Product Description

Product Description

David Boreanaz (Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) stars as F.B.I. Agent Seeley Booth, who teams up with forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) to solve some of the most baffling and bizarre crimes ever. Booth depends on clues from the living, witnesses and suspects, while Brennan gathers evidence from the dead, relying on her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the bones of the victims. Their different investigative styles cause the two to frequently clash, creating an undeniable chemistry and just the right touch of dark humor. Inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs and state-of-the-art criminal investigation procedures, Bones is a compelling, cutting edge television.

A taut series filled with drama as well as great chemistry between its two lead stars, Bones is a strong addition to Fox's television lineup. Debuting in 2005 to favorable critical reviews, the series shares an audience of fans with the CSI franchise. Smartly written and well-acted, the first season of Bones focuses on the collaborations between FBI special agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel), whom Booth somewhat sarcastically nicknames "Bones." Each of the 22 episodes follows a premise well-known to regular viewers of crime dramas--a murder has been committed and a body found. The team's job is to figure out who the victim is, how he or she was killed, and how it was done; that part doesn't differ from other shows on television. What sets the show apart is the humor injected into the episodes (Boreanaz is particularly good at delivering wry lines). There's some wicked humor in the episode focusing on Brennan's attempts at dating, which is nicely offset by the horrific crimes she has to deal with. And for a show with such attractive leads, Bones doesn't make a huge point of dwelling on any possible attraction between the pair. Rather, it takes advantage of their playful bantering, which is more akin to that of bickering siblings than repressed lovers--for this season, anyhow. The series is inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and author Kathy Reichs (who stars in one of the featurettes on the four-disc set). In a nice play on art imitating reality, Kathy Reichs also is the name of the heroine in the murder mysteries that Dr. Brennan writes on the side. By the end of the season, viewers will learn enough about the characters to care, but not enough to completely understand why they are the way they are. That is an ongoing mystery. --Jae-Ha Kim

"Bones" is one of my favourite tv series. It is difficult to define it, due to the fact that it has crime, drama, mistery, and even some elements of comedy and romance. Strange, I know, but it works.

The two main characters in this series are Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Special Agent Seely Booth (David Boreanaz). Temperance Brennan is a forensic anthropologist that works at the Jeffersonian Institution, and that also happens to write whodunnits in her free time. Seely Booth works at the FBI, and used to be an Army sniper. Of course, both characters are very different, and that is probably the reason why they clash from the very first time Temperance is asked to help out in one of Booth's cases. How can an anthropologist help the FBI solve a crime? Well, the answer is in "Bones", and it is more than interesting :)

All in all, I must say that this show is extremely engaging, and that I think it is getting better with time. I believe that you are highly likely to love "Bones", if you like a good thriller that has lots of action, but that also pays attention to the interaction between the characters. I must confess that I am one of those fans of "Bones" that cannot wait for the beginning of its second season, and I am pretty sure you will eagerly wait for the same thing if you watch this dvd. Recommended!

PS1: I forgot to tell you that I don't recommend this show for children, as some crimes scenes are more than unsettling.

PS2: If any of the scriptwriters of "Bones" is reading this, I have two things to say. First, THANKS!. And secondly, wouldn't Temperance and Booth make a great couple?

I bought this box set when it was on sale only having heard vague things about this show. I was absolutely delighted with this purchase. David Boreanz had already demonstrated in Angel that he had a good dramatic range able to do action, comedy and drama. In Emily Deschanel he has found a superb partner in crime. This is really the best male/female partnership since the glory days of the x files. The partnership has different aspects being prickly, protective,respectful, affectionate and as with all the best tv relationships, hints of the romantic.

There is also a wonderful supporting cast of "squints" all with their own eccentricities and follibles. Over the course of the season the cast gells together beautifully.

What distinguishes Bones from the plethora of other murder mysteries is the relationships and the sense of humour, warmth and fun that permeates this programme. So do yourselves a favour and invest in Bones. I guarantee you will not regret it.

Bones is a dark and amusing drama series, inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs. Forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperence Brennan, who works at the Jeffersonian Institution and writes novels as a sideline, has an uncanny ability to read clues left behind in a victim's bones.

Consequently, law enforcement calls her in to assist with murder investigations when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned, or destroyed that the standard identification methods are useless.

Brennan's equally brilliant colleagues at the Jeffersonian's Medico-Legal Lab include earthy and bawdy Angela Montenegro, who's created a unique way to render an original crime scene in a three-dimensional computer image; Brennan's assistant, Zack Addy, a young prodigy whose genius IQ actually gets in the way of his finishing the several doctorates he's begun; "the bug guy", Dr. Jack Hodgins, who's an expert on insects, spores and minerals, but conspiracy is his hobby; and Brennan's boss, imposing lab director Dr. Daniel Goodman.

Brennan often finds herself teamed with Special Agent Seely Booth, a former Army sniper who mistrusts science and scientists when it comes to solving crimes. Brennan and Booth clash both professionally and personally, but they surprisingly make a good team to solve crimes they investigate together.

We absolutely LOVE Bones and decided to get the entire series and watch from the beginning, and WOW have things changed. I think it is worth it to watch this first season - and any consecutive seasons - just to see where they have been and how they got to where they are. For example, I didn't realize that Angela's character was a computer programmer.

I am looking forward to all the season's of Bones, right up to now, which, by the way, was the all time best season finale of all time! I mean, corruption to the top of the FBI! Booth and Bones being arrested! It happened 4 days ago and we are still talking about it! No way am I erasing that one off my PVR!!

Generally I'm not a fan of procedurals (shows without a continuing story, where each episode stands on it's own and is
about 'procedure'; legal, medical, etc), but this is as close to an exception as I'll get.

Give credit to excellent writing, directing and acting, and having supporting characters that are rich and really add
something to the show. When it's at it's best this can be downright terrific, bringing me to tears more than once, and
making me laugh out loud a few times too. It's sometimes very smart.

On the other hand, it only hits that level of excellence every 5th episode or so. The rest are mostly fine, (one or two
really don't work) but often you can see the twists coming a mile off, or the jokes get a little stale (e.g. Bones' complete
lack of familiarity with common cultural references is funny… for a while).

The show is at it's best when the episodes are really about the inner lives of our running characters, and not simply about
brilliantly (and inevitably) catching the bad guy/gal. Or when it's dealing with the more human side of forensics – the grief
and pain of those left behind. That's when the show moves way beyond 'clever crime of the week' status.
