While the series follows an underlying narrative surrounding the life of Dr. Brennan and her acquaintances, each episode, respectively, focuses on an FBI case file. In "Bones", Dr. Brennan and FBI Special Sgent Seeley Booth make up an unlikely duo. While Brennan is the brains- a team leader at the fictional Jefferson Institute Medico-Legal Lab, which collaborates frequently with the FBI- Agent Booth is a premier criminal investigation specialist. Together, the two fight to solve and prevent crimes, all the while watching their own relationship evolve. Underlying the series' is a constant battle between science and faith, humanity and God: What brings man to commit such crimes, and how should we approach them?
