Seeley Booth is a slut.There, I've said it. And so might you after this week's episode of Fox's Bones (Wednesdays at 8 pm/ET), one of the most enjoyable episodes yet this season on one of TV's more underrated procedurals. There is no justifiable reason why this show isn't doing better on Wednesdays, in one of the most undernourished time periods of the week. (The competition tonight includes three reality shows and CBS's plodding headscratcher Jericho, which follows last week's mega-hyped and well-sampled premiere with a ludicrous second episode in which Skeet Ulrich once again saves the day as ominous rain clouds threatening radioactive fallout loom on the horizon. Not exactly "there's no place like home" material.)Back to Bones, which most weeks manages the neat trick of delivering a grisly puzzle amid clever character intrigue laced with comedy involving FBI stud Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) and the science-geek "squints" led by the formidable Bones (Emily Deschanel). This week,...
Earlier this week, Charisma Carpenter weighed in on one Buffy reunion accomplished (ABC Family's Relative Chaos, costarring Nicholas Brendon) and another perhaps to come (on David Boreanaz's Bones). Here in Part 2 of her TVGuide.com Q&A, the brunette beauty talks about where we definitely will see her next — Veronica Mars, home of Kendall's mysterious briefcase — and updates us on how she is still Wonder-ing about donning a certain superheroine's bullet-deflecting bracelets.

David Boreanaz, Bones
Since the very first episode of Bones, audiences have been enthralled with Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and their will-they-or-won't-they relationship. TVGuide.com got a chance to talk to Boreanaz about what's in store romantically for his character this year (the short answer: a lot!), and what he did on his summer vacation.
TVGuide.com: How'd you spend your hiatus?David Boreanaz: It was kind of short, since we finished later than normal and started back on production in June. I went home to Philadelphia, then went to Mexico to kind of dissolve myself with
Bones' David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel
When TVGuide.com caught up with David Boreanaz at last year's Comic-Con, he had just shot the pilot for the Fox series Bones and was scheduled to film the next batch of episodes as soon as he got back to L.A. At that point, no one had any idea how the show would fare in the ratings. What a difference a year makes. Returning to San Diego a few weeks ago, the former angsty vampire was all smiles, secure in the knowledge that his character, FBI agent Seeley Booth, would be solving forensic crimes opposite Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) for another season. After appearing at a Bones panel disc
Alana De La Garza, CSI: Miami
Are Horatio Caine and Marisol Delko heading for a wedding on CBS' CSI: Miami (Mondays at 10 pm/ET)? Perhaps even en route to "happily ever after"? Or, in light of the nasty line of work that the good lieutenant is in, might this story go from a vow... to a kill? TVGuide.com rang Alana De La Garza, who plays Horatio's lady love, to get up to speed on CSI: Miami, a possible Smallville encore and her other TV adventures.
TVGuide.com: We go back a few years, Alana, and you haven't been keeping me posted on your TV gigs this season. Instead, I get press releases saying, "Alana's do
Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother
Nope, not gonna mention the kid doc by name for another 700 words or so. But boy, has Neil Patrick Harris accomplished the almost-impossible, creating a character on CBS' hit freshman laffer How I Met Your Mother (Mondays at 8:30 pm/ET) so fresh and different that we almost forget his original TV incarnation. (Of course, that little escapade with Harold & Kumar helped the cause.) Just how much does the actor love creating Barney trouble? Here's what he had to tell TVGuide.com.
TVGuide.com: When I interviewed As the World Turns' Terri Colombino née Conn years ago, she mentioned that you were her prom date. What do you remember about that night?Neil Patrick Harris: She's married now? Oh, I remember lots. That was really fun. We had
Question: I'm a huge fan of Bones. Any chance of Booth and Brennan getting together?
Answer: I asked David Boreanaz a crasser version of that exact question on last week's podcast.
BonesSo I had to suspect that Agent Kenton was bad from the moment he walked on screen. I mean it was almost a little bit of déjà vu seeing David Boreanaz and Adam Baldwin together again. Except this time around, things didn't end quite so badly for David B. Booth, who was actually able to stop the bad guy from killing Brennan, instead of fighting off a seemingly insurmountable flock of demons from hell in an attempt to save the world. But I digress to the good old days of Angel, when I'm really supposed to talk about how delighted I am for an exciting episode of Bones in its nice new time slot. Brennan nearly gets whacked by the mob, she and Booth dance and sing to Foreigner's "Hot Blooded," there are some really grody-lookin
Question: Fox has been taunting me for weeks now with the previews for the return of Prison Break. While there is no doubt I love the show and will watch it, I admit that the hiatus has eliminated some of the tension that used to carry me from week to week. What are the chances that Fox will run a PB marathon to entice new viewers while building the tension and excitement again for old viewers? The show is too fabulous to lose the momentum from the fall, and I can't wait that long for my Dominic Purcell fix.
Answer: Look for a Prison Break marathon on March 19 (the eve of the show's return with new episodes), but on FX, not Fox. The marathon will include a behind-the-scenes special and episodes 8-13, wrapping with last November's cliff-hanger. A lot of time has passed, to be sure, but I have no doubt that the show's fans will get right back into the mood of things.
On a separate front, harking back to earlier questions, this from Margo: "Why the need to compare Prison Break and Bones,
Question: Matt, seriously. Bones is Fox's best new show of the season? Better than Prison Break? Are you serious, or was it just a momentary lapse due to PB's hiatus? Please tell me it's the latter. Bones is OK, more watchable now than it was when it started, but it's no Prison Break. David Boreanaz wishes he had 20 percent of Wentworth Miller's screen presence.
Answer: Do not be dissing my Angel, but otherwise, mea culpa. Prison Break has many flaws, but it's my kind of show (see: 24), and I would agree that it's more gripping and a more significant newcomer to Fox's schedule than Bones — although the nature of Prison Break's story line makes me wonder if Bones might not have more staying power in the long, long run. When I answered that question about Bones, I did momentarily forget that Prison Break's return is just around the corner (mark March 20 on your calendars, and March 19 if you missed some episodes and want to catch up with a marathon on FX) ...
