The Finder Review: Find Your Way

by at . Comments

A recovered forgery, a father's dying wish and an Uncle's irreversible decision.

It's official: after only thirteen episode, we say goodbye to The Finder for good with this episode. The positive news is "The Boy With the Bucket" certainly made it worth while.

Walter Visits His Father

This was hands down my favorite episode of The Finder. It's a real shame that it was the last. After Fox released a list of its renewals, the world found out that this freshman show wasn't one of them.

Then it delivered a hard-hitting and emotional episode. The kind it could have been delivering every week.

Not only did we meet Walter's brother, but we learned about Walter's strained relationship with his father that stemmed from his brain injury. In the end, though, they found their way back to each other.

It would have been nice if his dad had just said he wanted to see him.

The fallout from Walter's search for his mother landed him in federal jail and Isabel lost her badge. That could have been avoided had Walter's father just been honest. I can't believe we'll never get to find out what happens next!

It was great to see Annette O'Toole back on the small screen. I know I haven't seen her anywhere that I can remember since the end of Smallville's decade run on the CW.

The same goes for Willa and Timo's story. Uncle Shad made it official, even starting sending out the invitations. It was really important to me that we find out what was so important about Willa and Timo getting married. Apparently it's because Willa is a good liar. Made you feel bad for Timo in a way. Even so, Willa struck out on her own. Where to, we'll never know.

Were you satisfied with The Finder's conclusion? Are you as saddened as I am that it won't be coming back?

    I firmly believe...the decision makers are simply guessing & winging it. They're cancelling "The Finder" is clear proof. The show IS funny AND smart. The plots were JUST starting to develop. At this point, they can even work in MDC's passing into the Willa situation...but hey, WHAT DO THE VIEWERS KNOW?...Right?
    Realize, you've just given viewers ANOTHER reason to change the channel. DUH...

    I think it is such a dissapointment that the people who get to say yes and no to which shows to keep are obviously morons they should bring back the finder and cancel all those reality shows.

    Why of why do they always get rid of the best shows ! Please bring it back.

    To Fox, What a shame you canceled The Finder. My husband and I watched it faithfully every week. It reminds me of the show psych with the comedy investigation. Some people like a good comedy with some mystery and THE FINDER has both. It kept us entertained. Why get rid of a good thing that the fans of this show obviously enjoy seeing. I have seen some lame shows that last a long time, so why not keep the good ones that people obviously like. Food for thought.

    My daughter and I were so sad to hear of the passing of Michael Clarke Duncan. We enjoyed watching him in movies and on TV. In addition, we can't believe they canceled The Finder. It was one of our favorite shows!

    Too bad that Michael Clarke Duncan (Leo Knox) died today (yesterday for me). He was a brilliant actor, he will be sorely be missed. The series won't be the same without him.
