Yes, the Netflix order is the original airdate order, and would've been the order in which I would've watched the season if I hadn't done some research and/or reasonable deduction based on the individual content of certain episodes. I found out about the true viewing order for episodes 2, 3, and 7 from Wikipedia, and found an episode guide for the season online that provided the alternate viewing placement for episodes 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, and 13. I then made some reasonable deductions myself and moved the remainder of the episodes around based on their individual content in relation to one another (specifically flip-flopping episodes 14 and 15 because of Booth being shot in episode 15, which provides an explanation for the references made in episode 14 about Brennan working several cases by herself without Booth's help, and moving them to late in the season because of Brennan giving Booth her parents' case file in episode 14, which leads very organically into the events of episode 22, which is all about her parents). BTW, I'd like to add another angle to this this whole thing. Last night, I found out that Hart Hanson, the man who created Bones, modeled the show's version of the Temperance Brennan character after a friend of his who has Asperger's Syndrome. Since I myself was diagnosed as high-functioning autistic as a child, I'm now wondering the following: does anyone know of any series that fit the 'serialized procedural' format and feature characters who demonstrate high-functioning autistic and/or Aspergers-like behaviors and personality traits?
