Bones is Unique, in a sea of procedurals (Article)

Thanks to Shep for pointing this one out!

Eye Weekly had done a piece on procedurals. It talks about everything but Bones...until then end.

But there’s one smart-people procedural that offers more than simplistic storylines. Bones, about forensic anthropologist Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and beefy FBI agent Booth (David Boreanaz), has evolved over four seasons into a delight because the crimes take a back seat to the characters. Knowing murder cases can be repetitive — though last week’s dead conjoined circus twins was indeed an odd duck — Bones focuses its energies on the chemistry between its immensely likeable leads and strong supporting cast (including Freaks and Geeks’ John Francis Daley), hiring fun guest stars (Stephen Fry, Andy Richter) and, egads, even occasionally showing a life outside the office.
We already knew Bones was the best, but it's nice to see comparative articles agree!
