SEASON 1-4

Bones

Bones

Bones first aired on Fox Network on September 13, 2005. This series, based on the premise of science cracking FBI cases, is loosely based on the life of forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs. FBI special Agent Seeley Booth is teamed up with a team of anthropologist/bone specialists to solve cases from the Jeffersonian Institution (aka Smithsonian). Booth is a former US Army Rangers sniper. This forensic team consist of Dr. Temperance Brennan aka Bones, superbly intelligent but lack social skills, Angela Montenegro, a forensic artist, computer whiz and Dr. Brennan’s best friend, Camile Saroyan – head of the Forensic Division at the Jeffersonian (introduced in the Season 2), Hodgins, an entomologist and self professed “king of the lab” and Dr. Lance Sweets, psychologist of the department (introduced in Season 3). There was Zach, (season 1-3) graduate student of Dr. Brennan and Hodgins’ best friend, who was jailed for aiding and abetting the Gormogon, a cannibalistic serial killer.

Much of the interest and spark of the series lie with the interaction of the characters: Brennan and Booth – one book smart, the other street smart, Hodgins and the other grad students – irking and egging each other on while conducting dangerous experiments in the lab, Sweets with Brennan and Booth – him trying to prove that there is something more than a professional relationship between the later two, and Cam and Angela encouraging his hypothesis.
