Customer Review

on 8 October 2012
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.
