Bones Season Six – Review

This is the season of chasing. Brennan chases Booth as Booth pursues his relationship with Hannah. It is also about Booth chasing the anti-Booth, the main villain within this story. And, as with all good stories, the chase is the journey, but there are some great and fascinating conclusions to these races of the heart. I spent most of season six on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would come next, and obstinately holding my breath.

Bones Season Five – Review

This is my least favourite season of Bones to date. It is still brilliant, full of great science and engaging plot lines, but it is just lacking that extra thing that the other seasons seem to have. Although, the story did slowly build until the stunning season finale. It is this climax of the season that helps to redeem the series in my eyes. A heart pluckingly beautiful season finale that is full of a heartfelt farewell with things left unspoken and words left unsaid.

Bones Season Four – Review

After the chilling season finale of season three, it was hard to see how the Bones cast would return for season four. But, the expansion of the ‘family’ was brilliantly done and actually made me love the series even more. Zack was gorgeous and easy to love, but having the flexibility of multiple interns gave the stories in each episode entirely different and unique flavours. The variety drew me in beautifully.

Bones Season Three – Review

The third season of Bones was disappointingly short and left me wanting so much more, but it was still amazing. This was the season of deepening relationships between the characters. The first two seasons introduced our beloved cast and forged the relationships between them. But it was in this year that those relationships became so much more meaningful and deep. Even the Angela – Jack relationship was expanded upon in the form of hunting for her ex-husband.

NCIS Season One – Review

I grew up watching NCIS, version 2.0 (with Ziva the main lead). So it was really good fun going back to the very first season and re-watching the entire saga. Plus, getting to know Special Agent Kate Todd was like a breath of fresh air. The mixture of Agent Gibbs, Anthony DiNozzo and the forensics team creates a dynamic cast and on-screen family that you immediately fall in love with.

Bones Season Two – Review

The first season of Bones was everything I would expect from a great first season, so the second was a little lacking. Definitely not one of my favourite ones, but then again, it had big shoes to fill and it was still incredibly forensically and thematically interesting. Plus, my favourite Bones relationship began to bloom, so that in and of itself makes the entire season worth watching.

Bones Season One – Review

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.
