For Fans of Angel: Sad News

I try to stay within pretty strong confines here of talking about Bones, and nothing else. But sometimes, you have to make an exception.

For anyone who is/was a fan of David Boreanaz's other big series, Angel, you might be saddened to know (like me) that Andy Hallet, who played Lorne in a great deal of the episodes, has died from heart failure at the young age of 33. Terribly sad and he will be missed.

Emily Deschanel at the 2009 Genesis Awards

Kristen at E! has posted a candid of Emily Deschanel at the March 28, 2009 Genesis awards on her Flickr.


Gorgeous, as always!

Episode Description: Mayhem on the Cross

It's consultation time with Gordon-Gordon in "Mayhem on the Cross." Despite the freaky Sweets image this looks like it will be a great episode!

Episode Description: The Cinderella in the Cardboard

You can read the full episode description for "The Cinderella in the Cardboard" here. It does seem to have a few interesting stories for side characters, doesn't it?

Mayhem on the Cross: Episode Stills (hooray for Stephen Fry)

Episode stills for the episode airing Thursday, April 16th: "Mayhem on the Cross."

I heart me some Gordon Gordon!


But Sweets is seriously freaky in this undercover role:




Mmm, I hope these two interacting is as good as it would seem:

Remind anyone of the last time these 3 sat in the diner?

The full TV Guide sexiest video - it's back

Let's see if it stays up this time!

As I mentioned before, don't stop at the first David Boreanaz shot - he appears more than once in the video!

A Spoiler even Spoilerphobes will want to know

In my last post I debated whether or not to open up what it technically a 'spoiler' to everyone. If you really, really, really hate knowing anything about the future inside the show then you can stop now.

But, I think this is something that interests everyone as it is not specific, but it's about the general path of the show in general.

So...

Since Zack left (or was ripped violently from the show, per your view), we have been blessed (or cursed) with rotating interns. If memory serves me, we were promised this House-like plot device would be temporary.

Well.... gotcha?

According to producer Stephen Nathan
, they aren't going away anytime soon:

Question: There appears to be agreement amongst most Bones fans that the ridiculously adorable Wendell must be crowned Brennan's permanent grad student. (I mean, come on! The guy geeks out with Brennan and the Squint Squad and he’s Booth’s hockey buddy? How can you say no to that?) Any idea as to when we'll see the end of rotating-intern-palooza? --Olivia
Ausiello:
Maybe never. "As of now we're going to continue to rotate them," says exec producer Stephen Nathan. "We were looking back at all the interns we used this season and trying to figure out who would work out best, and we can't make a decision. We love them all. And I think [the variety] has really helped the show a lot, because fans have their favorite, so people tune in to find out who's going to be on that week. Also, we've been extremely lucky with the actors we've cast. Everybody our casting director Rick Milligan has brought in could easily be a regular on our show, and that's a very rare thing to find. It seems like we have a permanent cast of players now."
Are you happy with this? I, for one, would bristle at Olivia's assertion everyone likes Wendell. I would take Clark in a heartbeat, though, I must admit some of them have been growing on me recently, especially Mr. Nigel Murray.

What are your thoughts on the interns? (Apologies to those who have already posted on the other thread but would love if you could repost your comments here!)

Ausiello tosses out a couple of spoilers

The latest Ausiello spoiler Q&A has two Bones spoilers on there. The first is something that surprises me, and makes me groan (considering opening it up everyone as something all should know, let me know what you think about that in the comments). And, I must say, I do NOT agree with the 'consensus' the fan claims.

The second is disappointing to those who read sides because you already know that, but it is being tossed out by a producer, so I'll give that a pass, I guess.

What do you think of the reveals?

Thanks, Bonzgirl, for the quick heads up!

The TVAddict says: Where's the love for BONES?

The TVAddict is adding his voice to the chorus of "Seriously, Fox?!" when it comes to the treatment of Bones. Let's hope they are listening!

BONES has helped to finally make FOX a force to be reckoned with on Thursday night (as per TV Week), “boosting the network’s season-to-date average in the 8PM time-slot by 43% in adults 18 to 49 and by a whopping 74% in overall viewers,” and one can’t help but wonder: What’s a guy gotta do for a little respect around here?
Thanks, luvnboothnbones, for the tip!

