Developing the doctor
9 July 2016 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Dr. Temperance Brennan is seen for the first time in this episode. She's a bit different from the one later in the show. She seems more emotional and personable. I think I like her better this way, but understand why they developed the character the other way.

In this episode, Seeley Booth announces that he had worked with Bones before - we'll see that in a later episode (Season 5) as they tell the story of how they met. (I LOVED that episode!!!)

You can tell the characters are loosely developed. This episode got me interested in watching the rest, and it's become one of my favorite shows. Booth and Bones have chemistry from this beginning episode, and it only grows over the years.

Excellent!
