Relive all 26 killer episodes!


It seems that the first few seasons were heavily character and ensemble driven, exploring the tension between the lab rats and the field investigators, and laying out the basic foundation of Bones’ and Booth’s interpersonal relationship. We are also provided with the large details of her life, the mystery of her family and the pain of her upbringing. In the writing the emphasis is on the creativity of the team in solving odd circumstances surrounding a death. Still, there’s things that bug me like the dynamic between Bones and Booth becoming somewhat un-genuine in the light of overt probing by Dr. Sweets.

The two lead characters are wonderfully balanced with each other: their approach to life, to their work, to the pursuit of this week’s mystery. Their relationship rings true. Through agreements, disagreements and the sense of humor it takes to weather both, Deschanel and Boreanaz always deliver the wry portrayal these two staunchly serious, but genuinely human characters deserve. Each character’s work is expertly accomplished and equally important to the solutions they unravel together.

The Blu-Ray comes with deleted scenes, commentary, featurettes and a gag reel. The DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track keeps the crime antics alive. However, the 1080p transfer feels unbalanced when it comes to darker scenes. It’s a frequent complaint of recent cop/criminal investigation shows, but it keeps happening. Still, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
