This television series is like the forensic/FBI version of The Odd Couple. Dr. Temperance Brennan (played by Emily Deschanel) is a brilliant forensic anthropologist who has little social skills and always goes towards logic over intuition or feelings. She works on cases with FBI Special Agent Steeley Booth (played by David Boreanaz), who doesn't trust science and sticks to what his gut is telling him. They seem like an unlikely pair but, trust me, they work well together.
Supported by colleagues: artist Angela Montenegro (played by Michaela Conlin), young genius Dr. Zack Addy (played by Eric Millegan), bug expert Dr. Jack Hadgins (played by T.J. Thyne), coroner Dr. Camille Saroyan (played by Tamara Taylor), and therapist Dr. Lance Sweets (played by John Francis Daley), their whole world is crime scenes, killers, clues, and murder investigations. They are a crack team who always catch their man.
