 PTC Summary:

BONES

Fox/Drama

8:00 p.m. (ET) Monday

Production Companies: 20th Century Fox Television
Producers: Barry Josephson, Hart Hanson
Creator: Hart Hanson

Now in its tenth 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 work with FBI agent Seeley Booth to solve the most difficult crimes through state of the art science and good old-fashioned gumshoeing.

Violence is frequent and extreme. Each episode begins with the discovery of a dead body, usually in the goriest, most unusual 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.” 

Bones
is not recommended for viewers under age 18.
