It wasn't poor but there were a couple plot holes. I'd have thought the producer/director/editor would get better at spotting them.
Agree, there were lots of points that defy reality in this episode...but it's so much fun to watch you don't mind while it's happening.
No, they never would have walked him along NYC sidewalks in the daytime wearing a hood.
No, the guy wouldn't have survived the rifle shot.
And so on....
BTW - it's the second series to use the trade secret that all police/miltary trained dogs don't take english commands. All are raised & trained in europe with either german or dutch commands. Criminals generally then are not able to call them off.
The episode was great.The Snow-Lady spy thing is about to explode into something big.
The main storyline had everything going for it except the lesbian couple chemistry.Both looked uncomfortable,awkward and their interaction was completely forced.One side question:is it required that one half of lesbian couple should always have that short haired-psuedo cowboy looks?Its so cliched.
On another note, looks like Leon will come back into the show along with zoey and we will have all of them helping out reese-finch when hell breaks loose.
Thinking a lesbian storyline is inappropriate is not "homophobia." The promotion of the homosexual agenda is tiresome. Take the show "Touch" for example...they had 2 very beautiful Asian lesbians...this somehow doesn't ring true. I've worked with several lesbains, and they are fine workers and fine people, but have rarely seen a lesbian look like these two. Anyhoo...like I said at least 50%, possibly more, of this country is not comfortable with the whole gay marriage, gay agenda thing. Another annoying point in this episode is where Reese shoots the sniper, point blank with a high powered sniper rifle...there is no body armor in the world that would stop that round at that range...the sniper would be dead with a big hole in his chest even if he was wearing steel plates.
Reviewer, I am sure you didn't mean to say "extract" revenge, when the proper phrase is to "exact" revenge, still, I thought your review covered most of the bases, but failed to note how well the show dealt with the lesbian couple at it's center. I find the homophobic comments ridiculous, as saying that they were "Hollywood" lesbians or somehow too good looking to be gay, or that they chose women because male gays offend audiences more that females do (which is wrong, look at the show "Scandal" with Cyrus and his journalist husband who are openly gay)doesn't make sense. Gays and lesbians come in all shapes and sizes and levels of "beauty" just like everyone else. Of course a TV show is going to have better looking people than reality because it is TV...everyone is good looking, for the most part. I doubt there was any agenda beyond trying to make good drama with attractive people, like most TV shows. This was a great episode, and I enjoyed it, especially Finch and his near-faint in the
To clarify I am heterosexual but I have no problem with gay people.
This was a great episode. It had all the elements that makes this show great. To all the people complaining about the gay storyline, it is sad that this day in age people are still so narrow minded.
did anyone else notice that reese & finch took leon outside with the bag on his head in broad daylight? I mean the director really should have caught that
Great episode - loved the return of Leon - funny, annoying character. I don't believe he asked did any of the money show up from "the dog" - gross!
I found the main storyline enjoyable, although I don't think POI needed to add the lesbian twist. Westley is a great nemesis for Reese.
Love the doggie and it is so cool when he responds to Dutch - very cool.
Very interested to see where the lady is going with the man trapped to the bomb - ....
It would be virtually impossible for every episode of every series to be a perfect 10. Though P.O.I. comes as close as it gets week after week. While not the best in the series, it's still better not at it's best to better anything else on television. And I mean anything.
It's the mind set on both coasts that everyone is cool with the whole gay marriage thing....well at least 50% of the people aren't. So the whole lesbian couple thing seemed forced and unnecesary. Could have done the show with any number of other relationships, but the producers though..lets go with cute little lesbians....no mannish crew cut lesbians...but cute girly lesbians. Apparently they don't live where I live because I haven't seen em. Why do the shows producers feel to need to push along the homosexual agenda? The whole concept was a bit off.
Nothing like calling distaste of gays being tired of 'Hollywood lesbians'. Yes, it was the 'safe' route to use lesbians rather than gay men for the episode. Guess what men and women still react better to beautiful women than to a handsome man, its an age old bias. Nothing in the episode was exploitative, which is all that really matters. It was another great episode. I really loved the final scene. It really brings home the feeling of loss that Finch & Reese feel even today about the choices they've taken even when they've been for the right reasons.
