Going Gaga Over the New Series “THE FINDER”
By HomeRearedChef on February 08, 2012
From the first time we saw the cast of “The Finder” debut on one of our favorite shows, “Bones,” we just knew we would be seeing them on their own series soon. And indeed we have. And now that we’ve started watching season one, weekly episodes, we just can’t get enough of them!
The actors have been well cast; they have believable characters, full of energy and great chemistry, and, well, I can’t help falling in-love with them. And I just can’t wait for the next episode to air; and that is just how addictive the show has become.
Walter Sherman, played by Geoff Stults, the title character, is super mellow and very quirky, and absolutely gorgeous and lovable. The Deputy Marshal, Isabel Zambada, played by Mercedes Mashöhn, Walter’s love interest, is sexy and beautiful and believably tough when necessary. And then there’s Leo Knox, played by none other than Michael Clarke Duncan (I first got a glimpse of this massive man on “The Green Mile” and have loved him ever since), now HE is intimidating, while at the same time exuding the gentleness of a cuddly teddy bear.
Walter Sherman, a former Army MP, who encountered an explosive in Iraq, leaving him brain damaged, is a man who can now find anything. Before the accident in Iraq, he already had a gift at finding people and things. But after the accident his brain worked even better. He became excellent at finding whatever and whoever he went in search of. But once he takes on a job he must see it through!
Walter, with his “Finder Power”, handles the cases—doing all the searching—while Leo (Michael Clarke Duncan), the obvious muscle, and a very sharp lawyer, handles the finances and all other arrangements needed.
If you are a fan of Bones, the wonderful interaction between these characters will get you hooked too!
