Bones is one of my all-time favourite TV shows. I love the combination of humour, mystery and (mostly) correct science. For someone who has spent almost all of her adult life studying science, the fact that the forensics in a forensic show are mostly correct, and never blatantly wrong is a breath of fresh air. It was actually the TV show that made me decide to read Kathy Reichs’ Temperance Brennan series.

The first season of Bones is everything that a first season should be – it introduces the characters and makes you fall in love with them; has intriguing plot lines that keep you watching; and, when all is said and done, leaves you hungering for the next season. The fact that it was based on a book series doesn’t detract in the slightest – the storylines and even characters are so different that you can enjoy both the book and show, with surprises around every bend!

The creation of a work family was an unexpected pleasure. Throughout the series I got to know and understand the individual characters, but it was their ability to relate to each other in a tight-knit, family group that kept me coming back.

The first season of Bones is a rare mix of family drama, comedy, crime and (actually correct) science. It has remained one of my favourite shows since I first saw it a few years ago. If you haven’t had the time to watch it, I would recommend finding a TV and getting settled in for a good binge watch!
