'buried Secrets' by NorthStarRoadThe episode opens with the entire gang ready for battle. Gearing up with cleaning supplies, they decided to clean up the farmhouse. Raph is doing some dusting at the fireplace. Donnie is mopping the floor upstairs. Mikey is cleaning the chandelier. Leo is washing the windows, and April is cleaning the wall in the bathroom. Just then Mikey, who just fell the stairs, accidentally discovers a hidden trap door in that led to the basement. April didn’t know that this house has a basement. Raph opens the door, and the gang descend down through a trap door and explore the dark depths of the cellar and come upon a startling surprise, a Kraang Scout Ship buried right under their house.
Saison 3 épisode 3 - Buried secrets
Donnie takes a closer look at the vessel and observes it may have been buried here for hundreds of years. April wonder whats a Kraang ship doing under her house. Seeking answers for the ship’s presence, the gang open the ship and step in to learn more. Inside the ship, they found what seems to be a containment unit with a human-like form cased inside. Despite Donnie’s warnings on not to touch anything, Mikey accidentally elbows a switch on that opens up the containment unit and releases whatever lies inside. As the box opens and the smoke clears, April gasps in shock, for inside the containment was her long lost mother Awakens to the living world. Mrs.O’Neil screams at the sight of the turtles and started to run away, but Casey told her to clam down, for they are friendly mutants. Mrs. O’Neil wonders who they are until she sees April. Before the Turtles and Casey know it, both women pass out in their arms, the shock being too much for them to stand. In the living room, everyone calms down while tea is being served, and despite still being freaked out by the turtles Mrs. O’Neil takes a deep breath and begins to explain her story. She explains that the Kraang ship has actually been buried underground for years, even after the farmhouse has been built. Until one day, April’s great grandfather accidentally discovered a sleeping group of Kraangs and woke them up. The Kraang repaid the great grandad for their reawakening by experimenting on his entire bloodline, forming just the right combination of DNA they would eventually need to conquer the world. When April was born, both her and mother and father plotted to escape, but April’s Mom never made it that far. Kirby managed to get April away to the city, while she was recaptured and put into a long sleep. When April’s Mom finishes her tell she hugs April tight, proclaiming that they can finally be a family again, minus her husband since she is told he’s going on safari in Puerto Rico. Everyone seems pleased with the happy reunion between mother and child, but Mikey’s ‘turtle vibes’ start going off the charts. He doesn’t trust Mom, and later that night, when her and April are relaxing on the porch swing, he swings in to attack.

April is horrified by the unexpected assualt, and pins Mikey as her mother runs away crying in fear. Mikey tries to explain the reasons for his sudden attack, but April doesn’t want to hear it and immediately goes rushing after her mother. Mikey follows her in order to make ammends, but is stopped at the farm door by Raph who immediately takes him away for scolding in front of the others. Under the heat of an intense light, Mikey is yelled at by his family and Casey for attacking an innocent. Mikey explains that he doesn’t trust her, but when his brothers bring up the other outrageous stories he’s told in the past (like the time he said tiny elves stole his Nun-Chucks and replaced them with mozzarella sticks, and the other time that him and Ice Cream Kitty enter a break dancing contest) it’s clear that the only way Mikey will make everyone believe is to solve the mystery for himself. Later, April finds her Mom outside, trying to drown out the shock of Michaelanglo’s assualt by reflecting on the pleasant memories of the past. Gripping her daughter’s hands, Mrs. O’Neil says that both she and April should just leave this place, start over, and leave those ‘freaks’ behind. April is reluctant because the Turtles are like a second family to her, and she wouldn’t want to live her life without them. But April’s Mom leaves her no choice, it’s either her real family or the turtle family, and she leaves her daughter to choose.File:Possessed Leo (2).PNG

Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Mikey is upset that no one believes him, and plays around with Ice Cream Kitty, giving him a little whip-cream hat when suddenly the feline mutant begins to growl and his, pointing Mikey’s attention to a window. Stepping up to get a good look, Mikey sees April’s Mom sneaking off into the woods and acting suspicious. With encouragement from Ice Cream Kitty, Mikey gets out of the house and silently follows her. While walking, Mom’s head turns revealing a grotesque-looking face that makes Mikey squeal in fright. Stopping by a pond, Mom unscrews the lid on some mutagen she likely stole and pours it into the water until Mikey snags it with his chain and accuses her of being a fake. Mom comments that what Mikey suspected all along was true, she is a servant to the Kraang and will capture April so that she can please her masters. But now since Mikey knows to much, she cannot let him escape so he can reveal the truth.

