The team investigates a body found in a car crash, the remains of which belong to a founder of a men's rights organization who may have been the victim of domestic abuse. As Brennan learns more about the tenets of the victim's organization, which claims middle-aged white men are oppressed and feminists are man-haters, Brennan uncharacteristically loses her cool during an interrogation and assaults the organization's co-founder. Meanwhile, Angela and the team struggle to deal with Hodgins post-wheelchair bitterness and Booth is convinced Brennan is a jinx for the Philadelphia Flyers.

I usually love this show but....
8 May 2019 | by abbeleySee all my reviews

..... this episode is the first (and hopefully the only) one that I have turned off because of how awful the storyline was. As a woman I was not left feeling empowered or even entertained, I was left feeling bad for men. They took a few valid concerns real men have and mashed them with criminally misogynistic messages. Every now and then there is an episode that clearly possesses the views of the series creators but this was ridiculous. That's with me not even acknowledging the terrible thing happening with Hodgins and Angela.
