Overview

Season 1 of the crime drama begins with forensic anthropologist Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) back in D.C. after months away identifying genocide victims. Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) promptly hijacks her to help him with a case.\ Brennan initially refuses, but her boss at the Jeffersonian Institute, Dr. Daniel Goodman (Jonathan Adams), insists that part of her job is being lent out to the FBI. She agrees to work with Booth, but only if she can be his partner in all areas of the cases. The first of these cases establishes the premise for the next 21 episodes. After a body surfaces, the remains are transferred to the Jeffersonian, where Brennan and her devoted "squints" leap to action. Brennan's team includes her assistant, the socially inept but brilliant Zack Addy (Eric Millegan); bugs and slime expert Dr. Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne); and her best friend, forensic artist Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin). The main suspect turns out to be a powerful senator, but despite warnings from the FBI to stay away, Brennan continues with her investigation. Throughout the season, Brennan and Booth are devoted to uncovering the truth, repeatedly finding themselves in dangerous situations and relying on each other for backup. Booth eventually confides to Brennan that he wants to bring closure to victims' loved ones to make up for the lives he took in his sniper past. Brennan, meanwhile, is dedicated to identifying the deceased as a result of the mysterious disappearance of her parents years ago. The duo work together to solve crimes involving small-town cannibals, promiscuous private-school teens and a homeless society in an underground tunnel. As each case draws to a close, the bantering pair grow more intimate, a closeness heightened during the season finale, when unearthed bones provide a link to Brennan's past that may reunite her with the family she thought was lost forever.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Premiering in 2005 on Fox in the slot before House, M.D., Bones proved that there was yet another way to mix police drama and medical investigation to yield a TV hit. Inspired by the life of forensic anthropologist and author Kathy Reichs, the series stars Emily Deschanel as forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, a brilliant scientist more comfortable around decaying corpses than actual breathing human beings. She's in charge of the Jeffersonian Anthropology Unit's Medico-Legal lab team: Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin), a specialist in holographic virtual facial reconstructions; Zach Addy (Eric Millegan), a former child prodigy who is Brennan's assistant; and Dr. Jack Hodgins (T. J. Thyne), an entomologist who is also well versed in plant life and minerals. Brennan's boss, Dr. Daniel Goodman (Jonathan Adams), has, as Brennan puts it, "loaned her out" (along with the team) to the FBI to assist with forensic identification of human remains. Brennan's liaison is Special Agent Seeley Booth (Angel's David Boreanaz) of the Major Crimes Unit in D.C. Warm, friendly, and outgoing, he relies on a more humanistic approach to investigating crimes, in contrast to Brennan's cold, distanced scientific analysis. Despite their differing views, they form a mutual respect and even venture into flirtation. Indeed, the series makes the most of their chemistry, and there’s much to be made. Interesting cases in Season 1 include the arm of a man found inside a bear in "The Man in the Bear"; a desiccated corpse found buried in a fallout shelter in "The Man in the Fallout Shelter"; and a filmmaker found in the ventilation shaft of an underground tunnel in "The Woman in the Tunnel." With plenty of snappy back-and-forth between the characters and enough lighthearted moments to offset the gruesome CSI-like trappings, Bones is worth digging up on DVD.

I just started watching Bones this year- and it is by far my favorite show on television. Brilliant, hilarious, always interesting. This show has it all.

This is like the best show EVER!!! I love it. I love the Brennan and Booth combination. They are terrific! They're funny and seriously respect each other. And, they ride the razor's edge on the sexual tension. Oh and I love Zack with his big brain and childlike naivete. Plus, who wouldn't like a show with a little gore and guts in it? They have some very strange cases. This is just a great show. I haven't bought the DVDs yet, but they are definitely on my wish list. You can't go wrong with this series.

I really enjoy this show because it is an unusual drama that can be serious and funny at the same time. I also love the interaction between the characters.

I didn't think I would get hooked on another "Procedural Cop show" but Bones is nothing like that, it is spetacular beyond all measure. It is insightful and educational on how forensics solves crimes and the chemistry between Booth and Bones is unbelivable. These two are definetly soul mates. Definetly a show worth watching and I CAN"T wait to watch the other seasons. :))

Bones is awsome and everyone else on the fox.com/bones forum agree! Bones is a fasinating, captivating, enticing tv show. This show had me hitched since the begining and you will be too! If you love shows like CSI, NCIS and Criminal Minds you might want to check this out. I have found that every Wednesday I want to watch it rerun or not. It is just amazing how they pull things off. If you go on to fox.com/bones it is not to late to catch the second seasons first episodes. Join me at squint central in the bones forum. See you there!

I love Bones! I saw the first espode on fox the day it aired. I could not take my eyes off the screen! Bones is a awsome role model for young girls she proves that beging smart is good. I have the first season and can't wait for the second season. I think Booth and Bones will hook up over time. It's funny to watch them fight though. Some of my favorte epsodes are Man in the morge, Pilot, Man in the bear,Man in the fallout sheleter. Enjoy!

It is much better than CSI and that NUMB3RS together. You fall in love with Forensic Antropology not just because it is about you but also because the characters are beautiful both physically and psychologically. It is extremely entertaining and intelligent. And while you are deeply inmersed in the plots you casually happen to learn about yourself and your species.

it is some thing new and this stuff really happens out there and these people show you that there is now where to hide

Bones is like a mixture of the X-Files and House put together. I have to say some of the bodies shown in the show are kind of grose, but its really cool how they can identify a dead person by looking and examining their bones. I'm excited to see the rest of the series. I can't wait! #1 Fan!

words cannot describe the true greatness of this show, it is beyond amazing.

I started watching "Bones" this season and found it to be truly fun television! I bought Season 1 to see how it all started and I'm glad I did. Many times I actually laugh out loud while watching! David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel have great chemistry on screen and make every scene enjoyable! I've just ordered Season 3 and am loving every minute of it!

Brilliant! I've been an addict of this show since Season 2, so it's great to have the first season on DVD. The writing and acting is phenomenal!
