* ArcFatigue: Pelant. He appeared on the middle of season 7 and was only caught early on season 9, fans accused him of being a CreatorsPet and accused the writers of abusing the AssPull to keep him in the show. Fans rejoiced when he finally was [[spoiler: killed by Booth.]]

** [[BilingualBonus Knowing Norwegian]] and listening to the prologue dialogue of "[[Recap/BonesS4E21MayhemOnACross Mayhem on a Cross]]" will have you laugh as it's so gramatically wrong. And "Absolutt", despite being more or less same word as "abosolutely" is it not used in the same situations as English works differently. Also with Deschanel's hillariously wrong pronuciation of "skalle"(skull) which sounds more Swedish than Norwegian and her correcting the others who actually say it ''right'', and with the police acting nothing like Norwegian police is the cherry on top, which makes it an episode hard to seriously. One can actually see the Norwegian actor wanting to say it's wrong, but not daring to.

** See Narm for more on this. The Norwegian in the episode "Mayham on a Cross" is clearly not written by someone who knows the language very well, and is seemingly more English put into google translate. There are more than enough Norwegians in the business, or you know ONLINE, they could've asked for help. Even the Norwegian actor in the scene! The Norwegian police acts nothing like their real-life counterparts either. So in the end it's just kinda the glorification some republicans wants to return to when rights for someone else than themselves is mentioned. Well, it's FOX so...

**On a further note; Brennan's extreme literal mindedness, I'm always right attitude, and complete lack of either imagination or personality for some viewers gets old fast.

* InternetBackdraft: The Season 8 finale has ignited a firestorm of rage over what many have called an outright DiabolusExMachina aimed right at Brennan and Booth's relationship for the sole purpose of generating melodrama and making Pelant into a VillainSue.
* JumpingTheShark: In “The Fury in the Jury”, Dr. Brennan serves as a juror and claims that despite making their case (which she herself admitted they did) since they didn’t do [[ExactWords it without a reasonable doubt]] the defendant should be found innocent and then somehow convinces the other jurors to vote not guilty as well. The rest of the episode depicts her sympathetically due to a combination of MyGodWhatHaveIDone and SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong as she tries to find evidence to [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot convict a man that she herself set free]]. All in all this episode shows the first signs of Brennan’s new CreatorsPet status.

* MarySue: Pelant’s sue status seems to have been transferred over to Brennan after his death. For example, in “The Fury in the Jury”, Dr. Brennan serves as a juror and despite believing that the prosecution made their case since they didn’t do it without a reasonable doubt, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero she decided to vote not guilty]] and convinced the ignorant {{Muggles}} to do the same using InsaneTrollLogic to convince them. So when the murderer walks the rest of the episode, Brennan is depicted as sympathetic despite trying to fix a problem that she caused. This leads the FridgeHorror of the ''Bones'' universe being a CrapsackWorld due to the fact that it seems that only Doctor Brennan can solve crimes.
** “The Spark in the Park” can be seen as a JumpingTheShark moment to some, where the victim’s father forgot he talk to his daughter the night she died, ignored all questioning of the incident in favor of finishing his work, and pretty much seemed not to care about his daughter in the least. Not only did Brennan defend this man she pretty much said that if Booth ever died she would do the same thing. In the end despite all of this the killer turned out to be someone else forcing Booth to say that Brennan was right.
*** To matters worse there were plenty of people in the episode besides the father who had legitimate reasons to be mad at the girl yet the one who did the deed made the least sense out of all of them.

* YouLookFamiliar: One actor played at least two minor roles on the show—first as a patient of Sweets, whose session Booth interrupts, interested in having a sex change; and again as a patient of Sweets who's interrupted, this time as someone who may have multiple personalities.
** Are we sure its not the same patient?
*** I think it is the same patient, maybe all the interrupted sessions create more mental issues <grin>
*** It's a wonder that guy is still an FBI agent.
** Actor Larry Poindexter, who played Senator Bethlehem in the pilot, also played the victim of the week's ex-husband and one of the suspects, Dr. Bradley Perkins, in S8's The Doll in the Derby.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Dr Brennan’s abandonment issues with her father. This is brought up multiple times with her continuously forgiving her father only for her to be suspicious of him again the next time she sees him. While this in itself is annoying what really makes Brennan this is that she is forced to do the same thing. Not only does she not see anything wrong with her actions she doesn’t even notice how hurt Booth was at loosing that time with his daughter but her as well. Yet despite this she still has the same abandonment issues with her father.
