Clinton (as BJ Britt)
Frankie Costello (as Joey Russo)


When Booth and Brennan are called to investigate decomposed remains found at the Jersey Shore, the team IDs the victim as Richie "The V" Genaro, a 23-year-old who partied the night before at a popular nightclub. Booth and Brennan question Genaro's peers including self proclaimed girlfriend Marie Galasso and the club bouncer, and Brennan surprisingly proves her pop culture savvy and anthropological expertise after watching what she believes to be a documentary on the inhabitants of the Jersey Shore, but was in actuality a reality show set there. Meanwhile, at the lab, the team grows fond of Booth's girlfriend, Hannah, and Angela tries to keep her pregnancy a secret Written by Fox Publicity

Did You Know?


Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: I've been studying their culture, language and customs. The Guido tribe is fascinating.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Wait, is it all right to call them that?
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: A tribe? Yes.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: No, no, no. I mean, I don't think it's all right to call them Guidos.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Oh, and the Guidos' dance rituals, tattoos, speech patterns, secret lexicons and ornate costumes are obvious markers.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: They're dumbass kids.
Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: Yes. The avid focus on mating suggests a kind of protracted adolescence. Kids and dumbass refer to their... determined resistance to maturity.

The One At The Jersey Shore...
29 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's pretty much the writers of Bones making fun of the Jersey Shore. It's okay though, I love the inside jokes.

In this episode, Bones and Booth are sent to the Jersey Shore to investigate the murder of Guido. They identity him as Richie "The V" Genaro. A partier. Just living life down at the Jersey Shore. It's really funny and sad to see everyones reactions to the fact that Richie is dead. And the people from the Jersey Shore. Too much make up and too many hair extensions. And too many tans. Just too much of everything, pretty much.

I love when Bones becomes very interested in the Jersey Shore culture. Thinking they're like their a whole different species.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10.
