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.

Amazon.ca

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

Format: DVD
"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.

Format: DVD
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.

All the DVD's hummed in my player. Side 2 of Disk one would not play due to the copy protection. I had to make my own copy onto a blank disk just to watch it. It will be a long time before I buy copy protected discs again. At least let people who buy the discs watch them. I loved the shows when I could see them.

Format: DVD
I love "Bones" as a show, and based on the show's content alone I'd have rated this 4-stars. But the DVD product itself is horrible. For starters, it's on double-sided disks - which means those of us who have multi-disk DVD players can't just watch the whole season straight, but have to flip the disk after every 4 episodes. On the flip side of the disk is often only 1 episode and some bonus features. I wouldn't have minded if they put only the bonus features on the flipside, but every disk has 1 or 2 eps on the other side.

Add to that the fact that the DVD features are sorely lacking in this first season. This bonus content alone is not worth the buy (as it often is in other cases). If you only started watching the show recently, and enjoy it, it's worth the buy to see how the characters and relationships are established; otherwise, save your cash and wait for the reruns.

Again, great show, but it's a very poorly designed box set. Fortunately they fixed this in the next season's sets.
