Sam Nozik's beetles-eaten corpse in a Florida glade is identified from his acrylic eye. He worked in a Miami museum, from which a treasure map to a Spanish galleon was stolen. Booth grudgingly allows his superstitious former foreign army tour acquaintance Walter Sherman (and his team of two) to use his 'tracing gift' to find and retrieve the treasure. They do, after consulting bishop Edward Galano on period navigation, and find the corpse, but meanwhile the diver herself has been murdered too. Booth meanwhile comes to terms with his grudge against Walter as 'insensitive' MP. Written by KGF Vissers

Pretty Awesome
21 April 2011 | by grecneSee all my reviews

The cast mesh really well and like how Walter's keen sense of detection help him find the lost articles. My wife and I were watching "Bones" like we always do and I said to her this would be a great spin-off and when I check it out was happy to see it was going to be one! I was reading the TV Guide article about the producer saying he's afraid it won't take off and I totally disagree. He also mention something about possible crossovers with "Bones". Again I disagree and the "Finder" or what ever the new title is going to be will be able to stand on it's own. Besides I am one of those "Bone" fans who wouldn't want anything to come between Booth and Bones. Because I didn't like it when Booth hooked up with the reporter and was relieved when that was over.
