Bones - Season 8
The eighth season of the American television series Bones premiered on September 17, 2012, and concluded on April 29, 2013, on Fox. The show maintained its previous time slot, airing on Mondays at 8:00 pm ET, and consists of 24 episodes.
Bones - Season 8
The series was renewed for an eighth season on March 29, 2012. Executive producer Stephen Nathan commented that season eight would include storylines that were originally intended for the previous season but could not be used then due to its reduced episode count. Twenty-two episodes were produced during season eight, with the extra four episodes ordered by Fox for the previous season incorporated into season eight, making a total of 26 episodes. In March 2013, it was reported that only 24 of the 26 episodes would air in season eight, as the two other episodes would be filmed after the season eight finale, and would be aired during the beginning of the ninth season. Series creator Hart Hanson believes the show could last another two seasons (seasons 9 and 10), saying "we're very, very confident in having at least a season 9, and I can see as far as season 10 before my eyes get misty."
Season 8 has 24 episodes. There were 20 ordered, but then the 4 episodes they filmed for Season 7 and never aired will show in the new season. These bonus episodes are called "The Gunk in the Garage", "The Patriot in the Purgatory", "The But in the Joke", and "The Ghost in the Machine".
This isn't the show's first time around the block when it comes to moving between dreams and reality, but up until now that territory has belonged solely to Booth (David Boreanaz). He is the religious one of the pair and over the course of 8 seasons has had near-death encounters ranging from hockey with Luc Robitaille to a deadly romp in a submarine with his dead army buddy. And there was the time he slipped into a coma and constructed an entire alternate reality around Brennan in which they were married and expecting a child long before they'd faced their true feelings about one another.
As for the other, non-Brennan, parts of the episode they are equally well-written and well acted. Clark (Eugene Byrd) is the correct fit in terms of interns for this episode and the rest of the ensemble shines as well. The scenes between Brennan and her mother are rivaled only by those between Brennan and her father, and the chemistry between Deschanel and Boreanaz has never been better. The case itself is somewhat reminiscent of season 3's "Intern in the Incinerator" and season 5's "A Night at the Bones Museum," but with enough differences that the concept isn't wholly cheapened. All in all a solid outing for the veteran show and a good way to open up new avenues for character growth.
More importantly, in the middle of their investigation and after eight seasons of back-and -forths, Bones (Emily Deschanel) finally decides to propose Booth. Here is their very sweet conversation, prompted by a gift of jerky from Temperance to Seeley, in all of its unedited glory.
Brennan notices some perimortem bone bruising on the frontal and zygomatic bones of Sarah's face. Angela figures out that she likely hit a pointed trailblaze, and Hodgins and Edison realize that she likely fell or was thrown off a sharp drop onto the rocky oceanfront. They also find in the satellite imagery what they think might be a Viking settlement.
Bones fans, can you guess which episode from season eight was David Boreanaz's favorite? If you can, then you are some sort of Boreanaz superfan (or stalker). If you can't guess, then we have a special treat for you. In this exclusive video starring the Bones cast, Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel and the rest talk about their favorite moments and episodes from season eight. Did your favorite scene make the list? Among the top choices were the episodes where Bones and Booth had to learn how to ballroom dance, Booth getting slimed, Sweets (John Francis Daley) in nothing but a towel, and Bones running for president.
I think we all have ways we come at BONES and what we want to have happen, and so much of that is why I have mixed feelings on this episode. I remember back in season 5, when B&B were so crushed after the 100th episode. It was just incredibly sad, but I was willing to trust the writers to make it right.
We tend think of our bones as just the scaffolding that holds us together, but they also protect our vital organs. And as we age, we need to continue getting calcium and to exercise to keep our bones healthy.
Calcium is the obvious and most important nutrient in building strong bones. Good sources are dairy foods such as yogurt, skim milk, cheese and cottage cheese, as well as spinach, collards, oranges, canned salmon, nuts, beans and peas.
Past 50, our bodies become less adept at absorbing vitamin D. Other groups at risk for reduced vitamin D absorption are people in northern climes where there is less seasonal sunshine and those with high skin pigmentation (particularly people of African descent). For these three groups in particular, attention to diet and supplementation becomes crucial.
Some bone-density machines measure hip, spine and whole body, and others are designed to measure peripheral bones such as wrist, finger, shinbone and the heel of the foot. They typically require only that you lie or sit down, depending on the type of machine recommended for you.
"After more than 150 episodes, Bones continues to be one of television's most dynamic and consistent dramas," says Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly, who announced the pick-up on Tuesday morning during the Television Critics Association's winter press tour. "We at Fox, along with millions of zealous fans, look forward to seeing were the incredible creative team takes the series next season." 041b061a72
