The Finder 1.1 “An Orphan Walks Into a Bar” Review
This night we got to see The Finder, Walter Sherman alongside his friends, again, during “An Orphan Walks Into a Bar.”
You will probably remember him as a backdoor pilot who appeared in the known TV series, Bones, during the 6th season, although many people didn’t quite like the idea that it is moving along to make a show separated from bones and to hold his own, but after people viewed the show, they became very supportive and started to have great faith that it will turn out to be a great show.
If you think more about it, The Finder did actually develop a lot from when it started back in 2011.
Looking further in the show itself, you can obviously see that, for example judging on the character of Willa Monday, acted by Maddie Hasson, she has a very complicated character. Another example is the team that consists of Leo, Walter and Isabel. A team with a mix of different characters coping together. And a female as a leader, Mercedes Mahone who came in the show instead of Saffron Burrows. Everyone just admired the role of Mercedes, as she gave her character a bossy US marshal feel, that would do anything to catch her target. So by far, its reviews amongst viewers changed greatly.
And the thing that grabbed the viewers’ attention wasn’t just the acting or the characters themselves, but the amazing writing as well, everyone agrees that is has improved very much from last season, when we had Walter solving his case with the help of a man who is already dead, this is probably the most hated part of last year’s opener. It was simply unneeded and made a lot of people feel uncomfortable.
With everyone hoping that these changes keep happening. And as mentioned before, the storyline of the opening episode was great, everyone enjoyed following the story line of Walter finding copper’s dad. It emphasized and stressed in making Walter really be what he is, a Finder, the great ways he discovers and follows clues, and the way he thinks, he is as good as monk, but without the weird habits and the OCD. If things continue being like this, the ratings will fly sky high.
At first, most people wasn’t happy with the very predictable, unintended circumstances that lead to most of the “findings”, like the case with finding Cooper’s father, the idea that he is a drug smuggler was very obvious and predictable, although we found out later that it was for people who need these drugs medically, it makes people want to watch to the end of the show to see what will occur.
To sum things up, it is a great midseason premiere, although a lot of things happened last season that made people be against the show since it started.
