Genre: Crime Drama
Forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan, and cocky FBI special agent Seeley Booth build a team to investigate murders - and quite often, there isn't more to examine than rotten flesh or mere bones.
It's been a while that I want to review some series on the Popcorn Corner here in the blog, since I watch much more TV shows than movies so since I've been binge watching Bones since July I thought it was a good series to start with. I started watching Bones after I finished the 8 seasons of Castle, the number of seasons and episodes of this series did scare me at first but well, screw that.
I didn't know what to expect of this series, despite being super popular I had never looked into it before and I really enjoyed finding some things. For one, this has neurodiversity for the win, Temperance/Bones, one of the main characters is a forensic anthropologist who is a super genius on her field, with a intellect above the average she manages to find stuff from a piece of bone that helps solve murders but with that mind comes also a social inability, she isn't very sensitive and also can't connect with people that easily but that doesn't mean she doesn't have friends and lovers, because she does. I loved the little family that everybody at the Jeffersonian Institute forms + Booth.
Now Booth, our other main character, is a bit more difficult for me to like, he is a FBI agent that works with "Bones" and they definitely complement each other, him being a more sensitive part of their time and following his gut on the cases but I'm not totally okay with, well his personality. He does a lot of "jokes" about the "nerds" of the laboratory, Temperance showed at the first episodes that she didn't wanted for him to call her "Bones" but he still kept doing it, also Zack, Temperance assistant and also a sort of genius in this field, tries to talk to him and be his friend and he just ignores him and tell is some sort of bro code - I guess this is supposed to pass as funny, but I'm like ??? this is just mean really.
Having finished the first season I'm still not completely sold on this series, it's interesting with some very different cases and the characters are pretty unique, but some more deeper connection is still missing, I'll still continue to watch this series but idk, also I'm very much not on board with the ship yet, which is bad, because I really wanted to (but Booth doesn't help).
Verdict: 6.66 out 10 stars
