BONES keeps on keeping on. Two excellent seasons under its belt, and a truncated Season 3 (damn you, writers' strike!) finally all wrapped up, and predictably, these are good episodes, as well. But only fifteen of them! As Season 3's first episode ("The Widow's Son in the Windshield") opens up, we learn that Bones has been reluctant to go in the field with Booth and she won't say why. However, a head flung off a bridge forces her to reconnect with Booth. This episode also begins a new serial killer arc, this one being particularly even more gristly and diabolical than most, and of which resolution later down the season would have tragic consequences.
Season 3 doles out several other subplots. As per the startling news learned at the altar from Season 2's finale, Angela is already married. An ongoing story arc becomes Hodgins and Angela's search for her long-time but vaguely remembered husband. "The Secret of the Soil" introduces Dr. Sweets, a 22 year old psychotherapist assigned to counsel Bones and Booth, this stemming from the FBI's concern due to Booth having arrested Bones' father. These sessions are generally funny stuff as, mostly, Booth can't help but treat Sweets like a kid. Plus, these scenes tend to open things up even more between Bones and Booth.
I've a couple of Season 3 favorites. "The Widow's Son in the Windshield" introduces the cannibalistic Gormogon killer, which would become a key ongoing story arc of the season. "Mummy in the Maze" is a very neat Halloween show, wherein Booth's shameful phobia is unveiled and Bones's costume is...simply awesome. "The Knight on the Grid" is a taut thriller as the Gormagon killer returns, this time with a personal vendetta against Bones and Booth.Read more ›
Just released is BONES SEASON THREE: TOTALLY DECOMPOSED EDITION. How can it be that this show has been on that long already? For those unfamiliar with the show its time to catch up.
Based on the real life of forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, the story revolves around Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel), a forensic specialist who works at the Jeffersonian in Washington, D.C. When the FBI comes calling for assistance in the form of Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz), Temperance takes to field work like a pro with an intense interest in each case presented.
Along with Temperance, known as Bones to Booth, are a team of equally dedicated professionals at the Institute. Among them are Angela (Michaela Conlin) who specializes in facial and body reconstruction via sketches and computer software, Dr. Jack Hodgins (TJ Thynes) who specializes in organic materials and Dr. Zack Addy (Eric Milligan) who knows more about bones than, well, Bones. Each member of the team adds to a complete whole not only in their expertise but in their character functions as well.
For the first two seasons we were allowed to explore the world of the "squints", Booth's nickname for the intelligent research team at the Institute. But as the show continued, we watched as Booth came to appreciate each individual in their own way. We also watched the sexual tension between Booth and Bones grow in the most subtle of ways as they worked case after case together.Read more ›
Bones is not your typical self-serious procedural. While the show certainly has some serious moments and a few darker story arcs, it's brimming over with warmth, wit and fun. In contrast to the often flat and underdeveloped characters you find on many crime shows, Bones' characters are unusually vibrant and well-defined. Those who love romance will get their share of it here (and I was very happily surprised by how well done most of the romantic stuff is handled, by the way!), but there's also an emphasis on friendship and familial relationships. And, speaking of family, you know how a lot of crime dramas try to tell you that the team is like a family even though they often seem more like just vaguely friendly coworkers?! Well, in this case this group of endearingly quirky, lovable but amusingly and relatably flawed characters really DOES feel like a de facto family, in part because some of them wouldn't fit in too well elsewhere :)
The show unashamedly celebrates a passion for learning and discovery, depicting "nerdiness" with affection and admiration rather than derision. We're treated to tons of interesting information about anthropology, science, criminal psychology, and a whole lot more. As a lifelong mystery fanatic, I have to say that most of the cases are surprisingly engaging and compelling. Despite the interesting high tech forensics, this show is really an old-fashioned 'whodunit' at heart.
The actors seem perfectly cast for their roles and bring a genuine energy and enthusiasm for the work that comes through on screen.Read more ›
