Product Description

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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Don't call me Bones" :) Jan. 7 2007
By M. B. Alcat TOP 500 REVIEWER
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?

2.0 out of 5 stars Great show, but DVD could be better... Jan. 7 2009
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.

I absolutely love this series and have most of the books by Kathy Reichs. Glad to own it on DVD so I can rewatch whenever I want to without having to worry about commercials or paying to view it online!

Arrived in a timely manner :)

5.0 out of 5 stars BONES: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON Sept. 17 2013

It was great to go back to the beginning, after eight years, and see the interaction of the actors and how they have developed. It also allowed us to catch up on any missed episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Kathy Reichs! July 13 2013
By Diane
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy being able to watch a serie at my leisure and without commercials. I can better follow the evolution of the characters,since I don't have to wait a week between episode and be distracted by a lot of television viewing of other similar programs. I'm happy to see a television program,based on a book,that has managed to keep it's integrity.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is so worth it to see a show like this (great writing, characters) on your own time with no commercials. I hadn't seen the beginning before, so I really enjoyed seeing the start of the first season. Great quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than average 'procedural' Nov. 13 2012
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.
