From the creator of the hit series Bones comes The Finder, a quirky, one-hour procedural centering on a remarkable man with an eccentric personality and a unique gift to help others recover what they've lost. Iraq war veteran Walter Sherman (Geoff Stults) gained a reputation in his army days as being the go-to guy for tracking down insurgents and deserters and finding improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Unfortunately one IED found Walter before he could find it, resulting in severe brain damage with a lasting and unexpected effect. Walter's brother-in-arms Leo Knox (Michael Clarke Duncan) is a philosopher as well as Walter's legal advisor. Leo keeps a close eye on unruly teenager Willa Monday (Maddie Hasson). Walter has an on-again off-again relationship with Deputy U.S. Marshal Isabel Zambada (Mercedes Masöhn), a beautiful and focused cop-on-the-rise who is using her career in law enforcement to climb to the top of the heap in life. Thanks to the help and guidance of Leo, as well as a patchwork of indebted connections, he ultimately finds meaning in his own life by finding someone or something other people have lost.

This show had its (unofficial) premier episode on the April 21, 2011 episode of Bones (titled "The Finder"). I hate reviews that give away too much so I will just say that if you like action, adventure, mystery and a bit of treasure hunting – this show will not disappoint. For me, the idea behind the story was great and the cast is quirky enough to be fun and interesting without overdoing it. I can’t wait for the (real) premier.
Looking Forward To It
I am defently looking forward to this show. "The Finder" is by far, my favorite Bones episode. I loved the interactions between Walter, and his "legal advisor", and bar tender, who not only keep him out of too much trouble, but offer thier own special abillities in his searches. This show is right up my alley, and I am looking forward to the premere.
Love of Bones
I love Bones and this is a fantastic show and I can't wait to watch it. The Story line is fantastic and I love this mix of characters.