Mikey screams as he is attacked, and the scene switches to back inside the Kraang Scout Ship where Donnie is busy researching through the cyrogenic files to learn exactly what happened to Mrs. O’Neil when she was captured by the Kraang. During the middle of his research, Mikey comes in and surprises Don, and then April shows up asking Donnie if she had seen her mother hanging around. Donnie denies seeing her, and Mikey assures April that Mom is probably alright, and he will help her look later if she wants. April immediately shoots down Mikey’s offer for asisstance, still angry at the orange-masked turtle for what he did before. When April’s gone, Donnie finally goes back to work, and discovers a shocking secret about the true nature of Mrs. O’Neil. However, before he can go and inform his brothers of this important discovery. Mrs. O’Neil suddenly shows up, breaks the laptop Donnie was on, and attacks Donatello with her Kraang-like arms.

Minutes later, Leo arrives, and sees Donatello standing perfectly fine in front of the computer screens. Thinking he had seen April’s Mom come in here, Leo asks the purple-banded genuis whether he has seen her or not, to which the turtle quickly denies. Leo is hesistant to accept that denail, especailly when he notices the broken labtop lying on the floor. Knowing that Donnie would never willingly do that to technology, Leo quickly makes up the excuse that he was mistaken and turns to leave, when Donnie suddenly sprouts Kraang-like arms and begins to attack. Pushing himself to escape, Leo heads for the stairs, but his injuries severely slow him down, and broken step seals his fate. Up in the living room, watching a Halloween show, Raphael hears Leo’s screams and immediately rushes downstairs to aid his brother from what seems to have been a tough fight.

While panting, Leo quickly explains to Raph that Mikey was right, and that April’s Mom really was some alien being. Believing his brother, Raphael tugs out his Sais, and asks where the creature is. Leo responds ‘here’, signifying that Mrs. O’Neil has somehow morphed into him and had done the same with Mikey and Donnie. Fighting for survival against a now Kraang-like ‘Leo’, Raphael manages to cut himself free from his false brother’s Kraang-like arms and escapes by using a smoke bomb to disappear. Meanwhile, outside, Casey and April are both seated on the swinging bench in the front yard as April tells Casey that her mother is planning on leaving tonight, too afraid of the Turtles to stay. Mom wants April to come with her, but April doesn’t know how to react. Casey is upset by the fateful decision, but understands if April really wants to leave with her mom. Just then, Raphael comes rushing out of the farmhouse, fiercely panting for breath. He quickly tells Casey and April everything that Mikey had told them before was right, which the two immediately disbelieve. April’s mom then comes out of the house, alarming Raph, causing the turtle to take a defensive position with his Sais. He demands to know where his brothers are, but Mrs. O’Neil keeps on walking forward. Dubbing her the ‘Mom-Thing’, Raphael gets ready to attack, but April then steps in to stop him, gets grabbed on the wrist by her mom and is dragged away by her. When April cries out for her ‘mother’ to let go, Mrs. O’Neil turns around and reveals her true form to April, before attacking.

A grotesque spider-like figure emerges from within Mrs. O’Neils otherwise innocuous form and this immediately horrifies April, Casey and Raph, and chases them in the direction of the barn. Casey manages to grab hold of the ax imbedded in the tree stump outside and makes a dash into the barn, along with April and Raph. Casey helps Raph barricade the barnhouse doors so that Mom-Thing can’t follow them in. However, the blockade does little to stop the monster, as it burrows underneath the barn and soon bursts inside. Her head then bisects, making her look even more freakish and, when Raphael asks for options on how to stop her, April’s refreeze idea quickly gets replaced by Casey’s crazy stunt to flash fry. The electricity from a nearby power box inflicts some damage on the monster, but not much, so Raph and Casey decide to tackle the Mom-Thing head on. This effort fails, as both guys get caught in a massive suction tube that pulls them down inside Mom-Thing’s body.

