Which is fine, it's probably why the ratings have been so high. I'm sure, just as last season, even the standalone episodes will dole out some good bits of continuity.
True, but there were some tie-ins to what look to be the main arcs of the season.

Yeah, you gotta wonder what his old partner is up to; using Snow like she is.

Tonight the episode is called Triggerman.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

I have to admit I was somewhat disapointed in Triggerman.



The acting and production was top notch, as usual, but some of the plot points just fell flat with me.

Fusco just sat in a bar and gave his drinks away and Finch gave away his relationship with Reese to one of their most dangerous foes for nothing.

They also used one of the two cliches that bother me the most about TV shows. The first being that people always fall down when being chased, which they avoided, and the other is that people with bullet proof vests always rip their shirt open after being shot to show the viewers their bullet proof vest.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

Yeah I found it hard to believe that nobody would question why Fusco just kept ordering drinks and giving them away.

I didn't find the main plot that engaging either although it was nice to see Elias again.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

Well I think he kept giving them away when the bartender wasn't looking. He should have drank at least one or two of them, though, to make it look and smell like he was drinking. Other than that, I think this episode was a nice stand-alone, and I agree that it was nice seeing Elias. The chess match vaguely reminds me of Eric and Xavier in X-Men 2.

I wish they had done more with "Should we really save the killer or not?" angle more. otherwise it was a decent standalone episode.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

I liked last nights stand alone. There was some really good character moments.

I like how Reese didn't read Finch's notes on his bind date. Also the scene with Reese cleaning his gun that Finch didn't like; "People look at me weird when I do it in the park."

And Bear got a squeeky toy!

Concerning the plot, I didn't expect the bad guy to be who it turned out to be. The guy was just so unassuming I didn't even think twice about him.

So unassuming that when I finished the episode I didn't even remember who he was. I had to go back through the episode and find out he was the head of the campaign of the guy running for Mayor.

Me, too. I liked the look on Finch's face when he was hiding in the closet full of weapons. I also was glad that they got back to the HR plot and didn't just dump it and move on.

"A little stingy on the sprinkles."

Great episode and another interesting look at the Machine's beginnings; computer dating!

The plot reminded me of a combination of the superb 1947 noir, Out of the Past, and the excellent James Caan movie, Thief.

My favorite scenes were when Finch was installing the security system for his "boss" and when Reese was rappelling down the side of the building.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

Is there any legit website to see the episode? Could not see the episode last week due to Sandy.

Strange. It's been pulled from Hulu and Amazon--even season 1. And they no longer show full episodes on the website after they've aired. I wonder why?

Some perspective please.

That was Alicia Witt standing beside him the whole time.

david's marriage/relationships sitcom "traffic light", although cancelled after 13 episodes, was both clever and funny.

Holy shit, he was Skip on Angel!

That demon was badass