David Boreanaz on Rachel Ray - Full Video

Here is the full video of David Boreanaz on Rachel Ray. For the spoiler phobes, skip from 2:00 to 2:20 and you are gravy for the rest of the interview (cute Jaden story in the interview, by the way).

Thanks, Brittany, for the tip! Video credit: Boreanaz.net

Matt Roush on the Bones pre-emption(s)

A fan asks Matt Roush his opinion on Fox's treatment of Bones:

Question: So what's the deal with Fox’s continued poor treatment of Bones? Yet another pre-emption this Thursday, I hear, after advertising 11 new episodes in a row. This might be excusable (Fox didn't ask for a presidential press conference this week, I know) if there was a valid reason for it. So far, all Fox has told us fans is that American Idol must move to Wednesday and Thursday, and Hell's Kitchen cannot be bumped either due to the nature of the show. Okay, great. However, Fox has not yet answered our repeated question as to why House is showing two reruns next week. Maybe you can find some answers for us, please? The fact is Fox has taken us fans for granted too many times this season alone and I, for one, am getting too tired of this game. I have no DVR so I must actually arrange my evenings to watch TV. If the Fox executives refuse to provide the service they advertise (i.e. actually airing a television show), they can at least provide their expectant viewers a full explanation.—Kelly

Matt Roush: With all due respect (and for the record, I got a mini-flood of angry questions about this late last week), what’s the mystery here? We at TV Guide Magazine like Bones, too; we just put the show’s stars on our cover (I hope the fans all went out and bought one). And I understand the frustration of Bones fans over the show’s frequent time slot changes (this year exacerbated by Fringe taking up residence on Tuesdays). But this week’s situation is pretty clear-cut. All the networks had to adjust for the president’s Tuesday night prime-time appearance. Fox was hit especially hard, as Tuesday is the showcase night for its biggest hit, American Idol—and if you think Fox is worrying about anything else these days, you’re being naive. Besides, something tells me if Fox had decided to move this week’s scheduled Bones episode to Monday or Tuesday at the last minute, fans would still find a way to feel slighted. Monday’s House repeat was already on the schedule, and filling the Tuesday hole with another House repeat is simply a case of the network making the best of a bad situation (House being a draw regardless of circumstance). Bones has the good and bad fortune of being something of a utility player for the network. Being less serialized than a reality show like Hell’s Kitchen, it (like fellow procedural Lie to Me) can fall on or off the schedule more easily, with less collateral damage, and yes, that does make it feel like it’s being taken for granted. (Fox has also explained that pre-empting Hell’s Kitchen this week would likely have meant doubling up another week, meaning another Bones pre-emption down the line.) This is not a conspiracy against Bones or Bones fans. It’s just the way it goes when TV’s most powerful show is thrown off its course. Something’s gotta give, and this week Bones paid the price. And airing a new episode out of pattern this week would likely have done more harm than good. Plus, as we’ve said many times before, at least the network isn’t still threatening to move the show to Fridays.

More Bones Scripts ordered: Next Season Begins

Last year, there was no hint of Bones Season 4 until the upfronts in May when they announced a full season pick-up. But, some of Season 4 was filmed with Season 3 thanks to the strike and timing.

This time, Fox has ordered 6 episodes early, but not yet announced the full Bones Season 5. Maybe they like that film-some-early plan (they get to pay people on Season 4 contracts if they go ahead and film them before summer break)? Who knows when they will truly go into production, though. But it definitely is a good nod toward seeing a lot more of Bones again next fall!

TV Guide's Sexiest: The Video

TVGuide has posted a video going through their sexy stars. Skim through it all - David Boreanaz appears in more than one place!

I don't think I posed the teaser version of this before. Check it out for a quick shot of DB holding his towel...but you have to watch closely as it is quick and only shows chest to knees, or so.

The full video has now been totally removed, bah.



Edit: Leaving the link for now, though the video is coming up Private. Will keep looking...

Alpha Males: DB is ouuuuuuut of there

Kristin has put out the latest round of her Alpha Male Madness and it looks like the flip flop between David Boreanaz and Jeffrey Donovan did not work out in DB's favor.

TVGuide's Sexiest: Behind the Scenes

Here's a great photo of David Boreanaz behind the scenes of the TV Guide photoshoot for the upcoming "Sexiest" spread. Check out a full set of star photos from the magazine shoot here.

