Review:

"Bones: The Complete Sixth Season" opens seven months after the fifth season closed. Our Jeffersonian heroes are spread all over the world, each moving into their own separate lives after the departure of Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) to an archaeological dig. Along with her, she has Daisy (Carla Gallo, arguably one of the most annoying characters ever created for this show), the squintern. FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanez) is in Afghanistan, working with the Army Rangers towards peace. Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin) are spending their honeymoon year in Paris, while Dr. Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley), having taken a sabbatical from his position as an FBI psychologist plays the piano. But it is the trouble of their former leader, Camille Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), that brings them all home. Cam is now working as a federal coroner, but she is unable to identify a young boy's remains as those of a missing child. To save her job, the team must band together and do what they do best. This unity is what convinces Brennan to stay in Washington, D.C.***

After their emotional departure, the one question left unanswered was about Brennan and Booth's relationship. As Brennan struggles to reconcile her feelings for her partner, his new love, Heather (Katheryn Winnick) comes riding in. The triangle created causes most of the emotional tension throughout the show. Those rooting for Brennan and Booth to finally make it work will have to wait until the end of the season for that answer. As much as I want to throw it in, I just can't give away that part!***

"Bones: The Complete Sixth Season" also sees the return of the sustained story arch-villain in the form of Jacob Broadsky (Arnold Vosloo, proving his skills as one of today's most versatile actors), a former Army sniper who trained Booth. He is designed as the ultimate anti-Booth (show creator, Hart Hanson, compared this to season three's Gormogon, who was considered the anti-Brennan) and his episodes tend to be the strongest of the season.***

Special Features:

The one disappointment on this Blu-ray release is the low amount of special features. While it is basically the same amount as usually presented on the season releases, sometimes less really is less. There are two audio commentary tracks presented: one with the creators and the other with Deschanel and Boreanaz. They are really fall middle of the road, not spectacular and not disappointing. "The Blackout in the Blizzard" is a short behind-the scenes featurette that takes a look at the filming of it's namesake. "The Visual Effects of Bones" is an interesting look at all the work that goes into making the cadavers, body parts and other goop that "Bones" is so famous for.***

Final Words:

"Bones: The Complete Sixth Season" is everything you'd expect from a show called "Bones": great, gory and still going strong.
