I noticed that in the Spoiler talk there is alot of comparison between Bones and NCIS going on so I though maybe it should have a topic.
Steph, Please feel free to move this to wherever it may be more appropriate.
While reading the comparisons, I was thinking that I totally agree. The resemblance between some of the characters in Bones and NCIS is rather uncanny.
Here are the ones stated so far as well as the ones that I noticed:
-Booth and Gibbs were both Snipers.
-The same actor played both Booth and Gibbs father.
-Both Booths and Gibb's father were in the Air Force
-Both Booth and Gibb's have turbulent relationships with their fathers
-Both Booth and Gibbs seem to have issues with authority
-I noticed that in "The Parts in the Sum of the Whole", Brennan mangling colloquialisms. eg. She used the term "Broil the suspect" instead of "grill the suspect". Ziva uses colloquialisms wrong all the time
-Both Ziva and Brennan have no problem with physical confrontation and are often physically aggressive.
-The same actress becomes a possible love interest for characters in both shows
-The whole Brennan and Booth relationship run around is quite similar to the whole Tony and Ziva thing.
Those are the similarities that I have thought of so far.
