Ever find yourself looking for more of the crime solving, scientific geniuses, and heart-racing of Bones? Look no further than the Virals series, starring the niece of famed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan! Read on for the 8 reasons you’re guaranteed to love it:
1. TORY IS THE YOUNG TEMPE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO HANG OUT WITH
Ever wonder how a teenage Temperance Brennan would’ve navigated the halls of a snotty private high school in Charleston? Look no further than Virals.
2. SQUINTS IN TRAINING
Ben, Shelton, and Hiram could give Angela and Hodgins a run for their money in solving forensic mysteries on the fly. Whether it’s bugs, prints, tracks, or trace evidence, both crews know how to see to the heart of the evidence and tease out its secrets.
3. KILLERS AND CRIMINALS: ALWAYS EVERYWHERE
Like Booth and Tempe, Tory and the gang run into some nasty customers during their adventures, and must rely on their intelligence to survive and outwit their adversaries.
4. SCIENCE IS GREAT, SUPERNATURAL EVEN BETTER
While Tempe and her crew must rely solely on their whip-smarts and logical reasoning, the Virals have a few extra tricks up their sleeves. It helps to have canine supersensory capacities. Or would, if they could somehow learn to control them.
5. BOTH CREWS KNOW WHEN TO STEP OUT OF BOUNDS
Look, it’s not like Tory and her friends want to disobey authority, but as Tempe and Booth know, sometimes you have to follow your gut. Even if parents, the cops, or anyone else in authority tries to stop you.
6. CHANCE CLAYBOURNE IS THE BIZARRO SEELEY BOOTH
Suave and debonair, with a ready smile but often-questionable motives, Chance is a young Seeley Booth at heart. If Booth happened to be born stinking rich and worked outside the system to get what he wanted, of course.
7. TORY AND TEMPE TEAM UP FROM TIME TO TIME
You heard me right. You want more Temperance Brennan in your life? Well look no further than the pages of the Virals series, where Tempe is known to pop up at critical moments.
