Person of Interest Review: Taxi Driver

by at . Comments

Who knew that taking a simple cab drive could be so dangerous?

Person of Interest focused the case of the week on a taxi driver trying to bring his family into the United States, and the unfortunate laptop trouble he gets mixed up in.

Except the episode, "C.O.D." left me rather underwhelmed.

Finch In The Middle

It's not that the hour was bad, because it wasn't, but I kept waiting for something bigger to happen or an emotional chord to be struck.

Sure, Reese had his fight scenes per usual and Finch did manage to get out of his office to do some work, but overall it felt like it was missing that extra kick the show normally doles out.

I am curious as to how the HR storyline will progress and if Simmons and his boss can rebuild their corrupt company.

Certainly, having Fusco caught in those dangerous waters was probably the more entertaining aspects of the night. He still desperately wants out, but he's not a clean cop, so the situation becomes more difficult.

And I'm glad he at least tried calling Reese even if he was never able to tell him the truth. There's such a struggle taking place for his character and you can't help but want to root for him.

Which made him telling Simmons he was done even greater, despite the fact that his past is definitely going to have bad consequences for him.

Can Fusco ever really escape HR?

Certainly Elias wants nothing to do with HR, and though we didn't get to see him, I enjoy that his presence is still a heavy one on this show.

It's cool that Reese and Finch's adversaries can always come back to face them again.

But ultimately, it was the taxi driver and the murderous Estonians that left much to be desired.

In fact, the Estonians, even though they were a threat, didn't really have a personality that jumped off the screen. They just weren't memorable.

As was the person of interest himself. Sure, he wanted to save his family, but it just didn't give me the emotional resonance I think the episode wanted. Maybe if he had a speech where he stared into a mirror shouting, "You talking to me!?"

That said, Bear did get a chance to use his attack skills again, even if his final moments were playing catch with Reese. Which if you think about it, should Reese and Carter have been in the outfield of the baseball game? I guess they probably didn't think anyone could hit it that far.

Person of Interest has been on fire with its episodes, so it was bound to happen that one might end up being less than stellar. That said, even if this was my least favorite of the season so far, it still managed to give us those good moments like Reese riding a motorcycle and Finch walking into the bar with Bear like a boss.

After all, who doesn't love Reese and Finch kicking ass and saving the day?

What did you think of the episode? Can Fusco escape HR? Sound off below!

I watch Person of Interest as the best series on TV. The characters are interesting,and their developing in each episode. Give the writers a break it's only them building up each character's personality. I haven't seen an episode I didn't like and what's up with "Elementary" being rated higher in ratings. I think that "Person Of Interest" is as great as "24". I hope that this year it takes #1 Drama. Congratulations to all the actors !!!!

A bad cop is still a cop u don't kill cops! Agent Snow said in Blue Code. How upset was Carter about Szymanski being shot and the safe house compromise by Reese.

This episode is so deceptive, its scary but in a good way! I don't watch POI 4 the POI of the week, I watch to see how our 4some deals with the situation, if there are any new tells/traits we might find out about them and how they deal with each other. And also how this episode fits with the others. Remember what Finch told Nathan about the Machine; it's about connecting the dots. Thats a recurring theme thats stirring u in the face. I now know that Carter can bring a happy outcome 2 a bad situation on her own. Simmons informing Carter about Davidson's body is a Pandora's box not for just 4 Fusco but Reese & Finch to if/when Carter finds out about their involvement. What does Reese do when a body drops he gives Carter the heads-up. She wants the justice system take care of things

While not one of the better P.O.I. shows, it did have some great moments. I did like the focus on Fusco also. Overall the show was still a rating of 4 for me.

I don't the episode was bad. It just wasn't eventful. The case of the week was dull but the focus on HR and Fusco was solid. That may have actually been the intention. I love all the humor in this show. As much as I love the witty banter between Carter and Reese it was really fun with Finch and Carter. They don't typically "interact "as much so it was fun. Almost like solidifying how close all of them have reluctantly become before all hell breaks loose.

I didn't think it was that bad an episode - not as clever as some, but I expect even POI has the occasional slow week. What I particularly liked about the episode was the freshly confident and out-and-about Finch, especially in the pool hall scene where he was surprisingly badass ("I'm new at this", he says flintily). LIKE A BOSS. Though for one horrible moment I thought I was going to have to stop watching the show if they shot Bear. I was also intrigued by Fermin's reading of Finch in the cab. I too think he has nice suits. I bet he smells nice, too. Oh dear, there I go again. I do love Fusco as a character, too. I was especially touched that he has his kid's face as wallpaper on his phone, which made the incoming messages that much more sinister. I hope he gets out of this alive. So, am I then the only one who simply assumed HR stood for Human Resources? I mean, I work for a large city system, and I can assure you some pretty weird shiz goes down in our HR department ...

I too agree that while this was a good episode it was not my favorite. We still had all the regular POI elements but I too felt that there was a tiny bit lacking.
That being said I did like Finch and Bear going into the bar and the recation on D3MN5's face when Finch told him he knew his name, where he lived etc.
I also liked the ending with Reese and Carter in the park.
The HR storyline is heating up, I feel bad for Fusco, and as much as Resse gives Fusco a hard time you can tell he is concerned about him enough to talk to Carter and make sure she keeps an eye on him. I think that Fusco will confide in Cater and together they will take down HR.
