Bones

Dr. Temperance Brennan is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute and writes novels as a sideline. When the standard methods of identifying a body are deemed useless--when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed that CSI gives up-- law enforcement calls in Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim's bones.

Fun bones Season
Verified purchase
This was a really fun Bones season, the DVD was in great shape and arrived on time. This Bones season sees the introduction of Booth's new girlfriend, Hannah, a news reporter that Booth met overseas. Caroline gathers the team back together and tries to get everyone reassembled. Bones progresses through the season and deals with Hannah's relationship with Booth. Hip hop dancer, Twitch appears in an episode and you even get to see him dance. Bones also enjoys going to Jersey Shore and tries to use all the 'lingo' she picked up on reality TV. The Gravedigger again makes an appearance, but the appearance then brings in someone from Booth's past that brings in a new line of conflict. There is a turnover in the cast as some people unexpectedly do not return. A season filled with changes, conflicts and twists and turns.

"Ipso facto Columbo Oreo"
Verified purchase
- Dr. Brennan reciting the scientist's credo with Professor Bunsen Jude the Science Dude: "We get the facts and say what's true, because that is what scientists do."

BONES supports the contention that a guy and a girl, especially if they're both hotties, cannot be friends without eventually becoming more than friends. And, yes, this applies even to someone as detached and clinical as the world's foremost forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance Brennan. It's BONES' sixth season and, as ever, the sparks fly between our two leads. How cool is that?

As we saw in the Season 5 closer, our crime-solving squints have scattered to the winds. FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth has been recalled to active military duty. Dr. Brennan is traipsing thru Indonesia in search of man's true origins. Hodgins and Angela are in France. And the heart-broken Sweets had gone on sabbatical and become a goateed piano player in some bar. It would take seven months and Dr. Cam Saroyan's dire straits at the Jeffersonian Institute to reunite the old gang. The Season Six opener ("The Mastodon in the Room") reminds us that Bones can still deliver a smackdown as she wipes the jungle floor with a crew of armed guerrilas.

Six seasons into it, BONES is still my favorite show on television. I'm still savoring that blend of police procedural, slightly futuristic forensics, terrific humor, and addictive relationship drama. I don't know how the showmakers keep coming up with interesting ways to present the icky corpse. Agent Booth and the squints from the Jeffersonian Institute take on challenging cases, whether it's a homicide victim found in a giant chocolate bar ("The Babe in the Bar") or one mauled by the mythical chupacabra ("The Truth in the Myth") or one grounded up in the pin setting machine of a bowling alley ("The Change in the Game") or melted into the dashboard of an exploded truck ("The Twisted Bones in the Melted Truck").

There are several pivotal episodes. In "The Mastodon in the Room," Booth confesses to Brennan he's in love with a lovely investigative reporter he met during his recent Army tour. This new relationship dynamics would have Brennan reassessing her own feelings for Booth. In "The Doctor in the Photo," Brennan is strangely affected by a murdered cardiac surgeon who resembles Brennan in uncanny ways. This episode would also give us the half-Latin, half-gibberish phrase "Ipso facto Columbo Oreo," which I love. "The Bullet in the Brain" features the return of the Gravedigger and introduces this season's recurring big bad, a vigilante sniper from Booth's military past. In the bottle episode "The Blackout in the Blizzard" a blizzard cuts off power city-wide and confines Booth and Brennan in an elevator and the squints at the lab while still having to investigate a case involving a potential viral outbreak. "The Hole in the Heart" offers the resolution (for now) of Booth's pursuit of the vigilante sniper. "The Change in the Game" is the season finale and drops one of those awesome reveals that makes you go "What the what?!!" Meanwhile, "The Signs in the Silence" may be the most emotional, tearjerky episode of this season as the squints attempt to dig into the past of an abused deaf/mute teenaged girl who may have committed a fatal stabbing.

Less pivotal but very fun are "The Shallow in the Deep," which has Booth, Bones, and Sweets ending up on a cougar cruise while following leads to a murder, and "The Body in the Bounty" guest-stars David Alan Grier as the "amazing" Professor Bunsen Jude "The Science Dude" who asks Bones to go on his kid's television science show if he acquits himself well as the intern in her current case. Speaking of which, the oddball cast of rotating "squinterns" is back, and it's neat that the show's writers have given them even more back story. I also appreciated that Booth's new girlfriend, Hannah, is treated as a believable character instead of, say, being stereotyped as the predictable witch. I like that Hannah and Bones - and, for that matter, Hannah and Booth's young son - are good friends.

