Bones Season 12, The final chapter by

An abbreviated, half-length season for a show that burned out creatively years ago. All the expected impending finale gags are here – returning recurring guest stars, recycled plot devices, cameos from departed cast members, weddings, funerals, set destruction, and hastily and improbably completed story arcs.  Squeezing so many cliched tropes into only half season is actually the most impressive part of it.  Watch if you’re a completist, but you lose nothing by skipping it – most fans gave up several seasons ago.
