"Bones" review by Suzanne
Premieres Monday September 17 on FOX

Those of us who have been big fans of the show since it started are always glad to have it back. Now that it's a bonafide hit for FOX, we don't have to worry as much as we used to about how many years it has left. Still, it's getting a bit long in the tooth now, so I do wonder how many seasons it has left before they really run out of ideas, or the actors get sick of doing it, or fans move on to something else, or FOX decides it just costs too much

Bones started out as a sort of quirky version of CSI, but it quickly became clear that the characters are more important than the story. The A story about what's going on with Booth, Bones, and the others is always way more interesting than whatever the B story is (the murder they have to solve). In that sense, it's similar to NCIS, which is always better when it focuses on the characters rather than their case.

At the end of last season, Booth had to break off his engagement to Bones, and he couldn't tell her why (because Pelant threatened to kill more people if he didn't).  So this season, especially in the first episode, we get to see the fall-out from that. Temperance is very hurt and upset, and the other people she works with are not too pleased with Booth, either.  After a lot of soul-searching, Temperance and Seeley do come to a good agreement at the end of this episode.

Yes, there was a murder, and it was kind of interesting because it led us to a new CIA character, played by Freddie Prinze, Jr.  Also, Booth confides in an old bartender friend (who used to be a priest in the army with him).   The only part of the episode I didn't like was Daisy. Can't Pelant kill her off? She is so annoying.

I can't wait to see what else is in store for everyone this season!

"The Secrets in the Proposal"

THE TEAM INVESTIGATES REMAINS FOUND IN AN AIR CONDITIONING UNIT ON THE ALL-NEW SEASON NINE PREMIERE OF “BONES” MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, ON FOX

MON SEP 16 8/7c

In the season premiere of BONES, the Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of Jason Siedel, an accountant for the state department, whose remains were found in a hotel air conditioning unit. When Booth finds his old army buddy and CIA agent, Danny Beck (guest star Freddie Prinze, Jr.), clearing away evidence at the victim’s condo, he begins to realize that Siedel’s murder could yield more suspects than the team had anticipated. Booth also seeks out Aldo Clemens (guest star Mather Zickel), his friend and an ex-priest from their military days together, to get advice on his relationship with Brennan, now that Pelant has put a wedge between them. Meanwhile, Brennan must decide whether to have faith in Booth or to end her relationship with him in the all-new “The Secrets in the Proposal” season premiere episode of BONES airing Monday, Sept. 16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
