where can i find it?: it's on fox, thursdays at 7:00. you can catch re-runs on TNT from like 4-7 on weekdays. they change it up a lot though, so check your tv guide.
who's in it?: david boreanaz and emily deschanel are the two leads. you know david from classics like buffy the vampire slayer/angel. and you know emily because she is zooey's sister, and you all know zooey.
whats it about?: bones, duh. lets break it down:
deschanel plays dr. temperance brennan. she's a forensic anthropologist. if you don't know what that is, she analyzes the bones of dead people and can tell how they died, and how they lived. gets assigned to work with the FBI. she's a legit genius and socially awkward. she puts logic and facts above everything else. she's got some crazy family issues- dead mom, criminal daddy and semi-criminal brother.
boreanaz plays special agent seely booth. (hot, right?) he's a fiercely loyal FBI agent who believes in faith, love and going with your gut. he's a former army sniper. has really cute dimples. would do absoultely anything for his country and the people he loves. also has some abusive, drunk daddy issues. likes to wear bright socks and a belt buckle that says "cocky". affectionately calls brennan "bones". (oh hey, thats the name of the show!)
obviously, two very different people. you've got the brain and the heart. so naturally, they get paired together to solve cases for the FBI. there's the case of the week, and usually some story arc that goes throughout the season.
now if you've ever watched tv before, you know how this game is played. they start off the show, semi hating each other. she thinks he's an idiot, he thinks she's obnoxious, they both think the other is super hot. by the end of season 1, they've got a lot of trust and respect for each other. seasons 2, 3, and 4, have all gone a little deeper into the relationship. starting out with going undercover as husband/wife, and most recently, deciding to have a child together (in non romantic, scientific way, which is how brennan likes things.)
OKAY WHY SHOULD I WATCH?: the relationship between brennan and booth is the number one reason in my books. it's sweet and sexy and meaningful and so honest and lovely. this is tv world, and they can't be together for at least another season, but the writers give us some amazing moments between the two that will have you yelling at your tv "COME ON MAKE OUT ALREADY OMG". and other nice things. :)
CHELSEA, I HATE ALL THIS MUSHY STUFF. WHAT ELSE IS THERE?
okay fine. the mysteries are always interesting. i've learned a lot about anthropology. there's usually some nasty body stuff whenever they find the dead body. it's funny when it needs to be. i've learned to never be the one to call in a murder, because you will be the number 1 suspect. the whole cast is gorgeous. it'll make you smarter.
so there's bones in a nutshell. you can borrow my dvds, watch it online, catch up on TNT, so whatever. just watch it!
