    I am so tired of them canceling great shows. I love bone as does many other people, it’s a shame how they cancel great shows and leave up the not so great. Just like “Bad Judge”, I really liked that show and “Unforgetable” They canceled them before they ended, And that is just the beginning of great ones to be canceled. They wheel you in just to disappoint you. This is 1 reason I won’t get cable or have no tv. I bought the series of “Bones” and others, just no reason liking a show because they are going to just take it away from you as soon as you get into it.

    Bones is. Loved by everyone in my family we been watching them from thee begining and you better not cancel the show it should be renewed for many seasons to come

    Bones is ridiculous, and jumped the shark on the first episode. What is with all the brainy people acting like emotionless robots?!? Either Emily Deschanel is a crappy actress, unable to act; or she is a fantastic actress, portraying a character with no personality. Which is it?

    Sweets leaving was a blow to the show. The new FBI guy is just not working out ! Bones is not out in the field enough with Booth since the new guy started. I think Sweets being undercover and coming back could be worked out… he was the glue that kept the team together !! Why wasn’t Russ and family or Jarred at the wedding? I know this has been awhile ago but it was strange. Why is Russ and family, Jarred and Parker never on the show anymore ? Not even when the baby was born !! Booth would never forget Parker like this !! Writers get it together please !!

    Bones has been one of mine and mine family’s favorite shows. My mom and even my little sister (aged 6) were all interested and watched it with me on a weekly basis, it became like a tradition to spend the 8-11 hours watching TV shows. Even though we watch numerous other shows like NCIS, Law and Order:SVU just to name a few we always catch Bones or at least record it to watch it later. I hate though how the promotion and the companies make the winter break last longer than it does for most other shows. I watched every single episode and loved them all. It’s a great show that grips the viewers of all ages, and I would hate for FOX to cancel it before its time is up. However, it sucks that they got rid of Sweets (even though he left the show to direct another movie it was I believe) he was awesome and now he can’t be bought back.

    Bones is my favorite show . It has both intrigue and comedy. I think the whole cast is excellent. I just wish you could work Sweets back into the show. I think letting him go was a big mistake. Maybe he could have been away working undercover.

    I have wondered why Bones hadn’t shown any episodes since last December and a from other comments made, I see why. FOX has several other shows that I faithfully watch, but Bones has been my favorite since its inception. If the writers are running out of story lines, just ask some of the fans for ideas. Surely they can look up some of the more interesting forensic mysteries in our nations archives? Has Kathy Reichs left as a consultant? I see that PERCEPTION as been cancelled after this season and that was another one of my favorite FOX shows as well. Leave well enough alone is my advice!!!
