Watch: Tamara Taylor talks 'Bones' and 'Invasion of the Mother Suckers'
What's in store for Cam as 'Bones' begins Season 8
Interviews are all about priorities. You have to know what you want to discuss and if you have limited time, you can't dilly-dally in getting there.
And that's why my very first question for "Bones" co-star Tamara Taylor wasn't about any of the pivotal things that happened to Cam Saroyan in last season's finale -- no less an expert than Patricia Belcher's Caroline Julian called Cam the hero of the finale -- or any key developments going forward.
Nope. I wanted to talk about "Invasion of the Mother Suckers," the blaxploitation homage B-movie that surfaced last season and featured Cam in her pre-Jeffersonian days.
So yes, this interview touches on Season 8, which premieres on Monday (September 17) night. Taylor and I discussed her appreciation of more serialized storytelling and how that ties into the Pelant arc. We also talked about why it was nice to see Cam respected for what she did in the finale.
"Invasion of the Mother Suckers."
