'The Finder' Recap: Searching for Socks

Walter and Leo try to find a professional baseball player's good luck socks in tonight's The Finder . Stealing Home Tonight's episode starts off promising for Isabella, as she seems poised to consummate her budding relationship with Frank, a wealthy professional baseball player. Their evening is ruined, however, by an intruder who makes off with a gym bag and a prestigious trophy. They enlist the help of Walter Sherman, Finder, but he's reluctant to help, finding Frank's focus on the gym bag over the trophy suspicious. Isabel insists, however, and the Finder takes the case. //

The Finder Review:The Perfect Man

The Finder made a convincing comeback this week in " Swing and a Miss ." Friends with benefits, celebrities, baseball and gambling were just a few of the entertaining features of the hour. Perhaps the first thing that really caught my attention was the fact we actually got to see that Isabel had an existence outside her appearances as an asset in Walter's cases, especially one that included such a good looking boyfriend - and a famous baseball player no less. Besides that, we finally received an explanation of the relationship she shares with Walter, which is apparently classified as friends with benefits. While I am not normally a proponent of this particular kind of arrangement, I finally got the feeling that there were some compelling interpersonal dynamics that I would be interested in learning more about.

The Finder “A Cinderella Story” Review

Charged with finding not an object, but a person , Walter stumbles (literally…in heels) into the path  of a serial  killer in "A Cinderella  Story," this week’s episode of  The Finder . Meanwhile, Willa proves that she’sa long way  from being rehabilitated after she seeks  revenge  for a tragedy from Leo’s past. There was a lot I liked about this episode. I love the  dynamics between Walter and Leo, as well as between Walter and Isabel, but the element of  the wayward gypsy girl is starting to feel a little out of sync with the rest of the show. I do appreciate the fact that they’re apparently not afraid to make her dark, but it’s hard to get behind a character who would trick a friend into crippling a man, even if that man was a killer in his own right. We’re so used to characters taking the moral high ground; perhaps it will just take me a little while to get used to this new brand of anti-heroine. Read More... //  

The Finder Review: Fatal Attractions

Ira, a buddy of Walter's, enlists his help to find the Cinderella who captured his heart when they met at a bar on The Finder this week. Elsewhere, Leo and Willa run into the man who responsible for the death of his wife and daughter. When curiosity got the best of Willa, it caused a riff in her relationship with Leo that she was desperate to reconcile. In both cases it seemed fatal attractions almost cost both Ira and Willa a lot, Ira to his illusive Cinderella and Willa to her curiousity. One thing is for sure " A Cinderella Story " certainly felt like a fairytale which made it a little difficult to take the installment seriously. Read More... //

The Finder Review: Or Die Trying

The Finder raced to beat the clock on " Bullets " by recovering evidence capable of saving the life of a death row inmate. Concurrently, Walter encountered Lance Sweets, who observed him in an attempt to evaluate Walter's mental fitness to consult on federal cases. On another front, Willa attempted to navigate the local social scene. Sadly, while the premiere left me very excited for the future of The Finder , this episode seemed to curb some of that enthusiasm. Read More... //

The Finder “Bullets” Review

Bones  fans were treated to a guest appearance  by Dr. Lance Sweets in "Bullets," the second episode of The Finder . As an FBI psychologist , he was asked (by the network ) to go to Florida  and evaluate Walter (remind viewers  that it’s a spin-off show). Because I love Sweets, I actually wouldn’t have minded this except for the fact that he wasn’t just evaluating Walter to make sure he was competent enough to lend his unique skill to FBI investigations . He claimed that he was there to make that determination for every government organization, including the US Marshalls, which would have made Deputy Isabel very sad, not to mention putting a damper in her and Walter’s sex life. I have a feeling agencies, be they the CIA or the local PD, would rather conduct their own evaluations than have the FBI tell them who they can or cannot consult with. This week’s object was a bullet from the 80?s that, if found, would prove that AD Skinner (as he will always be known to me) was innocent of a cop killing and shouldn’t have been about to die in Florida’s electric chair. Add in the fact that the swampy crime scene  had been turned into a storage center and Walter’s task seemed impossible. Read More... //  

'The Finder': Leo Proves Very Protective Of Willa

Trading in on the notion that there can be an element of fun in mystery solving shows, the "Bones" spin-off "The Finder" (Thu., 9 p.m. EST on Fox) finds its groove almost immediately in the pilot. Walter (Geoff Stults) has an uncanny ability -- that may actually be a form of brain damage -- to find things. He saved Leo Knox (Michael Clarke Duncan) from killing man and earned a loyal partner in the process. The team is rounded out by Willa (Maddie Hasson) as the troubled teen who lives at the bar Geoff works out of. She's there by order of the court and under the watchful eye of a probation officer who'd rather see her in jail, with an agenda of her own. She's also under the de facto protection of Leo, who's really taken to her. In fact, when Willa is caught in the line of fire by some dangerous men looking for their drugs from this week's client, Leo is there like a freight train to take them down before they even know what's happening. Walter and Leo are helped in their cases by U.S. Marshal Isabel Zambada (Mercedes Masohn), and vice-versa. Walter is a little off socially, tending to say what's on his mind regardless of the consequences, so Leo acts as a sort of conscience and filter of normalcy as well, while Zambada is a much-needed professional liaison. It's the kind of simple television formula USA has built a brand identity out of. Read More... //

The Finder Review: Nice Recovery!

Tonight, the world got introduced to The Finder, Walter Sherman, and his colleagues for a second time in " An Orphan Walks Into a Bar ." Most will remember The Finder as a backdoor pilot episode that aired during the sixth season of Bones . While I wasn't too keen on the idea of this show moving forward to stand alone as its own show, I am proud to declare that I am a convert with high confidence in its potential. The Finder has come a long and compelling way from where it was in the Spring of 2011. Read More... //
