Person of Interest S4Ep5 Prophets Review

For a few weeks now viewers have been able to enjoy the new format of Person Of Interest. With Finch, Reese, Shaw and Root hiding from Samaritan the series has become more dynamic. It reminds me a lot of the first season when Reese was not yet the Superman caricature he became during season 2. This episode entitled ‘Prophets’ sticks to the new format while also forcing Reese to deal with his alternate persona when he is forced to undergo psychiatric...

Samaritan hunting Reese - Person Of Interest S4Ep2 Nautilus Review

Person Of Interest S2Ep2 Nautilus Review

After last weeks episode of Person of Interest I felt re-invigorated to continue watching this show. Jonathan Nolan’s has managed to pull off an impressive reboot since the death of Detective Carter. This week’s episode entitled ‘Nautilus’ has come as the icing on the cake by giving the prime antagonist, the AI called Samaritan, real character as well progress the mythology through the clever writing that has an ideal amount of humor. I hope you enjoy Person Of Interest S2Ep2 Nautilus Review Nautilus Finch...

Person Of Interest Season 4 Episode 1 Panopticon Review - Amy Acker as Root

Person Of Interest Season 4 Episode 1 Panopticon Review

Person Of Interest is finally back for its fourth season. I haven’t looked forward to PoI’s since the end of season 1, but the changes made during its third season finally seem to pay off. The Tuesday slot that PoI is rather crowded but it is still my number one TV show. Person Of Interest Season 4 Episode 1 Panopticon Review The changed circumstances for each of the characters has been quite profound. At first it seems that Harold (Michael...

Person of Interest Season 4 Preview

The fall is almost upon us and you know what that means. TV shows, lots of TV-shows. Some of the new ones such as Gotham, Constantine, NCIS New Orléans and many more. While others will start their make or break second season (Agents of SHIELD and The Blacklist). Frankly there is simply too much to review for one author of a small sci-fi blog. Anyway, the show I am most looking forward is to Person of Interest (PoI). PoI suffered during its second season...

Person Of Interest S3Ep23 Deus Ex Machina Review

Person Of Interest S3Ep23 Deus Ex Machina Review

Season 3 of Person of Interest has ended. It ended with what I consider to be among the best TV episodes ever. Season 3 was certainly peculiar, it wasn’t as erratic as season 2 but it didn’t manage to deliver the procedural aspects as well as season 1 did. Nonetheless season 3 has what I consider to be the top 5 episodes of the show so far. It’s finale stands at number one followed by the three The Dark Knight episodes starting with...

Person of Interest S3Ep3 ‘Lady Killer’ Review

Person of Interest is a great show but once in a while you get a real stinker of an episode. I remember one or two from both earlier seasons but this episode is pretty much the lamest ever. I don’t think the creative staff purposefully set out to make a bad episode (why would they) but they certainly had the idea to bring in a serious element of drama that just falls completely flat. They went wrong when it became...

Person Of Interest S3Ep1 ‘Liberty’ Review!

Person Of Interest is back for its third season. Ever since May the buzz for this show increased when it became clear that both characters Samantha Shaw (Sarah Shahi) and Root (Amy Acker) would return as regulars. This enlargement of cast along with resolution of the ‘find-the-machine’ storyline considerably increases the scope of the series. PoI creative director Jonathan Nolan certainly seems to take effort in keeping this show on track after it almost got derailed during the first half of season...

Person of Interest – Relevance – Review!

Person of Interest – Relevance – Review!

This week’s episode of Person of Interest is special in that it is the directorial début of Jonathan Nolan. Those who watch the episode will agree it is among the best episodes yet. Personally I think it is the best PoI has to offer. If that doesn’t convince you to watch it read the plot overview below and lament what you have missed on-screen. Relevance is the 16th episode of Person of Interest’s second season, so there are only 7 episodes...

Person of Interest – Relevance – Preview!

Person of Interest – Relevance – Preview!

As I have mentioned a few times before in the last couple of week I think Person of Interest is a bit lost (no pun intended). What I means is… the show’s mythology seems to remain even a mystery to its creative staff. After the surprise death of a number of a antagonists (Donnelly, Snow and Stanton) PoI seemed destined for a radical turnaround. And tonight’s episode Relevance seems to promise just that. The episode is the directorial début of Jonathan Nolan (brother of...

Person of Interest ‘Booked Solid’ Review!

Person of Interest ‘Booked Solid’ Review!

The Person of Interest episodes ‘Prisoner’s Dilemma’ and ‘Dead Reckoning’ were so far the two only hard-core mythology episodes besides the season première, unfortunately at the end of the two episodes we had lost CIA agents Kara Stanton and Snow as well as FBI agent Donnelly. This drained the series of some important blood and put some story arcs in serious jeopardy. I was now looking for an episode that could reestablish the mythology for season 2 and with this episode entitled ‘Booked Solid’...

Person of Interest ‘Booked Solid’ Preview!

Person of Interest ‘Booked Solid’ Preview!

Next Thursday Person of Interest will be back with the episode ‘Booked Solid’. Now that season 2 has been in full swing for a while it is time to look back. Has Person of Interest managed to live up to expectations? For the most part that answer is YES but there are plenty of gripes to be had with its second season. For one it took a while for the shows mythology to be brought to center-stage. Instead the procedural aspects of the show was...

Person of Interest ‘Prisoner’s Dilemma’ Review!

Person of Interest ‘Prisoner’s Dilemma’ Review!

Prisoner’s Dilemma is the 12th episode of PoI’s second season and can be considered as the episode that puts season 2 back on its track towards the finale. The plot of Prisoner’s Dilemma…. Carter is asked to question the four suspects. Finch keeps assists by creating fake information for Reese. Elias offers to help Reese but Reese refuses as the FBI knows The Man in the Suit has an affiliation with Elias. Finch bribes a suspect to tell the FBI who the man...

Person of Interest Season 2 – The Contingency – Preview!

It almost seems like yesterday that the first season of Person of Interest stopped airing. Perhaps the fact that Person of Interest spanned 23 episodes in its first season while maintaining a very high level of quality that it seems that just a short while ago Finch was kidnapped. The first epsiode of the second season of Perosn of Interest will air next Thursday September 27th. Now, as for The Contingency, below is the press release… “The Contingency” – With Finch...

Person of Interest Mission Creep review!

Person of Interest Mission Creep review!

    ‘Mission Creep’ is the third episode of Person of Interest and is for that matter it’s first ‘social-security-number-of-the-week’ episode. Meaning that the writer’s did not want to advance the mythology any further but instead wanted to concentrate on making an episode with the things that are already in its universe. Usually these episodes make up the bulk of a tv-series and as such are of a little lower quality than the mythology episodes. That is certainly the case with this...
