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; Reservations and ExpectationsBy a customer from Bristol , 12 Apr 2009After having enjoyed crime and investigative tv programmes for a while, and seeing the adverts on tv all those years ago for the first season I thought it was time to rock the boat and sit down and watch Bones.
After reading some reviews being absolutely positive, others really cynical about the show I didn't know what to expect. And as such I decided before watching this to not take the first disc too seriously, and just watch it for fun. I found that the show was very very cheesy, it had silly lines all over the shop.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing, if you love cheese and some pretty light hearted fun poking, Bones is not a show that takes itself seriously, it has fun with silly technology and silly banter that just wouldn't happen dealing with dead bodies without being distasteful.
Having never read the books that this show is based on I can't comment on the representations of the characters, dedicated to source material it is.
I would like to comment it is sometimes hard to understand why the characters are so childish at times, whether it be the young 'student' who does not act like any 24 year old i've ever met, or the FBI agent who is possessive and argumentative with child-like malice.
On a whole it's an average show with its pluses and minuses like every tv show out there.
If you want something light hearted and silly this is for you!
BonesBy Redrum612 (66 reviews) from Sheffield , 09 Apr 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideNot especially remarkable, although i only watched the first episode. Most the characters were pretty flat and felt like they were just saying lines with a bit of a winge instead of developing a personality, a few silly lines and a 3 minute montage of putting a skeleton back together. The mystery was ok but was fairly generic and no issues were underlined to exhibit interest
Shocking...acting, casting and storylineBy a customer from Bath , 24 Mar 2009How this take on the books of Kathy Reichs ever got past the starting blocks, let alone into our DVD players is beyond me. Dreadful acting, add-on characters, rubbish plots. Read the books people, this series is a sad misrepresentation of all that is great on paper.
