    Dull and monotonous this show bring absolutely nothing new to the table, and the almost all the actors over do they're parts, which will make you roll your your eyes, gaze off the tv and see what else is on.

    Boring, cliche, and cheesy. Don't get me wrong I love shows that revolve around super talents or abilities. And up to now almost all of them have been pretty good. Psych, Lie to Me, Mentalist, Suits, John Doe. These are all amazing shows. Finder is frankly mediocre.

    Absurdity of an old-fashioned sitcom without the laughs. Totally implausible plots and dialogue that don't payoff as a normal procedural or as a comedy. Probably would have worked better in the quirky arena if Fox had let them keep the Saffron Burrows character instead of a generic pretty brunette and a teenage blonde that doesn't fit into the story.

    The premise might make sense if Stults had a Rain Man intensity. Instead he's laid back and scruffy. [6 Feb 2012, p.40]

    The Finder is as agreeable as a contract on onion paper that says you, the viewer, will not question implausible moments or snicker when is limp and the acting staged.

    Fans of quirky procedurals will likely find The Finder a dependable way to lose an hour.
