Bones 6.19 Test Runs The Finder

A fun Bones 6.19 tonight, as series creator Hart Hanson introduces us to a new team, which could well have its own show, if the currents of public approval go the right way.

That would be fine with me.  Walter Sherman (Geoff Stults) plays an Iraqi war-vet, whose brain injury of some sort has given him the power to find missing things (based on Richard Greener's The Locator book series).  Latulippe, his sidekick, is played by Saffron Burrows, who put in a good year with Jeff Goldblum on Law & Order: Criminal Intent last season.  Leo Knox (Michael Clarke Duncan), the legal advisor, completes the trio, and they put on a pretty good show of wise-cracking and action.

The connection to Bones starts with Booth, who served with Sherman in Iraq.  They had a bad interaction, which Bones of all people gets Booth to better understand and come to terms with.   Bones does this because she's soon very kindly disposed to Sherman - he found a long-lost newspaper clipping of her and her mother.

The case involves a map - apropos the Finder - to a sunken 1774 galleon.  Its resolution hinges on different systems of longitude, and the fact that the Jesuit system was unexpectedly used in the case of this map.  The Finder at this point looks to be a different kind of narrative tangentially connected to Bones, and I'm certainly up for seeing more.
