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.
