Just become the proud parent of the Bones S1-S6 boxset.

I really only wanted S6!! :oops:

I've got 1 and 2 somewhere, and a mate recorded the rest for me from Sky, but he seems to have dropped off the radar.

At least there's extras on these ones!!

It's not quite the same as the Brennan books by KR.

She says at the back of one of the books that this show is set before Brennan takes the job in Canada.

They've left a lot out of it - she still has an ex-husband, but there's no grown up daughter, and no dog/cat thing.

Yeah - I've seen an interview with her where she talks about it. I think it's more a sort of alternative reality Brennan. :wink:

Exactly!

Funnily enough, I know several people who love the books, but hate the TV show.

The same with Monk. Detest the show, but love the books. :lol:

I love her books. Wouldn't say I hate the show (it does include David Boreanaz after all :wink: ) but I don't watch it much either.
I think TV Brennan is pretty annoying actually.
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

After having watched S5 and S6 over the weekend (and have started from the beginning again!) I can honestly say that TV Brennan needs a damn good slapping.

I was somewhat tearful at the end of S6. :(