Thanks, Shep, for the tip!

David Borenaz on Rachel Ray: Clip

Here's a great clip of David Boreanaz on Rachel Ray today. It's not the entire interview, but it's priceless and spoiler free! (Watch him dance...)

Thanks, Mary, for the heads up!

Continuing Schedule Talk

As we all know, between Obama and Fox, there is no Bones this week, which begs the question "When do we get that missing hour?"

Korbi from Zap2It, admittedly not my favorite person, jumped right on it. First, she hyped up the fans (huge spoiler warning on that link for some) with speculation that it would be the finale (would be an absolutely moronic move on Fox's part). Then, she posted fan's comments as an open letter to Fox. And now, she says she has insider knowledge of exactly which episode will definitely be pushed to the fall: "The Beaver in the Otter." (And I think she's hoping to claim credit as well...mmmhmmm.)

As we've seen with the schedule, the only way we truly know what will air when is what starts at 8 pm on any night of the week (and once in awhile, 9 pm!). I'll keep reporting what I hear but, after getting a full season schedule just last week, it's already changed again!

With her numbering, that would be the next episode to come up in sides releases. If she's right, I can only hope that means it will be written to fit into next season, character-wise, and not stand out like a painfully sore thumb with inconsistencies and mistakes.

That said: losing an hour of Bones when we were to have so many...sucks.

New Poll: Spoilers

Here's a new poll, with questions and answers straight from BonzGirl.

This time of year, inevitably, is overwhelmed by spoilers. With the season finale less than 2 months away they do a great job teasing us to hype the excitement and build the tension.

People have a variety of interest in spoilers. You may only dip your toe in a little, you may watch all the interviews but nothing more, you may love Kristen and Ausiello, or you may go whole-hog and read every single bit of information available - every script page (casting side) or tidbit of gossip you can get your hands on.

The ultimate spoilers are those casting sides. They tell you exactly what is going to happen during the episode (though they can change and you only get glimpses of each scene they show) with the dialog, the case players (and sometimes the killer), and glimpses of interactions between our favorite characters thrown in.

That last part is why people read. Who really wants to spoil a case, right? But there's a lot of fun in seeing half a conversation between two characters that you know is probably one of 3 or 4 in the line during the episode (especially if it's Booth and Brennan talking) and speculating about motivations and content. Sometimes you can be right, sometimes you are waaaaaaay off, and sometimes those tricksie writers and actors change huge chunks before the show airs.

This post isn't to get people to read the sides. I stay almost completely away from them. But, it is interesting to find out how the rest of you view sides, and spoilers, in general.

The poll is for sides only, but it would be great to hear more about your spoiler views in general (about reading them ONLY - please do NOT put ANY actual spoilers into the comments here). Please drop a line in the comments here!

Do you read casting sides?

1. Never! They take away the excitement of the episode.
2. Rarely, because it's so easy to take them out of context.
3. Usually not, though as we get closer to the finale I might begin.
4. Sometimes, especially when there haven't been any good spoilers recently.
5. Usually. I'll need a good reason NOT to read 'em.
6. Are you kidding? I've already committed all of them to memory!
7. Sides? What's that?

TVGuide 411 talks to Michaela Conlin

I would call this a no-spoiler interview, up through 3:30. Stop it there if you don't like spoilers (though there's nothing new for those who read them).

They interview, for the most part, takes Angela through this last episode and the interviewer and Michaela guess at what might happen in her future.

Why is DB not on this list already?

E! Online has a list of the top 10 sexiest vampires not in Twilight, with #10 blank. But they left David Boreanaz's Angel off the list!

Check it out here, and voice your opinions in the comments about the grievous oversight.

2 hour Bones Season finale?

This is just projected, but maybe it will calm some fears.

The Futon Critic is listing the May 14th Bones as a 2 hour season finale. Hopefully, that's where the bumped hour lands (and there are no more pre-emptions!) and nothing will get moved to next season.

Thanks, Bonzgirl, for finding this!

(The only thing that makes me sad about that is that at 9pm both CSI and Grey's will be doing their Season Finales as well...ouch for the 9-10 ratings...)

In case you missed it, far from being the 2nd of 11 straight episodes, this is now the 2nd of 2 before American Idol (because of the President's speech, again, and Fox's redheaded stepchild mentality towards Bones) pre-empts the show once again next week.

