Product Description

Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) are back for more mystery, murder, and mayhem in the fifth season of Bones. Relying on Brennan’s unparalleled scientific abilities and Booth’s street-wise instincts, the sexy, crime-solving duo and their team face everything from modern-day witches to murdered rock-n-rollers as they scramble for evidence to stop a gruesome serial killer. This spectacular new season brings a wedding, the show’s landmark 100th episode, and decisions Bones and Booth must make that could change their lives forever.

Amazon.com

At first glance, Bones is a solid crime procedural. But as the series enters its fifth season, it's clear that Bones really works as a romantic drama as well. Not romantic in the mushy sense, but in a way that makes viewers' hearts skip a beat (from joy at seeing a good coupling, not from the shock of all the gory bodies being discovered, examined, and dissected). FBI special agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) and forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) have a complicated relationship that gets stronger over time. The writers have done an admirable job in throwing viewers a few bones to hint at what could be for the pair and this is no more evident than in the season premiere, where Booth is given the OK to return to work and Bones returns from a soul-searching trip to Guatemala. And in the 100th episode ("The Parts in the Sum of the Whole"), which Boreanaz directed, the series goes back in time six years to when Booth first met Bones. And it's clear that the two were attracted to each other then, sharing an admiration of solving a case efficiently and correctly. Who knew that decayed bodies could be such a turn-on? There's a lot going on this season, and some of the episodes do fall short. The case revolving around witchcraft doesn't ring true and the quest to ID body parts found in a shark isn't up to par by Bones standards. But overall, the season is a winner. Whether the team is racing against time to deal with a serial killer, finding clues left by a compulsive hoarder, or simply celebrating another wedding, the viewer is left anticipating what comes next. The six-disc set includes all 22 episodes from the fifth season, which originally aired during the 2009-2010 television season. "The Bodies of the Bones" featurette is as fascinating as it is gross and "The Nunchuck Way" special feature is pretty cool. While the gag reel is fun to watch, it at times may leave you wondering if the actors purposely made mistakes simply to put on the DVD. --Jae-Ha Kim

Format: DVD
At the beginning of the fifth season of the wildly popular forensic drama "Bones," many viewers tuned in trepidatiously after the spectacularly strange fourth season finale. Thankfully, all fears were allayed and relieved when the fifth season kicked into high gear in the very first episode and maintained that pace throughout the season; "Bones"' fifth season is perhaps its greatest yet.

The one thing that has always set "Bones" apart from the countless other procedurals on the airwaves right now is the focus on the characters solving the crimes rather than the crimes themselves, and the strength of this approach shines through brilliantly in every episode of this season.

David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel return to the roles of Booth and Bones and deliver their strongest performances yet as each character is shaken to their core. As Booth struggles to regain his sense of self, he has to confront the knowledge of his feelings for his partner, while Bones herself goes through a whirlwind of emotion as the emotional barriers she has erected around her heart begin to crumble down, leaving her questioning not only herself but her relationship with Booth as well as her work at the Jeffersonian itself. The tension between the two has never been more delicious or more addictive, and both lead actors knock their roles absolutely out of the park.

But while the relationship between Booth and Brennan becomes increasingly more complex, the wonderful supporting cast of engaging characters at the Jeffersonian keep the show moving along briskly and lightly.

I absolutely love this show. It might be the most amazingly well-crafted t.v. show ever, along many dimensions. I agree with all of the positive comments of other reviewers. I don't have one negative comment to make, even though, I, too, miss Zach and thought he was a terrific character, well-acted. I even think the Daisy character provides an important role in the balance of the cast, as long as she is not there all the time. No show is complete without little jabs from a distracting annoyance. (Remember Eddie Haskell on "Leave it to Beaver?")
On the other hand, EVERY review that I read left out what, to me, may be the most important dimension of the show. The unspeakable gore and horrifying plots would be meaningless and perhaps sadistic if regarded as entertainment alone. The scientists, each using his or her unique area of expertise, employ the most subtle of clues to recreate an individual's identity and dignity. In addition, often the victim's family and friends are able to obtain closure on the person's disappearance and death. It is a story with a noble theme.
The acting, the characters, the group and individual dynamics, the continuing subplots, and the humor are absolutely extraordinary. Those attributes would be seriously compromised almost to the point of superficiality, however, without the serious outcome of the lab's work. The lab's skill and commitment provide the viewer with the powerful experience of redemption as the horror becomes gradually transformed into dignity. To me, that element is the absolute core of the series. Everything else is built around it.

I can't wait until Season 5 is available and until Season 6 begins.

Format: DVD
Five years on, the episode after episode inability of Booth and Bones to come together as other than crime partners is wearing thin. The first four seasons were highly comedic and capitalized on Bones's and Booth's relationship as a crime fighting duo who were also reluctantly attracted to one another. However, this season, they are a mess over one another. He is clearly and unequivocally in love. She is also in love but is scared to death of ever acting on it. This conflict occurs in every single episode.

I frankly think to break this impasse it would be better to marry them off and then have the comedic friction come from their problems as a Nick and Nora Charles type couple ("The Thin Man"). The unrequited love is sapping the considerable energy and magic of this show plus Bones and Booth as a comedic detective team. Fortunately, the development of Hodkins and Angela is a lot more satisfying for the viewer. We also have another wonderful guest appearance by Stephen Fry as Gordon Gordon, psychiatrist turned chef.

The "X Files" developed the same unrequited problem as it continued and it took 9 seasons to bring Mulder and Scully together. Yes, I kept watching and will keep watching this show for the very same reason, i.e. the episodes week to week make it worth it. The forensic cases week after week, the interaction of the full cast, the comedy involving the full cast, all of this makes it worth while watching week after week. But the unrequited love over nine seasons made the final few seasons of the "X files" barely watchable and I hope that doesn't happen here.

The fifth season set includes a lot more extras than previous seasons: three featurettes, two extended episodes, episode commentaries, a gag reel and deleted scenes. It also includes all 22 episodes of season 5.

SPOILER ALERT

The season opens with the wonderful Cindy Lauper guest starring as a psychic, which was a treat. Booth realizes his romantic feelings for Bones, though he is unable to tell her, and he battles the aftereffects of his brain surgery. Arastoo "comes out" about his fake accent, as well as describing the relationship he feels exists between Islam and science. Diedrich Bader is Andrew Hacker, Assistant Director to the FBI, who gives a wonderful performance, especially in his frequent attempts to impress Bones, who he has a hopeless crush on. We get to meet Booth's grandfather, who reveals a secret to Bones and encourages her to tell Booth "when the time is right." Zooey Deschanel (Emily Deschanel's real-life sister) guest stars as Bones' cousin in one episode. Angela and Wendell begin a relationship, though it ends pretty quickly, and a few episodes after that Angela and Hodgins finally get married (just like we knew they always would.) Cam finally begins dating, and the Grave Digger trial concludes with the Grave Digger being convicted and sent to jail.

MORE SPOILER ALERTS

The 100th episode (or episode 16 of season 5), Booth finally professes his feelings to Bones. It's also the first Bones episode that is directed by David Boreanaz. It's mostly flashback, and we get to see the first time Bones and Booth work together, but the flashbacks don't feel like filler (as a lot of flashback episodes are.) Bones declines, and their relationship stays the same, though slightly more awkward in following episodes.
