This Netflix comedy won't be the end of their deal with Adam Sandler, though, with the comedian signing on for four more movies with Netflix. The streaming service claimed in a statement from last March that the first two movies of their Adam Sandler deal, the ensemble Western comedy The Ridiculous Six and the action-comedy The Do-Over, which reunited Sandler and David Spade, were the "biggest film releases" for Netflix,
Because Bones -- which was based on the life and works of real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs -- did more than just stay on the air, leapfrogging more than 20 different time slots in its 12-year run. In a television landscape populated with morose antiheroes and sarcastic protagonists that often poke fun at the earnestness of cops-and-science procedurals like Bones, sometimes directly by name (see: American Dad, Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers and more), the show was a champion of justice and evidence, science and guts, “brains and heart.” It told new stories every week, while at the same time unfolding its central characters little by little, making
From their first episode together, Brennan and Booth’s dynamic was electric, and while the will-they-or-won’t-they of it all took nearly seven seasons to sort out (more if you count that they don’t actually tie the knot until season nine), their relationship kept fans hooked for all 245 episodes. We watched Brennan wrestle with her feelings as Booth looked for love, saw them lay it all on the line only to yank it back again, and finally, at long last, got to witness their happy ending. Two kids and countless hurdles later, they’re still going strong.
So, as we
Bones set the stage for its series finale on Tuesday’s explosive penultimate episode, which, true to form for the long-running Fox procedural, combined the joy of a wedding with the terror of a killer on the loose. And everything ended with a bang.
The episode, titled “The Day in the Life,” flashed back and forward around the events of Cam (Tamara Taylor) and Arastoo’s (Pej Vahdat) reception, giving fans a chance to see the happy couple and all their friends and relatives -- Michelle! Felicia! Most of the old “squinterns!” -- celebrating their much-deserved bliss.
However, the honeymoon doesn’t last long, as the next morning Cam and Arastoo are summoned back to the Jeffersonian Institute’s Medico-Legal Lab, where, as Brennan (Emily Deschanel) puts it, “everything” has gone wrong.

John Hawkes can’t catch a break. When he nabbed the lead in Charlie Kaufman’s FX pilot — Charlie Kaufman — it didn’t get picked up. He landed an Oscar nomination for “The Sessions,” but his follow-ups have meant diddly-squat comparatively. Sure, he stole a few scenes in “Lincoln” and got to take part in Amy Schumer’s amazing sketch,
Brennan and Booth getting their grove on is only the beginning of the fun in Bones' sixth season 11 outing. The case has to do with politics and mining, which turns into a conversation about 'fracking' among the Jeffersonian crew, lending itself to all manner of interesting discussions.
Though there are many fine performances in this 202nd episode, three truly stand out. First, Jessica Warren (Laura Spencer), Brennan's somewhat overbearing squintern with the unsinkable confidence and spunky attitude, is delightful without being gloaty as Brennan's Twitter mentor. Second, Aubrey (John Boyd), the cakeable junior FBI agent with a reputation for being just shy of obnoxiously accusatory in the interrogation room (and damn, he's good at it), shows extraordinary compassion toward a young man who is willing to risk everything to provide for his younger brother. And finally, this episode's Mvp, Ausa Caroline Julian (Patricia Belcher
