Bones - TV Review

         It’s funny the way the producers run this show.  For much of the season, we see gross images of dead bodies and skeletons yet somehow, there is always a way to off set with with comic relief. 

         It could be anyone on the staff such as the obnoxious intern, who rubs people the wrong way with anything he says.  And there is Angela telling him not to be a douche.  

          Hodges looking for the most outrageous experiment.  That could be him shooting a cannon or paddling a dummy.  
          Of course, you have the banter going on whether it’s Booth going telling Sweets to do some shrink stuff or Bones making insensitive remarks to people that she is questioning.  This goes on and on for nearly all the episodes until the season starts to close.  Then the show takes a serious turn. 

          It was quite a finale.  Booth getting into a gunfight with Delta Force people because he is trying to uncover a conspiracy in the FBI.  The battle was intense and I wondered if he was going to get out of it.  Naturally, you would think that he would but that was one of the best battles that I saw, especially when Bones came to his aid.  

           Of course, I don’t think that they needed to do this.  Bones has a loyal audience and it’s going into it’s 10 year.   Yes, this show started in 2005 and it’s still going strong.  Fox does need the show since they don’t have any other hits other than Almost Human and The Following, although I won’t watch that show after seeing the first episode. 

           In any case, I will say that this was a great finale, putting action shows like Hawaii Five 0 and NCIS LA to shame.  Great action on this one.  I’m more than happy to give it five stars.
