Person of Interest Season 2

Starts tonight!

This was definitely my favorite new show from last year and I've been looking forward to this new episode since the last minutes of the season 1 finale.

I'm eager to see the interactions of the fully formed team and how Fusco and Carter react to the knowledge of The Machine.

Will The Machine have an expanded roll? or will it just keep doling out numbers to the team?

Tonights episode: "The Contingency"

I'm looking forward to this, too. I like the idea of the machine being "alive," and how the characters will react to it. I'm also curious about the whereabouts of Finch--he's by far my favorite character.

I think we'll learn a lot about the Machine and Finch this season. Last season they delved into Reese's backstory more so I think it's Finch's turn this season.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

In the last few years, i have been hesitant on trying out any new shows, considering how the major networks kill things after a season. I found the concept of this show interesting, but never tuned in. Since i'm looking forward to Elementary, i'm gonna finally give this show a shot at 9pm.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

That was AWESOME. I loved the game play with the machine (although I don't believe a casino wouldn't notice you looking at your phone!) and I loved that the machine wanted to protect him. I got a kick out of the "USER ERROR" report and the "STAY" business. I hope Finch and John aren't apart all that long; they work better as a team.

And John now has a dog, who understands Austrian commands.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

I'm guessing that Reese and Carter will rescue Finch next episode and Root gets away. Amy Acker's almost too goergeous to be crazy batshit insane evil. She's good at being bad here just as she was in the 5th season of Alias.

I liked this series last season. "Starts tonight," huh? I'm already behind, lol.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

That was excellent. A superb follow on to last seasons finale. I like how it started just about right where the previous episode ended.

I wonder if the new teammate, who listens to Dutch commands, will stick around? Just like a dog to rip up a bunch of stuff when left alone!

I thought we were going to see how Finch got his limp, until I realized it was way too early in the timeline for that.

Fusco is one of my favorite characters, he's such a tragedy waiting to happen, so I was happy when Reese acknowledged him as a friend. I was hoping John would be nicer to him this season after all he had to go through last year.

Root may not have to be successful in her aim to unshackle The Machine. I think Reese is unwittingly helping it break its own bonds with his 'Do the math,' line.

Could this be a prequel to Colossus: The Forbin Project?

The little red light on the street camera made me think of HAL 9000.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

I loved the "sounds like a gag order" line

I thought they might have kept Ken Leung around for a few episodes to help John out with computer stuff.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

I hope they flesh out Root a little more. She seems like she's just some unbalanced psycho right now.

The history and connection between Finch and the machine was great! Reese "negotiating" on the street corner...bizarre and awesome at the same time.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

^ That WAS pretty good. I like Reese standing there, threatening the street camera, and the poor accountant standing there, thinking he's been rescued by a nut job.........until the phone rings.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

The finale from season one and this latest episode are really the best stuff the show has ever done. I just hope CBS lets the show veer away from the standard save-a-person-each-week procedural and into the more serialized and interesting direction it is going at the moment.

Also I love Reese still getting his badass moments in each episode. The quick shoot out in the bar, and the speech about Tikrit/training dogs and then the cut to the body flying out the window was great.

Re: Person of Interest Season 2

This is definitely the best new show from last season. My wife and I both love it. They were actually filming scenes on my street corner last Thursday and Friday but my we figured it out too late to see anything.
