Westworld S02E01 Journey into Night Review - Evan Rachel Wood as Dolores

Westworld S02E01 Journey into Night Review – the robots get the big picture

Westworld S02E01 Journey into Night Review For the last several days the fever around Westworld has been remarkable. It would call it an understatement that HBO is just pushing it to potentially replace Game of Thrones when that show ends. As much as I love these kinds of shows I remain totally uninterested in the promos, story analyses and cast interviews. I just want to watch the show. Now after almost a year and a half the second season of the...

Michael Emerson as Harold Finch. Person Of Interest S5Ep01 B.S.O.D. Review

Person Of Interest S5Ep01 B.S.O.D. Review

Person Of Interest S5Ep01 B.S.O.D. Review 5 years ago when I started SciFiEmpire one of the first articles I wrote was a preview of Person Of Interest. I felt excited and intrigued by the idea of Lost star Michael Emerson teaming up with Jim Caviezel to fight crimes before they occurred. It helped that big names such as Jonathan Noland and Bad Robot Productions were attached. Person Of Interest has managed to make every expectation come true, and then some. To...

Person Of Interest Season 5 cancelled

Person Of Interest Season 5 its last says J.J. Abrams

Person Of Interest Season 5 its last! Hot off the success of The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams has made some surprising statements. One of which was sort of expected but is still sad. Person of Interest season 5 may well be its last. At the Television Critics Association Abrams told reporters Saturday that “My guess is it is the final season. The only heartbreak there is how much good story there was to come if it were to have continued. Jonah [Nolan] and Greg...

Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman and Amy Acker at Comic Con 2015. Person of Interest Season 5 Preview

Person of Interest Season 5 Preview – Should it be the show’s last?

Person of Interest Season 5 Preview At this years Comic-Con in San Diego PoI’s cast and executive producer talked about the show’s future. After season 4 fans have started speculating whether or not Person Of Interest should wrap things up with a fifth season or whether there should only be a shortened 13-episode season to keep the story fresh and original. The issue with Person Of Interest has to do with the originality of the show. During the first season the premise...

Person of Interest S4Ep11 If-Then-Else Review

Person of Interest S4Ep11 If-Then-Else Review Person of Interest not only knows how to blow away half the cast but also the audience in this weeks spectacular episode. I had seen the preview trailer and I knew Denise The had written the episode. Yet I was still stunned how well it was crafted. The title is an allusion to the most basic method of programming run-time choices. This episode depicted events from the viewpoint of The Machine as it desperately...

Harold Finch testing The Machine in 2001 (Michael Emerson)

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...

Person of Interest Season 4 Preview - Root and Shaw in short dresses

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 A house Divided - Leslie Odom as Peter Collier Leader of Vigilance

Person Of Interest S3Ep22 A House Divided Review

A Sky Of Flame’s This is one strange episode of Person of Interest. I almost started hating it in the beginning. That was until I saw where it was slowly going with the plot. Both the dénouement between Hersh and Shaw and between Vigilance and Control are well worth the effort of carefully setting up the plot and the pace. It reminds of everything The Blacklist was not this week. PoI sometimes introduces slapstick humor or glances over just how hard it...

Become a Person of Interest during its 3rd season!

CBS has a new way to lure fans of the show into its third season. Now you can upload your photo to the show’s Facebook page, from there on it might just show up in the show at any moment during the course of its third season. As you may remember CBS had something similar to promote the show’s initial release. At subway stations in New York and some other places you could stand in front of a camera and your picture...

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...

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...

It will also star Jim Caviezel as former CIA agent ‘Reese’ who is presumed dead and helps Mr. Finch find the culprits of whatever crime that is set to happened. The pilot for this series was among the best recieved ever, so much...