Standing alone, April is now faced with the horror of the creature she had believed to be her mother, which cajoles her to unite with it and all of the others it’s swallowed (Mikey, Donnie, Leo, Raph and Casey). When April refuses, the creature’s suction tube latches on to her, but April resists the creature’s pull and her mental powers get the better of her when the situation escalates, blowing up the Mom-Thing into slimy chunks. All of the Turtles that Mom-Thing swallowed are released and remain alive and well. Later, back inside the Kraang Scout Ship, Donatello reveals the truth on what he found out about the creature. The creature that April destroyed was nothing more than an early Kraang inflitration experiment that utilized a combination of Kraang and Mrs. O’Neil DNA, along with retaining some of Mrs. O’Neil’s memories. Since this creature that the Kraang created proved to be extremely dangerous to them, they put it in a deep freeze in the stasis beam, wanting it to remain in there forever.

Leo asks his brothers do they have to discuss this now, as April is disenchanted and feels like she has lost her entire family again, even though the being she destroyed really wasn’t her mom. Leo then offers a hand to her, saying she shouldn’t give up hope and to trust him on that. Mikey cheers her up by saying that she doesn’t have to be sad, as the Turtles have now become her temporary family. This touching moment is ruined not long after, however, as Mikey brags to all of his brothers, shouting that he was right all along. Donnie stops this little celebration when he rememebers that Mikey mentioned something about a little Mutagen being spilled in the woods. Raph then questions Mikey as to where the spilling happened, but Mikey doesn’t remember the exact location and Leo fears that this will all lead to disaster. Meanwhile, near the pond in the woods, a band of frogs with the Mutagen on their heads carelessly hop around, not knowing the changes soon to come.

The 2012 series since its inception has gone fro mstrength to strength and this Halloween episode is brilliant, bringing back original series April O’Neil voice actress was excellent having her voice April’s Mum was a good idea. This episode has it all scares, action and drama a much watch for any TMNT fan.

When Gentleman Ghost attempts to possess Raven to escape, he cracks her gem, which unleashes some of her inner demonic power and results in his defeat. Trigon reveals that Raven’s demonic half is slowly taking over her and offers to take it away, but she refuses to give it to him.71e8zk6t4LL._SL1500_Suddenly, the Titans are abducted by the Master of Games, a being who explores the multiverse with his Worlogog to find the best versions of particular heroes. He pits the 2013 Titans against the original 2003 animated Titans, who agree to fight after the Master of Games threatens to destroy their Earth. 2003 Robin and Cyborg manage to take out all of the 2013 Titans with the exception of Raven. She is coerced into unleashing her demonic power against the 2003 Raven, who snaps her out of it when she realizes the Master of Games is siphoning her demonic energy. The Master of Games reveals himself to be 2013 Trigon, who uses Raven’s energy to resurrect 2003 Trigon. The two Trigons kidnap the Ravens and escape to the 2003 Earth to finish absorbing 2013 Raven’s powers so they can conquer the multiverse.10519267_743169505741924_3711826686541512601_nThe two Titans teams agree to work together to stop the Trigons and rescue their Ravens. 2003 Robin deduces that the Trigons are using a Worlogog from their Earth to travel between dimensions, so they need a Worlogog from the 2013 dimension, which the 2013 Titans realize belongs to Santa Claus. The two teams battle Santa and Mrs. Claus and escape by using the device to travel between dimensions and eventually make it to the 2003 Earth just after 2003 Trigon completely absorbs 2013 Raven’s powers. Fed up with his counterpart’s insults, 2013 Trigon consumes 2003 Trigon and transforms into a new powerful being named Hexagon.41992199_1955607841164745_1867220934398574592_nTo combat this new threat, 2003 Robin uses their Worlogog to summon Titans teams throughout the multiverse to form the “Titans of Infinite Earths”. However, Hexagon proves to be too powerful. 2013 Raven evens the odds by absorbing all of her counterparts and transforms into a dragon known as “The Unkindness”. The Titans destroy Trigon’s Worlogog and assist Raven in getting her powers back, which sends 2003 Trigon into limbo while 2013 Robin uses their Worlogog to send 2013 Trigon to a zombie dimension. After 2013 Raven accepts her demonic half, all of the Titans are sent home to their respective dimensions. Upon returning to their Earth, the 2013 Titans are glad that they don’t have to endure another multiverse-threatening crossover for at least another year, but they are attacked shortly afterwards by Darkseid, whom they refuse to battle out of exhaustion.71643117_10221170888807609_75716815979806720_nOverall, I recommend this movie to everyone. It has fantastic action, perfect comedy, great characters, well written story, catchy music and surprizing twists of events. It really does have something for everyone!

