Person of Interest > Person of Interest Review: Closer to Corruption > Comments Page 2
This show continues to raise the bar in quality writing AND acting. Kevin Chapman has really turned a regular but smallish part into a a character with nuance and (who'da thunk it?) soul. I am also really enjoying how both Finch and Reese are not lily-pure "white hats." They are more human, more complex, and realistically bearing guilt for past and present actions. We the viewers do, of course, root for them to win, but the cost they demand of themselves and others makes us ponder some deeper questions.
Is good still good if it breaks a few rules in order to defeat evil?
Are some rules more (or less) okay to break than others?
Does good become no different than the evil it's fighting if it adopts the same tactics that evil uses?
Does the importance of the end goal justify using people to reach it?
I look forward to this thought-provoking show every week!!
One of the best shows to come along in a while....I hate to miss it...
great writing and suspense...always entertaining....keep up the great work.
Lovely that we are now feeling sorry for the 'can't catch a break Fusco' and we just go along! I have loved Ms. Henson for awhile, 'The Family That Preys' is a favorite performance!! A perfectly cast series with great writing, who knew it was still possible!! Long may it continue!!
What a fantastic episode. We got a Reese flashback with his female partner at the agency and his ex-wife, we had poor Fusco admitting that he like being a good cop, we had the return of Agent Snow (CIA), and an overall fantastic story. Every week I watch, I'm impressed how this show just continues to build and get stronger.
OH.... I forgot. How great was the scene between Carter and Fusco at internal affairs. The way they both loot at each other wondering what the other was doing there.
Poor Fusco his life is not his own....and now he's really forced to enter the dark side.
Fusco made mistakes, we all do that is being human. He cleans up his act, tries to amend his past and starts to tread the right path. It nearly gets him killed this time serving good and his thank you is being tossed back into the filth. You have to do your penance for your mistakes, pay the cost but Fusco still has to pay for his past. What will be enough for him to come into the light?
Very well said!
Hey, hard to believe that reviewer and I are getting closer to agreement on one. lol I just want them to drop the Elias thing. This is just something for the writers to go back to when they can't think of a new story line. And can do without the flash backs. Other than that, the action, acting, and crime of the week are perfect. Please don't change.
This is such a great show!
I enjoy it every week
Poor Reese how can he survive the beatings he gets? He must have 100 lives, and I think he used his 99th...LOL
So Reese was CIA, I can not recall if we knew that or not? If we knew that then I just forgot
I feel bad for Fusco, you can tell he is a nice guy and got caught up in the wrong things before but really wanted to be a better cop and now he has to become even more dirty as that is the help that Reese needs from him
I am looking forward to next week as I think we get a new episode
I like dhis
Superb episode all around! No need to wonder if the CIA drug king pin is linked to Elias because the deliciously nasty agent Snow had him bumped off immediately after he was sprung from jail. The existential tragedy of Fusco and the tightening circle of danger around Carter raised the stakes on this drama 100 fold. Finch was pulling the strings from afar while Reese and Carter continue to forge a compellingly quirky partnership. I like the way their divergent senses or morality play off of one another. Caviezel and Henson have great chemistry together. And how terrific was Kevin Chapman in bringing both the comedy and the pathos. The flashbacks were essential to understanding how Reese arrived at this tormented juncture and why he wants to try to put his life back together now.
excellent episode. Every Thursday, I anxiously await a new episode of this show(kudos that I watch in real time) and am rarely disappointed. From day one, I have always liked Fusco and his rubic cube life. With little dialogue, Fusco show his sadness at having to return to the dark side. Kudos to Kevin Chapman. Finch and Reese are so entertaining and we got more of Reeses backstory. Little or no Carter is best.
Cracking instalment! Just realized that the conclusion with Fusco's plotline is a somewhat twisted opposite of the climax of "The Dark Knight" with Batman taking the fall for Harvey's crimes. Kudos to Kevin Chapman for playing it so well!
