'Bones' birth react: Was it as great as you'd imagined?

If you had asked me seven years ago whether Bones and Booth would ever have a baby, I would have laughed in your face at the mere suggestion. “That just wouldn’t work,” I would have said. Plus, Bones…a mother?! BUAHA!

And yet, here we are. In the past year, our beloved couple has taken more unexpected roads than a teen driver without GPS, and the most unforeseen path of them all culminated tonight with the birth of their baby girl, Christine Angela.

Now, while I expect some form of nit-picking to take place after this episode, the show’s first after a long hiatus, I’ll just say this: I personally couldn’t think of a better way for Christine, the product of a genius and a hero, to come into this world. It was exciting, tender, and, above all, one heck of a story for her to tell one day. (Not a minute old, and she’s already having adventures!) And I’m saying that as someone who’d built up the moment in my head since the end of last season, when Booth’s “I’m going to be a dad again” smile lit up my soul.

While investigating a murder, Bones and Booth found themselves inside a prison and among hardened criminals. Perfect time for your water to break, wouldn’t you say? No, not really. But there, in the middle of a prison riot with a murderer sprawled on the ground, that’s when Bones decided to declare, “I’m in labor!” With no time to spare, no available rooms at the closest inn, and no chance of stopping the baby, Booth and Bones had to settle for…a barn.

PopWatch Confessional: I watch 'shipper fan videos. Which are your favorites?

It’s not a cool thing to admit. At all. But in the spirit of PopWatch’s sacred Confessionals, I have to admit: I’ve spent a lot of time watching fan videos on YouTube lately.

This is far from a recent development. I’ve watched many ‘shipper (relationship + supporter = ‘shipper) videos in the past, but I just had a few days off recently that were spent largely following a trail of videos after my friend sent me a great one about How I Met Your Mother‘s Barney and Robin.

Once upon a time, I had an entire playlist dedicated to fan videos, but after that account was closed, I lost my comprehensive — and, frankly, dated — selections and never had the time to start it up again. I started a new one this past weekend after coming across several I loved.

That’s not meant to sound like I have that many favorites. In fact, there’s a lot of crap out there. And I don’t feel bad saying that. I saw some Booth and Bones videos set to Enrique Iglesias’s “Hero” that I refuse to admit actually exist, and am totally amazed at how many people still think “Kiss Me” is still the most romantic song ever made. But there is small, select collection with remarkably fine editing work — both in terms of clip and music selection. Bonus points go to those who find a way to incorporate dialogue or moments. And the supreme fan-vid editors can make you cry. Yes, actual waterworks.

That didn’t happen but once during my recent excursion into the world of fan videos, and yes, I felt like a corny idiot. Then I pressed “replay.”

Judge me if you will; I won’t blame you. But if you’re so inclined, share or talk about some of your favorites below. Here are a few of mine: READ FULL STORY

Fall TV post-mort: What are you still watching? DVR'ing?

Let’s think back for a moment to the start of the fall TV season when we were giddy with hope and optimism about all the new (Hart of DixieNew Girl! The X Factor!) and old (Modern Family! Glee! Fringe!) shows we’d watch in the months ahead. Back then I posted a series of blog posts outlining what I planned to view live versus DVR every night of the week. At the time, I really did have every intention of sticking to my schedule, but naturally as the weeks wore on and plotlines developed my interests began to waver, for better and for worse. I’m sure you know what I mean, unless you’re one of those people who actually follows through with your goals, in which case we can’t be friends. Nevertheless, now that we’re in the midst of the dreaded hiatus period, I figured it would be a good time to reflect on where we started off this season and where we ended up. Check out my day-by-day post-mort below, beginning with all the shows I so naively intended to watch: READ FULL STORY

'Bones' premiere react: 'Moonlighting' curse avoided?

