Bones

The X in the File - S5-E11

Factual error: The Roswell, New Mexico sheriff forces Bones to examine the body because it was found in his jurisdiction. But later in the episode, we learn that the body was found 2 kilometers from the border of Mexico. Roswell is not even in a county on the border of New Mexico much less one that borders Mexico. In fact the closest border to Roswell between the US and Mexico would be in Texas - hours drive away. The Roswell sheriff would have no jurisdiction.

The Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - S5-E4

Factual error: Near the end, the gang is using Luminol to check for blood on neighbourhood signs. Luminol won't work in broad daylight, they should have used blue light filtering lens to enhance its visibility.

The Dwarf in the Dirt - S5-E7

Trivia: At around 5 mins 11 seconds into the episode, Vincent Nigel-Murrey and Dr. Saroyan are discussing the bones on the forensic platform. In the background of a shot of Vincent, the x-ray on the screen is of Homer Simpson's head in the middle of the screen, instead of a real human skull.

The Girl in the Mask - S4-E23

Question: When Doctor Brennan is examining the victim's skull, she states that a "straight suture across the palatine bone" indicates that the victim was a native Japanese speaker. I've studied linguistics, but I've never heard of a person's native language actually affecting their anatomy. So, for example: would a person of Japanese heritage who was born and raised in the US and spoke only English be distinguishable from a person who grew up in Japan and spoke only Japanese, purely by their palatine bones?

Question: In the Kathy Reich novels, is Bones ever actually referred to as "Bones"?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: I have read each Kathy Reichs novel and nowhere in them is Temperance Brennan called "Bones". The atmosphere of the novels is much darker, grimmer and more down-to-earth than that of the series and the relationships among the characters is more lifelike; the heroine is called "Dr. Brennan" or "Tempe" by everybody, including her on/off lover Det. Andrew Ryan, except for her boss in Montréal who insists on calling her by her full name, Temperance.

Player Under Pressure - S3-E11

Question: The Season 3 DVD set has two versions of the "Player Under Pressure" episode. I've just watched the unaired version, which seems to fit into season 2 - Hodgins hasn't yet convinced Angela to marry him, and the credits don't contain Larry the psychiatrist. Does anyone know why the episode was not aired in Season 2 as seems originally intended?

Chosen answer: The episode was initially part of Season Two but it was not aired on its originally scheduled date because of the Virginia Tech massacre, a college shooting. Fox thought it was inappropriate to air an episode with a similar plot, however vague the similarities may be, so it was replaced by a repeat of "Aliens in a Spaceship".
