these final shows, the agents, doctors and forensic scientists of the
Jeffersonian Institute are seeking to move on, tie the knot, start
families and finally settling down. Through their knowledge,

clues and recreate the life story/final moments of their victims.

murders and catch the serial killers that commit them.
all good things, things must come to an end (specially with the fact
the characters are getting older and even getting out of shape),
Bones is a murder mystery series not un-like NCIS
with a team specialize specialists with high tech gadgets. However,
unlike real life, most forensic labs takes days if not months to
analyze evidence and data. Like most murder mystery series the
lighter comedy/relief comes from the characters relationship to one
another (not to mention that they totally violate the rules and
ethics of having office romances).
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is as good as it can be in
this format (see our Blu-ray coverage of some seasons elsewhere on
this site) but the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is not quite as good
and makes one wish for lossless mixes. Extras include a series
retrospective of Bones and a Gag Reel.
