Person of Interest > Person of Interest Review: Risky Business > Comments Page 2
The main storyline was not nearly as interesting as finding out Reese’s soft spot for vets; Finch taking a ride on a motorcycle and lovin it; (lol) and finding out that Beecher is godson to the HR Boss.
The kid’s plan in the main storyline, while noble was not well thought out at all. I didn’t find either character to be endearing or noteworthy.
The finality left a lot of unanswered questions indeed – will HR rebuild itself or will the identity of the HR boss be discovered in the near future? Who is Beecher exactly and does he have a motive for his interest in Carter? Who will win the battle between Simmons and Finch and will Finch ever be able to leave HR?
I can’t wait for the return of POI - great show!!
"Person of Interest" just gets better and better. Love the Cast and the interesting storylines of this great show. The writers have done a brilliant job in developing the characters. This is one of the networks finest shows and hope it lasts a long time.
In the beginning of the season Reese looks so lost without Finch, and now at the end of this episode Finch looks lost without Reese. I like the contrast, love the cliffhanger and cannot wait until January 3rd.
I'm very excited. My DVD set of the first season of PoI arrived today. I missed some episodes last year, and this is one of those shows you cannot get online without paying for it. I think one could consider the weekend coming up to be another Lost Weekend, and I don't even drink!
I, too, have been wracking my brains trying to figure out how he is going to get out of the predicament in which he was left. January cannot come too soon!
I am SO glad everyone likes this show and that all are anxious to watch when it returns. There are so many bad shows on television that I began thinking the TV audience is just not sophisticated enough to care about fictional characters, etc. Then along comes a true masterpiece like Person of Interest- it is all simply wonderful (and fun!) To watch. My favorite show as well. Hope everyone has a nice Holiday.
@Tom - Did the NYPD ever get fingerprints for "The Man in the Suit"? In the pilot, when they took Reese's prints he was just a bum. It was never 100% clear that the bum was ever associated with The Man in the Suit.
And I can't imagine the other guys the FBI arrested with Reese have squeaky clean records, themselves. So I'm not really sure that running their prints will give Donnelly a huge degree of certainty about which is the right guy - especially if Finch, Carter, and Fusco start obfuscating things.
They just need to check the fingerprints, they have Johns on file. I'm thinking that Finch will hack in and change them, maybe he will be forced to get Root to help.
This episode was a 5+. Never knowing what's actually coming next in addition to the great story lines and characters makes it one of the best dramas I've ever seen. Can't wait for it's return and will be ready, however it's done to see Reese escape just one more time. Happy Holiday's all.

Wow, what an awesome winter finale that was! I also loved the look on Reeses face when Finch declared his love of riding on a motorcycle...hilarious!
I can't wait to see how Reese extricates himself from the FBI. That should be an interesting episode right there.
And I hope Fusco can bring down HR and get out of the organization himself.
@Mia - Or Reese could play Stills, undercover NYPD detective... There are numerous routes the writers could take to extricate Reese from his current predicament. I'm really looking forward to seeing which one they take!
Could Reese use the Marshall Jennings ID again to get out of the FBI's clutches? Claim to have been investigating the explosion he heard while walking in the area?
Fantastic show. Not just the action, but the suspense, humor, and subplots.
They really know how to put a cliffhanger together, which is 3 times now - when Carter finally found out who he was and whether to help him (MS finale last yr), how Reese was going to find Finch (finale) and now this..
It's funny to think about how, a year ago, we were wondering whether this show was going to get the shaft, let alone a 2nd season. Full steam ahead, now, one of, if not the best show on television!
See you in January, boys!
Totally agree with Extra, this show is awesome and thanks for the great recap Sean.
I loved the look on Reese's face when Finch remarks that riding on a motorcycle was exhilarating and he'd think about getting one. Sort of faintly shocked and horrified. Better watch out, Reese, 'cause Finch is edging in on your turf!
And Fusco is showing even more spine than ever before! I'm telling you, I like Fusco more and more with each passing episode. He's now got a line on the head of HR, even though he doesn't know it yet!
This is my favourite current show. Maybe Reese will use one of his badges to get out of his predicament.
So sad I have to wait until January 3rd to see a new episode, but POI is still one of the best things on TV, its amazing how it keeps getting better each episode, I guess when you have a Nolan attached to it, its imposible to be anything below awesome...
when does the show return?
