Did You Know?


During one of the first scenes, while Angela is doing a facial reconstruction on a skull, Cyndi Lauper's song "Fearless" is the music. This song comes from the album 'Sisters of Avalon'. 'Avalon' is the name of Lauper's character in the episode. The skull is that of Avalon's sister. See more »


Angela enlarges one frame of a video stored on a MiniDisc. From the fuzzy picture, she pulls crystal clear details such as the name of a car rental company and the license plate. This is fundamentally impossible, but also one of the most persistent goofs in movies and TV. See more »

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan: You're the one who told me never to look happy at a crime scene.

Booth in love
19 September 2009 | by ctomvelu1See all my reviews

Predictably, Booth no longer suffers from amnesia at the start of the fifth season opener. But he has mixed feelings about things, including his feeling toward Brennan, and decides he is going to pour his heart out to her. Meanhile, a psychic (Lauper) puts B&B on the trail of a mass grave, where 12 people lie slain and forgotten. Getting at the murderer proves more difficult than expected. And Booth has suspicions about the psychic. A clown plays a key role. Not exactly a gangbuster opener for the new season, but it will have to do. Let's hope things pick up. Some of the excellent supporting cast members have little to do here, unfortunately.
