I watched this new show without much knowledge about it. Only that David Boreanaz was playing the male lead, who which we had grown to love from his role in Buffy and the spin off self titled series Angel.

The episode was extremely well paced, introducing the characters and their backgrounds while solving the case at hand. Music played a major role as well throughout the episode giving an extra dimension to the visuals. I particularly enjoyed the montage of Bones piecing together the skull. All of the actors are extremely believable in their roles. I only have one minor issue which is the fact that Agent Booth's background as a sniper just doesn't fit with his personality. He displays no characteristics of a heartless killer. Which we know Boreanaz can portray as he has shown his darker side on Buffy many times before.

Its great that the importance of the characters shared equal air time as introducing and giving depth to the characters. If the show can continue to do this and not have us just focusing on cases each week I think Bones will fast become one of my favourites television shows this year.