~*~ ~*~ ~*~

For a bit of Bonesday fan talk...Have you seen this article about 'shippers'? It's not quite new, but I thought today might make a good day to talk about it.

I want to leave it up to you guys to dissect, but here's a quote from the article to get you started:
The shipper-oriented vision of romance, in which it's all nothing-nothing-nothing-BOOM! KISSING! has a tendency to devalue actually being happy in favor of being constantly stimulated by drama.
What do you think about that quote, the article in general, shippers, attitude toward shippers (esp if you are one)?

American Idol continues to trample on our Bones

As a couple of comments have posted...Bones is once again being pre-empted next week for American Idol (I paused about 30 seconds before typing those two words trying to think of an appropriate, but clean adjective, to describe my feelings for the monster that is AI and what keeps happening to Bones because of the show, but could think of nothing.

Good Q&A with Hart Hanson

I'm a little behind...I'm sorry!

Zap2It has a great little Q&A with Hart Hanson. There's some big spoiler talk in it about the season finale, but most of the article in spoiler-free.

Here are a few of the best non-spoiler parts:

Q: For such a bright woman, Brennan doesn't seem to be evolving much in her social skills. It is a source of comedy, but will she ever get significantly better?

A: What, you want to end the series? If you do, just say so.

Q: Will Angela's dad (played by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top) reappear?

A: Definitely.

Q: Are there other celebrities who'd like to be on the show,just waiting for the right script?

A: Yes, we've actually gotten to the point where people are asking to be on the show, who love the show and think it would be cool to come aboard. Perhaps because of Billy Gibbons, these include a number of rock stars. We will find ways to use the ones we like and dodge the ones we don't.

Q: How'd you manage to get the peripatetic Stephen Fry -- a prolific Twitterer and blogger -- to stand still long enough to do another "Bones"? What's he doing, and when should that air?

A: Stephen Fry loves doing "Bones." We found his availability months ago, within a four-day window, and confirmed with him that he'd be in the episode then. At that time, we had no idea what the story would be, but we knew it would be intermingled with a Sweets story. He did not disappoint.

He remains one of our favourite ([sic] Hart's from Canada.) recurring guest stars, and we (and he) hope to see more of him in the future. The episode he shot for us is called "Mayhem on the Cross" and should air in April. (HCTV: Perhaps April 2) All of England is on alert.

Q: Now that your dad has been on the show -- he played the cranky vending-machine man in last Thursday's episode, from whom Booth (Boreanaz also directed the episode) snatched a free snack -- are there any other Hansons out there that we might see soon?

A: No more Hansons. Dad was enough, thank you, and he's old and fairly easy to handle compared to the rest.

I love that they figured out when they could get Stephen Fry and then built the story around him! He's worth it :)

Organic Living with Emily Deschanel

Emily Deschanel is passionate about many things - from Veganism, to Animal Issues, to taking care of other women. The woman is a charity whirlwind!

She's also a big proponent of green living and the environment. Health.com has a Q&A with her about just that where she shares her passion, beliefs, and tips.

Q: Going green can get pricey. Have any favorite thrifty tips?
A: Buying used clothes is cheaper. And going to a farmers’ market is a lot cheaper than going to a pricier health-food market.
She also talks about her boyfriend, sister, and an interesting fascination with Ed Begley Jr.

TV Guide's Sexiest

TVGuide is about to release it's "Sexiest" issue, a yearly piece. Did you see David Boreanaz on Entertainment Tonight last night (sorry I didn't see the comment here in time to post it for all of you). There is a picture that you will all love...DB...wearing his socks...and holding a towel. It got special mention on the program. I guess he won his category, maybe? (Poll is closed and the final results appear in the March 30th magazine.)

Emily Deschanel is also getting a mention on the TVGuide website as one of the "Hottest" Doctors on TV. She comes in at #4:

Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel), Bones

All that smarty-pants science talk can't hide the fact that she's a total babe! Her partner Booth loves her unfiltered observations of the human condition — living and dead — but we bet he loves her fantastic smile and twinkly blue eyes even more.

King of the Lab - Screencap Trivia

I am way overdue for one of these!

Can you name the episode?

