Based on the best-selling book series by Kathy Reichs, Bones is a popular T.V. drama depicting the life of forensic anthropologist, Temperance Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel. She works at the Jeffersonian, a research center in Washington D.C., along with many other elite forensic analysts to help the FBI solve countless crimes and put away many murderers.
“The Bones season eight premiere was a strong one,” reviewed Screenrant.com. “It tied up some of the loose ends from season seven, while setting up an arc for the rest of the season.”
At the beginning of the eighth season, Brennan and her daughter, Christine are on the run because she was framed for the murder of a colleague. The man who framed her was computer genius, Christopher Pelant, played by Andrew Leeds. As a FBI agent and also the father of Christine, Seeley Booth, played by David Boreanaz, attempts to prove Brennan’s innocence and Pelant’s guilt. But while Booth and Brennan’s team start to piece clues together, tech genius Pelant continues to create obstacles.
“[Bones’] little bit of creepiness mixes with entertaining characters and genuine emotions to keep us entertained,” said Buddytv.com.
The drama premiered on September 17 and attracted about ten million viewers, while each episode is typically watched by around eight million, according to Entertainment Weekly. The show Bones has been on the air for seven years, always with steady ratings. The series is a nice balance of drama, comedy, and suspense, with very interesting and diverse characters.
