TVGuide isn't the only one talking to Hart Hanson...

Stop reading this post now if you haven't been following the Season Finale Spoiler post and associated comments.

You've been warned.




Sofi found a Mexican site that has an article/interview with Hart Hanson. So far, I just have the best part, below, but she has volunteered to translate the entire interview as well. I will post that when I have it.

But as for the good part....

The also executive producer explained the actors, and specially Emily, that those "adjustments" are necessary so that the viewers are still hooked by their characters relationship.

"I mean, if they are going to end up in bed naked, there's always a chance that a certain someone could end up pregnant, right?," said Hanson.
I told you not to read if you didn't want to be spoiled! (I feel so Grover, in The Monster at the End of this Book.)

What do you think about that tidbit, in relation to what he told TVGuide about the finale? Interesting...


Here is the entire translation. Thanks, Sofi!

Love is born from the dead

“Bones” airs Tuesday’s at 10 pm on Fox.
Emily Deschanel hopes that the romance between Brennan and Booth doesn’t mean the end of ‘Bones’.

LOS ANGELES, United States.- In the middle of the intrigue and smell of death, the relationship between Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) became hotter on it’s fourth season.

Already from the begining of the show, the writer Hart Hanson and the stars of the show recognized that the attraction between Brennan and Booth could explode in any moment..

“There are two things that I said I’d to do this year: one of them that they will be on a bed together, naked…you know a hot stuff,” revealed Hanson between laughs.

“The other one is that she will ask him to consider being the father of her child.”

The also executive producer explained the actors, and specially Emily, that those "adjustments" are necessary so that the viewers are still hooked by their characters relationship.

That’s why, the creator told us the possibility that the doctor could get pregnant.

"I mean, if they are going to end up in bed naked, there's always a chance that a certain someone could end up pregnant, right?," said Hanson.

Not so long ago he thought that the show wouldn’t get to it’s fourth season, but now that they achieved that goal, the producer knows that he has to lay out attractive situations for the viewers.

“Since the first season I been asked, ‘when are they going to be together?’ And I thought, ‘I don’t have to worry about that. We are going to get cancelled.”

“But now we have to embrace that. And it’s tough, because that not-consumated-love-vibe worked really well, and if you take that out, then you better have something better to replace it!”

And that’s because, in opinion to Hanson, tv shows haven’t been too kind with romantic relationships, as they always end up turning to something negative.

“That’s why we’ll try to push their consumation as long as we can. Then we’ll search for a funny and creative way to deal with it. I just hope that they don’t end up hating each other, as it happened on Moonlight. But I know that won’t happen.”

To Emily Deschanel it seems logical for Brennan and Booth to tie their bonds, but she can’t imagine how will the writers do to make them lower their guards and give in to that romance.

“However, I think that when that happens it could mean the end. And that’s not good, and it’s a worry for all of us; so, we have to be very careful,” pointed the actress.


* Emily’s sister, Zooey, will join the show for one episode this season as a guest star.
* David Boreanaz directed the episode “The Bone That Foams.”
* Deschanel said that her character will show a little bit more of her real personality and she will become more social.

Two Spanish Articles on Bones

First, we got Pascale for French translations, now Sofi has volunteered to be our resident Spanish-language translator - it is much appreciated!

Here are two new articles from Latin America, where the 4th season of Bones is now beginning to air.

Investigations and lab love
Tonight starts the fourth season of the police show, inspired on the life of writer Kathy Reichs.

The new season of Bones will arrive with a double episode, at 10 pm, on Fox, with “some weird things and new characters that will add some new dynamics” in each episode. That’s how Hart Hanson, creator of the show, summed it up with enthusiasm during a telephonic interview with LA NACION.

Between the challenges proposed by the writers of the show centered on a group of specialists that solve murders on a very similar institution like the Smithsonian, there’s the one of “bringing Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) closer, showing them together, for example, naked in bed,” said Hanson as a tease to the Bones’ fans, inspired on the life of novelist and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, “who reads all the scripts and give us her feedback,” he explains.

Although he clearly said, between laughs, that he wouldn’t reveal “what happens after” the long awaited encounter between the two of them, he added that “we will see Brennan asking the detective if he would be willing to be the father to her child.” The perfect hook for all viewers.

The new season of the show will bring “some changes to the relationship of Angela (Michaela Conlin) and Hodgins (TJ Thyne),” said Hanson. He also detailed that “some good stories will come out with a group of rotative interns” on the Jeffersonian’s lab, and added that “some weird things” will be incorporated, “to see how does the audience reacts.”

Between the guest stars, Hanson said that the british actor Stephen Fry will come back to portrait the FBI phsychologist and Ryan O’Neal will come back to the story as the father of Dr. Brennan, and Angela’s father will be ZZ Top’s singer, Billy Gibbons.

To build the story

About the attractive that the show has to his viewers, Hanson analized that “it plays with a lot of elements: the trick on Bones is to keep the balance between the characters, the crime story and the comedy elements.”

When asked about the building of the scripts and the construction of the various cases, Hanson expressed that they count with two people “that make some previous investigation.” Besides, a forensic professional guide the actors on “what’s the meaning of everything and how they have to say it.” In this season the serial killer from last season will not come back, but instead, the analitic kidnapper know as Gravedigger “will take one of them,” said Hanson.

“It’s very difficult to avoid the repetition of the cases –he confessed-, because we are on the fourth season, and the writers have to be very careful of whether a body was found on a certain position, the dialogues, the jokes that were already made, all the secuencies? We have to be on alert or the show could become old,” he concluded.

With everything, to Hanson “the most difficult part of the show is to move forward the relationship between Brennan and Booth, but not too fast.” The gratest challenge “is to keep up the interest of the audience, but not to let them feel frustated because they take too long to be together.”

On Bones and letters
At 10 pm, will start the fourth season of the show that recreates the life of a novelist forensic anthropologist.

Tonight at 10 pm, Fox will premiere the fourth season of Bones, the tv show lead by Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz, inspired by the real life of forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs. On an exception, tonight, the two first episodes will be together.

Dr. Temperance Brennan (Deschanel) is a forensic anthropologist, highly trained, that works on an Institute at Washington DC and, also, writes novels. When the traditional methods to ID bodies don’t work out, justice relies on her, as she counts with a special hability to “read the clues” left on the victim’s bones.

Most of the agents can’t deal with her intelligence at the time of facing an investigation, but Agent Seeley Booth (Boreanaz) from the Homicide Investigation Unit of the FBI made next to her a “great team.”

On the start of this fourth season we’ll see Brennan and Booth working on a dark case happening in London: together, as an invincible team, they will help clear up the murder of a young hearess.

John Francis Daley: Conference Call Details

A few days ago, we talked about how John Francis Daley would be doing a conference call with media. Here's one of the first interviews to come out of that. He talks about Bones, his character, both Sweets and his own childhoods, and some of his 'special skills' he hopes to work into his character.

Daley also wouldn't mind exploring some of the things he does in real life -- kung fu and playing the piano. The martial arts could potentially come in handy since Sweets will get to join in on some of the Scooby gang adventures in the future.

Daley: "It's been awhile since I practiced (kung fu), but I think it's like riding a bike -- you can become a killing machine again."

Be warned about spoilers for the next few episodes. And thanks to Pascale for the heads up about this particular piece!
