Product Description

After a much-needed break, forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) return to the Jeffersonian Institute, along with their team of investigative "squints," for another darkly humorous season of murder, mystery, controversy and chemistry. In addition to a vast array of personal crises, ranging from Angela's secret pregnancy to Booth's new relationship with a beautiful reporter, the team tackles a complex caseload of gruesome crimes that includes facing a murderous Chupacabra, a trip to the Jersey Shore, the final return of the Gravedigger, and a vigilante sniper with a deadly link to Booth's past.

The opening moments of Bones's sixth season finds its main characters Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI agent Booth (David Boreanaz) separated by extreme distances, before being awkwardly reunited to aid a colleague. As far as metaphors go, it's a rather fitting one for a show that fumbles a bit with the established formula, before regaining its winning mix of light office banter and extremely grody crime scenes. (For the squeamish, said gnarly moments this time around include some steroid-juiced super maggots, a splattery bowling alley scenario straight out of a pre-censorship Tales from the Crypt comic, and an exploding head that puts David Cronenberg's notorious Scanners to shame.) Picking up seven months after the previous season, these 23 episodes find the team uneasily attempting to regain their chemistry within the Jeffersonian Museum, a task made especially difficult by the appearance of Booth's new girlfriend (Katheryn Winnick), an ambitious war reporter whose presence throws Dr. Brennan into unfamiliar emotional territory. Promising as such a shakeup is in theory, however, it proves awkward in practice, with the entertainingly implacable self-assurance of Deschanel's character tipping over into outright arrogance. Once the status quo is regained in the second half of the season, though, Bones really starts to regain its cruising speed, balancing out some nicely goofy one-offs (look out for the Chupacabra!) with the overarching storylines, which include an unexpected development in the marriage between Angela (Michaela Conlin) and Dr. Hodgins (T.J. Thyne), and a recurring threat from a vengeful sniper, all culminating in a reveal that promises to permanently alter the relationship of the lead characters. While not without its missteps--most notably an awkward backdoor pilot for the short-lived spinoff The Finder--there are ultimately enough solid moments here to ensure that fans will stay tuned. When a show can follow up a screamingly gross candy-factory mishap with an understated Oompa-Loompa reference, it's a sign that things are back to firing on all cylinders. --Andrew Wright

And so as not to spoil anyone, the finale did a great deal to restore my faith in the series as did the episode prior, "Hole In The Heart".

While I admit I am a 'shipper for Bones and Booth, plot-device Hannah was *possibly* needed (trying to be positive and give the benefit of the doubt here!) to give Bones and Booth an emotional kick in the butt to see what - or more likely, who - is right in front of their faces. But I won't lie: I was relieved when she left...and David Boreanaz's performance after Hannah's rejection gets major kudos from me. But fate had other plans, in the form of a tragic event with one of the squints and the aftermath that led straight to the finale.

And the supporting cast and their stories - most especially, Angela/Hodgins and the birth of their baby - also helped to add to the good and blur the bad, for me.

It will be most interesting to see where the final few minutes of the finale takes us for Season 7. In any case, thanks to the upswing, I have pre-ordered this season's DVD set.

Because, for me, even Season 6 "Bones" is better than most of the reality crap and other shows on TV now.

But it will be a long wait 'til November 3rd's premiere! So the DVD set should nicely fill the longer gap (due to baseball and Emily Deschanel's pregnancy!).

Update (07/11/11): Though Amazon does not yet have the date, says the set - on both DVD and Blu-Ray - will be released on October 4, 2011 (with a very tiny sneak peek of the possible cover art)!

Update #2 (08/10/11): The finalized date per is for October 11th. You can see all details there.

- Dr. Brennan reciting the scientist's credo with Professor Bunsen Jude the Science Dude: "We get the facts and say what's true, because that is what scientists do."

BONES supports the contention that a guy and a girl, especially if they're both hotties, cannot be friends without eventually becoming more than friends. And, yes, this applies even to someone as detached and clinical as the world's foremost forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance Brennan. It's BONES' sixth season and, as ever, the sparks fly between our two leads. How cool is that?

As we saw in the Season 5 closer, our crime-solving squints have scattered to the winds. FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth has been recalled to active military duty. Dr. Brennan is traipsing thru Indonesia in search of man's true origins. Hodgins and Angela are in France. And the heart-broken Sweets had gone on sabbatical and become a goateed piano player in some bar. It would take seven months and Dr. Cam Saroyan's dire straits at the Jeffersonian Institute to reunite the old gang. The Season Six opener ("The Mastodon in the Room") reminds us that Bones can still deliver a smackdown as she wipes the jungle floor with a crew of armed guerrilas.

Six seasons into it, BONES is still my favorite show on television. I'm still savoring that blend of police procedural, slightly futuristic forensics, terrific humor, and addictive relationship drama. I don't know how the showmakers keep coming up with interesting ways to present the icky corpse.

Season six was a mixed bag for me at one point. It started really good, but I felt that a couple of episodes towards the middle lost me a little. I am happy to say that the second half of the series returned me to being a true bones fan! We are given another fantastic season finale and a really sad plot. The one thing I did love was the character development and how all the small characters that work on the various investigation are going through their own changes. I would say this series has some of my favourite episodes. The very end of season six has left me desperate to find out what is going to happen in season seven. The story continues to evolve, the characters get better and season six was another amazon season.

I did not realize the emotional investment I had in Dr. Brennan remaining rational, logical and unfeeling. The past couple of episodes reinforced these qualities to an almost frustrating level. Well, if anyone wants to know when she is going to FEEL, watch this episode. Her path to tears must be surreal and almost a psychosis so tightly wound she has been to stay in her unemotional bubble. An introduced character plus the entire plot used to reveal her heartfelt qualities are a subtext to the overall theme: Dr. Brennan wakes up to her heart.

"A tour de force performance by Emily Deschanel as Temperance Brennan- and kudos to the writers of the episode that brings a long-awaited climax to the relationship between the two main characters. The whole focus is on Brennan as she seeks to put together the life and final moments of a gifted cardiovascular surgeon. She is guided by the voice of the dead woman herself dictating her office notes, and by the observations of a museum security guard. In the process, she is forced to confront some very painful truths about herself. It may be that I have too much Christmas on the brain, but it reminded me alot of Dickens' Christmas Carol - Temperance certainly is no Scrooge, but her emotional heart is certainly as heavily guarded as Scrooge's gold. Like Scrooge, Temperance has the only key to unlock it - no one else can do it for her. She has to work it through for herself. And - you have to give her credit, when she decides to turn the key - she does it with an honesty and courage only Temperance could produce. I am anxious to find out where the writers will take it from here.
