Person of Interest > Person of Interest Review: Trading Places > Comments Page 2
Anyone noticed at the very end of the episode, the machine produced a threat accessment on Nathan? Now it's got me wondering if Nathan did anything to try to get the machine under his thumb...???
Loved having it back. I like that they picked off where it left off. I love the continuing bromance between Finch and Reese even though they obviously still have some trust issues between the two of them. I loved how finch threw Carter into the deep end. I like Carter. I like her even better since her episode. She has the tough spot of them all because she's completely in the dark but trying to make sense of what's going on.I think that's why I wasn't mad at her when she betrayed Reese,based on the little she knew why wouldn't she have?But her actions afterwards and her loyalty to them afterwards speaks volumes. I love the insight and connection that Reese has with Carter.Even Finch doesn't understand it,but it's awesome.I can't wait to see those two interact next week.She's in just as deep as they are now w/o even really knowing it, and so is fusco.A nice little crimefighting bunch.
So wonderful to have a new Person of Interest back on my TV! Great job bringing Carter into the 'deep end of the pool'. Fast paced & flashback galore keeping us on our toes & hanging on to ever whispered comment. Many hints dropped again about Finch's backstory & the Machine (think we need to start using a capital M now....since it seems to be developing it's own personality......or Finch's personality is showing through.........hmmmmm, food for thought). Anywho.....this show just gets better & better with every episode. Love the humor shining through....be it a deadpan delivery or a look or single raised eyebrow......
So glad the show is back. The twist in the show was perfect [Reese and Finch trade roles]. Again great writing for what is by far the best drama on television. I know I speak for many of you as it always makes me want more...
I didn't like this show when it first started. Glad I gave it another try. I really like it now !!!!
Also love this show...wonder what happened to Finch's original partner (the machine front man) I'm beginning to get a very bad feeling....
This is beginning to get a Fugitive feel....the CIA men chasing Reese..
I also wonder how much is the machine and how much is Finch ? He is so much more than her appears ..
Who knew....a pay cable guy like me, AMC, PBS ....that a lame, for halfwits Network would / could create a show that breaks into the "quality" drama Top10. ....no this is not the for halfwits only "Ratings" top 10.
Dexter 2011, you're fired , and off the list this season. Welcome POI.. The 4th new show to make the drama list:
Ah - so glad it's back and it won a People's Choice for favorite new drama! This has quickly become one of my favorite hours of TV! LOL the yoga girl tilting was indeed great! And so was the donut :-)!
This show reminds me as a cross between some old shows like Institute for Revenge, Search, and the Equalizer. I guess I should clarify. It resembles the Institute for Revenge because it was about a computer, the IFR 7000 (John Hillerman) that would Identify bad guys that the good guy team would go after. Search (aka Probe or Search Control in UK) about agents with video/telemetry capabilities (Hugh O'Brian/Doug McClure) directed by master control supervisor (Burgess Meredith) with access to vast databases. The Equalizer, Edward Woodward, ex-CIA agent, helping the downtrodden, without remuneration and with the help of shady characters.
I've ever seen in a show*
I accidentally posted before I was done . I was gonna say that I love this show and watching our makes new realize how done of the other shows I watch are.
Oh yeah, another show with great character is american horror story.
Bruce, I think you should check out walking dead, leverage, how I met your mother, and fringe. Fringe is actually made by bad robot too. That's the production company. Also even though our was canceled years ago, firefly had the best character development I've even arm in a show.
I love this show.
Like Loren, I am so glad the show is back! It really makes my week! I get the Lost connection now; it's in the surprisingly #D development of supporting characters who then can become strong enuf to have stories of their own. Compare with the new Hawaii 5-0 or CSI-LA where even the main characters never develop fully.
Are there any other current shows written with this attention to character creation? Locally in Los Angeles, Doc Martin shows weekly. This is 99% character creation and about 1% plot. Person of Interest, and Lost before it, was that unusual, eleusive balance of roughly 50% plot development balanced by roughly 50% character development. That's how I see it tonite anyway.
First off, so so so SO happy that the boys (and girl) are back! Being stuck with the image of a bloody Reese over the holidays was terrible, especially with the reruns. Bleh.
Really happy with the quick recap, helped everybody get up to speed. I was really wondering how Reese was going to end up okay and ready to head tilt at the yoga girl. (That part was great and it put both Finch and Reese a softer light.)
It's high time that Carter comes in with the whole thing and she's pretty savvy to be able to avoid the best spies in the world.
The only thing that's kind of bothering me about her though is that she's stabbed Reese in the back already, what's to stop her from doing it again? From the preview of next week, I'm fearing a split up.
Anyway, welcome back POI! Keep it coming!
