Storyline

Students at a make-out wood stumble over a recently dumped body, first shot and boiled. It's Franklin Curtis (54), founder of an organic supermarket chain. A pesticide indicates he met Andrew Harding, a tobacco farmer he tried to force into organic production, even flirting with his wife. Autopsy shows his skin melted with another. Meanwhile FBI psychoanalyst Sweets must examine if Booth can keep working with Bones after arresting her dad. A pineapple plant bug points to Virginia farmer Lyndon Page's hothouse, or the compost plant it uses. There works Charlie Rogan, who dated daughter Kat Curtis. The second corpse is found and identified as Emma Billings. Written by KGF Vissers

Burned
10 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A burned body stumps the team. It leads to an organic farmer, which leads to a composting landfill. This is one of those episodes that those of us not up on our organic chemistry might learn a thing or two. Turns out the body was not burned in any traditional manner, but to say more would give things away. But I will tell you that B&B almost end up in the composting landfill. It's a very big landfill. Not much more to say about this episode, however IMDb expects me to write another line or two. So what you are reading now is simply padding to get this review accepted. If you have time, go to youtube and catch the blooper reel from this show. It's pretty entertaining.
