Fan Columnist: How to Survive the 'Bones' Hiatus
Fan Columnist: How to Survive the 'Bones' Hiatus
I know, like me, you must still be reeling over the fact that there will be no new Bones episodes until November 5, but I beseech you to try your best to cope during this hard time.  For it is in fact during a tragedy like this that we must all band together in order to get past the pain and anguish we feel in our hearts. 

There are 13 long days until the return of Booth and Bones, but we must not dwell on this.  Let's focus on the positive and keep ourselves occupied for the remainder of this time. I have listed five excellent ways for you to survive this treacherous Bones hiatus.   

Watch reruns of Bones on TNT: You can catch Bones on TNT almost every weekday at 7 and 8pm.  The schedule tends to change rather inconsistently, so I urge you to go to their website and double check.  If we're lucky, one day they will have back-to-back-to-back Bones episodes!  Season 1 just started up again.  Isn't it funny to see how much everyone has changed?   

Re-watch episodes from Season 5: OK, so maybe you're not like me, and you don't like to re-watch episodes over and over again, but who doesn't like the amazing Booth and Bones moments from this season?  I mean come on.  Booth and Bones said I love you to each other...if only in a "professional kind of way." You can check watch them here.

Get Bones Season 4 on DVD: Like the commercial says, this is "the season that changed everything." If you don't have it already, I strongly encourage you to go and get it. Aside from every episode, it has deleted scenes, a feature about the Squints, and my personal favorite, a gag reel. 

Continue to check BuddyTV for news and spoilers: I often find this the best way to cope with the hiatus of any show.  During a long break, it's always nice to hear some good news.  For instance, did you hear that Zooey Deschanel will be making a guest appearance on Bones as Brennan's cousin later on this season?  I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see the lovely Deschanel sisters together on the same screen.   

Breathe: This might seem like the strangest suggestion ever, but trust me, it really does work.  It has been scientifically proven to help lower your stress level, but, most importantly, it helps you to not harbor any hatred toward FOX or Major League Baseball.  Personally, this is just one more reason why I don't like baseball, but, since it is America's pastime, I guess I'll have to accept it.
