About the Show
From executive producers Hart Hanson, Barry Josephson and Stephen Nathan comes the fifth exciting season of Bones, a darkly amusing procedural with humor, heart and character, inspired by real-life forensic anthropologist and novelist Kathy Reichs.
Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC, and writes novels as a sideline. When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless—when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed that CSI gives up—law enforcement calls in Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim’s bones.
Most law enforcement can’t handle Brennan’s intelligence, her drive for the truth, or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation. Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) of the FBI’s Homicide Investigations Unit is the exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists—the “squints,” as he calls them—who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his people-smarts and Brennan’s scientific acumen makes them a formidable team.Full Episode List

Robert Gant (Popular) and Elizabeth Hurley (Gossip Girl, Austin Powers) have inked recurring roles on The Tomorrow People, reports E!Online. Gant will play the mysterious new boyfriend of Stephen’s (Robbie Amell) mom, while Hurley will voice Ultra’s A.I. super-computer with an oddly vindictive streak. The Tomorrow People is all-new Wednesday at 9pm, with the midseason finale next week.
Katrina Law (Spartacus, Legend of the Seeker) will fill the shoes of Ra’s al Ghul’s love child, Nyssa, another member of the League of Assassins, in upcoming episodes of Arrow, confirms EW. There’s speculation online that Summer Glau’s character, Isabel Rochev, is secretly Ghul’s daughter, Talia.
With Damon’s Augustine past revealed on The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder teases this week’s flashbacks as “brutal” and “crazy.” In fact, costar Nina Dobrev (Elena) could barely get through the scenes, says TVLine. “I’m not good at that kind of stuff and hated watching it. I’ll probably have to close my eyes when I catch it on TV.”
Zoe’s (Rachel Bilson) cousin, Vivian (Lauren Bittner), isn’t going away any time soon—and neither is Wade’s potential romance with the Wilkes beauty, Hart of Dixie EP Leila Gerstein tells zap2it. “The next new episode (January 13) finds Zoe in the middle as the relationship is beginning. It’s her new cousin and her ex-boyfriend, and it’s hard.” Wade (Wilson Bethel) will also have his hands full trying to win over Vivian’s eight-year-old son, who hates his mom’s new suitor.
