@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.
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!
I do like Felicity-Oliver interaction.....
Bravo, totally amazing!
@braaf_hond, I hope Root can team up just from time to time if Decima strike back,;even Root and Shaw working together(Interestingly, their first name is the same: Sam, so, team Sam!) Two dominatrix work together, their conversation is going to be freaking awesome!
@BobR,I know Root was yellow framed in her first appearance in season 1 finale "Firewall", but note this the first 2 episodes of season 2,either "The Contingency" or "Bad Code",she was red-framed, maybe partly because her violence conduct,but the red frame is not the same as normal criminals, you can see for yourself. As to the rest, totally agree, Root is far better than those government people so she has earned her right to get in contact with machine. (Admin? I am not sure about that word, I think the machine controls itself from now on, not sure AI still need a admin, Root is just one of the people it decides to talk to)
I always think nobody can portray Hannibal Lecter anywhere as brilliant as Anthony Hopkins,yet so glad I am only partly right.I also use to mention to one of my friends, a die-hard fan for Hannibal series, that between the movie"Hannibal Rising" and "Red Dragon",we have black hole-sized mystery as to"what make Hannibal Hannibal",so really hope there will be a movie. Sincerely I respect Thomas's creation/imagination and his highly matured version of Dr.Lecter, yet my original remark is "Maybe Thomas Harris himself don't know the process or recipe for its growth" .....I am thrilled to see some writers are trying out there, even though it's not the most difficult part,I still think I won't speak for myself in saying how grateful our fans are to see a TV show about Lecter at such level of quality!
@SavhCaro, how fun is that, Richard Lewis has a mental breakdown directing the show? lol
