If there is one thing I love, its the increasing popularity of television series these days. I’m always open-minded when it comes to different shows. Always in the mood to start watching something new and exciting, and Bones is definitely something new and exciting.
Although I am only starting this series, I am hooked, and I am positive that it will only be a couple more weeks until I am caught up in the series. Season one wasn’t about an overall arc as it was about introducing the characters.
The characters were incredibly colorful and amazing. Each and every actor in “Bones” knew what they were doing, and they carried out their performance wonderfully. Especially Emily Deschanel. Emily outdid herself with her character Temperance “Bones” Brennen. She was able to get us, the viewer, to relate to her in an incredible way.
Bones is about a lonely and cynical forensic anthropologist solving crimes by looking at the physical traits accompanied by murder in the human skeleton. And man, is she a genius at what she does. While there wasn’t much of an overall arc, the story did get more interesting until the very end of the season with the breathtaking season finale’s cliffhanger.
Emily isn’t the only one with an incredible acting ability in this show. Everyone else in this show is great as well. Of course, there is David Boreanaz as Agent Seeley Booth. He puts on an incredible performance. T.J. Thyne as Hodgins and Eric Millegan as Zack Addy also have truly amazing characters who add so much to the show.
The show gave itself some originality when they gave the characters their key traits. Like Brennen, whenever a character would mention a scene of a popular movie, she would always say “I don’t get what that means,” but she would always know the scenes of an unknown film.
The show really explores it’s potential this season, and I have no doubt in my mind that it will only get better as it progresses. It has it’s funny episodes, but it also has it’s fair share of sad episodes that truly leave you feeling for the characters, especially Temperance. There has been episodes where the others go through a tough time, but none of them compare to what Temperance goes through everyday regarding her parents.
I never saw this show when it originally aired. After watching this first season, I have to be honest, I’m a little upset at myself. This is actually a very well done show that deserves it’s viewers. Well, I’m off to watching season 2, I’ll catch you next week, peace out.
