** The writers' strike cut short Bones' third season, eliminating episodes that could have been used to give clues into the Gormogon case (and Zack's role in it). Instead, Zack's involvement came out of the blue in the season finale, leaving many fans angry.

* OutOfOrder: Two instances, in Season 3. Both can (at least in part) be blamed on the 2010 [[TVStrikes WGA strike,]] which put a gap in that season and shortened it considerably.

** The Vegas episode combines Boreanaz's role of Angel (who also spent time in Vegas) with a role Angel himself played as vampire stuck in the fifties, rat-pack style. Booth spikes his hair up, dons greaser clothes and suspenders, faking a Bronx accent outta ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls''.

* CaliforniaDoubling: [[http://www.aquariumofpacific.org/ The Aquarium of the Pacific]] in Long Beach is "The Aquarium of the Atlantic".
** The Jeffersonian itself is often "played" by the Los Angeles Natural History Museum.
** Averted in "The Suit on the Set" -- shot on location at Fox Studios, although they never explicitly say where they are. [[ProductPlacement They just let the coffee cups do the talking]].
** Despite the name, "The Bones on the Blue Line" doesn't resemble the DC Metro in the slightest (barring an establishing shot of the distinctive DC Metro), and is actually the Earthquake subway set on the Universal Studios Backlot (part of the Universal Studio Tour).
** "The Murder in the Middle East" has Little Tokyo substituting for Tehran, Iran (there's lots of rice-paper-looking window coverings in the background, plus Aristoo emerges from a notable yogurt shop in that area).

* McLeaned: A rather harsh example with [[spoiler: the death of Sweets; John Francis Daley (whose writing and directing career was picking up steam)]] [[http://tvline.com/2014/10/02/john-francis-daley-interview-bones-why-did-he-leave-sweets/ requested]] a four-month leave to direct a movie with full intention of returning to the show once it was completed. Showrunner Stephen Nathan instead opted to brutally kill his character in the season premiere, feeling it would be better for him to dramatically die, instead of him vanishing for half a season, and possibly having to write him out again later on.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Over its 12-year lifespan, the show never had a consistent time slot, and constantly switched around. It even briefly ended up in the FridayNightDeathSlot in mid-Season 9, (rightfully) [[http://tvline.com/2013/05/13/fox-fall-tv-lineup-2013-bones-friday/ raising concerns]] that FOX, being FOX, had fallen out of love with the show and would screw it over eventually. By Season 10, FOX more or less forgot that the show even existed, giving it less promotion and renewing it for an 11th season at the last second. The persistence and loyalty of the ''Bones'' fanbase is what managed to keep it alive so long. Hart Hanson even called it [[http://deadline.com/2017/01/bones-final-season-emily-deschanel-boreanaz-hart-hanson-tca-1201883874/ "the cockroach of FOX"]].
** Ultimately (and thankfully) subverted, since the FOX execs decided to give the show a mercy kill: granting the showrunners a chance to write a twelveth, half-length FinaleSeason to give it a proper sendoff.
