really good tellyBy Candygirl (12 reviews) from N. Wales , 28 May 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]So a show about a forensic anthropologist working with an FBI agent to uncover the truth behind bones might sound a bit dull but OMG was I in for a shock. Kathy Reichs books are brought to life as Dr Temperance Brenning helps to solve murders by simply looking at bones and determining who they are, what they looked like, weapons used, etc. with the team of her squints and the lovely Agent Seeley Booth (who named these characters?!).
The science, technology and brilliant acting make this an intrepid programme that leads you wanting more as you discover more about the socially dysfunctional characters and just what amazing processes are used to uncover identities of victims (even from just a piece of tibia!). Best of all, the serial killer Howard Ebbs, who is on the same intellectual par as Dr Brenning, makes a few appearences keeping the team on their toes and suspense high.
Basically John Doe (remember that?) meets 3lbs and CSI = unmissable.

Bones-season 1By rafcosford (12 reviews) from Hockley.England , 08 Sep 2010I have not read the books so I can just comment on what I am watching. My wife & I have enjoyed the 6 episodes that we have watched. We find that the cast ensemble works well, has been funny in parts & we look forward to seeing the next episode. I don't think you can ask much more of a programme.
What an endingBy leeingrove (22 reviews) from London , 03 Sep 2010Damn... Just as I thought the series was getting a tad staid they throw in the last 2 episodes just to get you to watch the 2nd series... Now can not wait for disks to arrive, will probably be let down as it reverts back to the usual story lines!!!
Reichs fans, steer clearBy a customer from Herne Bay , 31 Aug 2010As a fan of Kathy Reichs and her books, I've been looking forward to watching this series. We watched the pilot (aghast) then the first episode to see if it had improved at all over the pilot. It hadn't. Both episodes were truly terrible. The acting is obvious and OTT; the plots are clumsy; the technology the team uses and the conclusions they leap to are hilarious...but sadly not in an entertaining way.
A huge disappointment.
Bones Season 1 - Disc 1By a customer from Newcastle , 06 Aug 2010Disappointed - I'm a big fan of Kathy Reichs' books but this was lame in comparison. But then again, I find most American dramas the same except for ER which was absolutely BRILLIANT. Not a patch on British TV Drama. Certainly wouldn't buy the DVDs but OK to rent from Love Film ...

A slow, yet interesting startBy Wibblefish (16 reviews) from Bognor Regis , 31 Jul 2010It took a little while to warm up to the characters as the show starts out in the standard murder of the week format, but you are gradually given more background detail on each of them and grow to like them. The science used to work out how victims were killed and by who by examining decomposing remains is very interesting though. There are some fantastic episodes during the second half of the season and I will definitely continue to watch to see how it grows.
