3. Learning curves and drugs

Gatiss stated that with 90-minute episodes you “really have to put [Sherlock and Watson] through the ringer.” Moffat added that because of this, Watson has to evolve. Watson can’t keep being amazed by Sherlock. As for Sherlock, “he can’t be the weird scary amoral man we met in the first episode… geniuses learn… he has to learn.”

Sherlock’s drug addiction comes back when he is not working. It’s hinted that the addiction will be a bigger issue this season than in the past.

4. The coat and the hair

There is apparently a big debate every year over changing the iconic coat. Sue Vertue wants to change it, and Steven Moffat wants to keep it. Benedict Cumberbatch dove into the debate stating, “I’m quite hung up on the coat…. but sometimes it has to come off.” The audience reaction was predictable.

Cumberbatch joked that he loved playing Sherlock in the Victorian era because of the slicked back hair. In the modern era it takes forever for his hair to get done. On a serious note, he loved the more straight-laced, clipped version of Sherlock.

5. First ‘Sherlock’ season 4 trailer

The teaser trailer featured this phrase over and over: “Something’s coming. It may be Moriarity, maybe not.” Literally every character we know and love looks like they are scared, angry, or worried on an epic scale.

One of the best moments is Mrs. Hudson saying with supreme venom to Mycroft, “Get out of my house you reptile.” Watch below:

6. Improv and family

There is actually, according to Cumberbatch, very little improvisation on set. It’s about how to do what’s there, and not messing with the script. He firmly believes that what is there is what is needed for the show.

Cumberbatch genuinely loves having his mom and dad play his TV mom and dad. Every now and then he can see his mother struggle to call him “Sherlock” and not “Ben.”

7. Mary in the know

Abbington didn’t know she was an assassin until well into the last season. When she found out, she told partner Martin Freeman, “My God, [the fans] are going to hate me.” Despite this, she loves the flawed characters of the series.

8. When will the series return?

No date was given for either the BBC release date or the PBS release date. We only know that it will premiere in 2017.

9. The dog photo

According to Cumberbatch the dog (depicted above) was a nightmare. “The dog wouldn’t fucking move,” he said. The companion was supposed to drag Sherlock all over London, but the dog didn’t like people, concrete, crowds… really anything about an urban setting.

Moffat and Gatiss resorted to writing a new scene on the spot to account for the lack of the dog’s interest in roaming. According to Gatiss all it did was drool on the concrete.

10. Future seasons?

Touching on the future of the series, Moffat stated, “Why is everybody assuming they survive season 4?” Gatiss joked, “We’re skipping season 5 and doing season 6.”

Moffat clarified that — contrary to recent reports — he never said that this season would be the last one (He’s right: All he said was the schedules of Cumberbatch and Freeman are only getting more difficult to work with). Gatiss added that they want to do more seasons, and they hope that they are able to.

Sherlock will be back in 2017. What do you think of the first season 4 trailer?

Marvel presented at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday evening and offered new looks at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and more.

“We only want to come to Hall H when we have a lot to show you,” teased Marvel’s Kevin Feige at the start of the panel. Indeed, they had a ton to offer — including news of a new Marvel theme park attraction!

Everything we’ve learned at Marvel’s SDCC panel

  1. Marvel kicked off their panel with a new logo and updated fanfare by composer Michael Giacchino.

  2. Black Panther had some casting news to share: Lupita N’yongo will be playing one of the guards at Wakanda named Nakia. Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan will be playing Erik Killmonger. We also received brand new casting news: Danai Gurira has joined the movie — She’ll play Okoye, head of Dora Milaje! Finally, a new logo for the film was revealed:

  3. Thor: Ragnarok unveiled a behind-the-scenes look at the new film which included a look at Cate Blanchett as Hela. They also showed a documentary-style clip (think The Office) explaining where Hulk and Thor were during the events of Captain America: Civil War! In it, Thor had a tiny bed for Mjolnir and a crime board that tried to connect the Infinity Stones and discover their purpose. There is also mugshot of Loki. Like Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok had a new logo to show off with a retro looking subtitle:

    thor-ragnorak-new-logo-sdcc-2016

  4. Doctor Strange’s portion of the panel kicked off with a smoke and laser show to introduce Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Tilda Swinton was also at the panel and spoke about the Ancient One. “The truth is, anyone can be The Ancient One,” she said. A clip from Doctor Strange was also showed in which Steven Strange meets Tilda’s character (It won’t be online).

  5. Thankfully, a brand new and wholly epic Doctor Strange trailer was released. Watch below:

    A new poster was also unveiled:

  6. Next up was Spider-Man: Homecoming. Director Jon Watts described the film as a high school movie about a 15-year-old Peter Parker who’s in the 10th grade. A new clip was unveiled and had a strong John Hughes vibe — Peter Parker is just your average high schooler trying to get through the day. There was also this great moment:

  7. Next up: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which kicks off a few months after the first movie. The entire cast was there to introduce a new scene in which a very adorable Baby Groot helps Yondu and Rocket break out of prison. Baby Groot even has a little outfit! Adorably, the Ravengers — who captured Yondu and Rocket — refuse to hurt Baby Groot because of how cute he is.

    This movie got a new logo as well.

  8. Speaking of Marvel’s space dramedy, the studio also confirmed rumors of a Guardians of the Galaxy theme park attraction. It’s called Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and debuts Summer 2017 at Disneyland’s California Adventure theme park. Sadly, it’s replacing the classic Tower of Terror ride. Check out a behind the scenes video of the attraction:

  9. Marvel ended their panel by confirming that Brie Larson will play Captain Marvel, as was previously rumored. She took the stage to say hi to the adoring audience, and participated in a giant Marvel selfie:

All in all, Marvel had a ton to share. What do you think of all the developments?

DC kept the trailer train trotting along today with an all new trailer for Suicide Squad!

Though Suicide Squad is just a few weeks away from hitting theaters, DC kept the momentum going today with an all new trailer featuring music from the soundtrack, new footage, and a better look at what exactly we can expect from the upcoming villain-focused super hero movie. Check it out below.

The new (and likely final) Suicide Squad trailer comes after surprise premiere of the Wonder Woman trailer and an even bigger surprise with our first look at the Justice League trailer. As with the other trailers today, this one debuted publicly alongside its Comic-Con Hall H premiere.

In this trailer, we hear a lot from Will Smith who plays Deadshot and arguably the most decorated and respected actor among the cast. “They’re gonna blame us for the whole thing. We’re the patsies, don’t forget. We’re the bad guys.” The trailer is jam-packed with all of the villains and their powers and skills on full display.

We also get a better look at the leader of the pack, Jared Leto’s The Joker. “I can’t wait to show you my toys,” Leto’s Joker says while slapping around a man.

Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn also gets a lot of screen time in this trailer. Though, most of it features close ups of her back side, which stays close to the adult, rugged tone of the other trailers we have seen thus far.

There’s no doubt that fans will be flocking to theaters rooting on the bad guys when Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th. Suicide Squad features
