Is Bones really just Star Trek?

Asked by zensky (13272 points ) January 28th, 2012

Bones being Spock, Uhura is there – the shrink is Doc, and Booth is Kirk, of course. The lab looks like the bridge…

Go outside, @zensky . There’s a big world out there, and it’s full of pretty colors. ;-)

But you’re here… and I’ve been away for over a week…

But I’m not dressed yet, stop grinning, you fool and as soon as I’m done with my coffee I’m going out into the sunshine!

Not even a little. Seeing the world through Star Trek-colored glasses.

Reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon I saw once: “Star Trek: The Ashtray.”

Haha. I do love Bones, but the characters sometimes seem like walking caricatures. That’s true of a lot of TV dramas, though, so sometimes characters from different shows end up being really similar.

It’s what, a two-hour drive? Put the kettle a boil. I’m on my way, as soon as I can catch Milo.

I haven’t seen the show Bones. I hardly watch TV and wasn’t even aware of its existence until just this second when I read your question.

I was just about to chide you for lack of Trek knowledge. “Bones” isn’t Spock! “Bones” is the nickname that Kirk gave to Dr. McCoy!

Then I googled Bones (just to double check my facts) before clicking on Answer! and I discovered that you’re talking about a new TV show. D’oh!

Well… new it isn’t.

I have been watching it faithfully since it started. The show is based on the life of a real person. It is one of the most entertaining shows on for the past six years.

I have absolutely no fucking idea what you’re talking about.

But it sounds like you need some faith. :)

Not so sure about the others, but I can see Bones as a Vulcan.
