Fan Columnist: How to Survive the 'Bones' Hiatus

I know, like me, you must still be reeling over the fact that there will be no new Bones episodes until November 5, but I beseech you to try your best to cope during this hard time. For it is in fact during a tragedy like this that we must all band together in order to get past the pain and anguish we feel in our hearts. There are 13 long days until the return of Booth and Bones, but we must not dwell on this. Let's focus on the positive and keep ourselves occupied for the remainder of this time. I have listed five excellent ways for you to survive this treacherous Bones hiatus. * Watch reruns of Bones on TNT : You can catch Bones on TNT almost every weekday at 7 and 8pm. The schedule tends to change rather inconsistently, so I urge you to go to their website and double check. If we're lucky, one day they will have back-to-back-to-back Bones episodes! Season 1 just started up again. Isn't it funny to see how much everyone has changed? * Re-watch episodes from Season 5: OK, so maybe you're not like me, and you don't like to re-watch episodes over and over again, but who doesn't like the amazing Booth and Bones moments from this season? I mean come on. Booth and Bones said I love you to each other...if only in a "professional kind of way." You can check watch them here. * Get Bones Season 4 on DVD: Like the commercial says, this is "the season that changed everything." If you don't have it already, I strongly encourage you to go and get it. Aside from every episode, it has deleted scenes, a feature about the Squints, and my personal favorite, a gag reel. * Continue to check here for news and spoilers: I often find this the best way to cope with the hiatus of any show. During a long break, it's always nice to hear some good news. For instance, did you hear that Zooey Deschanel will be making a guest appearance on Bones as Brennan's cousin later on this season? I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the lovely Deschanel sisters together on the same screen. * Breathe: This might seem like the strangest suggestion ever, but trust me, it really does work. It has been scientifically proven to help lower your stress level, but, most importantly, it helps you to not harbor any hatred toward Fox or Major League Baseball. Personally, this is just one more reason why I don't like baseball, but, since it is America's pastime, I guess I'll have to accept it. Source Here

Zooey Deschanel to Guest Star on 'Bones'

Exciting news for Bones and Deschanel fans! Zooey Deschanel, Emily's talented and equally adorable sister will finally be answering our prayers and guest starring along side her big sister. Emily has long hoped her sister would someday join her as a guest star on Bones, and it looks like she's finally getting her wish. David Boreanaz spilled the news to E! Online saying, "I do know that Emily's sister is going to be on the next episode, which is exciting." Considering even the talented writers at Bones couldn't write away the sister's familial similarities, Zooey will be playing Temperance Brennan's cousin. According to Boreanaz, "I think she's going to play Emily's cousin. It's a whole relationship thing that's going on now with us and it continues to grow and grow and get crazy." As a Bones and Zooey fan I can't wait to see her step into The Jeffersonian and to see the sister's interact together. Hopefully Zooey won't be playing the role of man-eating cousin, now that we have a chance at Booth and Bones, the only thing that would make me hate a Zooey guest appearance is if she ruins that chance. On the other hand, at least Booth would finally make out with a Deschanel sister outside of a coma induced dream. Source Here

"The Tough Man in the Tender Chicken", the new episode of " Bones " will find Booth and Brennan in the middle of PETA activists.

According to the casting sides, there's this character named Gina McNamara whose job is to clip off chicken beaks. It just so happens that the tool she uses to pluck is used to remove Scott Rabin's, the victim, thumbs and big toes.

Video Interview: David Boreanaz of 'Bones'

Sitting across from Bones ' David Boreanaz is a bit like sitting across from Adonis. The man is ridiculously (sweaty palm inducing) handsome and he answers questions with a booming baritone that at times makes it difficult to separate him from his iconic characters. Needless to say, it's a wee bit intimidating. But then peeking from his blue jeans, you see a flash of loud, somewhat obnoxious orange striped socks. Socks that Seeley Booth might deem too garish to wear. It's then that you realize the details that make Boreanaz's iconic characters so human, quirky, and relatable are drawn from the man itself. A fact which Boreanaz quickly confirmed saying, "I am the inspiration for every quirk you see on Booth." And appraently some so over the top they won't even show on Bones. It's this kind of personal connection that Boreanaz has to Seeley Booth that makes him such a compelling character and Boreanaz such an enjoyable actor to watch. Just like his warm off-screen relationship with co-star Emily Deschanel, that translates so richly into capitivating on-screen chemistry. The success of Booth and Bones seems to come from details that can't be drawn from thin air and connections that can't be faked. Watch my entire interview with Boreanaz, where we discuss season 5 of Bones, the possibilty of a Booth/Bones romance, if he could ever imagine doing Booth's job, and much more. Source & Video

