Jamie Frevele lives in New York where she writes for Huffington Post & Newsday. She became hooked on Bones during a short period of unemployment. She says that she became bored and picked up the Bones DVDs. She watched seasons 1 and 2 nonstop and instantly “fell in love with the uniquely character-driven procedural comedy drama.” She also writes her own blog, http://flummoxology.blogspot.com
Wendy Young lives in Louisville, TN. She’s one of the fans Bones picked up during the strike hiatus, actually. She started watching on Hulu in early 2008 and quickly watched everything they had to offer, then bought the S1 and S2 DVD sets. The show completely hooked her and she’s seen every episode more than once. As for work, I she’s a Jill-of-all-trades at an engineering firm.

Wendy and Jamie discuss how bad they feel that Bones creator Hart Hanson thinks that the show has a “negative Internet presence” and why we think he needs a hug.
JAMIE: Wendy, that article really upset me, the one on Blogcritics.
WENDY: I know. Hearing bad things about Bones is really not the kind of press I like to see.
JAMIE: It’s like Hart Hanson is the Willie Randolph of Bones. Except the season finale actually had high ratings as opposed to having an historic collapse and he wasn’t fired at 3 AM.
WENDY: Other than that, you’re right – exactly alike.
JAMIE: Don’t sass me, Wendy. But seriously, the whole tone he took – I think he needs a hug.
WENDY: I agree. We can’t help it if we don’t proclaim our love as loudly as the detractors proclaim their hate. Sorrreeeee – if we love the show, we’re going to be grammatically correct, spell check and engage in lively and civilized discussion.
JAMIE: We could change our ways. How about this: OMG i cant beliv he did that 2 zak but i like 2tle respect tha cre8v deciszion that wuz made WOOOOOOOOOOOO booth iz sooooooooo hotttttttt
JAMIE: That was “totally.” I tried.
WENDY: Oh, right. Yeah, I don’t want to do that.
JAMIE: Yeah, me neither.
WENDY: Don’t get me wrong, David Boreanaz is quite attractive.
JAMIE: I concur. Though I honestly think they’re all hot.
WENDY: It’s a good-looking cast. But this Hart thing is bothering me.
