A plane full of Chinese diplomats and the “in-flight entertainment” has crashed somewhere in the back nine of a Maryland golf course, but the Squint Squad can’t be bothered to care. Much to the chagrin of your cohosts, the investigation into a national security crisis is derailed when a floppy-headed, dead-eyed man named Jessie shows up claiming some bones found with the crash might belong to his father. Hijinks ensue as our heroes repeatedly go behind the incomparable Goodman’s back to investigate the clearly less important mystery bones. Meanwhile, Emily, Marshall, and James, amidst audible sighs in this tangent-laden episode discuss Charlie the Dog’s auto-fellator proclivities and the struggle with spicy poops. So crack a few beers and sidle on up to another cuckoo-bananas episode of Bones Zone as we discuss Bones episode 114: “The Man on the Fairway.”
Bullets are flying as Bones and Booth investigate a series of murders connected to a Salvadoran crime ring. Unafraid of raising the level of public discourse, this episode of a Fox crime procedural bravely and boldly tackles issues of wealth inequality, organized crime, and America’s foreign policy in Central America (Hodgins has a thing or two to say about death squads). Somehow despite these heavy topics, your hosts Emily, Marshall, and James manage to find time to crack a few beers, explore incredibly “Safe-Search-off” Google results, and reenact much of Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman. Why is Bones so unafraid of drug lords? What is the senator and his army of house staff hiding? And which one of your co-hosts is a proven sociopath? Listen on to find out as three unremarkable people discuss the remarkable episode Bones 113: “The Woman in the Garden.”
Tonight, a cos-player died in Washington. Somebody knows why. Somebody knows. It’s Emily, Marshall, and James — joining you yet again to get into the nitty-gritty of another sub-culture themed episode of Bones. This time, Bones and Booth dive into the nerdy underworld to solve the murder of a real caped crusader (only kidding, merely a troubled youth from the burbs), and his LARPing mates seem to only want to help by making us cringe. Meanwhile, the Squints back the lab are devoid of any memorable subplot, leaving ample time for your cohosts to rave about the first unanimously perfect Beer of the Ep! Join us, won’t you, to explore the finer distinctions of LARP vs. cos-play, geek vs. nerd, and comic book vs. *graphic novel* on this very special episode of Bones, “The Superhero in the Alley.”
After another totally intentional hiatus, The Bones Zone team (Emily, Marshall, and James) are back, and this time there’s a child in danger! A former defense-engineer-turned-protected-witness goes missing and Bones, Booth, and the Squints must race against the clock to find him and his son. This brutal episode tactfully combines child torture with a campy B-plot involving an NSA agent grilling the team on their checkered pasts. Which of our favorite supporting characters is revealed to be secretly married? Will B+B find the kid before it’s too late? And how many listeners and co-hosts will James and Emily alienate by discussing their family vacation? All this, and more, will be answered right here, right now, on Bones episode 111: “The Woman in the Car”.
