After seven seasons and 129 episodes in the can, the FOX hit series Bones continues to have a large fan base. Many have different reasons why they love the show, including the chemistry between the cast members, and the fun stories that each episode features.
Recently, we spoke to Emily Deschanel who plays Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, and asked her why she thinks the show is successful after all these seasons.
My opinion: I think the success of the show the first 5 seasons was because of the chemistry between the characters and the humor. It sadly was missing for most of season 6. I think many fans (on the internet or not) hung onto hope that it would return to being the show they fell in love with in the first place. (And yes, I blame the Hannah storyline. She caused the storyline to neccesitate the lack of chemistry of the team because the center didn’t hold. I liked the Cam and Sully storylines, but Hannah was a flop.)
