Make No Bones About Linguistics

I just finished watching the May 5 Bones episode titled "The Signs in the Silence" and I was thrilled to see the science of linguistics called upon to help solve a crime (specifically, dialect analysis) (more specifically, sign language dialect analysis).

Bones is one of the better shows on network television (save for a few annoying characters and silly side-stories) and this episode, in particular, is worth the watch. After all, it probably does not occur to many people that sign languages have dialects too.

This link will take you to all of the episodes that are currently available for online viewing.

I haven't been keeping up with Bones as much as I would like- but I need to. I always catch the reruns on TNT and probably have seen them all at least 3 times! I'm sad I've missed this episode. Do you know if they have it on Hulu?
