Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Ryan Cartwright Writers: Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley Director: Chad Lowe Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 14, 2011 On occasion, BONES resembles an older Fox series involving the FBI, namely THE X-FILES. One of the primary differences between the two shows is that on X-FILES, the explanation was almost always otherworldly, whereas on BONES, no matter how weird the clues, the culprit will turn out to be as human as the investigators. Even with this caveat (if it’s a spoiler to say […]Read On »

On Fox’s Thursday-night series BONES, now in its sixth season, forensic anthropologist Temperance “Bones” Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel, teams up with FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth, played by David Boreanaz, to solve mysterious murder cases. Their contrasting personalities create mutual attraction and bewilderment in almost equal measure. The duo are backed by a support staff at the Jeffersonian Institute, including supervisor Camille “Cam” Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), artist Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin) and Angela’s now-husband insect expert Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne). While BONES is based on a series of novels by mystery writer and real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, the […]Read On »

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Scott Lowell Writer: Pat Charles Director: Emile Levisetti Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: April 7, 2011 As regular viewers of BONES know, Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is brilliant in many areas, but she’s largely unskilled in the art of apology, or even recognizing when she’s behaved in appropriately. In “The Feet on the Beach,” this issue comes to the fore when eight sets of disembodied feet wash up along the U.S./Canadian border. The Canadian scientist, Dr. Filmore (Scott Lowell), on the case […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: BONES star John Francis Daley has a Sweets time

On BONES, shady guest characters have a tendency to underestimate the professional skills of Dr. Lance Sweets, the youthful clinical psychologist who works with the team in profiling suspects – and occasionally profiles his colleagues, much to their discomfort. John Francis Daley (of FREAKS AND GEEKS and the Broadway production of the Who’s TOMMY), who plays Sweets, evaluates his work on the show for us. ASSIGNMENT X: Did you do any research into being a mental health professional when you got this part? JOHN FRANCIS DALEY: I just made sure to hang around a lot of mentally unstable people. In […]Read On »

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Michael Grant Terry Writer: Karine Rosenthal Director: David Boreanaz Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 17, 2011 BONES often goes back and forth between humor and drama, crime-solving and personal issues, and relationship progress and reversals. In “The Blackout in the Blizzard,” which is almost a bottle episode – there is one scene in an alley – couples get a little closer while everybody has to figure out how to get things done in the middle of a blizzard-induced power outage. While Booth (David […]Read On »

Michaela Conlin is in her sixth season of playing Angela Montenegro, the artist who reconstructs what corpses looked like as living humans, on Fox’s hit BONES (Thirsdays at 9 PM). While Angela works with forensic evidence, she’s not a pathologist like her good friend Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel), nor law enforcement like FBI Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz). However, this week, audiences will get to see a whole different side of Conlin as she plays LAPD Detective Sobel in THE LINCOLN LAWYER, based on Michael Connelly’s novel, which opens Friday. Conlin is very excited about both gigs, as she […]Read On »

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, John Francis Daley, Arnold Vosloo, Billy Gibbons Writer: Michael Peterson Director: Milan Cheylov Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 10, 2011 Most BONES episodes hew to a fairly specific and usually agreeable formula. This is the case with “The Killer in the Crosshairs,” which has as its serious A plot Booth’s (David Boreanaz) continued search for former military sniper colleague-turned-vigilante Jake Brodsky (Arnold Vosloo). Booth is consciously worried that his literal-minded partner Brennan (Emily Deschanel) seems to equate the two men and doesn’t understand that Booth in fact does […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: David Boreanaz digs BONES

Poor Seeley Booth. Sure, the BONES FBI special agent and former military sharpshooter played by David Boreanaz is at the top of his game as a lawman, but when it comes to love, he faces one setback after another. At the end of Season Five, he wanted to make a go of it with Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel, but the thought of that kind of intimacy with her good friend and partner frightened her. Between seasons, Booth fell for globe-trotting ace journalist Hannah Burley (Katheryn Winnick), and this season, the two moved in together, but the […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Emily Deschanel has BONES to pick

Now in its sixth season, BONES (which airs Thursday nights) has proved a reliable hit for Fox. Based on books by Kathy Reichs, the show is a combination of detective procedural and romantic comedy/drama. Emily Deschanel plays Temperance “Bones” Brennan, an internationally revered forensic anthropologist who could give Mr. Spock lessons in logical detachment. Her interactions with her crime-solving partner, David Boreanaz’s emotion-based Seeley Booth, form the backbone of the show. Lately, Brennan has been getting more in touch with her feelings. Although she rejected Booth’s suggestion that they pair up personally at the end of Season Five, this year, […]Read On »

Okay. So the sky isn’t falling … just yet, but at today’s Fox Winter TCA tour in Pasadena, CA, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly admitted that the reason why HOUSE and BONES haven’t been renewed for next season comes down to contract negotiations. “Both shows are creatively important to us,” Reilly says. “I anticipate both will be back. We want them both. It’s more about ‘can we make a deal.’”
