Bones > Bones Review: "The Finder" > Comments Page 2
I thought it was awesome! I would totally watch that show.
There is already BURN NOTICE, PSYCH, THE MENTALIST, even HOUSE to an extent. Do we really need ANOTHER show about a quirky and brilliant dude with keen powers of observation?
This was not BONES. Tacky, slipshod backdoor pilots are so HAPPY DAYS.
Fiona lost her Irish accent on Burn Notice after a few episodes. The producers of this show should do the same or it will get canceled. Better yet replace Burrows with Jaime Pressly.
Awkward, stiff acting with an awkward, wobbly plot. Taking advantage of the loyal Bones audience to hawk a shaky pilot seems inconsiderate and greedy.
Erm, it's not that London accents are awful (thanks for that, Megan) - Saffron Burrows is indeed English and southern, but she's posh southern. What you're hearing is a posh girl trying to do a rough cockney - and doing it so awfully I genuinely struggled to remember whether she was english or not. Just cause she's english however does not mean she can do regional accents (I know I certainly can't!). I'd be interested in the show if she'd drop the stupid cockney.
I think the reason the majority of you are sour with this episode is because no head way was made on you're precious "will they,wont they" obsession in Bones and Booth,but to each his own.
As for me,I would totally watch The Finder if it gets picked up as a series. I think Geoff plays Walter very well also he and MCD are great together if you actually watch the episode you can feel their chemistry through the screen. Ike might be a miscast though lol She wasn't bad, I just think she should tone it down some, less annoying sidekick and more level headed bartender chick who is a Pilot like she is supposed to be.
The Jawman said it all.... I would have used other words.
But I agree with his feelings/thoughts.
I think that I would check out The Finder to see how it would go. I enjoyed watching the small glimpse of quirks that help to realize things that most people wouldn't even notice. I liked his legal advisor character, he has different depths...not so sure on the pilot/bartender chick. She is introduced first as just his bartender and not that involved, then shortly thereafter is trying to The Finders brain healed by some random friend that she knew about from the past. A lot of unanswered questions, but I guess that was the point to a certain extent. Giving you a small taste with holes so that you will be interested in filling those holes when the show itself comes around. I did miss the B&B crew. I was a little confused during most of the episode wondering why so much focus was on The Finder and where were B&B. I of course thought maybe thats what the network was doing, but only coming on here did I get the straight answer that it was done on purpose.
The idea for the Finder didn't draw my attention, I will continue to watch Bones but not the Finder if it does evolve into an actual show. I thought it was sweet that Walter brought back the science medal and newspaper clipping to Brennan, and the moment about Booth and Parker was sweet, but otherwise I really didn't care.
What a fucking waste of time.
I enjoyed it. I thought it was quirky and funny. I was a little annoyed, in that I was expecting an episode of Bones and got a different show. Still I would watch it as its own show. PLEASE however make the chick lose the ridiculous cockney accent. That was NOT an Australian accent. If it was intended to be Australian.. they need a language course.
She was definitely English and definitely southern (i.e. London.)London accents are awful and because the cast are obviously not English it makes the accent stand out that much more.
So that is a real idea for a programme? I could possibly watch it if so. But really didn't like the fact that they used Bones to promote it if so! Bones only has a few episodes left and to even call this a filler episode is incorrect with the amount of screen time the different cast got... not Bones at all! So as a Bones episode terrible but as a pilot for another show not too bad.
Ok. Annoying female sidekick with a bad English twang... surprising as she is English... Annoying male lead who comes across as half nice/half p***k and would have been a metric tonne better if played by Ben Browder. Who I think could pull off that sort of role and not make you want to punch him half the time. The only cast member I even sort of connected with was Michael Clarke Duncan’s because I really like that guy. For no reason he's just a big Teddy... if that Teddy had big teeth and could rip you apart. All of which makes the concept even more vexing when its stuffed into a Bones ep.
The idea for the show could be good with a few minor (and a major main cast Ben Browder shaped) tweaks, but there shouldn't have been any link whatsoever with Bones. No need for it, they probably won't clash again and if they really did want the link to branch off a show using a Bones cast member Sweets could be the ticket in a psych profiler helps catch people cliché way. Which can still be d
Absolutely will watch The Finder if scheduled. But the chick needs to cool it with the accent. It was too forced and disconcerting.
"MACHETE" Danny Trejo as a holy figure? Interesting casting, but I'm LOLOLMAO!!
I liked "Burn Notice" at first as a serious show..then they introduced the silly brother and smokin' mother and it got comedic. "The Finder", in "Bones" last night, reminded me of "Burn" and interrupted the best show on TV for fluff..especially finding the sport medal a la "Harry Potter" magic.we have watched all the episodes and I think it will happen between B&B! "Bones" is about interesting people and plots. Gine "The Finder" a Saturday morning slot!
I'll watch "The Finder". I liked this episode enough to give it a chance.
That was obviously an Irish accent! She had a total Irish thug confidence attitude thing going on too. And she looks like an irish chick?
.. That was SO NOT an Australian accent. Cockney. Not Australian. I live in Australia.
I will watch the finder but bones will always be first this new series looks like it would be good but not as good as Bones
I found that they integrated the regular Bones cast well enough, they allowed "The Finder" to take the stage on Bones so it could get some publicity, this is something a lot of shows do and it's cool, there will be a regular episode of Bones next week, so it's nothing to freak out about...
I thought Walter Sherman as the finder was adorable, I thought Ike's CLEARLY AUSTRALIAN accent was endearing and that Leo was really funny. I would definitely watch it if it became it's own show!
I think the episode was great,I love the way Hart found enough balance to introduce these new Characters and still over shadow the Bones characters. I find Walter interesting and would love to see this picked up.
I didn't like the finder at all. I was expecting more 'Bones" to be in there and missed seeing one of my favorite shows. I didn't like Ike's accent and saw no reason for the guy to be in his underware. It seems like they are going to do a lot of weird stuff and blame it all on his brain injury. I don't think the finder is going to be on my must watch list next season.
Apart from the fact that this was not an episode of Bones in anything but name, I didn't mind the Finder episode and might watch it if it wasn't for Ike's truly terrible accent! What is it meant to be anyway? I've a nasty feeling it's meant to be British and I've got to tell you NOBODY speaks like that here in Britain. It made the whole thing unwatchable for me.
I was utterly disappointed by this episode. I, like others, was expecting an episode of Bones and not this backdoor pilot. I stopped watching about halfway through when my disappointment reached its zenith.
First off, the tone of the pilot was entirely different from that of Bones. I actually spent that little while wondering to myself, there was hardly any flow and I had absolutely no attachment to any of the characters. All of a sudden they start talking backstory, Danny Trejo as a bishop... What is this?
Easily the worst episode of Bones I've ever watched, and I've had disappointments in the past.
I was thoroughly bored by this episode. I guess it was more to do with what we've come to expect when we switch on "Bones". We expect to see forensic science-based crime solving. This episode provided almost none of that. And I agree, the part of Walter stripping down to his boxers was really unnecessary (also it was so predictable that his boxers would be of a quirky colour like red!).
I seriously doubt I'd watch "The Finder" for more than an episode or two, just to get the feel of the show.
Overall, the episode was a big yawn.
