Person of Interest – Super preview!

Person of Interest – Super preview!

Next Thursday Person of Interest will be back from its hiatus for the last bunch of episodes of its first season (though a full season of 22 episodes had been confirmed news on this is scarce). Frankly this series is easily the best stuff o tv right now and its still getting better. The next episode is called Super and refers to Reese and Finch’s next person of interest as he is a building super who takes a close interest in his tenants. Here...

Person of Interest – Number Crunch review!

Person of Interest – Number Crunch review!

‘Number Crunch’ is the tenth episode of Person of Interest to air, and if I didn’t know better I would say that this was a season finale as it ends on an almighty cliffhanger. Yet, I do know better. Season 1 is supposed to have 13 episodes even if it’s not clear when the other three episodes will air. One thing that I have stated many times before when reviewing Person of Interest episodes is that this show manages to reinvent itself time and time...

Person of Interest – Get Carter review!

Person of Interest – Get Carter review!

This ninth episode of Person of interest is entitled ‘Get Carter’ and refers as a pun to both the Michael Cain movie and the fact that all the villains in this story are gunning for Detective Carter (Taraji Henson). Person of Interest meanwhile seems to continue its run of good ratings and such is almost guaranteed to get a second season, the only gripe I have with the series is that the sci-fi elements have almost completely disappeared. After the pilot and the second...

Person of Interest – Get Carter preview!

Next Thursday Person of Interest will be back after a short hiatus. Before the hiatus the series arch criminal Elias was introduced. That left one loose string, namely detective Carter’s rather sidelined appearance on this show. Ever since the series premier we have had to see her show up at the crimes Reese solved hours after he has left. So far she is also under misguided opinion that his deeds are are not altruistic. This weeks episode is entitled ‘Get Carter’...

Person of Interest – Foe review!

Person of Interest – Foe review!

It’s been a short week since Foe was on the air and I haven’t managed to write a review about it yet. The episode was good but not great. the first half was perhaps better than most PoI episodes but the latter haf lingrered a bit with too much drama and some unlikely escapes for reese… As for the story… Reese and Finch track former Stasi agent Ulrich Kohl (Alan Dale) across New York City. Kohl believes that his former...

Person of Interest ‘Foe’ preview!

Person of Interest ‘Foe’ preview!

Foe is the 8th episode of Person of Interest. The show starring Jim Caviezel and Micheal Emerson is really starting to get into higher gear with the revelation of the main antagonist ‘Elias’ (played by Enrico Colantoni) in the previous episode. Here is an excerpt from the press release… “Foe” – When Reese and Finch discover that their latest POI has connections to  Cold War Soviet espionage circles, they quickly learn how covert ops were  handled in a world before The Machine,...

Person of Interest “Witness” review!

Person of Interest “Witness” review!

This weeks episode finally sees the appearance of a major antagonist for this series. The bad guys name is ‘Elias’ and as was revealed in previous episodes is related to the old italian mob and is actively seeking revenge against the Russian mob who have control over some of the old italian territories. This episode thus actively progresses the mythology of Person of Interest and also brings detective Carter and Fusco much closer to Reese and Finch. No further background information on either...

Person of Interest ‘The Fix’ Review!

Person of Interest ‘The Fix’ Review!

After watching the sixth episode of Person of Interest I was once again amazed at how different the setting and feeling of the story was from earlier episodes. This shows seems to be able to renew itself over and over again. There are a small number of downsides to this continuous change such as a mythology which as of yet has an unspecified direction, for the moment I am not too bothered about that. However that said, this episode, though spectacular, was...

Person of Interest ‘The Fix’ preview!

Person of Interest ‘The Fix’ preview!

I am sorry that I have been away from my website for a while, its been hell with my education. Luckily there was a two week period of non-activity for most series, tonight Person of Interest is the first back on TV and the synopsis seems promising. The last two episode of Person of Interest were very good though Cura Te Ipsum ended on an unresolved cliff-hanger that has been bugging me alot. As for ‘The Fix’… Reese takes the...

Person of Interest ‘Cura Te Ipsum’ review!

Person of Interest ‘Cura Te Ipsum’ review!

This weeks episode of Person of Interest is entitled ‘Cura Te Ipsum’, which is latin for ‘Cure your self’, which you will find out watching this episode has a double meaning. The episode is remarkedly different from the last one, suddenly characters like detective Fusco and Carter are back and are more important. The writing teams has managed to keep an unusual rough edge to the story ever since the pilot that really makes this tv-series stand apart, in part...

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...

Person of Interest episode 2 ‘Ghosts’ review!

Person of Interest episode 2 ‘Ghosts’ review!

The second episode of Person of Interest almost feels like a second pilot for the series. Not only is more background revealed but more questioned are asked, more rules are made (and broken) and the series defiantly declares that its off-beat and won’t use the machine that identifies crimes as a ‘deus ex machina’. The episode is tightly written, alot happens in the space of 45 minutes and so its going to be a long read to fully understand the plot...

Person of Interest Pilot review!

Person of Interest Pilot review!

The background of Person of interest has already been into quite enough, its a new scifi-crime show produced by J.J Abrams for CBS starring Michael Emerson and James Caviezel. It is intended to offer a sort of CSI kind if popularity for science but in this case not DNA/fingerprint stuff but more surveillance and computer information. The science behind it won’t be explained too much but it does appear at least a effort was made not to be too outlandish....
