13 episodes this time, babies a feature. Some fans have objected, but if a series runs for years and there are romances, babies surely may well result. Here they pave the way for an added dimension as characters try to cope.

There is thus extra scope for deadpan comedy from one of television's most unlikely couples. Tough FBI man Booth is emotional about the imminence of new life. Humourless forensic expert Brennan insists on working to the last moment, her excitement confined to thoughts of teaching their future offspring such delights as how to dissect a frog. Meanwhile colleagues Angela and Hodgins try not to let sleepless nights with little Michael affect their work.

The four stars rise to the challenge. They sparkle. They are fun.

Despite such commitments, all actively set about solving yet more intriguing cases. The yuk factor abounds with corpses often in advanced stages of putrefaction (including one flattened over a long stretch of highway). Often identities of culprits genuinely surprise.

As always, the likeable main cast is complemented by quirky "squinterns", Finn a most welcome addition. (More of him, please!) Booth's blunt boss Caroline remains great value. (More of her, too, would be very welcome.) Especially moving is Ep. 4, enhanced by Ralph Waite (of "The Waltons") as Booth's grandfather.

Some may find Ep.12 set in Hollywood a bit silly (although the makers seem thrilled with it). Few, though, will doubt the impact of the season's finale - a ruthless serial killer running rings round the team, one of them in particular danger....

Commentaries. Modest extras. A happy gag reel.

Although occasionally uneven, the series has been a firm favourite from its very start. This latest season may be shorter than many would wish but still contains much to please, babies included.

I have loved Bones since the first episode & have had many favourites over the years (although the episodes where they visited the UK made me cringe) but I wasn't prepared to pay more than 15 for this half series so I have only recently watched it.

I honestly can't think of anything memorable about any episode in this entire series, not because it's short but just because they didn't seem as engaging as older series.

Hopefully next series it can get back on track, because otherwise it's the end of the show for me.

I think there are too many relationships in this series now & not enough plot that isn't about them.
We've got Bones & Booth, Angela & Hodgkins as well as Daisy & Lance - it's just too much.

So, overall, it wasn't that it was bad, but it just wasn't really the show I was expecting it to be.
Had I not watched the previous 6 series & already known the characters I doubt I'd have bothered to make it through the whole series.

I have been a longtime fan of Bones but I'm rather disappointed in the direction the series has taken. Apparently, the viewing figures in America for Bones have been in steady decline and, after viewing Season 7, it's easy to see why. The problem, of course, is the pregnancy of Temperance Brennan and her resulting relationship with Seeley Booth which altered the entire dynamic of the series. What used to be a fairly gritty crime series with nice touches of offbeat humour has now morphed into a kind of romcom/soap opera with a crime background. All the characters have lost the edge that made them so interesting - the tensions and interplay between them have become banal and soft. Too often, the murder investigation of the week seems to be nothing more than a subplot to the trvial tales of two sickly sweet couples and their photogenic babies.

In a way, I'm relieved that this season is only thirteen episodes long although I agree that having to pay the price of a full season for it is a bit much. I don't know if I will bother with Season 8 when it comes out - surely not at full price. I have a feeling that a once intriguing and different series has now run its course. Which is a pity but probably inevitable.

At only 13 episodes this is a little pricey. I think the series may have lost a slight edge with Bones and Booth being together but it doesn't seemed to have lost it to the extent of, for example, Moonlighting in the 80s.

excellent story line and great chemistry between the characters. They keep
on turning out the high standard of story line.

This is a great show. Even though they got Tempe and Booth together with a baby no less, It still hasn't jumped the shark.

This series continues to give good watching. Not enough episodes for my taste...but only because I am greedy and would like to see more of it.

Can't wait to see the next ones!

I was really disappointed to receive this DVD and discover there were only 13 episodes!!! What an absolute rip off!!!! Please don't buy this until it is much cheaper! Still love the program but the series just isn't value for money.
