Bones Celebrates 200th Episode With Film Noir Swagger

It’s a landmark event tonight on Bones, and if you’re going to celebrate 200 episodes of one of television’s most beloved shows, why not do it up film noir style?

Titled “The 200th in the 10th,” this installment features the Jeffersonian and FBI teams in classic 1950s Tinseltown, as Brennan (Emily Deschnael) is an LAPD detective and Booth (David Boreanaz) is a dashing jewel thief who’s framed for murder. The pair, as all classic Hollywood couples do, team up to solve the mystery and clear Booth’s name.

A huge factor for Bones’ longevity lies in the innate chemistry between Boreanaz and Deschanel.  “She’s a great person to work with,” said Boreanaz about his co-lead. “When we feel like we’re having bad days, we tell each other – we support each other. Rather than run away from each other and sit on opposite ends of the room . . . we support the process.”

The Juliana Hatfield Three Reunite For Sophomore Album & 2015 Tour

The Juliana Hatfield Three released their debut album Become What You Are back in 1993, and the group have reunited to release their sophomore album Whatever, My Love on February 17 via American Laundromat Records.


The group worked on the album at Nuthouse Recording in Hoboken, NJ, with Hatfield and Tom Beaujour (Nada Surf, Minor Alps, Guided By Voices) serving as producers of the 12 songs.

Although the debut album yielded the hits “My Sister” and “Spin the Bottle” (it was featured on the Reality Bites soundtrack), the trio each went their separate paths. As Hatfield has continued her career as an indie artist and collaborator (Some Girls, Blake Babies, Minor Alps), Todd Philips ventured off to a career in the film industry and also has been touring as the Lemonheads drummer. Bassist Dean Fisher has plied his trade in the Boston music scene with Dylan in the Movies and Tanya Donelly.

Marvel Contest of Champions Gets Cosmic On App Store & Google Play


Marvel Contest of Champions is a free to play app that is now available in the App Store and on Google Play. The game, a collaboration between Kabam and Marvel Entertainment, contains over 25 unlockable characters from the get-go.

With Marvel Contest of Champions, gamers will craft a group of heroes and villains taken from Marvel’s extensive universe, and along with single player campaigns there’s also player vs. player (PVP) mode for gamers who love a bit of online competition.

A sign that this app may have legs lies in its creative direction, as Marvel Comics scribe Sam Humphries (The Legendary Star-Lord) penned the game, which features a group of heroes who team up to take down such other worldly villains as Kang the Conqueror and Thanos.

“It was awesome working with Kabam to develop a unique storyline for a video game that stays true to the Marvel Universe,” said Humphries. “Watching the heroes and villains come to life as playable characters on my phone is beyond epic.”


“We could not be more excited about Marvel Contest of Champions,” added Jay Ong, VP of Games, Marvel Entertainment. “The team at Kabam has done an amazing job of translating the heroic combat and dynamic visuals that Marvel fans know and love into an action-packed gameplay experience for mobile devices.”
