TV Review: Bones | Season Premiere

  • Creator: Hart Hanson
  • Stars: Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley.

Premise: This show has been on for a while but in case you don’t know about it. Bones is based on the life and writings of Forensic Anthropologist Kathy Reichs.
Temperance Brennan, a forensic anthropologist and Seeley Booth, a cocky FBI agent, collaborations to investigate Federal legal cases by examining human remains of possible murder victims. And quite often, there isn’t more to examine than rotten flesh or mere bones.

Review: They had upped the stakes, last season with an action-packed finale. Last night they put the cherry on top. 
When I saw the finale last year, I remember rolling my eyes thinking Brennan was on the run, now Booth is in trouble, great job guys. So coming into the season premiere I was prepared to be mildly bored with an easily fixed plot-line and uninterested new subplots but I was wrong.

There were several markers that showed that the characters were affected by the conspiracy. Booth loses the suit and embarks in a quest of vengeance, being impulsive and pig headed like we know he can be but at least this time not everything went smoothly.
Bones’ new season started with a bang and I liked it. If they hadn’t lost one if their own it would have made the whole thing blend and déjà vu. They’ve done so clearly that the new character they introduced did not set off any alarms warning me that something like this would happen. I’m sad to the character go but I also understand that it was necessary and made for a decent shock wave at the end of the episode.

What did you think of the episode?
