Bones really is very good, I must admit I watched it for the first time, quite simply because there was nothing better on, and I was very sceptical thinking it would be a cheap CSI rip-off.
However, I was pleasantly suprised, like many say, it can be difficult to sum up, but I think it breaks down like this;
- The character background and development of Lost
- The science of CSI
- The sexual tension of The X Files (back in the day when it was Mulder and Scully, will they/wont they?)
- The emotion and dramatic twists of 24 (not always, but the last episode has it all) and;
- The bickering comedy of something like Scrubs
Ok a comparison to Scrubs may be a little out there but there are a number of witty jokes and the humerous (pun intended) rivalry between the characters is good for a regular chuckle, particularly Bones' attempts to get her partner, Booth, to let her have a gun of her own, despite her trigger happy ways.
All in all, I would really recommend it, as I describe above, it takes the best parts of some brilliant shows and turns them into something very special.
