Maybe it's time to leave gracefully, this has gone on too long, out of ideas.

I have to admit although I've loved this show since episode one I sort of feel they've lost the spark along the way ... I guess they made the right choice when they decided to end it with season 12, it might be time! Anyway I'm gonna miss my weekly dose of Booth and Brennan and the rest of the squints :)

why is this show still airing.

avatar

I hate this show since I saw season 7

avatar

They killed of Sweets? omg, this is too painful to watch!

avatar

great show! sometimes it drags a little bit, but it's great nonetheless .. I had hoped for some 'hotter' scenes between bones and booth, but in stead she just tells him she's pregnant and then they suddenly live together .. talk about an anti-climax .. I miss the sexual tension between them

Brilliant, kickass, strong yet vulnerable female characters with total ownership of their sexuality? Sign me the hell up. Plus, David Boreanaz is dreamy.

Bones is the best show ever !! I love all seasons !!

This whole Pelant storyline in season 8 is dragging the series down so much, they should just get it over with. We already have one series with an invincible criminal, his endless supply of followers and powerless hero team. That's not what this series is about.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
