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

BONES 206: The Heart of the Show

April 27, 2015 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Bones

bones-featured-season-10

The BONES 200th episode was such a huge milestone and production that it’s no wonder the 206th episode may come and go with a bit less fanfare. But, as fans, we know that the 206th is special—after all, there are 206 bones in the human body! With that in mind, we wanted to do a little something special to mark the occasion.

We found a list of all 206 bones (thank you Wikipedia!) and were surprised to learn that all of the bones can be grouped into five categories: vertebral column, chest, head, arm, and leg. From there, we assigned each category a show representation:

  • Vertebral Column (What’s the backbone of the show?)
  • Chest (What are the defining emotions or heart of the show?)
  • Head (What is unique in terms of the show’s smarts and respect of intelligence?)
  • Arm (What’s the show’s outward focus; how does BONES affect culture?)
  • Leg (What has carried the show over the long haul?)

Between now and when the 206th episode airs (Thursday, April 30th), we’ll be covering one category per day. We have our thoughts, and we also have input from some of the cast and crew of the show. We’ve covered the backbone of the show, and now it’s time to talk about the heart.

BONES’ 200th episode is airing this Thursday, and as Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Gary Newman pointed out during an on-set celebration, it’s one of only a few Fox shows to reach that incredible milestone.

To celebrate how far Team BONES has come, I asked the cast and producers for their first memories of working on the series.

Comments Off on The BONES Cast and Producers Tease Episode 200

bones-featured

BONES is telling a different kind of story for its 200th episode — sure, a body is discovered, but the episode is set in Hollywood in the 1950s, and Brennan is a cop, while Booth is a jewel thief.

And since the hour is bringing back a lot of familiar faces, I asked BONES executive producers Stephen Nathan and Jonathan Collier, as well as stars David Boreanaz (Booth), Emily Deschanel (Brennan), Michaela Conlin (Angela), TJ Thyne (Hodgins), Tamara Taylor (Cam), John Boyd (Aubrey), Carla Gallo (Daisy), Eugene Byrd (Clark), Michael Grant Terry (Wendell), Pej Vahdat (Arastoo), Laura Spencer (Jessica), and Ignacio Serricchio (Fuentes) for their best teases about the hour…

BONES: Stephen Nathan on a Possible Season 11 and Whether They’ll Write in Emily Deschanel’s Pregnancy

December 8, 2014 by  
Filed under Bones

bones-season-9-thumbBONES is about to celebrate its milestone 200th episode this week, and the people associated with the show are hoping there will continue to be life in the Fox drama beyond this year.

“All indications are that there probably will be [another season], but you never know until you know for a fact,” BONES executive producer Stephen Nathan told reporters on a conference call today. “We’re just going to keep moving forward, and I know [BONES creator] Hart [Hanson] and I have talked about this before. If we have to end it, we’ll end it. But it doesn’t seem like it’s ready to end.”

“10 seasons, what at the beginning was an inconceivable thought…when in the first 13 [episodes], we weren’t even sure if we’d have enough stories [for those],” he continued. “Here we are 200 episode later. The show has a lot of life in it. The show is not boring to do. We come in going, ‘We could do this or this.’ Which is remarkable in itself.”

As for what may (or may not) end up on the show, Nathan acknowledged that the writers are still debating whether to write BONES star Emily Deschanel’s real-life pregnancy into the show.
