Storyline

Sam Nozik's beetles-eaten corpse in a Florida glade is identified from his acrylic eye. He worked in a Miami museum, from which a treasure map to a Spanish galleon was stolen. Booth grudgingly allows his superstitious former foreign army tour acquaintance Walter Sherman (and his team of two) to use his 'tracing gift' to find and retrieve the treasure. They do, after consulting bishop Edward Galano on period navigation, and find the corpse, but meanwhile the diver herself has been murdered too. Booth meanwhile comes to terms with his grudge against Walter as 'insensitive' MP. Written by KGF Vissers

Any other kind of promotion would have been better
30 April 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I didn't even know that this episode was meant to promote a "spin-off" show, but it became pretty evident during the first couple minutes. In fact, the new show's characters were so heavily featured that I started wondering and looked it up online, even before the episode finished.

Seriously, if you try to pull a show starter off this way, at least do it so the audience doesn't notice what you're doing. Not to mention don't make a whole lot of Bones fans miss out on an actual Bones episode - because this wasn't one. The new show also won't be a real spin-off, because no actual Bones characters will be in it.

HOWEVER, that being said, the Finder characters ARE interesting and the new show itself might very well be worth watching, especially if they keep it up with the cool music. It just doesn't have ANYTHING to do with Bones.

So, in conclusion: - this = not a Bones episode - new show = not a Bones spin-off - but: possibly interesting to watch - worst part: incredibly lame and absurd promotion idea
