Did You Know?


The opening close-ups of Booth and Bones in their cars are done using rear projection, emulating the way driving scenes were commonly filmed during the 1950s due to technical limitations. See more »


The convertible driven by Bones in the opening scenes is equipped with amber turn signals. The story is set in the mid-1950s but that color was first adopted by US manufacturers in 1963. See more »

I can appreciate the attempt but just NO!
31 May 2017 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

I understand the desire to want to do something out of the ordinary for the 200th episode. I also also like that they decided to honor the noir detective genre of the past. The colors are well done, the costumes are great and the music is good.

However, it was an exercise in perseverance to get through this episode. This group of actors is good at spouting the scientific jargon that's so integral to this show and they are charming and easy to watch on a weekly basis but they don't have the talent (or the material?) to pull of this tribute episode.

If you're a completist like me, then my condolences as you watch it. If you're more of a casual Bones fan, just go with that instinct to skip this one as soon as it hits. It doesn't get any better.