Comparing Bones to Moonlighting & The Thin Man

It's not unusual for Bones to be compared to other TV male/female pairings. Most often, this is Moonlighting because both shows are pretty heavy with UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension).

People who make these comparisons (even some prominent players in the show) keep asking if themselves, the creators, and the fans if getting Booth and Brennan together as a couple will instantly result in a Moonlighting Fiasco, which went downhill quickly once the main characters slept together. Some people think it might ruin the show, some other people think B&B would look like Nick and Nora, from The Thin Man Series, a married couple that seem to be bickering all the time, still showing a lot of love for each other and solving crimes in a special and funny way.

This is the question posed by Milky, after a discussion with ForensicMama. Milky has sent me a few videos to show how the interactions played out on Moonlighting and The Thin Man series, to help you judge for yourself.

So, feel free to comment away with your opinions. What do you think the fallout might be, if any, from such a pairing. Do you think the comparisons are fair?

Please, keep this post spoiler free so everyone can enjoy it!

Mandi Bierly talks to David Boreanaz about...a bit of everything!

Mandi Bierly took fan questions for David Boreanaz and now you can see the results!

For those of you who hate spoilers, well, um, they take a big chunk to talk about BB spoilers.....right in the middle!

Here are some of the questions from the beginning:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First of all, it's so funny that you just let it slip that you and your wife are expecting a second child on Regis & Kelly, because we had a number of readers ask if you hoped to add to your family [which includes six-year-old son Jaden]. N2SEELEYBOOTH went as far as to say that you need a daughter.
DAVID BOREANAZ: It's exciting. I think it's probably gonna be a girl. Girl energy. I'm done. [Laughs] It's all over. We'll know soon.

When is the baby due?
Well, the stork will be flying in a northeasterly direction somewhere in September area.

Is that for Jaden? Does he think there's a stork coming?
Jaden knows how it happens. I'm the one who's like, "Here comes the stork!"

This is one of my favorite questions: GLAD DALLAS IS T.O. FREE says, "David, the episode of Angel where you stepped behind the camera to direct involved scenes in a strip club. This episode heads in that direction as well. Coincidence, or directorial input?"
That was total coincidence. I got nothing more to say on that matter. I'm not gettin' in trouble. Next question. [Laughs]

I got to see a rough cut of the episode. How many takes for the lap dance?
You know what, the lap dance, how many takes did we do?... I don't remember. [Laughs] I gotta get off the stripper questions.

I find it hard to believe that you wouldn't remember a scene with Strawberry Lust. Or, "Miss Lust" as Booth calls her.
Was that her name? [Laughs] Next.

From there it moves into more questions about "The Bones that Foam," spoilers, and general talk about Bones, Booth, Castle and much more!

Ausiello on Cam's Turn

Ausiello has posted about the upcoming-Cam centric Bones episode. Definitely spoilers, but probably nothing new for the spoiler-lovers. Check it out here.

NY Post: 'Bones' to Pick

David Boreanaz was really busy yesterday in NY City - might as well be, if you're going to fly across the country, right?

If you aren't afraid of spoilers, check out this NY Post article/interview (it spoils through the end of the season, like most things right now!)

Thanks for the tip, Bonzgirl!

Cast Interviews: David Boreanaz Directing

I can't watch these right now to verify any level of spoiler content, but Jeannie was kind enough to send me a list of links to cast video interviews about David Boreanaz's Bones directorial episode tonight in "The Bones that Foam."

TJ Thyne
Emily Deschanel

Help out another Bones fan

A student, and fan of Bones, is looking for a little help from other fans. Zaheer needs to know if there is a site or article out there where the science of Bones has been thoroughly critiqued. Obviously, Kathy Reichs has oversight of every script, but then TV can change a lot of things between reality and what's presented on the screen. If anyone knows of any public article anywhere where this has been done, please post it in the comments!

Happy Bonesday!

Things get good now - 11 straight weeks of new Bones!


You lucky Canadians had the chance to see it early again (Hart Hanson conspiracy? :) ) but don't spoil us!

For those of you still waiting, like me, you can always rewatch Promo 1 and Promo 2 a few dozen times!

David Boreanaz on Regis & Kelly

Here is the full video of today's David Boreanaz on Regis & Kelly. Thanks, Lily, for the fast-draw find!

