Bones - Season 5

Inspired by the real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs, Bones is a darkly amusing drama centered on Dr. Temperance Brennan and FBI Special Agent Seely Booth.

While Booth endeavors to come to grips with their unleashed emotions, Brennan insists the two of them focus their attention and energy on their main job: catching murderers that no one else can catch.