An average episode, however I'm disappointed that they went the "Hollywood lesbian" route...as all Hollywood lesbians are cute slim attractive feminine women, and well..lets say reality is thats not usually the case. Touch did the same thing with 2 hot Asian lesbians. It's just tiresome that a good show feels it somehow has to push forward with an agenda that is just getting tiresome. If you're gonna do it at least be real with it.
Another excellent episode. PoI is the best thing on TV at the moment. I do hope they don't ruin it by throwing in a romance between any of the regular characters. As long as they keep the main focus fixed on Reese and Finch (and Bear!), and on the PoI they are protecting, then the stories work brilliantly.
"Reese never fails to disappoint in his abilities..."
Surely not quite what you meant? :P
Loved the episode - but when it comes to this show, that's nothing to write home about. PoI may have actually become my new network favourite. Certainly the best thing to come along in the last couple of years.
An average episode I would say. They are definitely at their strongest when the procedural stories are mixed in with serial elements. this week the most interesting part was the Carter angle. But because it was completely separate from the person of the week story I found the latter rather bland... I'm looking forward to the next few eps before Xmas break as there should be some big reveals about the machine.

Absolutely loved this episode! And it seems to be getting better and better as Finch and Reese bring more people (and Bear) into the fold: more characters to play off each other. Truthfully, I can't figure out why more TV sites don't give this marvelous show the front billing it deserves.
The best line of the night definitely goes to Finch: "It's squishy!" I know I wouldn't have reacted any better to the situation, and I'm absolutely sure I would have at least lost my lunch!
I was suspicious of the cop Fusco accosted to create a distraction because he showed extraordinarily little (read: no) respect for the detective. If I had been Fusco, I'd have busted his chops for that behavior! Of course, he turned out to be an imposter, so he got a bit more than his chops busted...
Sorry, but this episode was the worst PofI ever aired and I've watched this terrific show from the beginning. Every subplot was terrible. The lesbian surgeon who will murder a patient based on an English guy showing her some cam feeds. Yeah, right, very plausible. The murder plot itself was the most absurd way to cash in on a short position that I've ever run across. Getting a legit surgeon to purposely botch an operation? I've heard more sensible stories from giggling pot-heads. The chinese guy reappearing--most annoying character ever. Guy doing stuff he doesn't want to do because he has a bomb strapped to him: What was that? The actors floundered about with all of these bad lines and ridiculous joke of a plot. Terrible job by the writers and producers.
I found this show just as captivating as all the rest. Everyone on board are working at the top of the game . The game being one great show.Leon is just one ot those chacters you just like no matter what he has done. Finch actually going hands on. Which shows there's more to come with this chacter. Wesley will quite obvisiously be back to give Reese more trouble. As for Snow and Carter;s meet . Snows warning "SHE" leaves the question . Is it Reese'S Ex-parther or is Root. Time will tell , no matter it will be very good as always.Just keep it comming.
I love this show. Finch's squishy remark was priceless, as well as Leon looking at Finch, John, with h Bear between them. It was good to see Bear is still one dangerous pup when he hears Dutch! More serious tonight which is good. Humor should flow from the natural situation as part of life. Tonight's show was as excellent as ever with bathroom breaks and snacks timed to the commercials..
Another enjoyable episode indeed, and many thanks for the Great recap Sean, you summed it up so well as usual, everything was beyond words from amazing script to wonderful directing and of course fantastic Cast.
Ah, Wesley. He managed to lose his entire team and millions of dollars in potential earnings in a single mission, then skipped the country in disgrace. That's the problem with a lot of villains - they simply do NOT know when to cut their losses. Did Wesley think he was going to scare him off with a few vaguely sinister threats delivered in a British accent? He didn't even seem to wonder too much about how Reese found out about his little operation. Speaking of that operation, it all seemed more than a little overkill (pun intended) and unbelievably convoluted. The more complicated the plan, the greater the probability that something goes wrong. As it plainly did.