In Emily Deschanel's hands, Dr. Temperance Brennan continues to be a wonderful character. Bones is still socially awkward, still unfailingly blunt, is at all times literal. But she's still trying. And she's progressed far enough that she's even trying to crack jokes (bad jokes, excruciatingly unfunny jokes, but that's not the point). Deschanel allows you to see the painful vulnerability in Bones and the heart beneath the icy, abrasive surface. Deschanel and Boreanaz's chemistry continues to be unbeatable. For those who've been keening for progress in the "Will they, won't they?" department, several episodes address this concern.

Six discs to this complete Season 6 Collection containing all 23 episodes. Bonus stuff as follows:

- Audio Commentary on 2 episodes: "The Doctor in the Photo" (with Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and Jan Toynton) and "The Blackout in the Blizzard" (with David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel)
- Two Extended Episodes ("The Daredevil in the Mold" & "The Bikini in the Soup")
- "Breaking Down: The Blackout in the Blizzard," an episode directed by David Boreanaz (00:08:12 minutes long)
- The Visual Effects of BONES (00:11:39 minutes)
- Gag Reel (00:04:23 minutes)
- THE KILLING pilot episode

A Little Cheated
Verified purchase
I love Bones. I've loved it from the beginning, when Brennan was closer to a robot than a human being and Booth was appalled by almost everything she said. I loved watching their feelings develop. Booth & Brennan are masters of those long, intense stares. The ones that have the audience holding their collective breath, wondering when and how they're finally going to get together.

That's my one problem with Season 6. After SIX ENTIRE SEASONS of building up to Booth and Brennan finally overcoming their fear and trusting each other enough to be together, all we see is some hand-holding and tears. Brennan sits on Booth's bed to be comforted, he holds her, END SCENE. Not even so much as a single passionate kiss after all of the anticipation and WILL THEY WON'T THEY drama.I would have liked a little more confirmation that they did in fact have sex. Instead, we're left with Brennan smiling mysteriously at Angela, which is just annoying. She doesn't even SAY, "Yes, we did, it was awesome thanks." She just smiles.

And, in the final episode of the season, I admit I expected some obvious affection/sign that they were actually together. We didn't get that, either. At the very end we get confirmation that they had sex by way of Brennan telling Booth that she's pregnant with his child. Which is great, BUT STILL. Not even so much as a peck on the lips!

I guess I feel a little cheated after so much chemistry and the long process of watching them fall in love; it would have been nice to see some smooches.

Consistant quality, building on 4th and 5th seasons.
Verified purchase
I have to walk very delicately with what I say about the episodes in this season, since the last two episodes bring an end to a very long ark, which has had its ups and downs since season 1. If you have seen season six, you know of the cliff hanger, which had five of the six team members travelling to far flung corners of the world, for a year. In the hiatus between seasons, the Jeffersonian Medico-Legal Laboratory is transformed into an exhibit for a mastodon, and the one member remaining behind, Camille Saroyan, gets into a jam, and is about to be fired (for no good reason). Our favorite federal prosecutor, Caroline Julian, brings all the team members back to save Cam's bacon.

Honestly, I think the rotating "squinterns" replacing Zach Addy may just be a bit better than the multi-talented Zach himself (but it would be keen to see him again, maybe once a season, the way Ryan O'Neal is brought back for 1 or 2 episodes per season. The longest arc in the season is Booth's new girlfriend, Hannah, which puts a chill on the possible romantic relation between Booth and Brennan. (This is a technique used before, in the second season, when Brennan hooked up with Booth's FBI colleague, Scully.)

Overall, the season does a lot to pump up Booth's capabilities as a sniper. In passing, we get the sense that Booth, like Ian Edgerton in the Numb3rs series, is one of the best snipers in the Bureau, if not in the world. He proves that at least once in this season.