David Boreanaz on MyFoxNY

Here is a Youtube of the MyFoxNY interview with David Boreanaz from this morning. (spoiler warning) It's very cute!

Accepting Defeat: A non-shipper on Booth and Brennan

Jamie Frevele, my friend, and ardent Bones supporter (and ardently anti-BB romance) has posted a new piece at HuffingtonPost about Booth and Brennan. If you don't read spoilers, you will have to avoid it - it has season story spoilers - but it's a good piece (and always great to see Bones highlighted on a mainstream site) if you can read it.

Tidbit for the nonspoiler crowd, from Jamie, for this week's episdoe, re: Cameo spot (sort of a spoiler?):

*CAMEO: Hart Hanson tells me that the gentleman stocking the vending machine at the FBI is none other than his father! How cool is that?

David Boreanaz directing: Long video

Here is a long B-roll of the behind the scenes while David Boreanaz is directing this week's episode, "The Bones that Foam." Beware of episode spoilers as it covers scenes, dialog for the episode, and some summary!

Thanks, Helen, for finding this!

David on Regis and Kelly: Did you catch it?

Did you catch David Boreanaz on Regis and Kelly today? Did you hear his big news?

Apparently the baby-bump watch was serious....his gorgeous wife Jaime is expecting their 2nd child! Congratulations to the family and soon-to-be big brother, Jaden!

(Hopefully we'll see a video floating around soon.)

Behind the scenes of David Boreanaz directing Bones

Fox has put up a short but cute video of David Boreanaz directing Bones. It's a behind the scenes look, with plenty of comments from his cast-mates about what it was like. Enjoy!

Kristen tries to spoil on Bones (and promises better)

Kristen answers a beg for Bones scoop...with stuff that's well known in spoiler circles already. But she promises more...

Jessica in Millbrae, Calif.: Where's the Bones scoop you promised us?
Sorry, sorry! Just haven't had time to write it up yet, but to tide you over until we can get up the full post, the highlights are these:
And she then proceeds to outline what we already know. Think she will have something new, or will it be a new spin on the same information? Something unique would be nice!

Extreme Spoiler Chat: Beaver in the Otter

New sides are out. Here is place to concentrate all the heavy spoiler talk (ie the major stuff from the sides, that most fans do NOT read) for Beaver in the Otter. Feel free to post links in the comments, but I will keep the post free of them.

The point of this post is to keep the really heavy spoilers away from those who don't want to read them, not increase the spoiler focus here. Have fun!

Entire List of "Extreme Spoiler Chat" Posts

Reminder: David Boreanaz on Regis & Kelly

Just a reminder, as I mentioned last week, David Boreanaz will be appearing on Regis and Kelly tomorrow. Don't forget to set those DVRs!

Mandi Bierly asks: What do you want me to ask David Boreanaz?

Mandi Bierly of EW has an upcoming interview with David Boreanaz and is soliciting fan questions here. Submit by noon ET on Wednesday and she'll have the answers up on Thursday!

Episode Stills: The Doctor in the Den

Here are the promotional stills for the March 26th episode of Bones: "The Doctor in the Den."

The Alpha Male TV Contest

Kristen at E is running her own version of March Madness (might only makes sense to US fans): an Alpha Male tournament. Booth is in it!

Go ahead and vote for him here (he's in bracket 1.7), but don't forget about the contest! The way this works is just like any tournament - win one round game, you go on to the next. At each round, there are 1/2 as many games as losers are eliminated completely. That means that every week we have to go back and vote again to make sure Booth keeps going!

Thanks, Shep, for the tip.

The Bones that Foam: 2nd Promo

Here is the 2nd promo for "The Bones that Foam," which has been airing recently on Fox.



First promo

ASKFOX: The Schedule

Take this with a grain of salt (and a big thanks to Forensic Mama for going after it!) but the current schedule for most of the rest of the season, as given by ASKFOX, looks like this:

Thurs - 3/12 - "The Bones that Foam"
Thurs - 3/19 - "The Salt in the Wounds"
Thurs - 3/26 - "The Doctor in the Den"
Thurs - 4/02 - "The Science in the Physicist"
Thurs - 4/09 - "The Cinderella in the Cardboard"
Wed - 4/15 - "Mayhem on the Cross"
Thurs - 4/16 - "Double Death of the Dearly Departed"
Thurs - 4/23 - "The Girl in the Mask"
Thurs - 4/30, 5/07 & 5/14 (Finale) -TBA
So, yes, your eyes do not deceive you - there is a week in there with two new Bones episodes, on back to back nights! It also appears that, shockingly, the episodes are following production order! Dare we hope that fans finally got through on that one?

