Storyline

Brilliant, but socially inept, forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperence Brennan works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington DC. After consulting for him on a FBI case, she is approached by cocky yet charming Former Army Ranger turned Special Agent, Seeley Booth to help the Bureau solve crimes by identifying human remains that are too far gone for standard FBI forensic investigations. Brennan's empirical, literal view of the world causes friction with Booths emotive, instinctive attitude creating a volatile relationship. However as their case load increases the symbiotic partnership produces results and with the support of Brennan's Squint Squad, murderers, past and present should be on the look out.

Trivia

As of season twelve, only two shots in the opening title sequence have remained the same throughout the series: the opening shot of the skeleton, and the final shot of Booth and Brennan in Limbo closing a drawer full of remains. See more »

Goofs

Max Keenan/Matthew Brennan's Inmate Number is 90-A-0133. This is a New York Dept. of Corrections number. Keenan was in Federal custody, which would have given him an 8-digit numeric inmate number. Keenan was portrayed as a state inmate, but was in fact federal. Also, the 90 in his NY state number indicates Keenan had been arrested in New York in 1990, one year before abandoning his children, which was never alluded to in the series. See more »

So good that you are going to feel it in the bones
16 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

I love this show. I have to say, the pilot is not that good but keep on watching the episodes and I can assure you, you are gonna love it.

The character are really amazing and you can see them dealing with real life and their own "world of bones" at the same time. Zach is one of those character I don't really have much to say. Angie is really nice and at the same time I can't stand how she always seems to connect with the cases they are working on. To emotional. Hodgins has his own view of life and really wants to stay away from his family, so he spends most of the time at work... just like all the characters. Booth and Bones have an amazing chemistry together and exact opposites, but at the same time they are the same. Both of them, you can say, uses their work as a way to "fix" their personals issues.

About the cases, it's amazing how they always seem to solve them in the most amazing and clever ways, LOVE IT.

You have to see it.
