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

Originally, the weight they gave the victim, who was exactly like Brennan, on season six, episode nine, "The Doctor in the Photo", was twenty pounds less than the weight that aired. Emily Deschanel had read the script, and called the other producers, asking them to put the weight closer to reality. See more »

Goofs

Characters routinely refer to interstates in the D.C. area as "the 64" or "the 81". People who actually live there omit the article. They say "64" (most common) or "I 64" (less common). The use of "the" is a West Coast thing. See more »

Just Hope It Stays On the Air
14 September 2005 | by Alison107See all my reviews

I didn't expect to like it as much as I liked it. In fact, it's a sure sign of cancellation how much I like this show. I never like crime shows. My mom loves them, but I find them dull, because they're about plots not characters. This is a crime show about characters (not as good as "The Closer" -- the crime show I adored this summer -- mind you), and I enjoyed it. At times, it seemed far-fetched, and the whole Senator plot-point in the pilot seemed awful easy, but the dialogue worked, the characters intrigue me, and the chemistry is great. I expect good things from it.