To the Movies (2018)While at the premiere of Batman Again after Raven sent the Challengers of the Unknown to another dimension, Robin humiliates himself, after assuming that there will be a movie about him, and is laughed out by the audience.

The next day, Beast Boy, Starfire, Cyborg and Raven create a movie to cheer up Robin, but he turns it off prematurely declaring that they will go to Hollywood to have a movie made about them. Upon arriving, they encounter director Jade Wilson, who is responsible for all the superhero movies being made. She turns down the Titans’ request to be in a movie, but explains that the only way she would make one about them is if they were the only superheroes in the world. The Titans take her words literally by going back in time to prevent the origins of the other superheroes, but only end up ruining the present, forcing them to go and undo their blunder.Tara Strong, Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Greg Cipes, and Khary Payton in Teen Titans Go!

They find a Doomsday Machine that is heavily guarded by the heroes and try to destroy it, but Jade arrives and reveals that D.O.O.M.S.D.A.Y., is just a terrible acronym for a new streaming service for the new movie she is making. She resolves to drop the rest of the Titans from the film and make it solely about Robin, which he happily accepts, much to the consternation of his team, who wish him luck.Tara Strong, Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Greg Cipes, and Khary Payton in Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018)Robin finishes making the movie, but during a scene where he interacts with a prop version of the Titan Tower door panel, a light falls and knocks him out. He awakens and finishes the scene where Jade reveals that they are now in the tower for real, and that she is actually Slade himself in disguise. He gets the crystal back, restrains Robin, and tells Robin that his making so many superhero movies was a plan to keep the heroes busy while he invaded their cities to build his D.O.O.M.S.D.A.Y. Device to take over the world. Robin escapes from the shackles with his baby hands, and runs out of the exploding tower. The next morning in the wreckage, Robin calls his friends back, who join him with open arms.Tara Strong, Jimmy Kimmel, Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Greg Cipes, Khary Payton, and Halsey in Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018)At the premiere of Robin: The Movie, the Titans arrive and unmask Slade, but Slade unleashes the crystal’s power to control the other heroes and sends them after the Titans.

To the Movies (2018)The heroes all congratulate the Titans for their heroic efforts with Robin admitting that he has learned to be himself. When he tries to go on, everyone demands that they cut to the credits immediately with Robin attempting to stall so that “kids can ask their parents questions.” Starfire breaks the fourth wall to say to go right to the credits, but Robin stops just before the film ends telling kids to “ask [their] parents where babies come from.” In a mid-credits scene, the Teen Titans from the 2003-2006 series show up on a distorted screen telling the viewers that they “found a way back.” In a post-credits scene, the Challengers of the Unknown are still trapped with their leader postulating that they missed the movie.Will Arnett, Tara Strong, Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Greg Cipes, and Khary Payton in Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018)At first glance, This movie looked a little grim from the teaser. But as i saw the whole movie, It made more sense. Surprisingly, this movie was really hilarious and very-well structured. This movie actually had a plot!!!!!! Well, a good plot that actually made sense. Also, Every thirty seconds there would either be a superhero joke or a song. In my opinion, this movie was more of a mini-musical.  However, One of the biggest surprises is during the end credits that has to do with the original Teen Titans!!! So being a 90’s kid, That really made me excited and hyped out to see what happens next!
But if you’re a fan of TTG and looking for a movie to watch then definitely watch this movie! Even if you’re not a fan of TTG, This movie will open your eyes to what the newest generation of kids have created!!!!

