    I wanted to add that Leonard Nimoy makes for an interesting guest star. For some reason he looks way better than the time we saw him last during Olivia’s incursion to the other side. That first time, he looked old, stiff, and lifeless. This time he looked younger, livelier, more energetic and with better hair and a wicked smile.

    I don’t know how old he is, but he still gots it.

    @Meg – the Terra Nova vs. Fringe comparison doesn’t work very well.
    Fringe costs Fox A LOT less than Terra Nova. Fox would lose more money on Terra Nova even if it kept getting twice the audience of Fringe.

    Fox your crazy !! Your going to lose a lot of viewers for all shows. When you cancel good show like the finder.

    Fringe is an absolutely unique, mind-bending, and thought provoking series… A1… I watch and re-watch each epi just so I don’t miss a single thing!!!
    The FInder, in strict contrast, is a lighthearted, easy on the brain, easy on the eyes Geoff Stults, adorable Willa, awesome gentle-giant (unless provoked) Leo, and the beautiful, driven, Isabel… perfect casting on all counts. This is such a fun show to watch. I love the location, the chemistry between all the principles, story lines are believable, it is a shame that this entertaining show has been canceled. This show offers us “clean”, good fun, with just a bit of mystery, and an ending not always happy but generally fulfilled. My husband and I are extremely sad to see this show go as we were hoping for a few more season’s of one of our favorite shows. Please, please, please reconsider…I would watch it on any day, in any time-slot!!!!!

    I feel the same I love the finder it was good clean and me and my husband looked forward to it together I wish fox would at least have done something better we deserved more than that it honestly makes me not want to watch fox they have canceled so many shows I loved but this one I’m especially sad about.

    If it wasn’t for Bones I wouldn’t watch Fox. They are cancelling Fringe, Finder and Terra Nova….Seriously??? I am going back to my books… This is has long passed the stage of pissed off. Between Fox and ABC they cancel the great shows, keep these BS reality shows. If I wanted to watch somebodies lif eI would watch my neighbors out of my window.

  • Finder Find SyFy

    Hope someone reads this and passes it on. The Finder would be a great addition to the SyFy Channel line up – and production costs can’t be much. But you’d have to keep the writers and the cast – it’s the dialogue and the cast unity that makes the show great.