Episode Description: The Doctor in the Den

The episode description is out for the March 26th episode of Bones, "The Doctor in the Den."

Is it just me, or does anyone else scan the guest list for the new episodes in hopes of seeing a little Caroline or Max, or any other nice surprises? (I do see one other recurring name on this one I like!)

UST: Crime Solvers with Chemistry (and all that terrible waiting)

This article also has some fantastic kudos for Bones, but if you don't read spoilers you should pass it by (and probably stop right here!)

The NYTimes article is out to highlight Castle, which begins with Unresolved Sexual Tension as one of it's biggest highlights right off the bat, but it shines a big light on Bones as being cut from the same cloth:

“Bones,” which began in 2005, might be the current reigning champion for stretching out that tension. Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and her partner, F.B.I. Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz), examine dead bodies for clues and verbally pick at each other.
Check out the article for more, but again - SPOILER WARNING for the untouched! (nothing new, but still a great read, for those who follow all the spoilers)

Thanks, Carrie, for the tip!

NCIS blog mention praises Bones

Fedblog has a post about NCIS and it's portrayal of federal agents. Bones is not the focus, but it gets some nice kudos!
But for my money, the best show about federal employees on the air right now is Fox's Bones.
It goes on to explain exactly why Bones tops the list.

Thanks, Sherri!

Ausiello's Big Spoiler

Thank you for all the emails and comments about the Ausiello spoiler. I have just now gotten access as I've been in the hospital for some observation and fluids today. Bad timing!!

Check out the spoiler here.

Now talk away in the comment! (Again, sorry I couldn't post this before now.)

Ausiello Spoils: Zack

Now that's a name we haven't heard in awhile. He doesn't say much, and he doesn't even say it definitively, but what do you think about his tease?

David Boreanaz on Regis & Kelly

David Boreanaz will be on Regis & Kelly next Wednesday, March 11th.

TVGuide: Behind the Scenes

As a couple of people just pointed out, TVGuide Magazine's Youtube channel has a behind the scenes video of the David Boreanaz/Emily Deschanel photoshoot accompanying the article I mentioned earlier this week.

I am back and forth on the spoiler level warning for this one. There's no sound but a music track, but there are hints in the photos and setups if you look hard. (It's really hard to know the content of the article and objectively say "watch or not".)

I lean toward 'watch' - but have to add 'at your own risk!' ;) Stop it by 1:15 and you'll avoid the cover title caption even - those things always tease the brain!

Please, go to the article page to talk about the spoilers. Leave the comments here for people who just want to oh and ah about the photoshoot itself!



Edit: Looking at my email more closely - Sandra sent me an email about 30 minutes before I saw the comments. Thanks for the heads up!

Matt Mitovich spoils...stuff you probably already know

Matt Mitovich answers the cry for some Bones scoop with a bit about the finale, and a bit about Cam. If you read spoilers, I doubt either will be a surprise. Check it out here.

Behind the Scenes Photos of David Boreanaz directing Bones


Fox has posted a short series of behind the scenes photos of David Boreanaz directing Bones. Check out the set here.

Edit: Since people were having problems accessing the Fox gallery, here is the rest of the set. Images belong to Fox, as always!

TVGuide Article on the Season Finale

If you have been avoiding the spoiler talk for the season finale, this is NOT THE POST FOR YOU!

TvGuide has a great article and interview with both David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel about what's going on this season - at the end and beyond. You can read/see the scans here.

What do you think, spoiler addicts?

Thanks, Kim!

Edit: Go here for a great behind the scenes video of the photoshoot!

Kristen Spoils: A light spoiler

Kristen at E has a light spoiler about an upcoming episode (nothing to do with any character development of the cast - just something on the order of saying Double Trouble would involve the circus). You can check it out here, about half way down the page.

For those who don't want to be spoiled, here is something she tacked on to the end:

P.S. Got Q's for Bones bosses Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan? Email tvdiva@eonline.com, and we'll try to get you answers!
Sounds like a new interview in the works?
