Twisted Sister Meg here:
Why do we like certain shows and not others? For me it is the character development. I don’t need to know their life history the first show to be interested in a character. The second is the writing. Nothing stupid or too hokey. For a show to be good, it needs to combine GMC and HEA. There is always a specific goal, motivation to solve the case, and of course, the villain doesn’t want to be discovered. Loose ends and a satisfying conclusion will all be neatly packaged.
One of my favorite drama shows is BONES. I listed a few of the reasons why:
1. David Boreanaz is just hot–IMHO That Seeley Booth was a sniper and has baggage makes him a bit dangerous and safe at the same time. He is honorable, courageous and won’t hesitate to kill.
2. Emily Deschanel’s character, Dr. Temperance Brennan, is a hoot. Some of her naivety and lack of social skills is funny. I wish I could get away with saying what I think. I like her intelligence and being kick-ass.
3. The supporting characters are all well-defined–Angela, Zach, Sweets, and Hodgins. I would love to be friends with all of them.
4. They have cool jobs and a neat place to work. Even though I know that some of the uber ‘technology’ doesn’t always translate into real life, I can suspend some of my disbelief while enjoying the show.
5. Kathy Reichs rocks.
