Bones - Season 4

From executive producers Hart Hanson, Barry Josephson and Stephen Nathan comes the fourth exciting season of BONES, a darkly amusing procedural with humor, heart and character, inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs. Dr. Temperance Brennan is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC, and writes novels as a sideline. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless-when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed that CSI gives up-law enforcement calls in Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim's bones. Most law enforcement can't handle Brennan's intelligence, her drive for the truth, or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation. Special Agent Seeley Booth of the FBI's Homicide Investigations Unit is the exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists-the "squints," as he calls them--who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan's scientific acumen makes them a formidable team.
