Trivia

Angela's full name is stated to be Angela Pearly Gates Montenegro (as heard in a much earlier episode) - except that isn't her real name. Her eccentric father gave her a name so bad she is unwilling to say it out aloud. See more »

Goofs

When Angela and Hodgsons are stopped by the sheriff, they say that they are driving north from the crime scene to deliver evidence to the lab. The crime scene is in Carroll County, which is north of D.C. They should be driving south. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Jack Hodgins: It's a little outside my expertise, but they look like bat bones to me. You missed that Clark?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Well, Clark's error is completely understandable. Given the condition of the remains, and the bizzare nature of their circumstances.
Dr. Clark Edison: Thank you Dr. Brennan.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Yeah, but I made the call on a piece-of-crap cathode ray tube while in jail.
Dr. Clark Edison: Oh, that's right. You're in jail.

A great episode, for fans of Kathy Reichs.
13 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an episode written by Kathy Reichs. Fans will know who she is, as she not only is the inspiration but the female scientist in Tempy's books also bares the same name, as homage. I don't read her books, as I already am working through many books and will start with her after all the Gemmell and Peter Morwind novels have been read. I have however read much about her, and she is basically a bloody genius! She is a certified forensic anthropologist. Dr. Reichs is one of only eighty-two forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. I mean com'on! If she doesn't know a crime scene and the workings of the lab who does?!?

I am not gonna put any spoilers. This is just information.

The script is good, with good banter which is indicative of Bones.

The plot is very good, with some truly funny moments. Though it may not be the best ever episode is is interesting to see Dr Reichs' spin on the show. Which was a little different to normal.

My only problem is that like many other episodes, this is a stand-alone ep. Though there are moments that will have ripples into the next episode, there isn't a great enemy like other seasons. Maybe they need to do another Gorgonzola type (I don't mean another one, but just a bad guy who is more than a 1 part episode, which ends up being a crime of passion or greed. Maybe something pure evil, for the joy of killing, like past ones.... also the Gorgonzola is on purpose)

All in all though worth the watch, and though the rating seems low, IMDb members can be harsh at times.
