I love Bones! One of my favorite things about Bones that keeps me coming back for more is that many times I can relate to the episode and to what is happening.   Bones is inspiring and vigorating and it teaches us that no matter what life might throw our way that as long as you believe in yourself and have the support of loved ones you can achieve your goals and reach your full potential and that you can overcome any obstacle.   Bones teaches us that no matter who we are or what we have become that we have the right to be loved and be respected. 

Dr Temperance Brennen (Emily Deschanel) is a genus and she is the resident Forensic Anthropologist at the Jeffersonian Institute.  She is also a published Author. Brennen has issues with trusting people due to the fact that her parents disappeared when she was 15.  Her brother Russ later left her and she ended up in foster care.  She was later rescued by her Grandfather.  Brennen has thru out the years built up a wall of protection so that she will not get hurt.  With in the episodes of Bones we see how Brennens wall starts to crumble and she lets Booth into her life and heart.. 

Then there is SSA Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz), oh what can we say about Booth, aside from the fact that he is “HOT”. I love the way David  plays the character, he brings such life into the him and as usual puts his whole heart into the role.  Booth like Brennen has had a rough life.  His father was abusive to his mother and younger brother as well as him, his Mother ended up leaving and left the boys with their Dad. they all lived with Booths granddad (Pops(Ralph Waite) in the end it is Pops who raises Booth and his brother because their dad also leaves.  Booth was in the services where he was a sharp shooting sniper, he later joins the FBI as a Special agent,   Booth is a good man who at first gets the wrong end of the stick.. He meets a girl falls in love they have a son together, he asks her to marry him and for some God forsaken reason she turns him down.  He then falls for Brennen, who in her own right seems to have problems that need to be addressed. He ends up going out with different women as he struggles with his feelings for Brennen as does she about her feelings for him.

Dr Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne) is the resident entomologist more fondly called the bug and slime guy.  Hodgins is a conspiracy thereticist and he loves to do crazy experiments in the Lab which usually results in the whole lab being closed down for one reason or another. Jack is the sole survivor and aire to the Cantaleder group. He actually is everyones boss at the Jeffersonian, He hasn’t told anyone the truth about this. The only one who knows the truth is Zach (Erik Millegan) and that is because he is living in Hodgins guest house above his garage.

Angela Montenegro is the daughter of a Rock N Roll Guitar God (Billy Gibbons). She is an artist and also is Brennens best friend. She is recruted by Brennen to do facial recontructions on the victums so that they can be identified. Angie is a free spirit and she openly flirts with Booth. she is out spoken and goes after what she wants. Angela hopes to one day return to Paris and become the famous artist she desires to be.

Dr Cam Saroyan (Tamera Taylor) a self renound forensic corner and she takes over the head spot at the jeffersonen which does not make Brennen happy, but in the end all is forgotten and Cam is accepted into the group.

Dr Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) is a young pykiatrist who starts working for the FBI.  He is assigned to analize if Booth and Brennen should work together.  He is met with adversity from Booth and not being taken seriously by Brennen who doesn’t like Psycology.

She makes him stop the car and she starts walking, but he needs her to get back in the car as they have a case to solve.  She agrees on the condition that Booth takes her out in the field and that she has first hand experience with the whole case.  Booth agrees reluctetly and they go to the case where Zach her assistent is waiting for them.

In the season one finale episode the remains of her  mother are found.  Brennen thru the heart break of this decides to concentrate on looking into her murderer.  Booth discovers where her brother Russ who is on parole is working and pays him a visit.  He brings him to the Jeffersonian which upsets Brennen a lot at first. 

But in the end all works out and all three are at Brennens apartment drinking a beer.   Booth sneaks a peek at her new book and discovers that she has dedicated it to him.  Brennen gets a mysterious call which turns out to be her father Max (Ryan O’Neal), who tells her to back off the investigation.  Then the hunt is on to find Max Kennen.

All the long I am thinking my Gosh are these women crazy? Booth is a catch that any woman would be proud to have.

Season 8:

At the start of season 8,  we see Brennen and Christine, Brennen decides it is time to uncover the truth about Pelant (Andrew Leeds) and she digs up his couselor, which he had killed many years ago.  Booth meets up with Brennen and her dad and goes on the run with her.  Eventually Brennen is cleared, as well as Caroline for excepting a Bribe from Brennen by Angelas computer intellect which also has a hand in clearing Brennen. Pelant is arrested for the murder of his couselor and for Brennen’s friend. Pelant erases his identity and creates a new one and gets released into the hands of the egypten government.  Everything goes back to normal or so we think, Brennen and Booth have tention between them, because of the changes in Brennen since she was a fugitive.  They have an arguement  which at the end of the episode turns out to be ok. And true to the Bones writers the ending of this episode is a little comical when Brennen tells Booth that she doesn’t want to be polite when they argue, Booth says ok I will make sure that doesn’t happen again, she asks him how, he says I will Fart when I kiss you. They kiss and Brennen tells Booth that he better not Fart

Pelant returns to cause problems for Hodges by making him choose his money or to save a bunch of school girls, Hodges of course chooses the grils and him and Angela are now broke.

The crew go on solving murders here and murders there, one day Booths mother shows up and tells Booth she is getting married and wants him to give her away. mean while Booth and Brennen try to solve the murder of a stripper, while on their way to question a rival stripper of the decedent, Booth gets mistaken for being another stripper at a birthday party, this is only after Brennen explains that she stripped while in college when she wrote a paper on the subject, the women of the party manage to get Booths pants down which he quickly pulls up again. in the end a happy go lucky Booth walks his mother down the isle into the waiting arms of her piano player. Booth and Bones have their dance together.

We all know that eventually Bones and Booth will tie the knot and this was even more displayed as it is Brennen who catches Booths Moms bouquet. But please don’t rob us the satisfaction in knowing how all this came about.. plus I fear once they tie the knot Bones will most likely end, so hopefully before that all of our squint questions will be answered and we will finally see how Brennen and Booths relationship began..

Season 9:

Personally I feel robbed on their relationship as it just went from mourning Mr Nigel Murrays death to her being pregnant with nothing inbetween. Hopefully sometime they do a back episode where everything is brought into prospective for us Bones fans.

I hope that Bones creaters keep bringing us this spectacular and moving program for many many years to come.. Thank you for making such a fantastic program which brightens my day and inspires me that my dreams are indeed reachable and for inspiring me to aim for the stars.

I love Bones and I will remain a loyal viewer for as long as it is on, which hopefully will be a long time, but please please Bones writers find a way to explain how it came about that they are finally together, also quit making Christine grow up so fast. i mean it was only a few episodes ago that she was a new born and now she is a toddler, and where is Michael Vincent and Parker? what about Russ and Jarad?

Did I mention how HOT Booth is? yeah I think I did, but hey no one says I can not mention it again right.. well there is the review from about season 4 until now.. in the first 3 seasons we see how Brennen goes from not liking Booth, to tolerating him, to caring about him, but you can really see how much they grow to care about eachother as Booths and Brennens chemestry is remarkable.

Booth I feel is the backbone of the show, he helps Brennen stay level headed instead of looking at the world with blinders on, Brennen however does have her moments of victory when it comes to teaching Booth a lesson. Which she does in many funny and different ways. Booth and Brennen really compliment eachother as do David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel.

Keep up the good work and I look forward to next season and the adventures there in.. Off to start watching from season 1 again.. 😉 I will be adding more as time goes on eventually I will have a recap of all the seasons.

See you next fall for season 10,,
