I've read just about all of Kathy Reich's books. They really are very good and well worth checking out (though a bit gruesome in places). I understand the TV is not based of the books at all. Temperance Brennan is based on Kathy Reichs, who really is a forensic anthropologist. She knows what she's talking about. ;)

After reading your bio, chili, I've come to the conclusion that VW camper vans look really cheerful. :lol:

Loooooove it! :D And what Tony says is true, the series is not based on the books but on the author (so Temperence Brennan is a best-selling novelist in the series). What I like most about it is her character. She's an analphabete when it comes to social behaviour, but she's really good in what she's doing, professionnally. But since she spends 99% of her time in her lab and with long-dead people, she has basically no idea of the outside world, and up-to-date stuff, which is always a source of humour... For example, her partner was talking about how much he liked Led Zeppelin, and she never even heard of it... "My publisher offered me tickets, but when I heard Zeppelin I thought it was for some sort of air show." :lol:

Sorry for the enthousiasm.
