Storyline

Walter Sherman is an Iraq war veteran who has suffered brain damage in an IED explosion. The brain damage triggers in Walter the ability to "find" things, he sees connections between seemingly unrelated events, objects or people that other investigators would miss. Walter is assisted by his "legal advisor" and bar owner Leo Knox, US Deputy Marshal Isabel Zambada, and teen parolee and thief Willa Monday, who is serving her probation with the team. The brain damage that gives Walter his "finder" talent has also left him with a case of paranoia and other mental idiosyncrasies. Walter refuses treatment because he does not want to lose his talent. The last time Walter failed to find someone, it was the IED explosive expert that was responsible for blowing up Walter's Humvee and killing 6 members of his unit. Written by Hamish Blair

Love it
28 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show is just good, fun entertainment. Sometimes it's nice to be entertained and not have to think things through. I love the cast, great chemistry all around.

Plus, love the idea of living in a bar at the end of the world somewhere. Very appealing.

I'm not crazy about the gypsy connection and stealing stuff; I like Isabel and her connection with Walter. I like the "family" they have carved out for themselves. I like the BEST FRIENDS feeling; also how the four of them watch out for each other. You get the sense of genuine caring.

Of course it's nonsense. When I want Drama, I watch Dexter. For fun, I will watch The Finder.
