Person of Interest Season 3



With the Machine on the move, Root and Shaw added to the cast, I'm really looking forward to the new stories.

Tonight at 10pm!

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Last nights episode was pretty good, though not spectacular like the last two of the previous season. All the cast got some good screen time and contributed to the resolution. The new girls had some great lines and Carter seems to be working on her own thing now.

I really cant see Finch drinking a Boilermaker, though, and I missed Bear.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Watched it last night. It was a solid season opener but nothing mind blowing. I think they are taking Shaw's tough as nails persona a little too far with that scene of her eating a steak off a knife though. That was a bit much. You can be tough and still enjoy a proper meal.

Also, there was a scene with Bear in it but it was pretty short.

Considering her history in special ops, eating like that is nothing out of the ordinary. Man or woman, anyone that is used to be eating on the run or in situations away from a table and such, just stabbing a steak and eating it like that is really kind of normal. I know just on campouts and hikes, most people I"m with don't tend to use plates if they can avoid it.

Pretty average opener, but I like Root freaking out the poor psychiatrist.

I hope the additional cast doesn't cut short Finch's screen time. I'm really hoping to see more about him this season.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

Tonight's episode was good.

The segments with Root were kinda amusing. Like a sociopathic mad genius turning the tables.


"Person of Interest" also got an off-network syndication deal with WGN America. (ie. Most likely there will be a season 4).

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

The POI himself was pretty lame, but the remainder of the episode was good. There were some memorable scenes; Shaw and Reese in the boat, the ladies and their weapons, Root's semi-God-Mode escape and Bear's giant bone.

I thought it was a great episode. The scenes with Root really stole the show.

Not a bad episode tonight--a bit predictable, except the ending. But, EESSH, the guest star actress was awful. At first I thought her voice had been dubbed over, but I realized she was just a very bad actress.

I love this show and I don't think I've ever watched an episode I didn't enjoy, until last night.

Agree. Kathleen Rose Perkins was not impressive at all, especially when she opened her mouth. It was like she was slow reading the script trying to pronounce each word correctly, you know lke teaching a little kid to read.

Reminded me of a Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode Paradise (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradis...eep_Space_Nine)).

The actress that played Alixus (Gail Strickland) ...



Her voice was horrible. Made we look at the TV and say "is she doing this on purpose?"

They had to give it some kind of twist so that it didn't resemble Double Jeopardy too much.

Apparently the actress struggled to find work for six years and had to take other jobs to support herself.

You know, I thought I was the only one that was driven bonkers by Gail Strickland in that episode, but I guess not. Her voice modulated up and down in these peculiar and annoying ways. I agree with you, just a horrible voice.

Sad to say, but I also agree with you about this episode of PoI being the first true stinker in 3 seasons. The WAY too complicated scheme by the lawyer couple, the marring of the photo to clue Carter and Finch to the wife's true feelings , and our heroes being fooled WAY too easily. This was a standard episode from a lesser show, not a PoI episode, which are typically head and shoulders above this sort of tripe.

Still: Three seasons in and this is the first episode that felt subpar to me -- that's a pretty fine success ratio.

That season one episode where John had to babysit some kid played by an X-Factor contestant seemed pretty bad to me.

Even if you count that as two, it's still one of the strongest series I can remember and light years stronger than any trek.

Re: Person of Interest Season 3

How wonderful is Bear? Not only can he act sick, he catches bad guys! And he's so happy to get "an expensive chew toy." I love that dog!

Oh, and last episode? The gun comparison was great! I like how they're incorporating the ladies. Not too much, but enough.
