I Kinda Dig Bones

If you only look skin deep, Fox's Bones is yet another frustrating example of the Just Good Enough TV Drama -- rote and predictable enough not to scare away lazy couch potatoes, but peppered with juuuuuuust enough smarts and originality to avoid viewers' outright contempt. But underneath the surface, there's at least the skeleton of a good TV show here. If Bones, inspired by the books of forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, doesn't get everything right -- and it definitely doesn't -- at least it absolutely nails the things it needs to get right.
