Bones is a TV show that’s refreshingly real, from characters to plots, while intellectually stimulating.
It’s based on the real-life work of forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs.

Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a smart, focused, professional woman whose sensitivities are not so far from the surface that she is hard, nor so close to the surface that she is weak, or weakened by them.
She is serious, candid and forthright. Her ability to "handle" herself stems from confidence and experience, not tragedy or pathology as is so often the case in TV-land female characters.

Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) could be a hardened, tough guy, stereotypical character, but he's not.
While we are reminded regularly of his past as a military sniper, the sensitivity he brings to his duties as an FBI agent redeem his past actions, as is his hope.
He is a fierce patriot and proud FBI man, and his character's motives and motivation are clear and noble.
They are never fanatically righteous or overbearingly macho.

These two characters are wonderfully balanced with each other: their approach to life, to their work, to the pursuit of this week's mystery.
Their relationship rings true.
Through agreements, disagreements and the sense of humor it takes to weather both, Deschanel and Boreanaz always deliver the wry portrayal these two staunchly serious, but genuinely human characters deserve.
Each character's work is expertly accomplished and equally important to the solutions they unravel together.

As audience, we enjoy their working together.

Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth are a great team - as are Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz.

But, it isn't only the charisma of the two main characters or their portrayers that keeps the show real, believable, compelling.
Dr. Brennan's support team at the lab are a fine crew: Michaela Conlin as Angela Montenegro, a forensic artist and friend to Dr. Brennan; Eric Millegan as Zack Addy, a genius, geeky, naively lovable forensic anthropologist in-training; T.J. Thyne as Dr. Jack Hodgins, soil, bug and all-things-creepy expert; and Jonathan Adams as Dr. Daniel Goodman, the administrator/anthropologist and the lab crew's boss.
Each has an expertise that is technically viable and each is well portrayed by the actors cast.

It all adds up to a TV show you can't wait to see again!
