Bones Says Good-Bye After 12 Years

This is the year of farewells. Bones has come to an end.

From the Wikipedia page:

Created by Hart Hanson, the series is very loosely based on the life and writings of novelist and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, who also produces the show. Its title character, Temperance Brennan, is named after the protagonist of Reichs’ crime novel series.

Bones is a joint production by Josephson Entertainment, Far Field Productions and 20th Century Fox Television. The series is the longest-running one-hour drama series produced by 20th Century Fox Television.

George Takei as the Doctor!?

Written by: Christopher Lee

My friend Sarah (check out her blog) just picked up a ukelele and learned how to play “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”. She posted the achievement on facebook, to which I replied by posting the camping scene from “Star Trek V” where the crew sings along to Spock’s plinking on his Vulcan Lute. This, of course, resulted in me watching a few more clips from the classic adventure where I noted a quick, funny little thing…..

Sulu, better known as the social media giant George Takei, performing a quick little scene that, to me, felt VERY reminiscent of a certain “3rd incarnation” of everyone’s favorite travelling Doctor. As if we needed more proof of Mr. Takei’s awesomenitude (yeah, I just made that up, but it’s fitting and you like it.)

Watch from about :20 to :34…

 I mean, c’mon…the “capelet”, the “judo” (though, to be picky, it looks more like Aikido), the “sonic screwdriver-esque” tool he uses. It’s too obvious to me to NOT be a “nod”. What do you think?
