Au - Mike Lawson, Assistant Director of the FBI needs the help of world famous anthropologist Dr. Ginny Baker go catch a serial killer.
listen. Listen. I love Bones. I love Bones. I love every single second of that show (even though it went on about three seasons too long). I am actually, literally watching Bones right now. So yeah, I am 100% behind whatever fusion of these two universes that anyone cooks up.
Mike Lawson is not at all convinced that some poindexter from some hoity-toity lab is going to help boost his ability to close cases, but the higher ups won’t sign off on his theory without an “expert opinion.” So he’s got to kill half a day cozying up to some scientist, flash a few x-rays, get her approval, and finally catch the bad guy.
Of course, that was before he met Dr. Ginny Baker. Dr. Ginny Baker who is even smarter than she is beautiful. Dr. Ginny Baker who will only offer an opinion if he lets her out into the field with him.
Somehow, it’s the start of a beautiful friendship.
Bonus: Evelyn and Blip as squints on Ginny’s team and Al as Mike’s supervisor. Amelia shows up as the Assistant US Attorney and the rest of the Padres make appearances as necessary.
(While I’m all for a slow burn, let’s maybe kick up the pace just a smidge, though. Six seasons is too long to wait.)
