@Priest:As to Hannibal,I am a huge fan of Thomas Harris seris, I have to say Hannibal on NBC is quite solid(by the way,why not renewed yet?),but I have to say, after 9 episodes, I am already a little tired to see Will's unique method on investigation already, same very time, kinda of cliche, the storyline of the show is also developed kinda slow to me.But as to Hannibal, "we mustn't judge so harshly", right? Since the beginning of Pilot episode, I already give up Elementary for it.
@Priest: I am really not sure about the comparison with Hannibal or Game of Thrones. First, I agree with Marty McFly, from what I see, Game of Thrones is really no better than POI, if equally good. HBO is good at certain type of Shows, like "Rome",but that type can't offer the diversity of elements as POI: drama,Sci-Fi,Action,comedy,mystery
@EmptyArcade: I think that"weirdest thing"you mentioned is just the definition of "God Mode". Now the machine is not just a "machine" anymore, it's an AI or as Root put it right from the start"a Life". Then three calls were made: Irrelevant numbers to Reese&Finch, Relevant numbers to Hersh from ISA, a cliffhanger call to Root, maybe just for fun, but to me,Root is never as bad as government, she is just a Fan of machine & Finch, I don't think she ever harm the machine.
@Priest: I watch both show's and am a huge Game of Thrones fan, gotta say P.O.I is right there if not better. It's the best show on network television that's for sure.
Favorite Episodes: Zero Day and God Mode were both excellent, but Prisoner's Dilemma was my favourite episode. The interrogation scene's between Reese and Carter and the fakery of John Warren by Finch was fantastic. Reese walking out of prison to the who's "eminence front" was awesome. The cliffhanger at the end with Donnelly was phenomenal. Awesome episode. There really wasn't bad episode this season, although I really wasn't a fan of "proteus" (serial killer episode).
Favourite Scene: Finch as a teacher explaining 'Pi' to his class is Dialogue at it's best in that scene.
Favourite Quote: "Ohhh... That kinda prisoner's transfer" Elias (God Mode)
It`s a good series with a good cast and range of charactersbut not as good as Hannibal or Game of Thrones.
I`ll go with the Root as best recurring character. The worst character was the detective who had a thing with Carter but HR did the decent thing and killed off him off.
I agree with Mr. Finch and Tom. But, considering that Carter changed so much this season, and at the same time, she was totally credible. Care would get my "best character" award. Shaw switched sides too fast and Reese is still Reese...but maybe better. I loved the Stanton character in S1, but she was definitely the worst in S2.
The weirdest thing was the speech at the end of God Mode. It was like "the machine hasn't called...meh. I guess we'll just go about our lives and if it calls, great. Oh yeah, sorry John for getting you in this mess." Then, the writers turned around and dropped tons of drama in Root's lap. It was just weird...one of those, "we don't know if we're coming back" endings.
I also have to give Amy Acker the title of "Best recurring character",Sarah Shahi is just perfect at being a bad-ass operative, but Amy Acker's Root has some magic power on the screen......Besides, Boris McGiver is really a chilling to the bone assassin, and just like Shaw and Root, Hersh also has a special OST music when he appears, amazing to watch!
Best overall drama on TV at the moment
