Writer's 10-Step Guide to Episodes of Bones


Bones
has been one of my favorite shows since the pilot, and it could probably go on forever the same way Law & Order does. However, it has lost all it's dynamic by following the exact same formula every week. Don't get me wrong; I still love the show but it's become almost silly. The writers seem to have gotten lazy and just developed the model below, so that now episodes just have a few interchangeable elements, written using the same system used to to play Mad Libs.

1. Remains are discovered in an unusual place by people whom are never seen again.
2. The squints arrive at the scene and do their squinting, while there is some bantering between Bones and Booth.
3. Everything is moved back to the Jeffersonian.
4. A minor personal story relating to a character unrelated to the crime occurs.
5. The remains ...Read more

Checking In On Bones: Was the "The Shot in the Dark" a Life-altering Episode for Our Dear Dr. Brennan?
"The Shot in the Dark" pushed the series' balance of case of the week and character work in a big way, and hit the religion/science split hard.

Bones' Season 8 Premiere: Order (and Brennan's Hair) Is Restored

Bones S08E01: "The Future in the Past"

When Bones left off last season, Brennan was on the run with Christine after being framed for a murder that was actually committed by über-hacker Christopher Pelant. Booth, Sweets, and Caroline were all removed from Pelant’s case, but luckily the team found a freaky, written-in-saliva message from Pelant’s latest victim (Ethan Sawyer) that could prove Brennan’s innocence.

Enter tonight's Season 8 premiere: It’s been three long, non-murderous months in the greater Washington, D.C. area. Booth is a desk jockey, Clark has been promoted to head of the Jeffersonian’s anthropology lab (though he is probably not king of the lab), and Brennan's been hiding in various places with truly horrible blonde hair. I mean it. It’s dreadful. It really washes her out. So glad she got rid of it at the end of the episode ...

Special Agent Seeley Booth
Dr. Temperance Brennan
Angela Montenegro
Dr. Camille Saroyan
Dr. Jack Hodgins

From executive producers Barry Josephson and Hart Hanson comes the darkly amusing drama Bones, inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs. Forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, who works at the Jeffersonian Institution and writes novels as a sideline, has an uncanny ability to read clues left behind in a victim's bones. Consequently, law enforcement calls her in to assist with murder investigations when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned, or destroyed that the standard identification methods are useless.

Brennan has been teamed with Special Agent Seeley Booth, a former Army sniper who mistrusts science and scientists when it comes to solving crimes. Brennan and Booth clash both professionally and personally, but the chemistry between them has grown since they first met and has made them a strong and trusting team. Brennan's equally brilliant colleagues (or "squints" as they're often called) at the Jeffersonian's Medico-Legal Lab include earthy and bawdy Angela Montenegro, who's created a unique way to render an original crime scene in a three-dimensional computer image; Dr. Jack Hodgins, who's an expert on insects, spores and minerals, but conspiracy is his hobby; and Brennan's boss Dr. Camille "Cam" Saroyan, who replaced Dr. Daniel Goodman after the first season. Zack Addy, a young prodigy whose genius IQ sometimes distances him from reality, was Brennan's former assistant, but at the end of season three he left the Jeffersonian. To aid Booth and Brennan in their persisting struggles, psychologist Dr. Lance Sweets signed on in season three as their therapist, and more recently has been hired to work in the lab to provide his unique input on cases.
