Now in its ninth season, Bones is a crime drama based on the real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist, Kathy Reichs. “Bones” is the nickname of Dr. Temperance Brennan, who works as a forensic anthropologist at the Jeffersonian Institution in Washington D.C. Dr. Brennan and her team of scientists team up with FBI agent Seeley Booth to solve the most difficult crimes through state of the art science and good old-fashioned gumshoeing.
Violence – particularly the aftermath of it – is consistently shown. In fact, each episode begins with the discovery of a dead body, usually in the goriest, most novel ways imaginable. Sex is also a frequent topic of discussion. Most of the cases involve sex as a motive for murder, and Brennan and her team often have very frank – though very clinical – discussions of sex. Occasionally, sex is depicted or certain cases might expose sexual fetishes or provocative subcultures. Language frequently includes uses of “hell,” “damn,” and “son-of-a-bitch.”
