Now in its sixth season fans of the series are fairly set in their opinions. Fans either love or hate the introduction of new characters. They either want Bones and Booth to be together or not be together at all. No matter their likes or dislikes, fans of the series are loyal.
In April of 2011, Bones viewers were treated to one of the more unusual episodes. This in itself is saying quite a lot. The series does not keep to a business as usual format. Booth's tumor surgery and subsequent dream episode is a fine example of twists the show has employed.
The episode titled "Finder" was off the beaten path in two ways. The episode itself was not geared as much around Booth and Bones as it was around a new set of characters. Many fans were even confused by the lack of inclusion of the regular cast. Fear not loyal fans that is the second difference to this particular episode. "Finder" was actually an introduction to a spin off series.
Hason got his inspiration from a series of novels written by Richard Greener, 'The Locator'. The main character, Walter Sherman, is portrayed by Geoff Stults. Sherman is a war veteran with a unique ability to find missing items. His associates are Leo, his legal adviser, who seems a bit more like a bodyguard and Ike, his handler. Leo is played by Michael Clarke Duncan and Ike is portrayed by Saffron Burrows.
While the episode itself was a bit hard to follow, the premise for the new show is interesting. There was a lot of material involved in introducing the potential spin off and it may have done better spread out over two shows than condensed into one. The one thing viewers can be sure of is that Booth does not like Sherman and he is not hesitant to show those feelings.
If "Finder" does indeed become a successful new series it could be well worth watching. If not, the characters could come into play in subsequent "Bones" episodes. The premise was unique and added the type of twist that keeps the show entertaining. Predicting what will or will not happen on the next show is not an easy job.
Do not miss all the twists that keep developing, watch "Bones" on Thursday evenings on FOX at 9 pm ET.
