Bones, Full Panel - #SDCC 2014
They are actually
Hmm, well I’m not really a fan of picking favourites (because I suck at it) and I think it’s hard to compare seasons because they all have a different vibe to them-it’s a different stage in Booth and Brennan’s (and the rest of the team’s) relationship.
But I will say that Season 9 is my favourite season because it was the most consistent for me. I can pretty much watch most of the episodes without any major issues. And S3 is my fave pre-hookup season. Again, it’s a pretty consistent season for me (probably helped by the fact there are less episodes than usual).
And then ranking the other seasons after that it is really difficult for me. I can’t say I completely loved S5 because I didn’t (in fact I have some major issues with S5 /ducks/) and likewise, I didn’t completely hate S6. In fact, episodes 6x14 onwards is a fave period of mine when it comes to BB’s storyline. S1 was great and it’s so fun to watch baby! BB but S2 is really hit and miss. There’s only a handful of S2 episodes I really like. S4 and S8 were overall pretty good ones. And while S7 imo definitely wasn’t a particularly strong season overall (in terms of every facet of the storytelling ie cases), it was GREAT for BB baby fluffiness! And I adore S7 for that.
And I much prefer re-watching S7-9. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the older seasons. But watching BB be happy together is so much more compelling and enjoyable to me. And for me, the show is better than ever before right now.
This is probably longer than you expected, but yeah, lol
I know this may sound totally crazy to some people, but I’ve been a fan of Bones for 7 years. A big fan, I’ve watched other shows over the years, but Bones has always been the top show for me and during this time I’ve seen every episode many times.
What I’m trying to get at is that I constantly want to watch the show, and not just new episodes but all of the show. I’ve watched all seasons every summer, I’ve watched my favourite episodes even more times and I want to re-watch it again this year, to see the story of the show so far as a whole.
And the thing is, it never gets boring. Yes, I know all the storylines, all the cases, but I never get bored when I’m watching it again and I always want more. Sometimes when I watch other shows, in my head I’m thinking “I wish I was watching Bones instead”, even if I like the show, I will always prefer Bones before anything else. I have shows I watched twice, or plan to watch for the second time, but that’s it and there are definitely shows I enjoyed when watching them but don’t feel like watching again ever.
Like I said, I know it may seem insane (for example, my sister doesn’t usually watch anything twice, because she says “I know what happened, I know how it ends, why should I watch it again?) but that tells you how I feel about the show. It has helped me through bad times, it helps me to stay strong and believe in the future. And it may be a sad comment on my life, but I swear, when bad things happen, when I feel like the world is a horrible place, Bones is what helps me.
When season 4 was on, I was first year in High School, I never imagined that all those years later I would still have the show, but I’m so grateful that it is still around and I adore the cast so much and everyone for doing this amazing show, and making me believe that life is worth it and that one day things will change, and I’ll be happy.
I could watch Emily and David talk about anything and everything ALL DAY LONG.
Like character, like actress. ;)
It could die happy right now, because Emily and David
Your hypothesis is that squints don’t solve murders and cops do.

David: It’s a pleasure to be able to sit next to somebody for 7 seasons and be so fortunate to be a part of a show that FOX has given us an opportunity to really enjoy the show and to be able to work day in and day out with someone like Emily is being a blessing. So, thank you!
Emily: Aww.. Oh my God! It’s incredible to work with someone who you get along with and be friends with and you still get along with after so long
David: I know
