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...

Preview of 2014 Science-Fiction TV shows!

As the year 2013 has come to a close it is time to make up the balance and see what the year has meant for Science Fiction on TV. I will also be giving a preview of the Sci-Fi shows that will make their return or début during 2014. After a cursory view of the dates listed below you will also see that many shows will be back during the course of next week. I won’t be reviewing them all but I’ll...

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 - 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...

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...

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...

Detective Carter (Taraji P. Henson) trying to assassinate Alonzo Quinn with sniper rifle - Endgame - Person of Interest

Person of Interest S3Ep8 ‘Endgame’ Review!

This weeks episode ‘Endgame’ pushes Person of Interest into a higher gear as the deaths of Laskey and in particular of Cal Beecher from the previous season set events in motion that threaten the lives of Carter, Fusco and even Mr. Reese. Endgame is the first of three episodes that deals with the HR vs. Russian Mob feud but more importantly with HR vs. The Man In The Suit (AKA Mr. Reese). In the previous episode review I complained about Fusco’s...

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...

Sleepy Hollow - Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane & Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills

Whats wrong with TV these days?

This week was hardly a good week for TV. It was worse than last week which itself was already mediocre. It can be that we are spoiled with too many good TV shows and we are expecting to be confronted with cliffhangers and denouements every episode. It does seem that after the initial excitement of new TV-series and seasons we have entered a bit of a rut. That said, some new shows such as Sleepy Hollow will need to try hard to keep viewers...

Person of Interest - Jim Caviezel as Mr. Reese in Reasonable Doubt

Person of Interest S3Ep4 ‘Reasonable Doubt’ review!

This weeks episode of Person of Interest reminds of the episode ‘Mission Creep’ from the beginning of season 1. Sadly the remembrance gives this episode the feeling that it is a rehash. Again we are following a PoI who is capable of staying out the hands of organized crime, the police and as well as our team consisting of Mr. Reese, Mr. Finch and Mrs. Shaw. this episode puts in an extra flair of ‘The Fugitive’ as we are tracking District...

Sarah Shahi, Taraji P. Henson dressing up for nightclub in leather skirt - Person of Interest

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...

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...

Science-fiction & Fantasy fall 2013 TV schedule!

Haven. The first episode of Haven had already aired on the 13th of September. It was a good episode though it did have twists and turns that kind of destroyed the suspense. the shows creators seem to have taken up on certain criticism about the women in the show. Not only is Kate Kelton’s character Jordan not dead they have introduced a new female lead as well (Emma Lahana as Jennifer Mason). About Jordan, it is painfully clear she will be some sort...
