Person of Interest - Lethe - Finch going out into the field

Person Of Interest S3Ep11 Lethe Review!

During the preview of this weeks episode of PoI ‘Lethe’ I speculated that it would be a jumping board for the second half of the season. Oooh boy was I right. Sadly the episode ends on a major cliffhanger that won’t be answered until January 7th. ‘Lethe’ takes a while to get going, using old enemies such as ‘vigilance’ as a red-herring and not resolving the plot of Reese being AWOL. However, when the episode does get going it goes of like a rocket. It’s last moments unveils such a conundrum for Finch and Shaw that you would almost suspect one of...

Person of Interest - Lethe - Mr. Finch and Mr. Claypool

Person of Interest S3Ep11 ‘Lethe’ Preview!

Reshuffle After a three week hiatus Person Of Interest will be back for one more episode on December 17th before another Christmas hiatus that will last until January 7th. The upcoming episode is entitled ‘Lethe’ and is the first after the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy that shook up the status quo. ‘Lethe’ will in particular deal with Finch’s youth and hopefully explain the events that led up to him building The Machine. We know from hints in the dialogue between Nathan Ingram and Finch that he is/was wanted for subversion. I get a sense that with explaining this background of events the show...

Person of Interest - The Devil's Share - Don't fuck with Root (Amy Acker)

Person of Interest S3Ep10 ‘The Devil’s Share’ Review!

The trilogy that is supposed to reboot Person of Interest is over. With the latest episode ‘The Devil’s Share’ the series has been shaken to its core an hopefully found a new equilibrium. Since the middle of season 2 PoI has had its dull moments in which the show seemed to rehash old storylines and dealt with antagonists in a visceral way. With this reboot trilogy old enemies are finally taken care off once and for all and though some rules are broken others are shown to be watertight. This last episode is all about revenge, it is a motif...

Person of Interest - Quinn warns Carter that this is his city

Person of Interest S3Ep9 ‘The Crossing’ Review!

This week’s episode of Person of Interest continues immediately were ‘Endgame’ from the last week stopped. ‘The Crossing’ is the second episode in a trilogy that is intended to act as a reboot for the series. Person of Interest developed some problems during its second season when characters left the show in rapid succession requiring quick alteration to the storyline. Combined with the ending of the powerful character arcs for Mr. Reese (Jim Caviezel), Finch and Fusco the show has run on fumes. Season 3 saw the introduction of Sarah Shahi as Shaw to act as a counter balance to Mr....

Detective Carter (Taraji P. Henson) following Price - Person of Interest

Person of Interest S3Ep7 ‘The Perfect Mark’ Review!

Once in a while Person of Interest manages to shine with a non-mythology episodes. It doesn’t happened often but it does happen. What also sets this episode apart is the resolution of the Carter/Laskey plot. The resolution comes in a cold and swift fashion that is familiar to PoI. Though it may have come too soon. The Perfect Mark In this weeks episode a con man name Hayden Price is the Person of Interest. Despite resorting to some very dirty tricks Finch (Michael Emerson) believes him to be the intended victim. Finch infiltrates his practice when Mr. Price uses hypnotherapy to illicit confidential information from clients. One client...

Person of Interest ‘God mode’ Preview!

Person of Interest ‘God mode’ Preview!

I am glad to see that the Person of Interest finale scheduled for Thursday evening is so hotly anticipated by viewers online. As I mentioned in last weeks review of Zero Day PoI had some problems during the middle of its second season with character being killed off just because the actors playing them had scheduling conflicts. At this moment PoI is in as special sweet spot when it comes to plot development. So much so that a part of me is sad to see it unravel in the upcoming episode and season 3. Before all that happens there is...

Person of Interest ‘Zero Day’ Review!

Person of Interest ‘Zero Day’ Review!

This is the review of Zero Day, the first to last episode of Person of Interests second season. While this season has been notably bumpier than the first I am happy to say that the show has been able to get itself back on track. At this moment the sow seems to suffer more from having to many factions and characters than too few. As such this episode excludes some of those for brevity’s sake. Then again, we don’t want every storyline to be resolved now do we? The plot of Zero Day… The episode starts with Finch (Michael Emerson) and Reese (Jim...
