Bones is a television that first aired on the FOX Network in 2005. The series is a crime drama about an unlikely pair who work together to solve crime, Booth, an FBI agent who uses his gut and instinct, and Brennan, a forensic anthropologist who uses evidence and science, to solve cases. As such, Booth and Brennan work on cases that involves bodies that are burnt, decomposed, or destroyed beyond recognition. Joining them is Brennan's forensic team from the Jeffersonian Institute. The show is partly based upon the fictional novels written by Dr. Kathy Reichs. As an overall crime drama, Bones gets two thumbs up. It is a fun show that includes drama, mystery, comedy, and action. Not to mention, it has a fairly well-rounded cast and solid storylines.
Headlining the cast are David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel. Boreanaz plays FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth. Booth is a former Army Ranger sniper who relies on his wit to solve cases. He believes it is his intuition and ability to read people that solve cases. Evidence and the scientific process mean almost nothing to him. He works for the FBI in the homicide unit trying to solve as many murder cases as possible to make up for the countless lives he took as a sniper.
Deschanel plays Dr. Temperance Brennan, who Booth affectionately calls Bones. Brennan is a forensic anthropologist who works for the Jeffersonian Institute. Her area of expertise is postmortem identification of bodies that are beyond recognition by conventional means. She is an expert martial artist and marksman. She desires to work cases from both the laboratory and the field. She lost her family when she was fifteen. To date, she is still looking for them. It is this incident that drives her to solve cases.
Overall, Bones is an exciting drama that focuses on homicide cases and dead bodies burnt, decomposed, or destroyed beyond recognition (you might not want to eat while watching this show). The series has a strong cast who works quite well individually and together, as well as solid storylines with only a tad bit too much drama. In the end, Bones makes for a compelling drama that any fan of crime dramas will enjoy.

Although I have only watched the first 10 episodes of Bones on DVD so far, I can already tell that this series is nothing like what I expected. I was a fan of Temperance Brennan from Kathy Reichs' books, but the Dr. Brennan in the show is not the Dr. Brennan from the books. I feel like the TV doc is naive and kind of pitiful, as they have made her such a brainiac that she has no idea how to relate to people and can't understand most references to popular culture. Her entire back story has changed, with no ex-husband, no daughter, no sister, no commuting between the US and Canada, and none of the other characters we met in the books.
In addition to finding a completely different and disappointing character, I also found the plot to be weak. Instead of letting Tempe and us get to meet Booth, her new FBI partner, we are just dumped into the middle of an already complex relationship between the two. We have no idea how they met and started working together. She also has a set of lab assistants who are all goofy in their own way, and we have to get to know them too in the middle of their relationship with her. I think it would have been better if she had just started working at the Jeffersonian Institute and met all of these people during the first episode so we could all get to know them together.
So anyone who was a fan of the books, don't expect this TV show to have much to do with the heroine you are familiar with, as she is nowhere to be found. The subject matter, forensic anthropology, is there as expected, but the characters are completely inventions of the television world. It is an amusing show, but nothing that special in my humble opinion.
OK, so I AM a big fan of Kathy Reichs books, and was intrigued to see what this show would be like. The addition of David Boreanaz also was a big draw, as he is a very charismatic actor(and I adored Angel!) For fans of Ms Reichs books, this is a slightly odd amalgam of Kathy herself and her main character Temperance Brennan, who on the show is also a crime author (like Ms Reichs - a top forensic anthropologist and author.)
The characters are all new, apart from Brennan's ex-husband Pete (although we only got a glimpse of him in the season premiere) plus it is set in Washington DC rather than Canada and Virginia as in the books.
Tempe herself is rather different than the book character. Emily Deschanel is fine, but rather young and headstrong compared to the book Tempe. Even in the one episode, we have seen her rushing into things quite recklessly. I guess they wanted to make her a little more dynamic for TV.
The chemistry between Brennan and Booth (Boreanaz) was pretty good from the start, although they need to handle it properly. Maybe the Mulder and Scully reference is a hint of how they might handle things. However, the crime was a little flimsy. This first episode seemed to focus far more on establishing character and tone than on plot. Probably something that will change with future episodes.
On the whole, Riechs fans can have fun being snooty and complaining about Tempe's drinking and the lack of her cat, but I thought the show had definite possibilities. I know I'm keen to see how things unfold.
I watch this series on TV, and I just had to own the DVD's. Emily Deschanel plays Dr. Temperance Brennan (Bones), a forensic anthropologist for a Smithsonian-like organization. She and her FBI partner David Boreanz (Agent Seeley Booth) find clues in the bones of murder victims, track down the killers and bring them to justice. Each episode is basically a stand-alone story; however, the clever interaction of characters continues to evolve with witty dialogue, interesting personalities and dark humor.
This is a terrific show! Starring David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, this is a great series! Inspired by Forensic Anthropologist Kathy Riechs' books, this character came to life. It shows Emily Deschanel, as the main character Temperance Brennan (Bones) (can't remember last name) who is a Forensic Anthropologist and FBI agent Selly Booth (David Boreanaz) who solve murder cases in each episode. This is a show not to miss!
