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

Great Show on my Do Not Miss List

First off, if there was a way to give 20 stars I would. After years of CSI type shows, this is a breath of fresh air. The plots have unusual twists and the cast performs admirably.

I love the character of Willa, played to the tee by Maddie Hasson. A blond female youth role that is not the teen angst with a side of privileged cheer leading princess is such a refreshing change. Her character is strong while at the same time vulnerable, making one root for her.

The title character, the Finder, portrayed by Geoff Stults would drive you nuts as a friend but as entertainment he's a hoot. Locating the missing (fill in the blank) through a combination of observational skills and the ability to see what's going on outside the box, the route from A to B is never a straight line and is always entertaining.

Michael Clarke Duncan as Leo is a gem. He is actually the soul of the show and, in addition to being talented, has the most wonderful voice on television. I could listen to that man reading the phone book! All in all, this is one entertaining show that I hope has a long life and keeps writing the quarter bubble off plot lines. Well done all!