The episode starts when the Teen Titans are watching the sun go down by the window…waiting for Halloween to begin…as soon as the sun goes down…the Titans cheer. Robin then announces that it is now the scariest night of the year…HALLOWEEN!!!!! But there is only one thing that they were confused about…what are they going to dress up as??? They last recalled that one Halloween where they dressed up in childish costumes such as a witch and a clown. Then Cyborg came in with a box filled with…cheap plastic costumes of scary monsters. They all were very sad. They didn’t want to end up trick or treating without a costume. Raven then had an idea. She casts a spell to turn all of the Titans into real monsters!!!!! At last when the spell is complete…it turned all of the Titans into some of the most popular monsters of the century…Cyborg into Frankenstein (nicknamed himself Karl just for fun) Beast Boy into a werewolf…Robin a vampire…Starfire a mummy (which she mistakes for “mommy”) and Raven…THE INVISIBLE WOMAN!!!!! She scared her fellow freaky-fabulous monster friends in utter pain. Suddenly…all of the monster Titans fight to see who was the most scary…they showed off their claws and fangs until Starfire…who thinks she is the scariest…shouted “BOO!”…but it didn’t really scare anybody. Now that they’re in their scary attire…Robin then proclaims that its time to scare some kids!!!!! He then shouted his catchphrase with a scary twist…and all of the Titans flew out of the window with a corresponding “blah blah blah” from Robin.71e8zk6t4LL._SL1500_Meanwhile in the streets of Jump City, the new and improved Titan monsters sashayed and scared all of the citizens of their city, rapping their national scary anthem (with Robin and Raven literally SLAYING) At last, after their big scary rendezvous, Robin announced that it has come to a conclusion that they’re now the scariest trick or treaters in Jump City all thanks to their friend Raven (followed with a ‘blah blah blah’). They all cheered with happiness until all of a sudden, the Titan monsters heard a rumble coming from the Tower. Ravens cauldron was shaking and unexpected visitors preached, and stole the show. Raven told the others about the warning that she said earlier about this thing called the “ghost pocalypse”. unfortunately, Cyborg said that Raven did not say anything about no “ghost pocalypse”. Raven argued that she was trying to be you know, spooky. Robin then sided with Raven saying that if they cannot stop the ghosts, they will scare everyone in Jump City forever. But the only way that they can scare them is with there new and improved monsterific style. So they tried…but even in their monster forms…they still got very scared. Robin said that it wasn’t working. Raven then agreed and said that they were not meant to be monsters anyway…but then Starfire had a brilliant plan…why not use their old “cheap” looking costumes from the dollar store to scare the ghosts???71643117_10221170888807609_75716815979806720_nSo…with all of the guts that the Titans have…they managed to scare the ghosts with their adorableness. But after the ghosts got defeated, a HUGE form of the ghosts tried to scare them…but then…the Titans managed to scare the big ghost too. At last, without their boos and hoos…the Titans were ready to enjoy their Halloween…even if they weren’t so “scary”…they still were the most adorable trick or treaters in Jump City. So they took all of the candy and had a complete sugar rush for the rest of Halloween…Happy Halloween everyone from the Teen Titans!!!!!10519267_743169505741924_3711826686541512601_nAnother Titans Halloween, this show is one of those you love it or hate, It’s a fun entry for what it is.

