New Procedural 'Bones' To Premiere Tonight

One of the most anticipated new shows of the 2005-2006 season, Bones, is set to premiere tonight on Fox.

The new drama revolves around the work of forensic anthropologist Temperance Booth, who balances her time between analyzing skeletal remains to solve crimes and writing mystery novels. Her partner, Det. Seeley Booth, is a no-nonsense FBI agent who believes scientists do not belong in crime scenes. Bones stars Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, and one-time CSI guest-star T.J. Thyne.

Boreanaz recently described his character to Zap2It. "Booth's very black and white. He believes that all men are created equal. He's a public-school guy, doesn't believe in private school. He doesn't think people should be catered to. He goes with his gut. His instincts are 100 percent correct, or so he may think."

Bones has been labeled as a procedural drama, and while critics have described the show as a mix between CSI and The X-Files, creator Hart Hanson sees the show as, "a little bit of the Moonlighting thing. We would like a little bit of the Thin Man thing."

The show's mix of drama and comedy already has critics calling it one of the season's best shots. "We all know there are too many crime procedurals on the air. But while most of those shows are grim and moody, Bones doesn't take itself that seriously," said Kevin D. Thompson of the Times Argus. "That Bones doesn't rely on dramatic lighting or sick, twisted crimes to grab an audience is quite refreshing."

Bones premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on Fox. Visit the show's official website to learn more about it.
