That said, the chemistry between Boreanaz and Deschanel remains as engaging as ever, and the humor (dark and morbid as it sometimes is) helps to keep the series fresh and well worth watching on the whole.
I think the stories are still compelling and interesting enough to keep the show fun to watch. It does a good job of blending the case of the week stories with the ongoing story arcs. The main antagonist this season continues to be Pelant. The storyline from the last season which resulted in the end of the season cliffhanger is resolved quickly in Season 8. Pelant however keeps coming back throughout the season to make the lives of the team hell.
The show has kept the rotating interns that stemmed from the one story line from the show whose outcome I did not like, and that was having Zach written off the show. The show does a good job of actually giving them more to do that just being Brennan's sidekicks and it seems like the show is going to stick with that format for the foreseeable future.
Aside from the stretches that the show makes with reality which you either accept or not, the only thing that was completely unrealistic from this season was about Hodgins money. You have to suspend your disbelief for what happens initially, but I personally think the directon the show takes the aftermath is just dumb.
The rest of the season really revolves around Booth and Brennan as a couple, and as parents. I think that part of the story is well written and has done a good job of not making the relationship stale which is always the danger in bringing lead characters into a relationship.
For those who get the blu ray set, there are deleted scenes and commentary on some episodes, an "Ask Bones" feature where cast members answer questions submitted by fans, a short ultimate fan segment and a gag reel. Not a ton of extras but enough there if you do like going through that material. Also, the blu rays allow you to play it in season mode, so you can stop at any point and pick back up where you left off.
The cast members are all good actors and that makes it more fun to watch; the writing is consistently good; the plots are interesting, locations vary from the beautiful to the mundane urban areas that are supposed to be Washington, DC Metropolitan. Once in a while you can spot something that is out of character, for example: in some stories Agent Booth is a reserve officer, while in others he is an enlisted man. So, he either gets promoted or demoted from season to season. Nevertheless, I enjoy the show and am sure yuou will, too.
