Person of Interest > Person of Interest Review: The Life of Detective Carter > Comments Page 2
Finch can make an omniscient Big Brother database, can make trillions of dollars, but can't make a doll that has the camera placed so that the doll actually faces Fusco?
Worst episode in my opinion the plot was improbable and highly unlikely. Why trust a bum when he could have made everything up cmon now. Way to much screen time for det. Carter.
I've liked Carter well enough since the show started, and since then I've also expected Carter to join up with Reese and Finch eventually, since it's obvious that she has no real chance of catching them, or really any justification for doing so. So, I liked this episode, it seems to be the first episode that's really driving Carter towards the path I predict she will eventually end up, and it was definitely the episode that Carter really needed in order to become more than the woman several steps behind Reese. If the next episode preview is any indication, she's going to end up on the right side pretty soon.
I thoroughly enjoyed this eppy. Backstories are always great to see how a character became the person they are today. Writers did a great job fleshing out her character and giving her traits for Reese to admire. Love seeing Reese on the bike & kicked ass the way he does. Next week looks like we'll get some more about Reese's backstory and I can't wait! Love this show & the perfect pairing of Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson! They are the Dynamic Duo and Carter & Fusco round it out nicely!
Wait, why are y'all acting like Fusco did that much good. Are you forgetting he suggested that resse should leave carter and that it might be more beneficial in the long-run? Didn't really see anything from him which showed genuine care as opposed to coerced care.
You know what I've noticed about a lot of reviewers out there....they all seem to want to have every answer, answered in the first 5 episodes. Why do we have to get ALL of someone's back story in the first couple of episodes.
I think our instant gratification needs are getting out of control.
There has to be balance between good and bad...in Person of Interest we have the dirty cop at the fulcrum. The story is always the same like in most shows... Good prevails over evil. But here we have this corrupt cop walking on the fence using his knowledge to stay alive and out of prison which are one in the same. I believe that out of all the characters on this show the dirty detective has the most potential to evolve because we can’t wait to see what side of the fence he falls on.
I hope this show will not change format and become a "Protect the Saint Carter" show. It was all so poorly done. I have no feelings for the character other than annoyance. She is to the point of being ridiculous - she goes to dangerous places ALONE! Repeatedly. And the entire SWAT team entering the front of the building with not one covering the back! Why? So that the wonderful Carter can go to the back of the building (again, by herself)and save the day! This was so lame the writers should be ashamed. Maybe some people are interested in Carter's personal life but why? Who cares? This show is not a soap opera, so why push to learn about the home-life of a character who is not believable or likeable.
If there are more episodes about taking care of Carter, that will be the end of my watching.
I really did enjoy this episode, and seeing Fusco willingly working for the good guys is a nice change. He showed genuine care for Carter when he learned she may be in trouble. Maybe his dirty cop days are behind him. Am I the only one who wondering if he isn't going to catch some blowback from his dirty cop friends after Reese had that confrontation at the end? The Captain has know who blew the whistle.
I think you are taking a couple of unestablished leaps. First, nothing indicated to me her life was "hard." She has a law degree, is doing well as a cop, and even has family (other than her son) nearby. Also, no one said her husband was abusive, all we saw was his photo in uniform. Her attachment to the abusive wife could just be a female cop thing. Nothing in this episode said she had been abused. In fact, I would find that hard to believe after seeing this episode. Also, being a single parent is almost a norm these days. Is it hard? Yes, but it is hard being a
My only hope was this was the episode to get rid of Carter. The writers tried extremely hard to make her more sympathic by giving her a child, a hard life, an abusive husband, too big a heart; what no terminal disease? Sorry, for eight episodes she annoyed me and all that back story doesn't change a thing. I still love this show and can't get enough of Reese/Finch dynamics. LOVE LOVE LOVE this show even if I have to FF through the Carter bits.
I LOVED this episode! I'd been feeling annoyed about the Carter character but this episode changed that. When it was over, all I could do was stare at the screen repeating "wow" over and over.
This is the best new show on TV, and having Burn Notice on at 10:00 makes Thursday night fabulous!
And as a very mature woman *grin*, I'm enjoying the heck outta JC: he's one hot dude *grin* especially in motorcycle leathers!
