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...

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...

Scarface played by David Valcin. Person of Interest S4Ep9 The Devil You Know Review

Person of Interest S4Ep9 The Devil You Know Review

Invictus Maneo It is strange that this episode of Person of Interest had so many one-liners. It makes it hard to choose a suitable subtitle. Would it be ‘there is always a way out’? Reese (Jim Caviezel) would have liked that. Or Dominic’s line ‘the game within a game’, but that sounds too much like a tagline from a Frank Herbert book. Both Elias and his right-hand man Scarface (real name Anthony) used the Latin phrase Invictus Maneo which means ‘I remain Unvanquished’. For...

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...

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 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...

Person Of Interest S3Ep13 ‘4C’ Preview

Last week’s episode of PoI ‘Aletheia’ was one hell of ride. The C.I.A led by Control and Hersh finally caught up with Harold and Shaw. Only the gun-blazing intervention of Root saved them but she was captured instead. During the torture she had to endure Root revealed that she can hear sound waves inaudible to others and thus can receive information from The Machine. Speaking as is she were The Machine she made it clear how she could hurt Control...

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...

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...

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...

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...
