Bones

Anyone else catch the season premiere of Bones? As always, Bones is excellent. I don’t generally like the police-solving mystery type shows (not even slightly a fan of Law and Order for example) and it surprises me that I like this show at all, but the whole thing is done with such a comical element that it’s fun to watch. And they are certainly not shy about throwing a surprises (just look at Zach!). But part of what’s so excellent about this show is the characters.

For those who haven’t seen the show, Bones is about socially awkward and overly logical Doctor Temperence “Bones” Brennan of the Jeffersonian working with heart of a lion (though afraid of clowns) Detective Seeley Booth to solve crimes by analyzing the bones of the victims. They work together with Angela (the facial reconstructionist), Hodgins (the secretly rich conspiracy obsessed “King of the Lab”), Camille (the head of the Forensic Department), and Sweets (the sweet, young psychologist). Each one of them is unique in their own way.

Each episode carries its own mystery to be solved along with the continuous “will they or won’t they” of Booth and Bones. By the way, Camille and Bones dated, as did Hodgins and Angela (who is bisexual). I would love to see Sweets date someone at some point, though we don’t get much of him beyond the general in-office scenes.

The season premiere carried it’s own set of questions as Booth wonders whether his feelings for Bones are real or just a remnant of his coma time after surgery. Well, considering that we all knew they were totally into each other before…

I can’t wait to see what this season has in store.

    I LOVE this show! I was a science major in college, and so I LOVE the technical humor that they throw in, too. Like Bones laughing at Booth because he doesn’t know the difference between Mass and Matter. Lol…I love it when the geeks get the punch lines (because I am one).

    I think it’s interesting that the Cyndi Lauper is the one telling Booth that he IS in love with Bones. If you remember, there is an earlier episode where Booth takes a bullet for Bones when his stalker tries to take a shot at her. Apparently he is gazing at her too admiringly while she is doing an open-mic version of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”.

    Glad to find another Bones (and Booth) lover out there!
