An oddly original take on the feelings and reactions that will long remain to the events on September 11th. "Bones" begins by reading a book written by the basketball coach, Phil Jackson, and decides his principles of play could apply to her team of interns in researching the back log of unknown remains. Predictably, they all start out competitive to one another until one case emotionally grabs one team member. The connections to the September 11th crash at the Pentagon sherlocks its way through a myriad of clues all the while prickling the fresh feelings for that day.

Sometimes, 9/11 is used dramatically in a hackneyed way, to elicit emotion or a sense of gravity. Not the case with this episode: the slow walk to realizing the identity of these remains and the whys of their condition alternately confuses, angers, saddens and depresses the team now determined to find out who the person belonging to the bones is. The results are stunning and tragic and genuine.

I commend "Bones" for this episode, presented so close to Veterans Day, for acknowledging the tragedy and grief associated with this unforgettable day, September 11th. A beautifully crafted episode worth the elicited good cry.

I have always enjoyed Bones. This has to be my favorite episode. It solicited many emotions about 9/11 and was beautifully and exquisitely portrayed. As a former Marine - Semper Fi - Always faithful. No man left behind. That which was lost was found. Everyone did a great job in this episode.

This show is one of the best Bones has produced, but I have to complain that I bought this video for my library and it came with commercials for the channel that airs it. What??? I shouldn't have to watch commercials on videos I bought. That is so incredibly LOW. This is my last purchase for a wonderful show on a terrible channel. It starts AND ends with commercials. If you can figure out a way to strip them out, please share.

In the past seasons, the crime investigations were generally entertaining and the personal side stories were interesting. This year the crime investigations for the most part are still fairly good but the personal side stories have become a much larger part of the show and the only word that I can think of the describe their actions is silly.

Seriously. We buy these to avoid commercials if fox continues this we will stop buying these videos. Want to test us? Keep the commercials and watch your revenue fall.

Update 4/2/2013
Since Fox has refused to stop the commercials I have cancelled this season and will not buy any more seasons of Bones. If this persists I will subsequently start cancelling / not renew all of my Fox shows. There are plenty of providers who don't put commercials in videos I pay for so I will not stand for having commercials impressed upon me.

I look forward to watching Bones every week. The show is very entertaining. I especially like that the main characters are now involved romantically but still maintain their personalities.

If you have enjoyed Bones seasons one through seven, you will love this most recent season. It is nice to see the next generation!
