“You know, this is our first Christmas as a couple.”

“Aw, too bad Santa’s dead.”

Dr Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Special Agent Sealy Booth (David Boreanaz) return to solve another season of bone-chlling (pun-intended) mysteries.

I became a quick fan of the show enjoying not only the mystery of the week but the chemistry of the cast.  This season includes the deepening of Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and Angela’s (Michaela Conlin) relationship, the search for Angela’s long lost husband, a new cannibal serial killer, the murder of Santa Claus, a Halloween adventure with real skeletons, and the poor decision making of Zack (Eric Millegan).

Although short (the season only includes 15 episodes due to the writer’s strike) there’s plenty here worthy of your attention including the trial of Brennan’s father in “The Verdict in the Story” (which you can watch below) and what might be my favorite episode of the series “The Santa in the Slush” where all the evidence points to dead man in a Santa suit being, well, Santa Claus (he was even once kicked by a reindeer!)

Although this probably isn’t the best season of the show it does include some of the most memorable episodes and a fair amount of extras (though nothing extra-special).  Fans of the show should enjoy this third entry and I’d encourage anyone who enjoys CSI-style shows to give Bones a chance.
