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. Lance Sweets: The guy literally fought off coyotes to get the skull back. That's awesome.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Coyotes, they just run away if you yell at them.
Dr. Lance Sweets: I know. Still. To face a pack of wild animals alone...
Special Agent Seeley Booth: I'm sure you could just bore them to death with your shrinky talk.
Dr. Lance Sweets: And I'm sure you could just break their hearts with your mean... mean words.

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.
