The Female of the Species

Posted: 12/02/2005 in television

Please don’t miss read this as a call to arms against tv stereotypes, just an observation that made me smile. In Bones the main female character is an forensic anthropologist, and they seem to underline the fact that she is anthropologist by making her wear chunky ethnic necklaces (in every scene). I am waiting for the episode were we visit her home and discover that she has a sweat shop in her spare bedroom churning out an endless supply of trinkets. The accented necklace trick appears to work along the same lines as making a character wear glasses.