vile1The film starts with a man on an operating table. A surgeon comes in and tortures him by cutting into his chest then pouring salt in his wound. The scene shifts to four friends, Taylor, Tony, Kai, and Nick, on a camping trip. On their way home, they stop at a gas station where an alluring stranger named Diane asks for a ride to her truck, which has run out of gas. Nick agrees, but his girlfriend Taylor is suspicious. Nick drops her off at her truck, and Diane offers to get the girls some of her perfume samples in gratitude. Diane then returns, wearing a gas mask and knocks everyone out with sleeping gas. The friends awaken to find themselves trapped in a house with a dozen other people, one of whom has already gone and ripped off Kai’s nail. After a brief fight, Nick and Tony calm down and learn they have all been captured and the doors are locked. Everyone has a gadget inserted into his or her neck and they watch a video from a projector of a woman telling them they have 22 hours to escape. By doing so they must inflict harm on each other using the weapons they’ve been supplied with.Vile-03Every bit of suffering fills up a jar and once the jar is filled, they will be able to remove the gadgets and escape. If they fail the gadget will inject poison within their brains and kill them. One man, Julian, breaks down and removes his gadget and dies instantly. The others decide they have no choice and begin with Greg, a reporter who may know about this plan and hopes to see his son again. The group beats him and breaks off his fingernails, one girl, Tara, is especially violent and breaks his leg on the table and Greg passes out. Deciding they cannot risk injuring each other to that extent, the group agrees to torture each person up to no higher than 6 percent of the meter in a certain order. Sam is up first, and already has many mysterious wounds. After being burned on the stomach with an iron and having some fingernails ripped out it’s Nick’s turn. In attempt to make things easier for him, Taylor sneaks Nick some oxy pills, however this slows down the meter. While Nick is semi-unconscious,the group contemplates leaving Greg behind, as they’ll need their strength to escape. Everyone agrees except for Tony, while Taylor agrees for both herself and Nick. Next on the list, is a girl named Lisa, who tries to avoid being tortured by hiding but is dragged out by Sam and Tara. Nick eventually regains his senses, and tells Taylor that he would never have opted for the group to leave Greg behind, and he can’t understand why Taylor would. Taylor apologizes for the pills, saying she only meant to help Nick and reveals that she is pregnant. Tara overhears this and informs the group insisting that Taylor go anyway, but Nick volunteers to go for her.Vile-1

Tara tries to stop Nick from giving the remaining pills to Greg, but Tony, fed up, knocks her out and Nick gives Greg the rest of the medication. Later on, Tony, Taylor and Kai, try to get six percent each by sticking their hands in boiling water but Kai backs down so Tony and Taylor stick their arms in the boiling water again. Meanwhile, Tara who has regained consciousness, takes a kitchen knife and tries to kill Tony for punching her. Tony is stabbed in the shoulder and falls to the floor as the boiling water spills onto his body. Tara almost manages to stab him again, but is knocked out again by Nick. Tara regains consciousness on the torture table and immediately asks what percentage the meter is at. Tony tells her that her actions raised the meter to 48%. Tara, somewhat nervous, urges them to get her shift done quickly, but Tony reveals they will be pushing higher than the usual six percent this time. Tara starts to protest that they had voted on six percent and breaks down in tears, begging to be released. But the group took another vote while she was knocked out and decided on this instead. She desperately tries to hold them back and in the process, cuts Kai, fatally wounding her. Tony, distraught and enraged tries to kill Tara but Nick convinces him to keep her alive. Tony agrees, but demands that he gets do what he wants to her, and the rest of the group agrees. Tony severely damages Tara’s larynx with a wrench, removes some her skin with a grater and cuts her arms open with a knife. When Tara finally passes out, the meter is at 80%.

With little time left the remaining five agree to break their collarbones at the same time. Tony is chosen to break everyone’s collar bones, but can’t force himself to break Taylor’s. Nick instead breaks Tony’s, filling the meter to 100%. The projector flashes a new message of the woman congratulating them and instructing them to place the vials in their gadgets in the door allowing them to escape. Sam kills everyone as they leave the room, though Tony has just enough time to warn Nick before Sam stabs him in the stomach. Soon only Greg and Taylor are left in the room while Nick is unable to get back in. Greg, still under the influence of the oxy pills, admits to Taylor that he knew about this cult that feels everyone deserves pain and agony, but he never believed the rumors were true. Sam is revealed to be the one who orchestrated this scenario. Nick chases Sam into the room seen at the beginning where Sam, having removed his gadget, kills Greg with a signal sent from a computer, locking Taylor up again. Taylor tries to escape by inflicting burns on her back with a countertop grill, and hurting her already burned hand. She manages to get the meter back up to 100%. Sam, amused, admits that he was one who had suffered injuries in his life and yet survived, believing, that everyone deserves pain to be innocent. Sam then activates the device containing the poison on the back of Nick and Taylor’s necks. Despite the poison, Nick is able to kill Sam with a screwdriver and takes some of the meds left in the room that counteract the poison. He also uses another device to remove the one from his neck. Nick rushes back to the room, able to see Taylor through a monitor on the screen but unable to reach her as she dies. Through heartbroken Nick uses bolt cutters to free himself from the building and escape.

