Did You Know?


Dr Lance Sweets is the first character from Bones (2005), which is the original TV series of which The Finder (2012) is a spin off. See more »


Walter finds one of two missing bullets after concluding that he (and his client) had incorrectly guessed the location of the shooter because of an echo, substantially changing the bullet's trajectory (in fact, nearly reversing its direction). However, he operates for the rest of the investigation seeking the second bullet on the (correct) belief that his client successfully hit the shooter. If his client was so incorrect in his guess as to the shooter's position as to so substantially change the trajectory of the bullet, there should be no way that he could accurately hit a moving target, at night, with a pistol, within three seconds as stated.

Walter Sherman: Say you're a bad guy. You shoot at a cop. Cop shoots back. You got a bullet inside you. Can't go to the hospital, they report that sort of stuff. So where you gonna go?
Dr. Lance Sweets: Veterinarian!... I can evaulate and help, you know. I do it all the time at home.
Walter Sherman: Bad guy kills the vet to wipe the trail clean.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Isabel Zambada: Yeah, okay. I've got to admit. Sounds very Florida.
Dr. Lance Sweets: Do you now feel compelled to find this second bullet?
Walter Sherman: No.
Dr. Lance Sweets: That's good.
Walter Sherman: I feel impelled.
[Walter leaves]
Deputy U.S. Marshal Isabel Zambada: So... is that better?

How To Find A Bullet?
21 January 2012 | by joaotomas_10See all my reviews

In this episode of The Finder we see our main character searching for two missing bullets which for some people might be too dificult but not for Walter Sherman.We also get a special appearance for Dr.Lance Sweets from Bones.

I liked this better than the first because it seems to me that the jobs are gonna get harder from my point of view and it makes me wanna see more so i can find out how this genius man finds the thing he is looking for.Also the storyline is accompanied by some good jokes which makes it a mixed ride of events (just like Bones).

I gave this a 9/10 since it was a solid episode and i hope to see more of this in the future.
