bones 101-

i realized reading back my last post, that if you don't know anything about bones, nothing i wrote would make much sense. so, i'm going to give you an intro guide to BONES.

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. :)

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!

bones 5x1- the harbingers in the fountain.

this weeks season premiere of bones was AMAZING. after the majority of critics and fans were disappointed with the season 4 finale, this premiere had a lot to prove.

i don't think anyone was disappointed anymore.

the season premiere, the harbingers in fountain, was chock full of bones goodness. angela has a new physic who knows where a bunch of bodies are buried (and that brennan and booth are totes meant to be), which gives agent booth (david boreanaz, aka love of my middle school life) and dr. brennan (the gorgeous emily deschanel) their first case back after booth's brain surgery/coma. the case isn't actually that important in this episode, which is really the only weakness.

the focus is on booth and brennan and their constantly evolving relationship. this week, booth told brennan he loved her (!!!!!) but quickly took it back saying it was "you know, in a professional, atta girl kind of way." brennan is totally surprised/shocked/freaked/excited, which is obviously why booth clarifies (slash TAKES BACK) the love confession. she follows it up with an "hah, love ya too, atta boy!" but you GUYS! THEY SAID THEY LOVE EACH OTHER! in their own strange way, but it's good enough for now.

there was also the amazing rescue scene: brennan goes after one the suspects on her own and gets herself stabbed in the arm. booth arrives just in time to shoot the bad guy, and comforts brennan. they're both on the floor and all wrapped up in each other and then booth KISSES HER HEAD and CALLS HER BABY. these two are just completely gone and head over heels for each other, it's adorable.

we end the episode with booth still questioning himself. he doesn't feel completely 100% after his brain surgery and can't remember everything about his old life. this is leaving him confused about his feelings for brennan and if they're legit, or a side effect from the coma. now we all obviously know that they are both totally in love, but it should be interesting to see how they come together this season.

and if they aren't together by the end of the season, i will NOT BE AMUSED.

line of the night goes to brennan, after being asked how she felt after being stabbed: "well, they put me on medication, so i'm feeling how people of average intelligence must feel all the time."

up next: the EMMYS! i don't have a whole lot invested in the actual awards this year, but NEIL PATRICK HARRIS. that's all i need. i will watch every moment. and you can watch along with me as i LIVE BLOG/TWEET. woo!