Some time later, Nick is seen in a restaurant, his injuries healed, ordering waffles and cream. As he looks out the window, Nick spots Diane, hitchhiking with a redneck and goes after her, leaving money on the table. Hours later, Diane tries to offer the redneck and his wife a sample of her products, but he drives off. Diane, disappointed, heads back to her car, only to confronted by Nick, who slams her head against the car, knocking her out. Nick stuffs Diane in the back and puts on “Looks that Kill”on the radio and comments what Diane said earlier: I love this song.MV5BMTY2MjQxMDYwNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzA1MjgwMjE@__V1_SY1000_CR0,0,1424,1000_AL_

It’s a solid, tense first hour with questionable (but believable, considering the circumstances, and assuming you have an open mind) character development that would have benefited from a less ambitious attempt at a dramatic conclusion and something that’s worth a watch for fans of the genre.

David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel in Bones (2005)To resuscitate a dead team out of their scattered disappearance is not an easy task. Luckily the DA in Washington DC is a powerful woman, stubborn and resolute, and she generally gets what she wants. So she brought Agent Booth back from Afghanistan, and Temperance Brennan, aka Bones, from the exotic place where she was trying to get some archaeologically interesting bones with Daisy, Dr Sweet’s girl friend, and Dr Sweet from his hideout somewhere in Paris where he was having a showbiz career as a cabaret singer. They all come back, change clothes and back in the business in a jiffy. Angela and Dr Hodgins are also back though from not so far away and Angela is pregnant.
As usual one case per episode, clean and neat, always dealing with a lot of bones, gross and dirty, soaked in a lot of decomposed muck with a tremendous number of maggots, worms and other corpse parasites. A series not to watch while eating anything more delicate than dry cookies.David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel in Bones (2005)Angela and Dr Hodgins have a full plate with the pregnancy and the delivery of the baby. For them that’s enough and that will require some help from a friendly psychiatrist because it is hard for the father not to become overprotective and it is hard for the mother to accept the physical handicap this pregnancy may represent. Yet they decided that working with the people they are used to work and live with was the best thing for the pregnancy, the mother and the child. Angela was not alone at any moment of her days or nights.Agent Booth brought a journalist back from Afghanistan, a sort of love substitute for Temperance. But will that not cause some problems, like conflicting interests between the two professions? And Booth with his own son is already very busy in life. Will that new woman in the picture be able to cope with a child, what’s more the child of another woman? And the question of marriage will come up sooner or later and how are the two going to react to that eventuality? Probably not very well, maybe not too bad. A decision that is always difficult to take for someone who is constantly in the field of police investigation and for a journalist just back from a war zone.Emily Deschanel in Bones (2005)You have the interns still rotating, the four of them. They are the surprise of each episode because they are so different and they can be so funny, though at times they are just funny for us because they are mismatched with what is happening around them, but that’s what interns are all about. Unluckily one will end up very badly. That’s not the first case, but so far none had ended up that badly. But a song will carry him through: lime and coconut, sung in a chorus all together, mellow and heart stirring.David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel in Bones (2005)There will be a case that will run over the whole season, the case of a sniper who had been a colleague and friend of Booth in Afghanistan and who came back slightly berserk and decided that what he did over there was good enough for the USA too and he started killing those who were rotten, and those who were in his way for his type of justice and these were only collateral victims for him, hence justified by the end. It will take the whole team to stop him and it will bring a lot of suffering and even mourning to that team.
