“To this day, David and Emily, if you know them as human beings, there’s no way they should get along. You could not find two people who were more predestined to irk and irritate each other. And they’re fantastic friends. They took care of each other offscreen. They were very sibling-esque offscreen and behind the scenes. That’s the other reason we went forever: You’ve heard all those stories of what happens between co-leads on series; they tend to really dislike each other. Ours didn’t.” - Hart Hanson
I don’t even know where to begin with this day. If I let myself think about it I won’t be able to stop myself from crying. I’m going to miss this cast so much. I am so proud of them, this show has made their careers, not only the cast but also the crew. We shouldn’t just thank the cast but most importantly the crew. If it wasn’t for them the show wouldn’t be on air. This wonderful cast has changed my life in so many ways. My journey started by watching David Boreanaz on my TV screen when I was 7 years old. I’ve followed him since childhood and continued to follow him to this show, if it wasn’t for David I wouldn’t have found this wonderful show. I wouldn’t have fallen in love with all these wonderful, well-written, complex and thoroughly developed characters. This show gave me something to look forward to when I was growing up, trying to figure out my life, my teenage years. Knowing that I wasn’t “weird” or “unpopular” it gave me something to smile about when a school day wasn’t so good. Didn’t matter if “it was just” a TV show it’s been so much more to me. And now as a young adult Bones has been there for me when the days seemed the hardest, navigating through life, figuring out what I want to do with it. These actors are vastly underrated and literally deserve the world. If it wasn’t for the show I wouldn’t have made some amazing friends through this fandom - on Tumblr and over Twitter. I wish the cast and crew all the best for the future in their future roles and they finally get the recognition they deserve. I will continue to follow them in their projects and will always remember them as the cast that I fell in love with when I was 13 years old.
Reading Hart’s interviews / quotes about fighting with FOX for 12 years basicaly made me so cringey and angry. And then sad. I mean, it’s true that famous people (including actors and producers etc) get a lot of money compared to normal people who work 10 hours to get 800$ sometimes. But anyway, running a tv show and playing a character for 12 years is extremely hard and money is not all that matters in life. It’s discouraging to see how FOX has tried and tried to discredit the work of this extremely talented group of people. I mean, as a producer, it definitely isn’t easy to never see your creaton get the credit it deserves. And as an actor? Even more so. Everyone on the Bones cast worked hard for 12 years. Emily and David have worked up to 18 hours per day in the first years and later not less than 12 anyway. I am so sure they have made sacrifices when it comes to their personal lives to give everything to this show for how possibile. Emily worked on Bones when she was like 3 days away from giving birth to Henry. David got sick during s11 and came back to work because he was so committed to it. And so did the rest of the cast, and to be honest, they never really mattered to FOX anyway. I mean, to FOX, once ED and DB signed their deals, the show was renewed no matter what TJ, Tamara and Michaela said. So who wins? NO ONE. Hart Hanson as a producer/creator had to fight with FOX for promotion and technicalities. Emily, David and the rest of the cast never won an award, never saw their show getting promotion, never got recognition for their talent as actors as they were snubbed by every award show to exist. The most important TV news sites usually used Bones for clickbaiting or to throw some shade at it. Reviewers were mean the 99% of the time (psa: Thank you Give Me My Remote and later TV Insider for being basically the only website that loved covering this show and it showed.) Because after all, the only reason why FOX picked up this show back in 2005 was Emily’s boobs. They weren’t even given the opportunity to have a decent time slot for more than 2 years - where other similiar shows like NCIS, Castle, SVU, Grey’s Anatomy were considered their network’s MVPs. When Bones got 5.2 or 4.8 ratings’, FOX prevented Hart from putting Booth and Brennan together because they were scared the show would end. After that, when Bones continued to get decent ratings in the following years despite FOX’s crisis - for their low standards - the network started to complain it wasn’t enough, even when they had NOTHING ELSE on their schedule that performed even slightly better than Bones did. And even in their final season, with zero promotion, Bones is still above-average when it comes to ratings. (Preliminar ratings for Tuesday’s episode were 1.0 and I don’t care it was later adjusted down to 0.9) but yeah, who cares. So, this extremely long post is a way to say that I’m amazed by the Bones cast and crew for being able to ignore all of this and creating a family and a working enviroment based on mutual love and respect. To me, they win. 12 years are an incredible accomplishment and I hope they know that from the love of their fans who - after all - supported them through all of this. Speaking for myself, I am so proud to call myself a fan of this show that gave me so much and sort of made me who I am today.
10 Reasons To Carefully Consider Drinking More Single Malt Whisky
1. Whisky contains 0% fat – so that is one less thing to worry about.
2. Whisky is low in carbohydrates.
3. Dr. David J. Hanson of State University of New York research indicated that people who drink one or two alcoholic drinks a day have a 50 percent lower chance of having a stroke or developing dementia at an older age.
4. In 2005, Dr. Jim Swan, speaking at the EuroMedLab conference in Glasgow, found that single malt whiskies have more elegiac acid than red wine. The elegiac acid is an antioxidant that is thought to absorb rogue cancer cells in the body.

9. Whisky has been around for at least 519 years – the earliest documented record of distilling in Scotland occurred in 1494, in the tax records of the day. The Exchequer Rolls, list, ‘eight bolls of malt to Friar John Cor where to make aqua vitae’.
10. Single malt whiskies come in a huge range of characters and flavours – profiles include: smoky, tobacco, medicinal, sherry, spicy, malty, nutty, honey, sweet, fruit and floral.
Season 12 of Bones is our final season and too many fans are being negative about the show. We haven’t see it yet, but we have been told by the Show Runners, by Hart Hanson, by David and Emily and Tamara that the show is a love letter to the fans.
They are not going to ruin our show. They are going to try to wrap up things and make it fun while they do it. We are getting a creepy serial killer. They are doing an undercover episode. Cindy Lauper and Betty White will be back. Eddie McClintock will be back so he can see that Brennan made the wisest choice by not going with him. I don’t know if Stephen Fry will be on the show but he was on the set. Jaime Bergman Boreanaz will have a small role and that sounds so cute to me.
I don’t know. I just think season 12 is going to be the send off the fans need and want. We are so lucky to have got 12 seasons. My goodness, most shows barely make lt past three years and five years is considered a huge success.
In these twelve years we have had a consistent show and the main cast has stuck with it. A few of the minor characters moved on, but really our main cast has been loyal and has stayed. Twelve years is a long time for an actor to give to one show and I just love them for staying.
Bones has been the gift that keeps on giving. I will miss it when it’s gone, but oh how lovely it’s been to have twelve seasons. We are so darn lucky.
“I’ve written more than one set of wedding vows, but the vows for Booth and Brennan in Bones
are my favorite because they were steeped in years and years of history
and both actors thrummed with that energy. Booth’s face as he watches
Brennan state that she has caught him gazing at her over the years when
he thought she wasn’t looking, well, you don’t actually write that stuff
but you get credit for it.” - Hart Hanson (x)
I can’t tell you how different that David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel are from each other as human beings, but they have this, onscreen they have this remarkable sexual chemistry, offscreen they are so sibling like that its a little creepy to watch them go back and forth.
