The Finder Review: Lesser Evils

by at . Comments

Shots fired, mobsters cursed and "Voodoo Undo" made this episode of The Finder a fun hour.

Willa & Walter At a Witchcraft Store

Whether you believe in voodoo or not, what was not hard to believe was its importance to the episode, especially when it came to the many ways in which it both saved and almost killed Walter.

One minute a medallion from the Scorpion witch prevents a bullet from ripping through his chest, but the next minute she's making him bleed from the wound...That's some craycray stuff!

So was the idea that a mobster could even be called a mobster with so many bad things happening to him. Mobsters usually have to be suave, sophisticated and altogether ruthless to get any real respect from me. This guy just seemed like blundering idiot.

Then again, that had to be the point, didn't it.

I was fairly surprised that Leo set this one out for as long as he did. Granted, there was some disagreement about how much this guy really deserved to be helped, but he always protects Walter.

Which he eventually realized he should have done once Walter almost got shot to death by the mobster's right-hand man.

It was an interesting and important moment shared between Leo and Isabel in the hospital hallway. I always really enjoy watching those two interact, especially in their concern for Walter. If there's one thing they can ever agree on, it's Walter's safety.

Other highlights:

  • Walter's Rube Goldberg machine in the backyard. Very cool way to let "the spirits" guide him to the answer.
  • Willa and Isabel sharing another great bonding moment in the car.
  • The possible return of Icepick man. He's got super-villain potential.

Are you looking forward to next week's season finale yet? Look's like we're going to get to meet some of Walter's family.

An episode of The Finder I would love to see is a crossover episode with the live action television adaption of Ranma ½. The special stars Yui Aragaki as Akane, with Kento Kaku and Natsuna Watanabe playing male and female Ranma respectively.[15] It would be interesting to see Walter in Japan and in Japan his eccentricies wouldn’t even be noticed. Maybe the father of one of the fiancées Genma sold Ranma to goes to the ends of the earth. Or better yet maybe they could hire someone to play Pantyhose Taro. He could go to the end of the earth and ask Walter for the or maybe even pantyhose taro he could ask him to whereabouts of the Demon Master who sleeps beneath the Beer Stone.�

this series just gets better and more entertaining every episode. I can absolutely follow Walters thought process but only after he explains it to me, but amazing that Walter's brain went that direction first. I really hope that they can find a way to keep this well written, visually amusing and well acted series another year. I love the characters (even Willa is growing on me) but Leo and Walter are amazing. Isobel is great.
