Backstrom is the love child of Bones Creator Hart Hanson and criminologist and international best-selling novelist Lief Persson. Persson is the Kathy Reichs of criminologists so this was a natural fit for Hanson, a fit further confirmed by the masterful product the two men have delivered this past prime time season. The moment the news of this creative marriage broke I made a plaintive bid to my editors to give me the assignment. Thankfully, BuddyTV gave ther blessing and the rest is history.
These are the recaps and articles from season 1, hopefully soon to be added to by more from season 2.

Article: Bones‘ 200th Episode and Mid-Season Finale Recap: Brennan and Booth Shine as Hollywood Royalty
“The 200th in the 10th” is a veritable orgasm of giddy colorful entertainment that will go down in the annals of Bones history as one of the most enjoyable of all time in several Bones-y sub-categories. Visually stunning and masterfully scripted, Bones makes rolling the clock back seven decades look as easy as flipping a light switch.

The next important question they faced was how in the world they were going to amass all that minutia in the brief and sporadic moments they had between writing, directing, editing, staging, crafting, creating and promoting the nine episodes scheduled to air between the fall premiere and the 200th in December … (Read more)

Slideshow: The 33 Most Important Events in Booth and Brennan’s Journey
The chemistry was immediate and undeniable when Special Agent Seeley Booth sought out Forensic Anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan to help him with a seemingly unsolvable case. He was an alpha-egotistical maverick concerned only with catching the most nefarious criminals. She was a brilliant, arrogant and socially awkward pragmatist; a genius focused on finding facts and following protocol. Though well-suited for each other despite their differences, they allowed their pasts to keep them at a romantic distance bridged only by affectionate glances and tender words of love and support disguised as partnership gestures.
