A moving metaphor from “Bones”

Here’s a rather moving metaphor from the season 4 finale of "Bones" – "The End In The Beginning":

You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that’s the sad truth.

Maybe they’ll break your heart, maybe you’ll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks.

You see two people and you think they belong together. But nothing happens. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable.

That’s the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens that allow us to fly…

Wouldn’t it be nice if two people can love each other unconditionally in the first place; how there wouldn’t be the barrier that erects itself automatically to protect them from any potential hurt, how they can share their thoughts and feelings in complete freedom, without the fear of being judged or misunderstood, for their love for each other is unconditional – like the love God has for us and the freedom we have in our prayers to God.

Yeah, I guess "that’s the sad truth" about love between human beings. But still, it’s nice to be able to finally confirm that that Brennan really loves Booth, just like in Futurama when we get confirmation that Leela loves Fry.

TV Recommendation – Dollhouse

Here’s another TV show I’d recommend – Dollhouse.

The story is based on a private underground organization who engages on mission-based tasks for clients using people called "Active"s, who have had their original personalities and memories wiped clean, and replaced with new ones specifically selected at the start of each mission (or "engagement"). At the end of each engagement, the Active’s memories are wiped clean and returned to a child-like state.

The name of the shown comes from the fact that the Actives live inside a house with a controlled environment between engagements during which they are in a child-like state of mind, analogous to Dolls in a Dollhouse.

As the plot develops, the main character "Echo" (played by Eliza Dushku), started to show sings that she may have retained certain character traits of the personas she inherited during her previous engagements. There are of course other interesting twists to do with the ugly history of the organization and the organization’s potential (but currently unknown) enemies.

I have no idea how the story is going to unfold, but I sure am looking forward to the next episode!

Yes! It’s now official – Leela loves Fry!

Here’s the moment all Futurama fans had been waiting for! It’s official – Leela loves Fry!

TV Recommendation – Lie to Me

"Lie to me" title screen

If you like Bones, here’s a TV show I’d recommend you checking out – "Lie to Me".

"Lie to Me" presents a fictional story of a crime-fighting psychologist (Dr. Cal Lightman) and his team. The structure of the episode is similar to that of Bones’ where they get a case at the beginning, and solves it in the end. The interesting part, for me, is to see how important clues that affects the outcome of a case, can be extracted accurately from the subtle expressions / body language of suspects during interrogations.

TV Recommendation – Being Erica

Here’s a show I’d recommend you checking out – Being Erica.

The story is about a smart 32 year old fictional woman (Erica Strange) whose life is full of regrets. After meeting a mysterious therapist (Dr. Tom), she was given a chance to go back in time with foresight and revisit those events she will come to regret, in the hope of understanding and coming to terms with her choices.

2 episodes had been aired so far and I will be looking forward to the rest of season 1!

It is an interesting question – What would you have done differently if you are given a chance to go back in time with foresight? Would you even want to change the past knowing full well what it will lead to?

For me, there are certainly things I would like to have done differently, and those actions may have lead me to live a completely different life, or, may turn out to not change things significantly at all. But the more I think about it, in a strange way, I’d rather not change my past as a whole, even knowing full well where it will lead me along with the unanswerable questions I now have. But I guess the main reason why I wouldn’t want to change the past significantly is because all the major events and experiences all combined to lead me to know God in a way that I never thought would be possible.

Anyway, sorry about turning this into a little story of my life – but do check the show out!