Bones Shuts Down Production Due to Boreanaz's Flu - Featured

Bones shut down production on Monday because David Boreanaz came down with the flu. Executive producer Hart Hanson jokingly implied that swine flu was to blame for the 40-year-old Boreanaz's absence. "First time in Bones history we are shut down from production," Hanson tweeted. "Damn swine flu! That's gonna cut into Christmas hiatus." Boreanaz called in sick on Monday, but with nothing more than a seasonal flu, a studio rep tells "We expect him back tomorrow," Hanson later tweeted. Source Here

Video Interview: Emily Deschanel of 'Bones'

Sitting across from Emily Deschanel, it's difficult to remember you're not about to be analyzed by the cold logic of Dr. Temperance Brennan. With the same piercing blue eyes that have captivated Seeley Booth and seen through the lies of countless criminals Deschanel, to a fan like me, IS Temperance Brennan. But sitting down with the actress for a few minutes and sharing easy laughs and conversation well outside of Bones ' comfort level, you realize Temperance Brennan is just an incredibly well-crafted character portrayed to perfection by a talented actress. In fact, Deschanel says she has little in common with the character she's so expertly brought to life. Deschanel and I chatted about the exciting adventures awaiting Booth and Bones this season, including a little something about tonight's Rumspringa episode and what it was like working with Cyndi Lauper after she "butchered" one of her songs in a previous season. Of course, I asked her all about her thoughts on the Booth/Bones romance and if she's as excited for the possibilities between the two as we fans are. Deschanel even joked around about how she and David Boreanaz envision the pair's happy ending, "We're in the rain, we run together in the rain..." Source & Video

'Bones' Creator Explains Why a Crossover with 'Lie to Me' Would Be Worth Watching

For some time now, Fox has been reportedly toying the idea of staging an episode that would find Bones ' Booth and Brennan working on a case with Lie to Me 's Doc Lightman, though a couple of months ago, an insider cautioned that "it's in the very early stages and may not even happen." Sorry to disappoint fans but there's nothing official to report at this point. On the other hand, Bones series creator Hart Hanson maintains that the idea is still on the table and he's is certainly up for it. "We have our own human lie detector in Sweets, so I think that would be a lot of fun," Hanson told Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello. "It would be fun to have Gordon [Stephen Fry] there, too, and watch Stephen and Tim Roth face off." Past crossovers have not been successful for some shows so, understandably, not everyone is keen on watching a Bones and Lie to Me crossover. But Hanson has another interesting reason for bringing in Tom Roth's Lightman--- one that would probably pique viewers' interest as early as now. Apparently, Hanson is thinking that Lightman "could look at Booth and Brennan and know who's lying and who isn't." I bet that would really be a fun episode to watch considering that the fifth season of Bones is all about toying with Booth and Brennan's emotions. Source Here

Bones: Preview of Episode 5.3 "The Plain in the Prodigy"

After a leaky pipe, some money issues and a few sweet moments, Bones returns for its third episode this season to explore another case, and perhaps to tickle our imagination with yet another Booth and Brennan moment. Tonight Booth and Brennan go back in time to investigate the murder of a musical prodigy. No, it's not one of those flashback specials but "The Plain in the Prodigy" does take our dynamic duo to a place where tradition and simple living are of importance. The case begins when human remains are found alongside the railroad, and Brennan and Booth are called to investigate. Sooner or later, they find out that the bones belong to Levi Yoder, a member of the Amish community who disappeared roughly two months prior to his Rumspringa. A quick Google search explains Rumspringa as a period of adolescence for some members of the Amish that begins around the age of sixteen and ends when a youth chooses baptism within the Amish church or instead leaves the community. In other words, it's sort of like an exploration of the outside world. To get to the bottom of the mystery, Brennan and Booth travel to an Amish community where they are forced to become accustomed to their way of life and resist modern conveniences. In due course, they discover that Levi was a piano prodigy, and their search leads them to believe that his unusual talent may have played a part in his untimely death. Meanwhile, Cam is coping with the stress that comes from being a new parent and it looks like she's about to have a minor meltdown after dealing with prom dates and other teenage issues with stepdaughter Michelle (Tiffany Hines). Luckily, Booth steps up to help Michelle in line. Source & Preview
