Bones has been on for eight seasons. For at least six of those seasons, fans have done all but beg FOX to allow the relationship between Dr. Temperance Brennan and Special Agent Seeley Booth to bloom into a personal one.
Sometime during the sixth season, that’s exactly what happened: no big build-up, no advance warning, no publicity. I’m sure that Bones’ fans just sat there watching Season 6, Episode 22 and when it happened, their jaws dropped – just like mine.
And when Season 6 ended with Bones announcing to Seeley and the world that she was pregnant with his child, those fans stood up and cheered, just like I did.
Now in Season 8 with Bones and Seely living together raising their baby girl, it seemed natural for Bones to decide in Monday’s episode (Season 8, Episode 4) that she would make a good President. As she made her list of pros and cons, I was excited about getting out the Vote! Yeah! Vote Bones for President!
Bones is one of those quality television programs that has changed and grown over 8 seasons. It has had minimal cast changes; the most dramatic being in Season 3 when Eric Millegan (Dr. Zack Addy) is revealed to be the apprentice to the cannibalistic serial killer known as The Gormogon.
Bones past seasons is available on DVD, Blu-ray and on Netflix, both streaming and DVD through the mail. A quick way to get caught up to this season would be to start with Season 6.
It airs Monday nights at 8/7pm on FOX.
