    Didn’t Castle already do an episode of this where Castle and Beckett were handcuffed together?

      And what it has to do with what is said above ??

    • Elizabeth says:

      Pretty sure Bones and Castle are two different shows. Last time I checked.

        And I’m sure that the episode will be entertaining. Bones and Castle are two of my favorite shows. I was referring to his comment about “bringing to light the horrifying reality” about pet tigers in Texas. As if no show has ever touched on this before, when I’ve just seen something about this.

        I’m sure I’ll love the episode, especially since I’m really looking forward to new episodes of Bones after the wait, and last season’s ending. I just dislike some of the comments I hear from Bones execs, and this one came across to me as a little to high-handed, as if they were offering up some ground-breaking truths.

        I’m probably just reading too much into it. Sorry if I came across as too snarky.

      It works both ways…Castle is doing an episode this where Castle is suspected of murder, possibly framed just after Bones did the same thing. The basics may be the same but that’s really it. Marlowe has his stories to tell, Hanson has his stories to tell

      • taran63 says:

        That’s true, shows do copy ideas from each other, and I have no problem with that. That wasn’t my issue.

        Though to be fair, Castle (the show) has had Castle (the character) as a suspect before, since Beckett arrested Castle as a murder suspect before in one of the season premieres.

    yes they did and it was a great episode as I’m sure this will be too for BONES.

    I will always think of him as Luke’s gay dad from The OC.

  4. Makes the war against dog breeds seem ridiculous doesn’t it? I mean, it’s illegal to own a pitbull but not a tiger. Stupid.
