Bones (on FOX)
Actually, truth be told, this is a recently passed current addiction, because after I discovered this show the world stopped. I didn’t watch any other movie or tv show, no blogging (as you noticed)… the kids are lucky they got fed. (Side note: it’s gross. You can’t watch it while eating dinner.) I blame Ayla, who one night said innocently “Let’s watch Bones, that seems good, some of the kids at school watch it and they talk about it.” And thus is started. The world wasn’t right until I was caught up with everyone else – the next episode is April 2nd. My Tivo is set.
About the show: BONES, a darkly amusing procedural is inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs. Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and writes novels on the side. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless (when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed), law enforcement calls on Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim’s bones. While most people can’t handle Brennan’s intelligence, her drive for the truth or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation, Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) of the FBI’s Homicide Investigations Unit is an exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists – the “squints,” as he calls them – who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan’s scientific acumen makes them a formidable duo.
