We watch both shows, and love both shows. But I love Bones just a little bit more. I think it’s a combination of things – the characters, the romance, the storylines, the writing.
While Castle and Kate are fun, Booth and Brennan just have that special something that makes them work. Same goes for the secondary characters. Like Castle and Kate, Ryan and Esposito are fun, but in my opinion, they don’t have the depth that Angela, Hodges, Cam, Sweets and the Squinterns have. As for the romance, I gotta say that Bones and Brennan have it all over Castle and Kate. For me, Castle and Kate’s romance is kinda one-note, whereas Bones and Brennan have the type of romance that seems to go way deeper. Same goes for storylines and overall writing. I think Castle is best when they’re doing something funny, like chasing Bigfoot or tracking down what Castle thinks is an alien from outer space. Bones, on the other hand, does serious drama as well as comedy by balancing the two in a way that works.
Plus, I have a thing for David Boreanaz!
So, while I love both shows, if I had to pick a favorite, it’d be Bones all the way!
