** CriticalResearchFailure: In the episode ''The Baker in the Bits'', Hodgins identifies the murder weapon as a 'Northern Indian ritualistic slaughter knife' and Brennan shows Booth the picture of a knife with an outward curve. Booth misidentifies the weapon as a kukri -- which has an inward curve. He also says he saw it in Afghanistan. Kukris are from Nepal and are in common use at all levels of society.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Kathryn Walling, Cayla Seligman and Arianna Donas, three sixteen-year-old girls from "The Lost In The Found". Were they your stereotypical mean girls? To an extent, yes. Did they deserve to be badgered by Booth, arrested for the supposed murder of the victim, despite maintaining their innocence the entire time, without any actual probable cause to do so, and found out to have been drugged heavily enough by the victim that they completely lost several hours of time so that they would appear to be the prime suspects for her murder-which actually turned out to have been a suicide? Absolutely not. And did they get an apology from Booth after the fact? No, they didn't.

** [[BilingualBonus Knowing Norwegian]] and listening to the prologue dialogue of "[[Recap/BonesS4E21MayhemOnACross Mayhem on a Cross]]" will have you laugh as it's so gramatically wrong. And "Absolutt", despite being more or less same word as "abosolutely" is it not used in the same situations as English works differently. Also with Deschanel's hillariously wrong pronuciation of "skalle"(skull) which sounds more Swedish than Norwegian and her correcting the others who actually say it ''[[SurprisinglyGoodForeignLanguage right]]'', and with the police acting nothing like Norwegian police is the cherry on top, which makes it an episode hard to seriously. One can actually see the Norwegian actor wanting to say it's wrong, but not daring to.

** The Gravedigger, aka [[spoiler:[[KillerCop Heather Taffet]]]], is a dark cross between a SerialKiller and a serial kidnapper. Their modus operandi is to sneak up on victims, knock them out with a custom-made stun gun, and bury them in a hidden container with 24 hours of air; either the ransom is paid, or the victims die. The Gravedigger's introduced by doing this on Dr. Brennan - not because Brennan is a threat, but just because. The Gravedigger also traps Dr. Hodgins at the same time (cutting the available air to around 12 hours) just because he witnessed the kidnapping. When reappearing, The Gravedigger then tries to similarly bury Booth alive to destroy evidence, plus tries to kill Brennan and Booth again. The Gravedigger also kills a private investigator with her stun gun because The Gravedigger thinks that there's a chance that he might find The Gravedigger in the future. Several of the other victims are also sought, with the cruel circumstances behind them all played up. In the end, The Gravedigger admits to [[ForTheEvulz just enjoying killing people]] and the effects that BuriedAlive has on victims; the ransom money was immaterial.

* The description of Wicca in "The Witch in the Wardrobe" is constructed from one part horror movies and five parts horse-hockey. There are shelves of books on Wicca in any bookstore, but apparently it was just ''easier'' to portray a real-life religion as a bunch of loony Goths.
