Bones – TV Review


Ah, procedural cop drama-type stuff. I love it. It doesn’t have to be good, although I do prefer it if it is. Bones is good. Really good. Not strictly scientifically accurate, but I have several podcasts and websites I can go to if I want accurate science.

Dr Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a specialist in bones. Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanz) is an FBI agent. Through a couple of cases, they end up working together, along with her team; Angela (Michaela Conlin) who does art stuff and has a crazy and, maybe, impossible machine to create 3D representations of people, objects and scenes; Jack (T.J.Thyne) who does insects; Zach (Eric Millegan) but we don’t talk about what happens to Zach; and later on, Camille (Tamara Taylor) and psychologist Dr Sweets (John Francis Daley).

The cases are generally very gross. There are all kinds of relationships happening, including a long-term will-they-or-won’t-they with the two main characters which, thank goodness, turns into a relationship. I like the show because I like all of the characters a lot, especially Brennan and Booth. Plus, every now and then, something genuinely unexpected happens, and that’s pretty cool.
