Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a forensic anthropolgist who must team up with FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) to solve murder mysteries revolving around human remains.
Fabulous show! I recommend this show to everyone, it literally has everything; drama, action, comedy, intelligence, romance, and science. These characters draw you in and you feel for their situations, all while they are solving crimes and getting justice for people. I love the interpersonal interactions in this show, they are never overdone and in your face, but they are potent enough to draw you in and make you care for the characters and their relationships with each other.
Used to love this show. Now have season 9 recorded and same for first episodes of s10. Will eventually get around to watching them, but am not sure when this show stopped being about crime and relationships and started being about the writers political and social views. It would have been easy to involve these in the show naturally, but instead there are whole scenes (usually in the diner) where the conversations between the characters feel as though there are people standing behind them with prompt boards, they are just saying what they're told to, and we are being preached at. As I said, will get round to catching up with the show, but feel that the political views referenced outside of the main episode plots are really detracting from what for 71/2 seasons was a fantastic show.
This show is my favorite show of all time. Even though it is not entirely based on the books by Kathy Reichs, nothing can compare to the main characters and the supporting characters that create this amazing show.
I really liked this show when it first came on. Admittidley, I only watched it because I was a big Boreanaz fan but eventually I watched it for the show itself. Recent seasons have been though though so I'm not sure it has much life left in it.
