As reported earlier in August, Kim Raver is part of a 2-episode arc on BONES this year—and the arc happens to be the first two episodes of the year. The show is treating the two episodes as a two-part premiere. The first episode airs tonight on Fox at 8 PM and the second next Thursday night.

There are other teaser posts about the premiere, and after the episode, we’ll have a post-mortem with co-showrunner Michael Peterson and my episode recap, so I won’t say too much more here, except to say that I really loved Raver’s turn as Agent Grace Miller.

Her character does butt heads with several other characters we know and love, but that is what I enjoyed about it. I think BONES does a great job integrating new characters (Aubrey being a good example), but for the most part, the new characters quickly come into alignment with the existing themes/characterizations that exist in the BONES-universe. Agent Miller challenges the audience’s perspective of Booth.

On paper, it’s true—he is a bit of a mess, he has suffered tremendous trauma, he can be dangerous, and he presents a risk. But for those characters who know him (and us in the audience), Booth’s track record doesn’t speak to his entire character. I came away from the first two episodes liking the idea that the real Booth is somewhere in the middle—not the guy in an FBI dossier against him, but also not as perfect or pure as some of the characters (and again us in the audience) make him out to be either.

On a recent conference call, I asked BONES star Emily Deschanel (Brennan) what it was like to work with Raver and what it was like to interact with a character who didn’t know Booth quite so well… Read more

Comments Off on BONES: ‘The Donor in the Drink’ Photos

It’s no secret that BONES star David Boreanaz (Booth) is a full-time cast member for the show’s 11th season, so it’s with only the very slightest of spoiler warnings that I give you photos from the third episode of the season.

As you may know, the first two episodes of BONES’ newest season focus on the search for a MIA Booth. But by episode 3, things are (seemingly) back to normal, with Booth and Brennan investigating a case.

Check out some photos from “The Donor in the Drink”…

BONES is back for its 11th season, and when things pick up, it’s months after Booth and Brennan left their jobs to start over.

Unfortunately, things aren’t super great — Booth goes missing, and Kim Raver’s Agent Miller is recruited to help find him.

BONES: Betty White to Guest Star

Comments Off on BONES: Betty White to Guest Star

betty whiteBetty White will guest star in an episode of BONES, a rep for the show has confirmed.

White will play, Dr. Beth Mayer, “an accomplished, sharp as a tack, absolutely fabulous squintern who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football — which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise!” (Um, who can’t wait to see Betty freaking White talking about fantasy football.)

But not everyone will be happy to see her. Dr. Mayer has “a half century of work under her belt,” which makes her “without a doubt the world’s most experienced forensic anthropologist, which will lead to some serious competition with Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) to prove who is the more brilliant scientist!”

The casting news was first broken by White herself on Twitter.

White is the second big name guest star for the upcoming eleventh season of BONES: Kim Raver will be appearing in the two-part season premiere as an agent who is helping the team find a missing Booth.

BONES: Stephen Nathan on Saying Goodbye to the Show (For Now)

As BONES’ tenth season comes to an end, characters could be making some major life-changing decisions.

Whether those changes come to fruition or not, the team will have to deal with a significant challenge in Thursday’s season finale: a case brings (the still-dead) Pelant back into the team’s life.

And while BONES will return for an 11th season this fall, its long-time showrunner, Stephen Nathan, is stepping down. (BONES writers Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson will run season 11.)

When Nathan’s exit was announced, Fox shared that in the immediate future, he would be working on other projects, but he planned on returning “later” in season 11. Nathan — who has worked on the Fox drama since the first season — echoed that sentiment to me during a recent interview sharing, “It’s time to take a step back, get a little bit of perspective, do some other things, and then come back a little refreshed, hopefully.”

But with his (temporary) goodbye looming, I asked Nathan how he felt about leaving the series, for now, and what about the experience has meant the most to him/what he was most proud of. His answers are below, and speak (beautifully) to what the show has meant to him throughout the years. (And be sure to check back here after the BONES finale for a post-mortem with Nathan about what went down)…

It’s a very bittersweet experience; I could stay with the show forever. [Laughs] And I fully expect to come back in some form or another, [but] a full-on decade is a long time. It’s time to take a step back, get a little bit of perspective, do some other things, and then come back a little refreshed, hopefully.

And also, it’ll be great for the show to have some new blood. [They’ll] see things in a different way, which is always good. Jon and Michael are terrific. They’re going to do a spectacular job, I have no doubt.

But it’s difficult to leave, even temporarily, this group, which has been a close and loved family for ten years. It’s a bittersweet experience. There’s more I want to do, but I assume that’s always the case. That’s what it’s like for me [right now].

I’ll miss the actors. The crew. I’ll miss the characters…I’ve been there every episode. Before this, I don’t think I had been on a show longer than three years, which I always thought was my limit. But there was something kind of special about BONES — the show, and the collection of people who produced it, and then the life it had, and my connection to that life. It’s very, very rare, and very, very special.

I look back at the process, and the experience of the show. To me, the greatest thing was being able to be involved in the emotional life of these characters and see them grow and change as I was hopefully growing and definitely changing. [Laughs] Because the characters become a reflection of you, in a way, as you’re writing the show. And you are changed by the characters. It’s a real symbiotic experience.

It is true, when you see them in a particular situation and you write through that, you’re learning stuff about yourself. If you explore those things honestly, there’s a certain honesty that’s transmitted to the audience, that’s shared with the audience. That’s the most gratifying. Those scenes that, personally, I’ve been able to write, that hopefully touch people. That either make them laugh or show a certain absurdity to life. Or that show a sweetness or difficulty in life. Those scenes were always the most satisfying to me.

And also, there were some times we got to do political episodes. I don’t mean government[-related], but episodes that touched on issues that were very important to us. And hopefully we could do them in a way that allowed people to see many sides of an issue.

[On] BONES…the black and white issues are never interesting. And BONES is a very, very gray show. We didn’t have, on a weekly basis, a bad guy and a good guy. We always had people who were caught in terrible situations where they made bad choices. And we would frequently feel terrible for a killer, or rejoice over someone being killed. It was unpredictable in that way. Because I think that’s what life is. We tried to reflect that. And when that worked? That was the most satisfying.

Whether it’s making someone laugh or someone cry or make them see the world in a way they had never seen it before: that’s all anybody can ask for in this business.

BONES’ season finale airs tonight at 8 PM on Fox.
