In the opening scene, the farmer sees a corpse lying sternum-up on the ground in front of his tractor. When the tractor rolls over the corpse, the tines pierce the body and roll it up to display the corpse sternum-up on the machinery. If the tines pierced the body front-to-back, when it rolled around the wheel it should have been presented to the camera spine-up, not sternum-up. See more »


Dr. Oliver Wells: [Examining the remains] Lack of cut marks on the gonial angle of the mandible, underside of the chin and cervical vertebrae leave me no reason to suspect that this skull was removed by anything other than the coyotes.
Dr. Jack Hodgins: Soooo, not a zombie.

Not your finest hour
26 February 2013 | by e_clagerlofSee all my reviews

Really? An egotistical, rude, elf-promoting, demeaning jerk was the very best you could do?? Nowhere near being on par with Zack, Wendell, Finn, Clark, Daisy or the late Nigel-Murray. Bones' brilliance, lack of great social skills and occasional brusqueness combine to make her charming, complex, and entertaining, the same does not hold true for the new intern - he just comes across as unlikable. While bringing in a new intern helps keep the story fresh yet stable, some thought needs to given to that new character. Hopefully adding this was a one-time mistake and not a continuing annoyance as I don't really want to delete 'Bones' from my 'gotta-watch' list.
