Bones

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 8.30pm, Seven There are so many po­lice dra­mas on the small screen that it’s al­most overkill. Bones, around since 2005, has an ap­peal­ing for­mula be­cause it adds hu­mour to the story-lines based on foren­sic an­thro­pol­ogy. Each episode fo­cuses on an FBI case file con­cern­ing the mys­tery be­hind hu­man re­mains. Cre­ated by Hart Han­son, the se­ries is based loosely on the life and writ­ings of nov­el­ist and foren­sic an­thro­pol­o­gist Kathy Re­ichs. The hero in her 18 nov­els, trans­lated into 30 lan­guages, is Tem­per­ance Bren­nan, played by Emily Deschanel in Bones. Tonight, bits and pieces of a teenage boy lead to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of two close fam­i­lies.
