Fridays are normally kind of slow, but tonight is definitely an exception, because not only are there five season finales tonight, there are also several other great episodes to round out our work week. There are so many, in fact, that Megan & I both just couldn’t leave it at one recommendation…and I couldn’t limit mine to two! *laugh* So read on to find out what we think you should be watching tonight. 🙂
Jenny’s Choice #1
My first pick tonight is the finale of The Finder…for several reasons. First, I love the show. Second, I love when series star Geoff Stults and his brother George guest star on the other’s series (Geoff guest starred on 7th Heaven a couple of times when George was starring. Loved that. lol). And finally…well, it was announced this week that the show has been canceled. So tonight is going to be the last episode. Very sad for those of us that enjoy it!. On the last episode, it was a lot of fun seeing how each of the characters dealt with all the voodoo stuff. It was all sorts of craziness. First, Isabel was shot during a gang shootout at a funeral, in which a priest was killed and her partner on the stakeout was shot. One of the gang members then comes to Walter and asks him to find a voodoo doll that someone made of him. Isabel told him he had to do it, but Leo refused to participate (until later, when Walter himself was shot…). Luckily, a protection medal made for Walter by the “good witch” Willa brought to them earlier in the case saved him, and he was hurt but ok. Again, it was a fun episode because of the way everyone reacted to the voodoo and witchcraft aspects. 🙂
The biggest question for me going into tonight’s finale is Willa. All season, it’s been gearing up to her having to marry Timo. I can’t see the show letting that happen, so how will she get out of it? Will she wise up and say “Screw you!” to her gypsy family for good? By the way, if you are on Twitter, you should be following series creator & all around funny guy, @HartHanson. Tell him I sent you. 😉
On tonight’s series finale, “The Boy with the Bucket,” when Walter’s older brother Langston (guest star George Stults) comes to town, he asks Walter to visit their dying father (guest star John Ashton, Gone Baby Gone). As his dying wish, his father asks Walter to find his first love, Walter and Langston’s mother (guest star Annette O’Toole, Smallville). Taking on the most important search of his life, Walter battles obstacles which may prove to be insurmountable as his father’s health rapidly declines. Meanwhile, Willa is being forced to marry Timo by their Uncle Shadrack.
