I haven’t blogged about Bonekickers since episode two, but I have continued watching. The final episode is now several days behind me, but I’m just now getting around to blogging about it. Mostly because I haven’t really been able to decide what I think. Even now that I’m sitting down to write this, I’m still in two minds about some of it.

In final summary I’ve watched the series and it wasn’t so terrible I want those six hours of my life back. The series fails the instant you try to take it seriously, but as long as you take it for what it is (action based entertainment) it’s a reasonably enjoyable experience.

But on the other hand, while I did enjoy the series, it always left me with the nagging feeling that, somehow, it just wasn’t there. The writers did follow through on the arc they’d been planting since the start of the series in the final episode, but it turned out to be little more than an empty MacGuffin.1

The bottom line is this: if (and this is a big if) there is a second series, I’m not sure I’d watch it. There was good stuff in the first series, but not really enough to make me anticipate a new series. It may have been a reasonably nice way to kill some time, but I’m not excited enough to be looking forward to a possible continuation.
