Also, on a side note. Psych, Burn Notice, etc are on different networks i.e. USA Network and not on Fox. I liked that it was a different type of story that could go in multiple directions and is not yet another murder/cop/medical same old same old show.

I thought it was awesome! I would totally watch that show.

Terrible!
There is already BURN NOTICE, PSYCH, THE MENTALIST, even HOUSE to an extent. Do we really need ANOTHER show about a quirky and brilliant dude with keen powers of observation?
This was not BONES. Tacky, slipshod backdoor pilots are so HAPPY DAYS.

Blah.

Fiona lost her Irish accent on Burn Notice after a few episodes. The producers of this show should do the same or it will get canceled. Better yet replace Burrows with Jaime Pressly.

Awkward, stiff acting with an awkward, wobbly plot. Taking advantage of the loyal Bones audience to hawk a shaky pilot seems inconsiderate and greedy.

Erm, it's not that London accents are awful (thanks for that, Megan) - Saffron Burrows is indeed English and southern, but she's posh southern. What you're hearing is a posh girl trying to do a rough cockney - and doing it so awfully I genuinely struggled to remember whether she was english or not. Just cause she's english however does not mean she can do regional accents (I know I certainly can't!). I'd be interested in the show if she'd drop the stupid cockney.

I think the reason the majority of you are sour with this episode is because no head way was made on you're precious "will they,wont they" obsession in Bones and Booth,but to each his own.

As for me,I would totally watch The Finder if it gets picked up as a series. I think Geoff plays Walter very well also he and MCD are great together if you actually watch the episode you can feel their chemistry through the screen. Ike might be a miscast though lol She wasn't bad, I just think she should tone it down some, less annoying sidekick and more level headed bartender chick who is a Pilot like she is supposed to be.

The Jawman said it all.... I would have used other words.
But I agree with his feelings/thoughts.

I think that I would check out The Finder to see how it would go. I enjoyed watching the small glimpse of quirks that help to realize things that most people wouldn't even notice. I liked his legal advisor character, he has different depths...not so sure on the pilot/bartender chick. She is introduced first as just his bartender and not that involved, then shortly thereafter is trying to The Finders brain healed by some random friend that she knew about from the past. A lot of unanswered questions, but I guess that was the point to a certain extent. Giving you a small taste with holes so that you will be interested in filling those holes when the show itself comes around. I did miss the B&B crew. I was a little confused during most of the episode wondering why so much focus was on The Finder and where were B&B. I of course thought maybe thats what the network was doing, but only coming on here did I get the straight answer that it was done on purpose.

The idea for the Finder didn't draw my attention, I will continue to watch Bones but not the Finder if it does evolve into an actual show. I thought it was sweet that Walter brought back the science medal and newspaper clipping to Brennan, and the moment about Booth and Parker was sweet, but otherwise I really didn't care.