One thing which distinguishes this season from others is that it has a spin-off episode, which never resulted in a series. Virtually all the episodes were up to the standard of the previous season, and the main story arcs did good service in advancing the overall theme of the series.

Started strong and finished with a surprise
Verified purchase
The sixth season of Bones pretty much picked up where the others left of.

It has some interesting forensic puzzles that continue to build an esoteric forensic pathology knowledge with the viewer as it builds on the caracters developed in previous years.

The strong point of this TV series is the cameraderie and interpersonal relations built up around the core "team" and this comes in for some investigation here. Acurate investigation is the best way to describe it, the screenwriters are to be congratulated. The new phrase "squinterns' was coined and brought a smile.
This comes to a head when one of the team is lost to a psychopath who simply "got the wrong target".

The up-down, On-off relationship of the principles builds to a completely unforeseen crescendo ending with a veritable thunderclap and until the sound hits, you don't realize for the most part that anything's comming at all.

If you've bought the series before, this will definately NOT dissapoint.
If you're considering it for the first time, I'd strongly suggest starting with the first series and working your way through, as I bet most people who enjoy this genere would find they had to buy the whole set.

Season six, and I'm surprised its still so entertaining, dynamic and vibrant, I look forward eagerly to season seven.

Bones at Her Best (oh yeah, Booth too)
Verified purchase
This series continues to get better all the time as the characters come together and form an intensely loyal and devoted crew of "squints" (all the scientists of the Jeffersonian) and FBI agents (primarily our honor-filled and trustworthy Booth). The writer's continue to create their signature "messy messes with mangled body parts" that still brings a cringe to your expression on occasion.

In this season, Bones and the Jeffersonian suffer a horrible, heart wrenching loss which sends the profoundly lost and confused Bones to Booth's apartment late the night of the loss. Her trip forever changes the relationship she shares with Booth. Changes that can't help but spill into season 7.

I would recommend this show to those who like crime drama spiced with humor; also to those who like science. There's a lot of science explained on the show -- I have been able to answer 3 tough Jeopardy questions just because I watch Bones! :-) :-)
I would recommend this show to people who like a good ensemble cast and multiple sub-stories going on. The supporting cast is tremendous. The show has a huge talent pool within it's wall.s

Give this show a try!

A series I like to have on file
Verified purchase
When BONES first started out, I admit I was HIGHLY skeptical. I was a fan of Kathy Reich's books and lets face it, Emily looks nothing like the character. She seemed too glamorous and elegant! And the setting was out of whack, not at all like the books. But I quickly became a fan! The ensemble cast works well together and seems to me to be friends, which adds to the cachet. I like it that one time characters ended up a semi permanent part of the story line, reappearing often. And I found Temperance's quirks endearing...I've done the manuscript work for PHD's and know how they can be! That she is so beautiful and glamorous and has these single minded quirks makes her fun to watch. The other characters story lines are developed so watching a show is like catching up with a bunch of friends, but with a good story thrown in as well. I've gotten every one of the series, and when I can no longer see it on tv, I'll have it to revist again and again. I'm not fond of many of the 'hot' programs and tend to buy up series I like so I can go back and enjoy them (LIFE and LOST being two in question). It takes something special to make me not want to do something else on the night a tv program is on no matter if I can HULU it or not later. BONES does that.

The Sign of a Great Episode!
Verified purchase
This episode gets us back to what has made this show such a winner for the past 6 years, a masterful combination of compelling characterizations, a unique mystery to solve, and a great ensemble working together to make us laugh, make us cry, and give us a great story to enjoy! The old Booth and Bones romantic chemistry is re-growing, and all is right in the world. Starting with a silent witness unable to tell her story, a mysterious young teenage deaf girl, also unable to communicate verbally, the team must find the victim, identify the murderer, and figure out the young girl's identity and where she comes from. Dr. Brennan, the brilliant but socially challenged forensic anthropologist, Special FBI Agent, Seeley Booth, and their team have few clues to go on and the sole witness is unable and unwilling to share her story. They are not only able to do solve the crime, but they uncover and solve the mystery of the young woman's origins. We also see more of the back story of Booth and Brennan, moving them closer to the closing climax of Season 6 of this quirky, dark, but humorous and romantic criminal investigative series.
