Cinderella Love
29 January 2012 | by joaotomas_10See all my reviews

In this episode of The Finder we see our hero helping a NASA scientist find his Cinderella.This episode was OK, mainly because i thought the main plot of the episode wasn't that appealing.This episode has some funny parts, like when Walter is walking around with feminine shoes and when he is dreaming about Cinderella.Supringsly enough i liked the subplot in this episode which involved Willa and Leo's past.Overall a so-so episode which could have been a tad better.

Also, the scene at the start when the nasa scientist speaks about statistics is also neat.

My Rating: 7/10
