Several of the characters are named after British rock musicians: Roger Frampton (for Peter Frampton), the Bonham family (for John Bonham of Led Zeppelin) and Emerson, Lake and Palmer (for the members of the progressive rock band of that name). See more »
A member of the rowing team pronounces "coxswain" as "cock swain" (etymologically correct, but still wrong) instead of "cox'n". Usually shortened (particularly by people involved in rowing, as they are!) to "cox". See more »
Normally I love this show, but this episode was horrible, there was only one kind of bone the characters were interested in. They discarded good writing in the interest of prurience. At the end of the two part episode I agreed with Clark Edison's assessment of the characters. I think future shows should revolve around him, since he was the only one who acted like he was out of junior high. Let the rest of the cast go off and follow their hormones while we watch Clark solve forensic mysteries. There were a few good moments when Booth was interviewing the British aristocracy, but the little bit of levity couldn't sustain it when the cast acted like the most important issues were who they were lusting after at that particular moment. I watch Desperate Housewives for this kind of stuff, and they write cleverly enough to build a series around it, but the writers here can't handle it and shouldn't be trying, since Bones is supposed to be a forensic crime show with humor and a nice bit of sexual tension between the main characters, not a medley of bed hopping and juvenile games of "who 'likes' who." Wow, I hope the whole season isn't like this. The only people who could possibly empathize with the cast's behavior are too young to be watching it.
