    We had high hopes for "The Finder" after thourghly enjoying its introduction on Bones. Saddly, the premier eposoide was some what of a let down. The cast was changed, roles altered and that ridiculous part of a 2LT being a gate guard (stickler for details since I am a 20 year vet). The Finder found out information much too easy and what was up with finding Fogerty's guitar so easy.

    Did you notice how much effort it took Fogerty to walk off screen and how much older he looked as compared to when he was singing?

    I give this eposoide a C.

    I always give a show like this a chance regardless of how I feel about its pilot.

    With that said, by Episode 4 I'll need a better director working with a script that contains the humor we saw but offers more depth than a Looney Tunes cartoon.

    He was a gate guard as a result of being busted down, they kinda discussed it in the show.

    I wasn't impressed, but not taking it off the series links just yet.

    We are staying with the show for the time being. Btw, even if an officer is reduced in rank to a 2Lt does not mean he becomes a gate guard. Gates are either manned by quailied military police troops or at government installations by federal security personnel. With that said in the case of that Finder eposoide we can chalk the scene up to "it's TV". :)

    We'll likely give it a few episodes as well. Generally we do, unless the ratings are so bad for the first two episodes that you don't think there's a point in it.

    However, this one has to gain something from American Idol to have a chance.
