I’m not a big fan of Fox TV, but I am a big fan of Fox’s “Bones,” which celebrates its 100th episode today. The producers call it “Crimedy,” and it’s good television with a bit of tongue-in-cheek in every episode. If you can’t eat your dinner, then they doing something right. The formula is simple yet elegant — not Albert Einstein’s E=MC2 — more like each week there’s a mystery — what, or who, killed this body? And each week, a romantic comedy between two leads (a social misfit forensic anthropologist and an FBI special agent with his own issues.)
“Bones” was created by Hart Hanson and stars Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Michaella Conlin, Eric Millegan, T. J. Thyne, Jonathan Adams, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Taylor. The theme music is by The Crystal Method.
I worked with the über talented Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland, two electronic musicians who go by the name of The Crystal Method, on the feature film “After,” a Horror/Thriller directed by David L. Cunningham. The movie’s about Urban Explorers who are extreme sports’ answer to computer hackers: a growing breed of thrill-seekers who thrive on infiltrating the planet’s most dangerous man-made structures… Just because they can.
“After” is a wonderful film and The Crystal Method ‘s contribution helped make it even better.
