Other shows that shall go unnamed are doing it, and BONES is back to trying to expand the role of Dr. Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) in non-organic ways by […]Read On »

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Michael Grant Terry Writer: Stephen Nathan Director: Ian Toynton Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: November 3, 2011 Season 7 has a nice sturdy ring to it. Relatively few TV shows last this long. BONES enters this hallowed territory with the charm of its banter and character dynamics very much intact. The mystery of the week winds up feeling more peripheral than usual, but that’s not why most viewers tune in to BONES in the first place. Pleasingly little has changed in the dynamics between […]Read On »

At today’s Summer 2011 Television Critics Association press tour, Fox’s Entertainment President Kevin Reilly spoke about how proud he was with their Thursday night staple BONES and would love to see it continue well into Season 8 and beyond. “The producers and I would like to keep it going,” says Reilly. “And FINDER [its spin-off] is off to a great start. I see those shows as compatible and feeding off each other. I’m pretty darn happy with BONES on Thursday night. As CSI [on CBS] was fading, BONES is looking as resilient as ever. It’s a really valuable show to […]Read On »

Season 6 of BONES ended on an amazing note, so it’s not surprising that the anticipation for BONES – Season 7 is incredibly high. To tide us fans over, ASSIGNMENT X has compiled a list of things we’d like to see in Season 7. Let us know what you think. 1. Real-life pregnant Emily Deschanel playing fictional pregnant Temperance Brennan. We can safely expect this one. Kudos to show runner Hart Hanson, the production company and Deschanel for incorporating the pregnancy into the storyline rather than stashing Brennan behind autopsy tables or sending the character away for the duration. 2.

If you have that confused with the 1987 parody version, THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN, that gets name-checked as well, with a helpful differentiation between the […]Read On »

Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Michael Grant Terry, Ryan O’Neal, Kevin Alejandro Writers: Hart Hanson & Stephen Nathan Director: Ian Toynton Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: May 19, 2011 Let’s cut to the chase here. When a TV series has a star who becomes pregnant in real life, the options are to write her out of several episodes, stash her behind desks and potted plants while she is “showing,” or just write the pregnancy into the series. As Emily Deschanel is the title character on BONES, writing her out […]Read On »

Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Ryan Cartwright, Tina Majorino, Arnold Vosloo Writers: Carla Kettner & Karyn Usher, story by Carla Kettner Director: Alex Chapple Network: Fox, Thursdays @ 9 PM Airdate: May 12, 2011 BONES has been doing the will they/won’t they dance for the entirety of its six-season run. It’s a measure of the skill of “A Hole in the Heart” that the matter is finally addressed, but quietly, so that our emotions and sense of suspense are both fully engaged elsewhere at the time. Booth (David Boreanaz) is still […]Read On »
