From Amazon.co.uk

A show that continues to go from strength to strength, Bones is based around the character of forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (a creation of author Kathy Reichs) and FBI Special Agent Seely Booth, who between them must use forensic science to get to the bottom of some particularly gruesome crimes.

Season four of Bones finds the show in particularly rich form. Brennan and Booth have a variety of different cases to tackle, as you’d expect, backed up with exposition about earlier events and many interesting new developments. It’d be remiss to spoil them here, but Bones, to its credit, manages to be as fresh and as interesting as when it first arrived.

What helps gives the show a distinction is its marriage of genres. At its heart, it’s a hard-nailed crime show, but it effortlessly weaves in comedy, romance and some very impressive twists, with an undercurrent of unpredictability that serves it well. The writers clearly had their thinking caps on for season four, too, and while there are one or two lulls, they’re easily compensated for by some very impressive episodes. The relationship between Brennan and Booth clearly sits at the core of the show, and even that--appreciating that television has taken us down similar roads in the past--is interesting to watch, and well realised.

Bones might, at first glance, be easy to dismiss as just another crime show. But there’s genuinely impressive work going on here, and some very smart writing. If it’s at this level of quality four seasons in, then Bones has a very bright future ahead of it. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars Bones- the heart of the matter 20 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
The fourth season of Bones gets us in touch with the characters on a deeper level than previous seasons, with many more serious episodes than the previous seasons, but also a lot more funny ones. It generally follows the same formula as the previous seasons, Booth and Brennan working together on cases, solving murders and such like, though there isn't a 'main' plot point such as Gormogon or Max Keenan in this season, instead it focuses more on the main characters and their relationships, though it does feature an episode with a return from the Gravedigger from the second season.

This season shows remarkable the growth of Brennan as a character, and she has become a lot less two dimensional compared to earlier seasons, and whilst this could detract from her charm slightly, I find that it makes her all the more endearing. We get the rare insight of the vulnerable nature of Booth in a couple of episodes which also shows his growth as a character, and it's refreshing that the characters haven't become caricatures of themselves as happens in other tv shows.

The lack of a certain character from the previous season is disappointing, though the writers make up for it by including several interns, each with their own quirks, all of whom feel like part of the team by the end of the season.

Overall, this season of Bones is both dramatic and amusing, in a perfect blend to get the right amount of viewing pleasure. Though it isn't tied together with an underlying plot point in this season, the 'will they, won't they' of Booth and Brennan keeps us guessing enough to want to keep watching to the end, and for a finale the twist in this season is as entertaining as it's ever been. The best season of Bones so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEAD ON 31 Mar 2010
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Chopped up remains feasted on by crows. A corpse infested by rats. Bodies splattered, dissolved, pulped, microwaved. No matter how squelchy or decomposed, what survives has a story to tell - a challenge for those who work at "the finest forensics facility in the world". Its star is Dr. "Bones" Brennan, she a dedicated professional with life's other aspects barely acknowledged - including humour and people skills.

It all sounds a real turn off. There is no denying the gore, but there is also no denying that the cases truly fascinate and, incredibly, that the series is packed with laughs. How come? Crackling scripts (which must be very hard to learn), a wonderful cast headed by ex-Angel David Boreanaz as macho FBI agent Booth. His teaming with Brennan is one of television's most inspired (and unlikely) partnerships.

26 episodes (the first 4 also included as bonuses in the Season 3 box, depleted by the writers' strike). A few disappoint (English stereotypes in the first two designed for cheap merriment, a finale which may prove too way out for some). Most of the rest sparkle and some greatly move (as with the visit to much missed ex-colleague Zach, and the one where Booth is helped by a ghost - this should not work but it does and is likely to be long remembered). Absurd? Booth and Brennan undercover at the circus - ludicrous but highly entertaining. Black humour in abundance? That is to be found at the funeral - "This man was murdered!" declares Brennan, peering into the coffin.

Adding to the fun are the trainee replacements for Zach - all awesomely gifted and more than a trifle weird. A word of praise too for psychologist Lance Sweet. At first he seems just an object of fun but repeatedly proves his worth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones 30 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
First of all, just a note of caution. If you've already bought the box set for season three with the first four episodes on it from season four, they're repeated here. So that's one disc you really don't need, and it made me annoyed when I realised. As for the rest, it's a great combination of humour, gore and scientific terminology (how do the actors remember it all? But then again, would we know if they got it wrong?). The UST between Bones and Booth is growing, but it's the stories that capture the imagination. A good buy (apart from the first disc!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Still live and kicking 2 Nov 2009
By H VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I've always loved this series for its humour, mystery, the chemistry between Booth and Brennan, and the way it expertly treads the line between treating the viewer like a child who needs all the science dumbed down and treating them like a Ph.D

Season 4 doesn't disappoint. There is some needless repetition of episodes which were already included on the Season 3 boxset, but once we get into the new stuff you get a very emotionally rich season which adds greater depth to the existing characters. The relationship between Booth and Brennan is kept simmering nicely, and I applaud the writers for managing to keep that up without overcooking it and driving the viewer to the annoying "won't they just get a room already" point. The progression of each character feels real, and every insight gained is entirely believable in the context of what we know about the characters so far. There's also a welcome return from Stephen Fry.

That, however, is the old; this season brings plenty of the new as well. There are zany new experiments, some truly disgusting new scenarios with the bodies, and an excellent array of supporting characters as new interns keep popping up in the lab vying for their place as Brennan's new assistant. House did something similar in its Season 4 by bringing in new job applicants, but unlike that show Bones only gives us one to deal with at a time so we get a much more in depth look at them. They're all very different, but each brings a new and interesting dynamic to the lab - the comic possibilities are ruthlessly mined without the show ever feeling like it's becoming parody.

Intelligent yet amusing television is getting increasingly difficult to come by, so long may these bones continue to shake, rattle and roll
