Bones: Season 4
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The cases this season are diverse. One episode delves into the investigation of a pregnant teenage athlete's death that seems to be part of a high school "pregnancy pact," while another finds Brennan and Booth as passengers on a plane where a crisp, burnt body is discovered. And in another, Booth finds himself as the main suspect when a longtime rival is found dead. The simmering chemistry between Brennan and Booth is never lost in the intrigue. Though many TV dramas use the "will they" or "won't they" device to pique viewers' interests, that scenario usually loses momentum by the second or third season. Thanks to some smart writing and sharp acting, this conceit hasn't worn itself out yet on Bones. While the show hints that the two are destined to be together, that plot line isn't exploited this season. --Jae-Ha Kim

This is a great alternative to many of the main stream talked about crime TV series out there. This packs in realism, comedy, action, adventure, mystery, and psuedo-science all into one show with a cast that couldn't be more beautiful or enjoyable to watch week after week.
If you haven't seen any of these just buy season 1,2, & 3 you certainly won't be disappointed and it'll give you something to do while you wait for the DVD release of season 4. Also of note is that if you haven't seen season 1,2 or 3 you may be a little lost watching season 4 alone. The writers have done an excellent job maintaing continuity of the story line accross all the seasons so there will be many jokes, comments, and sub-plots that you simply won't understand without the past seasons.
Season 4 brings perhaps the quirkiest and most light-hearted year of the series yet as it begins across the pond with the fabulous duo in Britain while back at the lab the incomparable Zack is replaced by a host of fun and zany lab assistants. Season 4 introduces us to Booth's brother who shows up to throw a wrench into his personal life and eventually help him grow even closer to his maddeningly logical genius of a partner. Brennan's dad and Booth's son make appearances and the Gravedigger from Season 2 also makes a return appearance. The season's final six episodes are just mind-blowingly excellent as we see Booth and Brennan grow ever closer and even consider having a baby together!
Buying such a well-written, fun, zany and superbly acted series on DVD is a no brainer. Get your own copy because you are not borrowing mine!
- Brennan: "I don't want to be a sexy scientist!"
- Booth: "Well, that's like me saying I don't want to be a sexy FBI Agent. We can't change who we are!" And then Booth starts quoting a published review of one of her mysteries. One of those perfect throwaway moments.
World-renowned forensic anthropologist Temperance "Bones" Brennan is as brusque and tactless as ever, as confounded by the subtleties of social decorum as ever (or as Sweets exclaims: "She is wicked literal!"). Bones is still very much that intimidating icy intellect, still a wounded soul, and still solving murders. FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth is still the one with the people skills and that well-developed bump of intuition. More onions are peeled in this season as we learn even more about the underpinnings of our core characters. The absolute big draw of this show is that sizzle between David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, their fabulous interplay tantalizing and frustrating the viewers. Could this be the season that they get together? Well, kind of, sort of. Taking what the show is giving, I wallow in their ever evolving relationship.
Staying on the personal, Hodgins and Angela are trying to move past their break-up. "The Skull in the Sculpture" demonstrates that Angela is more ready to move on than Hodgins, and if you thought Angela was a free spirit before, well, now...Read more ›
Was there a specific reason these episodes were left out? If it's only because those episodes were included in a "Bonus Disc," with last season, that's extremely disappointing. That's no reason not to create a complete set. There are those of us that didn't hang on to the bonus disc, since one always expects when a season comes out, it will be complete. I wish I'd known it wasn't a complete set before I spent the money on it.
