Bones is centered around a forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperence Brennan, nicknamed "Bones." She's rather cynincal and not exactly in tune with pop culture or current events of any kind. She spends all of her time in the lab.
Dr. Brennan works at the Jeffersonian Institute in the nation's capitol.
She works alongside ex-Army Ranger turned and Special Agent Seeley Booth to help the FBI solve crimes. Together, these two identify human remains that are too far gone for standard FBI forensic investigations. They get to the bottom of murders in just such an unusual fashion, fixing science with basic investigating.
Booth and Bones are also overflowing with sexual tension, adding a fun subtext to the crime of the week.
Show stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz.
