This is sort of a continuation of yesterday’s Top Five Tuesday discussion; not that I want to continue to say what I DON’T want to have happen between B&B, but more that I’m interested in your thoughts on whether or not B&B (as characters) fit the standard storyline, or if they are setting new grounds.
I’ve seen people ‘warn’ Castle writers (not to their face or anything) that they should be wary of going the way of BONES. Hmmm…I don’t know what I think about that. For one thing, I mostly love the way of BONES, so any show that tried to be like it would be good, in my book. At least, for the most part, BONES has had story to back up their ‘will they/won’t they’, making it not TOO soapy (for the most part).
Are we looking at a classic “Boy meets girl; Boy loses girl; Boy gets girl back” storyline? Or is it more like “Boy meets girl; boy loses girl; Boy gets partner”? And what does THAT mean?
I guess what I’m trying to ask is this: If the end result for B&B is that “it’s all good”, and it will be…
…is it possible that they got their under different means, by breaking the mold, or are we really just seeing the same type of storyline being played out? In what other ways do B&B break the mold, and in what ways do they fit the standard archetype of a romantic relationship?
Peace, Love & Bones
