It would be funny if it wasn't sad
8 January 2020 | by Tha_veethSee all my reviews

In a such important episode like this one, they do one poor research on a character like Kovac. Despite warm and love-filled atmosphere with the wedding and everything, emotional charge with the hearing, HUGE mistakes made that are too big and irritating to be ignored. There is no Serbian surname as Kovac (KovaCH), the closest one in Kovachevich. His father named Josip who got killed by Booth in 95' Bosnia can not be Serbian with that name, which is one of the most popular and characteristically names for CROATS (there is no that name in Serbs), and I can not forgive that mistake because his father plays huge role in this story (he is the reason of Kovac's revenge) + he is "SERBIAN WARLORD" in the world's most bloodthirsty war after WW2, with CROATIAN NAME (you for real?). Actors who play these characters look more like Chinese than Serbs. Have you ever seen an average South-Europe Slav? Poorly created backstory of "bloody Serbs" looks like this part of the Bones was created in one of the Hague courts. Not a single Serbian name they got right. I got too far with this one. As far as the other scenes in episode, they did decent job. Tension is present, and it makes nice overture to the last episode.
