    2 Great Things About "Bones," And 1 Of The Worst

    "I never got a B, and I never will." —Brennan on Bones (2005–2017)

    1. GREAT: Lead character Temperance "Bones" Brennan defied stereotypes about how women should act. In other words, she was rude as hell.

    2. GREAT: She was smarter than everyone, including a man who was okay with it.

    3. UGH: And yet the show contained so much ignorance.

    The world needs more off-kilter female heroines like Temperance Brennan. RIP, Bones: I love you and I hate you.
