How Does It Hold Up: Bones Pt. 1

Most recently, I have been rewatching Bones. It is one of my favorite procedural shows because of its application of forensic science. I absolutely loved it because it showed science and a real-world application for it. Not only that, but I scientist all had different personalities. I have seen other shows were characters that fall into a certain type all have the same personality. I decided to rewatch this show because I stopped watching the shows a few years before it went off the air. If I am remembering correctly, I stopped watching because I hated a plot line to the story was going down. I’ve seen some promos from after that point where it seemed like to show was getting on a better track before the show ended. The review for right now is on the first half of the show or pre-pregnancy as I like to call it. The first six seasons held some of my favorite episodes. There were some cringe-worthy moments, but I embraced every single one of them. It felt really good to be a part of the squint squad again. I felt every heartbreak and every cry of rejoicing as if I had watched it for the first time. I can definitely see myself watching these six seasons over and over again.

Not Your Typical Vampire

I recently reread of book Moon Dance by J. R. Rain. I loved this series when I was a bit younger, not much younger, but it has been a couple of years. I stopped reading it because I got to the end that the author had written for it, which was about five books, so I was waiting for more to come out. While I was waiting, I, of course, forgot all about it.I was recently looking through my Kindle books, remembered this series, and wanted to see where it had gone to. Turns out that this series, titled Vampire for Hire has fourteen main books and a couple of spin-offs. Being the person I am (who loves vampire novels) decided that I was going to read the entire thing, no matter how bad it gets. And as a first entry, it’s a pretty good one. The story follows Samantha Moon, a recently turned vampire, who is trying to keep her family together by being a Private Investigator so that she can keep her own hours. From what I have read so far, it of course keeps that basic vampire tropes, (being unable to go out into sunlight, sleeping through the day, etc.), but adds the element that she it around her human family, taking care of her kids like the average mom, and at the same time trying to keep her secret (horribly at times, I will admit). So far, I think it’s really good, and I have a feeling that it’s going to add to it. Now, instead of reviewing every single book, I’m going to add updates as I read the rest of the books, to show how I’m feeling about it and then give a “full length” review again as I finish the series. At this point, I would suggest checking it out. We’ll just have to wait and see where everything goes.

Those Who Work, Eat

The protagonist of Shounen Maid takes this every seriously. He is a totally neat freak, who lives with is uncle after the death of his mother. He, in fact, forces himself to be a maid do he doesn’t feel like a free loader and can clean the house to his own content. The premise is kinda flimsy but it’s a watch. I will also admit that you might love this show if you like a very slow going show, but me, I was checking the time every view minutes to see how long I had left. Checking the time is a sure sign that it’s not something you love, but it was something to watch while I was bored.
