The Finder: A Keeper or a Loser and Weeper?
Posted May 5, 2012 @ 11:20 PM
This show is really flowing nicely. The character arcs are moving at a reasonable pace and although I have no idea if they'll renew the show, I think next week's episode should have some things at least resolved, like the status of Timo and Willa's engagement, some more Isabel/Walter relationship and a bit more maybe on Leo and his dead family.
Please Fox, renew the show. It's such a different genre, a good mix of comedy and drama, and I'd hate to lose it. I can see a lot of potential in the show.

Walter's contraption this episode, however, was so ridiculous that I laughed a good two minutes and almost missed why it was the Good Witch that was really behind all this. That was a nifty piece of engineering, that motive machine.

So, with HH bring Walter back to Bones for cameos (assuming Geoff Stults doesn't immediately snag a new show), I wonder?

BUT no way did Touch deserve renewal with its crappy numbers
Yeah, out of the 3 shows in that article, the Finder is the only one I kept watching past the 3rd episode. It wasn't the best thing on tv but it was fun and light and Willa has grown on me.

I'm reading The Knowland Retribution, which is the story of the E-Coli outbreak, the deaths and how they affected people, some murders, and the lawyers and corporate types involved. Walter is hired to find the guy who is shooting everyone. It's a great book. The Lacey Confession, the other Locator book, is about a written confession to the Kennedy assassination, and a guy who comes into possession of it and has to hide. Walter is hired to find the guy and help him hide even better.

Last episode airs this Friday.
Have all the episodes been aired yet? I'm always hoping for more.

I did not know this series/character was also based on a book series. I am sad that it was canceled (although admittedly the episodes had some wild quality swings) so I will have to get a hold of these to ease the pain a bit.

I now kinda hate the marshalls, though I understand the need to bring Walt in, yet the last image we have of Walter breaks my heart.
And Willa took the chimes Leo gave her.

Argh. Doesn't USA Network like shows about "characters?" would they pick up this show?
Having done my share of hitchiking when I was Willa's age, I know she is doomed to misfortune despite her smile.

I knew Willa was going to run away and it was still heartbreaking. Where is she gonna go? I absolutely expected Leo and Isabel, in the end, to ask Walter to help find Willa and that could have been season 2. But now, the show's done so there's no resolution to that. And poor Walter. Damn, if that's how he reacts when he doesn't find something, then I'd be scared of him. I didn't expect him (although maybe I should have) to be a killer when he doesn't find things. I expected a major breakdown, maybe depression and suicide, but not him actually killing people. Poor guy; he just completely broke down, with the painting not being real to his family's problems. I'm glad we got a lot of background on him, though. It was needed and it was nice to know that he wasn't like this before the explosion.
I want more. Like, right now. And it sucks that we won't get it. I'm hoping SOMEBODY might pick it up because the finale was explosive. My favourite episode to date and it was powerful and less humourous.

USA Network should totally pick this show up, but if they don't I wish we could get a TV movie where Walter gets acquitted and Leo hires him to find Willa and bring her home. As a last ditch option, I'd like Hart Hanson to do what Chris Carter did with "The Lone Gunman" and use an episode of "Bones" next season as a de-facto series finale for our characters.

I need a wrap-up. Walter needs to be left back at Ends of the Earth (and it does matter, to Willa too.)
What exactly was the end of the Winslow Homer business? Leo and Isabel find the patient, so is that just more crap on the crap sundae that Walter has in front of him?
Does Leo even know what Walter did to protect his mom? What kind of thugs do that kind of a takedown minutes after a man has lost his father? (I don't know if I want to know that closing music because it'll always remind me of that ending. Good for the music folks!)
Movie specials, a wind-up on Bones, or a save by USA- I don't care. I just need my dysfunctional family unit back and fighting/saving their corner of the world, thank you.

Anyhoo, in my mind the marshalls are taking Walter down for his own protection against the Evil Cult. His killing them is deemed self defense (they were armed; he was not). Not sure what place would serve as a better witsec location than Ends of the Earth, but maybe they shift filming to Vancouver to save bucks, and Willa, the Young Grasshopper Finder, finds Walter. Maybe Leo and Isabel get put in witsec with Walter. Sorry. Rambling.

Now I feel like writing to USA again and saying, "PLEEEEEEASE!!!"
Ugh. What a finale.
Posted May 12, 2012 @ 11:15 AM
I think I'm gonna go watch the finale again. It was just THAT good.
Posted May 12, 2012 @ 9:08 PM
Walter taking out the 3 guys was a stunner. I was trying to think back over the previous episodes and determine if we had hints that he was capable of this.

Watched that new Common Law - it has the Isabelle playing a bimbo... I mean a whiny piece-of-ass Bimbo. Really?
OK USA, you have her already. Dump the rest of the cast and bring on the Finder folks. See? Easy. Good show - bad show.
You can keep the lovely Sonia from Lost. Walter needs a shrink and she was the only good thing about the show.
Forget Fox...no really. Forget them.
We should send USA STRING! Envelopes full of string. Why not?
