Good to see Bones: The Complete First Season is out on dvd. I've waited for this. Debuting in September 2005 on the Fox Network, Bones very quickly garnered rave reviews and amassed a loyal following. Bones is loosely inspired by real life forensic anthropologist and author Kathy Reichs. This funny, clever, sometimes gross, and totally addictive crime drama centers around forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperence Brennan (Emily Deschanel), who toils out of the Jeffersonian Institution and, on the side, writes mysteries starring her fictional heroine (and here's the twist) Kathy Reichs. Because Brennan has an almost supernatural ability to generate accurate assumptions based on her examination of the corpse's bones, she is often consulted by the FBI on difficult, seemingly unsolvable cases. She is frequently partnered by brash wiseacre FBI Special Agent Seely Booth (David Boreanaz), who seems to hold a bias against science and those who practice in that field. It's Booth who breezily saddles Brennan with the nickname "Bones." Naturally intuitive and freewheeling, Booth immediately is at odds with the clinically analytical Brennan. But, despite their personality clashes, and with the aid of Brennan's gifted and quirky colleagues, the cases do get solved.

It's no great secret that the palpable chemistry between Deschanel and Boreanaz is what actually propels the show and is what separates it from the other, more formulaic, dispassionate crime dramas. Every week, fans tune in for the leads' deliciously caustic banter more so than for the weekly dose of mystery. You see, the mystery jones can be fixed by viewing any other one of the gazillion forensic dramas so currently prevalent on the airwaves. So the mystery is basically the MacGuffin that drives the show forward.

I'm not into all of the crime dramas that have currently taken over television (aside from the fabulous Cold Case). However, I found myself thoroughly enjoying the first season of Bones, which seemed to get better with every new episode. People talk about the romantic chemistry between Agent Booth (David Boreanaz) and Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel), but personally I love the playful chemistry they have as friends. As intelligent as Dr. Brennan is, she doesn't possess a lot of people skills and is constantly being taught to appear more sympathetic and less harsh by Booth (in a kind of role reversal) and her best friend, Angela. As the season progresses, we see her opening up a little more and viewing other people as individuals rather than simply as part of the cultures she's studied. We also see the trust and friendship being built between her and Agent Booth. Though the show's subject matter is often very unpleasant, the main characters all have a certain charm that makes it very enjoyable to watch. The show also has a delightful sense of humor that I think is lacking in most of the other dramas on TV. The writing is smart and David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel are extremely likable as the two leads.

Being a person who enjoys not viewing a show on television but instead waits for it to come on dvd, I couldn't have been more pleased with this delightful show. Being a fan of David Boreanaz I thought I would give this show a try. I'm not normally a fan of crime shows but as I stated a had an interest in the cast. While I enjoyed Boreanaz in it as I knew I would I fell in love with Emily Deschanel's character. She plays one of the most interesting people on television today.

The banter that goes on between these two main characters is a joy to watch. I'll even say that the two of them may have the best chemistry on tv. Boreanaz plays tough as nails but nice guy in the inside Agent Seely Booth, and Deschanel plays Dr Temperance Brennan a forensic anthropologist. Booth who works for the FBI investigates the murders that occur and Brennan determines the cause of death and uncovers clues based on the bones.

Each episode plays as a stand alone but the character dynamics build throughout the season and really is a joy to watch. As I said I'm not a huge fan of crime dramas but if for nothing else I deeply enjoyed the cast of this excellent show. And also loved the crime aspect as it is done differently than other crime solving shows.

I highly suggest this wonderful show. If you appreciate character relationships than you will love this show.

I really enjoy this show (4.5 stars for the show), but I have some issues with this DVD release, which is why I only gave it three stars. First, it has double-sided disks. There's no justification for cheaping out with double-sided disks on a set that's selling for $42.49 (F Troop season 1 has 6 single-sided disks and sells for $11.99). They spent money to put the box in a plastic slipcase, but then cheaped out on the disks. Ugh. Second, as much as I like David Boreanaz (he's at least as enjoyable in this as he was in Buffy or Angel), he's really annoying in the audio commentary he does with Emily Deschanel. I appreciate the insight a good commentary offers into the making of a show, but unfortunately David Boreanaz acts like a smart aleck high school kid in this commentary, cracking jokes, making stupid comments, even interrupting Emily when she's trying to say something interesting. I finally gave up listening to it after 35 minutes or so.

From a technical standpoint, though, this is a very nice release. Video and sound quality are both excellent. Now, as for the show, I really like it. It's one of those shows that does a range of things well. It can be deeply touching, hilariously funny, suspenseful, action-packed, disturbing, you name it and Bones probably goes there at times and does it well (thankfully it doesn't do soap opera). Very impressive. The science is not very believable at times and the holographic stuff is a bit much, as is the notion of a forensic lab set in the middle of a room the size of a museum, but hey, it's a TV show, and it's a great set.

The casting is excellent. David Boreanaz is perfect for this role and Emily Deschanel is a joy to watch (and hear -- what a great voice).
