aka I actually liked Sweets in The Salt in the Wounds.  I didn't just tolerate him; I actually liked him.  I thought his scene with Angela in the chiropractor's office was beautiful.  Understated and natural and just perfect.  

*shakes head*

I know.  I can't believe it either.

Ha ha - I liked him in that one, too. Wait for Mayhem on the/a (still am not sure) Cross. You'll ♥ him in that ;)

So does this mean you are beginning to get caught up?

As of now, I am completely caught up! And you're right -- I did like him in Mayhem. :)

Yay! You're back with us. I bet it was a true hardship mainlining Bones for all that watching!

What did you think of Mayhem? I thought the end was ♥

Oh, I actually liked him in that one, too. It's so hit or miss with him.

"Hit or miss" is exactly right, Liz. :)

I have to say, I never disliked Sweets except for those few weeks when I thought he was Gormagon. Now, because of his childhood and his "imprinting" on Booth and Brennan, I feel for him terribly and want him to be happy.

His history is sad, and I agree about wanting him to be happy. However, I generally found him pretty annoying because he didn't seem to have a purpose on the show, and it felt like he kept getting shoved into places and situations where he didn't actually need to be. Plus I think he kind of takes Booth's place; Booth isn't a psychologist, but his intuition and people skills seemed to be enough for the team. Oh, and the lack of professional ethics pissed me off, too. *g*

Now they've finally stopped faffing about with shoe-horning him into the most inappropriate scenarios, he does come across better. And I agree, he finds his feet finally in Mayhem on a cross but he does have help from a proper psychologist. *g*

faffing about with shoe-horning him into the most inappropriate scenarios - What a clever way to put it, that's exactly how I feel about Sweets.

What?! Ok, that's it, you're not on my f-list any more... Just kidding ;) Will have to watch The Salt in the wounds again to see if it's a case of losing marbles & hell freezing or actually true. And I do admire people who admit to changing their mind about something.

LMAO. I liked him in Salt. But that doesn't mean I've changed my mind about him in a broader sense; I still think he isn't a necessary component of the show.

Copied and pasted from above: I generally found him pretty annoying because he didn't seem to have a purpose on the show, and it felt like he kept getting shoved into places and situations where he didn't actually need to be. Plus I think he kind of takes Booth's place; Booth isn't a psychologist, but his intuition and people skills seemed to be enough for the team. Oh, and the lack of professional ethics pissed me off, too. *g*

So if he's going to be on the show for the long haul, I might be able to tolerate him, depending on what they have him do in future eps. But generally speaking, I have issues with him.

I've always liked Sweets. Mostly for the reason that he serves no real purpose. He just wants friends and has attached himself to the Jeffersonian...I find that pretty funny.

Mostly for the reason that he serves no real purpose.

*g* That's one of the main reasons why I generally find him so irritating.

I know ... he's growing on me too. Weird.

Horrors! Sweets has been growing on me also. I still hate how often they shoehorn him in though. I really resent the whole interview thing - Booth seemed to do just fine interviewing suspects on his own, thank you very much.
