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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
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.

Great program, with interesting characters. The double-sided discs are a bit of a pain - you never know which side is #1 and which #2. Otherwise fully satifiedPublished 21 days ago by W. F. Borman
I was attracted to it because of the title "Bones," I was expecting more anatomy ingredients in this series, but it's a very little of it.Published 1 month ago by Torolover
Can't reccommend the series. It's hard to believe Dr. Reichs lent her name to it.
Characters are terrible by comparison to the book. Dr. Read more
