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.

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.

I agree with Phoenix Child in almost every detail. Bones is a wonderfully crafted show that shows terrific character development and incredible plot development as well as being inspirational to viewers as a testimony to science "squints". However, I have serious irritation issues with Daisy and spend many minutes each episode missing Zach. Wendell was good in the role of assistant, but the others were annoying and Daisy was absolutely nauseating. I kept wanting to slap her into the reality of being aware of others' feelings. How can Sweets be sweet on this girl? I so hope they can figure out a way of bringing Zach back. I wait with bated breath for season six to begin!