After Bones‘ May finale in which we found out Brennan was pregnant with Booth’s child, exec producer Stephen Nathan joked to EW, “A lot of viewers always make up their mind on how we’re gonna ruin the show before it happens. And hopefully we will disappoint those viewers.” Did they ruin the show? If you haven’t seen tonight’s season 7 premiere, stop reading now. SPOILERS AHEAD!  READ FULL STORY

Happy Halloween (and watch our season premiere!) from 'Bones'

You’d be hard-pressed to find a show that has more fun with its dead bodies than Bones. To celebrate Halloween — and promote Nov. 3’s long-awaited season 7 — Fox has put together a video of some of its greatest/grossest hits. Enjoy that chocolate now, people! READ FULL STORY

Fall TV Thursdays: What to watch live? What to DVR?

No self-respecting TV lover should ever have to choose between a snarky (and often shirtless) Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries and a witty (and often shirtless) Jeff Winger on Community. And yet, here we are. For me, Thursday night’s TV lineup is the most difficult to navigate. There are just so many good shows from a variety of genres and they all fall into the same time slots. Not cool. Anyway, after a lot of second-guessing, I’ve finally settled on my viewing schedule for the next couple of months and, in effect, decided which TV boyfriend I’m breaking up with. It wasn’t pretty, but it had to be done.

8 p.m. – 9 p.m.
LIVE: The Vampire Diaries (CW): Damon Salvatore, you’ve got my heart viewership. As much as I adore Community, TVD’s twists and turns pretty much guarantee that I will be shoving people out of my way to get home in time for this series. (Premiered Sept. 14)
DVR: Community & Parks And Recreation (NBC): Just because I won’t be seeing Winger during Community’s regularly scheduled time slot this season, doesn’t mean we can’t play catch up later. Since the show is just half-an-hour, I plan to use the remainder of the time to get up to date on the equally dysfunctional (and hilarious) Parks & Rec gang. (Premieres tonight) READ FULL STORY

CBS' new drama 'Unforgettable:' Could it be the next 'Bones' or 'Castle'?

Take a strong female lead, throw in a love/hate relationship with her partner and a couple of good crime cases and you’ve got yourself the next hit series. Am I right? Well, maybe.

Last night, CBS debuted Unforgettable, a new procedural that has some key ingredients in common with the likes of Bones and Castle. Whether that turns out to be a good thing or not is up for debate (and we will debate!), but first let’s breakdown the premiere episode. READ FULL STORY

Fall TV survival guide: How to navigate life with your newly jam-packed schedule

Now that you’re armed with our Fall TV Preview double issue, it’s time to hit the ground running. And by hit the ground running, we of course mean settling in for a lot of television viewing from the comfort of your couch. Still, we realize this can all be pretty overwhelming. After all, for as much television as we consumed over the summer — from Big Brother to True Blood — the viewing schedule wasn’t nearly as jam-packed as it soon will be. (Plus, we even went outside from time to time!) With the premieres of all the new and returning programs just days away, now is the time to get ready. (If you’re far behind on a series, like say, The Good Wife or Community or The Vampire Diaries, you’d better start watching those DVDs to catch up riiiiight… NOW!) But, don’t fret, dear PopWatchers, we’re here to help. After all, you’ll need to outwit, outplay, and outlast all of life’s distractions so you don’t miss a moment of Survivor. Here now, a fall television survival guide:

Find a buddy: Why do we watch TV? To talk about it the next day, of course! Like in college when you’d take classes with a pal and take turns attending so you could exchange notes (which this writer totally never engaged in, just knew people who did), you’ll need a partner through the fall TV season. Shack up with your quirky pals to watch New Girl together or have weekly gatherings to discuss who your favorite contestant is on X Factor. Either way, you can’t do this alone. READ FULL STORY

'Covert Affairs': Are Auggie and Annie the new Booth and Brennan, Castle and Beckett -- only less frustrating?

hey agree with me that if that’s going to happen, it needs to happen a long, long time from now,” he said. “Most of what makes those pairings so much fun is the potential, the flirting, the missed opportunities. That’s what’s so exciting. If you go there too soon, you let the air out of the balloon.”

As someone who’s seen every episode of Bones with six seasons of sexual tension that needed to be acted on, watching a series that allows you to enjoy some chemistry but not feel the desire to force it is just so… pleasant. Because Covert Affairs doesn’t revolve around their relationship alone, what with Annie usually out in the field and Auggie at his desk, we accept that their friendship will naturally deepen at a slower pace.  READ FULL STORY
